  • Don't Expect Another Earnings Surprise From Alpha Natural Resources [View article]
    I think ANR has the better long term story but both are in similar situations at different ends of the sinking ship.

    Met coal will always be needed as long as no new metal is discovered and replaces steel.

    Steam coal will die eventually.... haters can hate but undeniable facts are that technology will never peak and ultimately new forms of energy will develop making coal the red headed stepchild. ***** CAVEAT******* My only caveat to this point is if technology actually makes coal clean... then the greenies can't $hit on it.

    Is this hearsay jj1937, speculation, or was this printed somewhere credible?

    Acetylator... you are new here so I understand the misunderstanding. I didn't brag about knowing any particular language. For reference since you don't see to know what I'm talking about here is a link.

  • Tracking Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Portfolio - Q2 2014 Update [View article]
    You aren't making any statements by not investing in those companies... obese people are obese for many reasons including poor decision making skills, medical issues, genetics,... etc. Those companies provide goods that consumers CHOOSE to purchase.

    Personally I love a coke every now and then... it makes me feel good and it tastes delicious. Does that mean I pound 4 liters a day? Of course not.

    Stupidity, laziness, and in some cases genetics/medical issues leads to obesity not investing in companies.

    All depends on what you believe will happen in the market. If met coal recovers ANR will benefit more... if steam coal recovers and not met than ACI probably is the better of the two but in that case BTU will likely be the winner and ARLP

    PRB coals usually have a BTU rating of 8400 or less. (BTU = energy). Eastern steam coal typically has 11300 or higher (some as high 13500).


    PRB also has better sulfur numbers but higher moisture (moisture contributes to lower BTU).

  • Marketing misfire at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers [View news story]
    I don't think it was the idea that failed so much as the poor movie options in the early summer... Personally there just isn't a red robin where I live. Hoping that changes soon though!

  • Canada oil sands projects are biggest losers from low crude price, study says [View news story]
    I wouldn't completely discount the review but the $$ amount is certainly bogus. Why would any company start a project that far away from breakeven.

    Not sure who reported my first comment but the guys name is Tueffelhund which is short for the german saying "Devil Dog" often associated with US Marines... It's not derogatory so stop reporting my comments.

    Seeking Alpha stop deleting my comments just because someone "reports abuse" use some brainpower and actually look to see if it is offensive.

    It doesn't specify northern app or central app, but I think from PA to FL it's slightly more expensive... I've been out of the loop for a while now though on coal tranport pricing but several years back Northern appalachia (PA type places) was a little higher to ship south than say KY/WV for obvious reasons. That being said PA coal can get to Baltimore harbor fairly cheap.
