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.
