SMU Community Chat with Timna Tanners of Bank of America

Guests: Timna Tanners

Steel Market Update is pleased to announce that we will re-start our SMU Community Chat Webinar series on Wednesday, Oct. 7, at 11 a.m. ET. Our speaker will be Timna Tanners, Metals and Mining Analyst at Bank of America and the owner of the “Steelmageddon” terminology. Joining Timna will be John Packard, President & CEO of Steel Market Update.

The SMU Community Chat Webinars are free to anyone who would like to attend. The purpose of the webinars is to keep the greater steel community informed of ongoing issues that are, or will, affect the steel industry in the coming days, weeks or months.

This webinar will concentrate on the consolidation of the integrated steel producers with Cleveland-Cliffs announcing the acquisition of the ArcelorMittal USA steel mills and processing facilities in the United States (with the exception of AM/NS Calvert). When combined with AK Steel, the new Cliffs will be the largest flat rolled steel producer in North America.

Timna will also discuss her views on steel prices and how soon she anticipates her Steelmageddon theory as becoming a reality.
