19:55 EDTCLF, PKX, STLD, NUE, X, MTGlobal steel production capacity exceeds orders taken, WSJ reports
Global steel mills have the capacity to produce 1.8B tons of steel annually, but will only take orders for 1.5B tons of steel this year, and it is expected that by 2016 an additional 100 new mills with a total production capacity of 350M tons will be operable, according to a Wall Street Journal report. The report notes that the world's five biggest steel companies control just 18.2% of the world's supply, compared to 50.6% in the auto industry, and that government-backing of many steel mills has made consolidation difficult for steel majors.

07:32 EDTSTLDSteel Dynamics sees Q2 steel ops profitability to be similar to Q1
Improved second quarter 2015 shipments will be offset by unexpected metal margin compression, driven by steel imports remaining much higher than originally anticipated, resulting in average quarterly steel prices decreasing more than average quarterly scrap prices. The benefit of reduced scrap pricing was realized in the second quarter; but, the continued flood of steel imports thus far in 2015 continued to pressure steel product pricing to a greater degree. However, steel pricing has recently begun to stabilize and domestic steel demand remains solid. Continued demand for the company's fabricated steel joist and decking products indicates the non-residential construction market is continuing a positive trend. Second quarter 2015 profitability from the company's fabrication operations is expected to be higher than near-record sequential first quarter 2015 results. Metals recycling financial results are also expected to be higher for the second quarter 2015, compared to the sequential first quarter, based on both increased shipments and metal margin, as pricing volatility subsided.
