United States Steel still declining and yet to find support
- US Steel is a value and momentum stock with a PE of 1.16

United States Steel Corporation (NYSE:X) attempted to set support at $24 three weeks ago. The stock has since tested the support. The share is now trading at $19.24 as bears press harder. We ask how much lower the stock could fall.
Our analysis shows that the decline in the price of United States Steel Corporation shares is irrational. The company is now trading at a PE of 1.16. Though the company faces competition in the steel industry, earnings remain strong. The decline in the price of shares is therefore not a reflection of the company’s fundamental value.
