A Little Bit About the Companies:
New Oriental Education and Technology Group provides private English and other foreign language training in the United States, the People’s Republic of China, and Commonwealth countries. The fool.com website recently called the stock “one of China’s buried treasures.”
Competitors for EDU include: Princeton Review Inc. (REVU), and Kaplan, Inc. (private).
Buffalo Wild Wings Inc provides quick and casual dining service, as well as serves bottled beers, wines, and liquor. The stock recently split and Fortune magazine recently ran an article on the company with the title, “Where Wings are Hot, and the Stock’s Hotter.”
Competitors for BWLD include: Applebee’s International Inc. (APPB), Carlson Restaurants Worldwide, Inc. (private), and Hooters of America, Inc. (private).
Century Aluminum through its subsidiaries, produces aluminum in North America. BMO Capital Markets analyst Victor Lazarovici downgraded Century last week, but accompanied the downgrade with the following statement, “However, we continue to believe aluminum’s fundamentals remain solid and prices are rising, underpinning higher earnings and cash flow for producers.” Does this mean higher or lower stock price? You be the judge.
Competitors for CENX include: Alcan, Inc. (AL), Alcoa Inc. (AA), and Ormet Corporation (private).
Aluminum Corporation of China LTD. engages in the production and sale of aluminum in the People’s Republic of China. The fool.com website touted this stock yesterday in its article entitled, “3 Stocks Hooking Up.” Also, metals and emerging markets are in vogue right now with investors.
Alcoa Aluminum engages in the production and sale of primary aluminum, fabricated aluminum, and alumina worldwide. At the forefront of the recent news surrounding this company was BHP Billiton Ltd’s potential takeover bid. Lately, though, many analysts are publicly expressing their skepticism on whether any deal will take place.
Competitors for AA include: Alcan, Inc. (AL), Hydro Aluminium AS (private), RUSAL (private), Accuride Corp. (ACW), Aleris Intl. Inc. (ARS), BHP Billiton Ltd. (BHP), Ball Corp. (BLL), Century Aluminum Co. (CENX), Carbo Ceramics Inc. (CRR), Novelis Inc. (NVL), Quanex Corp. (NX), and Precision Castparts Corp. (PCP).
