12:17 EDTCLF, JOY, VALE, RIO, BHPMining companies fall after China seeks to slow housing market
A number of mining companies are retreating after the Chinese government ordered some municipalities to take steps to slow down the country's housing market. China is the world's largest consumer of copper, iron ore, and coal. The country's cabinet on Friday ordered cities with "excessively fast" growth to raise down payment requirements and interest rates on purchases of second homes, according to Bloomberg. The government also indicated that it would seek to more strictly enforce a law requiring individuals to pay a 20% tax on their profits from selling homes when the selling price is available, the news service added. Separately, Bloomberg reported that China is creating large mining companies that will be able to compete with global mining conglomerates for acquisitions of foreign companies. In early afternoon trading, Cliffs Natural (CLF) sank 5% to $24, Joy Global (JOY) dropped 4% to $59.50, Vale (VALE) gave back 3% to $18, Rio Tinto (RIO) dropped 3% to $50 and BHP Billiton (BHP) lost 1.3% to $73.

05:57 EDTBHPBHP Billiton reports FY14 underlying profit $13.45B vs. $12.21B last year
BHP said capital and exploration expenditure is expected to decline to $14.5Bin the 2015 financial year and be no more than $14B should the proposed demerger be implemented. "By maintaining an internal focus and concentrating investment in our major basins we believe an average rate of return of greater than 20% is achievable for our favoured development options," the company said. It added, "With robust volume growth and further productivity gains expected, we remain confident in the outlook for the Group. On this basis, we increased our full-year progressive base dividend by 4% to 121 US cents per share for an Underlying payout ratio of 48%. We will seek to steadily increase or at least maintain the dividend per share in US dollar terms at each half-yearly payment following the demerger, implying a higher payout ratio."
