Will the Aussie Floods Help these US Coal Companies?

Australia (NYSE:EWA) is flooding, but Noah’s Ark is nowhere to be found at coal mines. So who will satisfy China’s voracious appetite for coal?

While Aussie mining leaders BHP Billiton (NYSE:BHP) and Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO) are taking a hit, these US Coal producers are attracting investors:

Alpha Natural Resources (NYSE:ANR), Massey Energy Company (NYSE:MEE), CONSOL Energy (NYSE:CNX), and Walter Energy (NYSE:WLT).

If you’re looking for ETFs, you may be interested in Market Vectors-Coal ETF (NYSE:KOL) or the lightly traded PowerShares Global Coal Portfolio (NASDAQ:PKOL).
