Myriad Genetics announced that results from the EMPATHY-P clinical study of Prolaris in patients newly diagnosed with prostate cancer will be highlighted at the 30th Annual Congress of the European Association of Urology. The EMPATHY-P study evaluated the Prolaris test on 525 patient biopsy samples to determine the aggressiveness of prostate cancer in these newly diagnosed patients from five European countries including: Italy, Germany, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. The patients' biopsy samples also were evaluated using standard clinical pathology methods, which were then compared to the Prolaris test results. The EMPATHY-P data showed, overall, that the Prolaris test found 42% of the European men evaluated had a risk profile that was either lower or higher than would be expected using clinical pathology. Interestingly, this finding is consistent with the previously published U.S. Prostate Biopsy Research study, which found 51% of U.S. patients had a risk profile that differed from clinical pathology.

19:07 EDTSTLDSteel Dynamics sees Q1 adjusted EPS 12c-16c, may not compare to consensus 22c
Steel Dynamics provided Q1 earnings guidance. Excluding approximately $17M, or 4c per diluted share, of estimated premium and related expenses associated with the company's repayment of $350M in senior notes in March, the company provided Q1 adjusted earnings guidance in the range of 12c-16c per diluted share. Including these charges, earnings guidance for Q1 would have been in the range of 8c-12c per diluted share. During Q1, two important industry developments occurred: Domestic steel product pricing declined to levels that are now globally competitive, which the company believes will result in reduced steel import levels beginning in thQ2. Despite continued solid domestic steel consumption, product pricing decreased meaningfully due to delayed customer orders caused by the volatility in scrap prices and inventory buildup related to excessive 4Q14 steel imports. The company believes the surplus inventory can be right-sized in the April and May 2015 timeframe, which coupled with continued demand, should result in increased domestic steel mill utilization. Ferrous scrap pricing declined between 25%-30% during February, which the company believes will benefit metal margin. Ferrous scrap pricing disconnected from iron ore pricing during 2014, as iron ore prices declined dramatically, while scrap prices remained relatively unchanged. Historically these commodities are highly correlated; therefore, a sharp decline in scrap prices was not unexpected.

12:39 EDTSTLDSteels stocks lower after report of rising China exports, analyst note
Steel stocks are lower after a Wall Street Journal report on increasing Chinese steel exports and an analyst note that lowered price targets on the sector. WHAT'S NEW: A Wall Street Journal report from Sunday night pointed out that China's steel exports rose 63% to 9.2M tons in January from a year earlier. China produces as much steel as the rest of the world combined and as the country's growth slows it is shipping its excess steel overseas, resulting in lower prices and spurring steel producers around the globe to seek government protection. ANALYST VIEW: In a note to investors, Jefferies said steel fundamentals stayed challenging throughout the first quarter and the firm lowered its price targets on a number of names in the sector to account for its reduced estimates. Jefferies lowered its price target on U.S. Steel (X) to $21 from $26, cut its price target on Schnitzer Steel (SCHN) to $17 from $20, reduced its price target on Nucor (NUE) to $57 from $61, and trimmed its target on AK Steel (AKS) to $3.75 from $4.75. Jefferies noted that a majority of its contacts expect steel prices to trough sometime in the second quarter and the firm said it believes "mini-mill" producers like Steel Dynamics (STLD) and Nucor are best positioned in the group. PRICE ACTION:In midday trading, United States Steel is down 1.24%, AK Steel is lower by 2%, Schnitzer Steel Industries is down 4.3%, Steel Dynamics is down 0.96%, and Nucor is up fractionally.
11:49 EDTSTLDChina steel exports set to rise from last year's level, WSJ says
As China's economy slows it is exporting its excess steel in greater amounts and is causing a backlash from other steel producers who are seeking government protection from falling prices, says the Wall Street Journal. China's steel exports in January were up 63% to 9.2M tons from a year earlier, added the Wall Street Journal. Publicly traded companies in the space include U.S. Steel (X), AK Steel (AKS), Steel Dynamics (STLD) and Nucor Corporation (NUE). Reference Link
