However, the company reported strong fourth-quarter 2016 production results, on the back of increased yield of certain major mines and greater operational efficacy. Also, Vale is boosting its revenues and profitability on higher selling prices pellets and iron ore fines as well as lower costs. Even so, the commencement of new projects is expected to generate benefits in the quarters ahead. Over the last 30 days, Zacks Consensus Estimate for the stock has been revised upwards for 2017. On the flip side, overall weakness in the prices of most metals, intense competition or sudden mining or exploration accidents might limit growth." (2/18/2017)

Lubambe) and nickel production for the year were slightly below guidance. Vale expects to increase its production of iron ore to 360-380Mt, copper to 470kt, and nickel to 317kt in 2017. Further commodity price strength and higher volumes should lead to strong FCF growth for Vale." (2/17/2017)
