As a result, the analyst lifts the target price to $16.90 from $13 though maintains a Hold rating. Rather than renewables, it’s thought the focus should be upon iron ore or even potential diversification into other mature markets.
Target price is $16.90.Current Price is $18.10. Difference: ($1.20) – (brackets indicate current price is over target). If FMG meets the Morgans target it will return approximately -7% (excluding dividends, fees and charges – negative figures indicate an expected loss).
