On CAPS, 95% of the 267 members who have rated Alumina believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, WilliamCrook2003, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Alumina stock is a bargain at this share price and five years from now will have appreciated more than the S&P will have done. Aluminum stock piles will have become depleted in 2013 and production will have to be increased to make up for the shortfalls of this resource.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Alumina may not be your top choice.

    The article indicates a 6.1% dividend yield.

    Does anyone know if a dividend has been announced? Is there a possibility that it will be less or that a dividend will not be paid? I haven't seen anything. Thanks.
