SFR – Morgan Stanley rates the stock as Overweight

By Broker News | More Articles by Broker News

While 2019 has been affected by lower demand and de-stocking, Morgan Stanley remains bullish on near-term copper prices. Inventory levels are low and supply growth is weak. Moreover, there are positive indicators of demand in China, which should support the copper price.

The broker forecasts a price of US$3.00/lb in 2020. The preferred copper play is Sandfire Resources, which has a copper revenue exposure at around 90% of FY20 revenue.

The current 3-year mine life increases leverage to a near-term rise in the copper price and there are upcoming catalysts such as the Black Butte feasibility study, due in the December quarter.

Overweight rating and $7.65 target. Industry view is Attractive.
