President-Elect Trump’s new policies to bring back manufacturing jobs are fueling the steel industry to grow at unprecedented rate. Another policy that will help grow the industry is updates on infrastructure. Trump also plans on raising tariffs on steel imports from China because they’ve been illegally dumping their metals. China realized a loopwhole in which they move their metals through Vietnamese channels. These reasons are creating a perfect storm for the steel industry and this shift directly correlates to the stock price increase recently. As long as the policies are set in place by the new President and Chinese steel is limited in the United States, all of the steel companies, AKS included, will benefit and prosper.
