When should you invest in the steel sector?

Steel stocks are usually risker as their fortunes are prone to economic booms and busts. For this reason, they are called cyclical stocks. Cyclical stocks do well when the economy is doing well and vice versa.

How should you value steel companies?

Investing in stocks requires careful analysis of financial data to find out a company's true worth. However, an easier way to find out about a company's performance is to look at its financial ratios.

Two commonly used financial ratios used in the valuation of stocks are -

Price to Earnings Ratio (P/E) - It compares the company's stock price with its earnings per share. The higher the P/E ratio, the more expensive the stock.

To find stocks with favorable P/E Ratios, check out our list of steel stocks according to their P/E Ratios.

Do keep in mind that in case of cyclical stocks like steel stocks, sometimes a lower P/E ratio may not signal a cheap could among other thing be signalling peak earnings which are usually seen at the top of the steel sector cycle.

Price to Book Value Ratio (P/BV) - It compares a firm's market capitalization to its book value. A high P/BV indicates markets believe the company's assets to be undervalued and vice versa.

To find stocks with favourable P/BV Ratios, check out our list of steel stocks according to their P/BV Ratios.
