Buffett wants to buy more POSCO stock - POSCO

The South Korean miner says Buffett had indicated he wanted to buy more POSCO stock

Posted: Tuesday , 19 Jan 2010

SEOUL (Reuters) -

South Korea's POSCO (005490.KS) said on Tuesday U.S. investor Warren Buffett, whose investment vehicle owns 4.5 percent of the world's No.4 steelmaker, had indicated he wanted to buy more POSCO stocks.

POSCO said in a statement that the U.S. billionaire said he wanted to own more POSCO stocks after missing the opportunity to buy them on dips last year when the global financial crisis depressed equity asset values.

The comments were made while POSCO chief executive Chung Joon-yang visited Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (BRKa.N) (BRKb.N) headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska on Monday, POSCO said.

Shares in POSCO, worth $46 billion, have enjoyed steady recovery momentum since last year, more than doubling from a 2009 low in March to hit a two-year high of 633,000 won last week.

The shares were trading up 1.2 percent at 605,000 won as of 0359 GMT, versus a 0.25% gain in the broader market .

South Korea's Posco is one of the world's most profitable steelmakers. It produces 28 million tons of steel products per year, enough to manufacture 100,000 compact cars, and exports its steel products to more than 60 countries.

Posco's stock is now trading at about $136, down from its record of $201. That's nearly a 33% drop.

Some say Posco's earnings will suffer since iron ore prices are headed much higher. That would increase the cost of producing steel. But Posco is probably going to be able to pass much of those cost increases on to the end user. So I suggest looking at this one.
