"We rate GEVO INC (GEVO) a SELL. This is driven by some concerns, which we believe should have a greater impact than any strengths, and could make it more difficult for investors to achieve positive results compared to most of the stocks we cover. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its disappointing return on equity, deteriorating net income, generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself and feeble growth in its earnings per share."
