United States Steel Corporation Research Report

After 38 years of service with United States Steel, Michael Meyers retires
from being the company's General Manager - Sales. Burt Caldwell will take
Meyers' position for the North American flat-rolled sales team, effective
March 1. Caldwell will assume responsibility for the sales activities for the
company's service center, pipe and tube converter, agricultural and industrial
equipment customers. In January, United States Steel reported solid Q4 2012
results, its third consecutive quarter with all the segments having positive
operating results despite uncertainty in the global economy. For the current
fiscal year the company expects a slight improvement in the European and
Tubular segment, and the flat-rolled segment expected to be near breakeven.
Five cents per share dividend on common stock is payable on March 8. The Full

Nucor Corporation Research Report

Nucor's Q4 2012 earnings were within the guidance range due to operating
profits that beat expectations. The company's Q1 2013 earnings expectations,
however, are below the Q4 level due to lower level of operating performance.
The company is also cautious about the construction markets. The iron and
steel industry is currently going through a difficult phase due to
insufficient demand for steel products. The financial crisis in Europe is
another area of concern for companies. Nevertheless, Nucor remains optimistic
as it has a diversified client base, which makes it not highly dependent on
the conditions prevalent in a particular region. Its strongest end market is
the manufactured goods, including automotive, energy and heavy equipment. On
April 15 the company will release its Q1 2013 earnings result. The Full

the Polish Industry forum, one of the most important economic conferences in

Gerdau SA Research Report

In 2012, Gerdau saw an increase in costs of important raw materials, including
scrap and freight, which affected the sector's profitability. In this
perspective, the company plans to enhance its operational efficiency in all
its markets, driven by the strategy of striving for higher levels of
profitability and sustainable development. One of the company's initiatives is
to increase investments in the mining area to add more profit and generate
significant results. In Q1 2013 Gerdau plans to expand the product mix in
Brazil with the start of production of flat steel products. Diversification
also helps the company to gain significant growth potential. The Full Research

Steel Dynamics, Inc. Research Report

Due to a four percent increase in shipments, Steel Dynamics' operating profits
from steel operations grew seven percent to $8 million in Q4 2012. The
company's quarterly EPS was at 27 cents on revenues of $1.7 billion, six cents
higher than the preceding quarter. With the US economy, one of the company's
biggest catalysts, and the steel industry slowly recovering, it expects to do
well in the coming years. Steel Dynamics remain optimistic that the organic
growth projects that it has identified in 2012 will position the company to
continue to build a strong enterprise. The company also sees potential in the
automotive and manufacturing sectors, believing them to build momentum in
2013. The Full Research Report on Steel Dynamics, Inc. - including full
