The analysts are predicting about $3.30 for the next two quarters. If this is so, we are looking at about $6.70 for the year. This is consistent with management's opinions on the results to be expected from the new mine. This is about double the earnings that ARLP was making a year ago. Furthermore, there is every reason to believe that earnings above $6/share are the new norm for this company. If this is the case, then we are looking at future distributions well above $5/share. If we get say an 8% return, we are looking at a $60/share stock. Baring a mine disaster, this makes ARLP very attractive.
