U.S. Steel (X) has a forward EV-to-EBITDA of 2.9x its 2019 consensus EBITDA and 3.4x its 2020 consensus EBITDA.

    CLF: Why Jim Cramer Is Worried about This ‘Best-in-Show’ Stock

    CLF: Why Jim Cramer Is Worried about This 'Best-in-Show' Stock ## Jim Cramer: CLF is ‘Best-in-Show’ company Yesterday, Jim Cramer, the Mad Money host, answered caller’s questions regarding Cleveland-Cliffs (CLF) stock. He said, “The company’s best in show, but I’ve got to tell you, the stock is not going to be a good stock if the Fed tightens again. I don’t think they’re going to in the near future, but I’ve got to tell you, it makes me nervous.” ## Fed’s rate hike chances bleak On January 4, Fed Chair Jerome Powell said that the Fed could be more patient with its policy stance if needed. Yesterday, he again stressed that the Fed could be patient while approving further hikes, as it continues to monitor the gauges of the US economy (SPY). These two back-to-back appearances from the Fed chair with dovish statements have assured markets that the Fed will not take any surprise action on rate hikes. The markets have been quite relieved with this stance from the Fed as well as from the recently concluded US-China trade talks. ## Cleveland-Cliffs’ fundamentals While Cleveland-Cliffs stock rose by 6.7% in 2018, it plunged 39% in the last quarter alone. This, however, had more to do with the overall risk-off sentiment and the slowdown concerns of China rather than anything related to CLF itself. As compared to CLF’s positive price action, its US peers (DIA) (IVV), AK Steel (AKS), U.S. Steel (X), ArcelorMittal (MT), Steel Dynamics (STLD), and Nucor (NUE) reported returns of -60%, -48%, -36%, -30%, and -18%, respectively, for 2018. Cleveland-Cliffs’ fundamentals have been improving since its new management took over in 2014. Its non-core assets have sold off with the seaborne operations being the last, which took a lot of volatility out of the stock. Its debt concerns have been laid to rest. Moreover, the company is solidly marching on its growth path with the ongoing construction of an HBI (hot briquetted iron) plant. As we argued in Why Now Might Be a Good Time to Look Again at Cleveland-Cliffs, CLF is attractively valued based on its multiple relative to its peers and its historical valuation. See Revisiting the Case: How Does Cleveland-Cliffs Look Now? for an in-depth analysis of CLF’s fundamentals and valuations.

  • Would Trump Sacrifice Steel Tariffs for Broader Trade Deals?
    Market Realist13 days ago

    Would Trump Sacrifice Steel Tariffs for Broader Trade Deals?

    Steel Companies’ 2019 Outlook: Can the Winning Streak Continue? (Continued from Prior Part) ## Steel tariffs Last year, President Trump imposed a 25% tariff on US steel imports that helped lift US steel prices to multiyear highs. The Trump administration has already granted Section 232 exemptions to some countries including Brazil and South Korea. The United States renegotiated its trade deal with South Korea last year. ## Negotiation tactic The Trump administration has indicated that Section 232 tariffs have helped bring other countries to the negotiating table. Section 232 exemptions could be extended to other countries also, as the Trump administration moves forward on new trade deals. While the Section 232 exemptions could be negative for US steel companies like U.S. Steel (X), AK Steel (AKS), and Nucor (NUE), we should remember that Trump has stood firm on his support to the US steel industry (SPY). ## Quotas While South Korea has been granted a long-term exemption from the Section 232 tariffs, the country agreed to a quota to get the exemption. In the case of Canada and Mexico, while the countries have agreed to the new USMCA, they are still covered under Section 232 tariffs. The Trump administration has been pushing for quotas below the current level of imports. As some countries like Canada haven’t agreed to quotas, they haven’t been granted Section 232 exemptions even after a new trade deal. This year, we could see the Trump administration move forward on some new trade deals. We could see quotas be imposed for Section 232 exemptions. US steel companies wouldn’t mind the exemptions much if the quotas are reasonably below the current import levels. China’s slowdown could be another key driver for US steel and iron ore companies this year. We’ll discuss this in detail in the next article.

  • Are Steel Oversupply Concerns Unfounded?
    Market Realist13 days ago

    Are Steel Oversupply Concerns Unfounded?

    Steel Companies’ 2019 Outlook: Can the Winning Streak Continue? (Continued from Prior Part) ## Steel oversupply Some observers have pointed out that US steel markets could witness oversupply that could depress prices. To be sure, we saw a plant restart by U.S. Steel (X) last year. Nucor (NUE) and Steel Dynamics (STLD) have announced a slew of new projects that would add to US steel production capacity. But are US steel markets staring at an oversupply situation? Let’s discuss this in perspective. ## Section 232 tariffs To be sure, US steel production has been on an uptrend after President Trump imposed Section 232 tariffs in March. Last year, US steel production rose 6.2% year-over-year. In absolute terms, US steel production rose ~5.5 million tons. The calculations are based on the American Iron and Steel Institute’s weekly steel production data until December 29. Meanwhile, while US steel production has risen, it has been accompanied by falling imports. According to the Census Bureau’s final data, US steel imports fell by 3.2 million tons in the first nine months of 2018 as compared to the corresponding period in 2017. Preliminary data showed a small rise in October imports. Imports likely fell in November and December as well. However, the November steel imports data is yet to be published due to the government shutdown. Nonetheless, as of now, higher steel production doesn’t seem to be a problem for US steel markets (AKS), as it’s leading to import substitution. However, if the Section 232 tariff is watered down, we could see an increase in imports. We’ll discuss this in detail in the next article.

    What Should US Steel Investors Watch Out for in 2019?

    Steel Companies’ 2019 Outlook: Can the Winning Streak Continue? (Continued from Prior Part) ## US steel investors 2019 has started on a positive note for US steel stocks like U.S. Steel (X), Nucor (NUE), and AK Steel (AKS). In this article, we’ll see what US steel investors should watch out for this year after a strong start to the year. ## Domestic factors The demand-supply equation could be a key driver of US steel prices (MT). Over the last couple of months, US steel demand indicators, particularly from the housing and automotive sectors, have shown signs of moderating growth. On the supply side, US steel production has been on an uptrend on domestic capacity restarts. So far, incremental supply hasn’t negatively impacted the supply situation, as it has been accompanied by a fall in imports. However, it will be crucial to see how the imports situation unfolds this year. ## China Steel investors (CLF) are also closely watching China’s slowdown. Chinese steel prices came under pressure last year amid weak demand from the real estate and automotive sectors. The steps taken by the Chinese government to arrest the growth slowdown could impact Chinese as well as US steel prices. This year, we could see the Trump administration move forward on new trade deals. This could also mean Section 232 exemptions for more countries. From steel companies’ perspective, it would be crucial that the exemptions are accompanied with a quota. Finally, Trump’s policies on the proposed infrastructure investments could be a key driver for steel companies this year. We’ll discuss these drivers in detail in the coming articles.
