Will probably do fairly well over the long term. Well exposed to power, coal, nickel and a number of joint ventures. Very smart management.

Launching a suit against hedge funds that are shorting the stock and driving the price down as well as putting out a lot of negative news. A well-run company with honest management. Could buy with a long-term view.
