How Century Aluminum (CENX) Stock Stands Out in a Strong Industry

Zacks

One stock that might be an intriguing choice for investors right now is Century Aluminum Company CENX. This is because this security in the Metal Products – Procurement and Fabrication space is seeing solid earnings estimate revision activity, and is in great company from a Zacks Industry Rank perspective.

This is important because, often times, a rising tide will lift all boats in an industry, as there can be broad trends taking place in a segment that are boosting securities across the board. This is arguably taking place in the Metal Products – Procurement and Fabrication space as it currently has a Zacks Industry Rank of 42 out of more than 250 industries, suggesting it is well-positioned from this perspective, especially when compared to other segments out there.

Meanwhile, Century Aluminum is actually looking pretty good on its own too. The firm has seen solid earnings estimate revision activity over the past month, suggesting analysts are becoming a bit more bullish on the firm’s prospects in both the short and long term.
