Coal stocks move as EPA promises flexibility on carbon standards

  • The late-day rise in coal stocks (KOL) is attributed to comments by the EPA's Gina McCarthy that the agency would give states "significant flexibility" in meeting carbon emission requirements from power plants; the EPA will propose the standards next June, McCarthy says.
  • Analysts say such flexibility would be especially positive for James River Coal (JRCC +9.7%), whose shares momentarily popped 25% before calming down a bit.
  • Also: ACI +3%, ANR +1.4%, BTU +0.6%, WLT +1.3%, CNX +1.6%, CLD +0.8%, ARLP -0.2%.
