    the average price for 62% iron in the first two months of this quarter was $106, for 65% iron was $125. about 2/3 of iron is 65. ebitda break even is $45. respected production is 90mt. if December is similar, back of the envelope math says ebitda from iron around $6.7b. add rest of the business. add sale of Mosaic. add sale of Mozambique. I'm not selling anything until this goes back to $18 at least, which was my target when I started 5 years ago but then I got greedy... oh well

    Surprised this article hasn't been in newsfeed: "Vale sees spinoff hope in tapping waste for building materials". Anyone watching cement and sand usage will understand the opportunity here. Google the article. gl

    Vale S.A’s VALE investment in the Salobo III mine expansion was 81% complete at the end of third-quarter 2021. This expansion will increase the mill throughput capacity by 50% and add to gold production in 2023. It anticipates that the Salobo expansion is scheduled to commence in the second half of 2022.

    At Vale's Voisey's Bay operation, physical completion of the Voisey's Bay underground mine expansion (Reid Brook and Eastern Deeps underground mines) was 70% completed at the end of the third quarter. In June, Vale achieved the first ore production from the Reedbrook underground mine, which is likely to be one of the most sustainable sources of cobalt in the world. Eastern Deeps is expected to start in 2022.

    Bought 40,000 shares under $12 and don’t even look at Iron Ore prices. I’m buying for the nickel production which is severely undervalued. Nickel has replaced cobalt in most EV battery cells including ALL of Tesla batteries. It’s insane to me that you can buy VALE this cheap. Nickel sales will break new records every year for the next decade.

    Iron ore rising 7% on tuesday morning in China Trade .......

    Brazil’s economy has returned to pre-pandemic levels, supported by booming terms of trade and robust private sector credit growth, and one of the biggest stimulus packages in emerging markets–nearly 4 percent of GDP in emergency cash transfers alone in 2020.

    Read the report
    Read the press release
    Brazil and the IMF
    The country has been hit hard by the pandemic, however. COVID-19 has claimed the lives of more than 550,000 Brazilians, the second highest death toll worldwide. Renewed lockdowns following a severe second wave and the rollout of vaccinations have helped bring down infections since April, with new daily COVID-19 cases and deaths falling significantly from their peaks. But rates of unemployment and poverty remain high. Inflation too has surged, weighing on the outlook.

    Growth is projected to rebound to 5.3 percent in 2021. Sustaining the recovery, however, will require further institutional reforms to raise labor productivity growth and foster private sector-led investment.


    As the largest steel producer and exporter, China's demand for iron ore has been strong, but it depends heavily on imports. About 80 percent of iron ore resources come from abroad, and 60 percent of China's iron ore resources come from Australia.

    you can see how Brazil, one of the so called "Brics" (Brazil , Russia, india, China) could just take geopolitical edge, even with the falling demand.... markets... funny old thing, I think US australia and UK anounced a venuture to limit chinese growth, and china is building ever more despite the "slump", its records.

    Some of my observations/analysis:
    1) iron ore last few years cycles from Nov to July in uptrend, July to Nov in downtrend
    2) VALE since 2020, has almost 100% positive correlation to iron ore, while in the past not so extreme, even negative for months. VALE being used as an iron ore ETF - it's not... it is a stock. This could end at any time. People are not valuing any other aspect of this company except iron ore biz.
    3) In 2019 iron ore was often in the 70-80's range and VALE was about 15
    4) My 'downtrend analysis' tells me 11 is roughly the short term low (but 10.2 also possible)
    5) High probability of 17 to 18 VALE stock price by Jan 2022, may drop some in the Spring 2022.
    6) likely see a rally in iron ore prices to 150 by Jan 2022.

    Let me know what you think...
