Bloomberg reported that Arch Coal announced a deeper fourth quarter loss than had been expected as waning demand pulled sales down.
As quoted in the market report:
The fourth-quarter net loss was $295.4 million, or $1.39 a share, compared with net income of $70.9 million, or 33 cents, a year earlier, St. Louis-based Arch said in a statement today. Excluding an asset writedown and other items, the loss was 42 cents a share, missing the 14-cent average of 23 analysts’ estimates compiled by Bloomberg.
