PROACTIVEINVESTOR Oliver Haill 12:05 Thu 09 Jan 2020 Follow Oliver on: viewAnglo American plc Anglo American and Glencore tipped by Deutsche as metals demand rebounds Deutsche Bank analysts view copper as the “best positioned metal”, while aluminium and zinc prices are expected to remain rangebound, and iron ore prices “should remain supported” in the first half Anglo American plc - Copper demand should be supported by a backdrop of low inventories and tight mine supply A rebound in demand for metals in 2020 should boost the mining sector, Deutsche Bank said as it rejigged its forecasts and target prices for giants Anglo American plc (LON:AAL), Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN), BHP Group (LON:BHP) and Rio Tinto plc (LON:RIO). Following an extended period of destocking through the past 18 months, there should be a more supportive global environment, the German bank said in a note to clients on Thursday. READ: Sirius Minerals' Yorkshire mine is a “decent” asset for Anglo American - Barclays Seasonal trends are also expected to remain supportive through the first quarter and valuations “remain undemanding”. Deutsche analysts view copper as the “best positioned metal” as a year of sluggish end demand is being followed by a recovery in demand against a backdrop of low inventories and tight mine supply. Aluminium and zinc are expected to remain range bound as supply increases this year, while iron ore prices “should remain supported” in the first half due to a heavily destocked supply chain before a fade is anticipated towards $70 from midsummer as supply rebounds and demand slows. Anglo and Glencore remain ‘buy’ rated and the analysts top picks, with the former offering a “compelling medium term growth and re-rating story”, while Glencore has been the laggard for two years in a row and was given a slightly higher target price of 275p, up from 270p. Analysts do not expect an extension of the buybacks at either company, though Anglo expected to top up the ordinary dividend in 2019 via either a buyback or special dividends, as it enjoys low leverage but is looking to buy Sirius Minerals (LON:SXX). Ratings for Rio and BHP were kept at ‘hold’ as their valuations are seen as being close to fair value. For BHP though, the arrival of new CEO Mike Henry means “the evolution of BHP's strategy will be an interesting focus area through 2020” as he overseas a large pipeline of unsanctioned and often higher risk projects across petroleum, potash and copper.

BHP eyes India for coal growth as China demand flatlines: Australia's largest miner, BHP, believes the long-term trajectory of the emerging economy of India and the acceleration of its steelmaking output could help offset the flattening demand from China feared in the 2020s. Australian exporters of metallurgical coal – the coal used to make steel – are increasingly looking to the rapid growth of India's steel sector to help to fill the looming demand gap and cushion the blow. "A lot of other markets are big but mature," BHP vice-president of market analysis Huw McKay said. "India is big but it’s barely got started." According to projections from BHP, Indian steelmaking is on course to grow by 7 per cent a year over the 2020s. With yearly output of more than 100 million tonnes of steel, India recently surpassed Japan to become the world's second-biggest steelmaking country. Dr McKay said BHP's modelling had found China – which accounts for roughly half of global steel demand – was now in a "plateau" phase, while demand in other top steel markets Japan and South Korea was also subdued. "The mature markets are sort of settling a little bit and India is coming up, filling a gap that would have emerged," he told The Age and Sydney Morning Herald. Although India has substantial reserves of iron ore, Indian steelmakers import the bulk of their metallurgical coal due to scarce domestic production. India's government is forecasting its metallurgical coal demand to more than double in 10 years as the country plans to increase its crude steel production to 300 million tonnes by 2030. "We don't think they will get all the way there but they will get most of the way there," Dr McKay said. "It's a big, big lift." While forecasts of India's long-term economic trajectory are promising, growth in the past year has been much slower than many had predicted. Observers had anticipated the nation's economic growth would be strengthened by the re-election of Prime Minister Narendra Modi who demonstrated in his first term a focus on modernising the economy including through a clampdown on corruption, a simplification of the country's arcane tax system, the introduction of a goods and services tax and making India a serious destination for foreign investment. "It hasn't really gone that way," Dr McKay said. "They won the general election, but the economy is not purring along, it is stuttering. India's economy slowed for the sixth quarter in a row in the July-September quarter, with GDP growth dipping to a six-year low of 4.5 per cent.
Will BHP’s share price be defined by coal in the 2020s? The BHP Group Ltd (ASX: BHP) share price has performed strongly over the past four years, up 114%. Plus all the dividends. But these days any business that is producing and exporting coal seems to be coming under a lot of public attention. Coal is not BHP’s biggest division by a long shot, it’s iron ore that generates the king’s share of earnings for BHP. But coal generated US$3.4 billion of underlying earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) in FY19, which was more than copper and petroleum, although copper may reclaim its second place position in FY20. The reason why coal could be so influential for BHP’s 2020s share price is due to climate change concerns. Global demand for coal could fall from customers, and investors – which decide the share price – may exclude buying BHP shares because of coal for ESG reasons. Imagine if BHP divested its coal division, there could be a large increase of aggregate demand for BHP shares from investors which would boost the share price. But if I were BHP management I wouldn’t sell the coal division today, I’d want to get a good price for the coal business. Demand from Asia for coal from countries like India is expected to rise considerably over the next 10 years as energy demand rises, which should at least support the coal price. But compared to most other coal companies, BHP is taking more environmental action. The company has said that it accepts its responsibility to take action on global warming and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. One of the things it’s doing is to do new climate portfolio analysis in 2020 to outline plans to mitigate and adapt to global warming. It has launched a five-year, US$400 million climate investment program to assist delivery of its public targets for its own operational emissions (scope 1 and 2) and to work with others across its supply chain to address scope 3 emissions that come from the transport, processing and use of its products. The scope 3 goals will be presented in 2020 and will be designed to measure BHP’s impact and align with the goals of the Paris Agreement. BHP can’t force customers to reduce emissions, but it can work with them to reduce emissions, such as developing carbon capture utilisation and storage in industrial applications such as steel. BHP is currently trading at 15x FY21’s estimated earnings. Iron ore is currently at a strong point in the cycle, so I wouldn’t want to buy shares right now – cycles normally change.

BHP closes in on deal for world's first LNG-powered shipping fleet Nick Toscano By Nick Toscano December 29, 2019 — 9.00pm Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Send via Email Australian miner BHP is preparing to award a landmark contract as early as March for the world's first fleet of bulk ships fuelled by liquefied natural gas after reviewing 17 bids from gas producers, shipbuilders and financial institutions. As the shipping industry braces for its biggest overhaul in decades with new rules slashing sulphur levels in maritime fuel from January 1, BHP, the largest charterer of bulk carriers in the world, has revealed it is close to deciding who will win a tender to design and supply LNG-powered ships to transport up to 27 million tonnes of its iron ore exports to Asia. Using LNG instead of bunker fuel could cut emissions by 25 per cent, says BHP. Using LNG instead of bunker fuel could cut emissions by 25 per cent, says BHP.Credit:Michele Mossop BHP maritime vice-president Rashpal Bhatti said the introduction of bulk carriers running off LNG rather than diesel would eliminate NOx (nitrogen oxide) and SOx (sulphur oxide) emissions as well reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 25 per cent. "We sent requests for tender to 19 organisations – banks, entrepreneurs, vessel owners, shipyards – and 17 of them came back with very detailed offers two months ago," Mr Bhatti told The Age and Sydney Morning Herald. "The great news is the interest is huge." Mr Bhatti said BHP was evaluating the detailed submissions before progressing to a "clarification stage" with the companies in January and subsequent negotiations in February. "We are really excited about it," he said, "and we expect to award in March-April." As well as shipping companies, some of Australia's major gas producers including Woodside, Shell and Pavilion were among the companies to have participated in the tender, according to Mr Bhatti. BHP, the world's biggest miner, has welcomed the United Nations International Maritime Organisation's (IMO) new rules taking effect from next week requiring all ships to use fuel containing no more than 0.5 per cent sulphur, down from 3.5 per cent. The IMO has also set goals to halve carbon dioxide emissions generated by shipping by 2050 compared to 2008 levels. "Whilst there is no regulation around that in terms of carbon reduction, that's coming, there's no doubt about that," Mr Bhatti said. "The industry has been a mono-fuel captive audience to diesel for the last 80 years and it's only now that the IMO has woken up." The incoming reforms have prompted major shippers to seek out cleaner alternatives to the heavy fuel oil known as bunker fuel that until now has been the shipping industry's main source of fuel. Operators across the shipping supply chain including Australia's three big iron ore miners – BHP, Rio Tinto and Fortescue – are bracing for additional costs triggered by the new standards and have been exploring options to ensure compliance with the new standards. Macquarie Wealth Management analysts this year estimated the shift to cleaner fuel and moves to fit vessels with new equipment to capture sulphur emissions could add between US$2-3 a tonne for freight travelling from Western Australia to China. "In coming years, vast research and development investment will take on non-carbon- fuelled propulsion, requiring the construction of new freight infrastructure," the investment house said. Describing global warming as an indisputable crisis requiring a global "mobilisation" effort, BHP's outgoing chief executive, Andrew Mackenzie, embarked this year on a $500 million carbon-reduction drive to cut not only BHP's own emissions but the emissions generated from beyond its mine gates – known as "scope 3" emissions – caused by shippers and the customers of its products such as Asian steel mills and power plants.

BHP Group: a FTSE dividend share for your portfolio? by Ben Hobson: Some of the very best UK-listed companies can be found on the FTSE 350. These companies have often been paying dividends for a very long time, making them prime candidates for a tax-efficient ISA account. UK stocks paid out an eye-watering £100 billion in dividends last year, and the bulk of that cash came from the biggest and best-known companies in the FTSE 350 - including BHP (LON:BHP). There are various ways of finding blue chip dividends, but here is a strategy with some basic rules to put you on the right path to finding the best dividend stocks in the FTSE 350. Let’s look at the Bhp dividend as an example of how it works. GET MORE DATA-DRIVEN INSIGHTS INTO LON:BHP ยป Four rules for finding dividend share: 1. High (but not excessive) dividend yield Yield tells you how much a company pays out in dividends each year as a proportion of its equity. High yields are obviously appealing, but caution is needed. A high yield can be the market's way of saying it is expecting a dividend cut, so it pays to be wary of excessive yields. BHP has an eye-catching dividend yield of 5.65%. 2. Safety in size Part of the appeal of FTSE 350 dividend stocks is their financial strength. Large size and scale means that their vast cashflows tend to be predictable. It gives them the resilience to maintain their dividends through the economic cycle. And while large companies aren’t immune from making dividend cuts, their financial strength is an appealing safety factor for income investors. BHP is a balanced, large cap in the Integrated Mining industry and has a market cap of £89,929m 3. Dividend growth Another important marker for income investors is a track record of dividend growth. Progressive dividend growth can be a pointer to payout policies that are being handled carefully by management. Rather than aggressively dishing out earnings, dividend growth companies tend to have more modest yields, but are better at sustaining their payouts. BHP has increased its dividend payout 7 times over the past 10 years. 4. Dividend cover Attractively high yields obviously turn heads - but it’s important to know that a dividend is affordable. Dividend cover is a go-to measure of a company's net income over the dividend paid to shareholders. It’s calculated as earnings per share divided by the dividend per share and helps to indicate how sustainable a dividend is. Dividend cover of less than 1x suggests that the company can’t fund the payout from its current year earnings. BHP has a dividend cover of 1.37. Next steps: With these four dividend rules, you can track down high yield shares with a record of growth and safety. On this basis, Bhp could be worth a closer look.
