PARIS (Reuters) - ArcelorMittal has offered steel for the restoration of Notre-Dame de Paris after a fire gutted the gothic cathedral's roof and destroyed its iconic spire, the steelmaker said on Thursday. ...
GFG Alliance, a privately held conglomerate, said on Thursday it plans to integrate most of the mining and engineering businesses under its Liberty House unit into a single global steel business with assets across the UK, Europe and Australia. London-headquartered GFG, which is looking at possible stock market flotations for part of its business, said in a statement the consolidated business would include its UK steel and engineering assets, a steel plant and mines in Australia, and seven European plants it acquired from ArcelorMittal.
17 April 2019, 17:00 CET – ArcelorMittal (‘the Company’) today announces that it has received European Commission (‘EC’) approval for the sale of several steelmaking assets to.
The European Commission has approved the sale by ArcelorMittal, the world's largest steel producer, of plants in several European countries to Liberty House to satisfy regulatory requirements for its acquisition of Italian steelmaker Ilva. "In May 2018, the Commission approved the acquisition of Ilva by ArcelorMittal, subject to conditions," the EU executive said in a statement.
Liberty House, the company run by metals magnate Sanjeev Gupta, has won EU approval to buy a number of steelworks from ArcelorMittal. The purchase includes two large plants with blast furnaces in Romania and the Czech Republic, as well as finishing sites in Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg and North Macedonia. It will turn Liberty House into a major player in the continent’s steel industry and follows a rapid string of acquisitions that have transformed what was once a commodities trader into a manufacturing powerhouse.
Few sectors are as economically sensitive as the steel industry, and even top steel producers are not immune. Steel production is now just an incidental player on a world stage that is dominated by China, the largest producer and importer of the metal. Warning! GuruFocus has detected 1 Warning Sign with MT.
Yesterday US Steel (NYSE:X) stock fell 3.25% on an analyst downgrade. Bank of America Merryl Lynch moved the stock from a BUY to SELL and lowered the price target 40% from $31 to $18 per share. This is a massive change and warrants some caution on X stock.Source: Shutterstocks The analyst, Timna Tanners, speculates that steel prices will lack the catalyst needed to boost them, so X will burn more a lot of cash thereby putting pressure on the stock price. So the stock is suffering because of an economic war between mills. Those are keeping prices low to gain a bigger share of the market. Other competitor stocks also suffered like Nucor (NYSE:NUE) and Steel Dynamics (NYSE:STLD) but X chart looks ugliest.So is it time to catch this falling knife? Yes, but with a caveat.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 8 Risky Stocks to Watch as Earnings Season Kicks Off Fundamentally speaking, X stock is cheap as it sells at a trailing 2.6 P/E ratio. This is very cheap -- provided they can keep the denominator steady. What Should You Do With X Stock?So if I own the shares, it's probably too late to sell now. As far as averaging down, I'd wait out a few more ticks to see the follow through price action from the downgrade. This also depends heavily on my base price for my shares. I'd avoid adding to a position too close in time or price to my last entry.If I am looking to initiate a new position in US Steel stock, doing so now is not a clear decision. This requires a lot of faith but it is doable. We have to remember here that the downgrade offers one person's opinion on the X situation so it's not absolute fact.It doesn't help matters that coming into the downgrade X already had a hideous chart. It was already trailing the S&P 500 by 20 points year-to-date; it's down almost 10%. For the past 12 months, X is down 54% so it's been sliding for a long time. And it's been under performing its peers too.Which begs the question on what to do with X today. Buying the stock now and this cheap seems like an easy decision after all it already sells at such a low P/E. But the slide in the stock is very long-term in nature. This means that it's not going to snap out of this downtrend quickly.In this case I'd rather wait out a bit more even if it means I miss out on some profits. I'd rather be late entering a stock than too early and start a position in the hole.Technically, X stock has been falling for so long that I need to use the weekly charts to get some input to help with the decision today. This means that the technical hints are slower in nature thereby supporting my decision to act today.Yesterday's fall places U.S. Steel stock in danger of triggering a massive bearish Head-and-Shoulders pattern. In fact, technically one could argue that it's already below the neckline and that puts it in danger from targeting the single-digit zone. While this is not a forecast, it is a scenario that could unfold and bulls need to know it. The Bottom Line on X StockIn summary, I don't usually panic out of a stock based on one person's opinion. But in this case, I would wait bit to get more clues. The next few days will be crucial for X stock and they will provide valuable clues for investors. * 7 Marijuana Companies: Which Pot Stocks Should You Buy? Most other analysts that cover X are on HOLD but there are a few still favorable of it. So it's vulnerable from more surprise downgrade from those analysts that still have it as a BUY.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com.

The Supreme Court ruled that Essar Steel India Ltd.’s current status has to be maintained, pending a review by a bankruptcy tribunal hearing appeals related to the sale. Friday’s ruling was in response to petitions by banks, including Standard Chartered Plc, which are fighting over how money that’ll be received from the company’s sale should be distributed. A lower court had last month approved Arcelor and its partner Nippon Steel Corp.’s offer to pay $6 billion upfront to lenders and invest another $1.1 billion in the Indian steel company.
The Supreme Court on Friday ordered ArcelorMittal SA to stop a payment to lenders to buy Essar Steel, a lawyer involved in the case said, delaying billionaire Lakshmi Mittal's entry into the country's fast-growing steel market. India's bankruptcy court had approved ArcelorMittal's $6 billion bid for debt-ridden Essar on March 8, potentially ending months of court battles and opening the sector to outsiders. On Friday, the Supreme Court halted ArcelorMittal's payment while a bankruptcy appeals court - the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal - rules on various appeals in the case.
