Jastrzebska Spolka Weglowa SA (JSW), the Polish company that’s the European Union’s largest coking coal producer, dropped for the first time in five days as the outlook for coal prices deteriorated.
The stock plunged 2.3 percent to 103.5 zloty, the most in a weak at 12:05 p.m. in Warsaw.
JSW, as the company is known, sees the benchmark price of the coal falling to a range of $210 to $215 a ton in the second quarter from a $235 a ton for the first quarter, Deputy Chief Executive Officer Grzegorz Czornik said at a conference in Warsaw today.
