First and foremost, I’ll admit that I am not a stock market expert and this post does not constitute investing advice but I’d like to explain why I’m investing in Valero Energy Corporation. Wednesday (May 13th) however I decided to liquidate my measly four shares in Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) at the price of $243.69 and invest in 12 shares of Valero Energy Corporation (NYSE:VLO). I put all remaining cash into Schwab’s S&P 500 Index fund (MUTF:SWPPX). In doing so, I hope to have made a good mid-term value investment. I’ve detailed my reasons within this post.
