Vertex Energy: This Refining Business Is Priced At 3x 2023 Free Cash Flows

Vertex Energy hasn't been a holding for the faint-hearted, as its share slides 30% in the last month. However, its business is performing very strongly. And equally important for investors, its balance sheet is flexible with not a lot of debt. Vertex Energy operations are approximately 50% hedged, and likely to continue be so. This will help to smooth out the volatility of refining prices. Paying approximately 3x next year's free cash flows is a cheap valuation. I rate this stock a buy.
