11:29 EDTNUE, STLD, AKS, MTAK 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.

Total fourth quarter steel mill shipments decreased 7% from the third quarter of 2014 and increased 2% over the fourth quarter of 2013. Fourth quarter downstream steel products shipments to outside customers decreased 17% from the third quarter of 2014 and increased 3% over the fourth quarter of 2013. Overall operating performance at our steel mills segment and downstream products segment for the fourth quarter of 2014 decreased compared to the third quarter of 2014 due to seasonality that is typical in the fourth quarter. Imports remain at exceptionally high levels, which contributed to the downward pressure on the performance of the steel mills segment.
