Oil refiners primed for profits, Barron's says

The outlook for companies that turn crude oil into gasoline has looked better and demand for refining is poised to grow faster than supply in the years ahead, leading to a surge in profits and share prices across the industry, Jack Hough writes in this week's edition of Barron's. Refiners include Andeavor (ANDV), Marathon Petroleum (MPC), Philips 66 (PSX) and Valero (VLO), the report notes. Reference Link

Tailwinds outstrip headwinds in refining outlook, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Sam Margolin said he has a constructive refining outlook despite the current headwinds that include increased China capacity and a Brent/WTI compression. The analyst said the second half of the year should see those headwinds pass and said outside of global demand growth, MARPOL shipping industry regulations are requiring low sulfur marine fuel worldwide, and U.S. Tier-3 gasoline requirements could result in lower octane supply as a consequence of the de-sulferization processes. Margolin favors Valero (VLO), Phillips 66 (PSX), Delek (DK), Marathon (MPC), and Andeavor (ANDV) in the refining space.
