X stock’ Update

United States Steel Corporation released outlook for the fourth quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2021 is estimated to be about $1.65 billion. The Company has bought back about $100 million in common shares so far this quarter. The Company’s $300 million stock repurchase authorization had roughly $200 million left as of December 16, 2021.

The firm appears to be running at record levels of safety, quality, and dependability, according to the company’s President and CEO, David B. Burritt. They are closing up 2021 on a high note, and they anticipate sustained solid success in 2022 and beyond. They’ve altered the financial sheet this year, increased direct distributions to investors, and are on track to achieve the Best for All vision sooner.

In comparison to rivals with larger spot exposure, their agreements are resetting much higher next year, giving stronger earnings consistency. In addition, they expect the steel business super cycle will persist as new demand drivers emerge. Their fourth-quarter projection points to another good quarter, but it also includes a brief decrease in order entry activity, which they believe is due to regular seasonal year-end buying activity.

He further added,

They are optimistic for next year, and will stay adaptable to ensure that they continue to satisfy their clients’ expectations as they enter the New Year. With strong free cash flow, adequate liquidity to support strategic initiatives, and more potential to improve their capital allocation objectives, 2022 should be another fantastic year for U. S. Steel. The future of US Steel is bright, and he is certain that their finest days are yet to come.
