Peabody Goes South Like Sherman

Jack Kemp

Well an unproducive stock and company are called a dog on Wall St. So the coal giant joins its namesake - and wishes it, too, had a Wayback Machine.

Peabody Energy has voluntarily filed for Chapter 11.

The Company has left the Australian operations out of the filings.

Will more bankruptcies follow? They sure can.
