Anglo American Seen Cutting Dividend as Commodities Retreat

Updated on

Anglo American Plc could cut its dividend for the first time since 2009 as tumbling commodity prices reduce the cash available to pay investors.

Analysts at Barclays Plc, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Investec Ltd. have all said the company may make a cut when it reports first-half results next week, without specifying the scale of any reduction. Anglo, which spent $1 billion on dividends in 2014, hasn’t reduced the payout since it was halted during the global financial crisis.
