    was rising in premarket trading Wednesday after the steelmaker said it plans to idle two furnaces in the U.S. and another in Europe as demand weakens and prices fall. U.S. Steel also said it expects adjusted earnings in the fiscal second quarter of about 40 cents a share, below analysts' forecasts of 51 cents, and second-quarter adjusted EBITDA of about $250 million, excluding $15 million of costs related to a fire at its Clairton coke making facility in December. The company will take one furnace off line at its mill in Gary, Ind., and another at its mill in Ecorse, Mich.

    U.S. Steel to idle three blast furnaces, hurt by lower prices and soft demand

    United States Steel Corp on Tuesday said it would idle two blast furnaces in the United States and a third in Europe, as lower steel prices and softening demand led the steel producer to forecast current-quarter earnings below the Wall Street estimates. Steel producers in the United States have brought old capacity online after President Donald Trump's imposed tariffs on imported steel from countries including China, resulting in a surplus supply of steel at a time when manufacturing demand has weakened, suppressing prices. U.S. Steel said it will also idle one of its blast furnaces in Europe where increasing levels of imports and higher raw material costs are hurting the company's operations.

    U.S. Steel, Darling of Trump's Tariffs, Plans to Idle Plants

    (Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a coming daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. What a difference a year or so makes.Starting in 2018, U.S. President Donald Trump has been touting the restorative value of the tariffs his administration imposed on imports that March. “Steel is coming back fast!” he said in a tweet a year ago. In another comment, he said, “These industries, it’s incredible what’s going on. U.S. Steel is building many plants and expanding many plants.”But fissures have appeared in those declarations. And on Tuesday U.S. Steel Corp., one of the beneficiaries of the president’s metal tariffs, announced that it will be idling two blast furnaces in the U.S., and one in Europe, until “market conditions improve.”The decision comes amid falling steel prices in the U.S. due to worries of a glut from new capacity planned for the coming years. Major U.S. producers that had announced expansions or restarts include Nucor Corp., Steel Dynamics Inc., Commercial Metals Co., as well as U.S. Steel.“In the United States, we began a planned maintenance outage on the Great Lakes B2 blast furnace last week,” the Pittsburgh-based company said Tuesday. “Based on current market conditions, we expect the B2 blast furnace to remain idled after the completion of the planned outage. In addition, we expect to temporarily idle a south blast furnace at our Gary Works facility.”To be sure, the tariffs did provide an adrenaline rush of energy to the industry. Nucor, the country’s largest steelmaker, and U.S. Steel were among companies that saw significant profit gains in 2018. But on the whole, investors have reason to feel short-changed. The S&P Supercomposite Steel Index has dropped 29 percent in the past year, with U.S. Steel’s 60% drop among the worst of the gauge’s 13 companies.To contact the reporters on this story: Joe Deaux in New York at jdeaux@bloomberg.net;Matt Townsend in New York at mtownsend9@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Luzi Ann Javier at ljavier@bloomberg.net, Steven Frank, Joe RichterFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    U.S. Steel guides for lower Q2 profit, idles furnaces

    Natural disasters and softer steel prices are taking a toll at U.S. Steel Corp. , which on Tuesday forecast lower-than-expected second-quarter profit and said it was idling three furnaces. U.S. Steel said it expects second-quarter adjusted earnings of about 40 cents a share. Analysts polled by FactSet expect adjusted earnings of 51 cents a share. The company said its flat-rolled business is being hit by falling steel prices and softening end-market demand. In addition, second-quarter shipments are lower than it expected due to flooding in the southern U.S. limiting the availability of barges and hampering product shipment in the past few weeks. The company also cited "market headwinds" for its business in Europe. U.S. Steel said it will idle two blast furnaces in the U.S. and one in Europe to adjust to the market conditions. "We believe that the investments being made to improve costs and expand product capabilities will create a more differentiated and agile company, combining our competitive advantages with state-of-the-art sustainable steel technology to create long-term value for our stockholders, customers and employees," U.S. Steel said in a statement. Shares rose 0.2% in the extended session after ending the regular session up 4.4%.

    In its Section 232 steel probe, the Commerce Department pointed to the high steel import to export ratio. It emphasized the subsidized steel in other countries that makes US steel exports to those countries uncompetitive. Now, while US steel imports have fallen after the Section 232 tariffs, we’ve seen a steeper fall in US steel exports.

Now, 15 months into the tariffs, the Commerce Department seems to have achieved its objective, as the US steel industry has operated above the 80% utilization rate almost consistently over the last year.

    One of the largest U.S. producers of aerosol cans, Colorado-based Ball Metalpack, has laid off 91 of its 500 U.S. workers since President Donald Trump imposed a 25% tariff on imported steel that abruptly hiked the firm's raw materials costs. At a chief competitor, DS Containers, the story is different. The U.S. Commerce Department granted DS Containers an exemption from the import tax because it uses a raw material, plastic-laminated steel, that isn't produced by U.S. steelmakers.
