  • suffocating on unpayable debt.
    pump and dump at its finest.
    collapse pending.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • massive gap to fill on the chart. next week the gap support is 31
    as stock is far higher, thus steep decline likely. And that is only if
    the gap support holds which may not happen, so 30 is very possible
    as it is the middle area of the gap, and this gap will fill.
    Then you have X having already reached most of the analyst full year
    targets today, and it traded off hard. There is no more fast money here,
    just a consolidation that is long overdue. Shorts were trapped but no more,
    there will be fresh shorting and large long selling because the overall market
    has many bargains now, and X is no longer a bargain. X is what they will
    unload. Sell.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    there are no sellers here. insider ownership is like 75%. they are in their 70s and perhaps ready to sell the company which has a bank loan and big property values with great travel visitor reviews to their parks.

    Sentiment: Buy

    MT only has a debt-to-equity ratio of .37. its near term d/e is only .48. Do you realize that X has a d/e of both over 1.0 yet has gained from 23 to 33 due to cost-cutting and improving steel demand ?
    MT is in better shape than X and has a book value of 27.

    Sentiment: Buy

    agreed, but the problem is that MT earnings are coming out at a time when the overall Eurozone news has been bad today. So if MT reports tomorrow and the EU markets are down, it could put a damper on effects, but that would only delay the reaction until EU has some green days, so the bigger gains could come not "on" MT earnings, but shortly after.

    Sentiment: Buy

    MT share price should pop on better earnings

    although it is certainly possible these shares will rise significantly on earnings, the base argument is strong that for the long term this is a very attractive investment because it's revenues are around 80 billion and its market cap is only 25 billion. It's "the" steel co of a continent and has a serviceable debt which is low risk especially with the ECB keeping rates almost nothing for years to come and Draghi promising "qe". It may not take much for the market cap to approach 35-40 Billion from its 25 which suggests a roughly 50% share price gain could be in hand... ultimately more if they perform a true turnaround, on valuation it is more attractive than its American peers especially after today's 20% spike in US Steel.

    Sentiment: Buy

    buyout chance appears low now. but who knows. doesn't matter, maybe it will get bought out in a year for $50 instead.

    Sentiment: Buy

    The conference call was a 8/10 very solid performance by all and reasonably good questions
    except for Stifel whose analyst sounded like a teenager. All other questions well asked and answered
    and strong arguments to stay invested. Anticipate increased institutional buying and short covering.
    Only dissapointment was no questions about buyout. (although "no comment" would be sure)
    Stay long. There is no reason to be short this company at this price.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Conference Call wasn't a homerun

    your post is 24 minutes old, but the CC is still ongoing with Q&A round.
    this, of course, makes your comment obvious crapola.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • texas pacific was bidding also but walked out. after a formal bid by this hedge fund
    expect possible more formal bids once public announcement is made which board must
    entertain.
    source is calcalist from israel
    no signature "yet" but it's only monday.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
