7 Stocks That Insiders are Buying Now in 2020 - 1 of 7

 
#1 - Valero Energy Corporation (NYSE:VLO)

Valero Energy logo

Valero Energy Corporation (NYSE: VLO) - Leading off our presentation is one of the big boys in the energy sector. Valero is the largest global independent oil refiner with refineries throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Valero has outstanding fundamentals including, like a lot of energy stocks, a tempting dividend yield that is currently around 4.3%. With all that said, the stock is in the cyclical energy sector and right now the stock is in a trough. It has declined about 30% from its peak of about $121 in August of 2018. It has been trading in a tight range since the beginning of 2019 and has declined over 15% since a first-quarter earnings report that beat estimates but saw a year-over-year decline in gross operating revenue. The stock currently sits at just under $85 per share. However, since the fourth quarter of last year, directors of the company have combined to buy 25,000 shares that are worth $1.87 million. That level of buying is consistent with the company’s history of returning value to shareholders through share repurchases. For long-term investors who can stomach the volatility that is inherent in oil and gas stocks, Valero is a solid choice.
