12:54 EDTSTLDSteel stocks trade higher ahead of Congressional Steel Caucus hearing
Steel manufacturing stocks are trading higher ahead of tomorrow's testimony at a Congressional Steel Caucus hearing. WHAT'S NEW: The United Steelworkers, or USW, will be joining Chief Executive Officers of steel companies and other representatives from the steel industry on Thursday, March 26 on Capitol Hill to testify at a Congressional Steel Caucus hearing on the "State of American Steel." The USW and the steel executives will speak to the state of the steel industry and how policies on trade are impacting manufacturing in the steel industry. WHAT'S NOTABLE: According to the American Iron and Steel Institute, year-to date total and finished steel imports are 7.977M and 6.41M net tons, respectively, up 23% and 36%, respectively, vs. the same period in 2014. In the past month, steelmakers including Nucor (NUE), AK Steel Holding (AKS) and Steel Dynamics (STLD) all issued profit warnings. On March 19, Nucor said "Overall operating performance at the steel mills segment for the first quarter of 2015 is expected to decrease significantly compared to the fourth quarter of 2014," citing lower selling prices and margins resulting from the "exceptionally high level of imports flooding the domestic market." The company also said "Total imports increased 38% in 2014 compared to 2013, with imports accounting for approximately 34% of the total domestic shipments in 2014. Global overcapacity built by state-owned enterprises is the biggest risk factor to our business." This morning, United States Steel Corporation (X) announced plans to consolidate its North American Flat-Rolled operations and temporarily idle its Granite City Works operations. The company noted that the consolidation is a result of challenging market conditions that reflect the cyclical nature of the industry. Global influences in the market like reduced steel prices, unfair trade, imports and fluctuating oil prices, continue to have an impact on the business, the company said. Publicly traded companies in the space including U.S. Steel , AK Steel and Steel Dynamics are all trading higher while Nucor is fractionally lower in midday trading.
