    As mining investors push caution, Glencore differs from rivals

    TORONTO/MELBOURNE (Reuters) - As shareholders push the world's cash-rich miners to maintain lush dividends and make the most of existing assets, Glencore is taking a slightly different tactic that positions it for shrewd acquisitions. Like other big rivals, Glencore is expected to lift its dividend payout when it reports results next week, but the Swiss miner and trader is also "open for business" when it comes to buying mines or companies, its chief financial officer said in December.

    S&P upgrades Rio Tinto, flags well-placed for M&A

    Standard & Poor's on Tuesday raised its credit rating on global miner Rio Tinto for the first time since 2011 on the back of strong financial results and said the global miner could easily fund a big acquisition. S&P said one of the main factors that led to the upgrade to 'A' from 'A-' was Rio Tinto's sharp reduction in debt over the past four years and its "willingness to keep it low", which would shore it up well against any future downturns. "Alternatively, it could allow the company to enter into sizable merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions without overstretching its balance sheet," S&P said.
