For the first time in a long time, coal car loadings for the week ended up in the black by 2,931 over the same week last year. You can be sure this is being reflected in the stock price. Those interested in coal issues, as new buys and additions, may want to consider actions on decisions this coming week especially after coal stock sell-offs the past couple of days. Upcoming fist two weeks of March look colder perhaps at normal or below.
Competition is the best thing. Good for business, customers, good for America. Assuming we get a good first quarter report, and if we do, we move into the mid or upper 80’s this year. First time in a long time; I have my fingers crossed.
