JPMorgan’s John Bridges and team think it’s time for investors to start looking for entry points in quality coal miners like Cloud Peak Energy (CLD), Consol Energy (CNX) and Peabody Energy (BTU). They explain why:
The enemy (high yield financing) of your enemy (natural gas) is coal’s friend: The international coal market remains weak, but we are hopeful that the funding problems the shale revolution has begun to face in the US will lead to a more balanced US gas market and better prospects for coal. We continue to feel that the shale “gale” is one part geology, one part technology with a secret ingredient of low-cost finance. While geology is fixed and the fracking technology cannot be uninvented, it’s unrealistic to expect low-cost finance to endure. The first half of 2015 could see excess gas reserves based on the rapid growth of gas supplies and relatively normal winter temperatures so far. Yet by late 2015, we expect a lower growth rate for gas supplies especially from (liquids) associated gas. The supply/demand balance for gas in 2016 is uncertain, but we are hopeful that higher cost financing will lead to reduced gas supplies – compared with expectations a few months ago – and this should help the coal equities…
We reiterate our defensive stance on the US coal sector BUT would watch out for entry points in better quality names…While the seaborne market is lackluster, we are seeing a positive story emerging for the US coal industry due to a changing landscape in the US E&P space driven by the falling oil price. This should lead to a tighter natural gas market in late 2015 and beyond and induce a positive reaction in the depressed coal names. We recommend investors look for entry points in better quality coal names (like Consol Energy, Cloud Peak Energy and Peabody Energ

In a vast sector study released today, Sanford Bernstein reiterated its positive opinion on the telecommunications equipment sector, based on a retaining substantial spending in the United States, despite the context of declining investment, a continuation of the expansion in China and a recovery in Europe.
An unprecedented visibility
Alcatel remains the preferred value of the analyst Pierre Ferragu in the sector. Sure, the income of the wireless industry are not guaranteed, given the significant exposure of the US company AT & T and its virtual absence of the European market, but this should be largely offset by improved expected margins of the group. In the other divisions, Alcatel-Lucent offers an unusual insight into 2015, which, combined with progress in the shift plan should result in operating income roughly 30% above the consensus expectations , forecasts the specialist, whose projections, it will be understood, far beyond that of his colleagues. The target price is set at 3.50 euros.

2,300km multi-terabit system will offer new low-latency connection across Tasman Sea and significantly improve capacity and resilience of New Zealand’s international telecomm services
Paris, December 18, 2014
Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) has signed a contract with a consortium composed of Spark New Zealand, Telstra and Vodafone to deploy the Tasman Global Access (TGA) undersea cable system that will connect New Zealand to Australia on a direct 2,300 km link.
Designed with a capacity of at least 20 Terabits per second (Tbit/s), the new TGA system will offer low-latency connectivity across the Tasman Sea, between Raglan, in New Zealand, and Narrabeen, in Australia. The system will provide an alternative route for trans-Tasman traffic, significantly improving New Zealand's international connectivity, as well as strengthening links into fast-growing Asian markets.
Simon Moutter, Managing Director of Spark New Zealand and Russell Stanners, CEO of Vodafone New Zealand, said: “TGA will further strengthen reliable ultra-broadband connectivity in Australasia for a growing range of applications, including cloud computing, data centre applications, content delivery, government and enterprise services. Additionally, it will enable a significant improvement in the robustness of New Zealand’s international connectivity with the rest of the world, by delivering this high capacity alternative route.”
Philippe Dumont, President of Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks said: “This project confirms the continued growth of connectivity needs in Australasia and in the Asia region overall. We are pleased to provide our 100G coherent technology to help the consortium build the Tasman Global Access cable that will significantly improve the bandwidth and reliability for traffic to and from New Zealand.”
Next Contract for ASN - Alcatel Submarine Network. The upcoming IPO will be outstanding.

A/NZ telcos to build $86.3 million trans-Tasman submarine cable
Alcatel-Lucent tapped to lay cable for 20Tbps undersea system
A 2300 kilometre undersea cable system connecting Australia and New Zealand across the Tasman Sea will commence construction in early 2015.
A consortium of Telstra, Vodafone and Spark New Zealand Cables (formerly Telecom NZ) will invest about $86.3 million in the Tasman Global Access (TGA) system. The group has signed a contract with Alcatel-Lucent to lay the submarine cable.
The TGA cable is expected to be finished by mid-2016, the consortium said.
The undersea cable utilises two fibre pairs with 20 Tbps capacity and will connect Narrabeen, Australia to Raglan, NZ. It provides an alternative route for trans-Tasman traffic to the existing Southern Cross and Tasman 2 cables, enhancing New Zealand’s international connectivity and strengthening links into Asia, Alcatel-Lucent said. The building of a new cable responds to growth in international traffic. Spark and Vodafone’s trans-Tasman Internet traffic has grown from 10 per cent of total international traffic in 2000 to 40 per cent today, the consortium said. New Zealand’s international capacity requirements are increasing at a rate of 60 percent year-on-year, it said.
“We are seeing increased data content being provided from Australia-based servers by global companies and being accessed by New Zealand internet users,” Spark managing director, Sim Moutter and Vodafone NZ CEO Russell Stanners said in a joint statement.
“An additional cable connection with Australia will strengthen the business case for international data servers to be located in New Zealand, and improve access for Australian and other international businesses to New Zealand.”
Dec 16 (Reuters) - Mining equipment maker Joy Global Inc , which gets more than 60 percent of its revenue from coal miners, reported a 4 percent fall in quarterly revenue as customers cut production.
Joy Global Inc. more than doubled its earnings in the fourth quarter, but the struggling mining-equipment maker warned that 2015 would be another challenging year amid an unfavorable pricing environment and falling industry investment in new equipment.
Numbers for both earnings and sales beat Wall Street's expectations. However, after several quarters of growth in equipment bookings, fourth-quarter bookings fell 27% to $783 million from a year ago, partly due to foreign exchange rates.
Milwaukee-based Joy, the sector's leading supply of heavy equipment, has been hit by low iron-ore and thermal coal prices, though results in recent quarters had shown improvement and signs of stabilization.
Commodity prices have declined, as an oversupply of materials reduced the number of projects approved, the company said. Joy Global said that despite improving global economic conditions that should drive demand, market dynamics are such that prices for most major commodities remain depressed, with marginal upside potential over the near-term.
