CVR Refining Stock Up 7% in After-Hours Trading

CVR Refining (CVRR) reported its third-quarter results on October 24 after the markets closed. The stock rose 7.2% in after-hours trading yesterday. CVR Refining’s adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) rose to $221 million compared to $139 million in Q3 2017. The refiner’s performance was driven by strong crack spreads, wider crude oil differentials, and lower RIN (renewable identification number) costs during the quarter.
