In the following video, Fool analyst Jeff Fischer talks about GrafTech International (UNKNOWN: GTI.DL  ) and why he's watching the stock.

Graftech provides graphite electrodes for the steel industries, so when steel production goes up, GrafTech's business gets better. Steel is down in the dumps right now, but Jeff thinks we'll soon be seeing a recovery. In the meantime, GTI's shares are down quite a bit, and he says it look likes a value play.

The company has competition in China as well as some here in the U.S., but GrafTech maintains competitive advantages. A potential catalyst for the stock is construction, Jeff says. That drives up steel demand, which eventually will translate to more business for GTI.

Jeff advises investors to be patient.

    Don't know enough about GTI to comment. I am with a micro-cap company called Lomiko Metals (TSX-V: LMR, OTC: LMRMF) which has recently signed a Strategic Alliance Agreement with Graphene Labs of New York. I was recently in Washington at the TechConnect Conference and one of the things that jumped out at me was how busy the Graphene Labs table was compared to many other graphene companies there.

    I think graphene will definitely make an impact but there are many groups that are earnest but not capable or capable but not earnest. Buyers beware. We have all the right stuff in the ground (high carbon content graphite) and the right partner in Graphene Labs (who work with Stony Brook University in developing supercapacitors) yet it is difficult for us to find long term investors who see the coming graphene revolution and are able to find us. Graphene Labs owns which is one of the few places that sells graphene for laboratories online. They have 5000 customers full of Fortune 500 companies, governments and agencies.

    Our public company has the exclusive right to purchase an equity stake in Graphene Labs and we would welcome scrutiny from the right people.

    We are asking people to dig deeper and take a look.

    Best Regards,

    A. Paul Gill
