UBS maintains a 'Neutral' on James River Coal (NASDAQ: JRCC) price target of $2.50 (from $4.50).

Analyst, Shneur Z. Gershuni, said that after Standard & Poor’s cut JRCC’s corporate rating to CCC+ and lowered the company’s $275 million senior notes and convertible notes, he expected an increase in the cost of debt.

Gershuni said, "As a result of the increased cost of capital, we are lowering our NAV-derived PT to $2.50 from $4.50. We would guide investors toward names with stronger balance sheets, no looming debt maturities, and positive cash flow generation. For met exposure we would point to Walter Energy (NYSE: WLT). For thermal exposure we would point to CONSOL Energy (NYSE: CNX)."
