+ Watch VLO
on My Watchlist
North America’s largest independent petroleum refiner and marketer, Valero takes fuel from the distiller to the gas pump.
S&P 5***** star ratingVLO, currently, has rather low ROE. Will that metric improve in the future as its geographic competitive advantage suggests?From the S&P stock report:Our strong buy opinion reflects our belief that the company is well positioned to benefit from the increasing oil production from shale plays and the Canadian oil sands. Most of this oil is traveling through the Mid-Continent and heading toward the Gulf Coast. We see Valero, as the largest Gulf Coast refiner, benefiting from the increasing supplies, which should lead to lower input costs, creating a cost advantage. We also expect Valero to gain from higher global distillate demand. Its two hydrocracker projects should boost its distillate yields to 39% from 33%.
