24/7 Wall St. has put together a preview of major metal companies reporting their earnings this week. Considering the new Trump administration has been positive for industrials, we could expect to see some upside in this industry.
Credit Suisse recently issued a report on the metal and mining industries taking a relatively positive stance on where they stand to go from here.
We have included the consensus estimates from Thomson Reuters, as well as a recent trading history and consensus analyst price target.
AK Steel Holding Corp. (NYSE: AKS) reports its fourth-quarter earnings on Tuesday. The consensus estimates call for $0.08 in earnings per share (EPS) and $1.41 billion in revenue.

Also on Tuesday, Alcoa Corp. (NYSE: AA) is scheduled to release its fourth-quarter financial results. Analysts are forecasting $0.19 in EPS and $2.46 billion in revenue.
