Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. (ARLP)

Yes, the Democrats will be bad for the coal business, the economy has been weak, and coal prices have been declining. But ARLP owns 549 million tons of coal reserves. Like it or not, this is an energy source that the United States will have to rely on in the future.

ARLP, formerly known as Mapco Coal, produces and sells coal to utilities and industrial users in the U.S. ARLP performed fantastically well relative to the S&P 500 until it peaked at 45.58 in August 2005. Since then the price has declined close to 25%, but recently ARLP has been bid back up every time it has dipped below 34, forming a large descending triangle with bullish implications. ARLP stock also looks cheap according to conventional valuation measures and the dividend yield is 5.78%. There is a good dividend history too. I think the risk-reward ratio is starting to look attractive.

    […] I bought ARLP yesterday afternoon at what I hope will turn out to be a good entry point. This stock was first discussed in the blog on November 24.

After running a screen to find stocks with a PEG ratio below 1, a dividend yield above 2.6%, and return on equity exceeding 25%, Kaye came up with ARLP and four other energy stocks: BP PLC (BP), Global Partners (GLP), Precision Drilling (PDS), and Suburban Propane (SPH).
