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. According to Zacks Investment Research, "The estimates for the current quarter and fiscal for U.S. Steel have been going down lately. The company is facing certain operational issues in its Flat-Rolled unit. U.S Steel also cut its EBITDA (earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization) and earnings guidance for 2017. U.S. Steel has underperformed the Zacks Categorized Steel-Producers industry over the past six months. Moreover, downtime associated with the implementation of the asset revitalization plan is expected to affect its production volumes in 2017. Its tubular business also faces weak demand in the energy market." (5/23/2017)
- 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."

Consensus Ratings for United States Steel Corporation (NYSE:X) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings 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). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus 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.
