Morningstar | Bulks Defying Longer-Term Risks but Sell-Off in Base Metals and Gold Sees Pockets of Value

We still see significant risks for the miners and think the stocks overall are overvalued. Buoyant commodity and share prices do not reflect the inevitable shift in China’s economic growth towards less commodity consuming activities, and the market has taken too much comfort from the stimulus-fuelled recovery. The underlying sources of instability--poor quality lending in China and growing leverage are yet to be addressed. We see the greatest overvaluation among the bulk miners--those exposed to iron ore, coking coal, and thermal coal. Prices for those commodities remain elevated. We still se...

Morningstar | Rio Tinto is the world's lowest-cost iron ore miner, but boomtime investment diluted returns.

Like its peer BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto has ridden the commodity supercycle since the early 2000s. Rio Tinto's asset portfolio is less diversified, with iron ore generating the majority of its value. Aluminium and copper are moderate contributors with thermal and coking coal operations sold off in 2018. Aluminium should constitute a substantially larger share, given the USD 40 billion that Rio Tinto controversially paid for Alcan in 2007, but much of that investment is money gone to heaven. Rio has the lowest operating costs of all the iron ore players, but despite this being the bulk of company...

Analyse court terme - RIO TINTO : La tendance est haussière.

La tendance est haussière. Les cours progressent encore, mais la tendance s'affaiblit. La prochaine résistance est à 3 927,50 p. La rupture de 3 403,00 p mettrait la tendance en danger.

Jérôme VINERIER

Short term view - RIO TINTO : The trend is bullish.

The trend is bullish. Prices are still making progress but the trend is slowing down. The next resistance is at 3,927.50 p. The break of 3,403.00 p would endanger the trend.

Jérôme VINERIER

Short term view - RIO TINTO : Rising consolidation.

The background trend is clearly bearish. The negative MACD confirms the trend. The rise is a consolidation that will soon bump against the level at 3,927.50 p. The next target is at 3,403.00 p, then 3,207.00 p. Passing 4,190.00 p would question the continuation of the fall.

Jérôme VINERIER

Analyse court terme - RIO TINTO : La reprise est une consolidation.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse. Le MACD est négatif, il confirme cette tendance. La reprise est une consolidation qui va buter sur 3 927,50 p prochainement. Le prochain objectif est à 3 403,00 p, puis 3 207,00 p. Le franchissement de 4 190,00 p remettrait en cause la suite de la baisse.

Valérie GASTALDY

Medium term view - RIO TINTO : The trend is bullish.

The trend is bullish. The recent fall is getting more vigorous. The next support is at 3,435.00 p. A break below 3,435.00 p would challenge the trend.
