  • Why China Could Affect Your Portfolio in the Near Term

    By Robinson Roacho - July 22, 2013 | Tickers: VALE, FCX, SCCO

    There is evidence that Chinese manufacturing activity is slowing down. Readings on China’s PMI showed a slight but constant contraction. One of the consequences is that the prices of several metals may experience downward pressure. Copper comes to mind since the commodity is often regarded as the industrial activity barometer. Since manufacturing is contracting, it would be a good idea to stay away from these stocks.

  • This Diversified Global Miner's Too Cheap to Ignore

    By Matt Smith - July 17, 2013 | Tickers: BHP, BBL, VALE, RIO

    Softening demand for commodities, on the back of China's slowing economy, has hurt the profitability of all the major mining companies, creating a sentiment-fueled selloff of mining stocks. This has driven down the share prices of all the major miners, with the world's largest miner, BHP Billiton (NYSE: BHP) (NYSE: BBL) down by 29% for the year to date. Both diversified global miner Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO) and more »

    By James Catlin - July 11, 2013 | Tickers: VALE, EWZ, PBR

    Since the beginning of 2013, the iShares MSCI Brazil Index ETF (NYSEMKT: EWZ) is down over 25%, with very little reason to believe this should abate.

    Let's face it, times are tough in Brazil right now. Commodities have declined in price, speculation that stagflation is taking hold has hurt financials, credit downgrades loom threatening junk status, and the political unrest seems to grow daily.

  • Commodities Bearing Down on Your Portfolio

    By Marshall Hargrave - July 8, 2013 | Tickers: ANR, VALE, BTU

    Both iron and coal entered bear markets earlier this year, meaning that a number of portfolios have been feeling the pressure, mainly due to weakness in China. The commodity-using giant appears to be at the root of much of these declines. Bank of America recently reduced its estimate on China’s 2013 gross domestic product growth to 7.6% from 8%, noting that Chinese macro data is deteriorating.

    By Federico Zaldua - July 8, 2013 | Tickers: VALE, ITUB, PBR

    By Ken McGaha - July 2, 2013 | Tickers: VALE, FCX, SCCO

    The recent collapse of stock prices in the mining sector presents investors who act now with an opportunity to collect solid double-digit annual gains for years to come.

    By Peter Epstein - June 17, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, VALE, DNN, EFRFF, RIO

    According to Wikipedia, Resource Nationalism (RN) is "the tendency of people and governments to assert control over natural resources located on their territory." This definition fails to convey the breadth of the threat the world faces. Most readers recognize overt acts of RN.
