ArcelorMittal (ADR) (MT) Surges On Reports That EU Anti-Dumping Probe May Widen

Page 1 of 2

ArcelorMittal SA (ADR) (NYSE:MT) shares are 7.9% higher this morning after Bloomberg reported that some analysts are speculating that the European Commission will extend its anti-dumping probe on imports of some forms of hot-rolled coil to additional countries other than China. Analysts at RBC Capital Markets cited reports that claim other countries such as Iran, Ukraine, Brazil, Russia, and Turkey could be probed too. If the probe is indeed true, the event could improve sentiment and send steel product prices higher. ArcelorMittal SA (ADR) (NYSE:MT), as the largest steel maker in the world, would clearly be one of the largest beneficiaries of improving steel prices.

ArcelorMittal (ADR) (NYSE:MT) investors should pay attention to an increase in hedge fund interest lately. At the end of the first quarter, a total of 21 of the hedge funds tracked by Insider Monkey were bullish on this stock, a 31% jump from the end of the previous quarter.
