Just one more bearish ethanol play.

I've done quite well to date by shorting ethanol companies... ethanol is too expensive to produce, has no real barriers to entry, actually *increases* our overall energy needs vs. gasoline, and is the more expensive alternative when it comes to fueling automobiles due to reduced MPG.

Not one of your better calls. You need to do more homework on the The Andersons.
