In a news release , the company said it rarely discusses full-year guidance on a quarterly basis, but “weaker-than-expected first-quarter results will reduce the likelihood of achieving” a profit of $140 million to $190 million that the company expected when it filed its fourth-quarter and full-year guidance expectations on Feb. 1. The company’s new 2017 guidance predicts a full-year profit of $90 million to $160 million, a shortfall of at least $30 million from the February full-year guidance. The company blamed unfavorable market conditions leading to soft retail fuel volumes and lackluster results from its product supply and wholesale activities. “These market factors include, but are not limited to, record-high gasoline inventories, subdued retail demand and discounted pipeline space volumes,” the news release said. The company, which operates about 1,400 gasoline and convenience locations in 26 states, said it expects market fundamentals to return to a “more normalized state” later in the year, and pointed out that previous first quarters have been among Murphy USA’s worst since the company was spun off from Murphy Oil Corp. in 2013, even in years when profits substantially rebounded. “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,” said President and CEO Andrew Clyde. “In our 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. “While we don’t expect discussions around guidance on a quarterly basis going forward, we are prudently level-setting expectations to maintain transparency with investors and affirm our commitment to long-term value creation for shareholders.” Separately, the company announced that Daryl Schofield will join the company as executive vice president of fuels, effective May 3. Schofield will oversee the entire fuels value chain and fuels organization for Murphy USA, the company said. Schofield will join the company from Tesoro Corp.

Marnie seems to have moments of self-reflection and then backtrack, do you think the scene in the pawn shop this season had a lasting effect in changing how she sees herself? I love that scene for a million reasons, but especially because Marnies ability to view herself has always been hindered by her own point of view on the person shes talking to. Its hard for her to take constructive criticism from Hannah, Jessa and Shosh because theyre all peers, so the idea of taking a big lesson from them always felt silly for Marnie. But whenever she faces these cold truths, it comes from unexpected sources. In this case, she thinks shes wearing something she thought this man in a pawn shop had never seen before. Shes like Im not your average pawn shopper, this is an anomalous situation for me. And he tells her, Hey, nobody comes in here when everythings great. You arent an exception to every rule. And whenever somebody says that to Marnie, its very tough for her to hear, but its important. Its also easier to hear when its not coming from someone you watched throw up at a college party. But the phone call she makes to Desi afterwards shows that the talk had an impact on her that other talks dont always land. Because it came from this stranger and because it came at a very vulnerable moment for her, it does end up altering things for her. It sets the stage for someone who is starting to learn how to operate in the world given how she is.
