With Dick’s Sporting Good Park located in Broomfield, fans in Denver often opt to take party buses to the show. One fan-favorite bus service is J2G Live, which offers prompt buses to and from the Phish shows (tickets available here) in addition to a number of special benefits for riders.J2G Live will run their Destination Dick’s Phish party buses for the seventh year in a row, treating fans to an all-inclusive experience. Particularly great for out-of-towners, J2G Live’s round-trip coach buses pick up and drop off at the beloved venue, Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom, a staple of the Denver music scene that regularly hosts Red Rocks and Phish Dick’s afterparties. Music fans can head over to Cervantes’ at 3 p.m., where they’ll enjoy free food before the ride. Each ticket also includes special discounts for bus riders at the nearby dispensary, Denver Kush Club, such as buy-one-get-one deals, penny joints with purchase, and more.J2G Live’s buses leave exactly at 5 pm, giving fans plenty of time on the lot before the show to enjoy free beer and water from Boulder Beer Company. Beer and water will also be available for riders following Phish’s performance until 30 minutes after the show is over when the buses return to Cervantes. In addition, if Cervantes’ is hosting any late-night shows, riders receive discounted or even free entry to the late-night party, depending on the show. One confirmed show that riders will have discounted access to is Cycles, an up-and-coming jam band out Colorado who will perform an after-show on Friday, August 31st. J2G Live also offers a VIP package for riders, which includes an upgraded ride on a limo bus with an open bar.As J2G Live co-founder, Gary Mellini, shared about the upcoming Phish Dick’s run,Dick’s is the best weekend of the year.  I’ve been a Phish fan for over 20 years now, and I know how big a pain it can be getting to and from the shows, especially if you are traveling out of town or have a big crew of people. Our philosophy has always been to offer the kind of service we’d expect if we were going to a show, so we make it as easy as possible for our riders. Basically, buy your ticket, show up on time, and we will handle the rest. To be able to help make so many fans’ experiences a little easier means a lot and to do it while seeing our favorite band together always makes for an amazing weekend. We are lucky we get to do it in our backyard every year.This year, J2G Live is also offering fans a chance to win a three-day pass to Phish’s Dick’s run.

U.S. coal companies, analysts expect strong financial headwinds to continue through 2020

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):“Flat is the new up,” one analyst said as coal companies reported another brutal quarter for investors in the space while domestic markets continued on a path of secular decline and export markets took a turn for the worse.For the last five years, the S&P 500 has consistently outperformed the SNL Coal Index, and the gap continues to widen through 2019. While coal equities struggled to win the favor of investors even when robust export markets offered coal companies an outlet to sell their fuel, share prices are plummeting as those opportunities diminish.“Export markets are challenging right now, and there is a widespread fear amongst investors that all U.S. coal producers will have to retreat significantly from the export markets, resulting in significant EBITDA declines,” Consol Energy Inc. President and CEO Jimmy Brock said on a Nov. 5 earnings call. Brock added that Consol was bracing for continued weak pricing through 2020, but remained optimistic about a potential recovery.Mark Levin, an analyst with Seaport Global Securities LLC, praised Consol’s assets and the product it sells in a Nov. 5 note. Levin said that, unlike many of its peers, the company managed to avoid revising its guidance. Since “flat is the new up,” Levin chalked up the company’s performance, in line with expectations, to the “victory column.”Share prices declined at major U.S. coal companies despite aggressive share buyback programs rolled out by most major U.S. coal producers in recent years. Staring down a diminishing domestic market, weaker export markets and the political uncertainty of a 2020 election, Levin recently encouraged the coal industry to “hoard cash.”Levin said management teams talking on third-quarter earnings calls sound like they are bracing for recent trends — near-record-low domestic consumption, met coal prices flirting with three-year lows, and overall weak coal export volumes — to continue into 2020. If a company has an unsustainable quarterly distribution or a non-essential project, it is time to cut it, he added.More ($): Already flailing through 2019, coal equities dove even lower in third quarter U.S. coal companies, analysts expect strong financial headwinds to continue through 2020last_img read more
