Has anyone heard about Alpha buying BMR from Massey? Already? Geez, that is just mind boggling! I seen it on the website TATTOO. It is an investor and coal site. Just wondering if anyone has heard anything? Hope they do not shut down!

No it's not true. Is all the article said was they were considering a buyout from Alpha. The stocks had raised which is good for the company, that may be exactly what they need is a name change since Massey has such a bad one right now. If Alpha does buy it I dont see it as being such a bad thing. I don't see them spending Millions of dollars to idle a company. Honestly I think it will be exactly the same.

NEW YORK -- Shares of coal miner Massey Energy Co. jumped more than 11 percent Friday on rumors of a takeover offer from rival Alpha Natural Resources.
The Wall Street Journal reported that Alpha Natural Resources Inc. was considering a buyout of the Richmond, Va., company. The Journal said Massey hired investment bank Perella Weinberg as an adviser on Alpha's possible bid and will review its options at a board meeting later this month.
Massey shares rose $4.73, or 11.2 percent, to close at $46.94, after trading as high as $48.12 earlier in the session. Alpha shares fell $1.26, or 2.8 percent, to close at $44.45.

I was told they might close it a few weeks in Jan, Rumor is that they might do that to lay off and rehire at lower wages. We will see. Screws Christmas up not knowing for sure though.

I wish Richard Gilliam would just buy it back! He was the best to work for. It's very wrong what they do to these coal miners
I was never one that liled union, but in this day and time they almost need one to keep jobs and benefits, and to know they will be taken care of at retirement! Times are changing, and I guess we also have to change with them!
