PARTIAL BUY
Shares have been cut in half since April and are not trading at only 3x earnings, among the cheapest stocks out there. (Hit $34 in early April.) Last Friday, CLF reported a mixed quarter: revenue beat and in-line earnings. Stock plunged 9%, but rebounded today 6%. Shares may be getting too cheap. If on Wednesday the Fed announces more rate hikes, buy. But if there are hikes lasting through the summer, a buy could be tougher.

DON'T BUY
The CEO has done a great job, but this stock doesn't work. This is not the market for this kind of company where people are worried about the economy. Shares will go lower, not higher.
steel
STRONG BUY
Really likes the CEO and they have boast $930 million of free cash flow in the first half of 2022, and estimate to top $2.5 billion by year's end against an $8 billion market cap (=30% free cash flow yield). Revenues are coming from the car business which are seeing pent-up demand due to aging cars out there. CC will likely renegotiate upcoming contracts at prices higher than current. Shares were down (45% in the last 3 months), because they took an accounting hit for the debt they bought back earlier at a discount.
steel
BUY
Is down a lot YTD, but he still likes it. Cars make up over 50% of their business. Car demand is high and will stay so, because the average age of cars is 12.2 years, so they will wear out. We need to build more cars and there's demand for them. Their free cash flow yield is 34%. Amazing. They're buying back shares.
steel
STRONG BUY
Reported a big beat and gain, but shares went down. In the last 12 months, it reported $6 billion in EBITDA. They raised their guidance on price by 17%. Volumes are picking up, including the carmakers. It's annoying that shares are down today--the market is down, and there could be some profit-taking. Today's price is a definite buy. It boasts free cash flow of $6 billion pr 40% FCF yield, which cannot be found in megacap tech stock, and CLF is buying back shares. They are anchored by fixed, long-term contracts. The market is a dingbat when CLF reports.
steel
DON'T BUY
It's a cyclical stock and not a growth company. If car demand slows down--and it will--CLF will suffer, despite a good CEO. He sold this in the mid-20s.
steel
STRONG BUY
Factories in America are being built and are buying cars. Both need steel. Demand is strong.
steel
BUY
He started buying it 10 days ago at $22, now it's pushing $26. 6000 of the March 26 calls. It keeps moving up and up. Expect better returns than high-PE stocks. He added to his position today.
steel
BUY
He just sold Marathon Oil to buy this. This company is on fire, shares low, so it's time to buy. Interest rate scares (like now) open opportunities to buy beaten stocks like this.
steel
BUY
An inflation-protection trade: Energy is the obvious play. Kinder Morgan is a laggard in energy, though not directly tied to oil prices, but will benefit during this rally. Also likes Cleveland-Cliffs which reports tomorrow. Down from highs, but still very high and lifted by high steel prices. Upside here as the economy expands. Alaska Air. Costs are up, but airline are good at passing on costs to customers. People will come out of hibernation to fly, so demand is up.
steel
BUY
Has long liked this steelmaker. They report Friday, which he expects to be decent based on a cleaned-up balance sheet and strong management.
steel
STRONG BUY
His favourite stock for 2022. Shares are down since its all-time high in October, because steel prices declined a little, but remain high. Gross margins and volumes remain high and will stay so, because car production is rising and people are being major appliances as they buy new houses. PLus, infrastructure spending is coming. All tailwinds. $2.5 billion free cash flow projected for 2022 or 25% free cash flow yield. Stick with it.

TOP PICK

Strong 1-year growth. Reduction in Chinese steel production has benefited North American companies. Has recently been recommended as a BUY by David Burrows and Jim Lebenthal. Social media mentions have increased 131% over the past 7 days.

steel
BUY
Has pulled back, but it's up from $10 in 2020. US and Canadian steel should do well over next couple of years. China is not increasing production, to help the environment. Not as high quality as NUE, but more leveraged to steel prices. He owns STLC. He'd be fine owning this one or NUE. Lots of earnings leverage as the cycle improves.
steel
BUY

CLF made a deal today to buy Ferrous Processing. CLF has been turbulent, but its long-term trend remains intact. This deal secures a source of scarp metal for CC, which they can turn into steel--so this is a strategically important deal. This is the future of steel--of making steel out of scrap metal using electric furnaces. Steel is pricey and will come down eventually, but CLF is making money hand over fist, beacuse they buy cheap raw materials, but sell expensive end products. Also, CLF is delevering. Watch for their free cash flow when they report in a few weeks.
