Sunoco Is Only Unprofitable $1 B+ Oil Company, Says Bloomberg

Sunoco (SUN) is a petroleum refiner and marketer and chemicals manufacturer with interests in logistics and coke making. According to Bloomberg, Sunoco lost $74 million during the past 12 months, making the firm the only unprofitable company during the past 12 months with market values over $1 billion in oil refining and marketing industry in the world.

what is a hedge fund

To boost shareholder value, Sunoco hired Credit Suisse to conduct a comprehensive review of the company. It also plans to break apart its two remaining refineries. According to Barclays, Sunoco may be worth $2.17 billion more if the company is broken up and valued separately by its operations. Based on the sum-of-the-parts analysis, Barclays valued Sunoco at between $48 per share to $58 per share, which would give the company a combined equity value of $5.18 billion to $6.23 billion.

According to Macquarie Group’s analysis, Sunoco may be worth $44 a share to $49.30 a share based on the assumption of a shutdown of the refinery business and liquidation of the inventory. Clearly, Sunoco’s “sum-of-the-parts” far exceeds its current valuation.

Here are the five hedge funds have the largest positions in Sunoco’s stocks at the end of June:

1. Third Point – Dan Loeb: 3,000,000 shares

2. Omega Adivisors – Leon Cooperman: 2,975,012 shares

3. Perry Capital – Richard Perry: 2,025,000 shares
