massively lowered the bar (.65) back to where the trough in aluminum/earnings was in 06. AA just sold a 2bil china stake in chalco recently. That alone is about 25% of Q revenue! Potential for a pop in rev/earnings if they factor it in (assuming they don't "exclude" one time gains of course ... how likely is that?). <a href="http://tinypic.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i24.tinypic.com/2zq9454.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> Risky here, considering there is a huge amount of resistance to overcome on broader mkt., spyders (oct.. etc), but -- I'd say from all the above, it looks like they could pull off stellar numbers above lowered expectations tonight. JMHO. Any other thoughts?
