NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Arch Coal (ACI) shares are up 4.7% to $2.99 on Tuesday after reporting a second quarter net loss of 46 cents per share, 2 cents better than the loss analysts were anticipating.
The quarterly results were mixed with revenue falling 6.9% to $713.8 million, well below analyst expectations of $718.5 million.
TheStreet Ratings team rates ARCH COAL INC as a Sell with a ratings score of D. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate ARCH COAL INC (ACI) a SELL. This is driven by several weaknesses, which we believe should have a greater impact than any strengths, and could make it more difficult for investors to achieve positive results compared to most of the stocks we cover. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its unimpressive growth in net income, disappointing return on equity, poor profit margins, weak operating cash flow and generally high debt management risk."
