Congress will do the right thing. Cold weathers on the way. T Boone Pickens bought 237,700 shares of Arch Coal. NatGas prices will raise. The economy will recover. Coal stocks are undervalued. The January effect and the Dogs of the DOW will rally soon....Just my opinion of course.
The US needs jobs.... the US has the richest reserves of energy.. and the technology to transform coal into a liquid, NG into a liquid... rising energy costs in other parts of the world will equlize when the transports begin ramping up... markets anticipate and price into stock. Umm... and everything you said.... The importance of this commodity is a no brainer and demand and prices are swiftly moving one way. Base building has been going on for a while now and large spikes on a 24% short position are imminent. No brainer to be long on this stock at this stage.
