    BHP expect Chinese demand to stay high

    BHP Billiton chief executive Andrew Mackenzie says the mining giant is confident that demand from China will remain strong despite a drop-off in housing and automotive. Mr Mackenzie will tell BHP shareholders at the miner's annual general meeting that China's so-called Belt and Road initiative will keep infrastructure spending high. "The Communist Party's drive to improve safety and the environment, and the efficiency of their industry, especially steel, will result in high premiums for the superior quality of our iron ore, coal and copper concentrate," Mr Mackenzie is expected to say.

    Miners 'overvalued' in optimistic market

    Shares in mining giants Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton are overvalued because investors are "too optimistic" about future growth in demand for commodities, according to a sector analyst. MorningStar's Matthew Hodge has recommended investors reduce their stake in BHP and sell Rio, saying the recent uptick in commodity demand and prices is just a "cyclical upturn" driven by China's 2016 stimulus. The renewed activity from China has helped push BHP and Rio into a strong recovery from steep falls in February 2016, when shares dropped to $14.27 and $37.03, respectively.

    Elliott Responds to BHP’s ‘Do Nothing’ Approach to Unlocking Shareholder Value by Encouraging Management to ‘Think Big’

    HONG KONG--(BUSINESSWIRE)-- May 16, 2017--Elliott today responded to the directors of BHP Billiton’s ‘do nothing’ approach to unlocking substantial additional value for its shareholders – reinforcing a call for shareholders worldwide to demand a halt to chronic underperformance at BHP. The response follows BHP’s swift dismissal of Elliott’s comprehensive Shareholder Value Unlock Plan proposals published on April 10, 2017, which offered a range of solutions to increase value and improve capital returns to shareholders. In documents released today, Elliott shows total shareholder returns at BHP have substantially underperformed Rio Tinto, a comparable portfolio, as well as the ASX 200, the FTSE 100 and the S&P 500 over the year to date and for the last two, three, four, five, six, seven and eight years.

    Miner BHP Billiton rebrands as BHP

    Miner BHP Billiton on Monday announced it would drop the name Billiton in a re-branding exercise to build its standing as a major Australian company rather than a multinational giant. The world's biggest miner's Australian roots stretch back to the Broken Hill Proprietary Company which began operations in the Outback in 1885. It opened head offices in Melbourne the same year, but became BHP Billiton in a merger with the South African company that bore that name in 2001.
