Zal me een zorg zijn welke aliassen Voda nog wel of niet erbij heeft of in het verleden heeft gehad, ik waardeer - als lezer van verschillende fora - zijn inhoudelijke bijdragen zeer.

Tja Voda,

Als je zelf 3 of 4 aliassen hebt moet je dan gaan zeuren als er iemand 5 of 6 heeft?
Zelf heb ik er 1 en ook op Iex nooit een ander gehad.
Een beetje hypocriet gedoe om een ander dan verwijten te maken. Om die ander met aap en ``eet je een banaan`` enz. te posten (gesteund door ``andere respectabele longers``) en vervolgens maar aan de moderator te mailen ;a.u.b. grijp in wat die shorter post.


Moet niet meer gekker worden hier.
Of is het probleem dat Silver een shorter is?
Deze zijn in mijn ogen net zo betrouwbaar als een ``longer``.

Overigens vooral nieuwe lezers worden met die meerdere aliassen om de tuin geleid en meestal puur en alleen voor eigen gewin.

Gewoon een dezelfde alias en netjes onderbouwd berichten; long of short.
Met ``vriendelijke groet

Chinese domestic steel price recedes further on wintery woes

Steel price levels in China maintained downward course well into New Year. Apart from slow demand from construction activity during winter rather slow economic activity. Based on a recent survey of major steel downstream industries, the steel-PMI was 49.98 in December, down 0.4 M-O-M.

Business activities in the manufacturing sectors remained strong in December, but the expansion slowed to some extent, and most manufacturing manufacturers acted to build up stocks. The transportation industry joined the construction sector into contraction in December.

However despair is the last word with Spring festival round the corner market is likely to see revival within a week’s time with stocking before the holiday as construction activity picks up after that.

TATA Steel Europe bags major rail supply order from French SNCF

TATA Steel Europe has won a two year contract to supply more than 200,000 tonnes of track to French rail operator SNCF. The contract will see Tata Steel supply the majority of SNCF’s rail requirements in lengths of up to 108 metres from its plant in Hayange, Northern France.

The Hayange rolling mill is supplied with steel from Tata Steel’s Scunthorpe steelworks in the UK.

As well as the new 108m-long rail, Hayange is also able to roll shorter lengths when required by customers. The shorter lengths can be processed in the heat-treatment facility, allowing rail operators to enhance performance and reduce costs associated with more frequent worn rail replacement.

The order was secured following a EUR 35 million investment by Tata Steel in 2011 which allowed the Hayange mill to produce 108m lengths of rail that SNCF will use throughout France’s standard and high-speed networks. The new order is an extension of a previous contract with SNCF.

The news comes just weeks after the unveiling of the new EUR 12 million heat-treatment facility at the Hayange plant, built as part of Tata Steel’s customer-focused approach to the market. Heat-treated rail can last up to three times longer than standard rail when used in high wear conditions such as heavy traffic, high axle loads or tight curves. The newly opened facility will allow Tata Steel to more than double its annual output of heat-treated rail from 55,000 to 125,000 tonnes.

ASDA announces 2013 Steel Man of the Year

The Association of Steel Distributors announced that Mr James (Jim) Barnett president of Grand Steel Products in Wixom, Mich is the recipient of the industry’s highest honor, the Steel Man of the Year Award. This annual ASD award honors one individual who embodies leadership, dedication, service and excellence in the steel industry. Barnett will be officially recognized at a black-tie event taking place at the Waldorf Astoria in Orlando during the ASD Annual Convention held March 20 to 22.

Mr Barnett said that “I am humbled and honored by receiving this award. It is so meaningful to me, being second-generation steel. Because of the high regard I have for both past and current members, as well as the accomplishments of the organization, I am especially honored to join the previous recipients of this award. As manufacturing in this country continues its comeback, I am proud to be involved in the distribution chain of the American-made product that has never gone away US made steel and the products now made from it.”

Barnett began his career more than 45 years ago as a shop worker at Republic Steel Corporation. He worked summers interning for an import and export company in Belgium and Germany. After graduating from college, he worked in sales for several flat-rolled steel distributors in Detroit before starting a distributorship in partnership with his brother, Stuart.

ASD President Lisa Goldenberg said that “Jim Barnett has been a loyal supporter, friend, mentor, and advisor to not only me, and my career, but countless others in the steel industry. Those that are fortunate enough to interact with Jim learn more about themselves, their career, and most importantly, the level of leadership he possesses.”

Questek ultra high strength high toughness ferrium receives approval for inclusion in aerospace industry

QuesTek Innovations LLC announced that its ultra high-strength, high toughness Ferrium® M54TM steel has been approved for inclusion in the aerospace industry’s Metallic Materials Properties Development & Standardization (MMPDS) Handbook. This marks QuesTek’s second fully-qualified alloy, following the 2008 MMPDS approval of its ultra high strength, high toughness, corrosion resistant Ferrium® S53® alloy, which is being used without toxic cadmium plating in landing gear and other corrosion-sensitive applications.

Using Integrated Computational Materials Engineering methodology and its Materials by Design® technology, QuesTek successfully designed and rapidly developed M54 steel to be a cost-effective, drop in replacement for AerMet® 100. The alloy design project was funded under two Small Business Innovation Research contracts sponsored by the US Navy Naval Air Systems Command.

QuesTek accelerated M54 steel from a clean sheet design to a precise chemical composition in less than one year, and produced the first 10-Ton ingot the following year. SAE International issued an Aerospace Material Specification (AMS 6516) two years later. With this MMPDS approval, M54 steel has reached full flight qualification from clean sheet design in less than six years.

The rapid development and approval of M54 steel proves that QuesTek can meet the goals of the Materials Genome Initiative, created by the White House Office of Science and Technology in June 2011, as a multi-agency effort to greatly accelerate the pace of discovery, reduce the cost and shorten the development and deployment time of advanced material systems (cutting in half the typical development of new advanced materials and its implementation time of about 20 years).

The MMPDS Handbook provides standardized design values for alloys used in aerospace structures, and is accepted by the Federal Aviation Administration, the Department of Defense, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The A- and B-Basis design minima for M54 steel will first be published in MMPDS-09, allowing engineers to design components using M54 steel for flight safety critical components such as landing gear and helicopter rotor shafts. M54 steel is also an upgrade from 4340 and Maraging steel grades, and is being used in demanding oil and gas and other industry applications.

Alcoa Resolves Alba Matter with U.S. Government

Alcoa World Alumina LLC Settles with DOJ

Alcoa Inc. Settles with SEC

Amounts to be Paid in Five Installments over Four Years

Government Recognizes Alcoa for its Cooperation and Compliance Efforts

NEW YORK--Alcoa Inc. (NYSE: AA) today announced the resolution of the investigations by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding certain legacy alumina contracts with Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba).

The settlement with the DOJ was reached with Alcoa World Alumina LLC (AWA). AWA is a company within Alcoa World Alumina and Chemicals (AWAC), the unincorporated bauxite mining and alumina refining venture between Alcoa Inc. and Alumina Limited.

As part of the DOJ resolution, subject to final court approval later today, AWA will pay a total of $223 million, including a fine of $209 million payable in five equal installments over four years. The first installment of $41.8 million, plus a one-time administrative forfeiture of $14 million, will be paid in the first quarter of 2014, and the remaining installments of $41.8 million each will be paid in the first quarters of 2015-2018. The $223 million amount is within the range previously disclosed by Alcoa Inc. During the second quarter of 2013, Alcoa recorded a $103 million charge ($62 million after non-controlling interest) for the DOJ investigation.

Under the terms of the DOJ resolution, AWA is pleading guilty to one count of violating the anti-bribery provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). The DOJ is bringing no case against Alcoa Inc.

Alcoa also settled civil charges filed by the SEC in an administrative proceeding relating to the anti-bribery, internal controls, and books and records provisions of the FCPA. Under the terms of the settlement with the SEC, Alcoa Inc. agreed to a settlement amount of $175 million, but will be given credit for the $14 million one-time forfeiture payment, which is part of the DOJ resolution, resulting in a total cash payment to the SEC of $161 million payable in five equal installments over four years. The first installment of $32.2 million will be paid to the SEC in the first quarter of 2014, and the remaining installments of $32.2 million each will be paid in the first quarters of 2015-2018.

There is no allegation in the filings by the DOJ and there is no finding by the SEC that anyone at Alcoa Inc. knowingly engaged in the conduct at issue.

The DOJ credited Alcoa for “the substantial cooperation provided to the Department” throughout the investigation. The DOJ also credited Alcoa with launching an independent investigation overseen by a special committee of the Board of Directors and implementing enhanced due diligence reviews of third party agents and consultants.

Similarly, the SEC has agreed that Alcoa “fully cooperated with the staff of the Commission.” The SEC has also acknowledged Alcoa’s extensive compliance efforts, including its comprehensive compliance reviews of anti-corruption policies and procedures and enhancements made to internal controls.

Alcoa welcomes the resolution of this legacy legal matter with the U.S. Government.

As previously disclosed, under an agreement between Alcoa Inc. and Alumina Limited, the costs (including all associated legal fees) of the settlements with the DOJ and SEC, as well as the $85 million civil settlement with Alba reached in October 2012, will be allocated between Alcoa Inc. and Alumina Limited on an 85% and 15% basis, respectively. As a result of the settlements with the DOJ and the SEC, including the impact of the allocation agreement between Alcoa and Alumina Limited, Alcoa will record a charge of $288 million ($243 million after-tax and non-controlling interest) in the fourth quarter of 2013. Taking into account this fourth-quarter charge, Alcoa will have recognized all costs associated with the resolution of the Alba civil suit and related government investigations.

But investors who understand that short-term stock price movements do not necessarily predict future underlying performance have plenty of reasons to be cautious about U.S. steel producers in the months ahead. Instead, here's why you should favor international competitor ArcelorMittal


...

That would be ArcelorMittal, which kept its head above water in the third quarter, and has a much better internal outlook going forward than its American rivals. ArcelorMittal grew earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization, or EBITDA, by 24% in the third quarter versus the same quarter in 2012. Going back further, steel production and shipments are both up over the first nine months, which drove its outperformance.

Conclusion: ArcelorMittal beats its U.S. rivals

Interestingly, ArcelorMittal has actually seen its core underlying business improve in the most recent quarter, implying that its recent stock price gains are much more believable than U.S. Steel's or Nucor's.

Latin American steel demand to grow up to 5% in 2014 - Alacero

By Samuel Williams - Thursday, January 9, 2014

Steel demand in Latin America will grow up to 5% in 2014, according to regional steel association Alacero.

Demand will increase as the GDP of key economies in the region grow, although the rate of growth is not expected to be "significant," Alacero general director Guillermo Moreno said in an online conference.

Steel demand will be particularly affected by the performance of the automotive, white products and construction industries, he added.

The rate of steel demand growth is currently forecast at 5% for the year, Alacero economist Carmen Silva told the conference, but the figure is likely to be revised down.

UNFAIR TRADE PRACTICES, MEXICO REFORMS

Unfair trade practices, particularly by China, were highlighted as a key threat to Latin America's steel sector, with steelmakers forced to compete "not with similar companies in other countries by with the Chinese state," Moreno added.

Reforms by Mexico's government, including in energy and taxes, are likely to have a "positive impact" on the steel industry in the country by boosting economic activity and, therefore, steel consumption, regional secretary Salvador Quesada Salinas told the conference.

The online conference was held to launch a new report by Alacero on indirect steel trade in Latin America, which warned that imports of steel intensive manufactured products, such as cars, to Latin America have increased steeply in the last decade, weakening the region's industry.

Vale: Undervalued But Risky

Vale (VALE) is the world's largest iron ore producer and second largest nickel producer. The Brazilian company produces approximately ¼ of the global iron ore supply and is the country's largest exporter. Vale operates worldwide and employs more than 145,000 people.

The company published very good 3Q13 results and YE results should be pretty good too thanks to rising iron ore prices due to robust steel production in China.

Currently trading at approximately $14, the shares might then appear undervalued.

However a likely slowdown in the iron ore demand from China and the impact of the Brazilian government on Vale's management and results strongly raise the company's risk profile.

This article will focus on several keys to understand Vale's operating framework for the upcoming years and provide an indicative DCF.

The end of 2013 provided more visibility on Vale's future performance

- A positive tax discount that should boost the share price at short term

Vale agreed to pay $9.61 billion in taxes on profit from overseas operations to the Brazilian Government after a discount (the previous estimated amount was $19.4 billion). I believe that the cash impact on Vale's 2013 profits should be about $2.9billion as 27% of the amount is already due this month.

The outcome of the issue is very positive for Vale and should impact positively the share price. However it highlights again the impact of the Brazilian Government on the business, which is to me one of the main risk drivers at the short and medium term.

According to the company, the tax rate should be about 23/25% in the upcoming years (compared with 18% in recent years), which should affect negatively the FCFs.
