Fleeting moments in time...

The current earnings season coupled with the current correction are revealing brief moments in time to be savoured by those savvy investors in the know… Have a look at the chart below of BHP BILLITON, the largest diversified global mining company in the world, that just posted excellent results and is sitting on piles of cash, so much cash in fact that it is embarking on a share-buyback program.

BHP makes up about 13.2% of the FTSE/JSE Africa Index of 318 shares (the JSE), the largest contributor, next to ANGLO which is at 10.8% of the index. As such its daily gyrations and bull/bear trends have an enormous impact on the JSE TOP40 index.

The decline in BHP the last two weeks, has brought its historical price/earnings ratio (P/E) down to an astonishing 10.7x. The chart above shows blue shaded areas whenever BHP’s P/E visited below 12x which is demarcated by the horizontal green line. This valuation for BHP has occurred only 16.3% of the time over the last 15 years incorporating 3 bull markets and 2 bear markets. The lows reached by BHP yesterday have occurred a fleeting 10.7% of the time.

From an investors perspective, these fleeting moments all served as excellent buying opportunities. In fact, one could argue they catalogue the best 16% of the time to be investing in this counter. Oil spikes can come and go, brief economic slowdowns may visit from time to time – but the industrial revolutions in China and India will continue which will drive demand for iron-ore, coal, steel and all manner of minerals and resources mined by BHP. Sooner or later, valuations of BHP will become irresistible and the buyers will come back which will have a big impact on the JSE and Top40.
