    Solid qtr

    Wasn't revenue of 296M a solid beat too? EPS was a slight miss at 0.52? Am I reading this right? Guidance wasn't spectacular but not horrible either since average cost of NG was $3.61. The stock already fell from $32 to $24 I think it's time to head back up to $30 this was a solid quarter premarket or the next few days don't matter to me. I liked the earnings. Anyone else have any thoughts?

    Bought another chunk at 5.82

    I am long 4 of the coal names myself Kem60 but I sadly agree with Fisherman here. It's really hard to gage where they stop this madness. I for one have a gut feel they push this to unreal levels similar to the way they crushed solar (I am not trying to compare to solar i know it's totally different). I am just comparing to the type of washout that happens at cycle bottoms. I have no doubt in my mind we see 4 to 8 baggers in these names. The question is does it happen from $3 pps or $5 pps? Save some firepower and watch the weekly and daily candles for some sign of bottoming. Don't buy unless you see more than a few days confirmation though, since every up day is typically followed by a downgrade or down day. Good luck longs. I am on your side, but from a technical level I am fearful we see one last wave of selling before stabilizing.

    Where do you find this data in real time? Or is it just a daily close from the previous day?

  • ejtrewni ejtrewni May 16, 2014 4:49 PM Flag

    so since ANR and ACI are $4.50 this should be? I hope more shorts like you have the same reasoning behind why a stock deserves to be a certain price. Lets just forget about market caps and other things while you are at it why not just place a $4.50 price on BTU and CLF too.

    Yet you have time to post here at least 50 times a day? On top of posting here at midnight on weekends? You crack me up. I think I have posted a total of 3 times this week on top of barely having time out of my work day to even look at these message boards. Yet some of you shorts think you can control the price of the stock and scare out retail longs by posting here 50 times a day.

    Post your trades in real time exactly when they happen such as the amount of shares you go short or long. Otherwise it's all smoke and mirrors. Any fool can spam message boards after the fact. I don't want to hear I shorted at $4.50 two days ago. I want to here at 12:55 p.m. I shorted 5000 shares of ANR at $4.21, also post when you cover. So I can record the timestamp of the purchase as proof. Otherwise, you are just another fast food college boy trying to make $25 after commission on a meaningless trade.

    While I agree that we are VERY close to a bottom of the cycle I would not reccomend going all in. I have a large position in each, but by no means am I all in. I have ANR/ACI/WLT/BTU/CLF. They way I look at it is if 1 doesn't survive the rest will. This will all blow over and have a 2 to 4 year bull run just like this ugly bear cycle.

    Tell me a coal company that isn't beat up (even peabody is crushed just not as much). So you are saying every coal company has bad management? They are doing what they can to survive the idiot regulations and weak cycle prices.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • it's a giant game of cat and mouse with these idiot market makers. For instance ANR was the only green stock yesterday and now it will be the worst performer today. It's comical. Does anyone remember what profit potential these companies have once coal goes back to the mean price? I am not saying it will see 2008 prices, but the mean is very doable in the near term especially with supply being cut now.

    Anyone Greedy with PCX and JRCC when

    I don't want it to go to $2, but these market makers have been relentless. I am long at $5.20. Until Technicals change I can't figure out for the life of me when they stop this nonsense. But you get my point. Regardless of where this goes short term. This is a $20+ stock.

    I never bought either. However I am long ANR and ACI and CLF. Every coal company can't go bankrupt. It's not even remotely realistic. The ones that survive will be at minimum 4 baggers. ANR will be a survivor. It may go to $2.00 on a final massive washout but who cares when the ultimate outcome is $20's.

    Why are we down and ACI up?

    ejtrewni ejtrewni May 7, 2014 12:33 PM Flag

    They all will go up by 2015 anyway. what's 14 cents or even $1.00 when the ultimate outcome will be mid 20's minimum. LIkely an overshoot to 50 or 60 once the cycle rinses and repeats. These daily fluctuations the past 3 years are enough to turn you grey. The best thing to do is pyramid in slowly the past 3 years and hold for a cyclical turn. It's coming likely by fall. Barring bankruptcy which is a less than 1% risk this is at minimum a $15 stock.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • At this point if you are long from say $40 and still long you are not selling. The only people to get scared out would be the buyers down here at $4 range. Personally I am in at $5 a share and going to add once technicals point to a buy. I think it's funny they hammer this sector for 3 years to a point where ANR is trading at cash and 1/5th of revenue. Yes there is a "chance" of bankruptcy but barring that 1% chance this stock should be nowhere near $4. It should easily be in the teens. Buy this and hold it in your IRA for 10 years you won't be disappointed coal isn't going away for at least 50 years.

    Maybe you are right I don't have a large position anyway and I only recently went long around $6. So even if I am wrong and this goes to zero I think it's worth the risk. I also own a bigger position in BTU. I still think the sector gets a good year or 2 of love soon. Maybe that won't start til fall who cares but I have very little in this so I can wait. If technicals change and this can close above key resistance levels on the weekly charts I will add more until then I will let the market decide on where this is going. If you are long or have been long selling down here is useless. Especially if you only have 3 to 5k shares. Call it a lotto ticket. I personally believe it's more than a lotto ticket. Time will tell who is right and who is wrong.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • I mean what am I missing here? I know I am beating a dead horse by saying this, but how can a company be worth $4 a share when they were offered $100+ a share from CLF in a possible buyout before the recession and that was before owning massey assets? I get the fact that thermal and met demand are in the tanks, I get the fact that we are losing money. However, I just cannot believe ANR can only be worth a 950M market cap. Is this the typical overshoot to the downside (similar to the overshoot to the upside )?
    This is getting beyond the point of ridiculous. I am long, but it concerns me that no activist investor isn't stepping in and insiders aren't buying hands over fist. I guess I will just have to wait til the perfect storm event before I add more shares here, but to me this just seems like a no brainer long down here. As long as you can take the pain. Anyway I ramble on good luck longs, I have done countless hours of research and aside from bankruptcy which I see as a low risk to me this stock should be a minimum of $12. Take care all!

    When this turns and it will all of us retail traders will not have much time or guts to purchase it. The key is who will hold for the long run? Most will sell at $7 or $8 just to wipe their hands clean. However one of these weeks or months it will just run and run and run and before you know it ANR is $25 with upgrades. That's how these Wall Street criminals work. You can't beat them so your only option is to join them in their games. Don't fall for all the noise.

    Once technicals improve buy with both hands even if that means you don't buy this until it breaks out above 10. I know when I see this thing get red hot along with the entire sector I will be doubling or tripling my position. Until then I refuse to add more because there is no telling how much more they want to wash out weak hands.

    Oh and for those that think all coal is bankrupt it just cracks me up. Maybe one or two more will be, but I assure you the ones that survive will be a minimum of a 5 bagger. So even if you put equal money in BTU/ACI/ANR/WLT and one goes belly up who cares as long as ONE of them works out good for you. I am long all 4.

    ejtrewni ejtrewni Apr 11, 2014 1:36 PM Flag

    I am in CLF/ANR/WLT and have options in BTU and KOL. I hear ya Ben. I think ANR has the chance to go up the highest out of all of them. It boggles my mind how this is $4.24. But what gets cheap can get cheaper but eventually like JCP did this thing will come back to reality. I am 100% in agreement with your research and knowledge Ben. Even though many think you are always blowing smoke I have done my DD and refuse to fall for all the downgrades and nonsense from market makers.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Looks like it's the market makers who are net short trying to capture more gains. Looks like the pain isn't over quite yet. Be cautious and if you scale in do it real slow might be one more final flush like they did with the solar sector. Save some ammo in case this even gets worse. However, i suspect the flush is close to over this is down from 19 to 7. The market cap is attractive here beyond belief. Anything other than bankruptcy and this is $30 in a few years. Obviously any company can go bankrupt, but given the fact that the world still needs coal there is no way in heck every coal company is going under. The survivors will be 5 to 10 baggers.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • ejtrewni ejtrewni Apr 9, 2014 4:15 PM Flag

    You might be right since most of the names are down 50 to 60% from the start of year already so the flushout may have already happened. Also downgrades are happening on a daily basis instead of a monthly basis. Also 2 bankruptcy's have happened. All of these are usually near the end of a bear cycle. However, I still like to wait for Technicals to lineup completely. I won't be convinced until ANR closes above $9 on a weekly chart.
