Don’t invest in Trump’s plan to save coal country

The president-elect has a penchant for meddling in segments of the U.S. economy, but that doesn’t mean he will always get his way


Donald Trump moves markets with a single tweet, but investors shouldn’t bet on his plan to revive coal country. Coal is quickly falling out of favour as an energy source in the U.S. and China. It remains to be seen if emerging economies push demand for coal, but don’t count on Trump to stoke the fire under the commodity.
