    ALU's story is a strange story
    it does not matter what happens, it goes down
    the CAC is going up, ALU is going down
    good news are out, ALU goes down
    many new contracts, ALU goes down
    All of a sudden, ALU goes up a few days in a Raw 30 35% up
    then the Saga continue
    the market is down, alu is down
    the market is up, alu is down
    Ceo resign, alu is down
    new Ceo is hired, Alu is down
    it is a big game, and the big players are making tons of cash while we small investors are loosing our shirts

    There is always next week hey serge9? You summarized the ALU story well. New CEO buys them more time but patients is wearing thin. Some dramatic news or earnings surprise up would restore faith.

    If the Mafia runs Italy, why would anybody worry about them?
