    TimkenSteel's stock tumbles after J.P. Morgan turns bearish, slashes price target

    Shares of TimkenSteel Corp. tumbled 12% in premarket trading Monday, after J.P. Morgan analyst Stephanie Yee turned bearish on the steel maker, citing concerns that a "much lower" pricing environment will lead to 2020 annual contract pricing to be reset lower and worries about weaker demand. Yee lower the rating to underweight, after being at neutral for at least the past two years. Yee slashed the stock price target to $5, which is 32% below Friday's closing price of $7.36, from $9. "Additionally, an overall weaker demand environment, especially from the energy market, leads us to believe that [TimkenSteel's] energy shipments will be down significantly in both 2019 and 2020, which not only results in less fixed-cost absorption but also translates into a less favorable product mix given that energy components are the highest priced products within the company's portfolio," Yee wrote in a note to clients. The stock has lost 15.8% year to date through Friday, while the SPDR Materials Select Sector ETF has climbed 19.1% and the S&P 500 has rallied 23.4%.
