BHP Billiton considers Alcoa acquisition

Officials from Australia’s BHP Billiton are expected to decide in the next two weeks whether to buy aluminum giant Alcoa of Pittsburgh, according to a July 16 article from Forbes.

Financial analysts worldwide say a BHP bid for Alcoa would likely range between $51 per share to $59 per share, according to a same-day report from SeekingAlpha.com.
