06:43 EDTANR, ACI, APA, CLDNatural gas, renewable energy to benefit from EPA rule, NY Times says
The carbon reduction rules proposed by the EPA yesterday will boost natural gas and renewable sources of energy, according to The New York Times. Natural gas prices could rise as much as 25%, said Chris Faulkner, the CEO of Breitling Energy (BECC), and renewable energy providers may have an easier time securing financing for projects, the newspaper stated. Meanwhile, most utilities should be able to meet the requirements in the rule "without undue stress," while an executive of coal miner Cloud Peak Energy (CLD) predicted that there would still be significant demand for coal, the newspaper reported. Publicly traded coal companies include Alliance Resource Partners (ARLP), Alpha Natural (ANR), Arch Coal (ACI), CONSOL (CNX), Cloud Peak (CLD), Peabody (BTU) and Walter Energy (WLT). Publicly traded solar energy companies include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), First Solar (FSLR), JA Solar (JASO), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE). Publicly traded electric utilities include Dominion (D), NextEra Energy (NEE), and Exelon (EXC). Natural gas producers include Southwestern Energy (SWN), Chesapeake Energy (CHK), Cabot Oil & Gas (COG), and Apache (APA). Reference Link

Arch Coal announced that it is idling the Cumberland River Coal Company complex. The Cumberland River complex comprises two underground operations and related facilities. 213 full-time positions will be eliminated by idling Cumberland River. "With this move, we are actively responding to currently challenged metallurgical coal markets while striving to enhance our overall competitive cost position in Appalachia," said John Eaves, Arch's president and CEO. "Our strategy is to increasingly shift our portfolio toward higher-margin, lower-cost metallurgical coal operations, while retaining our valuable reserves for when market conditions strengthen in the future."

11:38 EDTANR, ACICoal producers retreat after Morgan Stanley lowers price forecast
Shares of some coal producers are falling after Morgan Stanley reduced its price targets on several names in the sector. WHAT'S NEW: Morgan Stanley analyst Evan Kurtz warned that metallurgical coal prices may rebound more slowly than the firm had previously expected. The firm's commodity forecasters reduced their outlook for met coal prices to $133 from $160 per ton in 2015, Kurtz reported. Chinese imports have been weak so far this year, as exports to that country from Australia have risen, the analyst explained. However, production cuts should still help prices rise next year, Kurtz stated. Nonetheless, he cut his price target on Walter Energy (WLT) to $16 from $26, on Alpha Natural (ANR) to $4 from $5 and on Arch Coal (ACI) to $2 from $3. He kept an Overweight rating on Walter Energy, an Equal Weight rating on Alpha Natural and an Underweight rating on Arch Coal. COMPANY NEWS: In addition to the analyst opinion, two of the companies in the sector, Walter Energy and Westmoreland Coal (WLB), announced news this morning. Walter Energy announced that it has commenced a private offering of $320M aggregate principal amount of 9.5% senior secured notes due 2019. Walter also disclosed in a regulatory filing earlier that its preliminary metallurgical coal production for Q2, including both hard coking coal and low-volatility pulverized coal injection product, was 2.5M metric tons, and that its preliminary metallurgical coal sales for Q2 was 2.7M metric tons. Additionally, Walter noted that it incurred severance charges of approximately $7M in Q2 in connection with the idling of its mines in Canada. For its part, Westmoreland disclosed in a regulatory filing that the company currently anticipates reporting adjusted EBITDA in the range of $35M-$38M for the three months ended June 30. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On June 20, another research firm, Sterne Agee, recommended that risk-tolerant investors buy Alpha Natural. The firm predicted that the company would benefit from normalizing thermal and metallurgical coal prices. According to Sterne Agee, the market was underestimating several of Alpha Natural's positive catalysts. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Walter Energy sank 5.4% to $5.82, Alpha Natural gave back 7.2% to $3.37, Arch Coal retreated 5.2% to $3.22, and Westmoreland sank 5% to $34.97.
