United States Steel Corporation (X)
X has had stellar performance over the last 5 years. The current recession will stifle this performance as steel prices remain low due to oversupply and increased competition from foreign steel mills. X may benefit from stimulus packages being passed in the United States, Asia, and Europe which may need steel for infrastructure projects. The first quarter of 2009 is expected to show a decline in sales and profits from the previous quarter (Q4 2008).
