(BHP) BHP Billiton – ADR – Bear of the Day

We downgrade our recommendation on BHP Billiton Ltd. – ADR (BHP) from Neutral to Underperform based on declining industrial demand on the back of sluggish economic growth in Europe and U.S. Other headwinds include competition from peers, upsurge in oil prices and rising inflation in the emerging markets.

Turning toward expenses, the cost of improving ore grades, mining disruptions due to natural calamities, governmental delays as well as currency fluctuations further thwart the stock. A slower global growth rate, on the back of the European crisis and a dwindling U.S. economy may impact the demand for the company’s products and dampen revenue growth going forward.

Volatility in currency prices may have a significant impact on the company s financial results going ahead. Moreover, an upsurge in oil prices and rising core inflation in the emerging markets may also prove detrimental to the company’s growth.
