  • Oil Refiners Insider Trading Activity, Second Quarter 2011 0 comments
    Jun 17, 2011 9:06 AM | about stocks: MRO, HFC, WNR, CLMT, TSO, VLO, XOM, COP, CVX
    Under the ongoing assumption that the operators of a business are in the best position to know what the business is doing, we periodically review the insider trading activity in the Oil  Refining group.

    Keep in mind that Corporate Officers are people too, and a lot of them are compensated in options and other equity-related ways, and may occasionally have a transaction for non-business and personal reasons. Also the second quarter in this industry is typically the annual maximum in profitability, some of this may be just taking advantage of the seasonality.

    The source of this information is Yahoo Finance.

    The vast majority of the activity this quarter has been selling, some of it substantial.

    There was not a flurry of insider activity before the merger of Frontier Oil and Holly Corporation, in late March, The insiders of Marathon Oil have been net sellers in advance of the upcoming spinoff of their refining business.
