Management is taking care of shareholders through dividends and buybacks

Looking for exposure to the oil and gas sector without undue risk? Valero Energy Corporation (VLO) might be one possibility, in my view. While the company operates in a volatile industry, it has consistently increased its dividend and reduced its shares outstanding throughout its history.

The stock has a place on the High-Yield Dividend Screener & High-Dividend Yield Stocks in Gurus' Portfolios, meaning it is a guru holding that provides a dividend yield of at least 4%. GuruFocus gives the company a financial strength rating of 6 out of 10, a profitability rating of 6 out of 10

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 price war has energy stocks plummeting, but that may not mean value buys are ahead

Fears of the new coronavirus (Covid-19) have now spread to the energy sector as the dramatic reduction in travel has resulted in lower global fuel demand.

On Friday, Saudi Arabia and Russia ended their three-year-old agreement on price cooperation, kicking off a price war as Saudi Arabia announced steep discounts and a boost in production. Following the news, the prices of Brent crude (the international oil price benchmark) and U.S. West Texas Intermediate (the U.S. oil price benchmark) dropped 24% on Monday before rebounding approximately 10% on Tuesday.

Low production costs, ample reserves and industry-leading margins make this Canadian company worthy of consideration

The recent record-setting initial public offering of Saudi Arabia’s state-owned oil company, known as Aramco (SAU:2222), has grabbed most of the financial news headlines of late. However, there is a Canadian enterprise, attractively priced, that operates, in terms of captive oil reserves, in a region that has been called the Saudi Arabia of North America.

Suncor Energy Inc. (SU) is Canada’s largest integrated energy company. In terms of share price, it offers a far better value than shares of Aramco's $1.5 trillion offering.
