8 Stocks Benefiting From North America's Energy Boom

4. HollyFrontier Corp. (HFC)

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.
