Morgan Stanley today maintained an Overweight rating on Freeport-McMoRan (NYSE: FCX) with a price target of $45.00. Analyst Paretosh Misra said he thinks Freeport-McMoRan’s planned acquisitions of Plains Exploration & Production (NYSE: PXP) will close in early June. Yesterday it was reported that Freeport-McMoRan plans to close the deal on the original terms, despite objections from some shareholders. Long term Freeport-McMoRan shareholders will likely be rewarded with strong growth through 2015 and lower political uncertainty. Misra also noted that copper inventories are starting to decline.For an analyst ratings summary and ratings history on Freeport-McMoRan click here.
