BP, Saturn Oil & Gas, Shell - China's oil imports at new record high

  • Oil

The Corona Pandemic has turned the world upside down in many areas in recent months. The energy sector has not been able to escape the changes. First the demand for crude oil collapsed and then production was cut back. In the meantime, restrictions around the globe are being eased again and there are still opportunities to position oneself to benefit from the post-Corona upswing. The habits of the population in big cities have changed. Public transport is being avoided due to the risk of infection and instead cars are being moved more. In China, an average of 11.34 million barrels of crude oil were imported per day in May 2020. This record value exceeds the previous record from November 2019 by around 160,000 barrels per day.

Good Canadian oil

In a modern society, the origin of crude oil will become increasingly important. In Canada, human rights are respected and the environment is protected. The young Canadian oil producer Saturn Oil & Gas also attaches importance to compliance with ESG guidelines. The company completed the year 2019 profitably and was already able to announce a profit for the first quarter of 2020.

A new management team took the helm in 2017 and realigned the company. Since then, over 30 horizontal wells have been drilled in the Viking Formation in western Saskatchewan. The Company recently announced that it is currently focusing on acquisitions. In March 2020, Jim Payne, CEO of the cleantech company dynaCERT, joined the Board of Directors of Saturn Oil & Gas. Another step towards environmental protection and sustainability. It can be observed that Payne, as an insider, continues to expand his position at Saturn through share purchases. Those who bought the company's shares three years ago are currently looking at a price gain of 36%.

Global player with tradition

The oil producer BP is one of the world's heavyweights and has a market value of EUR 75.7 billion. The company pays dividends to its shareholders and was recently rated as a ''buy'' by the analysts of Goldman Sachs and UBS. However, the share price has fallen by 33% over the past 36 months. The experts' assessment is probably not inconvenient.

Dividend cut after 75 years

At the beginning of 2020, Shell was still pursuing a share buyback programme. However, in connection with the fall in the price of crude oil, the purchase of own shares was suspended in order to preserve the company's liquidity reserves. Shell currently has a market value of EUR 117.9 billion. In the past three years, the shares have lost over 36% of their value. Moreover, the reduction in dividends after 75 years is unlikely to have caused much enthusiasm.

BP, Saturn Oil + Gas, BASF - Fuel for the portfolio: lots of good news!

  • Oil

Opinions on the markets about where the oil price will stand in the short, medium and long term are becoming increasingly diverse. But there is also a lot happening strategically and operationally, which is easily lost in the jumble of information. Last week, British oil giant BP reported that it would reach its planned net debt target much earlier - as early as the first quarter. The highlight: The Group announced that it would again be buying back a large number of shares when it reached its target. How does Moody's rating change fit into the picture with an upgrade for the short-term and a downgrade for the long-term outlook? Below, we will take a closer look at the BP share, BASF's oil and gas shareholding developments and Wintershall Dea and its stock market plans. Also exciting is the opportunity presented by emerging Canadian oil and gas producer Saturn, which could enter a new dimension with a takeover.

Saturn Oil + Gas - BP - BYD: Can hydrogen replace oil?

  • Oil

A pious wish goes again and again through the political decision-making centers of the world. How do we get the planet clean(er)? The Paris Climate Agreement came into force on November 4, 2016, exactly 30 days after 55 countries had already waved through acceptance in their parliaments. In the draft resolutions, 163 states had drawn up their climate protection plans; for the Federal Republic of Germany, this is the Climate Protection Plan 2050 with a long list of politically controversial individual measures. The core element remains the financially neutral CO2 steering levy, and air traffic to and from countries in the European Economic Area is also included. Donald Trump saw it as one of his first acts to say "NO." Now Joe Biden is turning the wheel back in the right direction - we hope!

Gazprom, BP, Saturn Oil + Gas: Which oil stock is the best?

  • Oil

The oil price has long since left the crisis behind. Even though North Sea Brent crude prices have fallen somewhat in recent days, the outlook remains bright. At a time when everyone is talking about renewable energy, market experts emphasize that fossil fuels will continue to play an important role in the world. The energy transition is a process, not an event. Above all, oil producers that act sustainably could continue to score points. We present three stocks.
