ianbrewster: Peter, the main driver of the WTN price is the Walter share price. if you hold on, you will get 70% of shares in cash @ CAD 11.50 and 30% WLT which you could sell for USD111.01 my calcs give a value of £7.49 per WTN share (less cost of selling WLT) against a £7.38 (less costs) that you would get if she sells now. What to do? exchange rates could move either way, WLT shares could move either way...

hpotter: Am I right in my reading of the RNS. The price is $11.50, no matter what the Walter Energy share price. The cash or number of shares just gets adjusted to $11.50. Hence no change in WTN share price although the Walter Energy share price has increased.

edmondj: FT Alphaville latches onto fresh 500p target from Arbuthnot: NH I imagine you are referring to the bid for McArthur Coal overnight NH by Peabody NH $3.3bn deal NH and it has certainly boosted the share prices of a few coal miners over here Caledon Resources PLC (CDN:LSE): Last: 51.75, up 2.5 (+5.08%), High: 52.25, Low: 50.00, Volume: 1.47m GCM Resources PLC (GCM:LSE): Last: 163.00, up 18.5 (+12.80%), High: 167.00, Low: 151.00, Volume: 327.08k Western Coal Corp (WTN:LSE): Last: 400.00, down 2.5 (-0.62%), High: 402.50, Low: 401.50, Volume: 12.74k NH and as luck would have it NH I have some comment NH from Arbuthnot NH Overnight, the first major piece of M&A activity since BHP secured a 55% increase in the coking coal benchmark price commenced with major US Coal producer Peabody Energy making an approach for Australian producer Macarthur Coal. Macarthur's share price closed up 16% at A$14.05 after rejecting the all cash, conditional proposal of A$13.00 a share. NH Re-emergence of M& A reminds us of 2008. This re-emergence of M&A activity is major news for the coal sector and is likely to again lift valuations across the board, particularly for independent companies operating in the Bowen Basin in Australia, similar to the peak in M&A activity witnessed in 2008 during the high point in coal prices. NH Peabody have offered A$3.3bn (US$3.1bn) in cash for Macarthur Coal, conditional on dropping Macarthur's current bid for Gloucester Coal and gaining shareholder & FIRB approval. Given Macarthur's current planned production of c.5mtpa, this bid values Macarthur on forward estimates of 7x EV/EBITDA, 12x PE and $2.5/t EV/Resource tonne. Since the share price has moved past the offer price, these metrics have increased to 7.5x EV/EBITDA and 13x PE. During the 2008 peak in prices and M&A commotion, multiples as high as $5/t and 10x EV/EBITDA we paid for coal assets. NH So does its position as Second largest Independent PCI supplier. Given Macarthur Coal's position as the largest independent seaborne producer of PCI coal, we expect Western Coal will also benefit from this news given its position as the second largest PCI producer in the same market (there is also positive read across for Caledon Resources given its position in the Bowen basin and suppressed valuation). Western's multiples are undemanding On our numbers, Western, which is planning production of 5.4Mt in FY11, lifting to 7Mt in FY12, trades on forward multiples of 5x EV/EBITDA, 9x PE and $3.5/t on the mining EV/resource metric, giving Western 30-40% upside on its financial metrics. NH Buy Western Our valuation on Western has proved too conservative; therefore we raise our target price (which has been surpassed) to 500p on the back of the re-emergence of major M&A activity and likely valuation increases that will result. We therefore maintain our Buy recommendation on Western Coal. Caledon Resources – Macarthur Coal News – on the back of the Macarthur Coal News we also re-iterate our strong buy and 80p TP on Caledon.

rs2ooo: Going by basic bb posting patterns for various shares, it certainly seems that there is a correlation between posting volume and share price fluctuations. My (tongue in cheek) conclusions are: 1) Falling share price: Medium to high bb posting volumes containing numerous posts by derampers, lots of bickering and name calling, posts claiming stock manipulation and forced selling sprinkled with the occasional ramping post complete with a copy/pasted positive RNS from 8 months ago. DON'T BUY. 2) After a lengthy period of falling share price: Days on end with no posts, very little share price movement, share price doesn't respond to any news, low volume and quite a boring looking equity. A LOW RISK BUY WITH GREAT POTENTIAL. MAY HAVE TO WAIT A FEW MONTHS. 3) Gradually rising share price with a sprinkle of volatility: Gradually Increasing bb posting volume complete with intelligent and well researched posts. Relationship building between the main 4 or 5 posters who welcome newcomers and new research. Lots of posts calculating potential earnings surrounded by friendly debate. YOU'VE PROBABLY MISSED THE BOTTOM BUT THIS ONE STILL HAS PLENTY OF LEGS IN IT. 4) Share price rising at good pace: Posting volumes are increasing further and there is becoming more and more interest in the company. The company is being mentioned in various newspaper articles and continually being tipped. Newcomers appearing on the bb almost daily, usually claiming to have been holding for months. RISKY BUY. 5) Share price rising very fast: Posting volumes are through the roof, each time you log into ADVFN your company is at the top of the bb list. You go for a mid morning pee and come back to find an extra 400 posts. 50 of these contain level 2 screen shots, 50 are comments about how the shorters have been burnt in hell and deserve to die. New posters are arriving by the hour, again claiming to have had faith in the company all along having held since 1p. There are another 50 posts filled with incorrect information and people claiming to be 'close' to insiders. There are about 5 posts from people who sold and are happy with their profit despite the continually rising share price There are 45 posts from people slagging them off for being "mugged" for their shares at such "poor" value. The other 200 posts are future share price predictions, usually at least triple the current share price, many predicting that this will occur by Thursday. SELL SELL SELL !!!! RS

rs2ooo: As this bb has become so dead lately, I decided to read some of the 2007 posts. I was actually looking for a correlation between bb posting volume and the share price as of November 2007 when the WTN share price was at the bottom. Interesting how completely wrong most of the copy/pasted coal related press articles and analyst predictions were. There was one post however that I wish I took note of. In fact, I bet the poster himself, despite being well researched on WTN, wishes he also truly believed in his post: pbracken - 18 Dec'07 - 12:11 - 1421 of 3306 $5 strike price for WTN shares. If you can keep WTN for the next 6 months, you'll make a packet. Probably the best prediction I've ever seen on a bb!!!! RS

papillon: Bad news for Queenland. I dont know if we should gloat at the possible misfortune of these people bubface even if it does potentially benefit WTN. Wishing climatic disaster on a particular part of the world seems rather cruel. Interesting post unglove; the experiences of Teck and BHP suggest to me that WTN will NOT sell 3mt for this coal year. Customers will want to defer (and in some cases re-negotiate) purchases for the remainder of this this coal year. WTN is a relatively new kid on the block and I doubt it will want to antagonise customers it has worked hard to get by insisting they take all their contracted coal in fy2008. It wouldn't surprise me if they sell a lot less than 3mt this year; say between 2-2.5mt. We have to realise that the WTN share price has been hammered; in all probability because coal/steel industry insiders have been selling and shorting this share? Has it reached bottom? Is all the bad news in the price? I dont know.

volvo: As for a deal. The company do have a buyer awaiting to sign. All the due dilligence is completed. If the turbelance in the markets and subsequent drop in WTN share price effects that deal in any way(which it hasnt so far) they have plenty of other alternatives. The strategic reveiw WILL be completed this year and WTN will be sorted(sold partnered merged whatever). It is set to be making over 50m dollars profit per month,unquote, and is set to become much more profitable in 2009 as costs go to 80/90 dollars per tonne mined and delivered. Think the answer is either pay up or we will keep it ourselves.

papillon: I think that the WTN share price got carried away on a wave of investor enthusiasm in June and that is why Conlon and Pitcher sold up. They saw that WTN was overvalued compared to the likes of FDG. They know the takeover price is not going to go much over $10, if at all. Thats why WTN was shorted by smart investors. Can somebody on this bb explain to me how WTN can go for $20 per share ($4.5 billion) when FDG, with all those reserves of Met coal, only went for $14 billion? Please make a convincing case because for the life of me I cant. Sorry I had to put all this on 3 posts but advfn wouldn't let me put it on 1 for some reason. Please look at my preceeding 2 posts for the facts and figures. IMHO $8-$8.5 is what I think WTN will go for. $10-$10.5 if more than one party is interested and someone overpays to secure WTN. Here you are pbracken and vizz; 3 detailed posts (that should be 1 longer one but for advfn) just to show that I can do some research and post more than 1 line with a share price forecast for monday!!

papillon: weemonkey, surprised to see you posting here again. Your forecasts on CBM and WTN share price performance were way off target by the way!! And your comment about speaking to APF management about the reasons for selling its CBM stake were completely discredited!! "I know about the trades that APF has been doing as I am a holder". We all do because they inform the Mkt via way of RNS. Next you will be telling us APF seek your approval first before selling any CBM!! We all know CBM is priced at a vast discount to Asset Value. If assets not included in CBM's recent (8/5/08) valuation are included then it would not surprise me to see CBM's total asset valuation to be nearer to 350p per share compared to the current share price of around 180p. If WTN share price holds up in the short term and continues to rise longer term then CBM is a dead cert to make money for its investors over the next few months and more.
