08:24 EDTX, STLD, AKS, NWPXU.S. Steel disappointed Korea escapes pipe-dumping duties, Tribune-Review says
The Department of Commerce did not impose anti-dumping duties on oil and natural gas pipe products from South Korea in a trade case filed by U.S. Steel (X) and other producers, reported The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Commerce's preliminary decision imposes high duties only on India, and small levies on other nations, though Korea is the largest exporter among nine nations targeted. A U.S. Steel spokeswoman said, “We are disappointed by the preliminary determinations at the Department of Commerce and by its failure to deal with important issues at this stage of the investigations. Having said that, the determinations do confirm the existence of large-scale dumping in this market — something that has caused extensive injury to the domestic industry. When all of the facts come to light, we are confident that we will prevail with respect to all countries and exporters in the final determinations.” Shares of Northwest Pipe (NWPX), which manufacturers high-pressure steel pipeline systems, are down 1.25% in pre-market trading, while shares of U.S. Steel are down 3.9% and AK Steel (AKS) shares are down 1.5%. Another U.S. steelmaker is Steel Dynamics (STLD).

14:34 EDTX, AKSIron ore producers slide after Australia cuts price target on the commodity
Shares of iron ore producers are falling after Reuters reported that Australia reduced its 2015 price forecast for iron ore to $54.40 a tonne from $60.40 a tonne. According to Reuters, Australia's current projection on iron ore prices is based on its view that China, the commodity's main market, will produce less steel in 2015 and 2016 as as the seaborne supply of iron ore increases. PRICE ACTION: Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF) is down over 10%, BHP Billiton (BHP) is lower by 2.3%, and Vale (VALE) is down 4% in afternoon trading. Steel stocks, including United States Steel (X), AK Steel Holding (AKS), and Nuco (NUE) are also sliding in afternoon trading.

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.
