    You are the real funny man on this board. If you
    are trying to be a smartass let me tell you, the
    question may have sounded stupid, but you never talk about
    anything important, honestly you sound to be a very dim
    light bulb. I just wanted to find who knew what and
    what they knew if anything, UNDERSTOOD.I have made
    alot of money in this market, and I do not need you to
    try to be the funny man. You can take your shares of
    ADM (probably don't even own any) and figure the rest
    out, Because this baby is going down further. We will
    see who is laughing come the first of this year, you
    the little investor. Not me, a little advice for you,
    do your research. I have been following ADM closely
    about 6 years now, I did 3 research papers on
    this company,2 while getting my bachelors degree and
    one doing my masters. So can't I have a little fun
    with the less intelligent. The jokes on you, because
    you will never know what I know about this company.
    Oh and by the way I have invested in this company
    over the years and will more when she goes under 10.
    Bite your tongue VILLAN!

    • Laurie and Steve,

      I live in Paraguay where
      Stevia originated. In fact my house is about 25
      kilometers from the house of Bertoni, who deveolped this
      product. His house is now a musuem that sits along the
      Parana river in Paraguay. We can buy it cheap here.
      There is a lot of information on the Internet about
      this product. One of our sons did a research project
      for home school on this product and I was amazed of
      all the information that he found on Stevia.

      Looking on a map of South America, we (family) live where
      Paraguay, Brazil, and Argentina come together. I would be
      interested importing this to the States since it can be
      purchased cheap here and I think that is a growing market
      in the States. I will be researching more into this
      in the future.

      You can reach me by e-mail at
      <>. Hope to be hearing from you. Thanks


    • i have some, it is healthy. i need some recipes. can anyone send some recipes?

    • instead of All State

    • Very interesting message. If ADM still ownes
      those 12,951,400 shares it gives them a 14% ownership
      of a company with much the same operating
      philosophy. IBP sells for $23-23, earned $3.46 per share
      (P/E=6.92), pays only 10 cents annual dividend. And what are
      they doing with all those earnings? You guessed
      it---they are buying up small and near bankrupt producers
      (the book value per share is $16.50). Do they really
      need all this excess production capacity or is this
      another ego trip?

    • Oxydiesel is a patented blend utilizing ethanol
      not soy. It is competitive and can appeal to a mass
      market. It favors the farmer and ADM. Think of it as
      reformulated diesel that solves regulatory emission mandates
      for fleets. Hey, ADM has burned the fuel for 1 year.

    • NewsTraders) -- IBP Inc. (IBP) 10% owner
      Archer-Daniels-Midland (ADM) purchased 250,000 shares of common stock
      between September 1 and September 4 at a range of $16.63
      to $17.06 per share, according to a Form 4 released
      today by the SEC.
      It owned 12,951,400 shares after
      the transaction

      This info is for 1998.

    • you would know that they hold a ton of IBP
      shares. We discussed at length what exactly the fit would
      be with ADM and, as I recall, we couldn't come down
      with a clear cut answer as to how IBP fit in with
      ADM's current companies.
      To my knowledge, IBP is
      not fully vertically integrated. Smithfield is
      probably the leader now that they have acquired Carrol
      foods and are going for Tyson's pork operations. But
      Smithfield is concentrating in pork. Cargil's integration is
      in the pork industry but I don't think they

      Koch industries had big ideas of vertical integration
      of beef but backed off of that recently when they
      lost their butts. I don't have time right now to dig
      out the "FACTS". If you know for sure, clue me in.
      Anybody care to wade through a couple of 10k's today?

    • Meant to say that "CPC" was a major wet corn
      miller and had enjoyed at least two quarters of very
      large profits. CARGILL is either number one or number
      two in wet corn milling along with their other

    • is most likely the employees, ex-employees and retirees. They may be as big as All-State and the mutual funds combined. This is because of the ESOP. That is probably why No.3 got such a big vote.

    • is more than a "wet corn miller" vertically
      integrated livestock producer, check IBP, similar to excel,
      record profits for the last year. this is one segment
      adm lacks that some of it's competitors are reaping
      huge benefits from IMO.
