Bhp (LON:BHP) is a large cap in the Metals & Mining industry. Formerly BHP Billiton Plc, this diversified mining giant is a producer of various commodities, including iron ore, metallurgical coal, copper and uranium.

Right now the BHP share price appears to represent solid value, as shown in the group's Value Rank of 68. Let's explore this in more detail.


Digging into BHP's Value Rank

Looking at BHP's StockReport, we can see that the group has a:

  • Rolling price to book value of 2.41,
  • Trailing twelve month price to earnings ratio of 13.4
  • Trailing twelve month price to free cashflow of 10.6
  • Rolling dividend yield of 5.97%
