Is Cleveland-Cliffs stock undervalued or overvalued?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Cleveland-Cliffs shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cleveland-Cliffs shares which in turn could have impacted Cleveland-Cliffs's share price.
