11-12-2019: Arconic Shares Rise on Prospects


One company that has been around for a relatively short time in its present spun-off form but for a long time in other forms, is Arconic, Inc. It at one point WAS the Aluminum Company of America (Alcoa). Alcoa continues to exist in its basic metals aluminum producing form, while Arconic deals more with engineered metal-fabricated materials and parts. It supplies essential parts to major aircraft manufacturers but has also entered other diversified lines of business including building materials.

The stock has been the subject of everything from a class action lawsuit to buyouts or takeovers causing the stock share price occasionally to jump out of its modest trading range on rumors. Also affecting the stock is a lot of activist intervention, partcularly from Elliot International.

Because of the essential nature of some of its products, we think the stock will remain stable but subject to sufficient ups and downs to make it interesting for short-term traders. 

Our recent article on Arconic, Inc. (ARNC) is in the Archives Section Below.


Zenith's Active List of 39 Stocks as of 11/02/2019

(Updated once a week, usually on Saturday except when less than 5 trading days in the week.)

Note: Zenith tries to pick only stocks which are shortable, but sometimes stocks appear afterward on the SEC Regulation SHO list of stocks which are not shortable, which is beyond our control. On some stocks, Zenith may hold more than the number of shares it trades in its inventory. Thus the "short" sale of such a security would technically not be a "short" sale for us and not subject to SEC rules regarding selling securities which are not deliverable. Also, stocks pop on and off the list available for shorting on successive days, so the presence of a stock on the current SHO list doesn't mean it was there at the time it was shorted.

Stocks recently restricted by SEC Rule 201 as not shortable unless we already have a position which are on our Active List include: HMSY (2/11)
