Allegheny Technologies hopes that you will not regard him as a steel company, although its stock is one of the constituent stocks of the Dow Jones Steel Index and its stock price often rises and falls in synchronization with companies such as U.S. Steel Corporation and Nucor . But what really makes Allegheny’s stock the best-performing stock in the S&P 500 index is not steel, but its specialty metals business, especially titanium, because the rapid development of the aerospace industry consumes a lot of titanium.
Titanium produced by Allegheny, as well as nickel and tantalum, which have similar uses, are key materials for making aircraft engines. Boeing also uses titanium alloys on the fuselage of its new 787 Dreamliner. Almost all of the company’s end markets are booming. The company’s stainless steel alloys can be used to produce storage tanks for ethanol, and can also be used in the oil and gas fields. Rare metals such as zirconium and hafnium can be used in nuclear power plants.
In addition, metals such as niobium-titanium alloy produced by Allegheny are gradually occupying the medical market, and these metals can be used in nuclear magnetic resonance equipment.
