    Steel ETF Could Shake Its Laggard Ways

    The VanEck Vectors Steel ETF (SLX) is off 7.5% over the past month as steel and iron stocks have struggled amid tariffs and trade war speculation. After the March tariff on steel imports, the Trump administration expanded them on June 1 by removing temporary country exemptions for members of the European Union, Canada and Mexico.  However, some analysts believe iron and steel equities are poised to bounce back. “First it was fear of tariffs and a trade war that hurt the metals and mining sector, and then Turkey's troubles burst onto the world stage, weighing on emerging markets.  However, these worries have created a buying opportunity, argues Credit Suisse's Curt Woodworth,” reports Teresa Rivas for Barron's.

    Cleveland-Cliffs (CLF) reported first-quarter revenues of $239 million, a decline of 48% year-over-year (or YoY).
