anony mous: 23 December 2016ANGLO AMERICAN RETHINKS SALE PLAN AS COMMODITY PRICES RISEAnglo American PLC, a large coal producer and the world's eighth-largest mining firm by market capitalization, is experiencing a bounceback fueled by rising commodity prices, reports The Wall Street Journal.Prices for commodities such as coal tanked in recent years and the U.K. based-firm posted a $5.6 billion loss and was left with a mountain of debt.In response to the downturn, Anglo devised a strategy to shed 29 mines, about two thirds of its assets, and lay-off 85,000 workers across its operations in Australia, South Africa and Chile. But the company didn't even get halfway through its plan before commodity prices rebounded.The price of a type of coal used in steelmaking has risen dramatically this year and iron-ore prices are up on the back of a Chinese government stimulus package which coincided with a production cut in the giant Asian economy, which consumes about 40% of the world's raw materials.Now, Anglo's coal business is booming and its share price is up nearly 300% this year. The company is poised for an expansion rather than the cutbacks previously envisioned.
anony mous: Omens good for Anglo in 2017 as iron ore, diamonds turn upin Commodity News 23/12/20162017 may be a vastly improved year for Anglo American, in which it celebrates its centenary, with its investments in Kumba Iron Ore and Anglo American Platinum receiving the thumbs up while recently published diamond sales figures from De Beers suggests a stronger market for gems than previously forecast.Goldman Sachs said in a recent report that it expected Kumba to resume dividends in 2017 following an improvement in the iron ore price and the firm's own self help efforts.Nearly 4,000 jobs were cut at Kumba's flagship Sishen Iron Ore mine. The upside to this austerity was that Sishen improved its grade, cut costs and generated cash of R4.5bn, enough to wipe out debt.As a result of Kumba being net cash, Goldman Sachs said it foresaw an improved yield over the next three years. "A 35% payout ratio translates into a 3% dividend yield for the 2016 financial year. On our estimates, Kumba has an average dividend yield of 5.4% for next three years," it said. The report was published on December 12."As the market becomes more confident on continued strength in iron ore prices, we expect to see significant upgrades [to Kumba's share price]," it said.The benchmark futures contract for iron ore, traded on the Dalian Commodity Exchange, yesterday slumped 7.2%, to $80.47 a ton, the biggest daily decline since November 30, said the Wall Street Journal. But Goldman Sachs thought that Kumba's share price was factoring in a sub-$50/t iron ore price.Shares in Kumba have increased nearly a fifth in the last 30 days.Goldman Sachs also upgraded Amplats to neutral after concluding that its share price had weakened sufficiently enough, adding that the firm's management had done the right thing in selling high cost production (Rustenburg Platinum Mines), and reducing net debt.It remains bearish on the platinum market, however. Anglo American owns about 70% of Kumba and just under 80% of Amplats. A plan is reportedly being hatched in which the South African coal mines of Anglo could be floated separately, possibly with Kumba, or using Kumba has a vehicle for the float.And positive sales news from De Beers indicates the 85%-held diamond miner and marketer could comprise a heavy slug of Anglo's pretax earnings again when the group reports its full-year figures in February. De Beers contributed $585m of Anglo's interim pre-tax earnings of $1.38bn.De Beers last week reported sales for its tenth and final sight of the year of some $418m. This was a 12% decline from the previous sight, but it comes at the traditionally weakest period of the year. Nonetheless, the sale figure was 70% higher than the $248m reported in the last sight of 2015."We continued to see good demand for De Beers rough diamonds in our latest sales cycle," said JP Morgan in a note last week."While the trade in lower value rough diamonds is experiencing a temporary slowdown as a result of the demonetisation programme in India, demand across the rest of the product mix continued to be healthy and overall sales remained in line with seasonal expectations," it said.The bank consequently retained its overweight assessment of Anglo which it adopted in July saying that reversing out Anglo's stake in Kumba and Amplats, the 'rump' was trading at a 40% discount to its peer group. With further news on cost reductions, as well as the possible resumption of dividends, JP Morgan expected this discount to narrow.Source: MiningMX
balbains324: shorttracker Co UK will give you information on shorts. Take a look at the chart and you will find it is the inverse of the share price chart. as shorts increase the share price decreases, as shorts decrease the share price increases. it is good info but does not account for external influences. With miners you have to think about a whole heap of things such as the following:Industry figuresinterest RateDollar StrengthCommodity PricesEconomy growth figuresOil PricesShortsThe company itself and everything that comes with buying a piece of a company. if you look at it as if you are the owner of the business and not just a share price. Would you invest in your local builders merchants or corner shop? If you were going to buy it what would you look for? Turnover, profit, debt, dividend, staff etc.Not trying to school anyone just being helpful.
wiseacre: We need to inject some sense of reality: the following is part of broker Jeffries recent note: Restructuring risks: Anglo believes that selling non-core assets is a better approach than issuing equity or selling core assets at premium multiples. Mr Cutifani argues that the resource optionality within tier-1 mines is difficult to value and it is unlikely that full value would be realized in a sale. In the case of non-core assets, the difference between Anglo’s assumed valuation and the buyer’s valuation should be mostly a function of differing commodity price assumptions. Mgmt believes it can realize full value for these non-core assets. Investors, however, are concerned that the sale process will take too much time and that the company’s ability to sell these assets for “full value” depends on commodity prices staying firm. Several investors would prefer an equity issuance as a faster, less risky solution. Either way, it is clear that deleveraging is essential for Anglo. Fade the rally: Based on our analysis, the tradeoff between risk and reward is not favourable in AAL shares at the current price. The recent rally has been extraordinary, with the AAL share price up 137% since Jan 20. Some of that could be attributed to a modest recovery in commodity prices and improved sentiment toward the sector, but we are reluctant to give Anglo additional credit for restructuring targets at this time. We would take profits after the recent strength. Valuation/Risks Higher commodity prices and/or successful restructuring are risks to our Underperform rating. Our 300p target is at a discount to NPV due to operational risks. We are not modeling restructuring benefits at this time.
bobsidian: upwego If you have taken a big bet on a recovery in the share price of AAL then it is understandable that you will be defensive. But nothing said on bulletin boards can influence the share price of as liquid a share as AAL. The current management of AAL have lain out their strategy. The absence of any significant share price rebound suggests that market forces had some knowledge of the scale of the intended wind down and divestment ; the same way market forces seem to have had advance knowledge of the pricing of the share placing in GLEN. The prospect of the share price of AAL recovering to £10 ? Not impossible but at this point in time improbable. China has had its investment boom. The withdrawal of excess capacity is an expensive process likely to involve debt and equity restructuring. There are better bets in the mining sector.
bobsidian: As the mining index once more grinds lower and the shares of BLT and RIO become tightly held and even lower geared participants in a sector sell off, so the share prices of the lesser mining entities are likely to experience ever higher geared moves to the downside to replace the absence of participation of BLT and RIO. When the share price of AAL was last around £5.50 the comparative share prices for RIO and BLT were around £21 and £9.60 respectively. Currently RIO is around £24 and BLT is around £11. If the mining sector index continues to grind lower then that may see the share price of AAL breach the £5 level.
corlis: Something I just came across within telegraph. The ROCE for AAL is - 0.44....any wonder why no TA can predict the huge fall? There are many ways to assess the strength of a business before deciding whether to buy its shares, but one of the most important will be unfamiliar to many investors. It may sound daunting, but a measure called "return on capital employed" or ROCE is arguably the best test of how good a company is at making money. We explain why the measure is useful and, with the help of ShareScope, a service for DIY investors, identify shares that score well, or poorly, according to the measure. ROCE explained Investors can calculate the ROCE from a company’s accounts. It is the profit figure divided by the net assets of the businesses - assets such as factories and equipment, minus debts. A high score suggests that the firm's management is doing a good job, that the business is very profitable and has good pricing power. A low score could suggest that a firm is badly run or that the value of its assets is overstated. There is no hard and fast rule for a "good" ROCE figure, but Terry Smith, manager of the highly regarded Fundsmith Equity fund, has said he will not consider investing in a company unless it can achieve a return on capital of more than 15pc In an interview with Telegraph Money last year, shown in the video below, Mr Smith said: "There are plenty of companies out there with a return on capital of 30pc - why would you bother with 15? If it's 10 or less, the company is a machine for destroying value." It can also be useful to see how a firm's current ROCE compares with past performance. Phil Oakley, an investment analyst at ShareScope, said a high and rising ROCE was usually a sign of a good business, whereas a falling figure could be a sign of trouble ahead. “Quite often, ROCE can start falling long before a company admits to a profit problem, so keeping an eye on this ratio is a smart thing to do,” Mr Oakley said. • Share data: Look up ROCE for each stock • Get a weekly newsletter of investment ideas Why it is important According to Russ Mould, of AJ Bell, the fund shop, the measure helps identity companies that are inefficient or careless with their capital. “It is an extremely useful tool because it lets an investor check that a company is not growing sales or profits in a manner that could actually be detrimental to its health, say by means of acquisition or excessive investment in assets or by taking on too much debt,” Mr Mould said. One high-profile example is Tesco. The ROCE had been falling for years, as the chart below shows, from a peak of 16pc in 2006. It never regained those levels, despite selling lots of its supermarkets and renting them back, which reduced capital employed and artificially boosted the ROCE. Mr Smith said the measure had helped him avoid the company, which had invested heavily in improving stores and expanding into China and the US. As chart shows, Tesco’s share price remained high for many years before plunging. Mr Oakley added: “Looking at ROCE would have been an early warning sign to get out of the shares.” The shares that score poorly ShareScope has identified 20 companies with the biggest fall in ROCE over the past three years. It examined all of the 700-odd shares in the FTSE All Share index. Several high-profile names score poorly, including Vodafone, AstraZeneca and BHP Billiton. In most cases the fall in ROCE has been matched by a significant fall in the share price. There are various reasons why the ROCE falls, but the main one is declining profits. This explains why bombed-out sectors, such as miners, which have been making less money in the face of falling commodity prices, feature in the table below. Other factors, such as when a firm buys another company for a high price, or makes new investments that produce a lower return on capital than the existing business, can also cause the ROCE to fall. The shares that come up trumps The list below shows the 20 shares with the biggest improvements in ROCE over the past three years. In the majority of cases the share price has also risen. One danger of a high ROCE is that high returns can attract competitors hungry for a piece of the action. The key question investors need to ask is whether a positive trend will continue. Mr Oakley said: “Check out a company’s ROCE against its history. Some companies are cyclical (profits move up and down in line with the economy) and could be at a peak, which means that ROCE might not go up much further. “A trough in ROCE might mean a company is worth looking at if it can return to higher levels in the future.” • Share data: Look up ROCE for each stock Data correct at September 14
bobsidian: Ultimate lows have a habit of being reached when short selling and the covering of short positions constitute virtually all of the activity in a share price. There would be no ultimate lows if genuine long term buyers were active participants. I recall when ARM had a share price of around 45p in late 2002 through to early 2003. Back then few were willing to buy the share at that price because what took the share price down to that level could just as easily take it down to 22p. Relatively recently back in 2012 you had the TCG story. It based out at around 14p with moves in the share price over a period of months being orchestrated by changes in the bid-offer spread. No one wanted to buy at that share price because of the perception of an inevitable debt for equity swap which could see the shareholder lose up to 90% of the value of their holding without any prospect of compensation. Fear of further share price falls or unmitigated losses tends to keep long term buyers away at ultimate lows. And at ultimate lows the share price is rendered irrelevant by the corporate and/or the broader economic story. Are we at that point with AAL ?
bobsidian: Can only wonder at the impact on results day. The BHP Billiton share price action today seemed to be the sector driver. It would not be surprising to see its share price also driven down tomorrow and in so doing take the share price of AAL with it. However, it would also not be surprising to see the share price of AAL spike higher on results day - a sell the rumour buy the news scenario. Then again you can but wonder if the share price of BHP Billiton is about to make moves to revisit its own 2008 lows. Were that to happen then the share price of AAL could easily track that move and visit extreme lows of around £5 per share. But as always when there is only expectation of further downside so share prices have a habit of staging fast and furious rebounds. Regardless, it is jaw-dropping to see the AAL share price at current levels.
