Who's Leading This Coal Industry Stalwart?

Having a chairman or a CEO who has been recognized as being at the top of his or her class is a badge of honor for any company. Look at the most successful companies in the world -- competent management is likely to be one of the strongest bonds that they share. That's why I believe that Peabody Energy (NYSE: BTU  ) is a prime candidate for a rebound; if any coal company would experience one, it would be Peabody. 

In my mind, Greg Boyce has this company positioned to succeed, regardless of what takes place in the domestic marketplace. He has delivered investors access to the Chinese and Indian markets, both of which are expected to drive coal demand over the next five to 10 years. He has also largely shielded investors from higher-priced coal basins in favor of the ones that are most competitive with natural gas. For more, tune in below.

Curious to know more about Peabody's future with Boyce steering the ship?
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.
