Making the Bullish Case for Cleveland-Cliffs Stock
Steel stocks have pulled back from their mid-February highs on concerns the Trump administration's agenda could be stalled
Cliffs used to be a $100/share company. We are at the level we are now for a variety of reasons including lower ore prices, a former CEO that put the company under water, to much foreign steel, and a former president that seemed to be against mining. Most of these factors are gone. A large amount of the debt is being paid off, a president who is for American mining jobs and American steel, and cliffs investing in the future (i.e. New mustang plant and soon to come HBI plant in Toledo). These are all great factors for cliffs to return to where it used to be. While this may take time, I think we are heading in the right direction.
IRON ORE PRICES: Benchmark index closes in on $78 per tonne cfr China | Metal Bulletin.com

another day crossing$7.50
More good news out of China, they are going to CURTAIL their steel and aluminum capacity. This is why US steel is spiking and if you talk to any of the steel processing guys, you will find out that scrap steel jumped big time and they all received warnings for spikes in steel cost coming down the road. They are all pre-buying now to make money on the increase. It is amazing that no bad news has been issued on this stock and it sits around $7.50 all the time.
Clf is trading at a price/ebitda of 3.3. With the much improved balance sheet and io back in the mid 70s, clf should be trading at a multiple of at least 5. 5x ebitda would be a share price of $10.83
ArcelorMittal SA, a $41B company, with its subsidiaries owns and operates steel manufacturing and mining facilities in:
a-Europe b-North and South America c-Asia d-Africa
MT operates through five segments, which include NAFTA; Europe; Brazil; Africa and Commonwealth of Independent States (ACIS), and Mining.
In their 8/16/17 Newswire addressed the situation in South Africa’s “negative Impact” to their bottom line seems to imply a shift with possibly adding/replacing more mature and profitable companies to their portfolio. IMHO AKS and CLF seem to be good candidates.
It is a fact AKS and CLF have turned the corner with improved earning potential, even without Secrion232 (which may be brought to the front again).
Someone is buying on these dips and it is an interesting thought, just another reason for me to be long in in all three.. Happy investing!
