Guru Investment Theses on Marathon Petroleum Corp

Bernard Horn Comments on Marathon Petroleum - Mar 16, 2015

One bright spot was Marathon Petroleum (MPC). The company differentiates itself from competitors with a business model that focuses on domestic refining and gas station franchises. Refining margins are up and refiners, like Marathon Petroleum, are increasing throughput ahead of expected additions to production in 2015. In the past year, Marathon Petroleum’s division Speedway acquired Hess, expanding its retail station presence from nine to 23 states throughout the East Coast and Southeast. Recent lower gas prices may spur on more travel and subsequently more stops at gas stations.

Baron Funds Comments on Marathon Petroleum Corp - Feb 25, 2014

Marathon Petroleum Corp. (MPC) is one of the largest independent refiners and marketers of crude oil and refined products in the U.S. The shares performed strongly during the fourth quarter as investors anticipated rising profitability due to signals that refining margins were expanding on widening price differentials between domestic and international oil prices. Shares also appeared to benefit from increased visibility into Marathon's pipeline of midstream assets that can be dropped down into its Master Limited Partnership in the future.

From Ron Baron (Trades, Portfolio)'s Baron Funds fourth quarter 2013 commentary.
