Abstract

Over the last nine years, developing countries have been growing at breakneck speed - resulting in massive gains in commodity prices.


As a consequence, companies that extract these materials from the ground have experienced phenomenal earnings. For example, Anglo American has experienced two earnings spikes each in excess of 80% over this period (naturally the share price has followed suit with a return of 1000%, compared to the 60% over the prior nine years).
