Long a staple of many Australian portfolios and super funds, the ‘Big Australian’ has significantly underperformed the ASX200 over the last few years. Culminating in an annus horribilis in 2015 that saw shareholder value fall by nearly half, BHP’s share price has since staged a strong recovery, and is currently trading around the $23-24 mark after climbing out of the $14 depths it reached in early 2016. Similarly, its 2017 dividend has been announced as 52c/share, comparing favourably with 2016’s disappointing 22c payout. Despite the near 100% rise in 2016, BHP has still significantly underperformed the broader SP/ASX200 index over the last few years.

US equities conclude a choppy week in positive territory
At the close of last week, Nasdaq, S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average were up 1.8%, 0.8% and 0.5%, respectively. US equity markets recovered from last week’s decline as investors’ focus shift away from geopolitical concerns to a flurry of earnings releases. The first quarter result season is largely expected to be positive. Equities also reacted positively to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s assurance that the Trump administration is close to finalising major tax reforms and would soon release its proposal. Moreover, the Fed published its Beige Book ahead of the FOMC meeting, scheduled for 1-2 May. The Beige Book showed increased economic activity across all 12 districts. Meanwhile, investors continue to closely follow the series of upcoming elections in Europe and tensions around North Korea and Syria.
