Follow-up: Warrior Met Coal downgraded to Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley downgraded Warrior Met Coal to Equal Weight from Overweight and cut its price target to $17 from $27. Analyst Evan Kurtz has increased concerns about met coal following a recent trip to China saying he sees risks from higher international met coal supply, a low probability of reduced Chinese supply, and peak steel demand in China during 2017-18. Morgan Stanley's commodity team expects benchmark pricing to fall to 100/ton from the current $140/ton by 2019 and for a surplus to form after 2017 as China increases domestic supply and steel production rates slow.

He keeps an Overweight rating on Cliffs.
