5, down 4 each year.

6%; Platts 62% iron ore index 91 during the same period.

$ 4, up about 30 a year.


The spread between the purchase and sale of steel products narrowed.

In addition, Q1 plate prices were sluggish, and steel prices fell month-on-month. Although the initial steel prices in Q2 suffered a slight increase due to the support of raw material prices and the country’s reduction of fees and taxes, the prices of steel released after 6 months fell.

In the auto market, Q2 global auto sales were 2311.

The hot rolling project started on May 9, the cold rolling project started on June 11, and the sintering project started on June 17.

The project is planned to be put into production in 2021, and the supplementary capacity it provides will be very considerable, that is, the annual output of hot metal 1225 is called molten steel 1252.

8 additives, 1081 additives for steel.The Zhanjiang blast furnace production project is one of the company’s multi-manufacturing base projects. The smooth progress to completion means that the company can further improve the management capabilities of multi-manufacturing bases and explore synergies to maintain stable production capacity, control costs, and effectively hedge against changes in the internal and external operating environment.Potential risks.

In addition, the company is promoting the implementation of overseas 青岛夜网 full-process steel base projects, and has initially locked the target project group, and strives to achieve a breakthrough in the layout of overseas steel manufacturing bases within 3 years.

The internationalization of the company started early and was regarded as the only way for Baowu to develop.

At present, the domestic steel industry has entered a long period of de-capacity stage, and competition has gradually intensified. The smooth progress of overseas layout will help the company to continue to expand production capacity under the domestic supply side and environmental protection control.


Investment suggestion The company is an industry leader, its profitability is higher than the industry average, and its effective cost control, product upgrade policy and steady advancement of multiple production bases will 杭州桑拿网 enhance the company’s cyclical resistance.

96x / 9.

25x with a “cautious recommendation” rating.


Risk warnings 1) The demand for steel is less than expected; 2) The environmental protection control at each base is less than expected.
