Why I put real money into fcx today at 37.68. With the release of adp employment numbers you could see that the economy is gaining traction and all over the world governments are doing everything they can to get there economies growing again. All of this should help fcx plus this past year insiders have been buying millions of shares. Finally the pe ratio is below the S&P 500 and the dividend is above 3%

This company has a pretty broad pipeline of metals and resources that it produces. Gold, copper and cobalt are all metals that are very important and are becoming more important in the tech industry. Along with that, as stricter regulations are put on thermal coal in the US, more power companies are turning to natural gas as a cleaner alternative. Oil production gives this company a well rounded and broader base to rely on. Over the next 3 to 5 years I think we will see this company growing along with the tech and power industries.

Thanks to good work done by m'man Brendan Mathews (TMFWillSommers), I learn that FCX has gone from solid balance sheet to much more leveraged (~$21B now in debt), and I don't find myself highly motivated to guess at copper prices -- which have actually lost about 25% of their value in the past two years. I'll always be the last guy guessing right on metal prices. Also, company much more diversified right now (adding in oil & gas) but to me that only further complicates the picture. Brendan gives FCX a 30% chance of beating the market over the next three years. I'll agree. Underperform.

There are a number of factors that makes this stock attractive. Its P/E is at a reasonable 12, and its forward P/E is at an even stronger 10. The PEG ratio is .43, which is outstanding. Its Price to Sale and Price to Book ratios, both 1.58, are solid. The current ratio is also strong at 2. The projected earnings per share rate over the next five years is 27.9 percent, and if that turns out to be remotely true, the stock price should rocket. Additionally, the stock offers a 4 percent dividend, so there is plenty of compensation while you wait around for price appreciation. On the technical side, the stock appears to have put in a double bottom since the beginning of February. While the mining industry has struggled, the future looks to be significantly better, but this of course is the whole key to the thesis, and I also grant that it is debatable.

Not the greatest company, but FCX takes economic rent, whatever the market will bear, to extract metal from locations it has exclusive access to.

Diverse base of essential natural resource reserves, with low cost, growing production across its portfolio. Strong cash flows, excellent dividend with potential for additional special payouts.

I hate this stock picked it at a high point and have hung on for 4 years. But think it has hit bottom and they are diversifying.

Trophy assets backed by a strong balance sheet in a cyclical industry at or near a trough. Real money pick with a modified synthetic long (32P/34C).

Freeport has expended a lot of money on exploration over the last several years, and after severely underperforming the market over the last 18 months, this well-managed, shareholder friendly company is poised for a rebound. I expect margins to expand as a result of cheaper extraction costs in its newer mines. And while you patiently wait for the share price to appreciate, you can collect (and reinvest) a 4% dividend that is only likely to grow.
