Peabody Energy: After A Bad Q1, Paying 3x FCF Is Probably Cheap Enough

Peabody Energy should be benefitting from soaring coal prices. However, surprisingly it's not. For Q1 2022, Peabody should be reporting strong free cash flows, yet it's reported losses. Peabody Energy should be paying out a special dividend right now. Instead, it just diluted shareholders to cover a margin call. All that being said, I believe that paying approximately 2x to 3x free cash flows is cheap enough for a diversified portfolio of energy stocks. As always, happy to discuss my thesis further.

Peabody Energy: The Right Stock At The Right Time

Thermal Coal looks to be in the early stages of a long-term bull market, and Metallurgical prices, well volatile, remain high. Peabody has the cost structure and resources to take unique advantage of this bull market. The Stock is cheap using a number of metrics.

Peabody Is Unexpected Winner Of Geopolitical Crisis

Not long ago, Peabody was seen as a miner producing something that the world is set to abandon sooner rather than later. In other words, a company with no future. The EU natural gas crisis was the signal that suggested that things are looking up for the global coal market. I bought Peabody stock in early January in response. Between the EU's quest to become 100% free of Russian energy and other global factors, any dips in Peabody stock should be seen as a further buying opportunity. Global natural gas market trends suggest that the coal market is far from seeing a significant slide in demand going forward, meaning that Peabody's outlook is increasingly looking positive for the longer term, not just in short term.

Peabody Energy: Very Positive Outlook, And Still Cheap

Peabody Energy will see its near-term prospects meaningfully improve. Peabody is set up very well with a strong balance sheet and no near-term maturities. Peabody is priced at approximately 3x this year's free cash flows. What's more, the macro environment right now is sizzling hot.

As Europe Begs For Coal, Peabody Energy Can Deliver

Coal prices have risen by over 100% this year as Russian and Indonesian exports decline. Europe's effort to reduce its dependence on Russian natural gas necessitates a significant increase in coal consumption. U.S coal mining companies with export capacity such as Peabody Energy are set to make immense profits in the current environment. I estimate Peabody may see an EPS of $10 up to potentially $35 this year, depending on how the highly volatile situation unfolds. Given shifting market dynamics against natural gas, investors should not discount the long-run potential of U.S coal miners like Peabody.
