    • Larry Smith: Made 100% sense to me, coal and nat gas two commodities I don't want to own all in one company.

    • Peter Epstein: CNX really is better than Cramer says, even though I agree that analysts are too myopic and slow to update their thinking....

    • Windsun33: I don't see how coal and gas can go much lower - supply is dropping because of production cuts. I might buy some tomorrow

    • Ocean Man: It really is "the worst of times" for both of their products....

    • Peter Epstein: read my articles on the coal names, I written 9 in the past 2 weeks or so. Coal stocks likely dead money until better visibility on 2nd half

    • Windsun33: You are probably right, I just have this habit of buying whatever Cramer trashes.

    • Peter Epstein: not a bad strategy
      2/23/12
    • Windsun33: It has worked out pretty well in the past. I am still looking at getting into CNX if the price drops enough, but not yet

    • Peter Epstein: Alpha Natural Resources, (ANRZQ) just reported, they missed, stock down pre-market. Conf. call today. Let's see what they say

    • Ocean Man: CNX up 3% today right in Cramer's face.
      2/24/12
    • Peter Epstein: ANRZQ was up despite its earnings miss & production cuts. Bulls like further production cuts from ANR, but I believe a lot more is needed.

    • Windsun33: Apparently a lot of the ANRZQ loss was from a one time charge or write off. Most other coal stocks were also up.

    • Peter Epstein: Things at ANRZQ in the quarter were bad even beyond the big write-off. The write-off is non-cash.
