What to do about Nucor - May 26 2008 9:30PM

 May 26, 2008 09:29 PM

Nucor Corporation and its subsidiaries engage in the manufacture and sale of steel and steel products in North America. NUE is a tough stock to analyze in my opinion.  It is in one of the leading industries in a horrible market, i.e. steel, yet its broken its longer term uptrend.  The company recently announced another common stock offering for $74/share which may have contributed to recent action and high volume trading.  Trading  purely on technicals, I would say stay away.  Then again this could be a decent pullback in a leading stock. Nothing is absolute, so I think if NUE goes 5-10% lower, I think I would dip my toe in the water and see what shakes out.   What are your thoughts on NUE?
