GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Business Description

Industry: Chemicals » Specialty Chemicals
Compare:NEU, SCL, VAL, POL, CYT » details
Traded in other countries:B2LN.Germany
BioFuel Energy Corporation was incorporated as a Delaware corporation in April 2006. It produces and sells ethanol and its co-products (primarily distillers grain), through its two ethanol production facilities located in Wood River, Nebraska and Fairmont, Minnesota. Its strategy is focused on optimizing production and streamlining operations with the goal of producing at or above nameplate capacity at the lowest cost per gallon. The Company is currently seeking to upgrade or replace certain systems at its facilities that it expect would enable it to operate at full capacity on a more reliable basis. The markets where its ethanol is sold are highly competitive.
