Guru stock highlight

The stock price of oil refiner Marathon Petroleum (MPC) trended in line with oil supply/demand volatility, jumping up more than 60% from the first to second quarter of 2020, only to lose momentum in the third quarter. Brent crude futures fell and Chinese demand lessened. Nevertheless, Marathon made strategic top-line (selling Speedway gas stations) and bottom-line (reducing expenses and headcount) decisions which should offer some protection against broader commodity market tumult.

According to the GuruFocus All-in-One Screener, a Premium feature, the following guru-owned stocks have grown their book value per share over the past decade through Sept. 23.

Book value per share is calculated as total equity minus preferred stock, divided by shares outstanding. Theoretically, it is what shareholders will receive if a company is liquidated. Total equity is a balance sheet item and is equal to total assets minus total liabilities.

Since the book value per share may not reflect the company's true value, some investors check the tangible book value to confirm their investment ideas.

Oil refiner Marathon Petroleum Corp. (MPC) jumped more than 60%, recouping most of its losses from the first quarter. The company capitalized on a recovery in oil and energy prices from the depths of April, while also continuing its efforts to spin -off its Speedway gas stations business. A COVID-19 update outlined Marathon’s efforts to delay capital expenditures, reduce operating expenses and defer tax payments, all of which are expected to protect the business during this period of extreme volatility.

Pervasive weakness across the energy sector, and in global refining markets and crack spreads specifically, pulled down Marathon Petroleum (MPC) during the quarter.

WTI crude falls more than 20%

A week after U.S. oil prices plunged into negative territory as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to suppress demand, the commodity declined more than 20% on Monday morning.

Since oil storage facilities around the world continue to fill up as manufacturing has slowed down and consumers are not traveling, West Texas Intermediate for June delivery declined 25% to $12.71 per barrel, while international benchmark Brent crude tumbled 6.2% to $20.11 per barrel.

The decrease in demand has dragged several energy stocks down along with it. As such, good value opportunities could be found among companies that are not only trading below

The stocks that Wall Street analysts most adored a year ago all fell

The four stocks that Wall Street analysts most adored a year ago all fell.

The analysts’ darlings as of January 2019 posted a 15% loss from Jan. 14, 2019 through Jan. 10, 2020. This happened even as the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, widely used as a gauge of the U.S. stock market, rose 26%.

What about the four stocks that analysts despised the most a year ago? They fell 9%, but that was a milder loss than the favorites experienced.

Abiomed Inc. (ABMD) was the biggest disappointment among the analysts’ darlings, falling 40%. Viper Energy Partners LP (VNOM) dropped

Another attractive play in the undervalued energy sector

MPLX LP (MPLX) controls natural gas gathering and processing assets in low-cost United States natural gas basins such as the Marcellus, the Permian and Utica. It also runs storage facilities and pipelines that run into Marathon Petroleum's (MPC) refinery complex. Marathon Petroleum is its majority shareholder with a 64% stake.

I'm a shareholder of MPLX, and I think it is currently an amazing opportunity for the folloiwing reasons:

1) It may potentially convert to a C-corp in the future.

2) Marathon Petroleum will potentially decrease its stake, allowing more publci ownership.

The activist firm's newest target is AT&T

Elliott Management, the investment firm founded by renowned guru Paul Singer (Trades, Portfolio) in 1977, disclosed four new positions in its third-quarter portfolio, which was released in November.

Based on these criteria, the activist firm established holdings in AT&T Inc. (T), Mobile Mini Inc. (MINI), Carbonite Inc. (CARB) and Cision Ltd. (CISN) during the quarter.


As previously reported in September, Singer’s firm invested in 3.12 million

An interesting strategy adopted by a number of retail investors recently is following hedge funds and building their portfolios on the basis of the investments of some of the top fund managers in the U.S. There is nothing wrong with following this approach in terms of stock picking, as long as investors are carrying out an objective analysis of the company. Such an approach often brings about very interesting investment picks, and one of the names appearing among a number of well-known funds over the past few months is Marathon Petroleum Corp. (MPC).
