Alpha Natural Resources (ANR) adds 13 cents to $16.32 and a Sep 19 – 24 (1X2) call ratio spread is bought on the stock for 38 cents, 3750X, to open. Looks like a bullish play targeting an agressive move higher in ANR through mid-Sep (see 3/5 and 3/6 color on ANR for additional commentary on the recent action in the options and shares of the coal producer.)
