anony mous: Tad over done pullback but with bottom of channel still.Long article but worth a read....Commodities Report: Mining Back to Unearthing Profit -- WSJ22 February 2017Source: Dow Jones NewsMetal prices' rebound ends rough stretch marked by deep losses and rush to cut debtBy Scott Patterson and Rhiannon Hoyle The world's biggest miners are profit machines again, cashing in on soaring commodity prices and rewarding investors who stuck with them through a brutal downturn.BHP Billiton Ltd., the world's largest miner by market value, said Tuesday it had a profit of $3.2 billion for the second half of 2016 after posting a $5.7 billion loss in the year-earlier period. Anglo American PLC, the fifth-largest mining company, reported a profit of $1.6 billion for all of 2016, a dramatic rebound from 2015, when it lost $5.6 billion.The solid performance builds on strong results from British-Australian miner Rio Tinto PLC, which two weeks ago said it earned $4.6 billion in 2016 following a loss of $866 million in the prior year. Switzerland-based Glencore PLC is scheduled to release 2016 results on Thursday, with analysts widely predicting a return to profit.The swift return to profitability for the world's mining giants has surprised analysts, investors and executives alike. Few had predicted sustained rallies in everything from iron ore to coal to copper last year.Global mining companies are in better shape now than they were two years ago, when a steep decline in commodity prices sent their shares reeling, analysts say. To bolster their health, they sold off underperforming mines, shrank workforces and paid down massive piles of debt.Glencore scrambled to sell $4.7 billion in assets in the past year, including an Australian rail business and a 49.9% stake in its agriculture business. The company raised $1.4 billion from selling future deliveries of gold and silver from a pair of mines in Peru.The sales, along with eliminating its dividend and issuing new stock, helped Glencore survive a scary dive in its share price as investors rebelled over its debt levels. The company has said its net debt would fall to $17.5 billion or less by the end of 2016, from $29.7 billion as of June 30, 2015.Anglo American last April agreed to sell its Brazilian niobium and phosphates business to China Molybdenum Co. for $1.5 billion -- part of a downsizing plan the company described as "radical." The miner had expected to unload more operations, but a rebound in coal and iron-ore prices made it more attractive to keep those assets.Anglo American also benefited from solid sales of diamonds from its De Beers Group business, which was boosted by U.S. demand. The U.K.-based firm cut its net debt to $8.5 billion at the end of 2016 from $12.9 billion a year earlier.BHP's net debt at year-end stood at $20.1 billion, down from $26.1 billion at midyear. Rio Tinto last year slashed net debt by 30% from the previous year to less than $10 billion."They're as lean as can be," said Campbell Parry, an analyst with Abax Investments, referring to the mining companies. The Cape Town, South Africa, investment firm owns shares of Anglo American and BHP.Leaner balance sheets should give the companies "a lot more agility than they had a few years ago," Mr. Parry said.Rising copper prices have helped the miners. Glencore, Anglo American, BHP and Rio are among the world's biggest producers of the metal, whose price rose 27% in 2016. Copper has continued rising in 2017; it is up nearly 10% as work stoppages in Chile and permit disputes in Indonesia contribute to supply concerns.Now that the miners have dug themselves out of a hole, the question is whether they can keep from sliding back in, analysts say. Mining executives, burned by the downturn, remain cautious.They have chosen to use the surge in profits largely to reward investors, not launch big new projects. Rio increased its dividend and announced a $500 million share buyback. BHP doubled its dividend. Anglo says it plans to pay dividends on 2017 profits after eliminating its dividend last year.Although profits are back, they remain far below the dizzying heights reached in years like 2011, when BHP recorded over $23 billion in profit amid a China-fueled boom in commodity prices.Mining executives are particularly wary that coal and iron-ore prices, which surged last year amid renewed demand in China and reduced Chinese production, have risen too far too fast."I have to say, we don't think these prices will hold up in the long term," Anglo American Chief Executive Mark Cutifani said on a conference call with reporters Tuesday, referring to coal and iron ore.BHP CEO Andrew Mackenzie, in comments to reporters in London Tuesday, said reduced stimulus in China and new supplies will likely hurt prices for bulk commodities.But Mr. Mackenzie said he remains confident that, overall, demand from China will remain solid this year. "I think China is steady as she goes, " he said.Executives are also growing concerned that an increasingly unpredictable political situation in the U.S. and elsewhere could spark trade disputes, disrupting global growth and demand for commodities.BHP executives have singled out the policy platform of President Donald Trump's administration, which they said could spark trade wars that weigh on business confidence, hurt investment and lead to higher inflation in the U.S. Mr. Cutifani has also cautioned Mr. Trump against pushing the world toward protectionism."It's an uncertain world out there," Mr. Mackenzie said. "Trade wars are not going to help anybody."White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters said Mr. Trump's "policies will ultimately prioritize the best interests of the American people and American workers."Other mining executives have expressed enthusiasm about Mr. Trump's plans to ramp up infrastructure spending in the U.S. Glencore CEO Ivan Glasenberg believes that a $1 trillion infrastructure program floated by Mr. Trump is likely to boost demand for the commodities his firm produces, especially copper.Mr. Mackenzie and BHP Chairman Jac Nasser met with Mr. Trump, then president-elect, in January. At the meeting, they discussed the impact the U.S. policy direction could have on resources markets, Mr. Mackenzie said Tuesday.
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: 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.
