Recommended Links Another giant U.S. company is going broke. Arch Coal (ACI), the second-largest U.S. coal producer, filed for bankruptcy yesterday. Coal prices have dropped 98% since 2008, causing a major crisis for the coal industry. Arch Coal’s quarterly sales has fallen in 13 of the last 14 quarters. It missed a $90 million loan payment last month, and has $4.5 billion in debt it can’t afford to pay. Arch Coal’s stock has plunged 99% in the past two years. Its stock fell 31% yesterday, as you can see in this chart: Regards, Justin Spittler Delray Beach, Florida January 12, 2016 We want to hear from you. If you have a question or comment, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We read every email that comes in, and we’ll publish comments, questions, and answers that we think other readers will find useful. Arch is the fourth major coal miner to declare bankruptcy since the beginning of 2015. The others are Patriot Coal, Walter Energy, and Alpha Natural Resources. Yesterday, Reuters reported that companies responsible for 25% of U.S. coal production are currently in bankruptcy. The news of Arch Coal’s bankruptcy slammed coal stocks yesterday. Peabody Energy Corporation (BTU), the largest U.S. coal company, fell 20%. Cloud Peak Energy (CLD), another large coal company, fell 11%. • Cheap natural gas is a big problem for coal… Natural gas prices have dropped 40% since early 2014, to a 14-year low. When gas is cheap, some power plants choose to burn natural gas instead of coal. Plus, burning natural gas is better for the environment than burning coal. Yesterday, The Wall Street Journal reported: Coal burned by power plants faces competition from cheap and relatively clean natural gas. Also, a slowdown in demand from China has pressured the prices of coal used in steelmaking. Major U.S. producers are scaling back, trying to shed mines, and laying off employees. And new, strict regulations have cost coal companies billions of dollars. Bloomberg Business reports: Arch said in the filing that environmental regulations have made it more expensive for companies to use coal. It blamed Environmental Protection Agency rules for causing more than 400 coal-fired generators to close. Overall, 23 percent of the generating units are expected to retire or convert by 2025, Arch said. • Longtime readers know why we’re interested in coal… Doug Casey often says any asset down more than 90% deserves a look. The price of coal is down 98% in the past eight years. At Casey Research, our top goal is to help subscribers build lasting wealth. A key strategy we use is to buy valuable natural resource companies when they’re cheap. We want to buy great assets at attractive prices. Natural resources, like coal, are “cyclical.” This means they go through huge booms and busts. By buying resources after a bust, when no one else wants them, we can get a dollar’s worth of assets for a dime or less. Today, we have that opportunity in coal. Although politicians like to bash coal for being dirty, it still generates 40% of the world’s electricity. Even the Energy Information Administration, an arm of the U.S. government, admits that coal will generate 34% of U.S. energy in 2040. The world needs coal to keep the lights on. Like all cyclical stocks, coal stocks will eventually bottom out and start rising again. 7,000 reasons to avoid Amazon.com this holiday season Wall Street Journal bestselling author James Altucher just announced 7,000 reasons to avoid Amazon.com this holiday season. Anyway, he just released an announcement that shows you how to leverage his best ideas to improve your life and your pocketbook. If used properly, I can confidently say it could turn out to be your best “investment” this year…by a long shot. Click here to see James’ announcement… – — • E.B. Tucker, editor of The Casey Report, likes coal… Here’s E.B.: It’s highly unlikely the world stops using coal. For one, it’s too cheap not to use. At roughly $30 a ton, thermal coal is cheaper than driveway gravel. That’s mind-blowing, given that coal is the most energy-dense fossil fuel on Earth. But he isn’t buying coal stocks yet… The decision by Arch Coal to file bankruptcy means we’re one step closer to the end of the bloodbath in the coal industry. But I’m still not personally invested in coal stocks. Many of these companies can’t cover their expenses with thermal coal trading at $30 to $35 a ton. They have to pay pensions, employee health care plans, and other long-term obligations. Shareholders are at the lowest rung on the corporate totem pole. It’s not where you want to be when an industry is in crisis. E.B. says coal bonds are more attractive right now. I personally own bonds of a coal royalty company. This company leases mining rights. It takes a cut on each ton of coal that leaves the mine. I’m confident the company will survive, so I’m buying its bonds for $0.60 on the dollar. I’m collecting 30% interest while the market turns around… I think we will see a few more bankruptcies before the coal crisis is over. The industry will consolidate and the “survivors” should turn out to be great investments. That’s when I’ll start buying coal stocks again. • Nick Giambruno, editor of Crisis Investing, has a different take… As Crisis Investing subscribers know, Nick specializes in crisis markets. By buying in crisis markets, Nick’s subscribers often buy world-class assets at dirt-cheap prices. For example, you may recall that Cyprus had a major banking crisis in 2013. During the crisis, Nick recommended buying shares in stable, profitable Cypriot businesses. The crisis had crushed Cyprus’ stock prices. Many stocks were down 99%. But Nick’s analysis showed that some companies were still making good money. Investors had panicked and sold the great companies in Cyprus along with the shaky ones. Less than two years later, Nick’s subscribers cashed in a 97% gain on a lighting-fixture company, and a 214% gain on a company that operates beachfront properties. Like E.B., Nick sees big opportunity in coal today. But unlike E.B., Nick likes one coal stock at today’s prices… • Nick’s favorite coal stock is Alliance Resource Partners (ARLP)… Here’s Nick: Debt has turned out to be lethal for many coal companies. It’s one of the main reasons so many have gone bankrupt. ARLP is an industry exception. Its balance sheet is a source of strength. With high liquidity and low debt, it’s financially far stronger than any other U.S. coal miner… By retiring $205 million of long-term debt this year, ARLP reduced its debt-to-equity ratio to 84%, well below the industry average of 113%. Interest coverage (operating income/interest expense) is a robust 15. That means ARLP is generating enough earnings to cover its interest cost 15 times over. In other words, debt is not a problem. Alliance is an impressive dividend payer. The company has raised or maintained its dividend for 65 straight quarters. Today, it’s paying an incredible 20% dividend.

Today’s chart shows the price of copper over the past seven years. On Monday, it fell 2.1% to its lowest level since April 2009. Copper has fallen 29% over the past year. Copper is a key industrial metal. It goes in everything from electrical wiring to batteries to plumbing parts. The modern economy can’t function without copper. Like coal, the price of copper is cyclical. It goes through big booms and busts. Eventually, we’ll get a great opportunity to buy beaten-down copper stocks at bargain prices. But for now, we recommend staying away. As you can see from the chart, copper is still in a freefall. Before buying copper companies, we want to see copper begin to carve out a bottom.

The Milwaukee offices of Associated Banc-Corp.Green Bay-based Associated Banc-Corp has agreed to acquire the Wisconsin branch banking operations of Columbus, Ohio-based Huntington Bancshares Inc. The cash transaction, which has a net premium of about $34 million, is expected to close in the first half of 2019. The transaction price was not disclosed.The Milwaukee offices of Associated Banc-Corp.Associated Bank N.A. would take on about $850 million in deposits, $134 million in loans and 32 Huntington National Bank branches.The FDIC lists 35 Huntington branches in Wisconsin: three in Green Bay, two in Milwaukee, two in Antigo, and one each in Pulaski, Suamico, Appleton, Madison, Superior, Brodhead, Jefferson, Algoma, Darlington, Tomahawk, Kiel, Marinette, Lena, Oconto, Suring, Townsend, Minocqua, Kaukauna, Clear Lake, Stevens Point, Janesville, Boulder Junction, Manitowish Waters, Elkhorn, Menomonee Falls, Wautoma, Oshkosh and Winneconne.An Associated Bank spokeswoman said no decision has been made yet on potential branch closures, and Associated is expected to finalize those plans in its Office of the Comptroller of the Currency filing in the first quarter of 2019. In a map of existing and acquired branches presented by Associated Bank in a slide deck about the transaction, several branches overlap others geographically. The acquisition would expand Associated Bank’s reach to an additional 13 Wisconsin cities, adding 60,000 deposit accounts and 33,000 households.According to its most recent call report submitted to the FDIC, Huntington had $1.2 billion in net income for 2018 as of the end of the third quarter. It has $105.8 billion in total assets and 14,949 employees.Associated Banc-Corp has about $33 billion in assets and more than 230 branches in Wisconsin, Illinois and Minnesota. It also has commercial offerings in Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio and Texas. As of the end of the third quarter, Associated had 4,676 FTE employees and $260.1 million in net income for 2018.According to Associated, the transaction is a good fit because of the banks’ similar customer, product and revenue mix. At the time of closing, Huntington would also undergo conversion to Associated systems, which is expected to result in about 45 percent cost savings. The acquisition is not expected to have a significant impact on Associated’s earnings next year.“We are excited for the opportunity to welcome Huntington’s Wisconsin customers to Associated Bank as we strengthen our franchise and expand services into 13 additional communities,” said Philip Flynn, president and chief executive officer of Associated. “Ultimately, the scale and efficiencies we gain will position us to make investments to further enhance the customer experience and deliver increased value to our customers, colleagues, communities and shareholders.” Get our email updatesBizTimes DailyManufacturing WeeklyNonprofit WeeklyReal Estate WeeklySaturday Top 10Wisconsin Morning Headlines Subscribe

The Blessing of the Animals service commemorates the life of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. St. Francis of Assisi was said to be able to communicate with animals. There are legends of Francis preaching to doves and crows. One story recounts his rescuing a wild rabbit caught in a trap, ending with the rabbit following him for days and constantly hopping on his lap in appreciation. Perhaps the most famous story speaks of Francis taming a wolf that terrorized a village in Italy.*Advertisement* The annual Blessing of the Animals was recently held to recognize St. Francis Day, hosted by clergy from Old North Church along with RUFF, the North End dog group.Sunny, autumnal weather brought creatures big and small together for a short liturgy followed by the blessings. This annual event is typically held at the Prado, but was relocated this year to the North End Dog Park on Prince & Snow Hill Streets due to the Prado restoration. Old North’s Rev. Ellie Terry leads a blessing.

Print 5/14/2019, 1:52 p.m. 000 July 6, 2018 Chequessett Yacht & Country Club Wellfleet, MassachusettsPhoto by Ashley Tilton PhotographyTHE STORYWhen Molly Rossiter and Hayden Callahan first started dating in the fall of 2014, the then-University of Wisconsin students weren’t quite sure where their relationship was headed. They had mutual friends and went on study dates and to concerts, but Molly was just starting her senior year; Hayden, on the other hand, was about to graduate in December and move to Boston for an engineering job. That uncertainty disappeared, however, when the couple took a weeks-long road trip just two months into their courtship. “I think we kind of fell in love then and it solidified our relationship,” Molly says. They dated long distance for about a year while Molly finished up school and, eventually, joined Hayden in Boston.After living in the same city for several months, Molly says they knew they were “heading towards marriage.” In December 2016, the couple started looking at engagement rings. “The first time we went in [to Barmakian Jewelers] we were just looking to see what size I was, and we actually ended up buying the ring together,” Molly says. “We had no idea that was going to happen.” Even though Molly knew what the ring looked like, she still didn’t know when Hayden would actually pop the question. She’d planned a surprise getaway to the Adirondack Mountains in February 2017, and had an inkling that Hayden might propose then. On the drive up, “He was acting so calm and collected,” she recalls. “I remember thinking there’s no way he’s going to do it.” When they got to their Airbnb, though, Molly had just started putting away groceries when she turned around to see that Hayden was down on one knee. “I was like, ‘Oh my gosh! It was a surprise to me even though I knew about the ring and everything,’” Molly says.The pair spent the rest of the weekend quietly soaking up their engagement—and then the planning began. Molly and Hayden visited a few venues on Cape Cod, but weren’t sold on any of them. On Fourth of July weekend, they visited Chequessett Yacht & Country Club in Wellfleet. “It was the last one we were going to and at that point I was like ‘I don’t know if we should even go all the way to look at it,’ but we did, and we fell in love right away,” Molly says. They signed the contract on the spot. Then, on their wedding day, came every bride’s worst nightmare: rain. At the last minute, the couple decided to swap their planned beach ceremony for one in the yacht club’s boathouse instead. But yet, “I’m so glad [it rained],” the bride says. “The pictures came out so well and it turned into this beautiful night with the sunset, so it was actually perfect.”THE DETAILSPhoto by Ashley Tilton PhotographyWhile searching for hair inspiration on Instagram and Pinterest, Molly fell in love with the look of flower-adorned tresses. “Stacy [Kuehn] and I had a great consultation where she tried a bunch of different styles and we settled on a loose wave,” Molly says, “It held pretty well, which was surprising, and the flowers were still in my hair. Hayden pulled out about 40 bobby pins at the end of the night.” Photo by Ashley Tilton PhotographyOutside of their ceremony, Molly and Hayden greeted guests with a custom wood sign from Etsy vendor Oaky Designs.Photo by Ashley Tilton PhotographyThe yacht club’s boathouse provided an intimate, rustic-chic setting for Molly and Hayden’s ceremony. “Everyone was there watching us,” Molly says. “It felt very ‘together’ and cozy.”Photo by Ashley Tilton PhotographyPinned to a chicken wire memo board, the couple’s DIY escort cards stemmed from a template created by Etsy shop Minty Paperie.Photo by Ashley Tilton Photography“I’m not really one for color, so I knew I wanted mostly greenery,” Molly says of the reception decor.

Photo by Ashley Tilton PhotographyMolly and Hayden called on a few of their friends to submit songs that they wanted to hear at the couple’s wedding. For their first dance, though, the DJ played “Come Away With Me” by Norah Jones. “My mom loves her and I kind of grew up listening to her,” Molly says.THE FILEBride’s Gown BHLDNBride’s Jewelry Barmakian JewelersCake Cottage Street BakeryCatering Mac’s SeafoodCeremony Music SpeechLess StringsDJ Fine Tune EntertainmentFlowers MKM DesignHair Stacey Kuehn HairMakeup Eden Skincare & MakeupPhotographer Ashley Tilton PhotographyPlanner Cape Cod CelebrationsRentals PEAK Event ServicesSignage EtsyGetting married?
