    AK Steel's stock slumps after Morgan Stanley cuts rating, slashes price target

    Shares of AK Steel Holding Corp. dropped 3.9% in afternoon trade Monday, after Morgan Stanley downgraded the steel maker, citing concerns over pricing. Analyst Piyush Sood cut his rating to equal weight from overweight, and slashed his price target to $3 from $5. Previously, Sood said he was expecting higher annual auto contract pricing resets, but with auto sales peaking and increased steel sheet supply, original equipment manufacturers have "likely gained the upper hand" in negotiations. Separately, Sood upgraded U.S. Steel Corp. to equal weight from underweight, citing expected limited downside as the stock price has "sufficiently priced in" pricing concerns. The stock slipped 0.4% in afternoon trade, while the VanEck Vectors Steel ETF fell 2.8%. Earlier Monday, President Trump tweeted that tariffs on steel imports "have totally revived our steel industry." The steel ETF has tumbled 26% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 has lost 8.2%.

    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.
