Investopedia: It's Volatile, But Materion Is Worth A Look
Specialty metals and materials don't often end up looking so special, as they are often just as cyclical as other industrial metals like copper or zinc. That said, Materion (NYSE:MTRN)
has consistently looked to find new value-added uses for beryllium and
related alloys, ceramics and specialty products. Admittedly, the
company's long-term cash flow production and returns on capital
are not stellar, but recoveries in consumer electronics and telecom
equipment could push this company into another cyclical upswing.
