  • 10/17/2017 – Warrior Met Coal was given a new $26.00 price target on by analysts at FBR & Co. They now have a “hold” rating on the stock. They wrote, “This morning, 10/17, MSHA released Warrior’s most critical MSHA number for 3Q17, reporting production for Mine No. 7. HCC beat our production estimates, having produced 1.14 million short tons at Mine No. 7 and 0.48 million short tons at Mine No. 4 (as previously reported). Production decreased at both mines compared to the prior quarter. Mine No. 7 output declined 250,000 short tons QoQ and Mine No. 4 output declined 36,000 short tons QoQ. Although production was slightly higher than we expected (by about 100,000 short tons), our estimates had been the low on the Street and the reported MSHA production makes a major Q3 beat less likely, in our opinion. Possible positive surprises could still occur from the sale of lower-cost inventories, stronger sales on destocking, and sales price realizations. We assume that the company destocks about 140,000 short tons but that costs per ton still rise as new hires raise the overall cost basis. Lastly, we tweaked our sales price realizations higher to $163/Mt, which would be 96% of the Q3 lagged benchmark index.””
