Bovenstaande quote van Candell is wel een hele mooie indicator. Ooit moeten de billen bloot !

Misschien voor de mensen die het interesseert een uitleg hier over ...

Short Interest
Short interest is the total number of shares of a particular stock that have been sold short by investors but have not yet been covered or closed out. This can be expressed as a number or as a percentage.

When expressed as a percentage, short interest is the number of shorted shares divided by the number of shares outstanding. For example, a stock with 1.5 million shares sold short and 10 million shares outstanding has a short interest of 15% (1.5 million/10 million = 15%).

Most stock exchanges track the short interest in each stock and issue reports at month's end. These reports are great for traders because by showing what short sellers are doing, they allow investors to gauge overall market sentiment surrounding a particular stock. Alternatively, most exchanges provide an online tool to calculate short interest for a particular security.

Nippon Steel settles Q4 semi-soft coking coal at $105.50/mt, up $0.50 from Q3Singapore (Platts)--4Oct2013/549 am EDT/949 GMT




Japan's largest steelmaker Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal on Thursday settled its first semi-soft coking coal contract for the fourth quarter with Australian miners at $105.50/mt FOB Australia, up $0.50 from Q3, market sources in Singapore, Australia and Japan said Friday.

A Tokyo spokesman for Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal said the company did not comment on individual contracts for raw materials procurement.

The price applies to higher quality semi-soft coking coal from the Hunter Valley in New South Wales, from producers such as Glencore Xstrata and Rio Tinto.

Stakingen metaalbedrijven gaan door

Gepubliceerd op 4 okt 2013 om 15:26 | Views: 560


DEN HAAG (AFN) - Werknemers in de metalsector zullen maandag opnieuw het werk neerleggen voor een betere cao. Het gaat om honderden vliegtuigbouwers, installateurs, kabelaars, scheepsbouwers en andere metaalwerkers, laat FNV Metaal weten.

Vrijdag voerden ruim 900 metaalwerkers actie bij onder meer de bedrijven Ardagh, Rotocoat, Shipdock en Royal de Boer. De actievoerders willen de werkgevers op die manier zover krijgen, dat zij alsnog de eisen voor onder meer een hoger loon en meer invloed op de werktijden honoreren.

De cao-onderhandelingen in de klein- en grootmetaal liepen in juni stuk. De twee cao's gelden samen voor bijna een half miljoen mensen. De vakbonden organiseren sinds 20 september op maan- en vrijdagen werkonderbrekingen. Dat gebeurt steeds in andere regio's, branches en bij andere bedrijven.

Op gang

Het lijkt er vooralsnog niet op dat er snel weer onderhandelingen op gang komen. Een afgelopen maandag door de ondernemersorganisatie FME-CWM verstuurde uitnodiging om het overleg te hervatten, is door de bonden van de hand gewezen. FME-CWM, de organisatie van werkgevers in het grootmetaal, gaat zich beraden op de weigering van de bonden, zei een woordvoerder vrijdag.

Volgens FNV Metaal wilde FME-CWM met een schone lei beginnen. ,,Bizar, omdat het een ontkenning is van de wensen die de werknemers willen realiseren en waar ze voor in staking zijn gegaan'', aldus bestuurder Jacqie van Stigt.

Ook met de werkgevers in de kleinmetaal is sinds het stuklopen van de gesprekken in juni niet meer aan de onderhandelingstafel gesproken.

Steel Ministry seeks land for ultra mega projects in India

Economic Times reported that the Steel Ministry has asked states to come up with land and ore availability plans for setting up ultra mega projects, amidst PMO's thrust on trebling India's steel output to 300 million tonne by 2025.

Mr Beni Prasad Verma steel minister said that "Prime Minister Mr Manmohan Singh has recently convened a meeting on ultra mega steel projects. We have been given guidelines for new plants. Accordingly, we have asked states to provide land and iron ore availability for such projects."

Mr Verma said the PMO has emphasized that Steel Ministry should coordinate with mineral rich states for such projects as iron ore is a key steel making raw material.

Mr Verma's comment comes in the wake of a PM headed panel National Manufacturing Competitiveness Council, entrusting country's top iron ore miner NMDC with the task of creating the basic infrastructure for the first ultra mega steel plant with 12 million tonne annual capacity.

NMDC would procure land, get clearances like environment and forest approvals, ensure raw material linkage among other things.

The plan, which is aimed at removing hurdles that private sector steel makers face in creating additional capacity, is a step in the direction to achieve 300 MT capacity by 2025 a target recently set by the Prime Minister led panel.

It is also expected to help India regain its image of an investment friendly country against a backdrop of South Korean Posco and world's largest steel maker ArcelorMittal in July scrapping their big-ticket USD 18 million investment plans citing inordinate delays in getting clearances.

Besides, ArcelorMittal, POSCO and Monnet Ispat pull outs, at least 85 MT capacity creation has been delayed for want of water, environment and forest clearances. Non availability of the land is the primary hurdle though.

Japan 2013 crude steel output could hit 5 year high - METI

Reuters reported that a rush to build homes ahead of a sales tax hike next year and a jump in government infrastructure spending have helped boost steel demand in Japan, driving production increases and likely leading to crude steel output hitting a five year high this year.

Rising demand for the alloy and a lower currency have benefited top Japanese steelmaker Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp and its smaller rivals including JFE Holdings Inc helping steel mills boost their earnings and their share prices.

Japan's crude steel output for calendar 2013 is projected to rise 3.1 percent from a year ago to 110.56 million tonnes, the country's trade and industry ministry said on Tuesday, citing an industry survey. The last year when output was higher was in 2008 when Japan produced 118.74 million tonnes of crude steel.

Mr Ryuichi Yamashita director of iron & steel division at the ministry told reporters that "Steel demand is solid as construction projects including rebuilding works of the north-eastern area hit by the March 2011 earthquake are increasing. Rush in demand for building houses and apartments ahead of a sales tax hike is another reason why steel demand is strong."

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Tuesday the government will raise Japan's sales tax rate in April to 8 percent from the current 5% as planned.

Infrastructure spending tops Abe's economic agenda alongside nudging the central bank into more aggressive steps to end deflation. Since coming to power last December, Abe has earmarked at least JPY 10 trillion (USD 101.91 billion) for new infrastructure and upgrades.

Japanese steelmakers are also stepping up production as the weaker yen helped manufacturers regain competitiveness to export their products.

LONDON--Steel titan ArcelorMittal (MT, MT.AE, MT.FR) and Algerian-stated-owned company Sider will boost steel production at their jointly owned Annaba steel plant to capitalize on rising steel demand in Algeria as auto makers open new factories.

ArcelorMittal and Sider said Monday they have signed an agreement to invest $763 million to more than double Annaba's steel production capacity to 2.2 million metric tons a year by 2017. The companies will also invest in the steel plant's associated Ouenza and Boukhadra mines which provide iron ore, a key steel making raw ingredient, to the plant.

The deal will see ArcelorMittal reduce its holdings in the steel plant and associated mines to 49% while Sider will boost its ownership to 51%. ArcelorMittal previously had a 70% stake in the two mines and steel plant. The investment plan will be funded with equity contributions from both companies and bank financing.

The investment is in line with the Algerian government's strategy to become self-sufficient in steel production given rising steel demand from car manufacturers that are moving to North Africa and building new assembly plants to take advantage of growing vehicle demand there.

French car maker Renault SA (RNO.FR) last year announced plans to build a car assembly plant in Algeria, its second in north Africa following the construction of a greenfield facility in Morocco that started production last year.

Annaba is the largest integrated steel plant in the Maghreb region. It produces hot and cold rolled steel, used to make cars and home appliances, and long steel products, which are used in construction. The plant has two captive iron-ore mines and a dedicated port that is linked by rail.

The two shareholders will invest in the blast furnace relining, the modernization of the sinter plant, and the steel plant and rolling mills at Annaba. The two shareholders are also investing in the construction of a new electric arc furnace and rolling mill for rebar and wire rod steel. The rolling mill will have a production capacity of 1 million tons a year.

ArcelorMittal tekent strategische overeenkomst met Algerijns staatsbedrijf


AMSTERDAM (Dow Jones)--ArcelorMittal (MT.AE) en het Algerijnse staatsbedrijf Sider hebben een strategische overeenkomst getekend die onder meer een investeringsplan omvat voor een staalfabriek en mijnen.

Volgens de overeenkomst wordt $763 miljoen gestoken in de staalfabriek in Annaba en de mijnen in Ouenza en Boukhadra. De productie van de fabriek moet hierdoor toenemen van 1 miljoen ton tot 2,2 miljoen ton per jaar in 2017.

Door de overeenkomst zal het belang van ArcelorMittal in ArcelorMittal Annaba en ArcelorMittal Tebessa afnemen tot 49%. De Algerijnse Staat houdt de overige 51%. De investeringen worden betaald uit bijdragen van beide aandeelhouders en bankfinanciering, aldus ArcelorMittal in het persbericht.

"Dit plan stelt de toekomst voor de lange termijn veilig voor staalproductie in Annaba en mijnbouw in Tebessa", stelt het staalconcern.

'Vraag naar staal neemt toe'

Gepubliceerd op 7 okt 2013 om 16:17 | Views: 1

ArcelorMittal16:04

EUR 10,45+0,03(+0,29%)

LONDEN (AFN) - De vraag naar staal zal dit jaar met 3,1 procent toenemen, en volgend jaar met 3,3 procent. Dat voorspelde de World Steel Association (WSA) maandag in een kortetermijnprognose. In 2012 groeide de wereldwijde vraag naar staal met 2 procent.

Volgens de organisatie zijn de belangrijkste risico's voor de vraag naar staal, de crisis in de eurozone en een harde landing van de Chinese economie, de afgelopen maanden gestabiliseerd. Wel wordt er daarbij op gewezen dat ,,de correctie in de eurozone zwaarder was dan eerder voorzien'' en de omstandigheden voor de industrie als geheel ,,uitdagend en onzeker'' blijven.

De economische verbetering in de wereld blijft volgens de staalvereniging dit jaar wel aanhouden, hoewel grote economieën als India en Brazilië wat betreft de vraag naar staal niet presteren zoals gehoopt. ,,Uitzondering is China, daar groeit de vraag waarschijnlijk met 6 procent'', aldus de WSA. In 2012 was dat nog 2,9 procent.

In 2014 zal de Chinese vraag naar staal overigens weer terugvallen, aldus de WSA, omdat grote investeringen waarschijnlijk uitblijven door overheidsbeperkingen. De branchevereniging rekent voor volgend jaar op een groei van de vraag in China met 3 procent.

Nog geen toenadering in metaalconflict

Gepubliceerd op 7 okt 2013 om 18:06 | Views: 0


UTRECHT (AFN) - In het conflict over een nieuwe cao voor de metaalsector is nog altijd geen sprake van toenadering tussen werkgevers en vakbonden. Dat zei een woordvoerder van FNV Metaal maandag.

De gezamenlijke vakbonden gaan door met stakingen en werkonderbrekingen, die sinds 20 september steeds op maandag en vrijdag worden georganiseerd. Daarbij zijn steeds andere regio's, branches en bedrijven aan de beurt.

Maandag kwamen volgens opgave van de vakbonden circa 1200 metaalwerkers in actie, onder meer bij bedrijven in Delfzijl en Papendrecht.

De cao-onderhandelingen voor de groot- en kleinmetaal, waarin bijna een half miljoen mensen werkzaam zijn, liepen van de zomer stuk op de looneis en andere zaken die de bonden willen realiseren.

ArcelorMittal Ostrava announces US$53m revamp of its steel shop


ArcelorMittal Ostrava is revamping the continuous casting machine (CCM) in its steel shop. The aim of the project, worth a billion crowns (US$53m) is to improve the quality of steel as well as to produce new high value added products. The revamp will help ArcelorMittal Ostrava to export to pipe manufacturers outside Europe, catering to the growing oil and gas exploration industry. The project will be completed at the end of 2013.

“We are happy that in spite of the prolonged crisis we could invest in this revamp. The new products and a better quality will improve our product portfolio and will help us to face competition in the market. This investment will have a positive influence on our exports, which comprises approximately 50 per cent of our output nowadays,” said Tapas Rajderkar, CEO and chairman of the board of directors of ArcelorMittal Ostrava.

For more than 60 years, the steel shop has been the cornerstone of the Ostrava plant. Liquid steel is produced in three tandem furnaces. It is then processed in ladle furnaces and continuously cast into billets and slabs. The first continuous casting facility (CCM1) that was installed in the steel shop, commissioned in 1993, is now being revamped.

The modernisation of CCM1 will enable the company to cast round billets for the manufacturing of seamless pipes with diameter of up to 400 mm, compared with the current maximum diameter of 210 mm. The new formats will be used for the manufacture of high quality products, notably seamless pipes produced by new rolling technologies. The production of square billets for the company's own rolling mills will be retained.

Part of the new technology will be a vacuum degasser. The process of degassing will reduce the contents of undesirable gases and elements in steel, so the revamped facility will be producing steel of considerably better quality parameters than before. “The steel will meet demanding requirements for very low levels of hydrogen and sulphur, which is important for pipes used in high-acidity and high-pressure environments, for example for extraction of oil or transport of acid media,” explained Rajderkar.

The CCM revamp including the construction of the vacuum degasser will be completed in November 2013. The revamped steel shop will not have any adverse effect on the company's environmental footprint. The investment plan has obtained both EIA approval as well as an integrated pollution prevention and control (IPPS) permit from the regional authority. The newly installed equipment will conform to the best available technique requirements. The vacuum degasser will be equipped with a bag filter with 99 per cent efficiency.

ArcelorMittal Ostrava a.s. is the largest steelmaker in the Czech Republic and part of the world’s largest steel and mining group ArcelorMittal. It has an annual production capacity of 3 million tonnes of steel. Besides the Czech market, the company sells its products to more than 40 countries around the world. ArcelorMittal Ostrava and its subsidiaries employ more than 7500 people. Average income of its employees amounted to 34,213 CZK in 2012. ArcelorMittal Ostrava produces iron and steel in compliance with all environmental legislation. It already conforms to the EU best available techniques (BAT) emission limits that will come into force in 2016. The sole shareholder is ArcelorMittal Holdings A.G..

worldsteel releases Short Range Outlook for 2013 & 2014

The World Steel Association released its Short Range Outlook for 2013 and 2014.

worldsteel forecasts that global apparent steel use will increase by 3.1% to 1,475 million tonnes in 2013 following growth of 2.0% in 2012. In 2014, it is forecast that world steel demand will grow further by 3.3% and will reach 1,523 million tonnes.

worldsteel Economics Committee Mr Hans Jürgen Kerkhoff said “The key risks in the global economy - the eurozone crisis and a hard landing for the Chinese economy - which we identified in our last SRO issued in April, have continued to stabilise through the past six months. Our underlying assumption remains that the US will resolve its fiscal constraint soon. The correction in the eurozone has been more severe than we forecasted but the improvement seen recently is now expected to continue for the rest of 2013. Major emerging economies, particularly India and Brazil have not performed as hoped mainly due to key structural issues. These factors have led to a lower steel demand performance than predicted across the world, with China being the one exception. Steel demand in 2013 is now forecasted to grow in China by 6.0%. Thus, despite steel demand growing by only 0.7% in the rest of the world, total global steel demand will grow by 3.1%.”

He said "In 2014, we expect to see continued recovery in global steel demand with the developed economies overall returning to positive growth. At the same time we expect slower growth in China. With risks within the developed world receding there is some uncertainty emerging from developing countries due to unresolved structural issues, political instability and volatile financial markets. All in all, despite economic conditions for the global steel industry remaining uncertain and challenging, we are forecasting further growth for steel demand in 2014.”

1. China
Following a 2.9% increase in 2012, apparent steel use in China is expected to grow by 6.0% in 2013 to 699.7 million tonnes reflecting the impact of the government’s stimulus measures focused on infrastructure. However, steel demand in 2014 is expected to slow to 3.0% growth as the Chinese government’s efforts to rebalance the economy continue to restrain investment activities.”

2. India
In India, steel demand is expected to grow by 3.4% to 74.0 million tonnes in 2013 following 2.6 % growth in 2012 as high inflation and structural problems are constraining steel using sectors’ activities. In 2014, steel demand is expected to grow by 5.6% helped by accelerated attempts to implement structural reforms.

3. Japan
The economic situation in Japan has improved in 2013 due to government stimulus measures and steel demand is revised up to show 0.1% growth to 64.0 million tonnes. However the outlook for 2014 is less positive with fears surrounding the consequences of a new consumption tax, manufacturing production relocation from Japan and rapidly escalating energy prices. Steel demand is expected to contract by -1.6%.

4. NAFTA
In the US, after growth of 7.8% in 2012 due to generally strong steel using sector activity, apparent steel use in 2013 is forecast to grow by just 0.7% to 96.9 million tonnes. In 2014, steel demand is expected to increase by 3.0%, aided by the improving global economy and activities in the automotive, energy and residential construction sectors. For NAFTA as a whole, apparent steel use will grow by 0.2% and 3.2% in 2013 and 2014 respectively.

5. Latin America
In Central and South America, apparent steel use is projected to slow to a 2.8% growth in 2013 to 48.5 million tonnes from 3.1% in 2012. The region’s steel demand is forecast to grow by 5.0% to 51.0 million tonnes in 2014. In Brazil, where the economic performance has been slower than expected to-date, modest re-stocking coupled by improving capital investment is expected to bring apparent steel use growth of 3.2% to 26.0 Mt in 2013 and a further growth of 3.8% to 27.0 million tonnes in 2014.

6. EU
In the EU-27, the contraction in steel using sectors continued in 2013 particularly during the first half of the year. Apparent steel use is expected to decline for the second straight year in 2013 by -3.8% to 134.9 million tonnes after falling by -9.5% in 2012. Apparent steel use in Italy and Spain is expected to contract by -8.1% and -4.3% respectively and even in Germany, it is expected to fall by -1.6% in 2013. Signs of stabilization in real steel use in the second half of 2013 bode well for recovery prospects in 2014. However, the pickup in EU27 is expected to remain weak with steel demand increasing only by 2.1% in 2014 to 137.8 Mt.

7. CIS
Despite contracting steel demand in Ukraine, apparent steel use in the CIS region is projected to grow by 3.0% reaching 58.9 million tonnes in 2013 due to the pickup in Russia. In Russia, public non-residential construction and the introduction of automotive stimulus measures will contribute to steel demand growth of 3.8% to 43.6 million tonnes in 2013. Russia’s steel demand is expected to grow further by 4.6% to 45.6 Mt in 2014 aided by the improving external environment, particularly in Europe.

8. MENA
In the MENA region, steel demand is expected to grow by only 1.7% to 64.3 million tonnes in 2013 after 2.2% growth in 2012. The slowdown is due to the continued political instability that has disrupted economic activities. In 2014, steel demand in the region is expected to grow by 7.3% to reach 69.0 Mt aided by resumption of investment projects and governments’ efforts to quell social unrest."

The projections forecast by worldsteel consider both real and apparent steel use. Apparent steel use reflects the deliveries of steel to the marketplace from the domestic steel producers as well as from importers. This differs from real steel use, which takes into account steel delivered to or drawn from inventories.

World 2012 scrap consumption totals 570 million tonne - BIR

According to a survey by the Bureau of International Recycling, the world's ferrous scrap consumption totaled 570 million tonnes in calendar 2012 for an all-time high, moving sideways from a year ago. Meanwhile, the world's crude steel production totaled 1,547 million tons in calendar 2012, up 1.2% from the year before. As a result, the ratio of the world's ferrous scrap consumption to its crude steel production stood at 36.8% in calendar 2012, down 0.5% from the previous year. BIR is a global recycling industry organization with headquarters in Brussels, Belgium.

The following are the findings of the BIR survey.

Steelmakers' scrap purchases: 370 million tonnes
Of the world's ferrous scrap consumption of 570 million tonnes, ferrous scrap purchased by steelmakers accounted for 370 million tonnes or 64.9%, no change from a year ago, and home arising material 200 million tons or 35.1%, no change.

Of the purchased ferrous scrap, obsolete scrap accounted for 250 million tonnes or 67.6%, and processed scrap 120 million tonnes or 32.4%.

EU27 nations' scrap consumption: 94.1 million tonnes
