Successful tests and the imminent prospect of a vaccine against the coronavirus are causing the price of oil to explode. After the low in Brent oil in March at just under USD 18.00, the black gold more than doubled and is currently trading at USD 48.50. Even former pessimists such as the Bank of America see the price continuing to rise and forecast USD 60.00 per barrel by next summer. The easing of restrictions will lead to an increase in oil demand, according to the experts. Anyone who trades with leverage and wants to achieve disproportionate price gains should now look for promising oil producers.

It does not get cheaper

Of course, the giants among the oil producers such as Exxon Mobil, Shell or BP immediately come to mind. It is not well known that these producers have production and production costs averaging more than USD 30.00 per barrel on the clock. The less well-known competitor Saturn Oil & Gas produces a barrel for no less than USD 12.00. This low production cost made the Company the cheapest oil producer in Canada in 2019. With a price target of USD 60.00 per barrel predicted by the Bank of America, the leverage mentioned above would come into play.

Targets set

A clear objective of the CEO of Saturn Oil & Gas, John Jeffrey, is healthy growth, especially inorganic growth. Following the oil crash in the spring of this year, the Canadians have unique opportunities to buy up weakening competitors. According to the management, this is significantly cheaper and more efficient than conducting their own drilling programs. In recent months, takeover candidates have been identified which have a good risk/reward profile. The latest personnel figures suggest that the team is working flat out on an acquisition. A positive surprise at the end of the year may be imminent.

First-class conditions

Jean Pierre Colin, one of the best-known minds in the Canadian natural resources industry, was hired as a senior strategy consultant. According to the top manager, "Saturn Oil & Gas represents a unique opportunity to build an oil and gas acquisition vehicle that can provide accretive growth and returns for its shareholders and other key stakeholders. (...)" Colin himself advised several senior politicians in the Canadian federal government during his career on five acquisitions by Petro-Canada of the country's largest oil and gas companies in the 1980s.

Colin has also served on the boards of many successful natural resource companies, some of which have sold their projects to significant players for more than CAD 1 billion. Saturn Oil & Gas has thus done its homework. In the last few weeks, the share price has been boosted by increased volume and rising prices. The share is currently quoted at CAD 0.12. If a sustained breakout above the CAD 0.15 mark were to be achieved, the way towards a two-year high at CAD 0.30 would be clear.

One billion for the Greens

The incredible sum of one billion USD was collected by hydrogen specialist Plug Power in a capital increase. With the cash already available, the US-Americans' cash reserves now amount to USD 1.7 billion. Management intends to use the money to expand and accelerate its "green hydrogen strategy".

Hydrogen plants under construction

Plug Power recently announced its plans to build five local, environmentally friendly hydrogen plants in the United States. The Company will continue to work with strategic partners, including Apex Clean Energy and Brookfield Renewable, to source cost-effective renewable energy. The combination of low-cost renewable energy, a strong capital position and proprietary electrolyzer and liquefaction technology puts Plug Power in a unique position to build this green hydrogen network.

Figures euphorically expected

Towards the end of the month, JinkoSolar will release its third-quarter figures to the general public. In the run-up to the event, various analyst firms were already hammering out increasingly optimistic forecasts. While the forecasts for earnings per share were still at USD 0.42 a good three months ago, the average of the experts now expects a profit of USD 0.86. The analysts are optimistic about 2021 and 2022. With the Q2 figures, analysts predicted a net profit of USD 0.65 per share but a profit of USD 1.20 per share was ultimately generated, almost 100% above the forecasts.

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

  • Energy

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.

E.ON, RWE, Defense Metals: Energy investments - from boring to speculative

  • Energy

The experts of the investment house Clearbridge Investments report that the world could be facing a phase of economic recovery. Decisive factors for this development could be not only the measures of the central banks but also the investments in infrastructure. As the experts emphasize, investments of USD 100 billion would already create about one million jobs. Moreover, every dollar that is invested will pay off several times over in decades and contribute to growth. In contrast to previous years, not only the classic tech stocks should benefit from this growth, but also traditional sectors such as utilities.
