The Q3 21 results were broadly in line with the street’s expectations.
The nice margins were supported by volumes but, most of all and as expected, prices.
The outlook is supportive for Q4 21/Q1 22.
Net debt is at record low levels (US$3.9bn).
A new US$1bn share buy-back was announced.
We will fine-tune our numbers, with probably no big change to our estimates.

The H1 21 results came in above consensus.
Q2 and H1 are the best released since 2008, on the back of sky-rocketing prices.
The performance is seen across the board with all geographies benefiting from very high prices.
The balance sheet is further deleveraged, enabling an extension of the share buy-back programme to US$2.2bn.
We will upgrade again our forecasts and target price, even if the visibility for FY22 is still very low.
The Q1 21 results came quite significantly above (high) expectations
Volumes and prices held up very well across the board
A new share buy-back programme is announced
We expect to revise upwards our numbers and valuation
FY20 results came in better than the street’s expectations
The group anticipates a rebound in steel demand for FY21
A new cost-cutting programme is in place (US$1bn until FY22)
The net debt level is the lowest since 2006
Resumption of a dividend payment and a new share buy-back programme
ArcelorMittal is to dispose of its US operations (ex Calvert) to Cleveland-Cliffs through a share and cash deal.
The divestiture of AM US makes sense in our view from a strategic point of view.
It also further strengthens the group’s balance sheet, the group having reached its deleveraging targets.
US$500m will returned to shareholders thourgh a share buy-back.

Jubilee today announce the full year results for FY 2021 ending in June 21. It was a year of continued progress with revenues up 143% to £133m (from FY 2020), adjusted PBT up 324% to £52m and eps up 93% to 1.8p/sh – an extraordinary year – but still only the beginning of the progression in our view. Continued developments in South Africa have led to a fully flexible chrome and chrome tailings solution at Inyoni. Supply from a wide variety of sources (Run-Of-Mine, new tailings from own operati

Friday's market sell off saw some violent downward moves in many stocks with little initial differentiation between sectors or the key drivers of businesses, creating significant share price drops in a number of higher quality or uncorrelated names. We take a look at some stocks we believe have either seen an unwarranted sell-off, have seen weakness go under the radar or where there is now a more attractive opportunity.

Trinity has received FDP approval from the Ministry of Energy and Energy Industries (MEEI) for the Phase 1 development of the Galeota licence. The submitted development plan has the potential to add additional peak production of c4,000 bopd; however more recent modelling suggests that intra-year peak production could be significantly higher, up to 7,000 bopd. Whilst the current development concept comprises the installation of a low-cost eight well platform (Echo), we note that Trinity is also w

European gas prices are never far away from the headlines at the moment, although Parkmead’s results to end-June did not capture this surge in prices – that is yet to come. Parkmead is well placed to benefit from the current strength in European gas prices, while the potential for another commodity super-cycle suggests there is further progress to come on its major GPA oil project. A strong net cash position also puts it in the driving seat for potential acquisitions.
