Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. (ARLP) Description
The Company is a producer and marketer of coal to major United States utilities and industrial users. Website: http://www.arlp.com/
Cloud Peak Energy, Alpha Natural Resources, and Alliance Natural Resources may be saying that a turnaround in coal is coming, but you can't tell by the actions they are taking.
Famous short-seller Jim Chanos has a very negative view of coal stocks, and oil majors including ExxonMobil. Is he right? And, if so, should individual investors follow his short thesis?
With the coal market still trying to work out the issue of slumping demand and increasing pressure from natural gas, some companies are more fit to weather the storm than others.
Speaking to college students, CONSOL Energy's CEO noted that, despite the negative image of coal right now, he believes the industry will be OK over the long term.
