What are analysts saying about Vale S.A. stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Vale S.A. stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the last three months, Vale’s shares underperformed the Zacks categorized steel industry return. Over the last 30 days, Zacks Consensus Estimate for the stock has moved south for both 2017 and 2018. The company reported weaker-than-expected first-quarter 2017 earnings. Anticipated decline in Chinese steel demand is expected to affect near-term iron-ore prices and hence hurt Vale’s profitability in the upcoming quarters. Moreover, stiff rivalry in the mining industry, sudden outbreak of any natural disaster or unfavorable government policies might hurt results in the quarters ahead. " (5/29/2017)
- 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Vale reported solid iron ore production results yesterday, with 2016 production of 348.8mt slightly exceeding prior guidance. Copper (ex. 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)

Consensus Ratings for Vale S.A. (NYSE:VALE) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
