12:35 EDTMT, NUE, X, STLD, AKSSteelmakers 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%.
