trailing off after each leg down. The stock now appears
Based in Missouri, FutureFuel produces biodiesel and biobased
speciality chemical products. In the twelve months ending June
2014, the company reported $396.9 million in sales, providing $53.5
million in net income or $1.52 per share. The company
converted 9% of sales to operating cash. That might seem

multiple suggests. A review of recent trading patterns
suggests the stock has so much negative sentiment that it could
