    So much for free markets- Wall street crooks always win and can move the price of the stock any way they chose...SEC sits on their #$%$ day after day as retailer investors get robbed.

    Plummets tomorrow...all misses in tech in todays earnings...big AAPL will be the next to miss as well...cell phones and tablet market is saturated with choices and AAPL has zero new products coming to market anytime soon....I will buy AAPL again at 450 within the next month or two.

    On the positive, management has seen the demand for core railroad products increase over the past few weeks due to depleted supplies. The most common items where demand has increased is in the coal and grain shipments.

    Previously, Natural Gas has superseded coal in demand due to its low prices, but with Natural Gas storage levels becoming lower, and the subsequent price increase of Natural Gas, the demand for coal has increased. CSX estimates that if Natural Gas stays above $3.50 per gallon, about 50% of CSX’s domestic coal business will remain profitable. And as Natural Gas prices increase, CSX’s domestic coal business becomes more profitable.

    Looking forward, CSX expects modest full-year earnings growth for 2014 on the strength of broad-based merchandise and intermodal gains and an improving domestic coal environment. In addition, the company remains confident in its ability to sustain double-digit earnings growth and margin expansion for its shareholders in 2015 and beyond. The company expects to sustain a mid-60s operating ratio longer-term.

    Market already knows aapl will miss and stock goes lower after timber cook announces pretty good numbers but bores the hell out of analysts with his line "we are excited about the new product pipeline" than stock sells off because we all know there is no new products coming anytime soon that will bring in new revenue. Cook is terrible for shareholders

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Queensland Rail says it is likely the train line between Rockhampton, in the state's central region, and Cairns, in the far north, will be closed for another couple of days.

    North Queensland network manager Shane Hinchcliff says repair crews are assessing unconfirmed reports of damage between Proserpine and Bowen after Tropical Cyclone Ita.

    "It's unlikely to be buckling but we may have lost some ballast out of the track structure ... we've got guys on the track at the moment," he said.

    "So we'll probably get our guys across that ... to make a full assessment."

    Mr Hinchcliff says parts of the line may be open sooner than others.

    "We'll open up sections as it is safe to do so," he said.

    "It's likely that Rocky to Mackay will be the first section open.

    "Then after that it'll be a case of as we get the recovery work complete we'll open up those corridors."

    NMDC in talks with US’ Alpha Natural for coal mine buy
    NEW DELHI : State-owned NMDC Ltd is in talks with Alpha Natural Resources of the US to acquire majority stake in a coking coal mine in that country, two senior company officials told Cogencis.

    The Hyderabad-based miner has signed a confidentiality agreement with Alpha Natural Resources and is undertaking the due diligence process for the mine. A delegation from the company may soon visit the US to assess the mine, the officials confirmed.

    NMDC is still in the process of assessing the quantum of the investment required to buy the US coking coal asset. -Cogencis

    The reality for coal stock appreciation.

    So I think you should check the Australian weather forecast...Looks like a cat 5 cyclone should be flooding Australia any minute now....I am pretty sure a storm with 190 mph winds and huge amount of precipitation will stop production of most coal mines in Australia over the next several weeks.

  • ny_nyyankee ny_nyyankee Apr 10, 2014 10:47 PM Flag

    And yet the criminal banks will continue to short the coal sector until all coal workers are unemployed....Wall Street has ruined many hard working citizens livelihoods over the many years...I will never do business with any of the big banks....All criminals if you ask me. Coal stocks will report better than expected numbers for the considerable future.

  • ny_nyyankee ny_nyyankee Apr 10, 2014 4:53 PM Flag

    Add in mine flooding and now we have several coal mines off line for a considerable amount of time. Inventories are already low without the storm as many coal miners are scaling back production.

    According to Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology, it’s only the second time since 1918 a storm of this magnitude has struck Queensland. The other time was three years ago, when Tropical Cyclone Yasi struck just south of Ita’s anticipated landfall. Yasi was Australia’s costliest tropical cyclone in its history, causing an estimated $3.6 billion in damage.

    Ita is now stronger than Yasi was at its peak.

    Coal prices will now spike depending on destruction and mime and port closures

    Amazing that the same management team are still collecting a paycheck at this company as shareholders lose everything. What a shame....public relations is awful as well as they say very little over the last several years.

    Downgrades only occur when coal rallies....The criminals of Wall Street. Lets see how the storm in Australia affects coal pricing over the next few weeks....could get a nice spike if mining companies cannot operate.

    We will have to wait and see how severe the damage is because mass flooding is expected..could be good for coal prices as ports and mining are already closed due to the storm and much damage is too be expected...Peabody has several coal mines in Australia in different locations so will not know until over the weekend BTU is effected by storm.

    Will be making landfall in queensland australia sometime today...Cyclone Ita: Queensland braces for category five storm...look it up...last time a storm of this nature hit the coal mines of Australia coal prices sky rocketed

    I will sell my shares at 40 pps....it will take some time but it will eventually happen...coal will be utilized worldwide for decades to come and Wall Street gave investors the opportunity to buy at all time lows in coal sector. Many ups and downs to come but BTU is in a great position to capitalize when coal is back in favor...or when funds start buying in to fuel the rally. Only a matter of time.
