Analysts at Jefferies reiterated their Buy rating on Olympic Steel (NASDAQ: ZEUS), but lowered their price target to $22.00 (from $25.00).

Analyst Luke Folta said "We expect ZEUS’ 2Q12 results to miss consensus and recommend reducing exposure heading into Thursday's call. We expect the shares will rise thereafter however in conjunction with improving flat rolled fundamentals given its greatest relative leverage. We reiterate our BUY rating and believe the shares offer exceptional value based on LT cycle earnings potential and depressed valuation (-14% below TBV)."
