What are analysts saying about AK Steel Holding stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AK Steel Holding stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "AK Steel’s earnings estimates have been going up lately. The company has outperformed the Zacks categorized 'Steel-Producers' industry in the last three months. AK Steel should benefit from the strength in the automotive market and higher shipments of carbon steel products to automakers in 2016. It should also gain from the synergies of its acquisition of Severstal Dearborn. Favorable pricing trend for key raw materials is also expected to support its results this year. However, AK Steel remains exposed to macroeconomic uncertainties, particularly in Europe and Asia. The company also continues facing competition from cheap imports that flood the U.S. market. Moreover, AK Steel’s cost structure is higher than its peer group due to greater reliance on external supply of raw materials." (1/4/2017)

  • Citigroup Inc. analysts commented, "We believe that in addition to lower iron ore input costs and the acquisition of Dearborn Works, the changes that the company has made in its contract mix and operating footprint should help their competitive position and forecast AKS returning to positive FCF over the next several years," Hacking wrote in a note. In 2015, the company was able to achieve a breakeven cash flow result. In the first half of 2016, AK Steel generated FCF (ex-working capital) of $60 million. The next target will be to reach a position where they are earning their cost of capital."While we forecast a significant improvement in ROIC to ~8 percent over the next several years we believe this is still below their WACC which we estimate is closer to 10 percent," Hacking wrote in a note.Related Link: Steel Dynamics Has Over 33% Upside, According To CitiHacking highlighted it might be more difficult for AK Steel to compete with other producers, especially on spot sales of commodity grade products, as its rivals have cost advantages in the form of different production processes, lower labor costs and captive low cost raw materials.In addition, the company remains highly levered with $2.0 billion in outstanding debt and $1.2 billion in pension and OPEB obligations versus Citi estimate of 2016 EBITDA of $511 million for a net leverage ratio of 6x."This high debt load poses a risk to AKS if economic and industry conditions deteriorate and could limit the ability of AKS to obtain additional financing," (8/22/2016)
