The world’s largest mining firm BHP Group missed analyst estimates for profits by a wide margin, generating net income of $3.76bn in the first half of its fiscal year vs. analyst estimates of $4.37bn. The company suffered from a train derailment, a fire at the Spence copper mine in Chile and an acid plant outage at the Olympic Dam mine in South Australia. On the positive side, the company expects to boost earnings in the second half of its fiscal year since iron ore prices spiked after the dam catastrophe in Brazil - this event has had a negative impact on Vale’s ability to produce iron ore and should leave BHP and Rio Tinto in a position to pick up the profits. The company’s CEO Andrew Mackenzie also dangled a carrot in front of investors’ noses by stating that there might be additional share buybacks of up to $3bn once the company has finalized asset sales of $10.4bn.

In Spain, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez called a snap election for 28 April 2019 after his budget proposals failed due to a lack of support from his Catalan coalition partners. There is less risk of a debt crisis than in Italy since Spain’s budget deficit currently stands at 3.1% (Italy: 2.4%) and its debt/GDP-ratio is 98.1% (Italy 131.2%). Furthermore, while Pedro Sanchez's Social Democratic PSOE leads the opinion polls, the most likely outcome of the election according to the latest opinion polls is a governing coalition of the centre-right Partido Popular (PP), together with the liberal Citizens Party and the right-wing nationalist of Vox. While Vox is comparable to other rightwing populist parties in Europe, their vote share is likely going to be around 10%, making them the junior partner to the PP and the Citizens Party.
