    Nucor's stock falls after downbeat profit outlook, but sees prices bottoming

    Shares of Nucor Corp. sank 1.8% in premarket trade Friday, after the steel maker provided a first-quarter profit outlook that was below expectations. The company said it expects EPS for the quarter ending March 30 to rise to $1.45 to $1.50 from $1.10 a year ago, but fall from $2.07 in the sequential fourth quarter, but that is below the FactSet EPS consensus of $1.62. Nucor said the decline from the fourth quarter is due primarily to lower average selling prices and margins in its sheet mill group, and amid shipment delays to construction customers because of an "unusually wet winter season." Nucor said, however, that it believes sheet pricing "reached the low point" during the first quarter, and is "encouraged" by recent price increases. The stock has declined 11.1% over the past 12 months through Thursday, while the SPDR Materials Select Sector ETF has lost 6.8% and the S&P 500 has gained 2.2%.

    Mosaic's stock falls after plans to cut phosphate production by 300,000 tons

    Shares of Mosaic Co. fell 0.9% in premarket trade Thursday, after the fertilizer company said it will cut its phosphate production plans by 300,000 tons for the spring season, citing continued weather concerns and higher-than-normal carryover inventory levels. In the fourth quarter, the company reported North American finished phosphate production of 2.1 million tons. Mosaic said the reduced production will affect its facilities in Florida and Louisiana. "Mosaic believes the current margin structure does not reflect today's balanced market conditions," the company said in a statement. "Protecting margins at this seasonably slow time of the year is important for the company and its customers." The stock has shed 12.8% over the past three months, while the SPDR Materials Select Sector ETF has climbed 6.1% and the S&P 500 has gained 5.3%.

    Dow, S&P 500 open lower in stock market's busiest day for earnings

    The S&P 500 and the Dow edged lower to kick off Thursday trade, as the busiest day of this earnings season got under way. Wall Street also was processing a stunning turnabout by the Federal Reserve, which on Wednesday said it was unlikely to raise rates for the foreseeable future, citing "cross currents" in global markets. The Dow Jones Industrial Average traded 106 points, or 0.4%, lower at 24,904, weighed by declines in shares of DowDuPont Inc. following its quarterly results, the S&P 500 index traded less than 0.1% lower at 2,680, dragged down by declines in technology and materials . However, the technology-laden Nasdaq Composite Index traded higher, bolstered by upbeat quarterly results late-Wednesday from Facebook Inc. . Thursday will see some three dozen S&P 500 components report results today, marking the most frenzied day of earnings releases this quarter. On Wednesday, the market reacted positively to the Fed's updated policy statement, which hint that future rate increases by monetary-policy makers may be on hold for now. In other corporate news, Intel Corp. named Robert Swan its new CEO, while Tesla Inc. on Wednesday announced the departure of its CFO during its quarterly performance update.
