Dow up 55 and all coal stocks up (WLT is up 10%). Some analysts are calling this a bottom for coal. NRP up slightly on low volume. Natural gas up 1%.
Surprised that NRP closed up today. Big news is that WLT closed up 16.5% (was up as much as 19%). Might have been short covering. Like NRP. WLT depends on met coal for survival.
Will buy a few more NRP shares below $21.50.
Motley Fools very negative coal comments today. Stern A has upgraded coal stocks today. NRP is the only coal stock down at this hour.
