JPMorgan raises targets for steel stocks on expected higher U.S. steel prices

JPMorgan analyst Michael Gambardella noted that ArcelorMittal (MT) raised its hot-rolled sheet pricing by $40 per ton, to $600 per ton, last night and he continues to think that supply cuts in the U.S. from both capacity curtailments and lower imports should support higher U.S. steel prices. The Trump administration's impact on trade could be "much quicker and more meaningful" than its infrastructure plans, said Gambardella, who raised his price targets on several stocks in the U.S. steel industry. He increased his target on AK Steel (AKS) to $11 from $8.50, on Nucor (NUE) to $70 from $59, on Steel Dynamics (STLD) to $41 from $31, on U.S. Steel (X) to $37 from $29 and on Cliffs Natural (CLF) to $10 from $7, while keeping Overweight ratings on all five stocks.

AK Steel upgraded on upside to infrastructure cycle at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Evan Kurtz upgraded AK Steel to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised its price target to $11 from $5. 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 AK Steel to benefit from increased flat-rolled steel demand, ongoing cost savings, and leverage to an infrastructure upcycle.

Buy
Steel Dynamics upgraded to Buy on spot sheet leverage at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill upgraded Steel Dynamics (STLD) to Buy from Neutral and raised its price target to $30 from $28. Analyst Timna Tanners' checks indicate US scrap steel prices are likely to rise $30-$40/ton in November due to increased global demand and higher metallurgical coal prices, which could be a catalyst for higher domestic steel prices. The analyst said Steel Dynamics is more exposure to sheet price hikes than peers and expects its strong cash flows and diversified mix to drive its valuation multiple toward Nucor's (NUE).

JPMorgan analyst Michael Gambardella raised his price target for Cliffs Natural Resources to $10.50 and keeps an Overweight rating on the name. The recent bankruptcy of Essar Steel Minnesota has further solidified Cliffs' "defensible business model," Gambardella tells investors in a research note. The short interest in the name, at 43% of outstanding float, is "extremely high despite the wave of positive developments," the analyst contends. He sees a likely positive catalyst from near-term earnings beats amid higher steel pricing.
