Rio Tinto Jumps On News of Potential Divestiture (RIO)Jun 3, 2013Mining giant Rio Tinto plc (RIO) saw shares surge on Monday after reports that one of the company's weaker units is attracting strong demand from potential buyers.

Vale do Rio Garners Tons of Accolades, but Stock Price is Dropping (RIO)Aug 11, 2008Vale (RIO) , the world's largest iron ore miner, is in position to ship 350 million tons of iron ore annually. The company has benefited from the huge demands of global steelmakers worldwide. Many analysts are applauding the organic growth and are getting even more bullish on the potential deals that may be coming. The company recently tried and failed to acquire the big Swiss mining company Xstrata, which recently offered $10 billion for producer Lonmin. Vale recently had a successful offering of stock at the $29 level, where the company raised over $11 billion for potential acquisitions. Other names that are mentioned are Alcoa (AA) or possibly even Freeport McMoran (FCX) . For investors, we wonder if RIO is playing aggressively at the wrong time. Commodity prices have been falling and just look at the RIO offering. Many investors that bought at $29 can not be thrilled the stock is down nearly $4 from that level. The stock tape may be telling us that the commodity waters may be turning rough for a bit here. We do prefer investors look at Freeport McMoran (FCX) if there is any interest in having commodity exposure. We recommend that investors stay on the sidelines for Vale (RIO) . Compania Vale Do Rio (RIO) is not a recommended dividend stock at this time, holding a Dividend.com rating of 3.0 out of 5 stars.

RIO Management Missing a Steel Opportunity (RIO)Jul 16, 2008Brazil-based Compania Vale Do Rio (RIO) 's reluctance to consider outside investment from steel producers may be a huge mistake. RIO is the world's largest produce of iron ore pellets, the key component in steel manufacturing. The company has been benefiting from skyrocketing iron ore prices, which have jumped anywhere from 60-90% since April. Unfortunately, the iron price boom has not translated to higher stock prices for RIO. The stock is currently down 30% from its levels two months ago. Steel makers, naturally, have been searching for ways to reduce their expenditures on iron ore. Rumors have been spreading recently about steel companies looking to purchase stakes in large iron ore producers, but thus far, RIO]s management has been reluctant to consider outside investments. We feel RIO is making a huge mistake by not being more open to investment from steel producers. Given the current global economic slowdown demand for steel (and iron ore by proxy) will not last forever. The window of opportunity may be shrinking for companies like RIO to sell a piece near the top. We will continue to watch RIO closely, but investors should look at other plays in the commodity spacethat offer better upside. Compania Vale Do Rio (RIO) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com Rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.
