florenceorbis: Investomania Will an uncertain global outlook hurt Premier Oil, Glencore and Tullow Oil? Could shares in Premier Oil PLC (LON:PMO) (PMO.L), Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) and Tullow Oil plc (LON:TLW) (TLW.L) experience a challenging period? October 4, 2019 Robert Stephens, CFA FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE: UKX), FTSE 250 (INDEXFTSE: MCX), Glencore (LON: GLEN) (GLEN.L) (GLEN.LON), Premier Oil (LON: PMO) (PMO.L) (PMO.LON), Tullow Oil (LON: TLW) (TLW.L) (TLW.LON) Tullow Oil share price Tullow Oil share price The world economy continues to face a period of uncertainty, and this could cause a degree of volatility for the share prices of Premier Oil PLC (LON:PMO) (PMO.L), Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) and Tullow Oil plc (LON:TLW) (TLW.L) in my view. As cyclical businesses that are dependent on demand for a variety of materials, the stocks could be hurt by weaker demand resulting from an increasingly protectionist global economy in my view. The oil price, for instance, may experience weaker demand growth than has previously been expected. A slowing world economy, particularly in Asia where growth has been strong in recent years, could mean that Premier Oil and Tullow Oil suffer to some degree from a lower oil price. This, though, could be countered by restricted supply growth as a result of geopolitical risks in areas such as South America, North Africa and the Middle East. Therefore, I’m optimistic about the prospects for the both stocks over the long run. Premier Oil has a disciplined approach to costs and debt reduction to my mind. Its modest P/E ratio also makes it more appealing in my view, although I still consider it to be a high-risk stock. Similarly, Tullow Oil’s focus on ramping-up production and reducing leverage could create a stronger business over the long run in my opinion. This may catalyse investor sentiment to some degree and facilitate a higher share price in future years. Glencore, meanwhile, is undergoing a period of transition in my opinion. It is seeking to switch from fossil fuels to cleaner energy, with an example of this being its plans to expand production of key materials used in vehicle batteries. This may prove to be a growth market for the business to my mind, with around 30% of all vehicle sales by 2030 expected to be fully electric vehicles. Regulatory risks may also hold back Glencore’s performance in the short run. But as far as its investment potential versus the rest of the FTSE 100 mining sector, I’m optimistic about its long-term prospects in spite of the potential for further global macro risks.
sarkasm: the motely fool The Glencore share price has fallen 20% in six months – here’s what I’d do now Conor Coyle | Friday, 6th September, 2019 | More on: GLEN Silhouette of digger Image source: Getty Images. Shares in mining giant Glencore (LSE:GLEN) have taken a beating over the last six months or so, with the company’s share price currently sitting at 235p, a fall of just under 20%. A recent surge has prompted some investors to consider whether now is the right time to buy into a recovery of the FTSE 100 stock. Glencore has suffered from falling profits in recent times, no less than in its most quarterly earnings report where its adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation fell 32% to $5.6bn. Full-year results in 2018 fell short of expectations and that trend appears to be continuing this year, with lower commodity prices for its main production materials weighing on performance. So what are the prospects for the Glencore share price for the remainder of 2019 and beyond? Operational issues Fears over a global recession and an ongoing trade conflict between the US and China, leading to a fall in cobalt prices led to declining profits for Glencore in the last quarter, but the company also referred to unresolved operational issues as making up $2bn of the $8bn decline in operating earnings. While cobalt prices have recovered somewhat since Glencore announced it was closing its Mutanda mine in DR Congo, it’s the so-called operational issues which lead me to be sceptical about the prospect of a recovery. New laws in the African country made it increasingly difficult for one of Glencore’s biggest mines to be profitable. DRC is the world’s largest producer of cobalt but the introduction of a raft of smaller competitors has driven prices and profitability down. Value play Looking at Glencore’s dividend yield of 6.5% alongside a current P/E ratio of more than 9, there is certainly an argument to say that the stock represents a great value investment now at 235p. Considering other miners such as Rio Tinto and Anglo American offer yields of 5.5% and 4.2% respectively at current prices, as an income investment that argument is potentially stronger. However, Glencore is currently the subject of a number of ongoing investigations into alleged corruption in the countries where it has mines, which is harming its reputation and making it more and more difficult to do business there. The firm’s half-year results also included a write-down of around $350m due to the falling value of unsold inventory, which doesn’t fill me with confidence that it is prepared for potentially wide swings in commodity prices. While the very nature of the mining industry in which Glencore operates is quite cyclical, much of the pressure affecting the prices of cobalt and other commodities relates to ongoing geopolitical uncertainty. With US President Donald Trump continuing to slap extra trade tariffs on China and a variety of other issues weighing on the wider global economy, I don’t see that uncertainty coming to an end any time soon. That’s why I’d hold off on buying Glencore shares at this stage, at least until the prospect of steady long-term rises in commodity prices become a reality.
waldron: the motely fool Is the Glencore share price a buy after its latest surge? Tom Rodgers | Friday, 30th August, 2019 | More on: GLEN Diggers and trucks in a coal mine Image source: Getty Images. Mining giant Glencore (LSE:GLEN) is one of the most traded stocks on the FTSE 100, but is there a buy-in chance for value investors? Investments in copper and coal have been paying off for the Glencore share price, which is trending upwards after falling 30% this year. Bag a bargain? The Glencore share price will go into ex-dividend on 5 September so investors may be tempted to invest now to benefit from a plump 3.6% interim dividend. Shareholders were rewarded with a $2.9bn payout in 2018 and a planned special dividend of 10 cents will take this year’s payout to 20 cents per share. A yield of 6.5% on a trailing P/E ratio of 8.8 seems on the face of it to be a cracking investment. There are few FTSE 100 companies priced this cheaply that also offer high yields. The shares are also trading near to their 52-week low, which suggests GLEN could be a steal. But look beyond the headlines and there are serious causes for concern. Cycle, re-cyle Mining as an industry is cyclical with high outlay costs. It is also fragile to shocks and highly susceptible to falls in the market price for raw materials. Consider the sharp rise and fall of operating profits over the last five years. In 2014, Glencore’s operating profit was just over $5bn on revenues of $221bn. 2015 saw revenues plummet to $141bn, with the miner posting a $7bn operating loss. Across the following 12 months, revenues rose slightly to $152bn and operating profit was back in the black at $946m, although this was tempered by pre-tax losses of $549m. 2017 brought revenues back over $200bn with profits of $7.1bn. By the end of 2018, the firm’s revenue was up to $214bn, with operating profits lower at $5.1bn. These are not numbers any investor can reasonably rely on year to year. Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) — a measure of how well a company makes returns on the investments it makes — has also been extremely inconsistent for Glencore. Its ROCE was 5% in 2014, fell to 2% in 2015, gained to 8% by 2017 and dropped to 7% in 2018. If you follow my advice you’ll watch the best fund managers to see how they decide on stocks that bring in a reliable income over a long period of time. Fundsmith’s Terry Smith, for example, looks to buy companies that achieve ROCE of 25% or more. Good ROCE figures usually mean that top brass in a business is using capital efficiently to provide quality, long-term value for shareholders that is sustainable over time. I don’t think this is the case with Glencore at all. Legal troubles It has also attracted the scrutiny of lawmakers. News of a 2018 Department of Justice probe into its operations in Venezuela, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo has weighed heavily on the share price and the company confirmed in April 2019 it was under investigation by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Glencore set up an Investigations Committee last year to co-operate with regulators and this team will oversee its response to these cases. Buying Glencore appears to me to come with substantial risks. As a value investor, I’d avoid it.
grupo: Investomania Is the Glencore PLC share price a value trap? Could Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) face a challenging share price outlook? August 30, 2019 Robert Stephens, CFA Glencore (LON:GLEN) The Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) share price is currently among the lowest-rated companies I can find in the FTSE 100. It has a P/E ratio of around 7, which suggests to me that it offers a large margin of safety. Of course, the outlook for the world economy may mean that a margin of safety is warranted. Demand for a variety of commodities may fall over future years, and this could cause the financial performance of the business to come under pressure. Indeed, the company’s recent update highlighted some of the challenges it is facing across a variety of its assets and geographies. And, while Glencore has a diverse range of businesses, from my experience a slowdown in the growth outlook for the world economy is likely to hurt the wider commodities sector to a significant extent (except, perhaps, for the precious metals sector). Therefore, with the China/US trade war seemingly no closer to being solved, I’m expecting continued uncertainty and volatility across the commodity sector. This could hurt Glencore’s share price – particularly at a time when regulatory risks are high and it is seeking to refocus its business model on being relevant in an increasingly low-carbon world economy. On this front, I feel the business is making progress. Its plans to ramp-up production of materials used in electric vehicle batteries could provide it with a growth catalyst over the long run. And, although I think more economic turbulence could be ahead, ultimately I believe that the strength of emerging markets and the US economy could lead to a bright future for the world economy. Due to this, I’m optimistic about Glencore’s financial outlook. I feel that it may deserve a margin of safety at the moment, but that its current P/E ratio suggests that it could offer investment appeal at its price level.
the grumpy old men: Investomania Why I think the Glencore PLC share price could outperform the FTSE 100 Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) could deliver share price returns that are ahead of the FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE:UKX) in my view June 6, 2019 Robert Stephens, CFA Glencore (LON:GLEN) While the recent share price performance of Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) may have been highly disappointing, I think the company has a bright long-term future as a result of its low rating and overall strategy. The electric vehicles market could be a strong growth driver for those businesses that operate within it. After all, by 2030, 30% of global vehicle sales are expected to be of electric vehicles. This suggests that their growth rate could pick up as their range improves and the infrastructure required to complete longer journeys with a quick charge becomes more readily available. Glencore’s move to ramp-up production of commodities such as nickel and lithium, which are key components of the batteries used in electric vehicles, could provide it with a significant tailwind over the long run in my opinion. Given that the company has experienced challenging news flow of late, in terms of regulatory risks, it is not a major surprise to me that the stock has recorded a decline in value. This, though, now means that it may offer a larger margin of safety, with it trading on a P/E ratio of around 6.7 at the present time. This indicates to me that its risk to reward ratio may be favourable, since investors may have priced in the short-term risks faced by the business. Therefore, while I’m upbeat about the prospects for the FTSE 100 over the long run, I feel that the Glencore share price could offer FTSE 100-beating potential. While it may experience volatility in the near term, I think that it has growth potential as it pivots towards the electric vehicle industry. With a low rating, I believe that over the long run it could deliver impressive share price performance relative to its industry peers, as well as when compared to its FTSE 100 index peers.
sarkasm: INVESTOMANIA Is Glencore PLC’s share price set to beat the FTSE 100? Could Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) deliver an improving share price outlook? April 18, 2019 Robert Stephens Glencore (LON:GLEN) Improving investor sentiment towards the wider FTSE 100 may have helped to push the Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) share price higher since the start of the year. With investors now seemingly more positive about the prospects for the world economy, the resources stock has risen by around 12% since the turn of the year. In my view, while there could be risks and uncertainty ahead for the company and the wider sector, I’m nevertheless optimistic about its long-term outlook. It seems to have a sound strategy to my mind, as well as a low valuation. Resources sector prospects In the near term, it wouldn’t surprise me if the resources sector experiences a period of volatility. Economic data being released by China has been relatively weak of late in some respects, with its GDP growth rate expected to slow further over the medium term. There has also been weak data released in the US. This could indicate that its economic growth rate may slow, which would be bad news for the world economy. However, it may also mean that planned interest rate rises are slower than previously expected. This could lessen the cost of servicing debt for emerging market economies, while also potentially making a variety of commodities less expensive in local currencies. As a result, I feel that the economic outlook for the world economy is uncertain at the moment. This could mean that Glencore and other resources sector companies experience a volatile period, with their share prices potentially being impacted by more cautious investors in the short run. Share price growth potential With Glencore having made a variety of changes to its business model over recent years, I think the company is in a strong position to deliver EPS growth. It has reduced debt, while also making its business more efficient. These changes could help it to overcome the potential volatility that may be present in the resources industry. Glencore has also sought to focus to an increasing extent on the electric vehicle marketplace. I think this is a good idea, since I expect sales of electric vehicles to continue to rise – particularly as they are likely to fall in price relative to petrol cars as the cost of production is shared among a wider base of vehicles. Valuation Since the Glencore share price trades on a P/E ratio of 8.5, I think that it offers a large margin of safety at the moment. This could mean that it is able to deliver improving share price performance over the long run, with it seeming to trade at a larger discount to its intrinsic value than a number of other FTSE 100 resources shares. Although it may be volatile in the near term, I think the company’s strategy is sound. As a result, after strong gains since the turn of the year, I’m optimistic about the prospects for the stock over the long run.
grupo guitarlumber: Https:// Glencore [GLEN] share price set to profit from energy storage boom Analysts are hot on Swiss mining behemoth, Glencore, with a majority holding ‘buy’ ratings on the stock as it increases its production of minerals used in electric batteries. By Opto 04 Mar 2019, 08:50 GMT With a $54bn market cap and $8.3bn in profits for the first-half of 2018, Glencore [GLEN] is the largest mining company in the world by revenue. The firm’s share price has had a solid start to 2019, gaining over 10%. However, it is currently trading 25% off its 2018 high reached in January. After an initial upwards sprint at the start of last year, despite some fluctuations, H1 was largely consistent for the stock. Powered by CMC Markets, as at 01 March 2019 But things changed in July 2018 after the mining giant was hit by a money laundering probe from the US Department of Justice, sending its share price south by as much as 19% over the week ensuing. The company was dragged into the Brazilian car wash investigation by the end of the year as well. In an effort to keep investors and traders on side, Glencore switched its focus from deal making to a share buyback programme that saw it repurchase up to $1bn of stock in July and, another $1bn in December. Its dividend also tripled year-on-year, rising to $0.10 for both halves of 2018. $0.10 Glencore dividend in both halves of 2018 The decline in the company’s share price has meant that the stock currently offers a forward dividend yield of 5.26% and a price to earnings ratio of 6.91, which is attracting the attention of analysts with 12 out of 22 financial institutions holding ‘buy’ ratings for the stock. Since its IPO of 531.10p in 2011, Glencore’s share price has fallen 41%, it trades at 307.00p (at the time of writing). Oil and gas underpin earnings growth The massive price swings and oversupply warnings in oil impacted Glencore’s crude production in 2018, as it fell by 8% to 4.6 million barrels. Coal production meanwhile was 7% higher than in 2017 at 129.4 million tonnes. The global commodities market as a whole was the best performing asset class in 2018 after oil prices were slashed. Commodity prices particularly rallied when the US Federal Reserve signalled a slowing of interest rate rises and a lowered risk of recession, pushing Goldman Sachs towards an ‘overweight’ rating for the sector. Goldman also said European commodities and mining equities were “attractively positioned,” expecting a 10% rate of return in 2019. However, the suspense over the US-China trade talks continues to affect oil markets in the run up to 1 March. 10% Goldman's expected rate of return for European commodities and mining equities in 2019 “Resumption of the US-China trade talks has prompted risk-appetite in financial markets, which has also manifested in oil prices gaining strength,” Abhishek Kumar, analyst at Interfax Energy, said. “Nevertheless, there needs to be a tangible outcome from the talks for a sustained rally in prices.” Glencore plans to capitalise on battery mineral growth Recently, Glencore has begun targeting the renewable energy trend in electric vehicles as a key growth driver. Rapid advances in battery chemistry and tumbling prices has seen the energy-storage market boom. The market is expected to attract $620bn in investment over the next 22 years. Glencore is working to position itself as a core supplier. Rechargeable batteries used in electric vehicles are primarily made up of nickel and zinc, which increased in production by 13% and 2% respectively in 2018. The company expects 25%, 30% and 133% growth by 2020 in its copper, nickel and cobalt production respectively. Glencore’s wider mining production meanwhile for 2018 saw copper 11% higher than in 2017, due to its Democratic Republic of Congo operations recommencing, which had a knock-on effect with its cobalt production that soared 54% higher than 2017 – the highest increase out of all its mineral sources. Market cap £42.07bn PE ratio (TTM) 12.76 EPS (TTM) 24.00 Payout ratio 83.81% Glencore stock vitals, Yahoo finance, as at 1 March 2019 Changing of the old guard CEO Ivan Glasenberg, who helped make the company into a dominant force in commodities trading while also becoming the face of the industry, is set to retire in the next three to five years. The exit of Glasenberg will mark a generational shift at the top as he looks for a younger CEO to take his spot. The leadership upheaval also signifies the company’s changing face as it transitions into new areas in a bid to attract new growth and a stronger share price performance.

maywillow: Does Glencore PLC have a bright investment outlook? Could Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) deliver an improving share price performance? December 31, 2018 Robert Stephens Glencore (LON:GLEN) Glencore PLC Glencore PLC The prospects for resources stocks such as Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) could be relatively uncertain in my view. The stock has experienced a challenging number of months, with its share price declining by 26% during the course of 2018. In the near term, I wouldn’t be surprised if there is continued volatility for the stock. The US interest rate is expected to rise three times next year according to my research, and this could put a number of resources shares under pressure. A higher US interest rate could make commodities that are priced in dollars more expensive, and this may impact negatively on demand over the medium term. Following its share price fall, Glencore now has a single-digit P/E ratio. This suggests to me that it may offer good value for money and could have recovery potential over the long run. I believe that its exposure to the raw materials that are used in the manufacture of electric vehicles could provide it with a tailwind in future years. Demand for cleaner methods of transportation could increase, and this could offer a growth area for the business. Alongside this, Glencore has improved its balance sheet in recent years according to my research. It has been able to reduce debt levels and cut costs. These measures could lead to improving financial prospects over future years in an era where a tighter US monetary policy may put pressure on the wider resources industry. Therefore, while potentially volatile in the near term, I believe that the company could offer long-term investment potential. It appears to have a sound strategy which has focused on improving its financial strength, while also investing in potential growth areas. Following its share price fall, it now seems to offer a margin of safety. As a result, I’m cautiously optimistic about its prospects over future years.

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.
