  • Nucor Issues Q1 Guidance Below Wall Street Views (NUE)

    Steel products maker Nucor Corporation (NUE) reported on Thursday its guidance for the first quarter of 2013, which is below Wall Street consensus estimates. The Charlotte, North Carolina-based company said it expects to earn between 20 cents and 25 cents per share in the first quarter. This is much lower than the 46 cents per share the company earned in the first quarter of 2012. Wall Street analysts are expecting earnings of 37 cents per share for Nucor in the first quarter. In the fourth quarter earnings report, the company did say that they "currently expect to see first quarter 2013 earnings below our results in the fourth quarter of 2012." In the fourth quarter NUE earned 43 cents per share. A reason for the disappointing guidance, according to Nucor, is that the steel mill segment of the company has not seen the seasonal improvement that this quarter normally brings. Furthermore, import levels and economic and political uncertainty continue to plague the company's business. However, the company says it remains cautiously optimistic going forward as non-residential construction continues to improve from historic lows, although at a slow pace. Nucor shares were down 57 cents, or -1.24%, during Thursday morning trading. The stock is up +5.06% over the past twelve months. The Bottom Line Shares of Nucor Corp (NUE) have a dividend yield of 3.20% based on Thursday's intraday trading price of $45.97 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $1.47 per share.
