  • The Forgotten Issue Facing Seadrill [View article]
    Lots of people have tried to draw comparisons between SDRL and FRO but they are different businesses so I'm not sure how accurate the comparison is.

  • CSX rebuffs CP's overture [View news story]
    You would be making an already small oligopoly an even smaller oligopoly. And seeing as the government already had one case of anti competitive practices lodged and won against the major railroads...

    Yeah the only distinction SP3 has from tablets is it runs full windows. I love mine and wouldn't trade it for anything other than a surface 4 probably lol...

    Doug,
    The surface pro 3 is a fully functional laptop with no limitations that are normally associated with tablet. It is more accurately a 2in1 imho since it is detachable from the keyboard.

    Yup my only real negative at this point is it does get hot some of the time... for no real reason that I can find... Sometimes I'm charging it and using it and it doesnt get hot... other times I'll pick it up and play solitaire and it gets hot.

    Boost output to offset price decreases... sounds like a winning strategy.

  • Oil Spreads Show Relief Is Coming For Coal By Rail [View article]
    They make more money shipping grain and intermodal. Coal companies have become second rate citizens to the railroads.

    Coal generation reduced to conserve coal is most likely just in anticipation of the brutal winter that is being projected. I can't really comment though as I've not heard that plants are 'conserving' coal, nor have I heard that plants are pushing for more shipments from producers. To be clear I just haven't heard anything so I can't comment either way.

  • Coal Market Plunge Has Taken Alpha Natural Resources Down With It [View article]
    Delta,
    The earliest LNG ports with any real capacity are 2 years away, and only a handful have been approved in the US.

    So bullish for coal 5-7 years down the road sure... bullish now? Certainly not.

    Second note as I continue to read this article you mention ANR which only has 2 operations west of the mississippi that might possibly be affected by crude oil congestion...

    ANR is most affected by grain season and intermodal/merchandise movements as it pertains to Norfolk Southern and CSX...

    On a third thought I'm not going to finish as I'd hate to have more info in comments than in the article...

    Coal is shipped in a different type of car than oil is...

    Oil is liquid, coal is solid...

    I think what your trying to say is manpower and locomotives should be freed up assuming this thesis plays out. But I can tell you that a direct source in the coal industry is telling me the exact opposite of this. Railroads are further reducing allocation to coal shipments for q4 of this year and 1q of next year. A reevaluation will take place sometime around christmas/new years.
