  • Oil

The contact restrictions around the globe have led to a decrease in the consumption of crude oil. A large part of the crude oil produced worldwide comes from OPEC countries. These countries depend mainly on the sales revenues from the black gold with their national budgets. The largest producing countries currently include the USA, Saudi Arabia and Russia. In the period before the Corona Pandemic, these countries each produced around 10 barrels (159 litres) per day. At a price of USD 65.00 per barrel, this means that the daily sales revenue was around USD 650 million. The price of WTI today costs around USD 21.50 per barrel, which at the same production rate only corresponds to sales of USD 215 million per day - the cuts are significant.

    Sell or store?

    The groups like BP, Royal Dutch Shell and Total all have the same problem, what to do with the oil, if nobody can use it in the usual quantity at the moment? Sell it at a low price or store it for a fee and then offer it on the market later? After all, from the producers' point of view, each barrel can only be sold once.

    However, some countries or companies have no choice and have to produce and sell at any price because of their liquidity needs. Oil traders then buy the production and store it if their financial framework allows it.

    Secured through the crisis

    Then there are companies that have secured their production as a precautionary measure and can watch the current oil price development calmly. The young company Saturn Oil & Gas from Canada recently announced that they have hedged around half of their daily production volume at a price of over 65.00 CAD per barrel until February 2021. The management took the helm at Saturn three years ago and is now building an environmentally friendly oil producer from it.

    dynaCERT CEO Jim Payne was recently appointed as a member of Saturn's Board of Directors. This is an interesting step, as dynaCERT has patented a hydrogen technology that can significantly reduce the emission of pollutants in combustion engines.

    Portfolio of tanker companies

    There are various tanker companies around the world that are profiting from the current oversupply on the oil market. The listed companies include Diana Shipping, Frontline, Nordic American Tankers, Scorpio Tankers, Teekay Tankers and Top Ships. As long as the major oil producers are not able to concertedly adjust their production volume to current global demand, the tanker companies will experience hype.

    Who would have thought it is possible that Tankers will become popular in 2020 and that speculators will be able to move the price of oil futures into negative territory on the expiration date?

    BP, Saturn Oil + Gas, Shell - Oil shares in focus after the French election

    • Oil
    • Gas

    The EU wants to tighten Russia sanctions further. Oil and coal imports are to be stopped. According to Annalena Baerbock, it should be ready by the end of the year. But will it stay that way? At the moment, it has not yet been possible to bring an immediate import stop, also in order not to endanger the election in France. The duel between Macron and Le Pen is too close, and the challenger could use further price explosions in the energy sector to her advantage. JPMorgan sees the oil price at USD 185 if the EU immediately stops its imports. Once the election is over, the full import ban could come. France's Finance Minister LeMaire recently said that an EU ban on Russian oil is underway. We look at three beneficiaries of rising oil prices.

    BP, Saturn Oil + Gas, Deutsche Rohstoff - Continued clear dependence

    • Oil
    • Gas

    We can spin it any way we want and make further ambitious plans for a faster transition from fossil fuels to renewables. Still, currently, the global economy is dependent on oil and natural gas. And this is likely to remain the case in the near future, as seen from the significant rises in Brent and WTI crude oil. The primary beneficiaries of this trend - JPMorgan declared a supercycle for oil as early as June 2020 - are undoubtedly the producers of the black gold.

    K+S, Barsele Minerals, Shell - Which commodity stocks belong in the portfolio?

    • Gold
    • Commodities
    • Oil

    Commodity prices are rising in almost all areas. To blame everything on the Ukraine conflict is too short-sighted. Fertilizer prices have significantly increased in the past year due to crop failures caused by natural disasters. Oil prices also began to rise last year. However, the sanctions against Russia gave the oil price a further significant tailwind. Gold has only been able to increase with the outbreak of the Ukraine war and is currently quoted at between USD 1,900 and 2,000. The high inflation should further increase the demand for gold. Today we look at three companies from the three sectors and analyze their potential.
