It's not inside information that floods in Australia affected BTU's sales last quarter. I won't go into earnings being long, especially because of big move up. I may reshort shares I covered two weeks ago last Friday morning. That move may have been ridiculous (and a gift), but the question now is where BTU will be after earnings announcement.
Thats a stupid statement last quarter all coal companies had mega tons of coal they couldn't ship because the railroads couldn 't dump the old fashion rail cars as they were frozen on the bottom couldn't dump to give mt cars back to fill.
Thats why NSC have ordered 3000 new rail cars. coal companies will add at least 25 percent that the cost of mining was in the last quarter.
Profits will soar for all coal companies this quarter
