anley2: Averaged using £/cost averaging............ I noticed that GLEN said that their China orders in 2016 for zinc and nickle are very good and the article went on to say China consumes 50% of the worlds nickle supply and 46% for zinc. These two metals form a big part of the S32 mining operations and on top of that the outlook for silver (another S32 holding) looks good over the next few years as well. I believe that S32 are now very oversold as small shareholders are still selling....always a reasonable sign that a bottom is being formed in the share price. Sorry if I seem to be talking my book but for me a contarian investor this share is a steal for 2016.
anley2: I have bought twice today based on the following: 1 South32 to distribute a MIN of 40%of underlying earnings as dividends every 6 months 2 Debt now down to $196 v $402 and could still be falling 3 Capex and running costs under control and could be reduced even further 5 Schroders bought about 5% at the end of October for various investment funds The share price having dropped by 50% (110p) since the demerger and the shares now have a yield based on the distribution policy I have bought to average down again. Once the commodities market starts to change and this share gets noticed I can see it jumping upwards.....but then I am a bullish person but based on good matrics. That is how I see it today.......
gateside: South32 defends share price slump hxxp://
anhar: I hold BLT in my income port. and have decided to hang on to my S32 allocation for the time being. My strategy is to buy high yield shares and sell when the yield drops to the then market average. If that never happens, I never sell. I have no interest in share price fluctuations or almost all news or who the CEO is etc., only in the divis. I wouldn't buy S32 now because of the unknown yield, so I'm not going to add to my holding, but I'll give it a chance to develop. Maybe a couple of years. If and when it starts paying divis, I'll then review it in line with my normal strategy rules for yields. In any case it is only a small holding compared with my BLT so whatever happens it is not a significant part of my port.
darias: I have a very limited residual holding from the split with BHP Billiton. The company has a market cap of around 4.844m has now been around for a little over a month. Now it is my view that a £4,844m company should be udating its shareholders with financial information on a regular basis to maintain its price but I have looked at the news since it opened and the only news of any import I can find is;symbol=s32 They have announced a new "joint" secretary. But why does a PLC need two secretaries. Is it so that they can blame each other if things go wrong, if so why not 3, 4 or even more company secretaries for each PLC. I have considered buying more but I need some information as to why I should and there is nothing there. I have decided the company is a "pig in a poke" and it is for gamblers and insiders to deal. When I see some support in the share price I may take a larger stake but until then, Best of luck all.
togglebrush: Press LONDON (Sharecast) - Date: 8:45 am, 20 May 2015 ‘ Focus brings value with it is the thinking behind BHP Billiton´s decision to spin-off its operations in the more problematic commodities, such as aluminium, manganese and silver. The management of newly created South 32 will now be able to concentrate its efforts on micro-managing individual mines and product lines. In turn, that will free up BHP´s executive team to concentrate on its iron ore, oil and gas, coal and copper assets. ‘ A potential bid from a predator such as X2 Resources might provide support for South 32´s share price. The company´s stock market debut was underwhelming, although institutional investors did not seem to have been put off. Nonetheless, the firm has been left in charge of commodities with some of the toughest cycles to manage. As well, the impact of China remains an unknown quantity. However, the skilled management team at the helm means that at the very least the shares are worth holding onto. Buy for the long-term says The Times´s Tempus.
togglebrush: Significant volume occurred yesterday and volumes of lower priced S42 have cash values close to BLT ‘ FWIW ' Price of S42 was roughly 12th of BLT at launch and dividing S42 Daily Volumes by 12 shows both are generating roughly the same cash value which is interesting. Both have equal numbers of shares ' ADVFN reporting Daily Trading volume ‘ Date_______S32__________S32 / 12_________BLT ' Monday_____111,102,863___9,258,572_______17,403,008 Tuesday____209,724,744__17,477,062_______12,450,899 ==================================================== Total___________________26,735,634_______29,853,907 ‘ More importantly Roughly two days London Volume gives 7.5% of S42 shares changing hands alone and share price is up 13.6% from launch.

anhar: I'm keeping my S32 allocation for a while, probably a couple years minimum, to see how their divis develop. This decision assisted by BLT at least maintaining its existing divi plus my strategy rule of not selling a share until its yield meets the market. I don't know what S32 yield will be, if anything, which is why I'm giving it reasonable time to prove itself as an income producer. As usual I have no interest in share price action, just in the divis. I could have the far greater likelihood of income from the value of the S32 holding by selling and reinvesting the cash into another HY share, maybe BLT itself. But the income gamble I'm taking by waiting is tiny given that the current value of my S32 holding is so small compared with my BLT holding or with my whole portfolio.
