Goldman Sachs analyst Paul Young has upgraded his rating for Fortescue Metals from ‘hold’ to ‘buy’, despite the recent slump in the price of iron ore. Young has also set a price target of $9.80 for Fortescue, around 35 per cent higher than recent levels. Although JP Morgan has noted recently that Vale is producing more ore and Chinese steel inventories are on the increase, Young notes that Goldman’s commodities team has recently upgraded 2019, 2020 and 20201 estimated iron ore prices.
