Deutsche Rohstoff, Fuchs Petrolub, Saudi Aramco - and another successful player is emerging

  • Oil

With the IPO of Saudi Aramco, the topic of oil investments is once again moving into the focus of the media. People around the globe currently consume around 100 million barrels (159 liters) of crude oil per day for their usual prosperity. The crude oil is processed in a variety of ways and then used for various purposes. Apart from all environmental discussions, the production of crude oil provides a necessary foundation for a modern society. OPEC expects the daily demand for crude oil to rise to more than 110 million barrels by 2040, partly because energy demand is expected to rise by 25% over the same period.

Will the price of crude oil rise?

Without the support of the capital market, sooner than later the supply diversity of crude oil producers will inevitably decline. The consequences would be an increasing oil price and more profits for the producers. So it's worth taking a close look at the industry and seeking for stocks with high growth rates.

Successful placement of a bond

In recent years, Deutsche Rohstoff AG has grown into an oil company. The German parent company has several subsidiaries and participations in the USA. Only recently, the company was able to place a new 5.25% bond with a maturity of 2024. The issue volume reached EUR 87.1 million, of which EUR 33.3 million was exchanged by creditors of a previous bond. With the fresh EUR 53.8 million, the company can drive forward its operational development.

Stagnation at a high level

Fuchs Petrolub SE is another German company that deals with crude oil and its products. The company had more than 5,600 employees at the end of the first nine months of 2019 and, as in the previous year, generated more than EUR 1.95 billion, leaving a net profit of EUR 176 million. What growth opportunities Saudi Aramco can offer investors is open and depends largely on the oil price. A corporation that is relevant to the financing of the state budget has its own rules.

Advertising for the Riyadh Stock Exchange

In the course of Saudi Aramco's IPO, more than USD 25 billion were flushed into the company's bank account. 1.5% of the company is now tradable on the Riyadh stock exchange. The market value of Saudi Aramco is more than USD 1.8 trillion. With the company making over USD 68 billion in profits in the first nine months of this year, it is clear that this is more of a marketing than an economic necessity.

Growth companies with potential

If you want more growth and price potential, you should take a look at the business development of Saturn Oil & Gas Inc. The company was taken over by a new management team about three years ago and has been a success story ever since. CEO John Jeffrey manages the company, which is majority owned by German investors and for this reason it is not surprising that the German research house GBC AG has started the coverage of Saturn Oil & Gas.

The analysts' 'buy' recommendation gives the company's share more than 100% price potential over the next 12 months. The shares currently trade at CAD 0.13 and the GBC experts initially see potential of up to CAD 0.31 per share. In the first nine months of this year, the company generated CAD 13.8 million in revenues, an increase of CAD 10.8 million or 352% over the same period last year. The bottom line was a net profit of CAD 2.3 million, which corresponds to a profit margin of almost 17%. Those who are in no doubt that oil will also be needed in five or ten years should consider this asset class.


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 shares in the aforementioned companies and that there may therefore be a conflict of interest.

BP, Royal Dutch Shell, Saturn Oil & Gas - now positioning for the oil rally

  • Oil

Russia and Saudi Arabia are in the middle of an oil war. This was preceded by negotiations on a joint reduction in production volumes in order to ensure price stability in connection with the Corona Crisis and the accompanying decline in demand. Russia has belonged to OPEC+ for three years in an extended circle. This has now come to an end, as no consensus decision has been reached. Saudi Arabia reacted with disgruntlement and has announced that it will increase its production volume. The oil price level now reached of less than USD 25 per barrel for WTI not only makes the US energy economy unprofitable, but also endangers the energy independence of the largest oil consumer. There is therefore enormous pressure to act.

Baytex Energy, Husky Energy, Saturn Oil & Gas - why Canadian oil now?

  • Oil

The oil industry around the globe had an unexpected start to the week, marked by a collapse in the price of oil. Last Friday, WTI was still trading at over USD 41.00 per barrel and at the start of the week the price fell briefly to below USD 28.00 per barrel. This was preceded by the announcement that Saudi Arabia will increase its production volume because Russia will not participate in a joint cutback. The defiant reaction of Saudi Arabia sent the oil price and the stock markets around the globe into a downward spiral.

Saturn Oil & Gas, TORC Oil & Gas, Whitecap Resources - it's time for harmless oil!

  • Oil

In recent years, there has been a growing trend in modern society that food must originate from the region and a declaration as 'organic' is now considered mandatory. Coffee beans from distant countries should definitely carry the label 'Fairtrade' and blood diamonds are rightly considered frowned upon. Consumers have changed the supply with their purchasing and market power. When will the oil market change?
