12:35 EDTNUE, AKS, X, MT, STLDSteelmakers fall after Nucor, AK Steel profit warnings
Shares of steel makers Nucor Corporation (NUE) and AK Steel (AKS) are declining after the companies pre-announced lower than expected second quarter earnings per share. WHAT'S NEW: Nucor earlier today provided Q2 EPS guidance of 35c-40c, versus analysts' consensus estimate of 62c. The company said that the operating performance of its steel mills had been weakened by a decline in the profitability of its structural steel. Meanwhile, yield loss at Nucor's new direct reduced iron plant in St. James Parish, Louisiana is expected to reduce its Q2 operating EPS by 6c, the company stated. AK Steel expects to report a (2c)-(6c) per share loss for Q2, excluding the impact of losses on derivatives, the company reported last night. Analysts on average had expected the company to report a 10c per share profit. The company cited the harsh winter weather and hedging losses as reasons for its lower than expected Q2 profit. The steel maker expects its hedging losses to be "substantially offset" in the second half of the year by lower commodities costs or hedging gains. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other steel makers include U.S. Steel (X), ArcelorMittal (MT) and Steel Dynamics (STLD) PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Nucor declined 87c, or 1.7%, to $50.81, while ArcelorMittal was down nearly 1% and U.S. Steel was down 0.3%. However, shares of AK Steel were up 13c, or 1.8%, to $7.57 and Steel Dynamics was up 0.4%.

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.
