"[Peabody] is best of breed coal, with Australian operations that will likely cater to Asia's coal needs, while sporting a healthy balance sheet relative to its competitors which will help it ride out the storm while paying a 1.4% dividend that is safe," said one respondent.
However, on Monday, Citigroup lowered its price target on shares of Peabody to $40.00. The analysts wrote in a note that the lower target price, which fell from $45.00, came after adjusting for a new model on coal price forecasts, according to Daily Political.
Several analysts have been following Peabody recently, with Nomura and Zacks both keeping their "neutral" rating of the stock.
