  • 2 Refiners Not Bothered by the EPA and 1 That Is

    By Robert Zimmerman - April 22, 2013 | Tickers: CLMT, DKL, DK, VLO

    Last month, the EPA released new requirements regarding the sulfur content of gasoline. Predictable peals of protest followed with claims that the new regulations would cost the refinery business upwards of $10 billion. Valero Energy (NYSE: VLO) immediately criticized the move, claiming it would have to spend $300 to $400 million to comply. Maybe that’s why Valero CEO William Klesse sold 50,000 shares in late March.

  • Place These Dividend Champs on Your Watchlist!

    By Jacob Wolinsky - April 3, 2013 | Tickers: CLMT, FGP, NGL

    Oil companies are often characterized by high capital involvement and as such, are not considered great dividend paymasters. While this assessment is largely true, there are some exceptions. Calumet (NASDAQ: CLMT)Ferrellgas  (NYSE: FGP), and NGL Energy (NYSE: NGL) fall in the latter category with dividend yields in excess of 6.5%. However, there is more to these stocks than just great dividends.

There are a few factors that make Venezuela a minor figure in pricing oil. Venezuela’s more »

  • 5 Quality Energy MLP's for 2013 and Beyond

    By Brad Prigmore - March 5, 2013 | Tickers: CLMT, EPD, MMP, MPLX, NTI

    Outlook Remains Positive for 2013

    Energy Master Limited Partnerships started off exceptionally strong in 2013, although the main contributing factor could simply be a resolution to the fiscal cliff impasse and investors’ interpretation that the deal reduces MLP taxation risk. Despite this strong early year showing, I believe MLP's fundamentals remain solid for several factors.

    Master limited partnerships offer investors high yields with potential tax advantages.  Yes, you have to report on your taxes several lines from a K-1 form, but considering MLP distributions may receive more favorable tax treatment than dividends from common stock, it may be worth the hassle.  Below, I’ll review three different MLPs in three different businesses  All pay over 7% in distributions, all have their assets and liabilities.

    In 1923, two German coal researchers figured out how to convert coal into gasoline and other hydrocarbons.  Franz Fischer and Hans Tropsch gasified coal into so called synthesis gas and then converted the constituent carbon monoxide and hydrogen into hydrocarbons.  The original Fischer Tropsch (FT) process for coal required heat (up to 350C) and an iron catalyst.  Turns out, any carbon source can theoretically be used as a feedstock and more »

  • Is Hugo Chavez Getting Nervous?

    By Robert Zimmerman - December 3, 2012 | Tickers: CLMT, XOM, KIOR, SSL

    Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez loves railing against the United States.  Unfortunately, his country exports about 40% of its oil to those imperialist Yankees and owns three refineries in the United States through Citgo.  The Orinoco belt produces most of the country’s oil, a heavy, high sulfur content (“sour”) oil.  Sour oil needs specialized refineries, and these are located primarily in the United States.  Venezuela has expanded its customer base more »
