Investor Insights

This summary was created by AI, based on 6 opinions in the last 12 months.

The experts have mixed reviews about Rio Tinto. While some believe that it is struggling due to the weakness in China's economy, others see it as a low-cost leader in the iron ore space with strong copper assets. The company generates a lot of free cash and has a reasonable development pipeline, but traders may perceive near-term weakness due to China's outlook. However, it has been upgraded, and it is trading at a discount, offering a high dividend and potential upside. Overall, Rio Tinto seems to have strong assets with good potential for growth, but its performance may be affected by external factors such as the Chinese economy and commodity prices.

Rio Tinto

Is struggling given perceived weakness of China's economy. He's owned this a long time and won't sell it. RIO generates a lot of free cash, has a reasonable development pipeline, a great iron business and a good copper business. But traders may see near-term weakness given China's outlook.

BUY
Rio Tinto

Low-cost leader in the iron ore space, with copper assets and a nice distribution.

Rio Tinto
Upgraded today

It's trading as if iron ore were at $60, so the stock is overly discounted. Pays a huge 7.2% dividend, which pays you a lot alone. Upside is ahead.

BUY
Rio Tinto

Mainly iron ore, but also copper. Good assets in a lower cost jurisdiction. World-class. Variable dividend based on earnings. Tons of free cashflow. Looking to expand copper, a big growth driver for the next decade. Still cheap. Lots of years left for good returns in the sector.

A UK company, leveraged to the China reopening and shares are cheap.

PAST TOP PICK
Rio Tinto
(A Top Pick Feb 09/22, Down 2%)

It has pulled back recently so you could buy it here. He likes the dividend and its participation in commodity prices. We are in a commodity cycle.

BUY
Rio Tinto
Followed the trend of buying back shares, increasing dividend, divesting non-core assets. These companies are in much better shape financially than ever before. Capex discipline. Will benefit from China coming back online. Cheap multiple.

BUY
Rio Tinto
Remains in an uptrend, testing the downtrend. If it can break out above that, you've really got blue skies. Looks like it's trying to start another commodity super-cycle.

WAIT
Rio Tinto
RIO vs. BHP Both really well run and focused. Trimming portfolios and becoming more efficient. Leans toward BHP, but RIO is good as well. Cautious on the space right now, potential for a recession, and we don't know how deep. Both would get hit in a recession. Steer clear right now, look for something more defensive.

DON'T BUY
Rio Tinto
A great company, but it needs commodity inflation to come back.

DON'T BUY
Rio Tinto
A tough call. Minerals may have bottomed, though it's a great company. Doesn't know if the dividend is safe or not.

COMMENT
Rio Tinto
It has some relationship with the commodity price of iron ore so its dividend varies over the years. It is coming down to 7 to 8% but this still makes it still a good income stock.
other mines
HOLD
Rio Tinto
Mining companies being hit hard by rising interest rates. Investing capital into energy stocks instead. Expecting dividend to be maintained. Believes is a good long term hold.

WAIT
Rio Tinto
High dividend yield. Iron ore prices were over $200/tonne, but now they're $100, still extremely high. Steel looks particularly weak. Even in a recession, we won't go back to $50, but the yield should normalize closer to 7%. Wait and see, start to dabble in Q4.

WAIT
Rio Tinto
RIO vs. BHP For commodities as a whole, he's more of a trader, and he's not trading right now. Cyclicality impacts growth trends. Over time, the chart action is pretty horizontal. Both are good companies. Trade, don't put them in the closet and forget about them.
