BP, Saturn Oil & Gas, Shell - why this share is now interesting

  • Oil

The Corona pandemic is still keeping politics and business busy. The restrictions in everyday life are causing many changes for people. An end to the situation is not yet in sight and therefore great hope is being placed in the development of a vaccine against Covid-19. Those who want to position themselves for the time after this phase have excellent opportunities with the oil sector, one of the largest markets in the world.

Good Canadian crude oil

Saturn Oil & Gas from Canada was established around three years ago as the result of a restructuring process and has been focusing on oil production in the province of Saskatchewan ever since. When management took the helm in 2017, the oil price was quoted at around USD 45.00 per barrel. Against this background, the current oil price of around USD 43.00 is not a situation that should cause the company any concern. For this reason, the share price is likely to remain at the level of a year ago.

The Saturn Oil & Gas share is currently attractive for a number of reasons. Firstly, the company operates in a country that prioritizes human rights and environmental protection. Modern society is dependent on oil and for this reason it is particularly important to source the raw material from countries where ESG values are respected. It is also particularly important at Saturn Oil & Gas that the management says it is working on an acquisition. Due to the volatility of the oil market, many competitors are under pressure to move and have to divest assets. CEO John Jeffrey had already announced that he wanted to take advantage of this opportunity.

Human rights at the pump

The oil giant BP can do little at present to counter the disinterest of fund managers and asset managers in the company's shares. The value of the shares has roughly halved in the past 12 months and is currently approaching the low of March 2020 again.

However, companies of this kind have the opportunity to defend themselves against the current situation and lack of interest by offering fuel from different countries or regions, for example. What works for coffee and bananas works even better for crude oil. Imagine if you were allowed to fill up with fuel from the North Sea or Canada and would not unknowingly or against your will obtain oil from countries that do not value human rights. How would you decide?

Choice creates peace

Shell shares were able to recover after the price slide in March 2020, but since their high, they have clearly lost their feathers again. The valuation of the company is once again in a downward spiral. The major investors who could park their assets in the company are lacking important impulses. In addition, there is an overhang on the seller's side, which is why the share is losing value. However, as soon as the pandemic weakens significantly, investors will show more buying interest again.

Shell, with its market power, would also have the opportunity to raise the issue of the origin of oil. In a modern society it is about time that the people at the petrol pump or when paying for oil can decide against oil from despots.


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 long or short positions in the aforementioned companies and that there may therefore be a conflict of interest. Apaton Finance GmbH may have a paid contractual relationship with the company, which is reported on in the context of the Apaton Finance GmbH Internet offer as well as in the social media, on partner sites or in e-mail messages. Further details can be found in our Conflict of Interest & Risk Disclosure.

BP, Saturn Oil & Gas, Shell: Citigroup and Goldman Sachs see oil price at USD 60

  • Oil

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.

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.

BP, Saturn Oil & Gas, Shell - Revenue and profit increase significantly

  • Oil

The oil price continues to gain momentum and is still trading around 40% below the January 2020 level, and now the right stocks are in the spotlight. In addition to the well-known major oil producers such as BP and Shell, there are also successful producers who are not yet so well known, but who certainly have potential. Last night the young Canadian oil producer Saturn Oil & Gas published the results of the past fiscal year. Due to the Corona Pandemic, the company had postponed the release, which is currently nothing special and is officially made possible by an extended deadline.
