Shares in Fortescue Metals Group closed nearly 2.5 per cent higher at $3.76 on 11 October, after the pure-play iron ore miner announced plans to repurchase $500m worth of its shares. Peter O’Connor of Shaw & Partners has welcomed the share buyback, which has coincided with the recent rise in the price of lower-grade iron. Fortescue is expected to launch the buyback following the release of its quarterly results in late October.
