Natural Resource Partners Is Poised To Perform Well In The New Era
The metals and mining sector has had a horrible decade and with it, Natural Resource Partners. Present conditions suggests that demand for minerals is set to increase and with that, the company is poised to grow and fatten profitability. In an era of de-globalization, the company’s assets will become more valuable. Natural Resource Partners’ free cash flows are trading at a yield of 25.49% and the stock is cheap by historical and relative measures.
Natural Resource Partners: Lifeline From Eastern Europe, Upside Remains Limited
Natural Resource Partners saw their distributions saved by the strong coal prices of late 2021. This also sent their cash flow performance surging higher, which if continued would see their best annual results in recent history since at least 2018. When looking ahead, their thermal coal production is heavily weighted towards the Illinois Basis and thus stands to benefit via exports to Europe following their ban on Russian imports. This would normally see prospects for distribution growth but sadly, an obscure term within their credit facility creates a problem since it would reduce their covenant leverage ratio limit. Since this limits their ability to reward unitholders, I only believe that upgrading to a hold rating from my previous sell rating is appropriate.
