StockCall Pre-Market Review on VALE, ANR, ACI, and MCP

StockCall.com Provides Stock Research on Vale S.A., Alpha Natural Resources Inc., Arch Coal Inc., and Molycorp Inc.

New York City, New York -- (May 17, 2013)

The slowdown in the Chinese economy last year had a significant impact on the mining industry. Over the past 15 years, China has been the biggest consumer of raw materials. In fact, the country’s huge appetite for raw materials was the biggest reason for the decade-long bull’s run in commodities. However, the Chinese economy is not expected to grow at the same pace it did in the past decade as evidenced by recent economic data. This has forced several mining companies to rethink their strategy. Global mining companies have been looking to bring down costs and close unsustainable mines in order to adapt to the changing market dynamics. Despite these efforts, the outlook for mining companies remains gloomy. On Thursday, shares of metal and mining companies ended mostly lower as the broad market struggled. Among the major movers were Vale SA (NYSE: VALE), Alpha Natural Resources Inc. (NYSE: ANR), Arch Coal Inc. (NYSE: ACI), and Molycorp Inc. (NYSE: MCP).
