Keep in mind Peabody is projecting (at least) a small positive earnings this year. ACI, a huge loss.
For perspective, BTU paid out a total of $91M in dividends to shareholders in 2013, AND voluntarily pre-paid over $200M in debt. So I just don't think that $91M is a big deal to them, its a given for shareholders. I don't expect it to increase either however, they've said their extra cashflow is earmarked for prepaying debt.
no actually the yield is increasing nicely with the recent drop in the stock, rest assured the big money is taking notice. same cycle as usual, pump- dump- stop out little guy - accumulate - run up.
guess where we are now? hint, the little guy has been stopped out.
