FuelCell Energy, Saturn Oil + Gas, Gazprom - The Renaissance of fossil fuels

There is no question that Germany has already achieved a great deal in terms of climate protection. In 2020, about 45% of its electricity came from renewable sources. However, the goal of becoming greenhouse gas neutral by 2045 is still a long way off. For this plan to become a reality, wind power still needs to be expanded significantly. The first half of the current year shows that it will not be possible to do without fossil fuels in the coming years. According to calculations by the Federal Statistical Office, over 56% of the total 258.9 billion kWh of electricity generated in Germany came from conventional sources such as coal, natural gas and nuclear energy.

Saturn Oil & Gas - Profiteer from scarce supply

All the world should be green, and climate change accelerated. For this reason, in addition to climate activists, politicians are putting pressure on major oil companies to curb their production due to environmental, social and governance concerns. This is certain to lead to a significant supply shortage in the coming years. In contrast, the growing world population is creating an increasing demand for raw materials for energy production. Since the infrastructure of renewable energies is far from being developed and the capacities for supply by water, wind, or sun are not sufficient, the global economy will have to rely on oil for a long time to come.

This fact will play into the cards of the still existing oil producers. High demand and scarce supply promise high margins and substantial profits. The beneficiary of this scenario is the Canadian oil producer Saturn Oil & Gas, which, unlike the big oil giants, has not retreated but taken the path forward through a major acquisition. With the acquisition of light oil deposits in the Oxbow area in southeastern Saskatchewan, Saturn Oil & Gas advanced at a stroke to become one of the largest oil producers in North America. The production volume alone has now increased twenty-fold to 7,000 barrels per day. That translates into a free cash flow of CAD 265,000 for the up-and-coming company per day.

The deal cost CAD 93 million in a combination of debt and equity capital. By selling large tranches of production for the next four years, the repayment of the debt burden by the end of 2023 is already secured. Moreover, Saturn Oil & Gas has the potential to generate further cash flow through the optimization and completion of over 550 existing wells.

Although the calculation is relatively simple, the good news presented on the occasion of the Q2 figures is not yet fully appreciated by market participants. After all, if one only calculates the secured cash flow of around CAD 80 million for the full year, the current price of CAD 0.17 results in a 2022 price-earnings ratio of ONE. Compared to the industry, investors are paying valuations with a factor of 5 to 10, so there is still an opportunity for interested investors to participate in the continued upward trend of the oil market.

FuelCell Energy - Explosion after figures

The fuel cell company from Danbury, Connecticut, posted a gain of over 27% at times. The reasons were solid figures for the third quarter, which even eclipsed analysts' estimates. In addition, FuelCell Energy reaffirmed its outlook. Revenue increased 43% year-on-year to USD 26.82 million, and net loss narrowed to USD 11.99 million from USD 15.33 million in the same period last year.

The targets of doubling the power generation portfolio and double-digit revenue growth compared to 2019 revenues of USD 60.8 million remain in place. Subsequently, the share price gains could not be maintained. Investors should wait for the price to calm down. In the area around USD 5.70, the paper becomes interesting.

Gazprom - It is on

The long-awaited and criticized Nord Stream 2 pipeline has been completed, and oil and gas prices are rising. Reason enough for the share price of the Russian state-owned company to climb to a new multi-year high and thus generate a new buy signal. It is now essential that the title does not fall below the renewed support. Interested investors should wait until the overbought situation has eased. In the long term, the title is more than interesting.

Climate change is underway, but there is still a long way to go before we have the renewable energy capacity to abandon fossil fuels entirely. Saturn Oil & Gas became one of the largest oil producers in North America through the acquisition made in May and is currently cheap compared to industry peers with a P/E ratio of 1. FuelCell Energy and Gazprom are promising long-term investments.

BYD, Saturn Oil + Gas, Royal Dutch Shell - Explosion on the oil market

  • Oil

The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries OPEC and its alliance partners led by Russia (OPEC+) have decided to increase production only gradually, despite tight supply. Demand is recovering strongly as the Delta variant of the coronavirus subsides. The result is skyrocketing oil prices, which are the highest they have been in seven years. In contrast, oil producer shares are still far from their highs.

Nel, JinkoSolar, Saturn Oil + Gas: It looks good!

  • Oil

Shares from the solar, hydrogen and oil sectors are in demand again. And the chances are good that it will continue. The federal elections are creating a good mood for solar and hydrogen; whether it is a traffic light or Jamaica, the new government will be greener. So good news for Nel and JinkoSolar. Both have also reported positive news. But oil stocks could also be in for a hot fall. That is because little work is being done on new projects, and demand will remain high for decades to come. So oil could become scarce despite the trend toward clean energy, according to one expert. Saturn Oil & Gas should benefit from this. The Canadians just bought huge oil reserves at a bargain price.

BP, Saturn Oil + Gas, Gazprom: Where growth meets low valuations

  • Oil

The climate turnaround is coming, but it will not happen overnight. One raw material that will be needed for a long time to come is oil. OPEC recently increased its demand forecast for 2022 by 4.2 million barrels - every day. The oil companies, which are currently valued low on the stock market, will therefore continue to earn good money for a long time to come. But here, too, the companies with the edge are those that are flexible and have a sustainable focus. We present three stocks.
