Since Saturday, when Joe Biden was declared the 46th President of the United States of America and then on Monday afternoon with BioNTech and Pfizer announcing the positive results of the Corona vaccine tests, we seem to be living in a restored world again, at least in the stock market. The technology stocks that excited during the crisis, which benefited from digitalization and e-commerce, plummeted. By contrast, cyclical stocks from the old economy, which were boring for many, boomed again. Oil stocks also celebrated an astonishing comeback. The trend of regrouping is likely to continue.

Huge step

For the management of the Canadian oil exploration Company, Saturn Oil & Gas, last Friday was both Easter and Christmas. With Jean-Pierre Colin's commitment to join the Canadian oil exploration Company as a senior strategy consultant, the goal of becoming an innovation leader in the oil and gas industry is becoming increasingly apparent.

40 years of concentrated experience

The newcomer has an impressive and almost endless track record. Among other things, Colin has advised several senior politicians in the federal government and Privy Council of Canada, and five acquisitions by Petro-Canada of the country's largest oil and gas companies in the 1980s. Also, the strategist served on the boards of many successful junior commodities companies, including Pelangio Mines Inc. and Virginia Gold Inc., which sold its Eleonor project for more than $1 billion to Goldcorp Inc., now known as Newmont Corporation.

Strong focus on acquisitions

As stated in a press release, Colin commented: "Saturn Oil & Gas represents a unique opportunity to build an oil & gas acquisition vehicle that can provide accretive growth and returns for its shareholders and other key stakeholders." The goal of successfully making acquisitions has long been pursued by the experienced Canadian CEO, John Jeffrey. His maxim is to make acquisitions rather than develop his own drilling programs.

Share close to breakout

For Saturn Oil & Gas It is probably only a matter of time before the first reports of success in terms of financing or new acquisitions are received. At the moment, the paper is struggling with the CAD 0.12 mark. The trading volume has been surprisingly high in the last few days with rising prices. A short squeeze would therefore come as no surprise.

High rating despite a rally

Tesla's Chinese competitor continued to receive a buy rating from analyst firm, Daiwa. The price target was raised significantly from HKD 150 to HKD 250. The reason for the continued bullish mood among experts is the sharply increased profit forecasts for the fourth quarter. The new flagship Company, Han, in particular, is likely to sell like hot cakes. The analysts also expect significant sales in 2021. At the moment there are 40,000 orders for the Han. For the last two months of 2020, being November and December, 10,000 orders for each month are expected for the new flagship.

Better than expected

Although the fuel manufacturer Plug Power disappointed investors and analysts with its loss, the Company was able to impress in terms of sales and outlook. With a loss of USD 0.11, the Company fell short of analysts' forecasts. The analysts bet on a loss of only minus USD 0.07. In contrast, sales were significantly better than expected at USD 125.6 million. The forecast here was only USD 106.5 million.

Outlook and "Green Deal"

Plug Power remains optimistic that it will be able to achieve its medium-term goals. The sales target for 2024 is USD 1.2 billion, followed by an operating profit of around USD 200 million and an adjusted EBITDA margin of over 20%. With the green deal announced by the new US president, these forecasts appear to be quite realistic.

American Water Works, Memiontec, Rio Tinto: Solid Company operating in a booming region

  • Investments

Water is a precious commodity - a fact now remembered since the recent flood disaster in parts of Rhineland-Palatinate and North Rhine-Westphalia. People without access to clean water are more likely to suffer from infectious diseases. What is only an issue here for a few weeks after natural disasters is sadly commonplace in other regions. It is not without reason that access to clean drinking water has long been a human right. Protecting water supplies is also a duty for companies. It is no wonder that investments in clean water can yield good returns.

Microsoft, Daimler, Mineworx Technologies - Market leaders on the rise!

  • Investments

The claim to market leadership can be made by the Company that can demonstrate the largest market share in comparison with the other market participants. The measure of market share is based either on market volume or market sales in units. Some typical attributions are the market leader in Germany, the European market leader or the world market leader in a relevant product sales market. Of course, market leadership is not indisputable, especially from a subjective point of view. A broader focus is needed to determine who sets the tone.
