The Bedford Report Provides Equity Research on Pacific Ethanol & BioFuel Energy Corporation

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 16, 2011) - Ethanol stocks have been on fire this month as global demand for corn-based biofuel sends exports to all-time highs. Ethanol prices have increased 20 percent the past year as the appetite for biofuels grows and an expiring tax credit has boosted domestic demand. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the Ethanol Industry and provides investment research on Pacific Ethanol Corporation (NASDAQ: PEIX) & BioFuel Energy Corporation (NASDAQ: BIOF).

The United States is dominating the ethanol race. Bob Dinneen, president of the Renewable Fuels Association argues that "the world is looking for ethanol and right now the US is going to be the first spot because we have product and it's lower cost than anybody else." Oil giant Canada has imported the most U.S. ethanol this year, about 18,000 barrels a day, followed by Brazil, with 15,000, according to the Energy Department.

Support for ethanol continues to grow as US citizens begin to appreciate the benefits of a strong ethanol sector. Matt Hartwig, chief of staff and communications director for Renewable Fuels Association explains that ethanol "makes gasoline cheaper, air cleaner, there's more money to go around the community and it's good for the economy. We can also back off our dependence on foreign oil, and that will keep our sons and daughters out of harm's way."
