I have been in the steel business for 25+ years – buying and selling US domestically produced and imported steel from over 30 countries. Over the past 8 weeks we have not seen steel prices surge like this since 2008.
Supply concerns have spiked prices, but also, increased demand in finished goods – large appliances, construction materials – rebar, fasteners, steel beams, steel plate, etc
There is not relief in sight and many steel mills are having to purchase raw materials – iron ore and scrap at prices not seen since 2008.
That brings me to 3 🚀that will 🌙
MT – Arcelor Mittal
They are a dual benefit buy as they mine and produce – vertically integrated.
Their stock in June of 2008 stood at $297 – today it is $20. Facing a demand >>> supply situation not as great as we are at today.
I expect MT stock to increase by a minimum of 300-500% in very short order.
This is for a trade only and not long time hold.
It will increase over the next 8-12 weeks and accelerate after earnings until supply catches up with demand and it will.
It did and the stock dropped to $78 by October 2008.
Im telling you this one is going to MOON.
I have common stock but also have a VERY SIGNIFICANT position in June 18 2021 $25c
I am going to retire on this.
Massive recycling play here – these are the guys that supply scrap for steel manufacturing to companies that are “mini-mill” Electric Arc Furnaces that melt steel scrap and make rebar and other steel products.
Scrap prices just increased here in the United States by $90/ton – the largest increase since 2008.
In May 2008 It was trading at over $100/share.
Today it is $29/share.
I have common and smaller option positions.
This too will skyrocket and then trade out in early summer.
Vale like, MT is vertically integrated with mining and manufacturing.
May 2008 – $40/share
Today it is $16 share and on a blue sky trajectory – it will be $30 by March, maybe sooner.
Najarian is all over options on this one.
Google anything regarding “steel prices” and all you are going to see is exactly what I’m telling you – we are going to see all-time highs in steel prices next year and steel stocks are quickly going to move hot and fast.
MT – is my biggest play and I think you will see a lot more sector rotation out of tech and into materials betting further on stimulus and infrastructure spending.
