    Shares of oil refiners have gushed higher over the past year, but so have earnings - meaning the stocks may still look cheap. "It's a circular formula," Oppenheimer's Fadel Gheit says: Belief that the refiner boom will end keeps investment low, which strains capacity and keeps the boom running. Analysts have underestimated refiner earnings for six straight quarters, and they still are. (also)

    Until inventories increase on the U.S. east coast, refiners are likely to continue making handsome profits and their share prices likely will continue rising, Paul Ausick writes. Eastern refinery closures are contributing to a short supply of gasoline; the difference is made up by gasoline imports from Europe, where refiners are bidding up the Brent spot price to acquire crude to refine and send to New York.

    Argus Research raises its price target for HollyFrontier (HFC +0.2%) to $68 from $48, believing HFC may benefit from high refiner margins longer than many anticipate due to strong U.S. onshore production growth. The firm thinks the company's management is very shareholder friendly, and it maintains a Buy rating on the shares.

    Valero's (VLO +11.4%) "best quarter in years" is broadly lifting shares of other refiners: TSO +4.5%, PSX +4.6%, HFC +5.7%, WNR +5.1%, MPC +4.9%. VLO's switch away from imported light, sweet crude toward domestic sources was anticipated but came earlier than expected, and represents a milestone in a U.S. energy industry hoping for self-sufficiency.

    Shares of refiners fared well today as U.S. crude prices fell after Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) said "unforeseen constraints" would cause it to reduce flows on its Seaway pipeline to 175K bbl/day. Capacity on the line had jumped past 400K bbl/day and helped to drive Nymex prices up by $12/bbl since December. VLO +2.1%, HFC +3.6%, TSO +3.3%, PSX +1.6%.

    HollyFrontier (HFC +0.6%) is upgraded to Overweight with a $65 target price raised from $55 by Barclays, which sees support from the regular plus special dividend yield of 7% vs. the 1.6% peer average. The firm also sees further upside as the LLS/WTI differential could sustain above the pipeline economics level for several years compared to most in the market.

    Phillips 66 (PSX -2.4%) has been "badly affected" by Hurricane Sandy, so Deutsche Bank downgrades shares to Hold from Buy over weather and related shortage impacts on northeast U.S. oil markets that comprise 27% of U.S. oil demand and 6% of global demand. Only HollyFrontier (HFC +1.4%) remains rated at Buy among big refiners covered by the firm.

    HollyFrontier (HFC +0.9%) is one of few energy issues on the rise today, after Q3 earnings jumped 15% as wide differences between crude prices boosted refining margins 8.7% Y/Y. HFC says the structural crude advantages currently driving strong operating margins will continue to positively impact operating income, allowing it to continue to pay regular and special dividends.
