Glencore preliminary results for FY 2021

Glencore has released preliminary results for the full year 2021 (FY21). These can be summarised as follows (FY21 vs FY20):

  • Revenue +43%
  • Adjusted EBITDA +84%
  • Earnings per share (EPS) $0.38 (-$0.14 in FY20)
  • Funds from operations +105%
  • Shareholder returns of $4.0 billion announced, comprising a proposed $0.26/share ($3.4 billion) base distribution in respect of 2021 cash flows, alongside a new $550 million share buyback program

The group has set aside $1.5 billion in provisions in lieu of ongoing investigations into conduct issues in the US, UK and Brazil which are expected to be resolved in 2022.

Glencore remains focused on decarbonisation efforts looking to sustainably deplete its coal operations over time. The company’s key metals (copper, zinc and nickel) align with cleaner green energy initiatives globally.

Strong cash flows from a v-shaped earnings recovery, manageable debt and good shareholder returns, combined with a core focus on global climate friendly commodities, suggest that the forward Price to Earnings multiple of roughly 6.7 times could be attractive for investors with a long-term time horizon on the stock.

Glencore – technical view

The share price of Glencore remains in an uptrend, although in the short-term the suggestion is that the share price is overbought.

Traders respecting the long-term uptrend might prefer to look for long entry into a correction from overbought territory, followed by a bullish price reversal at either the 408.15 or 387 support levels.

Longer term upside targets for the share are considered at 441.90 (recent high) and 452 (overhead trend line resistance).

    • Bitcoin: Anticipated target lies within the 58-60 range before an impending correction. The upward trajectory is displaying signs of softening, prompting short-term traders to elevate their stop-loss levels. Bond Yields: The 10-year yields are poised to conclude wave v) of C of (B). This development is pivotal as it will uphold the strength of the Dollar DXY. Consequently, positions in gold or silver should be refrained from until yields and the Dollar reach their peaks. China's Influence: An intriguing facet of the market landscape revolves around China. I've been meticulously observing a substantial Elliott Wave Triangle pattern dating back to 2008, which now seems to have reached its culmination. This event is forecasted to bolster base metal prices, particularly once the Dollar and yields reach their zeniths. Crude Oil: Progressing steadily on its upward trajectory, crude oil is set for further ascension. Natural Gas: The recent uptick in natural gas prices is construed as a corrective rally, indicative of an impending shorting opportunity in the near future.
