Dahlman Rose downgraded Walter Energy (NYSE: WLT) from Buy to Hold.

Analyst, Daniel Scott, said, "Walter is far and away the most heavily exposed met name in our group, with 9.6 million tons of premium quality met sales in 2013 and 3.0 million tons of high-quality PCI, according to our estimates...The company began 2012 with $128 million in cash. Even if expected capital expenditures through 2013 are not lowered, Walter should have adequate liquidity to weather the 2013 storm. We downgrade to Hold based on the weak short-term outlook, but expect the company to recover strongly in the event of a recovery."
