Short attack? LOL. No one cares about ANR or any of these coal companies anymore, everyone is busy making millions in the best bull market of a lifetime. The only 'shorts' who give a ratzzazz about ANR are the ones who are buying up the bonds cheap and shorting the common so that they will soon own the company debt free in BK, while common bag holders get nothing.
Winning what? Worst investors of all time award? Overall market making new highs, making investors wealthy daily in the best bull market of a lifetime. Meanwhile, coal investors are 'winning' by losing all their capital in the worst possible investment they could have ever possibly chosen. JRCC, PCX, ACI, ANR, WLT, worst plays ever during the best market ever.
could be the winner of the stupidest post of the new year award. 'Capitulation' has been an unbroken, 3 year long event which won't end prior to BK, in case you have been on Mars the past 3 years.
Only a loser who lost all their money several times over would think that collapsing energy prices will magically be good for coal. They'll let that black gold sit in the ground untapped and the moment the price rises again, the rig could will go up and the spigots will open. Meanwhile, nat gas will continue to bury coal as the price drops well below 3, and global demand for energy continues dropping as it has been for a year now. Take whatever rent money you have left after your chapter 13 BK payment and buy 3 shares of ACI, so you continue your unbroken record of total losses during the best overall bull market in history.
Oh and I forgot to thank you once again cadmium moronium for taking the long side of all the short plays I made in PCX and JRCC as they collapsed from the 20's and 30's down to nothing. My retirement account thanks you very much.
Get lost you moron, you have been wrong about everything that matters for 10 straight years, making the most HORRIFICALLY bad market calls, and losing all your money on coal plays on PCX, JRCC at 30.xx a share, now both BK, and then on ACI and ANR at 25.xx per share now sitting at less than 2, all on margin for multi hundred percent losses, using borrowed money, 401K money, et al, and before that losing all your money on EXM, shippers, UNG, and palladium plays like PAL which is now less than 10 cents on the dollar relative to where you were putting 'all your money' in it, just as you claimed to be putting 'all your money' on margin no less, including bank loans and borrowed 401K funds into the coal plays over past 3 years which subsequently ALL lost you many multiple hundred percent losses on margin. You have zero credibility on ANYTHING market call related and are the only one I know who can manage to lose ALL your money several times over during the best bull market of a lifetime.
I'm always amazed when I read posts like this from people who watch their holdings go from 30 a share to 1.5, and ultimately BK. They lose every penny in the best bull market in history and cheerily love to lose the money along the way by claiming how great it is to see their holdings collapse. The human mind is capable of the most amazing rationalizations and contortions.
Well, here we are a few months later and cadmium proved 100% wrong on 100% of everything he has ever said or invested in ONCE AGAIN. Not to worry though, even though he lost multi hundred percent on margin plays using borrowed money, 7 times in a row now on SWC, PAL, EXM, UNG. JRCC, PCX, and now WLT, he will be back,,,, once he scrapes $20 or $30 bux together from his IT job, and he will regale us all with tales of how he turned $20 into $10 Million using 'margin' re-investing, LOL! Just as he has claimed similar in the past.
I'm about as far removed from a leftist as one can be but I notice nat gas has completely collapsed, as low as it has been in years, so not sure your thesis is working. Actually, I think it might be a good time to buy UNG as a short term trade until late spring.
This has to be one of the stupidest statements I have ever seen on any forum anywhere. There has never BEEN a better short play in market history than those who shorted coal stocks the past 3 years, completely
destroying idiot know nothings like you. How can shorts be 'stupid' when they managed the best short play of all time at YOUR expense you mindless buffoon?
#$%$ are you talking about? Before the fossil fueled industrial age, lifespans were half what they are now, quality of life was horrible, modern medicine virtually non existant. You want to scrape out a hard scrabble existence like our 'forefathers' and die young of overwork, with no money, and $800 a mon th utility bills, in a post 'energy starved' economy, be our guest. The rest of us however, don't want to jump off a cliff with you.
Cadmium buffoonium, still glad you voted for the president who vowed and promised to make electricity and energy prices 'necessarily soar' with his scientific ignorance, and his EPA war on coal, which subsequently took every last penny from your investment account, bank account, 401K account, borrowed lines of credit, and all other financial resources you could scrape up,,,,,,, to buy ACI, ANR, PCX, JRCC on margin at levels 10X to 20X higher (or more) than they currently are? just wondering if you have any regrets about that election choice.
Why would anyone be offended by someone pointing out the material fact that a resource with at least 1000 years mineable domestic reserves in the ground, has no hope of becoming a short term 'peak coal' boom time story, when this is an investment forum that one would think, is focused on what might drive coal higher or lower in the next few weeks, months, years? Calling something a 'finite resource' is quite simply COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT to the investment prospects of said resource in anyone's investment horizon. it is all the genuine market supply / demand equation fundamentals, not to mention, political, technical, and economic fundamentals, that matter. Fill dirt is also a 'finite resource'.
Yes but facts are not relevant when it comes to bag holder coal cultists. Morons like cadmium who lost several hundred percent on margin in PCX, JRCC, ANR, ACI, continued spouting 'coal super cycle' nonsense, even while voting for that 'worst president of all time' Obama, who promptly destroyed all of cadmium's net worth using the EPA. Cadmium deserved to lose every dime and every borrowed dime, every 401K dime, every bank loan dime he threw away on coal after voting for Obama, but I do feel sympathy for coal miners and hope they will be put back to work someday.
Excerpts from the AP report on the Obama agreements with China;
China’s Climate Change Plan Raises Questions
By EDWARD WONGNOV. 12, 2014
BEIJING — When the presidents of China and the United States pledged on Wednesday to reduce or limit carbon dioxide emissions, analysts and policy advisers said, the two leaders sent an important signal: that the world’s largest economies were willing to work together on climate change. “This is a very serious international commitment between the two heavy hitters,” said Li Shuo, who researches climate and coal policy for Greenpeace East Asia.
..Mr. Xi said China would brake the rapid rise in its carbon dioxide emissions..
..People involved in the internal Chinese debates said the seeds of Mr. Xi’s announcement could be found in public anger over rising levels of toxic smog in China. Over the past two years, Chinese cities have recorded some of the worst air pollution readings in the world.
To address the problem, Chinese leaders have turned their attention to cutting back the country’s reliance on coal, a main pillar of the economy but also a major source of pollution..."
You've got to also get rid of all the ultra leftist 'Greenies' that have infested the agency from 6 years of Obama appointees and who they hired and fired. Not to mention the same at NASA, NOAA, and every other Federal Govt. agency in cahoots, on the "Sky is falling from C02" fraud. That is a multi year process.
Look at the border, agents want to do their job but their 'masters' from Eric Holder appointees on down, won't let them. It'll take years to undo the damage from Obama, and not all the damage can EVER be undone. Next he'll flood the country with 30 million illiterate, gang affiliated, un educated, total drain on society, aliens from south of the border (and elsewhere), who will soon BK every state in the nation, while driving crime to the stratosphere, not to mention bringing some dreared diseases like the Norovirus and some ISIS and Al Queda members along for the ride. The election gives me hope but there are decades of work ahead to undo Obama's massive damage.
Wow, isn't it incredible? Now that the Republicans took the senate and increased share in the house, and will likely take the presidency in 2 years, and then reform the EPA over the next 4, there is hope that coal may make some kind of 'comeback' uhm,,,, SIX YEARS FROM NOW, and meanwhile we have a short squeeze that is so impressive that ANR is now down only $61.76 per share instead of $61.48 per share compared to where it was 4 years ago!!! How thrilling! A few cents rebound against that $62 dollar a share loss!!!
That would be nice but the reality is, you're stuck with Obama's EPA until at least the next election. If a decent President was elected, THEN perhaps sanity would prevail once more in EPA appointments, but even so it would take a couple more years to clear out the deluded, cult of 'Global Warming Catastrophe" freaks that has infested EPA.
Of course it is your business what you invest in, and obviously, based on your flawed 'conspiracy' minded cognitive limitations, this explains why you are in the worst possible, worst loser, investment in the entire market, at a time when all other sectors are soaring to the stratosphere. Just keep consoling your self that the "MMs" are responsible, then you don't have to think about how your own choices resulted in such a terrible investment play. If there are any magical "MM"s trying to steal your money, you surely, are the easiest sheep like victim they will ever find to shear. Lucky MMs! They have you (and cadmium)
So if you really are stupid enough to believe such nonsense as that the 'MMs" want this lower, and have all along, and are in control, the question stands once again. What the hell are you doing investing in something that you KNOW is going to be manipulated lower? Did you learn nothing from PCX and JRCC? If you believe your own arguments, then you either
a) Have no business ever investing in something being 'manipulated' into oblivion, or
b) Invest anyway, making you therefore the stupidest investor in Earth.
