Metals Meltdown

Q4 2015: The course of true love never did run smooth (for steelmakers)

February 17, 2016 (6:15 mins)

Chris Davis, Peter Brennan, & Sebastian Lewis

Despite being the season for romance and celebration, the metals industry has been experiencing no such love of late. When it comes to earnings and the overall financial health of major producers -- on both the ferrous and nonferrous sides -- there is seemingly angst and heartbreak in recent headlines taken from our very own market reports, Daily Briefing, Platts Steel Markets Daily and Metals Daily.

With Sebastian Lewis on a temporary hiatus, the Dynamic Duo of Chris Davis and Peter Brennan also discuss antidumping measures proposed by the US and issued by the European Commission, centering on imports of steel products from China; and give their expert outlook for steel mills moving further into Q1 2016.
