Five Steel Stocks Hedge Funds Love The Most

Just as the market seemed to be stabilizing after the recent correction, plans to impose import tariffs on steel and aluminum have pushed them back inTO turmoil. The market experienceD a minor sell-off as investors assessed the possibility of a trade war that would ensue should US trade partners chose to retaliate. If you open any standard economics book, you would find out that tariffs lead a decrease in welfare of the consumers. The loss in consumer surplus is divided into three categories: the state’s tax revenue, deadweight loss and an increase in producer surplus. The increase in producer surplus is what interests us more in this case and it’s the US steel producers that will reap the benefits of tariffs, should the US administration instate them. So if you want to add one or two steel companies to your portfolio, we recommend that you take into account what companies professional investors were betting on even before tariffs were announced.
