    Alumina (AWC) soars 11% premarket after China's Citic says it will take a 13% stake in the Australian company for about $468M. The price represents a 3% premium to Alumina's previous Sydney close. The big move in the stock suggests to some Citic may seek a total takeover of the company.

    Alcoa (AA -2.7%) is selling off after announcing a restructuring plan meant to cope with a weak demand/pricing environment, and is taking some other aluminum makers down with it. NOR -5.6%. ACH -3%. AWC -2.6%. Dahlman Rose (Buy) thinks Alcoa's move will help stabilize aluminum prices; other aluminum producers have also been cutting output. (previously)

    A series of rate increases, epic cyclones, and biblical flooding are doing wonders for Australian shares, which closed at levels not seen since April. Strength in mining stocks combined with surprisingly good results from the banking sector power the most recent move. ETFs: EWA, KROO.
