Freeport-McMoRan Inc.'s shares closed up 2.09% yesterday despite absence of any remarkable news. The world's second-largest copper miner recently reported earnings for the first quarter. Revenue came in at $3,341 million while net earnings came in at $228 million. Richard C.

The resumption of concentrate exports in Indonesia and expected continued strong performance from our Americas operations will enable us to generate significant cash flows in the balance of the year to achieve our balance sheet objectives. Our team is focused on reaching a positive near-term resolution to protect our past investments and support our long-term investment plans in Indonesia and in building long-term values in our large portfolio of high-quality copper assets in the Americas."
