Valero Energy (VLO) +1.6% AH after its board approves the spinoff of its retail business, CST Brands. VLO said last summer it would explore options for the gasoline and convenience stores it owns in the U.S. and Canada, including a spinoff that gives its shareholders ownership of the retail unit.

    A side question....what happens to the options some of us hold?

     

    I know: "tis better to be assumed a fool, that to open ones mouth and remove a doubt."

    Most likely your options will expire before any spin off occurs. Meantime Shabyu, you may be eligible to get into ownership of one of their convenience stores.

    This seems to be the latest wrinkle. Separate upstream from downstream. Probably a better move for majors with more COCO's since the value of the brand has become diminished with increased use of debit cards.
