BHP Group is trading near fair value and investors should consider selling $42.18 Euro call options into Sept, to add to the cash flow returns.
The highlight of the June quarter production update was petroleum volumes outpacing estimates. Iron ore and copper were in line, while coal disappointed.
FY20 revenue is forecast to be $46bn and net profit $12bn, supporting a 5.5% yield.
The surging iron ore prices creates the potential for BHP to announce a special dividend when it reports its full year result next month.
