(ShareCast News) - Robert Brown, a non-executive director at Rio Tinto, picked up 4,500 American Depositary Receipts in the miner at an individual price of US$46.27, pocketing out a total of US$208,215 in the process.
On 8 February, the Australia-focused miner reported full-year net earnings of $4.6bn compared to a loss of $866m the year before as most commodity prices rose for the first time in a number years in the second half of 2016, despite numerous political and macro shocks to the global economy.

Almost a week afterwards, on 14 February, analysts at Macquarie reiterated their 'outperform' recommendation and 4,335p target price on the shares on the heels of a sell-side analyst roundtable with Rio's finance chief, Chris Lynch.

"The discussion focused on RIO's organic growth options, detailing the $5.0bn productivity target and potential for further capital management given current iron-ore price strength."

"CFO Chris Lynch reiterated there are only three destinations for RIO's cash generation-capital expenditure, strengthening the balance sheet, or shareholder returns.

"A lift in the US$0.5bn share buy-back post the sale of Coal & Allied looks likely, with dividend payouts expected to be towards the upper end of the payout range."
