11:29 EDTAKS, NUE, MT, STLDAK Steel rallies after BofA/Merrill upgrade to Buy
Shares of AK Steel (AKS) are rising after Bank of America/Merrill Lynch upgraded the stock to Buy from Neutral in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: AK Steel should be boosted by stronger demand for electrical steel in the second half of this year, driven partly by strong demand for the product from India, Bank of America/Merrill Lynch analyst Timna Tanners wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Additionally, the company should benefit from lower cost pressures, due to declining iron ore prices and a drop in its costs for Magnetation in 2015, Timna stated. Magnetation, a joint venture formed in 2011, produces iron ore. Tanners raised her price target on AK Steel to $10 from $9. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On June 10, Goldman Sachs predicted that AK Steel and another company in the sector, U.S. Steel (X), would benefit from falling raw material costs and stronger margins. The firm reiterated Buy ratings on both stocks. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other steel makers include Nucor, (NUE), ArcelorMittal (MT) and Steel Dynamics (STLD). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, AK Steel climbed 5.6% to $7.

08:35 EDTNUENucor: Overall operating performance at steel mill improved in Q3
The company said it expects increased profitability in sheet, structural, bar and plate steel. Structural steel had no major outages in the third quarter, as compared to the planned three week outage at Nucor-Yamato Steel in the second quarter associated with our $115M sheet piling capital project. The strongest markets for the steel mills continue to be manufactured goods, including energy and automotive. Though third quarter results are expected to be much improved from the second quarter, imports remain at high levels, applying downward pressure on pricing. The performance of the fabricated construction products businesses is expected to improve compared to the second quarter of 2014, reflecting improving conditions in the nonresidential construction markets. Although nonresidential construction markets are at historically low levels, they are improving. The performance of the raw materials segment includes an anticipated operating loss of $27M at our direct reduced iron plant in St. James Parish, Louisiana.
08:32 EDTNUENucor sees Q3 EPS 70c-75c, consensus 61c
Projected Q3 results include estimated LIFO credit of $14.5M. Included in the projected third quarter results is an estimated $12M related to the partial write down of assets within the steel mills segment.
