More From Andrew Lane

Supply disruptions and trade issues have boosted pricing across the supply chain, but stocks remain overvalued.

Additional countries have received exemptions from the Trump administration's tariff program, but our steel and aluminum decks are unchanged on the news.

We still expect the tariffs set to be imposed next week to be targeted, but a more blanket increase would have major impacts on both U.S.-based manufactures and potentially the broader economy.

We've slightly raised our fair value estimate, but maintain a negative outlook for the broader U.S. steelmaking industry as decelerating gross capital formation in China weighs on steel prices and metal margins contract.

Concerns about the growth prospects of the aluminum company's aerospace exposure over a longer time horizon lead us to lower our fair value estimate.
