Nucor has a history of continuous innovation technologically and managerially. They are committed to high-quality steel products at competitive prices. Even during the Great Recession Nucor still boasted strong financials. I believe NUE is positioned to rebound in a major way when home construction improves. Recent calculations suggest higher than expected seasonal improvement, which should provide an upward trend for share price and earnings.
NUE is a very well managed company with a decentralized management structure that encourages freedom to introduce new idea within the employee base which ultimately boosts morale. Simply put, Nucor is the best run company in its industry. They keep their costs low, have happy employees and great management.
Just for this simple that Nucor is the largest United States steelmaker and benefits from being the big boss with the hot sauce! I highly suggest that you attend tomorrow's Nucor stockholder's web cast.
