Now it's all happening at once with the news in the race against the Corona pandemic. According to BioNTech and its US competitor Moderna, first deliveries of the vaccine are scheduled for the end of this year and the start of 2021. The first step towards normality, even though the head of BioNTech, Ugur Sahin, does not expect a normal social life until the end of 2021 at the earliest. Then, if everything goes smoothly, badly shaken industries should experience an unprecedented renaissance, and their share prices should take off.

Oil in a deep sleep

The economy in partial lockdown, planes on the ground and hotels closed. The rapid economic downturn has shaken the oil industry to its core. Traces of the downturn can be seen on the chart of Brent oil. 1 barrel cost almost USD 68.00 in October 2019 and then came Corona. At the low point, the price was USD 27.00 but is currently stabilizing at just under USD 42.00. The reason for the stabilization is the imminent prospect of quickly approved vaccines.

Analysts optimistic

According to the analysts, the turnaround is imminent. Citigroup's experts assume that the global oil demand will reach the pre-Corona level by the end of 2021. At Fitch Solutions, too, the situation remains relaxed. It confirmed its forecast for the price of Brent oil through 2024 at the end of October. Analysts expect Brent to cost an average of USD 44.0 per barrel in 2020, USD 51.0 per barrel in 2021, USD 53.0 per barrel in 2022, USD 55.0 per barrel in 2023 and USD 58.0 per barrel in 2024.

Cheapest oil producer in Canada

In comparison to industry giants such as Exxon Mobil, Shell, BP, who all quote production costs of more than USD 30 per barrel, the Canadian oil producer Saturn Oil & Gas pays only a measly USD 12 per barrel. These low costs made the Calgary-based Company by far the cheapest oil producer in Canada in 2019.

Falling prices as an opportunity

If the CEO of Saturn Oil & Gas John Jeffrey has his way, production costs are to be kept within this range. Since own drilling programs tend to be more complex and expensive, the management's strategy is based on inorganic growth, i.e. the acquisition of exciting competitors that have an attractive risk/reward profile due to the crisis. The ambitious goal of Saturn Oil & Gas is to become an innovation leader in the oil and gas industry.

Management trimmed for growth

In addition to the appointment of the experienced Wendy Woolsey as interim CFO, the management of Saturn Oil & Gas has achieved another coup. Jean-Pierre Colin joins the team as the senior strategy consultant. Colin is regarded in the industry as one of the great minds due to his incredibly successful career. Among other things, Colin has advised several high-ranking politicians in the Canadian federal government and the Privy Council of Canada on five acquisitions of the country's largest oil and gas companies in the 1980s by Petro-Canada. Colin also served on the boards of many successful junior commodities companies, including Pelangio Mines Inc. and Virginia Gold Inc. which sold its Eleonor project for more than $1 billion to Goldcorp Inc., now known as Newmont Corporation.

Clear objectives

The newcomer was relatively clear about its objectives: "Saturn Oil & Gas represents a unique opportunity to build an acquisition vehicle for oil and gas that offers inorganic growth opportunities and returns for its shareholders and other key stakeholders". The current market capitalization of Saturn Oil & Gas is just under EUR 15 million. It is probably only a matter of time before the first success stories are reported on the tickers. Since the last announcement, there has been a noticeable increase in trading volume at ever-higher prices. The share price on the TSXV is currently CAD 0.12. A sustained break-out through the resistance at CAD 0.14 should result in significantly higher prices.

BYD, Canadian Solar, Silver Viper - don't miss the start!

The optimism for life in normality is growing more and more with the successful test results concerning the vaccines against the coronavirus. The administration of a vaccine, which is to be available to the general public from spring 2021 onwards, should make it possible to relax increasingly in everyday life. If one reads the daily news, the pandemic seems to be contained and thus controllable within a few months. The "victims" of this development are the crisis currencies gold and silver. After their highs, both precious metals and mining stocks are initially taking a breather - but a comeback is very likely.

Sartorius, Drägerwerk, Desert Gold: Vaccines for the portfolio

  • Investments

The crisis is on the home stretch. Several vaccines have been found and are about to be approved. But it will still take a while before the pandemic is defeated: millions of people need to be vaccinated. Usually, two doses of vaccine are required for this purpose, which must be administered at specific intervals. This Herculean logistical task must succeed in many countries if normality is to be restored. This much seems inevitable: 2021 will still be under the influence of the virus. Corona also leaves its mark on the capital market, whether directly or indirectly.

Gold has not made it out - for the time being. Due to the decision of the Americans pro Joe Biden and the very successful developments regarding a vaccine against the coronavirus, the precious yellow metal went downhill for the time being. The correction may well continue a little further. However, in the past, these setbacks were lucrative with anti-cyclical entry opportunities. Therefore, one should use the time now to take a closer look at promising gold mines.
