Alcoa Inc. (AA) Up-date 8 July 6, 2009
Paul A. Ebeling, Jr. Analyst
Today let’s look at Alcoa, Inc. (AA), one of the world’s top producers of aluminum, from a Technical POV.

There is a Homing Pigeon on July 1 and two Gaps open up between Mar 19 and June 1, 2009 at 5.65/9.31, the near term resistance is 10.39, support at 9.61 and the 50 day (EMA) exponential moving average is 9.94. This is Alcoa, Inc. (AA): Alcoa is among the world's top producers of alumina (aluminum's principal ingredient, processed from bauxite) and aluminum. Its vertically integrated operations include bauxite mining, alumina refining, and aluminum smelting; primary products include alumina and its chemicals,
automotive components, and sheet aluminum for beverage cans. The company's non-aluminum products include fiber-optic cables. Major markets include the aerospace, automotive, and construction industries. In 2007 Alcoa offered to buy what was then the world's #3 aluminum producer, Alcan, for US$33B but was trumped by Rio Tinto's US$40B offer. The next year it sold its packaging business to the Rank Group. The Competitive Landscape Demand comes largely from the manufacturers of durable goods like motor vehicles, machinery, containers, and construction steel. The profitability of individual companies depends largely on efficient operations, because most products are commodities sold based on price. Big companies have large economies of scale in production. Accordingly, most producers of secondary products buy raw metal from the large producers. Small companies can compete by operating efficient local mini-mills or producing specialty products. The industry is highly automated: average annual revenue per worker is close to US$300,000.

ChevronTexaco Corporation (CVX) Up-date 9 July 6, 2009 Paul A. Ebeling, Jr. Analyst Today letâ€™s have a look at ChevronTexaco Corporation (CVX), the US Oil Giant, from a Technical POV. The overall indications, after Thursdayâ€™s (July 2, 2009) market action, are Bearish: in the near term Bearish, mid-term Bearish, and long term Bearish. Current Candle Stick analysis; Bullish

Latest News: Wall St Week Ahead: Earnings to set tone for stocks http://www.reuters.com/article/marketsNews/idAFN0511961620090705?rpc=44 Thursdayâ€™s Market Action Close 64.42
There is a Homing Pigeon on July 1 and two Gap open down between June 22, and July 2, 2009 at 67.37/65.78, the near term resistance is 67.00, support at 63.64, and the 50 day (EMA) exponential moving average is 67.44. This is ChevronTexaco Corporation (CVX): Texaco's star and its Chevron stripes allow this US Oil Giant to have market clout. It is the 2nd largest US integrated oil company behind Exxon Mobil and has proved reserves of 10.8 B bbls of crude oil equivalent and a daily production of 2.6 MM bbls of crude oil equivalent, and it also owns interests in chemicals, pipelines, and power production businesses. The company, which is restructuring its refinery and retail businesses, owns or has stakes in 9,700 gas
stations in the US which operate under the Chevron and Texaco brands. Outside the US it owns or has stakes in 15,400 gas stations, which also use the Caltex brand. The Competitive Landscape Demand is driven by federal legislation and regulations that establish a government-mandated market for bio-fuels. The profitability of bio-fuel production facilities depends on prices of gas and diesel, which fluctuate based on world petroleum demand and domestic refinery utilization. Economies of scale in ethanol production are limited due to the transportation costs associated with gathering feed stocks (corn and other biomasses) and transporting the ethanol to blending sites. As a result, large companies operate multiple production facilities. Small companies can compete effectively by developing business relations with distributors and being able to assure delivery consistently. Revenue per employee in ethanol production facilities is about US$1MMper year.

ChemGenex currently trades on the Australian Stock Exchange under the symbol "CXS" and on NAS under the symbol "CXSP". Competitive Landscape Demand for pharmaceutical manufacture is driven by the desire to cure illness and disease. The profitability of individual companies depends on their ability to discover and market new drugs. Large companies benefit from their economies of scale in research, manufacturing, and marketing. Small companies can compete effectively by specializing in drugs that target one or two specific ailments. The industry is capital-intensive: average annual revenue per worker is about US$700,000. Pharmaceuticals Manufacture Industry Forecast The output of US drug manufacturing is forecast to grow at an annual compounded rate of 8% between 2008 and 2013.

The company was founded in 1928 and is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Competitive Landscape Demand is related to eating trends and to the changing structure of the grocery industry. Profitability for individual companies is determined by efficiency of operations. Large companies have scale advantages in procurement, production, and distribution. Small companies can compete by offering specialty goods or superior local distribution services. Despite high automation, the low value of the product produces a fairly modest US$150,000 in annual revenue per employee for commercial bakers.

The profitability of individual companies depends on technical expertise and the ability to accurately price long-term contracts. Large companies enjoy economies of scale in design, manufacturing, and purchasing. Small companies can compete effectively by concentrating on selected components and parts manufacturing for particular prime contractors.
