Steel prices pointing straight up



June 04, 2008 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: RIO , X , MT

As long as I'm posting images that speak volumes, how about this steel price chart!  I have delved deep into the coal and iron ore industries, and I can unequivocally state that there is no relief in sight from rising input costs for the steel industry.  The price of steel, therefore, is just getting warmed up.

Thanks for this post (and all of them!). No doubt, steel prices are going up. bellard had a great blog post about a month ago with a bunch of great steel picks Steel Stocks: Update from latest earnings reports. Also from you ticker at the top Vale (RIO) is a great call for iron mining. And steel recyclers are also a great play. Metallico (MEA) is excellent... well, not today so much :). But when it finds its new bottom after today, it will be a great pick.

GNA is a good steel play with room to run and is cheaper than NUE or X so it can be bought in greater volume.
