Whitehaven Coal will post underlying earnings of $567.6m for 2018-19, according to the consensus forecast of analysts polled by Bloomberg. It would be the group’s second successive record profit, with Whitehaven benefiting from the premium at which its thermal coal has traded compared with the benchmark price. MD Paul Flynn has given indications that Whitehaven will maintain its dividend payout ratio, although some analysts suggest that it may be prudent to retain some cash given its plans to develop the Vickery and Winchester South mines.
