- Alcoa (NYSE:AA) closes on its $1.5B acquisition of RTI International Metals (NYSE:RTI), integrating the company as a standalone business unit unto its downstream engineered products and solutions segment, and announces a realignment of its downstream segment into two separate units.
- The RTI acquisition expands AA's reach into the titanium market as well as its advanced technologies and materials capabilities, most notably in the aerospace market.
- Sterne Agee CRT says the realignment will allow the high value aerospace assets to be more independent; while Alcoa has stated in the past that a break-up is prevented by technical support overlap, the realignment further silos the aerospace focused operations.

- Alcoa (AA -4%) remains sharply lower following mixed Q1 results and its expectations for global aluminum production to exceed demand by 326K metric tons in 2015, compared with its earlier forecast of a 38K ton deficit.
- Most analysts continue to keep the faith, defending their bullish stances even as they curb estimates: Citigroup reiterates its Buy rating, saying Q2 could be a tough quarter as the rolled-products businesses face headwinds but noting that Alcoa still expects to generate positive free cash flow of at least $500M in 2015 while growing its asset portfolio, and Sterne Agee is one of several firms to reaffirm a Buy rating as AA alters its cost structure and increases value-added products.
- BMO Capital is a voice of dissent, calling Q1 a good start for the company but seeing a challenging outlook ahead; it rates the stock Market Perform with a $14 target.
- Metal fabricator RTI International Metals (RTI -3.9%), which AA recently agreed to acquire, and aluminum producing peer Century Aluminum (CENX -5.4%) are both lower; also, KALU -1.5%, NOR -1.8%, ATI +0.3%.
- Earlier: Alcoa points to lower open after mixed Q1, but analysts still say Buy

- Titanium suppliers Allegheny Technologies (NYSE:ATI), Precision Castparts (NYSE:PCP) and RTI International Metals (NYSE:RTI) should benefit near and long term from supply chain de-risking in response to geopolitical instability in Russia, Credit Suisse says, seeing a secular positive through the cycle for titanium producers.
- New platforms from Boeing and Airbus are expected to be 12%-16% titanium by purchase weight compared to high single-digits in current gen platforms, which the firm says could result in as much as 50% growth in titanium consumption in aerospace over the next five years.
- The report didn't help shares today: ATI -4.8%, PCP -1.2%, RTI -2.6%.

- BA and UTX are said to have been stockpiling as much as six extra months' supply of highly customized titanium forgings.
