Steel, iron-ore prices plunged in China, WSJ reports

Steel and iron-ore prices in China plunged on Wednesday after exchanges in the country lowered the daily trading limit and raised margin requirements, according to The Wall Street Journal. The selloff by Chinese investors also hit base metals trading on the London Metal Exchange, the publication said. Companies levered to U.S. steel prices include AK Steel (AKS), Nucor (NUE), Steel Dynamics (STLD), U.S. Steel (X) and Cliffs Natural (CLF).Reference Link

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Lockheed Martin (LMT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Joseph DeNardi saying he is pleased with the company's comments regarding its 2018 free cash flow outlook, and he thinks that it could benefit from increased defense spending in the wake of the election results. 2. Philip Morris (PM) upgraded to Buy from Outperform at CLSA with analyst Michael Levy citing the recent pullback for his rating change and said he sees the company adding to its buyback. 3. Citi (C) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analysts led by Betsy Graseck saying the Republican sweep is positive for all financial stocks due to increased growth, higher rates, lower taxes, and less regulation. 4. U.S. Steel (X) and AK Steel (AKS) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley. 5. L Brands (LB), Kohl's (KSS), and Chico's(CHS) were upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi, while Chico's was also upgraded to Outperform from Peer Perform at Wolfe Research.

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.

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.
