    President Trump Launches Multifront Battle against China

    As we noted previously, China is now focusing on advanced manufacturing. After having lost the battle for low-end manufacturing to China, the United States doesn’t want to give away one of its bastions easily. In another move, the United States has imposed sanctions on the Chinese military for buying weapons systems from Russia.

    Why China Is Finding It Difficult to Export Its Steel Woes

    China’s steel and aluminum overcapacity has earned it the ire of several countries. While formally, the country has a policy of curtailing its excess industrial capacity and has apparently taken some steps in that direction, it still has considerable overcapacity. Meanwhile, China’s Belt and Road Initiative was expected to help it tide over some of its industrial overcapacity by investing in infrastructure beyond its borders.

    US Steel Stocks: Is Margin of Safety Still There?

    US steel stocks, including U.S. Steel Corporation (X) and Nucor (NUE), have whipsawed this year. At the beginning of the year, we saw some bullishness in the steel space on optimism over Section 232 tariffs. However, even as US steel prices surged to a decade high, investors stayed cold to steel stocks. Cleveland-Cliffs (CLF) has been an exception, rising 68.6% year-to-date based on its September 21 closing price.

    Everyone Wants a Piece of the Thriving Steel Industry Pie

    Six Months of Tariffs: Has US Steel Industry Bounced Back? The US steel industry has seen an increase in profitability this year as President Donald Trump’s Section 232 tariffs have raised US steel prices (DIA). Nucor (NUE) and Steel Dynamics (STLD) posted record earnings in the second quarter, and earnings are expected to rise even more in the third quarter.

    US Steel Prices Hold Their Ground despite Record Spreads

    US steel prices have risen sharply this year as President Trump clamped down on imports by imposing a 25% tariff under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962. US steel prices have skyrocketed, but globally, there hasn’t been a similar uptick in prices. The net result is that the spreads between US and international steel prices widened to record highs.

    Six Months of Tariffs: Has US Steel Industry Bounced Back?

    Section 232 tariffs came into effect on March 23, 2018. It’s been six months, so it’s a good time to see how they’ve impacted the US steel industry. When the tariffs were first announced, there were no exemptions on a country level. However, even before the tariffs came into effect, we saw exemptions for several regions, including NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) companies and the European Union.

    China’s Economic Model Faces Some Serious Threats

    China (FXI) became the world’s second-largest economy due to strong economic growth in the last few decades. The country saw double-digit growth a few years ago due to massive infrastructure investments and a rapidly growing export sector. According to Trading Economics, China’s economic growth averaged 9.61% between 1989 and 2018. However, the country’s economic growth has cooled off. China’s economic growth increased at an annualized pace of 6.7% in the second quarter. The US economy (SPY) grew 4.2% in the second quarter.

  • Would China Support Its Exporters?

    Would China Support Its Exporters?

    President Trump’s tariffs could cause US manufacturers to shuffle their supply chains. We could see some import substitution like we saw in the steel industry. However, we might also see import replacement from other emerging markets as US tariffs lead to higher landed costs for Chinese goods. Import replacement might not be as easy as it sounds. China is the dominant if not the sole supplier for many goods that it exports to the US. ...

    AK Steel: Could Things Turn Around in the Fourth Quarter?

    So far in this series, we’ve discussed Nucor (NUE), Steel Dynamics (STLD), and U.S. Steel Corporation’s (X) third-quarter earnings guidance. In this part, we’ll see how things look for AK Steel (AKS) in the third quarter and beyond. AK Steel has underperformed the broader steel space (XME) in 2018. The stock saw a selling spree after its first and second-quarter earnings release. In the second quarter, AK Steel missed the consensus estimates and its third-quarter guidance also spooked the markets. Let’s see what analysts project for the company’s third-quarter earnings.

    U.S. Steel Corporation and AK Steel Missed Section 232 Windfall

    Nucor (NUE), the largest US-based steel producer, posted its highest second-quarter earnings ever in the second quarter of 2018. Steel Dynamics (STLD) also posted record earnings in the second quarter. The Section 232 tariffs lifted US steel prices to multiyear highs. ArcelorMittal (MT) only gets a quarter of its revenues from NAFTA. ArcelorMittal also posted its highest earnings in seven years. However, U.S. Steel Corporation (X) and AK Steel’s (AKS) earnings have lagged other steel companies in 2018.

    As noted in the previous article, steel companies’ valuations look attractive based on forward EV-to-EBITDA (enterprise value to earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) multiples. However, these multiples are based on analysts’ earnings estimates, so it is prudent to read the multiples in conjunction with earnings estimates.

    Do Steel Companies’ Valuations Look Tempting?

    This month we’ve seen share buyback announcements by both Nucor (NUE) and Steel Dynamics (STLD). Share buybacks are a tool for management to return cash to shareholders. Generally, companies pursue share buybacks when they have surplus cash or they find their stocks undervalued. Steel companies’ cash flows have certainly improved amid higher steel prices. But do their valuations look tempting?

    Concerns about Chinese Steel Prices Could Be Overblown

    China (FXI) is the world’s largest steel producer and consumer. The country’s steel overcapacity and exports have been blamed for depressing global steel prices. However, Chinese steel exports have come down sharply from their 2015 highs. In August, China exported 5.8 million metric tons of steel products, a yearly fall of 9.8%. In the first eight months of 2018, Chinese steel exports have fallen 13.3% to 47.2 million metric tons.

    Do Section 232 Exemptions Pose a Big Risk to US Steel Stocks?

    President Trump has left the door open for exemptions from Section 232 tariffs. The exemptions would be on a product level as well as a country level. So far, countries like South Korea, Brazil, and Argentina have managed to see exemptions from Section 232 tariffs. The uncertainty about Section 232 exemptions is one reason why investors have shied away from steel stocks. In this article, we’ll see how Section 232 exemptions could impact US steel prices.
