    Delayed trades: Doubled position in $BTU at $1.78, panic is running this market. Added some $ANR at 27.8c as a bit of a side gamble.

      : Both thermal and met, but thermal should reverse soon. Chinese are paying MORE for nastier (sulfur content) coal.

        Added to $ANR today for clients, 7/2/15 at $0.30. Asymmetric risk/reward from these levels in my opinion. Not a foregone conclusion of BK

          : I added $BTU at $1.78 and $ACI at $0.41. I find ACI far more likely to avoid bk than ANR, but Alpha does have natgas and met upside.

          : I like the balance sheet of Alpha better (lower debt levels), their exposure to met coal, and their natural gas assets. Both speculative.

            Delayed Trades (from Tues): Adding to $ACI at 41c (yes I overpaid- but you know I'm honest). 2x in $ANR 2021 6.25 notes at 7.745.

                $ANR desperately trying to diversify into nat gas? lol

                    News on coal is huge for $ACI, $ANR, $BTU, $CLD. Stocks are muted due to Greek worries, creating a huge buying opportunity for the last 2.

                      : Locking in high interest... YTM is often higher for closer bonds in distressed entities.

                      : It's always smartest to just buy the cheapest and/or the ones with the highest yield. In a default scenario are senior notes are equal.

                            Wouldn't be surprised if some of the bigger players were kicking the tires on $BTU. $BTU isn't $ANR, $ACI, or $WLT.

                              : Who would be buying $BTU?

                              : BHP probably. The time to buy is now. It wasn't 2011. It's funny how no one sees value here at these levels, but they did back in '11.
