Earnings this quarter were $45.9M and $0.39 per share, down from $49.7M and $0.42 per share. CEO Joe Alvarado is already projecting a slowdown for the second quarter as the holidays and seasonal weather have both reduced construction operations.

Commercial Metals maintains a cash position of $515.5M in cash and cash equivalents with $1.2B in liquidity, a jump from a year-ago with $378.8M in cash and cash equivalents with $1.1B in liquidity.
