BHP will post a net profit of $US3.9bn for the first half of 2018-19, according to the consensus forecast of analysts. This compares with $US4.1bn for the previous corresponding period. EBITDA is tipped to fall from $US12.8bn to $US10.6bn, although an expected strong rise in the petroleum division’s EBITDA will help offset the underperformance elsewhere in BHP’s portfolio. Meanwhile, BHP’s interim dividend is expected to fall from $US0.55 per share to $US0.53, although the downturn in the Australian dollar will boost the dividend payout of local investors.
