  • It'll get worse under Obama's EPA. Maybe Penn will wake up and vote for someone that won't kill the coal industry. It'll also cost higher utility prices. I guess we can start exporting more coal to China. Sometimes I wonder who the capitalist are and who are the socialist.

  • unfortunately I own CSX stock and since railroad stocks are considered a bell weather for the economy. God help us all we are headed back to 2009 lows or worse. I fear this stock to go to $7 per share and won't recover since QE is ineffective.

  • I'm a buyer a $7. CSX will have some bumps in the rails but they'll do just fine. This country and the world needs coal.
