AK Steel gains on Q2 earnings beat

AK Steel (NASDAQ: AKS) reported 17% growth in second-quarter earnings to 21 cents per share, compared to 5 cents per share projected by the street. The better-than-expected earnings sent AKS stock up 2.3%.

Revenues came in at $1.68 billion, down 4% year-over-year and lower than the street view of $1.74 billion. The decrease was primarily due to lower shipments to the automotive market, as expected, and lower spot market selling prices.

The company’s adjusted EBITDA was $151.5 million, or 9.0% of net sales.
