moat C / 240financial strength C / 200

Our approach concludes the company's business moat is weak. Its position within the Basic Materials sector appears to be weak. Either the dynamics of its sector place it in a difficult position or management's executition is to blame for its disappointing performance.Valero Energy Corp has a Piotroski F Score of 4 out of 9. The F Score examines changes in profitability, leverage, liquidity, and operating efficiency. Interest coverage of 7x, a debt/equity ratio of 40% and a Moat Rank of 240 translate to a weak Financial Strength score.


momentum B / 172

This performance is average compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 172. Based on its 12 month stock performance, Valero Energy Corp will not appeal to momentum investors.

growth C / 310
A company's growth metrics are less important than its valuation, moat, and financial strength. However, a check on growth can be a good way to avoid companies in secular decline. The company's growth in sales, earnings, and book value places it among the bottom third of S&P500 companies. Its 6.1% 5 year annualized EPS growth, -9.7% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of 8.5% speak to its relatively poor ranking.
