What are analysts saying about Peabody Energy stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Peabody Energy stock:

  • 1. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Peabody is expected to kick off earnings season for the U.S. coal sector on Wednesday, October 25. Our 3Q17 EBITDA estimate of $392M and EPS estimate of $1.56 both come in above consensus of EBITDA $366M and EPS $1.22, respectively. With this note we tweaked our estimates for recently released MSHA data, pointing to strong production in the PRB and ILB, but a miss in its Western mines. Overall, we expect a strong quarter from Peabody, driven by strengthening seaborne prices (especially on the thermal coal side) and the aforementioned robust domestic production. Needless to say, results should also improve from Q2 as weather-related disruptions receded. In the quarter, Peabody voluntarily repaid $300M in debt and modified its term loan to provide further capital allocation flexibility. We will be on the lookout for updates on restricted cash, Chapter 11 expenses, and restructuring expenses, all of which could push the cash position in various directions." (10/18/2017)
