Nucor says improved earnings due to 'much stronger market conditions'

"As expected, earnings in the second quarter of 2018 improved significantly compared to the first quarter of 2018. The primary driver of the improved performance was our steel mills segment, which experienced higher average selling prices and increased profitability across all steel mill product groups, with the strongest profitability increase at our sheet mills. Our steel products and raw materials segments also experienced increased profitability in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the first quarter of 2018. These improved earnings are the result of much stronger market conditions that we believe have been positively impacted by deregulation, tax reform and higher, stable oil prices."

Nucor expected to have a positive mid-quarter update, says Longbow
Longbow analyst Chris Olin is looking for a positive mid-quarter update from Nucor with positive commentary about nonresidential construction demand, wider mini-mill spreads, steady downstream margins, and investment contributions to push 2H 2018 expectations higher. Olin's expects Q2 earnings of $1.68, in-line with consensus, and sees increasing construction spending driving 2-3 years of additional long product volume growth. The analyst expects consensus estimates to move much higher, reflecting recent transaction volumes for bar, beam, and plate products and visible volume strength across all of the carbon steel mills. Olin rates Nucor a Buy with a $90 price target.

Nucor and Steel Dynamics should ramp up capital returns, says Citi
Nucor (NUE) and Steel Dynamics (STLD) should consider re-visiting their aggressive capital return programs from the 2006-2008 peak, Citi analyst Alexander Hacking tells investors in a research note. The company's current cash flows are elevated and expected to remain so for the next three years, the analyst adds. Further, he believes their growth opportunities "are more limited given more inflated asset values." If each company committed to paying out 50% of discretionary operating cash flow over the next three years, Hacking estimates cash returns would total $3.1B or $9.88 per share for Nucor and $1.7B or $7.23 per share for Steel Dynamics without increasing leverage. This would still leave 45% of operating cash flow available for growth capex or acquisitions, more than sufficient to show that Section 232 profits are being reinvested, the analyst contends.

Outperform
Nucor upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie
Macquarie analyst David Lipschitz upgraded Nucor to Outperform and raised its price target to $75 from $70 saying valuation does not fully reflect widening metal spreads and earnings resilience through the cycle. The analyst expects steel prices to remain elevated and said upside risk to scrap costs is capped given his cautious view on iron ore and improving domestic scrap supply. Further, Lipschitz said cash generation remains strong and management is focused on investing in long-term growth and returning cash to shareholders.

Neutral
Nucor initiated with a Neutral at UBS
UBS analyst Andreas Bokkenheuser last night initiated Nucor with a Neutral rating and $65 price target. The analyst is cautious on the U.S. Steel sector as he believes demand is in structural decline, falling 1% per year over the past 20 years. The recent price rally was supply, not demand driven, Bokkenheuser tells investors in a research note. He believes that leading indicators now point to a mid-year price and volume reversal.
