waldron: Investomania Home Investing Articles FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE: UKX) FTSE 250 (INDEXFTSE: MCX) Why I’m optimistic about FTSE 100 shares SSE, Shell and Rio Tinto I think these 3 FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE:UKX) shares could deliver improving returns: SSE PLC (LON:SSE) (SSE.L), Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSB) (RDSB.L) and Rio Tinto plc (LON:RIO) (RIO.L) February 5, 2020 Robert Stephens, CFA FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE: UKX), Rio Tinto (LON:RIO), Shell (LON: RDSB) (RDSB.L) (RDSB.LON), SSE (LON: SSE) (SSE.L) (SSE.LON) SSE PLC SSE PLC FTSE 100 stocks SSE PLC (LON:SSE) (SSE.L), Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSB) (RDSB.L) and Rio Tinto plc (LON:RIO) (RIO.L) could offer long-term growth potential in my view. I’m not normally optimistic about utility stocks owing to their slow pace of growth, but I think SSE could deliver an improving financial performance. Its switch towards renewables could help it to transition to what is likely to become an increasingly ‘green’ UK economy in my view. SSE’s share price has risen over the past few months. It gained on the general election victory and without the threat of nationalisation, I feel that investor sentiment may improve. Global economic risks could make utility shares more attractive to investors, and may help to increase demand for SSE stock over future months. Shell has struggled alongside many of its sector peers with low gas prices. They are showing little sign of mounting a strong recovery to my mind, so I’m expecting further challenges for the business in the short run. Still, Shell has a solid growth strategy to my mind. It is reducing the debt on its balance sheet, which could cause its overall risk to fall. It is also aiming to improve its free cash flow, which may help to sustain dividend growth in the long run to my mind. Rio Tinto also faces uncertain operating conditions. A potential slowdown in China, which is the biggest iron ore market in the world, could hurt the company’s progress and expose what I consider to be its major weakness. This is its lack of diversification, since the company is still heavily reliant on iron ore for its sales. Rio Tinto has been able to strengthen its balance sheet over the past few years, and I think this could help it to overcome potential risks facing the global economy. Its P/E ratio of around 10 suggests to me that it may offer good value for money at the moment.

sarkasm: Should you buy BHP, Rio Tinto, or Saracen Mineral shares? James Mickleboro | February 2, 2020 12:52pm | More on: BHP RIO SAR Rio Tinto share price I think that having a little exposure to the resources sector would be a very good thing for a portfolio. This is because as well as offering the benefits of diversification, I believe there are strong potential returns on offer in the sector again this year. But which resources shares should you buy? Here are three that I would consider buying: BHP Group Ltd (ASX: BHP) I think BHP would be a good option for investors looking for exposure to the resources sector. This is due to the mining giant’s portfolio of assets that are amongst the highest quality in the world. Thanks to their low costs and favourable commodity prices, these assets have been generating significant free cash flow for BHP. The majority of which has been returned to shareholders through dividends and buybacks. As long as the coronavirus doesn’t curtail global economic growth, I feel confident there will be more of the same in FY 2020 and FY 2021. Rio Tinto Limited (ASX: RIO) Another top option to consider in the resources sector is Rio Tinto. It also owns a number of world class assets across several different commodities. This has allowed the mining giant to generate strong free cash flow over the last few years. And as with BHP, it has returned the majority of it to shareholders through dividends and buybacks. If iron ore prices remain favourable in the near term, I expect Rio Tinto to be in a position to reward shareholders with generous dividends again in 2020. Saracen Mineral Holdings Limited (ASX: SAR) If you’re looking for exposure to the gold industry, then I think Saracen Mineral could be a great option. This is due to its attractive valuation, strong performance in FY 2019, and its very positive medium term outlook. In respect to the latter, a note out of Goldman Sachs reveals that it believes Saracen Mineral has the most compelling production and earnings growth profile under its coverage. It has forecast production of >800,000 ounces by FY 2024. This will be a material increase on the 500,000 ounces it expects to produce in FY 2020. It isn't just Saracen which has been given a buy ratings by analysts. Here are five more buy-rated shares for February. NEW. The Best Stocks to Buy in February. Our Motley Fool experts have just released a fantastic report, detailing 5 dirt cheap shares that you can buy in 2020.

sarkasm: forbes Dec 8, 2019, 08:39pm Back To The Chopping Block For Top Miners, BHP And Rio Tinto Tim Treadgold Tim Treadgold Contributor Asia Asset sales and capital returns made the world’s top two mining companies, BHP and Rio Tinto, investment stars until mid-year when trade-war tensions turned them into losers, but a six-month downturn could be ending with a possible re-start of the asset selling process. Until June, both companies had delivered impressive, and almost mirror image share price performances, up 175% over the preceding three-and-a-half years. Credit for the price rises was shared by strong profits in iron ore, the major business units of both BHP and Rio Tinto, along with heavy-duty asset disposals that included BHP selling its onshore U.S. oil and gas interests and Rio Tinto exiting the thermal (electricity generating) coal business. $31 billion In Asset Sales Coal Stockpiles At The Newcastle Coal Terminal As Slump Seen Ending On Deal At Four-Year Low Steam surrounds bucket wheel reclaimers as they operate at the Newcastle Coal Terminal in Newcastle, ... [+]Ian Waldie/Bloomberg Between them, the two big Anglo-Australian miners, disposed of an estimated $31 billion in surplus assets and returned $89 billion in capital to shareholders between 2004 and 2018. Not much has been sold this year but, if a fresh research report by Jefferies Research Services is correct, the sales process could resume in 2020 as the two companies clean up their smaller operations. In theory, according to Jefferies, there could be another $20 to $25 billion to be generated from disposing of assets no longer regarded as core with potential capital returns enhancing total shareholder returns (TSR). Today In: Asia “After five years of consolidation non-core assets remain in BHP’s and Rio Tinto’s portfolios,” Jefferies said in a report headed: “Focus to shift back to divestment tail.” More Sales To Boost TSR PROMOTED Grads of Life BrandVoice | Paid Program How To Build A Culture Of High Expectations Sonos Cyber Monday: Best Deals On Sonos One And Sonos Beam Civic Nation BrandVoice | Paid Program Growing The College Student Vote Jefferies said with balance sheets re-based, operating cashflow elevated, proceeds from divestment will continue to support near-term (financial) multiples and TSR via capital returns. Because there have been few asset sales this year investors have tended to overlook the potential for capital returns from a fresh wave of disposals. “Understandably, the market’s focus on asset sales has diminished,” Jefferies said. “However, with an expected improvement in macro conditions in 2020 and easing of trade tensions (our base case) we anticipate a tail of divestments will come into focus.” High on the next wave of disposals are BHP’s thermal coal business which would bring it into line with Rio Tinto with both companies under pressure from fund managers and climate change activists to quit mining the most polluting of fossil fuels. Stacks of newly moulded aluminum ingots. Stacks of newly moulded aluminum ingots sit in a storage area before distribution.Oliver Bunic/Bloomberg Rio Tinto’s next move in cleaning up its asset base could be the disposal of non-core aluminum assets which are battling high energy costs and a low metal price, as well as the sale of an iron ore business in Canada which is a fraction the size of its giant Australian mines. But there could be a lot more offered, or which might attract an inquisitive buyer. BHP has a number of relatively small oil and gas assets which could easily find a buyer, including a 25% stake in the Scarborough liquefied natural gas project in the north-west of Australia which could fetch $1.27 billion, 45% of an oil and gas project in Trinidad and Tobago which could sell for $1.1 billion, and a half share in the troubled Samarco iron ore mine in Brazil which could be sold for $1.2 billion. Nickel And Potash Could Be Sold Other assets mentioned by Jefferies for possible, but unlikely sales, included the Nickel West business in Australia for $950 million, a stake in the controversial Jansen potash project in Canada for $762 million, and a 25% stake in the Olympic Dam copper mine in Australia for $585 million. Though some potential asset disposals are described as unlikely, Jefferies sees the potential for BHP to generate $12.3 billion in the sale of surplus assets, enabling it to concentrate on its core businesses of iron ore, copper, steel-making coal and oil. Iron ore pellets, a key ingredient of steel, are piled into a mound Iron ore pellets, a key ingredient of steel, are piled into a mound at a plant in Canada.Cole Burston/Bloomberg Rio Tinto has a longer list of sales in three categories, likely possible and unlikely, totaling $11.6 billion. Top of the list is a 59% interest in the Iron Ore Company of Canada which Jefferies values at $3.2 billion with a sale rated as likely. A string of aluminum smelters and alumina refineries are listed, along with the company’s California borates business, two diamond mines and an industrial salt business in Australia. “We expect the divestments could improve the return on capital employed (ROCE) by 1% to 3%,” Jefferies said. The bank rates Rio Tinto a buy and BHP a hold.

the grumpy old men: What I’d do about the Rio Tinto and Fresnillo share prices today Alan Oscroft | Wednesday, 23rd October, 2019 | More on: ANTO FRES RIO A miner down a mine shaft Image source: Getty Images. Overlooked by the headlines, some share prices in the mining sector have been creeping up. Over the past five years, while the FTSE 100 has gained a modest 10%, Rio Tinto (LSE: RIO) shares are up 37%. And while dividends can be erratic due to the cyclical nature of the sector, Rio’s have been climbing strongly and forecasts suggest a yield of 8.6% for the current year. That’s way better than the predicted overall Footsie yield of 4.8%, but a lot of that will be due to the shares’ low forward P/E rating of just eight after the price has fallen back a little in recent months. The downwards pressure is coming from fears over falling demand as global economic weakness could well hurt the commodities market in 2020 and beyond. China, in particular, has reported a slowing of economic growth to 6% in the three months to 30 September, from 6.2% But a growth rate of 6% is something many a developed economy can only dream of. And the fact Chinese growth has been slowing for a couple of decades is only to be expected as that country matures further. It seems like only yesterday I was reading about Chinese growth dropping below 9% amid fears of a ‘hard landing’ for its economy — which still hasn’t happened. Copper bottomed Any downturn in China might be expected to affect Antofagasta (LSE: ANTO) too. But its focus on copper has helped keep its share valuation buoyant and we’re looking at a forward P/E of 19 (and a modest dividend yield of 2.5%). The company’s Q3 production report Wednesday was opened by CEO Iván Arriagada, who spoke of “another quarter of strong production underpinned by a consistent operating performance, which together with higher grades at some of our operations, contributed to year to date copper volumes of 584,200 tonnes which are 16% higher than the same period in 2018.” Production costs are falling, and the firm expects full-year production growth in line with previous guidance. The fact that the firm also produces gold can’t have hurt, as Brexit-scared investors are helping to push up the price of that otherwise essentially useless shiny stuff. Antofagasta produced 226,600 ounces of gold year-to-date, up 88.7% on the previous year. Silver plated Meanwhile, at silver producer Fresnillo (LSE: FRES), CEO Octavio Alvídrez spoke of the company’s Q3 production, saying: “While grades remain variable, we are now processing higher volumes of ore on a more consistent basis.” Year-to-date total silver production actually declined 11.8%, at 40,839 koz, with gold down 7% at 642,169 oz — but that’s still a lot of ounces of both. The period was affected by “taking actions to address maintenance performance, contractor productivity and equipment availability.” Work currently being undertaken should hopefully help stabilise grades and boost overall volumes. After a huge surge in 2016, the Fresnillo share price has since been steadily declining, and has lost two thirds of its value since an August peak that year. But even after that, forecasts still put the shares on a forward P/E multiple of 31 for the full year. A 29% earnings rise indicated for 2020 would drop that, but only as far as 25, and dividends are set to yield only around 2%. I think mining shares are great for long-term, if variable, income, but I’d buy on the down cycle. High-Yield Hidden Star?

waldron: MOTELYFOOL Iron ore miners tumble: Are Fortescue, BHP and Rio Tinto a buy? Lina Lim | July 29, 2019 | More on: BHP FMG RIO Dominoes falling in a row The iron ore spot price has stabilised around the US$120 per tonne mark while the S&P/ASX 200 (INDEXASX: XJO) index has just passed 6,800. This is in stark contrast to the ASX iron ore miners, which have struggled on the news that the world’s largest miner, Vale SA, would resume production at its Vargem Grade complex. This news has resulted in the following price movements in the past week: BHP Group Ltd (ASX: BHP) share price down 1.07% to $40.56 (at time of writing) Fortescue Metals Group Ltd (ASX: FMG) share price down 4.6% to $8.30 (at time of writing) Rio Tinto Limited (ASX: RIO) share price down 4% to $98.26 (at time of writing) Is this a buy opportunity? The iron ore bull run is perhaps at its cross roads as Vale SA slowly returns to form. The Brazilian miner said that the move to Vargem Grade will add approximately 5 million tonnes to annual production. We’ve known for a long time that Vale has been awaiting supreme court approval for the resumption of production at several mine sites. Last month, Vale SA received court approval to enable the full resumption of wet processing operations at its Brucutu mine. Brucutu has an annual production capacity of approximately 30 metric tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of iron ore. This represents 8% of Value’s annual output. Fast forward to today, and the Vargem decision will enable the partial resumption of dry processing operations, which will total approximately 5 Mt of additional production in 2019. If we piece together the initial statistics of the Vale disaster that resulted in a loss of approximately 90 million tonnes of an annualised supply of around 1.7 billion tonnes, it appears as though the market is very slowly coming back to equilibrium. The plateauing bullish fundamentals overshadow Fortescue’s June 2019 quarterly production report, which highlight a 22% rise in total ore shipped while citing sustained strong demand from customers. Foolish takeaway I believe the recent falls in BHP, Rio Tinto and Fortescue share price are, to some degree, a market overreaction. However, I am going to make the bold call that the top is in for ASX iron ore miners. On one hand, demand side fundamentals remain robust and the supply–demand imbalance will continue to persist in the short term. But it is evident that the market is slowly creeping back to an equilibrium and I find it highly unlikely that ASX iron ore miners will break out their old highs.

the grumpy old men: Why the Rio Tinto share price is outperforming with the sector today Brendon Lau | June 14, 2019 | More on: BHP FMG RIO Race Many of the big ASX miners are outperforming the S&P/ASX 200 (Index:^AXJO) (ASX:XJO) index this morning after the price of iron ore hit a five-year high. The Platts Iron Ore Index, or IODEX, jumped to $US110.20 a tonne and has gained more than 50% since January, according to the Australian Financial Review. This pushed the Rio Tinto Limited (ASX: RIO) share price up nearly 2% to $103.82 this morning, while the BHP Group Ltd (ASX: BHP) share price added 1.1% to $40 and the Fortescue Metals Group Limited (ASX: FMG) share price surged 4.6% to $8.73. Iron ore in a seller’s market Worries about the supply of mainstream iron ore fines are reported to be behind the latest price surge and traders are expecting tight supply in July and August. It’s a seller’s market – at least in the short-term with some analysts predicting the price of the commodity could jump to US$120 a tonne by August. The strength of the steel making ingredient is defying the gloom cast over the Chinese economy from the ongoing trade spat between the US and China. This is largely based on two factors. The Chinese government may step up infrastructure construction to offset the slowing economy and that means greater demand for steel. The other factor is that profit margins for Chinese steel mills are still reasonably healthy. These mills will keep buying iron ore to produce steel as long as they can make a buck! Risk of a price correction in the second half But not everyone is a bull. Some analysts, including those from Citigroup, point out that profit margins of these mills are under pressure and have become razor thin in recent times and that the supply of residential property is outstripping demand, which leads to a real risk that steel production could fall in the second half of this calendar year. This isn’t a given so it’s probably a little premature to be selling off all your holdings in iron ore stocks. The high price of the commodity also gives me some comfort as it provides room for a fall without necessarily triggering a consensus profit downgrade cycle for these stocks. Foolish takeaway Many analysts have assumed an iron ore price that’s materially under US$100 a tonne, so even if the ore price were to fall 20% from its expected peak, that shouldn’t impact much, if at all, on share valuations. On the flipside, if iron ore prices stay higher for longer (and it seems to have a bit of a history of remaining stubbornly high) or if it only dips modestly, shares in our major iron ore producers can enjoy a consensus profit upgrade instead. But iron ore stocks aren’t the only group with a promising outlook. The experts at the Motley Fool have uncovered some gems that are well placed to outperform in 2019.

la forge: A Deeper Look into the Quant Scorecard For: Rio Tinto Group (LSE:RIO), UBS Group AG (SWX:UBSG) Written by John Wilkes × June 9, 2019 There are many different tools to determine whether a company is profitable or not. One of the most popular ratios is the “Return on Assets” (aka ROA). This score indicates how profitable a company is relative to its total assets. The Return on Assets for Rio Tinto Group (LSE:RIO) is 0.142469. This number is calculated by dividing net income after tax by the company’s total assets. A company that manages their assets well will have a higher return, while a company that manages their assets poorly will have a lower return. Creating a diversified stock portfolio is one way that investors may combat the unknown. Appropriate levels of risk that include different market scenarios might vary from one individual investor to the next. Investors may need to careful that they do not become too reliant on one big position. When that position is producing returns, it can be easy to assume that the holding will continue to produce positive results. If the portfolio is weighted too heavily on one or two big positions, an overall market downturn may send the investor reeling. Finding that proper portfolio balance is typically what dedicated investors strive for. Taking a step further we can take a look at various other valuation metrics. Rio Tinto Group (LSE:RIO) has a Price to Book ratio of 2.146671. This ratio is calculated by dividing the current share price by the book value per share. Investors may use Price to Book to display how the market portrays the value of a stock.

The P/E ratio is one of the most common ratios used for figuring out whether a company is overvalued or undervalued. The Free Cash Flor Yield 5yr Average is calculated by taking the five year average free cash flow of a company, and dividing it by the current enterprise value. Enterprise Value is calculated by taking the market capitalization plus debt, minority interest and preferred shares, minus total cash and cash equivalents. The average FCF of a company is determined by looking at the cash generated by operations of the company. The Free Cash Flow Yield 5 Year Average of Rio Tinto Group (LSE:RIO) is 0.049266. The Return on Invested Capital (aka ROIC) for Rio Tinto Group (LSE:RIO) is 0.163431. The Return on Invested Capital is a ratio that determines whether a company is profitable or not. It tells investors how well a company is turning their capital into profits. The ROIC is calculated by dividing the net operating profit (or EBIT) by the employed capital. The employed capital is calculated by subrating current liabilities from total assets. Similarly, the Return on Invested Capital Quality ratio is a tool in evaluating the quality of a company’s ROIC over the course of five years. The ROIC Quality of Rio Tinto Group (LSE:RIO) is 3.920713. This is calculated by dividing the five year average ROIC by the Standard Deviation of the 5 year ROIC.

Rio Tinto Group (LSE:RIO) presently has a current ratio of 1.92. The current ratio, also known as the working capital ratio, is a liquidity ratio that displays the proportion of current assets of a business relative to the current liabilities. The ratio is simply calculated by dividing current liabilities by current assets. The ratio may be used to provide an idea of the ability of a certain company to pay back its liabilities with assets. Typically, the higher the current ratio the better, as the company may be more capable of paying back its obligations. In terms of value, Rio Tinto Group (LSE:RIO) has a Value Composite score of 24. Developed by James O’Shaughnessy, the VC score uses five valuation ratios. These ratios are price to earnings, price to cash flow, EBITDA to EV, price to book value, and price to sales. The VC is displayed as a number between 1 and 100. In general, a company with a score closer to 0 would be seen as undervalued, and a score closer to 100 would indicate an overvalued company. Adding a sixth ratio, shareholder yield, we can view the Value Composite 2 score which is currently sitting at 16. Quant Ranks (ERP5, Gross Margin, F Score) The ERP5 Rank is an investment tool that analysts use to discover undervalued companies. The ERP5 looks at the Price to Book ratio, Earnings Yield, ROIC and 5 year average ROIC. The ERP5 of Rio Tinto Group (LSE:RIO) is 4487. The lower the ERP5 rank, the more undervalued a company is thought to be. The Piotroski F-Score is a scoring system between 1-9 that determines a firm’s financial strength. The score helps determine if a company’s stock is valuable or not. The Piotroski F-Score of Rio Tinto Group (LSE:RIO) is 7. A score of nine indicates a high value stock, while a score of one indicates a low value stock. The score is calculated by the return on assets (ROA), Cash flow return on assets (CFROA), change in return of assets, and quality of earnings. It is also calculated by a change in gearing or leverage, liquidity, and change in shares in issue. The score is also determined by change in gross margin and change in asset turnover. Investors may be interested in viewing the Gross Margin score on shares of Rio Tinto Group (LSE:RIO). The name currently has a score of 40.00000. This score is derived from the Gross Margin (Marx) stability and growth over the previous eight years. The Gross Margin score lands on a scale from 1 to 100 where a score of 1 would be considered positive, and a score of 100 would be seen as negative.

This is calculated by taking the current share price and dividing by the share price one month ago. If the ratio is greater than 1, then that means there has been an increase in price over the month. If the ratio is less than 1, then we can determine that there has been a decrease in price. Similarly, investors look up the share price over 12 month periods. The Price Index 12m for Rio Tinto Group (LSE:RIO) is 1.11648. Price Range 52 Weeks Some of the best financial predictions are formed by using a variety of financial tools.

grupo: BHP, Fortescue, & Rio Tinto higher as iron ore prices surge again James Mickleboro | May 27, 2019 | More on: BHP FMG MGX RIO ASX iron ore miners Although the market has had a subdued start to the week, that hasn’t stopped Australia’s leading iron ore producers from storming higher this morning. In morning trade the iron ore industry has been one of the best performing areas of the market thanks to yet another rise in the price of the base metal. Here’s the state of play at the time of writing: The BHP Group Ltd (ASX: BHP) share price is up 1.5% to $38.00. The Fortescue Metals Group Limited (ASX: FMG) share price has pushed 1.6% higher to $8.35. The Mount Gibson Iron Limited (ASX: MGX) share price has climbed 2.5% to $1.28. The Rio Tinto Limited (ASX: RIO) share price is 1.5% higher to $102.76. What happened with iron ore prices? Iron ore prices continued their rise on Friday and closed in on five-year highs. According to Metal Bulletin, the price of the benchmark 62% fines rose 1.5% to US$105.32 a tonne, leaving it trading within a whisker of its five-year high of US$105.78 a tonne. Gains were also made by both lower and higher grade ore. The price of the lower grade 58% fines rose 0.3% to finish the week at US$87.02 a tonne, whereas the higher grade 65% fines closed the week with a 0.7% gain to US$119.30 a tonne. What’s next for iron ore prices? The good news for shareholders of these miners is that all signs are pointing to further gains today after Chinese iron ore futures finished the week on a very strong note. In fact, futures contracts closed the week at a record high thanks to increasing demand from Chinese steel producers after a production ramp up and declines in stockpiles at Chinese ports. If this leads to further increases in iron ore prices this week, it wouldn’t be at all surprising to see the likes of BHP, Fortescue, and Rio Tinto continue their charge higher.

kenmitch: christh But there is no evidence that the BT share price rise was because of the buybacks is there? Lot of shares go up (and down) a lot and the main drivers are buying and selling (obviously) and then news and results etc. Have you ever read the detailed research from Morgan Stanley on share buybacks? They found that time and again companies buying back their shares subsequently saw their share prices underperform others in the same sector that had not bought back. Rio have bought back heavily in the past and at times close to the peaks of long ago, and they too provided no protection for the share price when commodity prices fell. It really is a fallacy that share buyback = higher share price. Also you use the word "will" as though a Rio share price rise is a certainty. You use that word both in support of your case for buybacks and also because of Rio's current tactics. I happen to agree that for the reasons you give the share price is likely to rise, but it is not a certainty. And when I last checked Goldman Sachs had Rio as a conviction sell. I don't agree but the fact that some are negative means rarely is a share certain to go up. The Rio share price is likely to move up and down with others in the sector buybacks or no buybacks. When news from China improves and when the price of iron ore recovers THEN the Rio share price is likely to do very well. You can then claim that the buybacks were partly behind the rise. I would claim that Rio's and BHP's tactics now of not cutting back production is hitting higher producers hard and will likely mean both their share prices doing very well in time. You say that too so why the need to buy back their shares? Isn't it better to increase the dividend instead as a higher yield can mean more investing in Rio including big income funds.
