  • Oil and Gas Still Dominate the Energy Sector

    By Phillip Woolgar - August 19, 2013 | Tickers: MUR, SWN, TSO

    If you think that alternative forms of energy will eat away at oil and gas sector profits in the near future, think again. While that would be ideal for society, greener forms of energy are just not ready for widespread use. Here are three of the companies that I think are poised to profit the most from a continued boom in the oil and gas industry.

  • Are You Prepared for a Refinery Turnaround?

    By Piyush Arora - August 7, 2013 | Tickers: PSX, TSO, VLO

    Thanks to the rapid development of pipeline infrastructure, refineries now have better access to West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude-oil feed. This, in turn, has caused a spike in WTI crude demand. The oil is also relatively easier to refine, which altogether has sent prices soaring. Over the last year, WTI spot prices have risen by nearly 16%, while Brent crude prices have remained flat.

    As a result, WTI-Brent spreads have more »

  • This Refiner Seems Cheap, Here's What to Watch For

    By Matthew Frankel - July 31, 2013 | Tickers: XOM, TSO, VLO

    Tesoro (NYSE: TSO) is one of the largest refiners and marketers of petroleum products in the U.S., with about 845,000 barrels per day of refining capacity and more than 2,200 retail branded gas stations. Although the company has done very well over the past several years, shares have been on a slump lately, down more than 15% in just the past few months. With Tesoro set to more »

  • Why This Refiner Is Too Cheap to Ignore

    By Matthew Frankel - July 22, 2013 | Tickers: CST, XOM, TSO, VLO

    At a time when many companies seem to be hitting new highs on a daily basis, there are still some bargains to be found. After soaring for most of 2012 and the early part of this year, Valero (NYSE: VLO) has been on a steady decline since March. Now down more than 30% since that time, I think Valero may be one of the few great bargains left in this more »

  • Billionaire T. Boone Pickens’ High Upside Potential Picks

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - July 2, 2013 | Tickers: APC, MPC, PSX, RAM, TSO

    While the trailing P/E multiple is a useful value metric, it does not take a company’s future growth prospects into account. If investors don't mind incorporating a little more uncertainty into their analysis, they can also consider the PEG ratio, which is based on the P/E multiple and on analyst expectations for future earnings growth and is, therefore, a way to measure a stock’s upside more »

  • Should this stock be there in your portfolio?

    By Nikita Dugar - June 16, 2013 | Tickers: ALJ, HFC, TSO

    Last month, Alon USA Energy (NYSE: ALJ) declared 50% increase in its quarterly dividends, which increased from $0.04 to $0.06 per share. It also announced special non-recurring dividend of $0.16 per share. This was due to its improved performance in the first quarter of 2013. Net income reported during this period was $0.86 per share, compared to loss of $0.52 per share for the same more »

  • Mega-Investor Crispin Odey’s Top 5 Stocks

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - May 31, 2013 | Tickers: DAL, PHM, SIG, TSO, WFC

    Each quarter, hedge funds, such as Crispin Odey’s Odey Asset Management Group, file 13Fs with the SEC. These 13F forms disclose many of the positions held in the funds’ equity portfolios during the quarter. Odey Asset Management, managed by Crispin Odey, is a London-based hedge fund with $6.2 billion in assets under management.

    Originally founded in 1991, Odey’s fund has had its fair share of ups and more »

  • Reviewing 3 Oil Refining & Marketing Companies

    By Federico Zaldua - May 30, 2013 | Tickers: HFC, TSO, VLO

    The refining and marketing sector has been outperforming the rest of the energy sector since 2012. Stocks in this sub-sector are up strongly this year, indicating that they are witnessing solid momentum. The U.S. shale energy revolution is making, once more, refining increasingly attractive. Let's take a look at three companies and decide which one should you include in your portfolio.

  • These 3 Big Refiners Seem Cheap

    By Anh HOANG - May 30, 2013 | Tickers: HFC, TSO, VLO

    Recently, Tesoro (NYSE: TSO) received the U.S. FTC’s approval regarding its acquisition of BP’s refinery in Carson, California. It was reported that Tesoro paid around $2.38 billion for the refinery, doubling its refining capacity in California. Tesoro’s shareholders must be quite happy as its share price has nearly tripled since the middle of 2012, from $22 per share to more than $61 per share. Should more »

  • Monday’s Market-Moving Upgrades Worth Noting

    By Brian Nichols - May 22, 2013 | Tickers: DDD, BKS, TSO

    While the market remained somewhat quiet on Monday, there were a handful of analysts who were a bit more vocal in their opinions of certain stocks. In this piece I am looking at those calls to determine if they were good and if investors should “buy.”

    “Sum-of-the-Parts” Value?

    Shares of Barnes & Noble (NYSE: BKS) were recently trading higher by 7.50% to erase last week’s loss following false acquisition more »

  • These 4 Refiners Are Still Cheap

    By Mark Yagalla - May 16, 2013 | Tickers: MPC, PSX, TSO, VLO

    It was a rough April for the refiners. At the beginning of the month, the EPA outlined a proposal to reduce sulfur in gasoline starting in 2017. That news knocked prices down 10% to 15% across the entire sector. As the month progressed, the Brent/WTI spread has narrowed as WTI prices gained compared to Brent prices. According to Platts:

    Refiners, on the other hand, have been enjoying better refining more »

  • Sell in May, But Don't Go Away

    By Declan Fallon - May 8, 2013 | Tickers: AUXL, KKD, MDSO, THC, TSO, TFM

    The most recent high for the S&P qualified the market under a 'sell' criteria for my Investing Strategy. The last time this happened was in March-April 2012, when the index went on to shed nearly 11% from peak-to-trough by the time the market bottomed in June 2012. However, this should not be viewed as a clarion call to sell everything, but may instead offer a better opportunity to generate more »

  • Refiners Could Be Value in Plain Sight

    By Ted Cooper - May 6, 2013 | Tickers: HFC, TSO, VLO

    It is not often that a large-cap company selling for 10 times earnings is a safe value play, but Valero Energy (NYSE: VLO) may be an exception. Over the last couple of years, crude oil produced in Canada and the United States has sold at a large discount to oil sold in international markets. U.S. refiners benefit from the discount because they can buy cheap oil in the U more »

  • High EBITDA Growth, Consistent Dividend and Cheap Valuation

    By Anh HOANG - May 1, 2013 | Tickers: HFC, TSO, VSEC

    I like a business that has been growing rapidly and has paid uninterrupted dividends for the past 10 years. In addition, that business should be priced cheaply on the market. Thus, I created a stock screen to seek stocks with several criteria: (1) minimum 10 years of uninterrupted dividends, (2) 10-year annualized EBITDA growth should be minimum 20%, (3) the total market cap should be greater than $100 million and more »

  • Will the Oil Market Heat up Again?

    By Lior Cohen - April 28, 2013 | Tickers: CVX, MPC, TSO, USO

    The price of oil plunged during April. Will the price of oil recover from its recent tumble and rally to the $100 mark? How will the shifts in the price of oil affect leading refinery companies? Let’s examine the recent developments in the oil market to answer these questions.

    During April the price of oil tumbled by 8.3%; the United States Oil  Fund (NYSEMKT: USO), an ETF, fell more »

  • The Best Refiner for Growth

    By Matthew Frankel - April 24, 2013 | Tickers: BP, TSO, VLO

    Tesoro (NYSE: TSO) is one of the largest independent refiners of petroleum products in the United States, and has done very well for its shareholders over the past year or so, rising over 140% since this time in 2012.  For a while there, I thought that the stock was getting too expensive, but now I’m not so sure.  What’s more, over the past few weeks, Tesoro has pulled more »

  • Should You Buy or Sell the Phillips 66 Correction?

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - April 22, 2013 | Tickers: HFC, MPC, PSX, TSO, VLO

    Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX) went public as a spinoff of ConocoPhillips a year ago, and it has risen 74% since becoming independently traded. The $36 billion market cap oil and gas refining and marketing company received considerable attention from Warren Buffett, whose holding company Berkshire Hathaway had over 27 million shares in its portfolio at the end of June and made no changes to that position at least through December more »

  • Top Performing Oil Stocks

    By Federico Zaldua - April 17, 2013 | Tickers: HFC, MPC, TSO

    Since I own British Petroleum in my small equities portfolio (I am a much larger bond investor) I have been researching about the whole oil and gas space and its historical returns. I could notice that last year most energy stocks lagged the S&P500 despite record Brent oil and very high WTI prices. Apparently, investors doubt the sustainability of those high energy prices. That said, there were three stocks more »
