Overweight
U.S. Steel upgraded to Overweight on infrastructure spending at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Evan Kurtz upgraded U.S. Steel to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised its price target to $46 from $19. The analyst believes the Trump victory has led to the first "credible long-term investment case" for steel equities for the first time in a decade and expects Trump's proposals for infrastructure spending and trade protection to add to demand and curb import supply. Kurtz expects U.S. Steel to benefit from increased flat-rolled steel demand, ongoing cost savings, and leverage to an infrastructure upcycle.

Deutsche upgrades four Metals & Mining names after Trump win
Deutsche Bank analyst Jorge Beristain believes Metals & Mining companies with exposure to precious metals and steel and aluminum will benefit from trade protectionism under President-elect Donald Trump. The analyst upgraded to Buy from Hold Franco-Nevada (FNV), Reliance Steel (RS), Ryerson (RYI) and U.S. Steel (X). Higher import duties and/or regulations for aluminum and steel products are likely, which should "provide a tailwind" for domestic steel and aluminum prices, Beristain tells investors in a research note. The analyst has a $74 price target for Franco-Nevada, a $78 target for Reliance, a $14 target for Ryerson and a $24 target for U.S. Steel.
