By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Oil & Gas Refining & Marketing industry with the highest projected earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (current fiscal year estimated vs. last year actual) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

Alon USA Energy ranks highest with a projected earnings growth of 143.6%. Following is Tesoro with a projected earnings growth of 106.8%. HollyFrontier ranks third highest with a projected earnings growth of 86.5%.

Valero Energy follows with a projected earnings growth of 28.8%, and NuStar Energy rounds out the top five with a projected earnings growth of 24.1%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of HollyFrontier on September 2nd, 2016 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $24.67. Since that call, shares of HollyFrontier have fallen 4.1%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
