LONDON, July 31 (Reuters) - Glencore on Tuesday lowered full-year guidance for its lead and coal output, while first-half copper production rose 8 percent from a year earlier and cobalt increased 31 percent as operations ramped up in Democratic Republic of Congo.
Guidance for full-year lead output was lowered by 5 percent and coal by 1 percent. Glencore plans to give further details when it releases first-half results next week.
Credit Suisse analysts in a note said most operations were broadly in line with forecasts and reiterated their outperform rating. (Reporting by Barbara Lewis; editing by Jason Neely)
