Trader Radar - Wednesday October 8th

Q: On Fast Money’s trader radar we look at the stock that was lighting up screens across Wall Street. This company provided material for the construction of the Empire State building in the 1930’s. The No. 1 producer of aluminum in the country also has the distinction of being the first member of the Dow to report earnings each quarter. But even though the company’s products stand tall, its latest earnings report fell short, causing the shares to plunge. Who is it?

A: On the trader radar tonight we’re watching Alcoa! The biggest US aluminum producer was among the most active names on the NYSE today.
