Jefferies initiates coverage on Peabody Energy (NYSE: BTU) with a Buy. PT $65.00.

The firm said, "We believe Peabody's valuation reflects a bearish outlook for both U.S. and global seaborne coal fundamentals. We remain confident that such a view is unfounded." The firm said there is excessive skepticism with regard to the sustainability of current PRB prices. As skepticism abates, they expect BTU shares to trade higher.
