Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Arch Coal stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Arch Coal, Inc. is a natural resource company. It produces metallurgical and thermal coal, used to manufacture steel and generate electricity. The company operates primarily in Alabama, Indiana, Washington, Arkansas, California, Utah and Texas. Arch Coal, Inc. is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri. " (11/20/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "With this report, we are updating our estimates for Arch Coal to incorporate the company's term loan refinancing, along with some adjustments to our 2017 and long-term outlook. On March 7, 2017, ARCH announced that it had entered into a new $300 million senior secured term loan credit agreement as part of its refinancing efforts. The updated model has priced in these changes, including the $18 million annual interest expense savings. Additionally, we have made several adjustments to our price, production volumes, and cost assumptions. Most impactful among them, we have lowered our 2Q and 3Q met coal benchmark price expectation to $160/Mt, from an average of $180/Mt, previously. Despite the reduction in our estimates, we believe that the recent HCC price stabilization is encouraging for the sector. Arch Coal continues to be our top pick in the space, and due to recent macro weakness affecting the stock price, we believe now is a good time to get involved with the name or to build on a previous position. We reiterate our Outperform rating and our $103 price target." (3/17/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Arch has a portfolio of low-cost US coal assets and a clean balance sheet. The company is well positioned to generate strong FCF (avg yield of 13.9% from 2017-2022E), even in a flat coal price environment. There is upside to our coal price forecasts as the political environment for coal in the US has improved. Arch's valuation is compelling, and we initiate coverage with a Buy rating and $90/sh price target." (2/17/2017)
