In October US Steel reported its first loss since tariffs were imposed.

The company also announced it is cutting its dividend by 80% to 1 cent a share. And after previously announcing it would suspend share repurchases, it announced Thursday that it was formally ending its share repurchase program. Shares of US Steel (X) were down 8% in early trading Friday, leaving shares down 32% for the year.

Look at the art of that! Woah!

Hey, why don't I get to ruin everything and brag about what a great job I am doing?

2. So they burned out their Trump Tax bonus on stock repurchases...
