More convinced than ever that 2009 was a good year to buy adm. I do think 2009 was an odd year for adm and the market and actually a rare time to buy adm at bargain price. From time to time there might be good buy opportunities for adm but still rare. looking forward to 2010 and well beyond. I take the acquistions adm was able to do during 2009 as a sign of strength and increased earnings potential for the future.
