E Daily Stock Pick: Aperam SA

I'm now looking for a third basic materials sector representative for my new Ivy portfolio.

That materials sector has thirteen industries all related to mining, making, and delivering essential commodities. They are: agricultural inputs; aluminum; building materials; chemicals; coal; copper; industrial metals; gold; paper; silver; specialty chemicals; steel.

Today I'm reviewing a mid-cap steel company, named Aperam SA  Its trading ticker symbol is APEMY.

Aperam S.A., and subsidiaries, produce and sell stainless and specialty steel products worldwide.

The company operates through three segments: Stainless & Electrical Steel; Services & Solutions; and Alloys & Specialties.

It offers stainless steel and electrical steel products, including grain oriented, non-grain oriented, and non-grain oriented semi-processed steel products.

The company is also involved in the distribution operations; and the provision of value added and customized steel solutions.

In addition, it designs, produces, and transforms nickel alloys and other specific stainless steels in various forms, such as bars, semis, cold-rolled strips, wire and wire rods, and plates.

The company serves customers in aerospace, automotive, catering, construction, household appliances and electrical engineering, industrial processes, medical, and oil and gas industries.

It distributes its products through a network of service centers, transformation facilities, and sales offices.

Aperam S.A. was incorporated in 2010 and is headquartered in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg.

I use three key data points to gauge the value of any dividend equity like Aperam SA:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Besides those three, several other keys will finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest.

Those first three primary keys, however, best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money.


Aperam's price per share closed at $28.57 yesterday. A year ago its price was $39.88. So price dropped $11.31 per share last year, or over 28%.
