BHP Review

In summary, BHP posted a solid result with both NPAT and EBIT beating consensus. With the final dividend coming in at US14cps, FY16 total dividends of US30cps, the total dividends for the year are below expectations.  In FY17 we remain hopeful we’ve seen the bottom of the cycle for BHP earnings.
