Nikola, Saturn Oil & Gas, Exxon Mobil - Caution, risk of explosion!

Stocks can rise for a variety of reasons. As we saw last week, a group of primarily younger investment community members can sometimes shoot up a company's value several hundred percent, as was seen in GameStop. There are of course other reasons that are understandable and justified on a fundamental level. In contrast to the "Reddit shares," the newly achieved price level should be maintained here.

The oil price and the future

It was less than a year ago when a mega crash shook the oil price. After hitting a high of USD 70.27 in January 2020, the black gold fell to a whopping USD 17 by mid-April in the wake of the Corona Crisis and the proclaimed lockdowns. After that, a massive recovery set in. We have not yet reached the pre-crisis levels, but at current prices around USD 56.0, a clear upward trend is discernible. But where do we go from here? According to analysts at JP Morgan, the oil price is in a supercycle that will last until 2025 and bring us prices of up to USD 190 per barrel. Christyan Malek, Head of Oil Research EMEA at JP Morgan, sees the following scenario as the reason: The oil market could turn into a supply deficit in 2021/2022, which would drive the Brent price enormously. This, in turn, would motivate producers to produce more crude oil. The deficit, Malek estimates, could still reach 6.8 million bpd by 2025, and this could cause prices to rise to USD 100 or more.

The primary beneficiary of the supercycle

Should the scenario discussed by JP Morgan come to pass and oil prices more than triple in the next four years, major oil companies such as ExxonMobil, formed in 1999 by the merger of Exxon and Mobil Oil, BP, Shell or Total, will naturally be the first beneficiaries. One Company that still has an advantage over the big players and therefore acts as a lever on further rising oil prices is the share of the oil producer Saturn Oil & Gas. In 2019 the Canadians produced a barrel for a mere USD 12. The competition from the above-mentioned oil giants have production costs of more than USD 30 on average in the balance sheet.

On the home stretch

If it is up to Saturn Oil & Gas CEO John Jeffrey, the costs of around USD 12 per barrel should remain the same. According to the experienced Company leader, this is easier and cheaper to achieve by acquiring competitors than by producing crude oil oneself. The Company already made a start last year on identifying suitable takeover targets and various due diligence reviews are currently underway. An acquisition can be expected to be completed in the next few weeks.

Internally, Saturn Oil & Gas has already positioned itself for a higher level of play. The Company has hired Wendy Woolsey as its new chief financial officer. Woolsey has 25 years of experience in the oil industry. In addition, the renowned manager Jean-Pierre Colin was hired as a strategy consultant for the Mergers & Acquisitions division. Colin made a name for himself primarily by selling his Eleonor project for more than USD 1 billion to Goldcorp Inc, now known as Newmont Corporation, and by various consulting mandates for the Canadian government, among others. For the entrepreneurial fox, Saturn Oil & Gas presents a unique opportunity to build an oil and gas acquisition vehicle that offers inorganic growth opportunities and returns for its shareholders and other key stakeholders. Currently, the stock market value of the Canadian Company is EUR 16.7 million. If the expected acquisition goes through, the Company is likely to face a revaluation.

Reddit and no end

Where will the next short squeeze take place? Investors around the world are looking for the new GameStop. After an eightfold increase, they are trying to find the successors, on the one hand, to make life difficult for hedge funds, and mainly, of course, to be able to pocket horrifying profits. One stock repeatedly mentioned in connection with a short squeeze is the paper of truck builder Nikola. The short ratio is almost 40% at the moment. The share is quoted at USD 23.10. A breakout of the downward trend formed since June last year would occur at just under USD 24. The specialist in the construction of trucks with fuel cell technology had reached a high in 2020 at USD 96.90.

Gazprom, Saturn Oil & Gas, Exxon Mobil: The cards are being reshuffled in the oil sector

  • Energy

The oil price reflects the state of the real economy. After the first Corona lockdowns last spring caused the prices to plummet - ultimately bringing economic activity to a complete standstill - oil has now stabilized significantly. Since the beginning of November, Brent crude has gained around 50%. In the wake of the futures exchanges, the shares of production companies have also performed well. But here, too, there is light and shade - we look at three stocks between dull and highly speculative.

BP, Saturn Oil & Gas, OMV - Sector rotation for investment success in 2021!

Technology stocks were among the darlings of investors in 2020. However, in the meantime, company valuations in this sector have soared to dizzying heights reminiscent of the Neuer Markt boom. Thus, it could be very worthwhile to take a look at the losers of the past year. Oil stocks posted red signs in the face of a 22% drop in the commodity price. But now the situation should change. Leading economic research institutes are forecasting global economic growth of over 4% in the new year. The oil price should also continue to rise, Goldman Sachs even sees upside potential of 30%. We show you which stocks will help you profit.

Saturn Oil & Gas, BP, Royal Dutch Shell: Now the right oil stock!

  • Energy

The stock market is like a pendulum that swings back and forth. The year 2020 was undoubtedly the year of electromobility - just one look at Tesla with its USD 600 billion capitalization is enough - and a year for the "hype topic" hydrogen, which though still needs at least 3 years of research and development for series production. Both are much-discussed alternatives to oil and other fossil fuels. Unfortunately, this comparison is somewhat misleading, as significant amounts of oil and coal are still used to generate both electricity and hydrogen. The drivers of electric vehicles like to pat themselves on the back because of their political compensation. Still, there is now a consensus in the research community that electric propulsion systems on a broad scale can in no way be described as a solution for sustainable economic activity. On the government side, of course, there are great tax incentives that probably reflect the intrinsic motivation of the e-belief community to a huge extent. However, if the battery goes on strike in the winter, fortunately, you still have the V8 in the private garage.
