Currently there are five analysts that rate Alliance Resource Partners a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and four rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Alliance Resource Partners as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, attractive valuation levels and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, Patriot Coal Corporation ( PCX), down 18.4%, Golden Minerals ( AUMN), down 17.4%, International Tower Hill Mines ( THM), down 16.5%, and Kimber Resources ( KBX), down 16%, were all losers within the metals & mining industry with Vale ( VALE) being today's metals & mining industry loser.
