    Hudbay Minerals (NYSE: HBM) and Cleveland-Cliffs (NYSE:CLF) are both basic materials companies, but which is the superior stock? We will contrast the two businesses based on the strength of their earnings, profitability, analyst recommendations, valuation, dividends, risk and institutional ownership.

  • [By Rich Smith]

    Has there ever been a more surprising turnaround story than Cleveland-Cliffs (NYSE:CLF)?

    Once a bifurcated coal and iron miner known as Cliffs Natural Resources, folks began writing Cleveland-Cliffs' obituary in 2012 after President Obama was elected to his second term -- an apparent death knell to anyone involved in the coal industry. Three years later, the predictions seemed to be coming true, and analysts opined about whether Cleveland-Cliffs could even survive to the end of Obama's term. Within only a few short months, the stock would bottom out. But fast-forward a few years years, and what do we see today?
