Steel stocks upgraded on positive price outlook at Longbow

As noted earlier, Longbow upgraded steelmakers Nucor (NUE), Steel Dynamics (STLD), U.S. Steel (X) and AK Steel (AKS) to Buy from Hold. After speaking with contacts in the sector, analyst Chris Olin says they expect steel HRC prices to rise $50-$60 per ton, driven by "a (recent) modest uptick in downstream steel orders, inventory adjustments and a large pullback in the number of steel import offers." In the wake of his checks, Olin now sees the chances of near-term government support of the U.S. steel sector in the form of protection from imports at 70%-80%, up from 50% last month. The analyst reports that "some buyers" expect price to rise to $700-$750 per ton following the government action, up from $590-$600 currently. Nucor target $66, Steel Dynamics target $40, U.S. Steel target $30, AK Steel target $10.

Nucor upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Curt Woodworth upgraded Nucor to Outperform and raised his price target for the shares to $68 from $56. The analyst also upgraded his U.S. Steel sector rating to Overweight from Market Weight. He expects prices to recover by late Q3 amid "strong" demand trends, low inventories, and trade dynamics via Section 232 "structurally limiting import flows despite attractive arb spreads." Woodworth notes that U.S. Steel equities have underperformed the market significantly since peaking in February.

U.S. Steel is '2019 story,' says Axiom
After meeting with U.S. Steel's new CEO, Dave Burritt, Axiom analyst Gordon Johnson believes that the company is viewing the next 18-24 months as "a restructuring period" that will feature higher spending on "asset revitalization." The analyst quotes Burritt as saying that he expects Congress to pass a "large bi- partisan infrastructure bill in mid-'18, bearing fruit in '19." Johnson now sees U.S. Steel as a "2019 story," and he warns that the company is likely to miss its $1B 2017 EBITDA guidance due to higher spending on asset revitalization. Johnson keeps a Sell rating on the stock.
