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•

In connection with such closing, it changed its name to FutureFuel Corp. The Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, FutureFuel Chemical Company, owns and operates a chemical production facility located on approximately 2,200 acres of land six miles southeast of Batesville in north central Arkansas fronting the White River.

It currently markets its biodiesel products by truck, rail and barge directly to customers in the United States. Its chemical products are used in a variety of markets and end uses, including detergent, agrochemical, automotive, oil and gas, coatings, nutrition, and polymer additives.
