What are analysts saying about United States Steel Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about United States Steel Corporation stock:

  • 1. Cowen and Company analysts commented, "material exposure" to spot flat-rolled prices should have investors concerned as nearly 60 percent of the U.S. flat-rolled segment is exposed to any move in the spot market.Moreover, U.S. Steel's vertically integrated iron ore supply structure adds another headwind to the story, the analyst continued. The company should be seen as an "undercover iron ore play" because when iron ore prices rise, steel prices normally follows the lead and the company benefits from the fixed price of its internally sourced iron ore."This enables margins to expand more rapidly than a steel mill that is having to buy iron orein the open market," the analyst explained.

  • 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We increased estimates for U.S. Steel (X) to reflect the favorable trends evident throughout the Oil-Country Tubular Goods (OCTG) market.

Specifically, we believe the X Tubular Segment could realize a 30-40% volume improvement over the next 4- 5 quarters, supported by real consumption growth and a channel refill (in certain areas). Our revised 2017 EPS forecast is $2.83 (up $0.11), which is supporting a new 12-month price target of $35 per share (up from $29-30)." (2/27/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "X last night reported 4Q16 adj. EPS of $0.27, exceeding JEFe -$0.18 and cons -$0.03, and reported EBITDA of $211m, exceeding JEFe $166m and cons $181m. However, 2017 EBITDA guidance of $1.3b likely falls short investors' expectations ~$1.5b, despite coming above cons $1.2b. Encouragingly, X noted it starts 2017 with improving market conditions and with continued savings benefits from Carnegie Way as it embarks on asset revitalization investment. Reiterate Buy."
