    Omicron displaces worries

    BP's stock is trading briskly on Tradegate today, gaining 1.70% to EUR 4.52, moving well away from the December 2021 low of below EUR 3.80. The European competitor Shell can record a price increase of 1.43% to EUR 21.56 and is also traded briskly. Within one month, the value of the share has risen by over EUR 3.00. The Corona pandemic seems to have lost its fright with the Omicron variant.

    Experts recommend share as a buy

    The share of the Canadian producer Saturn Oil & Gas was able to record a phased price increase of over 30% in the past four weeks. The share increased from a low of EUR 1.99 to a peak of EUR 2.70. Currently, the company's share price is unchanged from the previous day at EUR 2.50. Saturn was able to generate EBITDA of CAD 17.2 million in Q3 2021 with revenues of CAD 48.5 million. The company's market capitalization is around CAD 88 million at the current price of CAD 3.49. The analysts at GBC Research recently gave a price target of CAD 12.17 and the experts at Beacon Securities see the value at CAD 10.15 - both agree on the rating: BUY.

    After the sharp corrections of the last months, the time of suffering of many shareholders of growth companies seems to be over. The companies, which have been badly affected by the stricter monetary policy, are sending clear signs of life, both in terms of charts and fundamentals. Volatility is likely to remain in the coming months. From a long-term perspective, however, there are attractive entry levels at a significantly cheaper level with opportunities for a strong rebound.

    The Federal Network Agency reports this week that German gas reserves will be sufficient for 9 to 10 weeks. According to Adam Riese, this means that without new supplies, a bottleneck would be imminent from mid-February. Gas buyers are still hoping that European partners will support our supplies accordingly. In the winter months, however, they will need a large proportion in their own countries. Therefore, we are entering this winter with question marks, which has now returned with the first snow. In the current environment, some stock movements appear with special movements, for example, the 100% rally of the state-owned company Uniper.

    The calendrical winter is not far away. The German government proclaims that with the measures taken, wintering is possible in Germany. Given the currently 98.5% filled gas storage facilities, the emergency has been overcome. However, experts expect supply bottlenecks by January at the latest and the need to distribute the available gas fairly among its customers. Will BASF then receive its required gas volume and all households 8.7% less - or what will the calculation look like? Difficult - this is where the dilemma facing Central Europe becomes apparent. The loss of Russian energy supplies cannot be remedied in the short term - but in the long term, GreenTech alternatives could create our security of supply. Let us take a look around for suitable investment opportunities.
