AK Steel (AKS) might be interested in the two steel mills in Brazil and the U.S. that ThyssenKrupp has put up for sale, CEO James Wainscott said on a conference call following the steel company's Q3 results. He did not indicate whether AKS actually had made a bid or was considering one; AKS was not believed to have submitted a first-round bid for the assets.

    AKS doesn't have the cash, AKS expects to lose more money in the 4th quarter, the steel industry is still in bad shape and expect a downgrade of AKS stock any day by Moody's. 0% chance of purchasing those steel mills.
