Has done exceptionally well recently. Crack spread has been very attractive recently. Refineries have a tendency to blow up and catch fire. Would be cautious on them.

One of the very few pure refiner plays. Good name from a fundamental standpoint, but does not lend itself well to a trading strategy. This is a stock you buy before the summer driving season.

The largest independent oil refining and marketing company in North America. You want to own refining stocks when margins are going up which they are currently doing.

(A Top Pick Feb 3/06. Down 1.2%.) Had a strong run in the summer. One of that few pure play refiners. Still buying. Cheap.

(A Top Pick Oct 17/06. Up 6.7%.) The model price is $95 giving it a positive differential of 75%. Got hit with the drop in oil prices, which makes no sense as they are a refinery.

(A Top Pick Jan 25/06. Down 16.2%.) A pure play refinery. Has a very complicated suite of refineries that is able to process different blends and should get a premium. Dirt cheap.

Great company and is an interesting sector. Trades at less than 6 X earnings. Hasn't been a new refinery built in North America in 25 years. Would have to look at its fundamentals, but likes the company and what they're doing and are well positioned.

Refinery with most assets in the southern US. Has dropped since August. The fight centres on how expensive gasoline will be. Refining is in short supply. Gasoline demand goes up about 1.5% per year.

Volatile. As a refiner, it is highly leveraged to the price of oil and the margins it makes on each barrel. Has come off very sharply. For less volatility, look at Chevron (CVX-N), Exxon (XOM-N), ConocoPhilips (COP-N) or Petro Canada (PCA-T).

His model price is $95.50 which is a positive 80% differential. Huge earnings coming on the balance sheet make it cheaper literally every day. Very volatile. Could go to $62.50 without any sweat.

This is a cyclical company. Very small dividend but plenty of free cash flow so that they can expand or build a refinery if they have to.

Largest refiner in North America. Gasoline prices have dropped and this comes out of the refiner's pockets. Margins are declining, especially as we are off the summer driving season. Buy on weakness over the next couple of months. Good company.
