What are Wall Street analysts saying about Cleveland-Cliffs stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Cleveland-Cliffs stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cleveland-Cliffs is expected to gain from higher steel demand in the United States. It is witnessing strong demand across a number of markets including automotive and construction. It has raised its sales volume expectations for 2018 for the U.S. Iron Ore unit factoring in strong demand. The company also remains focused on de-leveraging its balance sheet. The company is also expected to benefit from its pellet supply contracts with its U.S. iron ore customers, which will help it mitigate the impact of fluctuations in seaborne iron ore pricing. Cleveland-Cliffs has also outperformed the industry it belongs to over the past six months. However, Cleveland-Cliffs is facing a challenging operating environment in its Australian operations and pricing headwinds. Demand for iron ore in China also remain soft. " (6/6/2018)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Cleveland-Cliffs reported Q3 results with an EBITDA miss of $154M versus consensus estimates of $166M. The company slightly reduced volume guidance in the U.S. and Australia, while maintaining prior cost guidance in the U.S., and increased Australian cost guidance (mostly as a result of the weaker USD). The company cut 2017 US sales guidance as a result of a single large buyer reducing orders, which has brought down our Q4 estimate to $123M, from $185M. The company is now planning for $270M in capex over the next twelve months, largely from the construction of the HBI plant. With the HBI plant now fully incorporated into our model, and Q4 results priced in, we see an appropriate buying window." (10/20/2017)
