After what as been a weak last 4-5 days in the materials sector, its interesting to see that U.S. Steel (X) closed at recent highs. Some bullish news from the demand in China helped. Now X did trade at around $50 back in September so that will be the next resistance area before we have a major breakout. Its important to remember that X traded at $180 last year so its still some 60% below that high.
X is one of our larger holdings in the Growth Portfolio.
