The chart is self-explanatory. I'm not saying these two will cross, but so long as they converge, it is a good sign to be long MPC . The stock itself is oversold. It has lost half it's market cap since early Dec. Since free-falling, it has found a nice bottom at $29.
Buying MPC in the low $30s and holding until April could bring us closer to the $55-70 valuation. Selling at $50 is more in line at the lower end of analysts revised expectations.
If INDEX:OVX stabilizes, and INDEX:SPX decides to capitulate, overlay MPC with the S&P , and you'll find that this stock has historically bucked the market.
Disclosure: I am long MPC .
I know the market dynamics are different now than before the oil crash, but MPC this is another instance in a history of many instances where the stock bucks the S&P.
Disclosure: I am still long MPC.
