    Trump's steel tariffs create big profits but few new jobs

    Nucor Corp, America’s largest steelmaker, planned a new plant in Sedalia, Missouri, long before U.S. President Donald Trump imposed tariffs to protect the industry – and it does not need them to make money. Although the firm helped lead the lobbying push for tariffs on imports, executives say they invested in Sedalia and two other sites to capitalise on an already profitable strategy that doesn't depend on government help. While Trump has played up the narrative of downtrodden steel workers losing jobs to unscrupulous foreign competitors, most of the benefit from his 25 percent tariffs are flowing to the already strong bottom lines of Nucor and other modernized and globally competitive U.S. steel firms, according to interviews with industry executives, experts and a Reuters review of company earnings.

    Election Over, Market Still Undecided

    The big post-election rally on Wednesday has petered out a bit as the week draws to a close.  We know the nation is politically divided, and now the market is showing us its split personality as well.  We warned investors on Wednesday that this could happen since the election was unlikely to immediately solve the issues of rates, tariffs, President’s Trump’s legal woes, or the slowdown in earnings growth next year.  As a result, the major indices are trying to give back their Wednesday gains. ...
