Vale is a Brazilian multinational corporation engaged in metals and mining and one of the largest logistics operators in Brazil. Global metal price continues to soar, so we decide to add more exposure to the supply-side sector. Also, Brazil’s daily new cases of Covid has maintained relatively stable at a lower end, so we expect a recovery in the constructions industry, which is of heavy demand for metals as raw material.
As one of the world’s largest mining companies, Vale is well positioned to take advantage of expected increases in government and commercial investment following the height of the pandemic. The company operates several copper mines in Chile, giving us further exposure to one of the country’s key industries as we expect its recovery to continue.
As steel production increases down the line - because of post COVID business and government investment, we believe that Vale will continue that trend. VALE is the world's biggest iron and nickel ore mining company and services towards multiple multinational companies - and although it appears that China is cracking down a little bit on outside steel imports, we believe that VALE will have long term potential and considering VALE exports to plenty of companies that in China, it should not have that significant of an effect.
Recently China has been cracking down on its domestic steel production and has brought uncertainty brought to the market. This has made investors question whether Vale will be affected in the long term or whether it can find other customers who will produce steel. Vale has been pretty attentive to its shareholders and has given dividends and started a share buyback program. Further the brazil growth story and its leading role in iron ore and nickel production makes it a good value contender.
Mining company with 75% of revenue coming from emerging markets. With high inflation, mining companies will have increasing revenues from rising commodity prices.
