On November 2016, CVR Energy (NYSE: CVI) made an important low to end a daily correction from 2013 peak, up from there the stock either started a new bullish cycle to take it toward new all time highs or it’s just doing a 3 waves bounce.
We can notice that since last year low, CVI has outperformed the energy sector instruments including crude, XLE and stocks like XOM & CVX. CVR Energy is currently up %104 and looking for further gains during the last quarter of the year.
The energy sector was the weakest performer since the start of the year and despite the recent bounce seen since August 2017 low the majority of related instruments remain with a negative gain for 2017 and only CVI has managed to move back to the positive territory last week leading the move higher.
