Producers of metallurgical coal like Alpha Natural Resources and James River
Coal Co. may have an edge over companies only focused on the energy market.
Natural gas's low prices and lesser environmental impact continue to drive
down the need for coal. The current administration's and Environmental
Protection Agency's strong stance against coal is further compounding demand
issues. However, a rebounding industrial sector and improving international
demand bode well for the metallurgical coal side of the market. Register today

Projected spikes in metallurgical coal demand in China and India will be a
major driver for growth this year. Better demand out of Asia will be
especially important for coal companies like Alpha Natural Resources which saw
almost 50% of its revenues come from outside the U.S. last year. StockCall

Companies like James River Coal that favor thermal over metallurgical coal
will likely face more challenges this year. A decreasing supply glut for
thermal coal could portend better coal prices this year though.
