A.M. Castle foresees a third-quarter loss of about 28 cents to 32 cents per share. Its adjusted loss is expected to be comparable to the preliminary estimate.

Analysts polled by FactSet predict a loss of 19 cents per share.

Revenue is forecast between $250 million and $255 million, which the company said was hurt by ongoing softness in key end markets.

A.M. Castle is expected to release its third-quarter financial results on Oct. 29.

The company's stock dropped $1.66, or 10.1 percent, to $14.73 in trading on Wednesday. The shares have traded between $10.83 and $18.74 over the last year.
