MPC is likely the best performer in a terrible industry. In the short term, MPC's refineries are well-positioned to take advantage of great crack spreads in the Midwest. Several of MPC's refineries are excellent (and very profitable) operations.But in the long run, refining is still a terrible industry. I'm holding onto shares of both MRO and MPC for now. I have complete faith in MRO, but I am keeping a closer eye on MPC. Once things start to look sour, I am running for the exit. In the meantime, I'm going to sit back and collect the dividend.
