What's in Store for Alliance Resource (ARLP) in Q2 Earnings?

Zacks Equity Research

Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. ARLP is set to report second-quarter 2019 results on Jul 26, before market open. In the first quarter, the partnership witnessed a positive earnings surprise of 49.28%.

Let’s see how things are shaping up prior to the upcoming results.

Here's What Could Drive Results

In January, Alliance Resource acquired interests in AllDaleMinerals LP and AllDale Minerals II, LP, which provided the partnership access to some of the premier oil and gas production regions in the United States. Alliance Resource gained control of approximately 42,000 net royalty acres in the Anadarko, Permian, Williston and Appalachian basins. We expect the partnership’s second-quarter results to benefit from royalty income generated by these acquired mineral interests.

Alliance Resource’s second-quarter earnings are expected to benefit from higher thermal coal export volumes as demand for thermal coal is increasing in Indian Peninsula and other Asian markets.

Q2 Expectations

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter 2019 earnings per unit is pegged at 67 cents. The projected figure suggests year-over-year increase of 4.69%. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter sales is pegged at $530.02 million, suggesting year-over-year rise of 2.69%.

Earnings Whispers

Our proven model does not show that Alliance Resource is likely to beat earnings this quarter as it does not possess the key components. For a beat, a stock needs to have a positive Earnings ESP and a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), 2 (Buy) or 3 (Hold). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.
