09:05 EDTNUENucor sees Q1 EPS 30c-35c, consensus 49c
The larger factor impacting Q1 was severe weather conditions, which has disrupted customer demand, decreased the amount of railcar availability and has exacerbated conditions in the seasonally weaker performance of our fabricated construction products businesses. Additionally, import levels have continued to negatively impact pricing and margins at our bar and sheet mills. Looking forward, we continue to see small but noticeable improvements in the nonresidential construction markets. Projected first quarter results include an estimated LIFO charge of $14.5M, or 3c per diluted share, compared to a charge of $17.4M, or 4c per diluted share, in Q4 and a charge of $18M, or 3c per diluted share, in 1Q13. Also included in the projected Q1 results is an estimated $9M charge, or 2c per diluted share, related to the disposal of assets within the steel mills segment. Earnings in Q4 included an out-of-period non-cash gain of $21.3M, or 7c per diluted share, related to a correction to a deferred tax balance.

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
