    Key Highlights from Cleveland-Cliffs’s 1Q18 Results

    Cleveland-Cliffs (CLF) reported first-quarter revenues of $239 million, a decline of 48% year-over-year (or YoY). This decline was largely expected due to the change in the sales recognition method by the company as well as lower carryover tons from the previous quarter. The analysts were, however, expecting lower revenues of just $181.4 million. Higher-than-expected realized prices and the earlier-than-expected start to the shipping season led to the better-than-expected top-line expectations.

    Trump Can’t Save Steel, Dump the Stocks: UBS

    According to analysts at UBS, President Donald Trump can do very little to delay a 17% decline in U.S. steel prices through the end of 2019, and that spells bad news for shares of industry leaders such as United States Steel Corp. ( X) and AK Steel Holding Corp. ( AKS). "We closely track China as a primary leading indicator of U.S. steel prices (by one month), and conclude that risk to prices and the domestic spread is to the downside," stated Bokkenheuser.

    US Steel Production Gains Traction amid Import Substitution

    With the Section 232 tariffs, the US Commerce Department intends to improve the domestic steel industry’s capacity utilization rate. The US steel industry has operated at a capacity use ratio below 80% since November 2014. Low capacity use could be due to higher imports.
