9. Noranda Aluminum (NOR - Get Report) is a North America-based integrated producer of aluminum products and rolled aluminum coils. The company operates in two business segments: metals -- its upstream business; and rolled products -- its downstream business.

For the latest first quarter ended March 2011, the company reported earnings of $38.3 million, or 56 cents per share, compared to a loss of $0.1 million, or break even per share in the year-ago quarter. Revenue for the period soared 30.9% year-over-year to $394.6 million from $301.5 million, resulting primarily from higher realized prices for aluminum and bigger third-party shipment volumes in the bauxite, primary aluminum, and flat rolled products segments.
