Coal Stocks

Coal stocks and coal investments have always been popular investment choices because of coal’s abundance and excellent thermal properties. However, concerns about global warming and coal’s negative effects on the environment have raised many questions about the long-term potential of investing in coal stocks. Today, coal stocks are in a transitional era: on one hand, energy companies are being pressured to find alternative energy sources to what is labeled a dirty energy source, on the other hand, new technologies and discoveries are proving that burning coal remains one of the most practical ways to fuel our increasing energy demands.

To invest profitably in coal stocks, investors need to be aware of the major trends affecting the coal industry. See our coal stocks archive below where you’ll uncover a host of ideas on the most important trends impacting coal investors and the best strategies for profiting from these trends.
