CAPS member elks42 elaborates on the HollyFrontier bull case:
Looking over the balance sheet and various stats, the company seems to be in pretty good shape, especially given its value as far as P/E goes and given that they pay an OK dividend. ... [A]ll in all, looks like a good value on a stock that is pretty secure as far as the long run goes, and seems to be growing fairly well. That's good enough for me!
