3 Reasons to Buy Peabody Energy

The entire coal market has been beaten down over the last year due to punishingly low natural gas prices in the domestic market. While the overall market dynamics might have lead investors to shy away from coal producers, there are certainly several reasons why Peabody Energy (NYSE: BTU  ) could be a positive investment choice:

  1. The rapidly growing export market for coal
  2. Its high-margin Australian operation's proximity to China and India
  3. Its market-leading position in the best basins in the U.S.

There's more to know about Peabody Energy than just these three strengths:
The coal industry in the United States has been in a state of flux since the arrival of a cheaper alternative for energy production: natural gas. Exports are becoming a much bigger part of the domestic coal landscape, and Peabody Energy has deals in place to get its cheaper coal from the Powder River and Illinois basins to India, China, and the EU. For investors looking to capitalize on a rebound in the U.S. coal market, The Motley Fool has authored a special new premium report detailing exactly why Peabody Energy is perhaps most worthy of your consideration.
