Prospera Energy, BP, Plug Power: Fossil or renewable energies - Who leads in the commodity market?

The US is currently holding back on the export of liquefied natural gas shipments, posing a challenging situation for economies like Germany that rely on energy imports. Investors are increasingly turning their attention to companies that are helping to drive forward the energy transition. To reach that goal, oil and gas companies like Prospera Energy, with their ambitious oil extraction plans, are gaining the attention of many investors. For those preferring dividend investments, BP is an unavoidable choice. The global company also mixes its energy production with renewable energy. Plug Power is a pioneer in this field, having recently commissioned another hydrogen plant in Tennessee, USA. However, the excitement about the innovation is dampened by an analyst rating.

With the decision by the oil cartel OPEC+ to further reduce production in the first quarter of next year, oil prices continued their correction that has been ongoing for weeks. Russia and OPEC+ announced their planned cuts at a total of 2.2 million barrels per day. The current decline in the oil sector offers investors an opportunity to participate in the expected long-term upward trend at more favorable prices.

BP, Saturn Oil + Gas, Shell - Gains due to rising oil prices

  • Mining

The price of crude oil rose again last week. While Brent went out of trading on Friday at USD 85.45, the price for WTI stood at USD 81.53 per barrel. This could just be the beginning, as both Saudi Arabia and Russia have cut back production, which has tightened supply. In addition, US oil reserves fell by an unprecedented 17.1 million barrels, the most significant drop ever recorded. Only the downgrade of the US credit rating weighed a little on sentiment. But the risk that this will weigh on the economy seems small. The FED has let it be known that interest rates are not to rise for the time being, inflation is falling, and many company figures are above analysts' expectations. We, therefore, look at three oil producers that benefit from a rising oil price.

BP, Saturn Oil + Gas, Shell - Oil shares against inflationary pressure

The oil price has been rising for about a month. The trigger was the decision of OPEC+ to cut its production by 1 million barrels per day. The demand for oil is increasing in China as the lockdown measures are being eased and the economy is gaining momentum. In addition, US inventories continue to decline. The International Energy Agency (IEA) projects record demand in 2023, with demand rising by 2 million barrels per day year-on-year while supply falls by 400,000 barrels. As a result, oil prices could reignite inflation. Investors who want to protect themselves against this could invest in oil stocks. We, therefore, take a look at 3 oil companies.

BP, Saturn Oil + Gas, Shell - Is a new price cap for Russian oil coming?

The price cap of USD 60 for a barrel of Russian oil has been in place for just over a month. According to high-ranking diplomats from both countries, Poland and Lithuania already want to lower the current maximum price once again. It is not yet clear whether the sanctions will actually have any effect. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Novak said Russia had no export problems despite the sanctions. Positive signals for oil came from the US, as inflation continues to weaken and inflation expectations also fell for the fourth month straight. In addition, according to energy traders, demand from China and Europe is picking up. We, therefore, take a closer look at three oil producers.

Saturn Oil + Gas, BP, First Hydrogen - Potential recognized

The high volatility on the stock markets is likely to continue in the coming year, as the economic and geopolitical situation is too uncertain. This, in turn, offers enormous opportunities to acquire promising stocks at discounted levels that have received little attention from the public. With the ongoing correction in the oil sector, which major analyst firms believe is likely to regain strength in the US in the coming year, there are attractive companies, particularly from the second tier, that should significantly outperform the broader market in the expected upturn.

High volatility characterized the oil markets in 2022, a stock market year that will soon come to an end. While oil prices for West Texas Intermediate, WTI, reached over USD 130 per barrel after the outbreak of the Ukraine conflict, the black gold subsequently corrected by more than 40% due to heightened fears of recession. In the long term, analysts agree that oil prices will likely rise significantly due to increased demand and tight supply.

Halloween of energy prices: Shell, BP, Saturn Oil + Gas, Nel ASA - Is this the peak yet?

It sounds ambitious! To completely transform Europe in terms of energy supply, the European Union would need to invest a good EUR 300 billion in alternative energy sources, infrastructure and raw material supply contracts by 2030. By 2021, Germany alone was importing 45% of its fossil fuel energy from Russia, its valued partner until then. After the invasion of Ukraine, this business partner will likely be taken off the list. But this also means that the very favorable sources for Central Europe will no longer be accessible. So prices for electricity, heating and mobility will remain high. Which stocks can benefit from this scenario?

Buffett loves oil stocks: BP, Shell, Saturn Oil + Gas, K+S

Warren Buffett loves oil stocks. This year, he has invested billions in the industry. Chevron and Occidental Petroleum are among Berkshire Hathaway's seven largest holdings, and together they are even number two in the portfolio after Apple. Buffett likes business models with high cash flows and stable demand. And oil stocks offer both. This also fits with the statement by Goldmann Sachs that despite the high investments in renewable energies, the share of fossil energy has remained stable above 80% in the last 10 years. If you want to do it like investor legend Buffett, you should look at oil stocks such as BP, Shell or the almost ridiculously cheaply valued Canadian newcomer Saturn Oil & Gas. However, the German K+S is also hooked on oil, and the share is trending friendly.

There was a lot of news relevant to the oil price in September. Earlier in the month, Gazprom announced it would no longer send gas through Nord Stream 1 due to an oil leak. Shortly thereafter, the G7 countries decided on a price cap for Russian oil to take effect in December. OPEC announced on September 5 that it would cut production. The reason given was fear of an economic slowdown. The EU also decided on various measures to cope with the energy shortage, including a solidarity contribution by companies for fossil fuels to support socially vulnerable households. Even though the oil price has softened somewhat recently due to recession fears, the seasonalities show that the price will likely pick up again in December. Winter is creating additional demand for oil.
