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)
