NEW YORK, July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, Investors' Reports announced new research reports highlighting The
Sherwin-Williams Company (NYSE: SHW), Nucor Corporation (NYSE: NUE), Steel
Dynamics Inc. (NASDAQ: STLD), Chemtura Corporation (NYSE: CHMT), and AK Steel
Holding Corporation (NYSE: AKS). Today's readers may access these reports free

The Sherwin-Williams Company Research Report

On July 18, 2013, Sherwin-Williams Company (Sherwin Williams) announced its Q2
2013 financial results. The Company's consolidated net sales increased 5.5%
YoY to approximately $2.7 billion in Q2 2013 due to higher paint sales volume
in its Paint Stores Group. Diluted net income per common share in the quarter
increased to $2.46 per share compared to $2.17 per share in Q2 2012, driven by
improved operating results of the Paint Stores and Global Finishes Groups.
Commenting on the results, Christopher M. Connor, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer, said, "The Paint Stores Group architectural volume growth was strong
across all end market segments. Our Consumer Group minimized the impact on
segment profit of the lost business through improved operating efficiencies.
Our Global Finishes Group continues to improve its operating margins through
improved operating efficiencies and good cost control. The Latin America
Coatings Group is managing to improve its core operating margins through
selling price increases and good cost control despite the difficult
environment in which they are operating." The Company anticipates Q3 2013
consolidated net sales growth of 6% to 9% YoY, and estimated diluted net
income per common share to range between $2.55 and $2.65. The Full Research

Nucor Corporation Research Report

On July 18, 2013, Nucor Corp. (Nucor) announced its Q2 2013 financial results.
The Company reported consolidated net earnings of $85.1 million, or $0.27 per
diluted share as compared to $112.3 million, or $0.35 per diluted share in Q2
2012. Consolidated net sales decreased 8.6% YoY to approximately $4.7 billion.
Total tons shipped to outside customers were 5,839,000 tons, reflecting an
increase of 2% QoQ and a decrease of 1% YoY. According to Nucor Executives,
the Company expects to see a modest improvement in earnings for the Q3 2013
and also expects improvements in sheet steel pricing. The Company also expects
to see increased earnings from its downstream businesses in the Q3 2013,
continuing the upward trend observed in the Q2 2013. The Full Research Report

Steel Dynamics Inc. Research Report

On July 17, 2013, Steel Dynamics Inc. (Steel Dynamics) announced its Q2 2013
financial results. The Company reported net income of $29 million, or $0.13
per diluted share as compared to $44.5 million or $0.20 per diluted share in
Q2 2012. "Specific to product pricing, the second quarter proved most
challenging for our sheet and structural steel operations," said President and
Chief Executive Officer, Mark Millett. "Slower anticipated economic growth in
China coupled with suppressed economic growth in the European community
influenced near-term market sentiment. The persistent uncertainty in the
domestic economic environment continued to influence customer buying patterns
as they maintained low inventory levels. Domestic oversupply, coupled with
increased quarter-over-quarter steel imports, resulted in decreased quarterly
selling values." The Full Research Report on Steel Dynamics Inc. - including
full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to

Chemtura Corporation Research Report

On July 18, 2013, Chemtura Corp. (Chemtura) announced its preliminary Q2 2013
financial results. The Company reported estimated net sales of $735 million
versus $741 million in Q2 2012. Adjusted EBITDA is estimated to be $109
million versus $118 million in Q2 2012. Craig A. Rogerson, Chairman, President
and Chief Executive Officer of Chemtura, commented, "With the benefit of
particularly strong sales in North America and in South America, Chemtura
AgroSolutions delivered record performance despite the delayed start to the
Northern Hemisphere growing season this year. Our other segments performed in
line with the expectations we discussed in our June 6, 2013 press release, but
encouragingly, each delivered modest improvements." The Company will discuss
further details of its Q2 2013 performance on the release of its final results
on July 30, 2013, after the market hours. The Full Research Report on Chemtura
Corporation - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price

AK Steel Holding Corporation Research Report

On July 23, 2013, AK Steel Holding Corp. (AK Steel) reported its Q2 2013
financial results. The Company reported net sales of $1.4 million on shipments
of 1,323,700 tons compared to approximately $1.5 million on shipments of
1,335,800 tons in Q2 2012. Lower shipments to the carbon spot market and
electrical steel market, and unplanned outage of the Middletown Works blast
furnace caused 12,800 tons reduced shipments during the quarter, partially
offset by increased shipments to the automotive market. The Company reported
adjusted EBITDA of $47.5 million compared to $88.3 million in Q2 2012.
"Excluding the blast furnace repair costs, both planned and unplanned, AK
Steel's second quarter performance improved compared to our first quarter,"
said James L. Wainscott, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of AK
Steel. The Full Research Report on AK Steel Holding Corporation - including
