GrafTech is the low-cost producer of high quality graphite electrodes needed to make steel in electric arc furnaces. The company has a history of solid performance in a cyclical business and is run by savvy managers with a long-term outlook. GrafTech recently purchased its largest supplier and should begin improving input quality and benefitting from cost savings. While demand for steel wil ebb and flow, GrafTech's cost advantages remain.
