The Best Stock to Own in the Coal Industry

In the following video, Fool contributor Matt Thalman discusses which stock he likes moving forward in the coal industry.

Matt discusses Peabody (NYSE: BTU  ) , CONSOL Energy (NYSE: CNX  ) , Arch Coal (NYSE: ACI  ) , and Alpha Natural Resources (NYSE: ANR  ) , which one he likes best, and why he would stay away from the other three.

But while the whole industry is facing some serious problems moving forward, the stock Matt picks will be the one he says is best suited to deal with the industry's issues and has put itself in a position that one could almost guarantee it doesn't fail, no matter how bad things get for coal companies.
