Freeport Looks Solid as Long-Awaited Supply Disruption HitsFreeport Freeport-McMoRan (FCX), the leading US-based copper miner, has been strong this year. The stock has seen upwards price action of 27.5% so far in the year based on its closing prices
It’s only a few months ago that the world’s biggest commodity trader was promoting coal as – don’t laugh – a viable part of global emissions-reduction plans. Now Glencore Plc, the largest supplier of thermal coal to the international market, is promising to cap production for the foreseeable future at around current levels of 145 million metric tons a year, David Stringer of Bloomberg News reported Wednesday. Anglo American Plc attempted to sell all its coal assets during its abortive restructuring in 2016, but gave up because no one was willing to buy them at a price it found acceptable.
The global iron ore market has been thrown upside down by the tragedy, after Vale was forced to shutter operations and the Brazilian government said it’s banning certain types of dams used to hold mining waste. While rival producers such as BHP and Rio Tinto Group might be expected to fill the gap, they’ve got little room to respond after focusing in recent years on maximizing profits rather than increasing volumes. BHP is operating its Australian iron ore operations at full strength and doesn’t expect changes as a result of the January incident, Chief Executive Officer Andrew Mackenzie told reporters on a call Tuesday.

Cleveland-Cliffs' (CLF) Q4 results gain from higher steel pricing and pellet premiums. However, adjusted earnings missed the consensus mark.
The outlook for mining companies is still upbeat even if economic growth slows, although it pays to be choosy, according to Goldman Sachs.
Q4 Earnings: Why Cleveland-Cliffs’ Upside Could Be Far from Over(Continued from Prior Part)Vale’s dam burst On January 25, a major disaster struck Vale (VALE) when a dam ruptured at its iron ore mine in the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil (EWZ)
Chinese steel mills may be forced to modify the way they operate as a result of lower availability of higher grades of iron ore after the collapse of a dam at a mine owned by Brazil's Vale. The exact ramifications to iron ore supply and China's vast steel sector from the burst dam at Vale's Corrego do Feijao mine, which has killed 142 people and left 194 others missing, are still to be quantified. Supply-wise, it's likely to run into tens of millions of tonnes of high-grade iron ore lost from the seaborne market, with some estimates reaching as high as 70 million tonnes.
China is the world's largest consumer of copper, accounting for nearly half of its global demand, and China is the world's largest economy, ergo the name Doctor Copper. The mystery lies in the distinction between actual tight market fundamentals vs. the perceived global economic collapse if trade talks between the U.S. and China did break down. There is a significant correlation between China's Manufacturing PMI and the price of copper.

Full-year results from Plus500 showed revenue up 65 per cent to $720m on a 20 per cent higher cost base, resulting in profit nearly doubling to $503m.
Iron ore, once a very keenly traded bulk commodity, has been quite boring for the past year, as prices in 2018 averaged between $60-$70 a ton -- closing at around $71 a ton, down around 3.5% for the year. Today, the price of iron ore has jumped to a two-year high above $90 a ton after Vale, the world's top producer of the raw material used to make steel, was ordered to stop production at its mines following a horrific dam collapse in Brazil last month. Iron ore is up 20% so far this year and is one of the best performers in the commodity spectrum.
