08:18 EDTCLFCliffs Natural reports Q2 U.S. iron ore pellet sales volume down 2% to 4.2M tons
Cliffs Natural reports U.S. Iron Ore pellet sales volume in Q2 was 4.2M tons, a 2% decrease when compared to the second quarter of 2014. The decrease was driven by reduced year-over-year export sales and lower demand by U.S. mills, partially offset by improved shipping conditions on the Great Lakes. Cash production cost per ton in U.S. Iron Ore was $56.06, down 9% from $61.37 in the prior year's second quarter. The decrease was driven by a reduction in salaried workforce headcount and overall reductions in employment costs along with a year-over-year reduction in energy rates. This was partially offset by decreases in production volume due to scheduled maintenance and repairs. Realized revenue rates of $78.32 per ton were lower than previously guided as a result of a significant adjustment to the hot-band steel price estimate for one major contract.

08:32 EDTAKSAK Steel expects 'improved results' for Q3 and 2H15
The company commented, "Chief among these reasons are anticipated higher shipments, improving carbon steel spot market prices, increased production levels resulting in lower per ton operating costs, and the continuing benefit of lower raw materials costs, in particular, iron ore. The company expects shipments to customers in its largest market, automotive, to remain strong. In addition, the company expects the level of what the company believes are unfairly traded imports of carbon steel products will continue to decline in the second-half of the year, principally because of the pending and anticipated future steel industry trade cases, resulting in increased domestic steel shipments and a continuing improving trend in selling prices."
