Valero is well positioned to take advantage of a rebound in the energy sector over the next 18-24 months. Strong balance sheet with excellent management.

Keeps showing up over & over in my screens that combine momentum, growth & value. Numbers to make a "closet quant" like myself drool: low P/B, P/S, and P/E ratios; similarly low PEG, whether growth is historical or estimated; low debt; solid EPS growth over multiple years; plus a 2.4% dividend yield to sweeten the pot. Time will tell whether or not I got to this party too late!

It appears that the lower of gas prices will keep this stock treading water for awhile!

Low P/E, high recent growth on EPS, solid dividend. I'm not an energy stock watcher, but this may change my mind.

Positive:
- Based on recent earnings trends they occur cheap
- Correction might give a reasonable entry point
- Good dividend

Negative:
- The shrinking WTI-Brent spread isn’t a good sign because it threatens to take away an advantage VLO currently enjoys

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

It is the right time for this stock........Oil is plentiful and with the new pipes coming from Canada and the Dakotas Oil should drop in price..... Housing starts are increasing and all those F150's going to work will need to tank up.......

Energy boom.

I purchased positions on 10/11 - 11/18 - and finally on 12/4.

I feel confident it will continue to rise throughout 2014.

Stock is trading at a 40% discount to our valuation. Brent/WTI spread has all but disappeared and pipeline infrastructure to gulf improving. VLO is largest Oil/Gas refiner and trades at an +11% earnings yield based on analyst estimates of 2014 earnings. Dividends are increasing.

FCF yield = 12%.
Prudent and disciplined dividend paybacks highlights management commitment towards shareholders.
Valero is also able to command higher margins due to its more complex refineries, giving it a cost advantage over the competition.
Coupled with industry-wide recovery, Valero is positioned well to share more returns with shareholders.

S&P 5***** star rating

VLO, 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%.
