    The prognosis for recovery of what? Coal? Steel? The financial well-being of the consumer to buy houses and cars?
    2014 may become a sticker shock year for many when they realize that their monthly Obamacare health insurance payments exceed their monthly car payment. The Affordable Care Act, which the Supreme Court ruled as a tax, will dampen consumer discretionary spending. The auto loan delinquency rate is already climbing at a alarming rate. Housing appears stalled.
    The current administration's energy agenda seems to be "kill Old King Coal, so the baby can survive." The EPA has turned a blind eye to hydraulic fracturing for natural gas that endangers our drinking water supply. Oops. Sorry, we didn't mean to pollute that aquifer that supplies drinking water to 3 states.
    WLT usually takes a hit with the thermal coal stocks, but the steels are the ones to watch. I did not hear Obama say anything in his State of the Union address that would float steel's boat.
    I do not have a crystal ball, but the stock price will move up when the buyers outnumber the sellers. Watch their chart.
