Alcoa recently reported first quarter net income of $355 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, more than double the $151 million, or $0.17, in the first quarter of 2003, and up 22% from $291 million, or $0.33, in the previous quarter. Income from continuing operations was $350 million, or $0.40, up 79% from the $195 million, or $0.23, in the first quarter of 2003, and higher than the $340 million, or $0.39, in the previous quarter. The previous quarter's results included $105 million in pre-tax gains from insurance settlements and a lower effective tax rate. The first quarter benefits from a $58 million after-tax gain on the sale of the chemicals business, half of which was offset by higher costs from a customer bankruptcy, litigation settlements and restructuring.
