Billionaire Stanley Druckenmiller's 2022 Portfolio: Value Stock Picks

10. Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE:FCX)

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 66

P/E Ratio as of May 18: 10.49

Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE:FCX) was incorporated in 1987 and is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona. The company mines for copper, gold, molybdenum, silver, and other metals in North America, South America, and Indonesia. Stanley Druckenmiller’s hedge fund owned 4.8 million shares of Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE:FCX) in Q1 2022, worth $240.5 million, representing 10.43% of the total 13F holdings. 

On April 21, Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE:FCX) reported earnings for the first quarter of 2022. The company posted an EPS of $1.07, beating consensus estimates by $0.15. Revenue for the period grew 36.14% year-over-year to $6.60 billion, outperforming Street forecasts by $148.02 million. 

Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE:FCX) declared on March 23 a $0.15 per share quarterly dividend, up from the prior dividend of $0.075. The dividend was distributed on May 2, to shareholders of record on April 14. 

BMO Capital analyst David Gagliano on April 22 maintained an Outperform rating on Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE:FCX) but lowered the firm's price target on the shares to $56 from $62 after its Q1 results. The analyst slashed his FY22 EPS view by 25c to $3.47 to account for expected higher unit costs, though he also sees Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE:FCX) "remaining well-placed" to benefit from ongoing strength in underlying copper prices.

According to Insider Monkey’s Q4 data, 66 hedge funds were bullish on Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE:FCX), with collective stakes worth $3.7 billion. In Q1 2022, Ken Fisher’s Fisher Asset Management was a notable shareholder of the company, with 50.75 million shares valued at $2.5 billion. 

In addition to Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), and Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX), Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE:FCX) is one of the most notable stocks to consider according to billionaire Stanley Druckenmiller’s 2022 portfolio.  

Here is what Horizon Kinetics has to say about Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE:FCX) in its Q4 2021 investor letter:

“Those were some ideas about copper demand. Here are some specifics about supply. Global copper mine production in the 10 years from 2005 to 2015 rose 2.45% annually. In the next 5 years, to 2020, it increased by only 0.9% annually. Even ignoring the 2020 pandemic year, for the 4 years from to 2019, the expansion rate was 1.66%. We already have the historical context for this: the commodity price collapse prior to 2015, from a position of excess capacity.

What producers must do in that situation, because they have high fixed costs and debt expense, is curtail their exploration and development expenditures and reduce operating costs. They rely on existing mines, instead, and on their highest-grade ores and lowest-cost production. They might not actually reduce current production, but they aren’t replacing the reserves that are being slowly drawn down. You can see this at work at the individual company level.

Freeport-McMoRan will illustrate. It is the world’s third-largest copper producer, closely following Chile’s Codelco and Australia’s BHP Group. In 2014, even though Freeport sold more copper than the prior year, its revenues dropped by over 25%, and it went from $4.8 billion of operating earnings (a 22% margin) to a $(0.2) billion loss. The company’s capital expenditures peaked in 2014 at $3.86 billion and will be about $1.72 billion in 2021, meaning the company is spending 55% less now than it was seven years ago. In inflation-adjusted terms, it’s spending 61% less today than seven years ago…” (Click here to see the full text)

Here is what ClearBridge Investments Large Cap Value Strategy has to say about Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) in its Q1 2022 investor letter:

“The energy sector, which led a strong market in 2021, generated even more dramatic relative performance in the quarter, advancing 39% and leading the benchmark Russell 1000 Value Index. Years of restrained investment in the energy sector, combined with a strong post-pandemic recovery, contributed to the higher commodity prices. The upward pressure escalated with the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Our energy holding Chevron (NYSE:CVX) benefited from higher commodity prices and was among the top contributors to first-quarter performance.”

“Other bottom contributors included Coterra Energy. Coterra is the result of a merger-of-equals between our prior holding Cimarex Energy and Cabot Oil & Gas—the largest natural gas producer in the Northeast. The combined company has solid, low cost of production assets and a good balance sheet. During the quarter, share prices fell as concerns over additional waves of COVID-19 pressured oil and gas prices lower.”

“Our underweight to the energy sector weighed on performance, as energy prices skyrocketed from inflationary pressures and the threat of reduced supply. We have a limited footprint within the sector but continue to look for companies that will generate strong, long-term returns such as Pioneer Natural Resources. Pioneer is an oil and gas exploration and production company that offers a combination of a strong asset base, quality balance sheet and compelling free cash flow yield at current commodity prices.
