Obama is a paper tiger without the guts or more importantly the power to demolish the coal industry. The regs to be proposed are not final regs. Once they are made final, a dozen state AG's are lined up ready to challenge them in court. Meanwhile, threatening to put an American industry out of business will almost guarantee a Republican victory in November. With a Republican Congress and many Senate Dems more afraid of their voters than a lame-duck President, the EPA will be neutered.
Look, this stock is being "walked down." You see it on the chart. It's not in free-fall. It's being very carefully manipulated down (along with the news, btw) to scare mom and pop out of this stock ahead of Monday. Once Monday comes, it'll be a classical case of buy the news and ANR will pop higher.
Think for yourself and don't let WS steal your money.
ANR is the largest coal supplier. Obama cannot afford to see the company to go under; i.e., a lot of people will be out of work or on welfare (food stamps) plus who is going to pay the government the taxes.
