First suggestion - someone experienced in the metal sector needs to write an article! This is a well-known company that grew as a result of a variety of acquisitions at the behest of family patriarch Lakshmi N. Mittal. His son, American educated Aditya Mittal, following closely in his fathers footsteps and is currently the CFO of the company. The Mittal family is among the most wealthy in the world while their company is among the most well-regard and rivaled mainly by Nucor.

As MT has made many acquisitions in the last ten years, these should be noted on charts. Over the last ten years, share prices have gone up impressively--is this due to acquisitions or "organic" growth?
-- I think its a bit of both here, the fact that Arcelor can make such acquisitions is because they have the platform to do so. Then again, we need more data on that
