Hey Paul !

Being a farmer (as you know) and living a scant 150 miles from Decatur, I bought my first couple of hundred shares for $8.88 per share ... Buy when you expect recovery. ... and I haven't recovered yet ! Even though ADM is a cyclical, it has rather stagnated in the $30-40 range where most of my shares are. I shoulda hocked the whole farm at that original price ... but who was to know back then what we know now.

I'm sure not worried about them. Woertz and company know what they are doing. I've not met her yet.
