10 Mining Stocks With Strong Buy Ratings: Updated

8. Peabody Energy (BTU) is a coal company with business interests in the U.S. and Australia.

Net revenue for 2010 increased to $6.9 billion from $850 million, driven by higher volumes and pricing from mining operations in both the U.S. and Australia. Sales volume for 2010 totaled 246 million tonnes compared with 243.6 million tonnes in 2009.

Higher contributions from mining operations improved gross profit to $1.8 billion, compared with $1.3 billion in the prior year. Operating profit rose 57% year-over-year to $1.33 billion, resulting in significant cash flow generation of $1.1 billion. Overall, net income rose 76% year-over-year to $805 million.

Commenting on the better-than-expected results, Gregory H. Boyce, Peabody Energy CEO, said, "Peabody delivered the second best year in company history, with record safety performance, strong cost containment and margin expansion in every operating region."

The stock is trading at 13.0 times its 2011 earnings. Of the 26 analysts covering the stock, 22 rate a buy. The stock appreciated 39% during the last one year and is likely to gain 18% over the next one year, based on consensus estimates.
