Now I could be very wrong about this. I know SO FAR today the refiners are doing well ( the day is not over yet).....But after the FTO/HOC merger it seems to me that WNR could be nearing a similar strategic alliance. Once the FTO/HOC spark was ignited it sort of forces the others to take some type of action- and thus I see a domino effect in the making. Not trying to hype this thing! But I see TSO, WNR, and ALJ ..Maybe even CVI joining some type of alliance......And I think all of this will happen in the very near future. Again, I might not be correct, but its what I see as a strategic reality...JMHO D
Sorry about that..Its my mistake- the way I wrote it..I never meant to imply that three would merge or have an alliance! I just listed the companies that I thought had a reasonable chance of finding a partner for some type of alliance. .......But anyway, you get the idea.......With HOC/FTO more of this type of structure is likely to follow.
