Below are the three companies in the Oil & Gas Refining & Marketing industry with the highest forward earnings yields. Using projected earnings for the current fiscal year, the forward earnings yield is useful to compare a stock's return vs. owning a similar stock or other yield assets (e.g. bonds). Generally, the higher the earnings yield, the more undervalued the stock.
Valero Energy ranks highest with a forward earnings yield of 11.5%. Western Refining is next with a forward earnings yield of 9.6%. Pacific Ethanol ranks third highest with a forward earnings yield of 8.8%.
Tesoro follows with a forward earnings yield of 8.7%, and HollyFrontier rounds out the top five with a forward earnings yield of 8.4%.
SmarTrend recommended that subscribers consider buying shares of HollyFrontier on May 7th, 2015 as our technology indicated a new Uptrend was in progress when shares hit $40.80. Since that recommendation, shares of HollyFrontier have risen 23.2%. We continue to monitor HollyFrontier for any potential shift so investors can protect gains and will alert SmarTrend subscribers immediately.

Pacific Ethanol discloses terms of the settlement of all of its outstanding litigation with the Aurora Cooperative Elevator Company
The Company, through subsidiaries acquired in its merger transaction with Aventine Renewable Energy Holdings, Inc., became involved in various pending lawsuits with ACEC that pre-dated the Aventine merger. The Company and ACEC agreed to dismiss all lawsuits with prejudice with no admission of fault or liability by the parties, and to release the alleged option held by ACEC to repurchase the land upon which the Company's 110 million gallon ethanol production facility in Aurora, Nebraska is located. In addition, the parties agreed to terminate the grain supply, marketing and various other agreements between them or their subsidiaries.
Under the terms of the settlement, the Company and ACEC will each bear its own costs and fees associated with the lawsuits and the settlement.
