An analyst at HSBC upgraded Vale S.A. (NYSE: VALE) from Neutral to Overweight Wednesday morning.

The analyst cited several factors behind the upgrade, including:
  • Chinese macro data which will likely improve heading into the second half of this year
  • support for iron ore spot prices at current levels
  • reductions to consensus estimates are likely "over after a poor first-quarter and downward revisions to 2012 Street commodity forecasts..."
  • attractive valuation and a 6 percent dividend yield which appears to be "sustainable over the coming few years..."
Despite the upgrade, shares of Vale trading on the NYSE are down 0.4 percent to $19.41 at last check.
