US steel prices stagnating from here, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analysts led by Timna Tanners believes hot rolled coil , or HRC, steel prices will peak at $600/ton in Q3. The firm's contacts indicate import offers have been increasingly attractive and expect rising imports to hurt prices in Q4. BofA/Merrill raised 2016 average U.S. benchmark HRC to $530/ton from $485/ton but sees pressures ahead from scrap prices flat-to-down from a Q2 peak, cheaper imports, Big River starting and CSN restarting capacity, and Q4 seasonality. The firm upgraded U.S. Steel (X) to Neutral based on higher sheet price forecasts and reduced liquidity risks.

Reliance Steel upgraded to Neutral on steadier earnings at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill upgraded Reliance Steel to Neutral from Underperform and raised its price target to $84 from $77. Analyst Timna Tanners is switching to a more defensive position given the retracement in shares. The analyst said Relieance's earning have been steadier given its diversified product mix and reduced exposure to the pricing environment in carbon sheet, which could drop by $100/ton by year end.

BofA/Merrill cautious on US steel prices correcting into 2H 2016
BofA/Merrill analyst Timma Tanners is cautious on U.S. steel prices correcting into 2H 2016 and expects foreign tons to target the U.S. to shrink the U.S. premium. The analyst lowered Q4 HRC spot price to $520/st from $570/st and trimmed 2H 2016 volume assumptions due to inventory destocking and shorter lead times. As a result, Tanners lowered price target on U.S. Steel (X) to $16 from $21 , Reliance Steel (RS) to $78 from $84, Nucor (NUE) to $50 from $55, Steel Dynamics (STLD) to $27 from $28, and Commercial Metals (CMC) to $15 from $16.
