The firm has lowered its rating on ACI from "Neutral" to "Sell," and has given the company a $3.00 price target. This price target suggests a 33% decline from the stock's current price of $4.53. Analyst Neil Mehta noted: "(1) among the highest leverage ratios and lowest returns under our coverage, (2) valuations near historical peak levels, (3) a thermal outlook less bullish than consensus, as coal plant retirements and relatively low PRB pricing will likely weigh on earnings and (4) below-average earnings growth, even if met coal prices recover above our forecasts."

FBR Capital Resumes Coverage of Arch Coal at "Outperform" (ACI)Aug 28, 2013FBR Capital analysts resumed coverage on Arch Coal Inc (ACI) on Wednesday, giving the coal producer a bullish rating following the divestiture of its Canyon Fuel subsidiary for $423 million in net proceeds. The analysts rate ACI as "Outperform" and see shares reaching $6. This price target suggests a 30% upside to the stock's Tuesday closing price of $4.62 per share. "More importantly, we reiterate our investment thesis on ACI, as we continue to believe that the company has done a good job of extending debt maturities to wait for improvement in coal markets and selectively trimming the asset portfolio to opportunistically de-leverage the balance sheet," FBR Capital analyst Mitesh Thakkar stated. "With the completion of the divestiture, Arch Coal has a pro forma cash balance of $1.3B (including marketable securities), a majority of which could be used to pay down debt once coal markets stabilize and ACI resumes free cash flow generation." Arch Coal shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Wednesday. The stock is down 36.89% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of Arch Coal (ACI) offer a dividend yield of 2.60% based on Tuesday's closing price of $4.62 and the company's annualized dividend payout of 12 cents per share. Arch Coal Inc (ACI) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 2.6 out of 5 stars.

The analysts noted that they prefer better coal names given the stock's recent outperformance. Deutsche Bank rates ACI as "Hold" and sees shares reaching $5.

Here, EBITDA was $111m vs DBe of $104m due to higher PRB shipments and lower opex. Outside the #s, key details were lower capex ($280-310m vs $300-330m) & opex guidance, reduced met coal shipment outlook by 500k to 8m t (idled 2 mines) and its Leer start-up was pushed to 4Q. Despite some positives, our ests are trimmed to reflect contract positions, the asset sale and lower coal volumes/prices, and these new ests are: F13=$1.37 loss (was $1.33 loss), and F14=$0.73 loss (was $0.30 loss). Further, ACI is now trading at 13x (not proforma) and 9x our 2013-14 EBITDA ests vs peer average of 13x and 8x and our PT goes to $5 (vs $6.5 prior) or 10x '14 EBITDA," said Deutsche Bank analyst David Martin.

"The sale of our Utah operations is advantageous for Arch and our shareholders, allowing us to monetize assets in our portfolio that aren't core to our long-term strategic plans," said John W. Eaves, Arch's president and CEO. "We are pleased with the value this transaction creates, as the sale puts Arch in a strong position for an evolving domestic coal market." In addition to the $423 million in cash proceeds, Arch Coal is expected to record a pre-tax gain of $120 million in the third quarter of 2013 due to the sale. Furthermore, the company expects to see various cost savings to total more than $200 million in the period between 2014 and 2017 due to the divestiture of its Utah assets. Also, Arch Coal expects to streamline operations to see an additional $10 million in annual administrative cost savings. "This divestiture pulls forward multiple years of cash flows and reduces Arch's future capital and cost outlays," said Eaves. "Moreover, the sale of our Utah assets provides an incremental boost in liquidity, further enhancing our financial flexibility and positioning Arch for future debt reduction as coal markets rebound." Arch Coal shares were up 3 cents, or 0.67%, during pre-market trading on Monday. The stock is down 38.66% year-to-date.
