According to sector analysts, Severstal remained the most popular Russian steel stock at the end of 2013. In 2013, upgrades of analysts’ recommendations and target prices were driven by successful cost-cutting, efficiency improvement in the steel and mining segments, the growing results of SNA and increasing share of high value-added products. According to analysts’ comments and reports, Severstal still has growth potential despite the challenging market environment. Key investment bank analysts emphasise in their reports that Severstal should be able to deliver more visible improvements on the operational level, as a result of the company’s focus on operational efficiency, free cash flow and the implementation of cost-saving measures across all divisions.

Investors and analysts appreciated Severstal’s Capital Markets Day which was held in London on November 14, 2013. According to investor feedback, the presentations had sufficient detail and a good level of disclosure and there weren’t any subjects or particular detail missing from them. The speeches themselves were clear and straightforward. Most of those who attended Severstal’s Capital Markets Day found it good that when presenting at the CMD the Company considers both debt holders and share holders. Analysts noted in their post CMD reports that the Company was clearly developing the right strategy going forward.

Severstal exhibits the highest daily trade volume among its key Russian peers which reflects the company’s strong liquidity position. Severstal’s GDRs average daily turnover at LSE was almost US$12 million while average daily turnover at Moscow Exchange (MICEX) exceeded 452 million roubles in 2013 (approximately US$13 million).
