Kupfer-Produzent Freeport-McMoRan reagiert auf den Kupferpreis-Crash

Der zweitgrößte Kupfer-Produzent der Welt, die amerikanische Freeport-McMoRan (NYE:FCX), kam in den letzten 4 Wochen aufgrund der Rohstoffpreis-Baisse besonders stark unter Druck.

Heute meldet sich das Management im Zuge des dramatischen Kursverfalls und stellt neue Kostensparprogramme inkl. Förder-Kürzungen in Aussicht - jedoch erst einmal nur in den "higher cost" Minen in Nordamerika:

  • Freeport McMoRan (FCX +9.4%) may cut output at its small North American copper and molybdenum mines to help it reduce costs, analysts say after it announced a cost and spending review.
  • FCX may reduce production at some of its North American operations as it did in 2008-09 to cut costs, Morningstar analyst Daniel Rohr says.
  • FCX does not provide cost data for individual mines, but the Q2 net cash cost for producing a pound of copper was $1.74 at its suite of North American mines vs. $0.81 at its Indonesian operations, $1.07 at its Tenke mine in Africa and $1.90 at its South American operations.
