    • I wouldn't be surprised to see improved earnings by the end of the year....jmho

    • Coals will stay around for a long time. However, shareholders will either be holding an empty bag for a long time, go insane , develop an ulcer a size of piece of coal or go broke if coal companies can not come up with positive earnings, news about mergers or debts consolitations.

      • FBI:

        In the last report quarter, excluding one time items, operation-wise, ACI lost $0.60 on each ton of coal sold. Yes they lost 60 cents, two quarters and two nichels on each ton of coal sold.

        It was a loss but it was an extremely tin margin of loss, when coal is sold for well above $100 per ton in international market, and MUCH HIGHER than the US prices, what is the odd you think there is that ACI can never close this un-profitable 60 cents per ton gap and never turn a profit?

        I would say that chance is pretty goodthat coal price can move up by $0.60/ton pretty quick and can move up by asmuch as ONE HUNDRED TIME bigger than that gap. Thus ACI will be making a gigantic profit on higher coal prices.

        Stick to coal. If ACI only makes $10/ton profit on coal, a very moderate profit margin, then that's enough to justify ACI at $100 per share.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy
