Where I would reinvest my BHP Billiton Limited (ASX:BHP) dividends

BLT

Later today eligible BHP Billiton Limited(ASX: BHP) shareholders will receive the mining giant’s final fully franked 88.5 cents per share dividend. While some shareholders may use this dividend as a source of income to live from, I suspect that others will look to reinvest these funds back into the share market. Here are three shares that I would consider snapping up with these funds:. Despite its vast size, I still believe CSL can grow at an above-average rate over the coming years thanks to the quality of its management team, its growing plasma collection network, strong core business, lucrative pipeline of products, and fast-growing influenza business. Earlier this year the company announced plans to grow its capacity to a total of 300 megawatts, putting it in a great position to capture the growing demand for data storage and services. However, its shares are changing hands on a sky high earnings multiple, making them a reasonably high risk investment option.

BLT

BHP seeks approval for $50 mln U.S. pact over fatal Brazil dam burst. NEW YORK, Sept 20 (Reuters) - BHP Billiton Ltd has asked a U.S. judge to approve a $50 million settlement of claims that it fraudulently inflated its share price by overstating its ability to manage safety risks before a fatal 2015 dam burst at a Brazilian mine. The Anglo-Australian mining company's preliminary settlement of class-action litigation led by two Alabama pension plans was filed on Wednesday night with the U.S. District Court in Manhattan. It would resolve shareholder claims stemming from the Nov. 5, 2015 bursting of the Fundão dam in Minas Gerais, Brazil's main mining state, at a mine run by Samarco, a joint venture between BHP and Brazil's Vale SA.

BLT

MELBOURNE (Reuters) - BHP Billiton <BHP.AX> <BLT.L> Chief Executive Andrew Mackenzie received a $100,000 pay rise in the last financial year but missed out on a higher increase after two fatalities and lower than targeted output of key commodities, BHP said on Tuesday. The increase bumped up Mackenzie's pay to $4.66 million from $4.55 million a year earlier. Target remuneration stood at $7.72 million with a maximum of $13.1 million the in the case of "significant outperformance", BHP said in its annual report. For the coming year, Mackenzie's base salary will remain at $1.7 million, where it has been frozen since he was appointed to the top job in 2013.

BHP To Drop 'Billiton' From Its Name

BLT

(RTTNews) - BHP Billiton Ltd(BHP.AX, BLT.L, BBL, BHP) said it would ask shareholders to vote to rename the company BHP Group. The shortened name takes the company back to its origins as Broken Hill Proprietary Co., when it was formed more than 130 years ago around a silver, lead and tin mine in South Australia. It formally adopted BHP Ltd. a year before the 2001 merger with Britain's Billiton PLC, when it took on both names and a dual Australia- U.K.-headquartered and listed structure. BHP has conducted the first blast at a new 3.6 billion U.S. dollar iron ore mine in the state of Western Australia, just three months after the company's board gave approval for the project.
