BHP has posted an underlying profit of $US3.8bn ($5.3bn) for the first half of 2018-19, which is slightly below the consensus forecast of analysts. Underlying EBITDA also fell slightly short of expectations at $US10.5bn. Meanwhile, CEO Andrew Mackenzie says BHP will not increase its iron ore output despite a rally in the price of the steel input in the wake of the tailings dam disaster in Brazil in January. Shareholders will receive a higher-than-expected interim dividend of $US0.55 per share.
