  • Investors are digging Freeport McMoRan's (FCX +3.2%) Q2 report, as weaker Y/Y results via lower prices and volumes and higher costs already were anticipated. Acquisitions have stretched the balance sheet and could pressure free cash flow, but longer-term the deals give FCX valuable oil-rich assets at a reasonable price to help cut dependence on metals.
