Valero (VLO) Offering Possible 74.83% Return Over the Next 8 Calendar Days

Valero's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Valero is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $78.00 short call and a strike $83.00 long call offers a potential 74.83% return on risk over the next 8 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $78.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $2.14 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $2.86 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $83.00 long call strike price.

The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Valero is bearish and the probability of a decline in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.

The 20-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Valero is bearish.

The RSI indicator is at 67.61 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

Refiners Are Emerging from Deep Freeze and Buying U.S. Oil Again
Mon, 08 Mar 2021 18:30:59 +0000
(Bloomberg) — Physical oil prices in the U.S. are rebounding to levels seen before a deep freeze hit Texas last month, showing fuel-making plants are thirsty for crude again.Seven of 18 refineries affected by the cold blast — making up over 2 million barrels a day of crude processing capacity — were operating normally as of Monday. Mars Blend, a regional sour crude benchmark, traded this month at the largest premium to Nymex oil futures in nearly three weeks, while other key grades also firmed. Another reason for the strength is due to increased demand for U.S. crude from overseas buyers after OPEC+’s surprise decision to continue limiting supply.As much as 5.5 million barrels a day of crude processing capacity was suspended when arctic temperatures in the U.S. south halted power supply and damaged equipment at refineries in America’s energy hub in February. Crude inventories piled up by a record 22 million barrels as a result. Since then, plants including those operated by Motiva Enterprises LLC and Valero Energy Corp. have restarted, and the rest of the sites will likely resume operation this week.Buying is popping up from South Korea, India, Canada and Europe, although interest from China has been muted because of high inventories. With OPEC producers keeping supply cuts in place in April, some customers that were expecting available supply from Middle East producers, especially of medium-high sulfur crudes, may have to seek alternatives like Mars Blend or Poseidon.Saudi Arabia’s decision to increase official selling prices for its April supply to Asia and the U.S. could also spur additional purchases of U.S. sour crudes.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
