12:20 EDTBHP, WLT, ANR, ACI, CNX, BTU, JRCCCoal 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%.

05:57 EDTBHPBHP Billiton reports FY14 underlying profit $13.45B vs. $12.21B last year
BHP said capital and exploration expenditure is expected to decline to $14.5Bin the 2015 financial year and be no more than $14B should the proposed demerger be implemented. "By maintaining an internal focus and concentrating investment in our major basins we believe an average rate of return of greater than 20% is achievable for our favoured development options," the company said. It added, "With robust volume growth and further productivity gains expected, we remain confident in the outlook for the Group. On this basis, we increased our full-year progressive base dividend by 4% to 121 US cents per share for an Underlying payout ratio of 48%. We will seek to steadily increase or at least maintain the dividend per share in US dollar terms at each half-yearly payment following the demerger, implying a higher payout ratio."
