Changes in Renewable Fuel Regulations in 2017 Could Impact Your Energy Investments

A change in renewable fuel regulations would be a negative for companies like Chevron and BP, says S&P Capital IQ.

There could be a change in federal renewable fuel regulations under a Trump administration, which would create winners and losers in the energy sector in 2017, according to S&P Capital IQ.

Many of the integrated oils could be potential losers if this change occurs, according to Stewart Glickman, an equity analyst with CFRA. He says that includes Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) , BP (BP)  and Chevron (CVX) , as well as pure-play alternative fuel companies Renewable Energy (REGI)  and Pacific Ethanol (PEIX) .

Glickman says prospective winners include oil and gas refiners CVR Energy (CVR) , Alon USA Energy (ALJ) , HollyFrontierundefined , Calumet Speciality Products Partners (CLMT)  and Delek US Holdings (DK) .
