Analysts expect BHP profit drop

Lower commodity prices expected to weigh on miner's earnings.

BHP Billiton (BHP) is expected to post a fall in earnings largely due to lower commodity prices, particularly in iron ore and coal, which will more than offset higher volumes across most of its commodities.

Analysts are hoping for a clearer picture on the current operations and the outlook, as well as detail on cost cutting efforts (see Robert Gottliebsen's Making BHP more like CBA).
