Basse said demand for corn ethanol in the U.S. will almost triple by 2012, while corn stocks globally are at their lowest levels since 1984.
Demand for bio-fuels is rising not only in the U.S. but also globally, particularly in China, Canada, the European Union, Brazil, and Indonesia, Basse said.
"This is going to have a tremendous dislocation on grain demand," Basse said. The world will need "record large global corn crops if we're going to keep up with the demand," while global wheat stocks will continue to decline, Basse said.
Ethanol, an alcohol-based alternative fuel produced from starch or sugar-based feedstocks, has been particularly hot this year as oil prices have skyrocketed, heightening concerns that the U.S. depends too much on imported oil. Ethanol is blended with gasoline to improve its emissions quality.
In 2005, 95 ethanol refineries in 19 states produced 4 billion gallons of ethanol, an increase of 17% from 2004 and 126% since 2001, according to the Renewable Fuels Association, the national trade association for the American ethanol industry. See archived story on ethanol.

While I agree that the dilution could be a good thing in the long run for the company, I didn't understand how the addition of 2.28 million shares could make this stock less attractive to shorts. Could you help me out there Teefrtwo?
Vancouver and Apenn, being the major shorts on this board, whould the stock be a less attractive short after the dilution and if so why?
Numthia: It looks to me that that's just what they're doing: raising money to increase their ability to make more money. They're not just getting free money to go to the fair with.
Keep the faith.
What do I have to lie about? I have paid off my home with the money I made in SEPR.
Unforturately I fell asleep and missed the down opening which moved 5 pts today. Maybe it's you that should invest in mutual funds.
i was talking to the other person.. our conversation is over.. in my eyes you have already discredited yourself.. when you start a conversation with someone by lying.. that person cannot trust anything that you say afterwards.. as is the case with me.. so please.. we dont need to speak anymore.. i simply do not believe anything that you say.. sorry
hey.. if that is what you believe.. by all means.. the market is open.. buy away.. and i will take the other trade.. that's what makes a market.. not that i dont think it cant go up.. come on.. i will just be shorting more if it does.. and each little leg down.. i cover a portion of my position.. just for those days when it does happen to pop up
Ya ya ya my A@$.
