Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star Quaker08, tapped the stock as a particularly timely opportunity:

Nicely positioned to take advantage of low WTI price. [Wednesday's] inventory report shows supply is rising in Cushing. I don't think the Seaway pipeline will be able to stop supply glut. It will be interested to see if there are any other pipeline reversals in the coming months. Until then, [HollyFrontier] and mid-continent refiners are in a sweet spot.  

If you want to retire rich, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong five-star rating, HollyFrontier may not be your top choice.
