Scrap Metal Recycling prices in Goldsboro, NC Scrap remain steady this week.  We remain ready to support Companies and Demolition contractors.  If you from the public, it is Christmas.  Get Christmas cash, come see us.  Time to sell us your scrap metal. 
If you have a Junk Car around, time to sell that.  We raised prices, yet again a few weeks ago, so now copper and steel are up.  As said, the good news is we think steel prices could remain steady for a couple of months.  As discussed, due to soft demand from China, Turkey and the US is doing well, but not great.  Copper has moved up, and then down this week just as it did last two weeks, so we now are paying great prices. As said, it is not clear what will happen the rest of the year.  We are hearing things could go down a bit more over the next months, but sorry we do not know. It is even possible that prices could go up!  Yes, for items like copper, you can actually go to websites like and watch the price of copper change every few seconds during the week.  Steel as many know usually changes once a month, but there is even no certainty to that.  As we wrote, there have been some articles that copper could go down next year.

Slow news week: China continues to try and crack down on shadow lending, this time proposing a nationwide real-estate registration system that would allow a property tax to be instituted as a way to control speculation.  Housing prices in 100 cities on average rose 11.5% In December from a year ago, while cities like Shanghai and Beijing rose 15.6% and 28.3% respectively.   Meanwhile the PBOC and CBRC have done little since neither banking authority has clearly defined authority over shadow lending.


While Chinese GDP growth may not be setting the world on fire, copper cathode has been making its way to China according to industry experts, as LME warehouse stocks have fallen 50% since June.  Since a 3 month low reached in November, copper prices have risen 7.1% on Comex, driven by hedge funds and other money managers.  Some portfolio managers believe Chinese manufacturing will keep expanding since “we’re seeing a bit of a manufacturing revival” according to one portfolio manager.   Even aluminum appears to be defying gravity as it closed the week higher even though he Euro closed lower at $1.3536 on Friday after news that the CPI slowed to .8% in December, way below the ECB target of 2%, stoking talk of deflation.


The Fed took its first step into looking at bank owned commodity businesses and will give them 2 months to provide input on how it should proceed before considering action.   Concern has been growing that banks are using metals warehouses, oil barges and power plants to influence the flow of commodities as well as prices.  Officials are struggling with exactly how broad and aggressive any new restrictions should be and what legal authority the central bank should have.


Bank earnings last week showed the 6 largest banks earned $76 billion in 2013, just $6 billion shy of the all-time high achieved in 2006. Retailers on the other hand only saw half the traffic they did just 3 years ago., despite deep discounts to lure shoppers.  JC Penny announced it would close 33 stores and eliminate 2000 positions and Macys announced it will close 5 locations and lay off 2500 people.   Such cuts are good, but not a long-term strategy for growth.   So why the stock market rally?  Think share buybacks.  Best Buy enacted a $5 billion share repurchase while CAT announced 2 separate $1 billion buybacks.  While Best Buy saw revenue decline 13% and CAT 17%, both saw a marginal drop in EPS for the year, and CAT stock, despite 3 earnings warnings, actually ended the year higher!  When investors wake up and smell the coffee, could a correction be far behind or will a recovery save the day and provide solid earnings growth?
