We expect a rebound in met prices will drive improved investor sentiment towards CNX. This should propel its multiple to peak levels as investors anticipate higher met prices driving earnings growth in 2014. Additionally, we expect investors to increasingly focus on the value of company's E&P assets as sentiment towards nat. gas improves."
