SMU Fair Value Model Has HRC Spot Pricing Below Fair Value for 3rd Week

Written by John Packard

This week, the SMU Fair Value HRC (hot rolled coil) Model has spot HRC pricing below Fair Value for the third consecutive week after rising above the Fair Value price in the week of February 8th. This is due to the SMU average spot HRC index decreasing $10 per ton last week to $600 per ton and scrap inputs remaining the same. The Fair Value model now shows HRC prices $16 below the estimated Fair Value price.

As a reminder, the Fair Value HRC Model below came from the SMU acquisition of Steel Reality. The graph below demonstrates the relationship between scraps inputs creating an estimated “Fair Value” for HRC versus the actual spot price.
