BP, Enthusiast Gaming, TUI - why these shares are interesting now

  • Investments

The stock exchanges are currently in an interesting market phase. After the price slumps since February 2020, as a result of the spread of the Corona Pandemic, most indices have been able to make significant gains again and are now fluctuating in the middle between the time before COVID-19 and the days when the panic was at its highest. This is no coincidence, as central banks and politicians are all pulling together to provide support, and in some European countries a ban on short selling has even been imposed. In other words, without official market intervention, the recovery would probably have been less rapid.

Market leader in North America with potential

Enthusiast Gaming is the largest online gaming provider in North America. The Canadian company now reaches over 200 million people every month. In times of the spread of COVID-19 and the accompanying initial restrictions, Enthusiast Gaming offers a varied entertainment program for the home with over 100 gaming portals. More than 50 influencers give gamers recommendations and advices and on more than 900 YouTube channels the target group receives different contents around the clock, which can be advertised simultaneously.

In addition, the company has seven professional Esports teams that provide excitement and entertainment. The gaming industry has now reached a sales volume that is twice as large as the music and film industry combined. The value driver of the growing company is access to customers and the opportunities to make money from them.

OPEC+ must continue to cut back

The oil producer BP is currently in the focus of investors like all other large companies in the industry, e.g. Chevron, Royal Dutch Shell and Total. The low oil price is a major concern for the industry. The oversupply due to the decline in demand in connection with the restrictions imposed by COVID-19 is depressing the price of the black gold, and storage capacity must also be created and maintained.

OPEC+ and the major producers will have to agree on further cuts in production in a timely manner to prevent the situation from escalating further. No member of OPEC+ and producer can have an interest in a low oil price, because each barrel produced can only be sold once and the proceeds are needed for the national budget or the return expectations of banks and investors.

Oil producer builds up reserves

The Canadian oil producer Saturn Oil & Gas is interesting in this context, as the company was able to increase its reserves by 63% to over 7.4 million barrels last year. By February 2021, management has hedged half of daily production at a price of over CAD 65.00. In addition, Saturn Oil & Gas plans to play a front-running role in ESG. Oil from countries like Canada, where human rights and environmental protection are important, will become more important in a better world.

The CEO of dynaCERT, Jim Payne, has recently been appointed to the Board of Directors of Saturn Oil & Gas. This decision was based on the expertise of dynaCERT, which has developed a hydrogen technology that reduces the emission of pollutants from combustion engines.

Winners of the crisis

The travel group TUI has experienced the Corona Crisis as the greatest possible accident. The problem for a group with image and reputation is complex and must be handled with confidence in order to emerge from the situation as a potential winner. Already sold tours were cancelled, the program for timely travel was discontinued and stranded customers were brought back home. In simple terms, money is remitted back, revenues are lost and costs to protect customers rise.

The advantage of TUI is that the brand has not been damaged and access to customers is maintained. As soon as the wanderlust returns and the restrictions disappear, the business will flourish again and market shares will increase.


Conflict of interest & risk note

In accordance with §34b WpHG we would like to point out that Apaton Finance GmbH as well as partners, authors or employees of Apaton Finance GmbH may hold shares in the aforementioned companies and that there may therefore be a conflict of interest. Further details can be found in our Conflict of Interest & Risk Disclosure.

Ballard, dynaCERT, Saturn Oil & Gas - Top performers for the time after Corona

  • Investments

The traffic at rush hours is increasing again significantly and also at the gas stations you are queuing up again to pay. Normality is slowly returning, with caution, but it is noticeable. Many things will change, but some things will not. For investors, the most interesting question is, where can I invest now for the new future? It is important that the company's business model is scalable and that the management has already achieved success. Even during the Corona pandemic, a lot happened in the executive floors and many important announcements may not have received adequate attention from the market so far. Ballard Power, dynaCERT and Saturn Oil & Gas have several things in common that are important for a better future.

The past three months have changed the world. Since the outbreak of the Corona Pandemic, the travel business has come to a standstill and the supply of various food products and everyday items has been characterized by bottlenecks. The meat industry is struggling with infections among its employees as a result of the relentless price war. The easing of measures continues to increase and the pie is being redistributed in many parts of the economy. Opportunities for investors.

Allianz, Commerzbank, TUI, Wirecard - and news for investors

  • Investments

A week on the stock market with positive price development is slowly coming to an end. The DAX was at a low of 10,426 points at the beginning of the week and currently stands at 10,837 points. The gain of more than 400 points is mainly due to the relaxation of measures to limit the spread of the Corona Pandemic. In the meantime, more and more citizens have doubts that the Federal Government has reacted appropriately in dealing with Covid-19. In retrospect, of course, people are always smarter. The fact that the opinions of medical specialists and virologists on this type of corona virus diverged widely and that politicians took the side of drastic measures may have contributed to the fact that Germany has got off so lightly so far.
