Analysts at Berenberg raised their target price on mining giant BHP from 2,200.0p to 2,300.0p on Tuesday after the firm's interim results came in better than expectations.

Berenberg said BHP's recent first-half results surprised to the upside in terms of free cash flow generation, mainly down to tax and working capital, and noted its dividend of $1.50 per share came in ahead of both consensus and its expectation of $1.33.

The German bank said management's commentary on the two subsequent earnings calls pointed to "good cost control" and the ability to fight against cost inflation and while BHP is unlikely to be immune from cost inflation, it appears that productivity has played a part in keeping unit costs contained.

Capex, on the other hand, appears to be moving "structurally higher" from an industry standpoint, driven by increased decarbonisation spend, with BHP guiding to the upper end of its $2.0bn-4.0bn range to 2030, automation/efficiencies and stripping, which Berenberg expects to increase as mines become more mature.

"We also think that after a period of reduced capex investment in assets due to cost reduction programmes, which is more of an industry-specific theme than a BHP-specific one, maintenance capex will be structurally higher into the medium term (eg Anglo American Platinum is a good case in point here). This has scope to weigh on free cash flow and dividends should there be a tempering of commodity prices," said the analysts, as they reiterated their 'hold' rating on the stock.

STOCKHOLM--Swedish engineering group Sandvik AB said Wednesday its mining-and-rock products unit has been awarded a two billion Swedish kronor ($213.3 million) contract from BHP Group Ltd. for underground-mining equipment and automation products at the Jansen Potash project in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Delivery of the equipment is expected to start in the third quarter of 2023 and will extend to 2026, the company said.

An order value of around SEK500 million will be reported in each of the first, second and fourth quarters of 2022, as well as in the second quarter of 2023, the company said.

The Jansen project is a potash-producing mine and is expected to operate for up to 100 years. Production is expected to start in 2027.

Since Elliott got on their back this has been a much better company, all about shareholder returns now and exiting dog index of the world ftse 100 was a good move even if they left it too long but that has removed a drag on the share price as since brexit the index is trading at 28 per cent discount to all other developed markets.
UPDATE: BHP ups payout as interim profit jumps despite cost pressure

Tue, 15th Feb 2022 05:57
Alliance News

(Alliance News) -Â BHP Group Ltd on Tuesday reported a "strong" set of interim results, leading to the miner declaring a bumper payout


Revenue from continuing operations for the six months to December 31 rose 27% to USD30.53 billion from USD24.04 billion a year earlier.

Pretax profit increased 61% to USD14.49 billion from USD9.01 billion.

This figures do not include BHP's petroleum assets, as those are soon to be transferred to Woodside Petroleum Ltd, in a deal announced in November 2021 and set to close in the June 2022 quarter.

Behind the increase in profit was higher sales prices across major commodities, near record production at Western Australia Iron Ore and higher concentrate sales at Spence. This was offset somewhat by inflationary pressures, including higher fuel and energy prices.

Released last month, BHP said copper production in the period 12% year-on-year to 742,000 tonnes while the metal's average realised price rose 30% to USD4.31 per pound. Iron ore production rose 0.8% to 129.4 million tonnes.

"BHP had a strong first half. We achieved our third consecutive fatality free calendar year. We mitigated the impacts of Covid-19 and significant adverse weather events to turn in a solid operational performance, particularly from our flagship Western Australian Iron Ore business," said Chief Executive Mike Henry.

The robust half led to the firm declaring a record interim dividend of USD1.50, up from USD1.01 a year before and beating forecasts of USD1.24. The payout was supported by a "reliable operating performance" and "continued strong markets".

"BHP is well positioned for the future. We are building on our strong foundations and capital discipline to reshape our business

and grow long-term value for shareholders and other stakeholders," said Henry.

Looking ahead, BHP said it remains positive on commodity demand though did flag cost pressures. The firm cited labour costs and other industry-wide inflationary pressures, and said cost headwinds due to supply bottlenecks are set to remain challenging throughout the remainder of the current financial year. These pressures should see "only tentative signs of easing" by the end of the period.

"As the actual recognition of costs tends to lag developments in prompt pricing, these pressures

are expected to continue to impact on our cost base in the following calendar year. Demand-led inflation in the broader economy, reflecting a healthy tension between rising demand and the ability to meet it, is expected to endure for some time. That is fundamentally positive for the resources industry," BHP said.

BHP First-Half Net Profit More Than Doubles on Strong Commodity Prices

BHP Group Ltd. said its first-half net profit more than doubled, underpinned by strong prices for all of its commodities, including copper and coal.

The world's largest-listed miner by market value said it made a net profit of $9.44 billion in the six months through December. It made a profit of $3.88 billion in the same period a year earlier, when impairment charges against its coal assets weighed on its bottom line.

BHP not a PLC but still plenty of dividend interest for shareholders

Mining titan BHP Group Limited on Wednesday follows sector peer Glencore in reporting results, with (Aussie) dollar signs flashing in investors’ eyes in expectation of a big dividend.

Note it is not a PLC any more as January saw the domicile switched to Australia and shareholdings ‘unified’ into the Aussie business.

Dividends though will still be paid as normal to the UK shareholder base and another thumping cheque/digital transfer should be on the way with the interim results for the six months to end December.

Consensus forecasts are for revenues of US$29.8bn (£22bn), underlying profits (EBITDA) of US$18.3bn and a dividend of 124c.

re 1321 - last sentence - "photovoltaic cells 4 to 5 tonnes copper per MW" that equates to 4 to 5kg copper per kw installed, which I know is simply not the case from what is on my roof.
thanks Waldron. So still listed in Uk but under a different name . Might now follow price in OZ more closely as now the same company .
BHP Group's corporate unification takes effect after court sanction

Mon, 31st Jan 2022 07:52
Alliance News

(Alliance News) - BHP Group PLC on Monday said its corporate structure unification will become effective once its new shares begin trading in London and Johannesburg, following its sanction by the UK court on Tuesday last week.

With effect from the Johannesburg equities open, BHP Group Ltd shares have been admitted to trading. As a result, the miner's PLC shares have been suspended and will be cancelled at the open on Friday.

In London, the Ltd shares will be admitted to trading at the open, while the PLC shares are cancelled at the same time.

PLC shareholders will receive one Ltd share

for each PLC share held at 2100 GMT on Friday last week.

For the purposes of the unification, 2.11 billion new Ltd shares

have been issued in London, Johannesburg and Sydney, leading to the company having 5.06 billion shares issued overall.

Shares in BHP Group closed 1.2% lower at AUD46.35 on Monday in Sydney.

By Dayo Laniyan;

nice looking chart and should soon be a NOR situation . I am not up on the fundamentals but cam anyone tell me when BHP will be delisted in UK ?
Stocks to watch: BHP shares might be headed higher as massive short interest unwinds. Short interest in BHP has climbed sharply since August and peaked at the end of January, when it was by far the most shorted Australian miner, said Shaw and Partners.

"We expect that BHP's short interest peaked on 28-31 January ahead of unification and moreover we expect short interest to return to more 'normal' levels" in the coming days or weeks, the broker said. That typically has favorable results for stocks, which tend to rise as shorts fall away, Shaw added. BHP was up 3.4%.
