Is Rio Tinto a steel?

Rio Tinto has some of the best mining assets in the world and its shares have been getting cheaper. Is now the time to pile in?

Commodity prices are crashing. From oil, gold and coal to nickel, copper and iron ore, the demise of China’s investment-led growth model has been crushingly brutal on both commodities and equity prices. We’ve responded to the carnage by selectively upgrading stocks; South32 is terrific value now and we’ve suggested gingerly buying BHP Billiton as it struggles through its operating crisis.

What then, of the second largest miner on the market? Is Rio Tinto also worth buying?
