Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates CENTURY ALUMINUM CO as a Buy with a ratings score of B-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate CENTURY ALUMINUM CO (CENX) a BUY. This is driven by a number of strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance, good cash flow from operations, impressive record of earnings per share growth and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins."
