    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).
