The best is yet to come for U.S. refiners, UBS says

  • UBS analysts say the best is yet to come for U.S. refiners, believing growth in U.S. light oil production from shale risks overwhelming the country’s ability to absorb the barrels with the potential for a price blowout in the difference between Brent crude and Louisiana Light Sweet, with refining stocks as big beneficiaries.
  • With oil prices hovering near $100 mark and the busy summer travel season coming soon, demand should only increase; if refinery investors get the spread blowout many are looking for by Q4, the firm thinks it could get exciting for the top names.
  • UBS top refining stocks to buy now: CVRR, NTI, PSX, TSO, VLO, WNR.

    Wasn't the whole idea of the pursuit of domestic sources of oil and gas to relieve our dependence on 'foreign" oil? Why would we want to export this? Possibly a whole new industry could come out of storing the current over-production for future use.

    Why indeed! We would export the domestic oil and natural gas (byproduct from fracking) where currently a majority of natural gas is being burnt off (e.g. wasted) and if allowed to ship to Europe (as an example) will be beneficial to the US, and allows Europe to be weaned off Russia's stranglehold.

    Gulf Coast crack spreads for Q1/14 were a dismal ~$10/bbl and Cushing inventories are drying up causing the Brent/WTI to shrink to ~$5 .
    UBS must be pumping refiners so they can try and unload them quick .

    Most refiners are buying their oil at below the WTI price...and have been for the last two years....that's why they have run up so far...


    long VLO and of luck to all

    You may be able to click on the first "hi-lighted" part in the Article...
    "the best is yet come for U.S. refiners."..(it pulls up)
    Article from 24/7 Wall Street by Lee Jackson.


    Working through that, may get you closer to what you are looking for from UBS.
    Or maybe UBS has it's own website like ?? good luck..
