maywillow: Is Glencore PLC’s share price set for further volatility? Could Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) experience further uncertainty? November 22, 2018 Robert Stephens Glencore (LON:GLEN) Glencore PLC Glencore PLC This year has been a relatively challenging one for the Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) share price. It has fallen by £1 per share, with it starting the year at £3.95 and now trading at £2.95. In my view, there could be further volatility ahead for the stock, with investors seemingly uncertain about the prospects for the world economy. This seems to have been prompted by the threat of rising US interest rates, which could reduce demand for commodities in future and also cause a slowdown in growth in the world economy. Alongside this, further tariffs cannot be ruled out. They could lead to pressure on the rate of global GDP growth over the medium term, which may cause investor sentiment towards the resources sector to decline to some degree. As well as external challenges, Glencore may also face regulatory risks. They could hold back its share price prospects, although the stock’s P/E ratio of around 8 indicates that it may already have a margin of safety factored into its share price. Given its relatively low valuation, I believe that the company may offer long-term investment potential. In the short run, it could experience further challenges, but I believe that the cost-reduction and debt-reduction strategies that have been pursued in recent years may have created a stronger business that is better able to cope with a volatile wider commodities market. Therefore, while I think that Glencore faces continued risks which may lead to further volatility, I am also of the view that it could offer good value for money at the moment. It is forecast to post modest EPS growth next year, and this could help to improve investor sentiment to at least some degree. As someone who is generally bullish about the outlook for the resources industry, I’m optimistic about the stock’s long-term outlook. However, I think its period of heightened volatility may not yet be over. About Robert Stephens 4928 Articles Robert Stephens is a CFA Charterholder and an Equity Analyst by trade.

the grumpy old men: Investomania Home Investing Articles FTSE 100 Lloyds Share Price BT Share Price Could Glencore PLC outperform the FTSE 100? Does Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) offer stronger investment prospects than the FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE:UKX)? November 5, 2018 Robert Stephens Glencore (LON:GLEN) Glencore PLC Glencore PLC The prospects for the Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) share price may appear to be relatively uncertain at the moment. The company’s valuation has come under pressure in recent months, with fears surrounding the outlook for the world economy being a key reason for this in my view. Investors seem to be worried about the potential for further tariffs on imports from major economies such as the US and China. Alongside this, a higher US interest rate could be ahead as a result of strong GDP growth. This could lead to a stronger dollar, which could reduce demand for commodities across the globe. Glencore also faces regulatory risk in my view. The company may therefore face a challenging outlook, and I wouldn’t be surprised if its share price remains volatile over the coming months. Of course, the company now seems to be in a stronger financial position than it was a number of years ago. According to my research it has been able to reduce debt and cut costs, as well as follow through with an asset disposal programme. This seems to have put the company in a stronger position to cope with the ups-and-downs that seem to be a major part of the resources industry. Since the Glencore share price has fallen heavily in recent months, it now has a single-digit P/E ratio and a dividend yield that is approaching 6%. These figures could make it relatively attractive in my view, and may lead to scope for a higher share price over the long run. I remain relatively optimistic about the wider resources industry and the world economy’s outlook. Although there are risks, and volatility could be high, I feel that there remains growth potential which could lead to growing demand for a range of commodities. Therefore, I think the stock could beat the FTSE 100 in the long run, but it may experience further challenges in the short term.

adrian j boris: Can this 5% dividend yielder smash the Glencore share price? Alan Oscroft | Thursday, 1st November, 2018 | More on: CEY GLEN Image source: Getty Images. One way to play the recovery in the commodities market is to buy a diversified miner and spread the risk. Or you could play it the opposite way if you see a single-focus producer which you think has good prospects. Gold miner Centamin (LSE: CEY) is one way to take the latter approach. Though the share price has already almost doubled over five years, it’s actually lost nearly 50% of its value since a peak in April 2017, and I think it could be looking a bit oversold at the moment. The problem right now seems to be weak forecasts, which suggest a further 23% hit to EPS this year after last year’s 48% slump. And Thursday’s third-quarter results didn’t help. Mixed results Although the company reported a 27% quarter-on-quarter rise in production at its Sukari mine to 117,720 ounces, actual sales only grew by 9%. That apparent shortfall shouldn’t matter as it’s really just down to the timings of gold pours and shipments, but a 7% drop in the average selling price, to $1,206 per ounce, does matter. The overall result (of a sales rise and a price fall) was a modest 1% improvement in revenue and a 1% decrease in quarter-on-quarter pre-tax profit. Stocks like Centamin really do hinge on the price of gold, and it’s been on a bit of a slide so far this year. But on the upside, Centamin has no debt, its shares don’t look highly valued to me, and it does pay good dividends. The yield is forecast to drop this year, mind, to yield 4.2%, but there’s a rebound to 5.6% predicted for 2019 — though gold price movements between now and then make it probably one of the least reliable forecasts. But if gold is your thing, I see Centamin as a good choice. Diversification The opposite strategy, of going for a diversified miner like Glencore (LSE: GLEN), should reduce the risk of relying on a single commodity. But you can still face a volatile ride, and even though the Glencore share price has climbed strongly since the depths of early 2016, it’s still underperformed the FTSE 100 over the past five years. And over 10 years, we’re actually looking at a 40% loss. That does cover a period before the merger with Xstrata in 2013, so perhaps those earlier years are not a good comparison. Since the merger, Glencore shares have outperformed the Footsie by a couple of percent, but with a far rockier ride. What does this say? I’ve always been generally positive about the mining business as I see it as a long-term safe sector — it’s digging up riches that the world just can’t do without. But I think you really do need a very long-term horizon. I recently examined problems that are likely to be depressing the Glencore share price. But even if we look at miners without such issues, I’m becoming increasingly unconvinced that the long-term benefits really outweigh the cyclical volatility. BHP Billiton shares, for example, have performed even worse over five years with a 12% drop. Rio Tinto is up 16% over the same timescale, but lags the Footsie over longer periods. But I do still see Glencore shares as cheap on a forecast P/E of eight, and I think they could rise when those problems are sorted.

la forge: Are further share price falls ahead for Glencore PLC? Could Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) experience further challenges? October 23, 2018 Robert Stephens Glencore (LON:GLEN) Glencore PLC Glencore PLC The performance of the Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) share price has been disappointing in recent months. The mining company’s valuation has fallen by over 20% since the start of the year. One reason for this could be the uncertainty which the world economy is currently facing. There are fears that a stronger dollar could slow down the US economy, which could have a knock-on effect on the rest of the global economy. It could cause challenges in emerging markets due to the debt that they currently have after a long period of an expansive monetary policy. A higher US interest rate may also support a stronger dollar. This in itself may cause demand for commodities to fall, while the prospect of further tariffs being put in place may also have caused investors to become concerned about the prospects for the wider industry. There may also be regulatory risks holding back the Glencore share price. And in the near term, these factors could continue to weigh on its performance in my view. As a result, I wouldn’t be surprised if its market value comes under further pressure in the coming months. The company, though, seems to have made progress with its strategy in my opinion over the last few years. It now has a stronger balance sheet than it used to, with cash flow also improving as a result of various cost-saving initiatives. This could help the company to perform better in future, with volatile commodity price rises likely to be a key part of the industry in the coming years. With Glencore now having a dividend yield of almost 6% and a P/E ratio of around 9, I think that the company could offer good value for money versus the FTSE 100. While not the most stable or resilient of stocks due to its reliance on commodity prices, I feel that its share price fall has improved its risk to reward ratio for the long term.

maywillow: 4 resources shares with growth potential? BP plc, Glencore PLC, Premier Oil PLC and Royal Dutch Shell Plc Do these stocks offer improving investment outlooks? BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L), Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L), Premier Oil PLC (LON:PMO) (PMO.L) and Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSB) (RDSB.L) October 22, 2018 Robert Stephens FTSE 100 Royal Dutch Shell Plc Royal Dutch Shell Plc The long-term prospects for the resources industry are relatively bright in my view, and that’s why I’m taking a closer look at BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L), Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L), Premier Oil PLC (LON:PMO) (PMO.L) and Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSB) (RDSB.L). BP could benefit from further rises in the oil price in my opinion. Geopolitical tension in countries such as Iran and Venezuela could lead to supply disruption, and this may mean that the oil price has further upside potential. With BP’s share price having a P/E of around 14, I think that it could offer good value for money. A dividend yield of 5.5% suggests to me that it may offer income potential, as well as capital growth prospects over the long run. Premier Oil may also benefit from a higher oil price. The company has been able to become increasingly efficient in recent years, and this is expected to help improve its cash flow in the second half of the year. Higher cash flow could be used to reduce debt levels and create a more sustainable business. With the company’s P/E ratio of around 6 suggesting to me that there may be a margin of safety on offer, I’m optimistic about the outlook for the Premier Oil share price. Glencore’s recent share price performance has been disappointing. Investors may be concerned about the stronger dollar, or by the regulatory risks which the company faces. I’m optimistic about the long-term future for the world economy, though, and believe that demand for commodities could remain high. With Glencore having improved its balance sheet and efficiency in recent years and it having a single-digit P/E ratio, I think that it could have investment appeal. Shell’s balance sheet could be set to improve through planned debt reduction, as well as an asset disposal programme. The FTSE 100 company may be able to strengthen its long-term outlook, while also increasing free cash flow over the next couple of years. With a dividend yield of over 5%, I feel that there could be further upside potential for the Shell share price. With a large and diverse asset base, I believe it could offer a sound risk to reward ratio. About Robert Stephens 4627 Articles Robert Stephens is a CFA Charterholder and an Equity Analyst by trade.

la forge: What could the future hold for Aviva plc, Glencore PLC, Vodafone Group plc and Royal Dutch Shell Plc? Do these shares offer bright investment outlooks? Aviva plc (LON:AV) (AV.L), Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L), Vodafone Group plc (LON:VOD) (VOD.L) and Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSB) (RDSB.L) October 16, 2018 Robert Stephens FTSE 100 Royal Dutch Shell Plc Royal Dutch Shell Plc The investment prospects of Aviva plc (LON:AV) (AV.L), Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L), Vodafone Group plc (LON:VOD) (VOD.L) and Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSB) (RDSB.L) appear to be relatively bright in my view. Aviva is currently searching for a new CEO, which could create a degree of instability in the short run. However, with what seems to be a sound business model following its restructuring of recent years, I feel it could generate improving financial performance. With acquisitions set to be ahead alongside further investment in fast-growing markets, I believe that the Aviva share price could offer good value for money on a dividend yield of around 6%. Glencore’s recent share price falls could continue in the short run. Investor sentiment appears to be weak, and this trend could continue as fears surrounding regulatory risks continue. However, with a single-digit P/E ratio and what seems to be an improving business model, I’m upbeat about the outlook for the Glencore share price. With the world economy continuing to grow relatively quickly, I think it could benefit from a buoyant commodity marketplace. Vodafone’s share price fall has been disappointing in recent months. The company’s stock price has come under pressure as investors have become concerned about the level of investment required by the business. While this could hold back its performance in the near term, over the long run I believe that the FTSE 100 stock could offer upside potential. Vodafone has a 7%+ dividend yield and with acquisitions having been made recently, its EPS growth rate could improve over the next few years. Shell’s dividend yield continues to be relatively attractive in my view – even after its share price has performed relatively well in recent months. With a 5.5%+ dividend yield, the stock continues to have a yield that is around 150 basis points higher than the FTSE 100. Since I’m optimistic about the prospects for the oil price, I feel that Shell could offer upside potential, although volatility may be relatively high.

sarkasm: Can Glencore PLC recover after 20% share price fall? Does Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) have turnaround potential? October 11, 2018 Robert Stephens Glencore (LON:GLEN) Glencore PLC Glencore PLC Since the start of the year, the Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) share price has fallen by around 20%. That’s a disappointing performance, with investors becoming uncertain about the regulatory risk facing the company. Of course, a stronger dollar may also have helped peg back the performance of the company’s stock price. This could have reduced demand for commodities across the globe, and this trend could continue as US interest rates are forecast to rise. In my view, the prospects for the Glencore share price may therefore be uncertain. I wouldn’t be surprised if there is further volatility ahead in the near term, which may lead to additional disappointment for the company’s investors. That said, the valuation of the stock now appears to be relatively low. It has a P/E ratio of around 9 according to my calculations, and this suggests that there could be a margin of safety on offer. Given the strength of the world economy’s growth rate, this could mean that the stock has investment appeal in my opinion. Glencore has been able to improve its business model in recent years to my mind. It has reduced debt and also cut costs in order to make itself more efficient. This could lead to a stronger financial outlook for the business, and it may prove to be more resilient during periods of heightened volatility for the wider resources industry. With the stock having a dividend yield in excess of 5%, I think that it could offer income investing appeal. Although it is riskier and more volatile than many FTSE 100 dividend stocks, in the long run the total returns which may be available could prove to be relatively sound. Therefore, while its performance in 2018 has been disappointing, the long-term recovery potential for the business remains sound in my view. Its shares may fall further in the near term, but could offer turnaround potential in the coming years.

garycook: Got your eye on the 5.3% dividend yield forecast for Glencore (LSE: GLEN) for 2018, followed by the nice hike to 5.6% predicted for 2019? I was bullish on the shares when I looked at the company in July, but I’m very much a long-term investor and I don’t worry too much about the cyclical nature of an industry or about short-term problems if I think they can be overcome. Downside But I’m looking critically at a few FTSE 100 favourites with a view to digging out their downsides, and right now Glencore is facing the possible wrath of lawmakers. The US Department of Justice is investigating possible money laundering in relation to the firm’s dealings in several countries. And there’s also the possibility of action by the Serious Fraud Office in the UK over similar suggestions. These worries have hit the share price, which has slid 16% since they started to emerge in May, pushing the shares down a total of 23% so far in 2018. But to put that into perspective, Glencore shares have almost quadrupled in value since the depths of the company’s crisis in January 2016. The legal questions will probably take a long time to be answered fully too, so I’m expecting the share price to be held back until we have some resolution — and I wouldn’t be surprised for any intermediate update on the situation to result in a short-term drop. For that reason, nervous investors might do better to avoid Glencore for now. But what if you’re not nervous? Bull run over There’s that cyclical thing, with the commodities sector having enjoyed a bullish phase over the past couple of years as the slump in metals and minerals prices has receded. But the copper price has fallen back quite a bit in the past three months, iron ore is down since its recent high in January, and the same has been happening with nickel, zinc, and other metals. Earlier in 2018, investors appeared upbeat about the commodities market, and the rises in the share prices of miners must surely have been at least partly driven by expectations of a bull run continuing through the year. But that hasn’t happened. The world oversupply of the previous few years hasn’t really disappeared, but perhaps has just slowed — and there’s certainly no shortage of the precious things of the Earth. So where does that leave me regarding Glencore shares? Now that some of the initial recovery bullishness has worn off and share prices have declined a little, I’m seeing the sector as attractively valued and a good prospect, especially for dividend seekers. Rio Tinto, for example, is forecast to deliver a yield of 6% this year, and its shares are on a modest forward P/E of 10. Good value now? Compared to that, Glencore’s forward P/E of only a little over eight looks even better value — even bearing in mind that miners traditionally command relatively low P/E multiples. And the dividend? We’ve got to remember that Glencore stopped its dividend in 2016 after several years of declining payouts, and this year’s will be the first since the company’s recovery. But I see the dividend as fairly reliable again now (or as reliable as a miner’s dividend can be), and I do still think Glencore shares are oversold on the legal worries.

la forge: Is Glencore’s low share price a bargain or a trap? Edward Sheldon, CFA | Monday, 20th August, 2018 | More on: GLEN RIO Image source: Getty Images. Commodity giant Glencore (LSE: GLEN) appears to be a very popular stock right now. Indeed, according to Hargreaves Lansdown, it was the second most purchased stock on its platform last week by deal size, representing 3.6% of all shares bought. It was a similar story over at Barclays, with GLEN also being the second most purchased stock for the week. So should you follow the herd and invest in the £44bn market-cap mining company? Share price fall Glencore shares have experienced a dramatic decline over the last two months, falling over 20%. As a result, the shares do appear to offer value at present. For example, with City analysts expecting the group to generate earnings of $0.49 this year, the stock currently trades on a forward P/E ratio of just 8.1 which is considerably lower than the median FTSE 100 forward P/E of 13.9. There also appears to be appeal from a dividend-investing perspective, with the stock offering a prospective yield of 5.3%. When you consider that the company’s performance in 2017 was its “strongest on record” according to CEO Ivan Glasenberg and that analysts expect revenue and earnings to jump 13.4% and 19.5% respectively this year, those metrics certainly look attractive. However, before you load up on Glencore shares, you need to be aware of the risks. A large part of the reason the shares have fallen recently is that in early July, the group was hit with a subpoena from the US Department of Justice (DoJ) concerning an investigation into possible money laundering across its operations in Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Venezuela. The DoJ wants to see documents and records on compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and US money laundering statutes dating as far back as 2007. It’s still early days as far as the investigation from the DoJ goes and so it’s hard to get a reading on the implications here. However, given the uncertainty that has arisen as a result of the subpoena, I personally believe it’s sensible to avoid Glencore shares for now. A safer mining stock? If commodity companies interest you, you might want to take a look at Rio Tinto (LSE: RIO) instead of Glencore. Its share price has also retreated recently, meaning there’s a high dividend yield on offer at present. Rio reported half-year results in early August and there was good news for investors, with the company announcing that shareholders are set to receive extra returns in the near future as a result of asset disposals. For the six months to 30 June, underlying earnings per share rose 16%, which resulted in a 15% increase in the interim dividend. Looking at consensus forecasts, City analysts currently expect RIO to generate earnings per share of $4.82 this year and pay a dividend of $2.88 per share. At the current share price, those figures equate to a forward P/E of 9.9 and a prospective yield of 6%. These metrics look quite attractive, in my view. Having said that, it’s important to realise that mining is a highly cyclical business, so dividends are far from guaranteed. THE MOTELY FOOL
