No. 3 - No Longer Stocks of Steel?

Surging demand for global infrastructure has made steel stocks the poster child for this bull market. U.S. Steel (X) has surged more than 400% in the last 5 years.

But today, Goldman Sachs (GS) downgraded the sector citing slowing demand. Have steel stocks gotten too hot?



Eric Bolling says steel had a tremendous run. He adds that he read the Goldman report which said summer will see a downturn, but Q3 and Q4 will be okay.

Eric suggests this might present a buying opportunity and adds Goldman Sachs likes Nucor (NUE) through the Summer. Eric adds POSCO (PKX) and Cleveland-Cliffs (CLF) both continue to perform well.

Guy Adami adds it’s just a seasonal downturn. And he explains the Goldman analyst has been spot on in the space. Right now, he too is cautious on steel.
