The ups and downs of South32

With South32's share price whipping around, Gaurav Sodhi looks at the best assets of the new miner.

BHP Billiton spinoff South32 has had a tumultuous start to life; falling, rising and falling again in just a few weeks as a listed business. Such volatility is not unexpected from a mining business but, in this case, it appears to have little to do with commodity price movements and more to do with buying and selling as new and old shareholders cross paths.

Such short-term inefficiencies can create opportunity and with South32’s share price now below $2.20, we’re upgrading back to Buy.
