    Considering ANR Earnings... ACI is Okay

    at least, I'd say ACI is doing okay. Dividend holding. Cash position strong. No debt due for over two yrs and that's easily met w/ cash on hand. Coal industry shrinking, production down, mines closing, for sure. Meanwhile, natural gas pricing ready to move up as natural gas utilization kicks in seriously. 200 million new middle class entrants year over year in world. Energy demand will steadily rise regardless of ebbs and flows of economy. Infrastructure and steel utllization should pick up. Coal pricing should start moving up within next year. Management working very hard to establish relations in China, India. Increasing exporting capacity w/ partnerships on Gulf. Panama canal expansion project soon complete. Nice to have exports facilities in Northwest but still it's all very good. Accumulate and hold.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
