I am thoroughly baffled by the Fools in Absentia commenting on ARLP. It's perhaps the best run coal company on the planet, shown in spades (shovels) by today's report. Huge dividend increasing 4X a year and way undervalued since its dive, though not as severe as most of the other coal miners, since the beginning of 2012. The top shelf is ARLP's residence and the company is pushing it higher...Well run, generous to stockholders and consistently profitable. What else matters?Maxwellmo
Not much. That's why I continue to own it.
Agreed. I almost always run in the opposite direction of the crowd. When everyone was running from coal, I swooped in and picked up ARLP under $54 and have laughed all the way to the bank with my rising dividends. From what I can see they are among the finest in a tough business. The fundamentals are strong, and if/when coal comes back (and it will) I believe they will emerge faster and stronger than their peers that survive. My only regret is not buying more after the pullback following the election. If we won't burn our own coal, someone else will, and that is where ARLP will thrive.
