What are analysts saying about Cloud Peak Energy stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cloud Peak Energy operates as a producer of low sulfur, high quality, sub-bituminous coal in the United States. It owns and operates three surface coal mines in the Powder River Basin named: Antelope, Cordero Rojo and the Spring Creek Mine. The Antelope Mine and Cordero Rojo Mine are located in Wyoming and the Spring Creek Mine is located near Decker, Montana. The company is headquartered in Gillette, Wyoming. " (6/20/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "On the eve of Peabody Energy's emergence from Chapter 11 in early April, we are updating our estimates and outlook for the domestic thermal coal market. In our opinion, the industry remains in a gradual cyclical recovery, even as long-term pressures remain. While power demand growth has been stubbornly anemic, greater production discipline in both coal and natural gas has led to stronger prices and declining inventories. Noticeably, we also observed further declines in miner head count, which we believe is the best proxy for aggregate coal production capacity and points to fairly tight capacity utilization. We see tremendous torque to the upside should power demand or natural gas prices surprise positively. With valuations in a range of 3.7x to 9.1x 2018 EV to EBITDA, we believe that the sector continues to offer some unique return opportunities. Our preferred long is Arch Coal (NYSE: ARCH) given its exposure to both met and thermal prices and the company's low-cost production profile. With this note, we will be upgrading Cloud Peak Energy (CLD) to Market Perform from Underperform." (3/23/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Cloud Peak is a low-cost thermal coal miner with long-life assets, growth optionality, and leverage to seaborne thermal coal markets. The company's high debt level has been an issue, but mgmt. has taken significant steps to improve the balance sheet. Further deleveraging is likely, and debt to equity conversion with FCF should be a positive. While the investment case is improving, valuation is high and we therefore initiate with a Hold rating and $5/sh target." (3/7/2017)
