8 Stocks Benefiting From North America's Energy Boom

4. HollyFrontier Corp. (HFC - Get Report)

Company profile: HollyFrontier, with a market value of $6 billion, is an independent petroleum refiner that owns and operates five refineries in the U.S. and also has a stake in pipelines and storage terminals.

Dividend Yield: 1.93%

Investor takeaway: Its shares are up 38% this year and have a three-year, average annual return of 48%. Analysts give its shares six "buy" ratings, four "buy/holds," six "holds," and one "weak hold," according to a survey of analysts by S&P.

S&P says: "We continue to be positive on its asset location, which we believe gives the company an advantage given the increasing production coming from Canada and the shale plays" from the upper Midwest, as well as its ability to process heavy and sour crude oils into a high percentage of gasoline and diesel." But it expects margins to be pressured this year due to the U.S. crude glut.

It says "the company is well-positioned to benefit from the increasing oil production from shale plays and the Canadian oil sands."
