Alcoa Wins Another Major Contract, Investors Shrug Off News


Alcoa Inc (NYSE: AA) announced on Thursday it has won a long-term supply agreement to supply components to Boeing Co (NYSE: BA).

Alcoa's stock opened for trading at $7.17 and quickly dipped to an intra-day low of $6.14 before rebounding to the $7.00-level by early afternoon.

As part of the agreement, Alcoa's Forgings and Extrusions segment will supply differentiate components for Boeing's airplanes, including the wing, fuselage, and landing gear.
