    • Alcoa (AA +5.2%) continues its unlikely march higher, as J.P. Morgan predicts tightening aluminum markets and higher prices will boost earnings.
    • "Given the pace and amount at which premiums have recently increased, it is clearly difficult to forecast for how long they will remain near current levels which we believe provide a significant amount of earnings support to [Alcoa]’s primary aluminum smelting operations," the firm writes.
    • The firm upgrades AA shares to Overweight from Neutral with a $15 price target, up from $9, and raises Century Aluminum (CENX +5.3%) to Overweight from Underweight with a $13 target, up from $6.
    • Also: AWC +5.5%, KALU +0.5%, ACH +0.2%, NOR +4.5%.

    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)
