    What we can gather from Nomuras statement their cost of production is "bare bones"

    Now who out there knows at what price Walters Canadian PCI is being shipped at ?

    I know that almost all of this last 2 weeks decline in the Coal sector is window dressing, but it better be that the Coal stocks will have great three months with a summer rally.

    s investors remain concerned with the company’s current balance sheet and free cash flow, the firm has reiterated a “Neutral” rating and $13 price target on WLT. The price target suggests a 15% increase from the stock’s current price of $11.10.

    Analyst Curt Woodworth believes that the company will be taking action to address investor concerns in the next couple months.

    Woodworth noted, “in the short run, we expect Walter will significantly reduce capital spending by an additional ~$40-50mm to bare bones levels and now forecast the dividend to be suspended at the upcoming board meeting in July, saving an additional $31mm. We expect WLT to begin to turn its stranded inventory at Brule into cash over the next several quarters via reduced mine production,” the analyst comments. These steps will allow the company to achieve covenant relief in the short run, the analyst said, and they believe the company is likely to look again at alternatives to restructure / refinance term loan A sooner rather than later.”

    On Wednesday, Nomura Securities reported that it has maintained a “Neutral” rating on metallurgical coal producer, Walter Energy, Inc. (WLT).

    As investors remain concerned with the company’s current balance sheet and free cash flow, the firm has reiterated a “Neutral” rating and $13 price target on WLT. The price target suggests a 15% increase from the stock’s current price of $11.10.

    Analyst Curt Woodworth believes that the company will be taking action to address investor concerns in the next couple months.

These steps will allow the company to achieve covenant relief in the short run, the analyst said, and they believe the company is likely to look again at alternatives to restructure / refinance term loan A sooner rather than later.”

    Walter Energy shares were down 25 cents, or 2.20% during Wednesday morning trading. The stock is down 69% YTD.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Today WLT got hit very hard today, but its holding the price very well. We have seen the bottom now. Obama can propose what he wants, but WLT's business is mostly met coal and the energy industry is launching their own attack, and Obama has yet to be successful at doing anything...look at gun control.

    Despite that and the fed WLT HAS THE SAME VOLUME AS APPLE TODAY! Someone is serious about a take over and is buying up shares.

    Lastly, the short volume is HUGE here. No shares are available to short anywhere. That means shorty needs to cover, and will lead to a huge squeeze to put this thing back in the $13's maybe low $14's. PR will be coming shortly on the buyout as someone has enough shares for majority control. Less

  • I can see the number going from 20 to 30 million now short in the last 2 weeks.....Unlikely maybe, but HFT computers and real buying in a downtrend from the few bargain hunting funds, don't mix well !

    As you have suggested, it must be some buy and hold money somewhere on or offshore if any accumulation is really happening!

    A group like Buffet could do a convertible preferred financing and own the company and the assets, if they wanted a ten bagger.

    Real people do not make any investment decisions anymore, the computers do everything now, unless there is a M&A or some other good news like happened today to turn the WLT intraday trend from down to up... OR the posted Met Coal pricing snail crawls higher...or one of the lemming analysts decides not to jump over the Walter is worthless cliff, with the rest of their peers, etc.

    Do not forget to add in the overwhelming problem of the criminal naked SHORTS from the offshore Hedge Funds. They have relatively Unlimited selling power ....until their worm turns into a huge losss for them in the global coal sector !

    I look for QE out of CHINA soon... and more Chinese bridges to nowhere and Met Coal going up big time.
    We will see...

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • I have not bought it back yet since I need to do more research on the election etc.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • I will try to call my friends in china tonight ... about wlt and mtl

    they are and always have been interested in acquiring COAL and iron ore, so we will see in a few days what interest I can develop which will be profitable for me ...

    And as you think differently about the management than I do, ythe Chairman worked for KKR and has the best connections ... I think the largest Utility company buyouts in the U.S. was done by them ..

    Insiders,.I think they are either doing a management buyout deal or have offers for outside now that they cannot discuss... again, just an educated guess

    We will see ... WLT did not go up $10 today, so maybe I am wrong

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • No way Putin closes their new high speed Rail plant...

    When he wants to spend $200+ billion building HS Rail transportation

    and Russia will be cutting interest rates ...stimulating investment in their economy ASAP

    Oh and CHINA is going to print money big time SOON QE in China YES!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • I buy what I think is LOW and try to sell higher ... Not that many large positions a year but now MTL and WLT look great to ME! What are you buying ? I have run Hedge Funds for 20 years, have you?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Yes we will see what the future brings for WLT. The drop in the share price has been unprecedented and reaks of manipulation yesterday ... by Hedge Funds and their Prime Brokers who have discretionary accounts that they can dump at any price... You know like what the vampire squid does everyday to the investment world

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Counterfeiting Stock

    Illegal naked shorting and stock manipulation are two of Wall Street's deep, dark secrets. These practices have been around for decades and have resulted in trillions of dollars being fleeced from the American public by Wall Street. In the process, many emerging companies have been put out of business. This report will explain the magnitude of this problem, how it happens, why it has been covered up and how short sellers attack a company. It will also show how all of the participants; the short hedge funds, the prime brokers and the Depository Trust Clearing Corp. (DTCC) — make unconscionable profits while the fleecing of the small American investor continues unabated.

    Why is This Important? This problem affects the investing public. Whether invested directly in the stock market or in mutual funds, IRAs, retirement or pension plans that hold stock — it touches the majority of Americans.

    The participants in this fraud, which, when fully exposed, will make Enron look like child's play, have been very successful in maintaining a veil of secrecy and impenetrability. Congress and the SEC have unknowingly (?) helped keep the closet door closed. The public rarely knows when its pocket is being picked as unexplained drops in stock price get chalked up to “market forces” when they are often market manipulations.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • They all LIE like the DOGS they are ....with offshore accounts with no regulations at all ... They are more corrupt than the Corporations that the gamble OPM with for 2% and 20 !

    REREAD the news from 2011 if you doubt what is really going on.... Met Coal is a STEEL companies key ingrediant and the best is WLT 50% of it is used by the GERMANS

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • If only they could stop NAKED shorting ... It would be alot easier to CATCH FALLING KNIVES !

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • YOU but of course you don't have any money or a house or investments anyway now do you #$%$
