Shares of Valero Energy (NYSE:VLO) opened today above their pivot of $44.29 and have already reached the first level of resistance at $44.56. Should the shares continue to rise, the resistance pivots of $44.89 and $45.49 will be of interest.

In the past 52 weeks, shares of Valero Energy have traded between a low of $20.00 and a high of $48.97 and are now at $44.77, which is 124% above that low price. In the last five trading sessions, the 50-day moving average (MA) has climbed 2.3% while the 200-day MA has risen 1.8%.

Valero Energy Corporation is an independent petroleum refining and marketing company that owns and operates refineries in the United States, Canada, and Aruba. The Company produces conventional gasolines, distillates, jet fuel, asphalt, petrochemicals, lubricants, and other refined products as well as diesel fuel, low-sulfur and ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel, and oxygenates.

Potential upside of 11.1% exists for Valero Energy, based on a current level of $44.77 and analysts' average consensus price target of $49.75. The stock should find initial support at its 50-day moving average (MA) of $43.35 and further support at its 200-day MA of $32.69.
