Antofagasta hopes to shine brighter than Anglo American
Following a production downgrade from its fellow blue-chip copper miner Anglo American plc (LON:AAL) on Tuesday, Antofagasta PLC (LON:ANTO) will be hoping it has fared better when it delivers a third-quarter update on Wednesday.
Investors will be keeping their eyes peeled for signs of improving relations with its employees, having just averted a planned strike at its copper mine in Chile last week by promising a 1% wage hike.
The company is also expected to report record production figures after 22% growth in the first half of the year.
Significant events on Wednesday 23 October:
Finals: Softcat PLC (LON:SCT)
Interims: HarbourVest Private Equity PLC (LON:HVPE)
Economic announcements: UK Finance mortgage lending, US MBA mortgage applications, US housing prices
