It is absurd! Look at Valero...no big sell recommendations. WNR certainly looks strong on a fundamental basis and technically. So Valero has got the sour crude thing covered...America still isn't building any refineries anytime soon. These analysts are idiots.
The analysts aren't idiots... they just want to drive the price down so they can pick it up cheap! There should be a law against them doing this but it gives me the chance to pick up more shares. I'm in for the long haul and expect this stock and VLO, TSO, FTO etc to be an excellent investment for the long term!
