  • The Trump Tariff Twist That Has Cost U.S. Steel $5.6 Billion

    The Trump Tariff Twist That Has Cost U.S. Steel $5.6 Billion

    (Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. President Donald Trump’s tariffs on foreign steel have sped the decline of some of the U.S. mills he vowed to help.Exuberance over the levies dramatically boosted U.S. output just as the global economy was cooling, undercutting demand. That dropped prices, creating a stark divide between companies like Nucor Corp., which use cheaper-to-run electric-arc furnaces to recycle scrap into steel products, and those including U.S. Steel Corp. with more costly legacy blast furnaces.Since Trump announced the tariffs 16 months ago, U.S. Steel has lost almost 70% of its market value, or $5.6 billion, and idled two American furnaces in mid-June that couldn’t be run profitably at the lowest prices since 2016. Meanwhile, Nucor, down around 20%, has touted $2.5 billion in expansion projects.The president’s actions likely “sped up” up an unavoidable “evolution,” said Nucor Chief Executive Officer John Ferriola in an interview last month. “Are some companies going to suffer? Absolutely. We’ll we see some capacity go away, I’m sure of it."Last July, Trump stood on a makeshift stage at a U.S. Steel mill in Granite City, Illinois, and beamed as workers cheered the tariffs. At that point, the company had already restarted one of two blast furnaces at Granite City, and vowed the second would soon be brought online.“Workers are back on the job, and we’re once again pouring new American steel into the spine of our country,” Trump said during the hour-long program. “U.S. Steel is back.”Since then, though, there’s been a somewhat different outcome.With the stronger steelmakers aggressively boosting capacity to grab market share, a dip in demand has left older, more costly blast furnaces at U.S. Steel and AK Steel Holding Corp. struggling to compete, even with foreign steel nudged out of the equation.“Be careful what you wish for,” said Timna Tanners, an analyst at Bank of America who has dubbed the industry’s push to add capacity without enough demand “Steelmageddon.” She called it “ironic” that the tariffs are “punishing some steel companies.”A spokeswoman at U.S. Steel declined to comment while AK Steel said its products have little overlap with EAFs, and that the additional capacity will further pressure imports.As expected, the tariffs reduced steel imports, creating more demand in 2018 and boosting profits. With that cash in hand, added money from Trump’s corporate tax cut and confidence that protectionism is here to stay, domestic producers began adding more capacity than they would have otherwise.The problem: This year, with the global economy cooling, demand -- and prices -- have fallen. That’s given an added incentive to EAF companies with superior profit margins and balance sheets to aggressively grab a bigger share of the market.“Not all plants are the same,” said Mark Millett, CEO of Steel Dynamics Inc., who in November announced a new $1.8 billion EAF mill to be built in the U.S. southwest. “Not all projects are the same.”Suppliers to blast furnaces are sounding the alarm. In laying out his vision for iron-ore miner Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. at a recent conference, CEO Lourenco Goncalves painted a bleak future for what makes up the overwhelming majority of his current customers.That’s why Cliffs is investing $830 million in a Toledo, Ohio-based plant that will produce hot briquetted iron for electronic-arc furnaces run by firms such as Nucor, Goncalves said. They invested in the plant because “we were able to see the future of steelmaking in the United States,” Goncalves said in New York last month.Many “blast furnaces will shut down,” he added.U.S. Steel is trying to show investors it can move past its legacy blast furnaces. In February, it announced the restart of construction on an EAF facility in Alabama. And in May, the company said it would spend $1 billion upgrading facilities in Pennsylvania to produce more high-strength steel for the automotive industry.“Less efficient capacity should go away, but there is no guarantee that it permanently goes away,” Bank of America’s Tanners said. “It probably doesn’t go down without a fight.”(Updates market value decline in headline, third paragraph.)\--With assistance from Shawn Donnan.To contact the reporters on this story: Matt Townsend in New York at mtownsend9@bloomberg.net;Joe Deaux in New York at jdeaux@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Luzi Ann Javier at ljavier@bloomberg.net, Reg Gale, Joe RichterFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

  • Now May be the Right Time to Go Long on Steel

    Now May be the Right Time to Go Long on Steel

    The steel sector in the United State has experienced setbacks lately. The classic American steel producer, United States Steel (X, NYSE), reported on June 19 that it will close two Midwestern blast furnaces. A few days earlier, its American counterparts, Nucor (NUE, NYSE) and Steel Dynamics (STLD, NASDAQ), released mediocre Q2 earnings forecasts, signifcantly lower than analysts’ expectations. It should be noted that projections for 2019 were quite positive for the U.S. steel industry. The mining disaster in Brazil in January significantly lowered the supply of iron ore in world markets and was expected to generate a major rise in the price of steel. In addition, growing American dependence of steel imports should have helped the commodity as well. However, new developments in the international trade arena acted against expectations. The reduction or elimination of U.S. tariffs against Canadian and Mexican steel in May drove prices downwards. Decreasing automotive production and increased supply from scrap producers have also taken their toll on prices.In light of all of that, one would obviously expect steel stocks to drop. In reality, the opposite happened. Last Wednesday (June 19), United State Steel surged by 6%. The day before, on Tuesday, it closed 1% higher despite issuing Q2 EPS forecast of $0.40 – 23% lower than Wall Street’s forecast of $0.52. As to other steel producers, on Wednesday, Steel Dynamics skyrocketed closed morning trade 11.2% higher. Nucor managed to climb by 4.3%. On June 11, Curt Woodworth from Credit Suisse has given Nucor stock a buy rating and a price target of $58 with an upside potential of 6.91%. The current stock price stands at $54.25. All in all, the rally in steel stocks helped the Dow Jones gain 1.6%.View NUE Price Target & Analyst Ratings DetailThe bullishness in the steel market was also felt outside the United States. India’s Tata Steel (TATASTEEL, NSE), for example, climbed 5%, abruptly ending a 4-day losing streak. What Accounts for this Rally in the Steel Stock Market? From a yearly perspective, in 2019 steel stocks as a whole sank by 40% compared to 2018 mainly due to investors’ concerns that the growing trade war between the United States and China would cause global economic slowdown and would, consequently, lower demand for steel. Investors are now convinced that prices have reached a nadir from which they will only go up. Put it another way, the sector appears to be undervalued, enough to make it a profitable investment once again.
