Recent News & Updates
Ball Is Getting Very Attractive At The Current Levels
Ball is the largest producer of aluminum beverage cans in the world and is still investing in expanding its production. Q1 was weak despite posting an adjusted EPS increase compared to Q1 last year. Inflation is hurting the company, but new contracts allow Ball to pass through the higher expenses to its customers. I had written some put options, which will now likely expire in the money, so it's looking like I will be a Ball shareholder soon enough.
