BHP breakout, 50-MA support, and strong fundamentals pushing price to $62?

Shares of BHP Group Limited (LON:BHP) traded up 4% on Tuesday after strong FY22 results. That was after the net profit rose 173% to close the year at $30.9 billion. The underlying attributable profit of the company was $23.8 billion, from the prior $17.1 billion.

Despite the robust FY22 results, analysts emphasized caution on BHP stock. Jefferies commented that BHP’s cash flow and returns remain robust. However, the macro outlook is a big concern. RBC Capital agreed with the Jefferies sentiment, saying that the focus will now be on higher costs and capex. RBC projects a downward revision of consensus estimates once the market digests the future cash flow outlook. 

A review of the financial report highlights expectations of higher costs due to inflation and study costs. BHP plans to offset the expenses through spending discipline and productivity improvements. Improved exchange rates are also expected to cut costs. 

While analysts forecast higher costs, they have a strong rating on the stock. Jefferies has a buy rating on BHP but warns of near-term volatility. The stock has a hold rating by 4 Wall Street analysts, with a target of $59. We believe the stock could hit $62 soon and is a buy/hold.
