bearish over the short term due to:

~coal stocks usually trade at 8-11 times p/e, current levels r untenable
~demand for clean energy,coal is the dirtiest energy, demand for coal comes only when all other energy sources r maxed out
~bye-bye harsh winter
~china cooling down its economy/raising interest rates
~economy getting ahead of itself
~oil inventories r still high
