ASX Top 200 Stocks Down Under 26 September 2022: Fortescue (ASX:FMG)

Fortescue: More downside to come

But with declining revenue and earnings forecasts for the next few years, along with an uncertain state of relations between Australia and Fortescue’s biggest customer (China), we don’t think it is. As impressive as its dividend yield was last year, we don’t think it can be maintained.
