ArcelorMittal (MT-N) or US Steel (X-N)? Arcelor is a global play while US is an American play. Depends on your view of the global economy versus the US economy. He thinks the US will probably lead because they were the first to start stimulus.

Believes that food prices are likely to go higher as diets improve in the emerging markets. This one has been depressed because of its attempted acquisition of CF Industries. Once that is completed it could very well move ahead.

Great industrial operations. The difficulty is, it has a big financial arm. Essentially you are getting a quasi-financial, which is going to be a drag over the next few years. You probably won't get a decent dividend anytime soon because they will want to reinvest their cash into the business.

Even cutting dividend in half was not enough to drive the stock down to where it had been. Could see it getting back into the low $30’s in 2 or 3 years.

This is the management that got everything absolutely right. US housing market was a house of cards and they bet against it and it paid off in spades. Took a dive in March when the market turned around however way ahead of where they where 5 years ago. This is a play on management and the long-term strategic positioning of the stock.
