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.

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.

Memory cycle may be plateauing, but not peaking, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst John Pitzer said Micron's significant "beat and raises" may be plateauing into the second half of the year, but not peaking, given that he sees the current memory cycle as one that will be "stronger-for-longer." To support that view, Pitzer points to increasing costs of capacity, new applications supporting diversification and demand and the fact that more time would be needed for a cycle-ending supply response. He raised his estimates for Micron and keeps an Outperform rating and $40 price target on the shares.
