Do you know that feeling in your stomach when you go over that first drop on a roller coaster? Well that's exactly the same feeling most investors in coal companies had in 2012 and early 2013 due to the prices of natural gas falling off of a cliff. Now the price has begun to rebound, which coal companies might finally complete the turbulent ride?

In the following video, analyst Taylor Muckerman discusses why plans at companies like Southern Company (NYSE: SO  ) might help companies such as Peabody Energy (NASDAQOTH: BTUUQ  ) , Cloud Peak Energy (NYSE: CLD  ) and Alliance Resource Partners (NASDAQ: ARLP  ) . To back up these findings, he mentions the recent success CSX Corporation (NASDAQ: CSX  ) has enjoyed in the Illinois River Basin recently -- where its business has doubled since 2010.
