Oil producers may be facing an exciting turnaround. The experts from Citigroup and Goldman Sachs see the price of oil in 2021 already back at USD 60.00 per barrel or even above. The statements of the analysts are supported by the assumption that the current oversupply will have been reduced by then. The recovery of economies around the globe will bring demand for oil back to pre-corona pandemic levels by the end of 2021.

    Full interview

     

    Normalization is expected

    Citigroup's head of commodities research, Ed Morse, was quite optimistic in an interview with Bloomberg. Global demand for oil will reach pre-corona pandemic levels by December 2021. At the beginning of 2020, the price of WTI still stood at over USD 61.00 per barrel. The experts assume that an annual average price of USD 55.00 will be reached.

    Vaccine gives the starting signal

    Even the experts at Goldman Sachs are more optimistic about the situation on the oil market. They see even more potential for 2022, after USD 60.00 in 2021, and a price level of USD 65.00 is already within the realm of possibility in the third quarter of 2021. Goldman Sachs' analysts have a conclusive explanation for their assessment: "There is a growing likelihood that vaccines will become widely available starting next spring, helping support global growth and oil demand, especially jet."

    Store and wait

    The current price level of crude oil is used by oil traders for storage in supertankers at sea. As long as the economy is running with the handbrake on, the price of black gold will not rise significantly. However, as soon as a vaccine from a renowned manufacturer is available on the market for a broad mass of people, the demand for goods and transportation will increase and possible catch-up effects will be seen.

    Buying instead of making

    In addition to the large oil companies such as BP and Shell, this recovery effect will be particularly noticeable for smaller companies such as Saturn Oil & Gas from Canada. The young producer not only attaches great importance to environmental protection and therefore also brought Jim Payne, CEO of the CleanTech company dynaCERT, on board in March 2020, but is also planning an acquisition, as already announced in a news release. An acquisition in this market environment would have advantages over a drilling program of its own, CEO John Jeffrey already announced.

    Good Canadian crude oil

    Canada has the strictest environmental regulations in the world and protects human rights. For these reasons, the stock is an attractive investment from a moral and return point of view.

    Hypoport, Saturn Oil + Gas, Deutsche Bank - Hard-hitting announcements from analysts

    • Mining
    • Oil
    • Investments
    • Inflation

    Due to uncertainties in the global economy with fears of recession, blown supply chains coupled with rampant inflation, it is becoming increasingly difficult for companies to maintain their forecasts. The latest example is battery maker Varta, which withdrew its full-year estimates altogether due to increased production costs. Analysts reacted with downgrades. In contrast, despite recent corrections, most financial experts are optimistic for the long term, especially for the commodities sector.

    BP, Saturn Oil + Gas, Shell - Oil stocks benefit from the colder season

    There was a lot of news relevant to the oil price in September. Earlier in the month, Gazprom announced it would no longer send gas through Nord Stream 1 due to an oil leak. Shortly thereafter, the G7 countries decided on a price cap for Russian oil to take effect in December. OPEC announced on September 5 that it would cut production. The reason given was fear of an economic slowdown. The EU also decided on various measures to cope with the energy shortage, including a solidarity contribution by companies for fossil fuels to support socially vulnerable households. Even though the oil price has softened somewhat recently due to recession fears, the seasonalities show that the price will likely pick up again in December. Winter is creating additional demand for oil.

    Fuel price explosion: 200% jump in profits for stocks - BP, Saturn Oil + Gas, Shell, BYD

    • Oil
    • Gas

    Energy consumption in Europe is currently declining slightly, partly due to the new savings mentality, especially in Germany, but also to a weighty extent due to a slowdown in economic momentum. In their latest estimates, the German research institutes have also made clear reductions; expectations for 2022 are now only just in the black, and a recession could be on the cards next year. That would not be surprising, as the consumer has to bear inflation rates of an official 7-10%, which cannot be compensated for on the revenue side. The obvious winners so far are the big oil multinationals because they do not have to do anything but sell the oil they produce at a high price. Where are the opportunities for investors?
