Murphy USA (MUSA) provided guidance on several metrics for 2017. While the company does not typically discuss full-year guidance on a quarterly basis, weaker-than-expected first quarter results will reduce the likelihood of achieving some of the company`s full-year guidance metrics. "The first quarter is typically a period of lower earnings for the company, but a variety of market conditions along with regulatory and political events have converged that will result in short-term underperformance versus historical Q1 results," said President and CEO Andrew Clyde. "In our 20 year history, we have weathered a wide variety of challenging market conditions, which eventually experience mean reversion and we expect that this year will be no different.“
