12:20 EDTBTU, ANR, CNX, WLT, JRCC, ACI, BHPCoal stocks higher after BHP executive signals confidence
Coal stocks are rallying today after positive comments were made by the head of BHP's (BHP) coal division. WHAT'S NEW: The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that BHP's Dean Dalla Valle said he expects world demand for coal to increase for decades to come. According to the report, the BHP executive added that most demand growth for coal will come from outside China, which has been the primary driver of global commodity prices in recent years. "Over the next couple of decades we expect global growth in demand for both energy coal and metallurgical coal," said Dean Dalla Valle. The executive added that India, which is "not not overly endowed with metallurgical coal," is seen as being a significant source of demand. PRICE ACTION: Shares of BHP Billiton (BHP) are higher by 0.77% in midday trading. OTHER COAL STOCKS: Walter Energy (WLT) is up 2.61%, Alpha Natural Resources (ANR) is up 1.06%, Arch Coal (ACI) is up 1.44%, CONSOL Energy (CNX) is up 1.65%, Peabody Energy (BTU) is up 1.1% and James River Coal (JRCC) is up 13.25%.

10:33 EDTBHPFreeport McMoRan surges after further cut to capital spending plans
Shares of Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) are surging in morning trading after the company announced plans to cut spending and production in response to current market conditions. It also plans to cut about 10% of employees and contractors at U.S. mining operations. WHAT'S NEW: Freeport-McMoRan this morning reduced its 2016 capital expenditure budget to $4B, approximately 29% lower than the $5.6B estimate on July 23, which it said reflects "aggressive" actions in response to current market conditions. The 2016 CapEx outlook includes $1.4B in mining projects, $600M in mining sustaining capital and $2B in oil and gas expenditures. The company said it will reduce copper sales by about 150M pounds per year in 2016 and 2017 and cut 2016 unit site production by 20%. Additionally, the company plans to reduce 2016 minerals exploration costs to $50M from $100M. Freeport also said it expects a 10% reduction in employees and contractors at U.S. mining operations. The company cited recent declines in copper prices for the reductions and said the actions announced today are the results of the previously announced review of operating plans for its mining business. Freeport said it views the long-term outlook for its business "positively," helped by limitations on copper supply. In the near-term, however, Freeport said it will continue to monitor market conditions and capital spending, but is currently "adjusting operations to maximize current cash flow under weak market conditions while preserving its large mineral resources and growth options for the longer term." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Since late 2014, Freeport has cut its 2015 capital expenditure budget to $6.3B from $7.5B, including reductions of $700M in oil and gas expenditures and $500M in mining expenditures. Earlier this month, Freeport cuts its oil and gas capital budgets for 2016 and 2017 by $900M each in response to market conditions and maintained its expectations for $2.8B in O&G CapEx for this year. In July, after reporting its second straight quarterly loss, Freeport said its cost reduction plans would include potential adjustments to mine plans and future copper and molybdenum production volumes to reduce costs and preserve valuable resources for anticipated improved market conditions in the future. Freeport previously commented that it would pursue additional capital cost reductions, potential additional divestitures or monetizations and other actions as required to maintain a strong balance sheet while preserving a strong resource position. PRICE ACTION: Freeport-McMoRan is up 16.5% to $9.22 in morning trading. Shares are down over 60% year to date. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other major integrated mining companies include Rio Tinto (RIO), BHP Billiton (BHP) and Vale S.A. (VALE).
