Steel Stocks Could Have Up to 50% Upside

Almost all investors have been watching tech stocks, as that's where the big gains have been -- and where the recent volatility has materialized. Amazon buying Whole Foods only added to that attention on Friday.

However, there's another industry that at least one analyst believes can have big upside: Steel.

Analysts at Longbow Research upgraded AK Steel , Nucor , Steel Dynamics , U.S. Steel to a buy rating. They assigned a price target of $10 to AK Steel, implying upside of about 40%, a price target of $66 on Nucor, implying upside of about 20% and a price target of $30 on U.S. steel, implying upside of 50%. Analysts assigned a $40 price target to Steel Dynamics, implying upside of about 21%.

Investors are hopeful, given that shares of these stocks are down mid-single digits over the past three trading sessions.

According to the analysts, U.S. Steel and AK Steel have much more upside than Nucor and Steel Dynamics. But given Nucor and Steel Dynamic's year-to-date performance -- down just 7.7% and 6.7%, respectively -- the price targets do not leave as much room for a big rally. This is especially true when considering that U.S. Steel and AK Steel are down about 40% on the year
