What are Wall Street analysts saying about United States Steel stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about United States Steel stock:
- 1. Cowen Inc 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. "The issue is that when iron ore prices are falling, the company does not benefit from the reduction in input costs that a mill which is short iron ore would be able to achieve.Bottom line, a decline in HRC prices would prove to be "detrimental" for U.S. Steel's overall earnings power due to its "significant" (9/22/2017)
- 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. Communications with energy-related metal distributors implies potential upside opportunity for the domestic manufacturers during 2H17. 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."

United States Steel (NYSE:X) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
