NEW YORK ( TheStreet) - United States Steel ( X), Peabody Energy ( BTU), Arch Coal ( ACI) and Consol Energy ( CNX) are among the 10 stocks that are scheduled to release their quarterly earnings results next week. Given the bright outlook for the steel and coal industry for 2011, these stocks are an attractive buy for investors.

According to World Steel Dynamics ( WSD), the profit outlook for global steel mills in 2011 is fair to good with production seen at 1.49 billion tonnes. For 2010, WSD estimates EBITDA of global steelmakers to recover by $47 billion after facing losses in 2009. Additionally, RNCOS expects steel consumption to grow at 4% CAGR during 2010-2012, riding on the strong demand in the U.S. automobile sector.

As for the coal industry, a Dahlman Rose analyst said coal shortages and supply disruptions are coming at a time when global world demand for these commodities is on a roll. Under these circumstances, coal stocks present a good buy opportunity. Additionally, BlackRock analyst Daniel Rice believes that the prices of coal stocks are likely to double as oil prices reach the $100 a barrel mark.

The stocks are stacked based on their earnings release date.
