  • Coal-burning utilities predict blackouts from Obama climate pact [View news story]
    His answer is no he isn't willing to stop using electricity despite the rantings and ravings about how fossil fuels are the devil. Its the same answer every greenie gives... They talk big game but when it comes to inconveniencing them personally true colors always show.

  • Walter Energy to go bankrupt in 2015, BB&T analyst predicts [View news story]
    No problem Charbon, I'm just adding what I have heard from people in the industry. But yes the prices and benchmarks are pretty public... Just like its public knowledge rail roads are shipping crude over coal. not because the demand for coal isnt there but because shipping crude makes more money...

    You are obviously fascinated with assuming you know what people are fascinated with and what they should do in life.... I wonder why you aren't a seer or palm reader down at the boardwalk...

  • Save The Glamour And Glitz For Holiday Decorations -- Not Your Investment Portfolio [View article]
    Concerning CBI this is a good stock that for some inexplicable reason people are undervaluing extremely... But the market will stay irrational longer than I will stay liquid apparently.

  • Seadrill: Where Do Analysts Stand On Seadrill After Its Dividend Suspension? [View article]
    If SDRL is going down primarily due to oil prices going down why is the inverse not true? The only way that isn't true is if you believe SDRL is down because of reasons not including oil prices... which is an impossible argument to make at this point.

  • Why I Expect WTI To Go Back To $100 [View article]
    Possibly wall street figures but statisticians in general (or on average) start in the low 6 digits. I've never heard of one breaking 7 digits would be interested if one was ever confirmed though lol.

    Well more than that would be a 7 figure job so I don't think that is correct surplus... my stats teacher had companies asking her for stats majors with starting 6 figure salary guarantees... I'd do it if stats wasn't vomit inducing work.

  • Walter Energy to go bankrupt in 2015, BB&T analyst predicts [View news story]
    people who sell coal and mine it... like salesmen who complain about prices not moving or railroaders complaining about not making enough money off coal these days.

    My assumption is that if things continue as they are now ANR will go bankrupt as well... it is logical seeing as they are bleeding money not making it... apply that scenario to any business in any industry and the same conclusion can be assumed.

    You don't need to talk to these people though to see it, look at benchmarks, look at nat gas prices, look at current railroad focus, etc... and you can easily see the picture. This info is widely public.

  • Coal: A Casualty Of War Or Creative Destruction? [View article]
    fliper2058 you don't go far enough either...

    Appalachian coal met or steam are both under water severely at this point, the only profitable coal is western coals along with colorado basin and some PA coals.

    I'm not sure what the RR is getting per barrel shipped but it would have to be ridiculously low in order to not make more money than coal shipments.

    I get my info directly from the front lines, its not getting better and it doesn't look like that will change regardless of congress. In fact there are some rumblings that the Railroads are going to start raising prices despite the benchmarks staying the same or still heading lower.

    Met coal is roughly half it's revenue, nat gas prices remain low and so demand for thermal coal will also remain low.
