U.S. Steel Corp. (NYSE:X) was downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Cowen, which lowered its price target to 20 from 24. That compares with the consensus target of 28.18. The analysts noted the move is based on their view that iron ore and US HRC prices are poised to move lower. US Steel is heavily exposed to HRC spot market movements, in addition to being vertically integrated, and unable to benefit from a move lower in iron ore prices. The 52-wk trading range is 16.17 – 41.83.
