Steel Dynamics sees Q3 EPS 66c-70c, consensus 71c

Steel Dynamics provided third quarter 2019 earnings guidance in the range of 66c-70c per diluted share. Comparatively, the company's sequential second quarter 2019 earnings were 87c per diluted share and prior year third quarter earnings were $1.69 per diluted share, which included charges related to fair value purchase accounting adjustments of 4c per diluted share and a tax benefit of 4c per diluted share. Third quarter 2019 earnings from the company's steel operations are expected to decrease in comparison to sequential second quarter results. The reduced earnings are primarily related to lower profitability from the company's sheet steel operations, as shipments and average steel pricing declined in the quarter, more than offsetting lower scrap costs. Underlying domestic steel demand remains principally intact for the primary steel consuming sectors, with particular strength in construction. Third quarter 2019 profitability for the company's metals recycling platform is also expected to decrease when compared to sequential second quarter results, as a result of declining ferrous and nonferrous commodity prices coupled with steady shipments. Third quarter 2019 earnings from the company's steel fabrication business are expected to improve from sequential second quarter results, due to higher shipments and steady metal spread, as demand remains strong. The company continues to experience strong steel fabrication order backlogs and customers remain optimistic concerning non-residential construction projects.

Steel Dynamics downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Longbow
Longbow analyst Christopher Olin downgraded Steel Dynamics to Neutral from Buy without a price target. The analyst says his confidence in the Steel Mill segment's ability to meet or beat expectations in the second half of 2019 is eroding. Recent checks with steel distributors revealed a reversal in underlying market sentiment, Olin tells investors in a research note. As such, the analyst sees "lost pricing momentum" for Steel Dynamics.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Foot Locker (FL) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird and to Neutral from Positive at Susquehanna. 2. Steel Dynamics (STLD) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Longbow with analyst Christopher Olin saying his confidence in the Steel Mill segment's ability to meet or beat expectations in the second half of 2019 is eroding. 3. Abraxas Petroleum (AXAS) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Ladenburg with analyst Michael Schmitz saying reduced estimated free cash flow resulting from lower projected commodity prices, combined with uncertainty resulting from the escalation of the trade war, will be additional headwinds for the Exploration and Production group. 4. Elanco (ELAN) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Michael Ryskin saying while the acquisition of Bayer's (BAYRY) Animal Health business could turn out positive in the longer term, there is too much uncertainty in the near-term, including which parts of the portfolio will be divested due to antitrust issues. 5. Cree (CREE) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Harsh Kumar reducing his estimates reducing to reflect broader weakness in the LED market and the impact of Huawei on the Cree's Wolfspeed business. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Steel Dynamics downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst David Gagliano downgraded Steel Dynamics (STLD) to Market Perform from Outperform and lowered his price target for the shares to $30 from $40. The analyst, who still believes shares are undervalued on longer-term fair value estimates, finds the stock's risk/reward more balanced in the near term. There is more downside risk versus upside potential to underlying spot prices into year end, and Steel Dynamics' near-term company-specific catalysts are limited, Gagliano tells investors in a research note. He believes the company, between now and 2022, is more exposed to near-term spot steel pricing volatility. Gagliano coupled the downgrade of Steel Dynamics with an upgrade of Arch Coal (ARCH) to Outperform from Market Perform.
