    Alpha Natural Resources (ANR +14%) powers higher after agreeing to sell its 50% interest in its Marcellus shale joint venture for $300M in cash and stock.

     

    How do you know its 25% did they disclose that?

    Rice has a slightly lower 9 month revenue number as MHR ($138.2 million) but Rice is valued at $2.7B and MHR has a market cap of $1.3B and an EV value of around $2.4B? MHR did have a much higher net loss, but still a strange disconnect.

    Funny part is all of shale assets ANR owns is worth around 1.5B. Higher than ANR market cap.

    I sent that to my friend yesterday nemonemo... I dont think they should have sold off probably be a good asset to have when $ANR goes bankrupt in 10-15 years.

    Several of you seem to have a good handle on RICE. If you had access to the IPO would you request shares? Thanks, Bill
