Is Coal a Stranded Asset?

It's a rough time to be in the coal business these days. One company just gave up on trying to sell some of its coal holdings after it failed to find a buyer. This doesn't bode well for others in that space.

The same forces that have dragged coal through the mud have lifted another fuel source up high. Forward-thinking energy players like GE and Ford have already plowed sizable amounts of research capital into this little-known stock... because they know it holds the key to the explosive profit power of the coming "no choice fuel revolution". Luckily, there's still time for you to get on board if you act quickly. All the details are inside an exclusive report from The Motley Fool. Click here for the full story!
