09:12 EDTNUENucor sees Q1 operating performance of raw materials to decrease
Cites anticipated operating loss of approximately $37M at Nucor Steel Louisiana and decreased performanced of scrap processing business and natural gas drilling working interests. The production operations of Nucor Steel Louisiana have remained suspended since the equipment failure related to the process gas heater occurred on November 2, 2014.

09:11 EDTNUENucor says conditions remain challenging in energy markets
The company commented, "Conditions remain challenging in energy markets, in which the collapse in oil prices and continued high levels of imported oil country tubular goods products has caused an inventory glut in the pipe and tube sector. Automotive markets remain strong and are continuing to improve. We continue to see improving demand in the nonresidential construction markets. Once energy market steel inventories are rebalanced later this year, we expect overall steel demand to meet or exceed levels seen in 2014. The overall operating performance of the downstream products segment for the first quarter of 2015 is expected to decrease from the fourth quarter of 2014 due to typical seasonality experienced in the first quarter; however, the results of the downstream products segment in the first quarter of 2015 are expected to increase over the first quarter of 2014 due to both lower input costs and improved volumes, supporting the resiliency of the slow but steady growth in nonresidential construction markets."

12:39 EDTNUESteels stocks lower after report of rising China exports, analyst note
Steel stocks are lower after a Wall Street Journal report on increasing Chinese steel exports and an analyst note that lowered price targets on the sector. WHAT'S NEW: A Wall Street Journal report from Sunday night pointed out that China's steel exports rose 63% to 9.2M tons in January from a year earlier. China produces as much steel as the rest of the world combined and as the country's growth slows it is shipping its excess steel overseas, resulting in lower prices and spurring steel producers around the globe to seek government protection. ANALYST VIEW: In a note to investors, Jefferies said steel fundamentals stayed challenging throughout the first quarter and the firm lowered its price targets on a number of names in the sector to account for its reduced estimates. Jefferies lowered its price target on U.S. Steel (X) to $21 from $26, cut its price target on Schnitzer Steel (SCHN) to $17 from $20, reduced its price target on Nucor (NUE) to $57 from $61, and trimmed its target on AK Steel (AKS) to $3.75 from $4.75. Jefferies noted that a majority of its contacts expect steel prices to trough sometime in the second quarter and the firm said it believes "mini-mill" producers like Steel Dynamics (STLD) and Nucor are best positioned in the group. PRICE ACTION:In midday trading, United States Steel is down 1.24%, AK Steel is lower by 2%, Schnitzer Steel Industries is down 4.3%, Steel Dynamics is down 0.96%, and Nucor is up fractionally.
11:49 EDTNUEChina steel exports set to rise from last year's level, WSJ says
As China's economy slows it is exporting its excess steel in greater amounts and is causing a backlash from other steel producers who are seeking government protection from falling prices, says the Wall Street Journal. China's steel exports in January were up 63% to 9.2M tons from a year earlier, added the Wall Street Journal. Publicly traded companies in the space include U.S. Steel (X), AK Steel (AKS), Steel Dynamics (STLD) and Nucor Corporation (NUE). Reference Link
