Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates ANDATEE CHINA MARINE FUEL as a "sell" with a ratings score of D+. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate ANDATEE CHINA MARINE FUEL (AMCF) a SELL. This is driven by multiple weaknesses, 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 feeble growth in its earnings per share, deteriorating net income, generally high debt management risk, disappointing return on equity and poor profit margins."
