Rusal's inclusion on the new U.S. sanctions list have caused enormous damage to the Company's international operations, as well as financial stability and market confidence, which was reflected in a strong fall in the price of Rusal's shares. I don't believe, that Rusal would be excluded from the sanctions list in the mid-term, so I have negative outlook for the Company's shares.
My bullish view on the Rusal's shares reflects the expectations that the Company would be excluded from the U.S. sanctions list. As far as I know the Company is open to negotiations and is ready to make concessions for lifting the sanctions. I believe that after the lifting of the sanctions we will see rapid increase in price in the Company's shares in combo with the continued recovery in aluminium prices and metal premiums. Therefore I recommend to buy the Company's stocks.
