Thanks for the info, but anyone have anything on Vale? I still think it will be a mover in several years as the rest of the world move their economies forward...

I've had the same question. I'm wondering if I should hang on to what I have, sell, or add to my position?

I'm also in, since before the crash, and this stock goes as China (its main client for iron ore) goes. Also keep an eye on commodities prices, usually they move according to oil.

Hope it helps!

I am long in VALE (currently around 8% of my assets). Jim Cramer recommended VALE a while ago as being the cheapest play on commodities - and I agree to that. It is currently a tad underperforming (not sure why) but that should go away soon. What I like is that VALE is mining in 21 different nations and thus is a bit stable when it comes to political changes. It isn't only mining iron, it is also mining copper and some others. It also bought two fertilizer companies for potash. With agro products rising in price that can only be good.

Hi TP, I don't have much to add to your post but I do own VALE and while I don't expect to see much price growth in the next couple of years I don't mind holding on to that Juicy 5 percent dividend. Wonder how such a large company fails to generate any interest here on the fool?
BCTim.
