Companies do not always have good figures in their baggage. Analysts listen very carefully to the words of those in charge. Often, it is only a minor sentence that changes entire valuations. TUI is slowly approaching pre-COVID figures. Saturn Oil & Gas must backtrack slightly because of substantial forest fires in Alberta, and Deutsche Bank aims to finalize the Postbank project in 2023. All three stocks offer good buying opportunities because the long-term prospects are quite convincing.

    TUI - Back on Track

    **After a historic capital increase at the beginning of 2023, the balance sheet was somewhat relieved of debt. Now, the Hanover-based company is looking for new marketing opportunities for its package tours as booking figures are gradually recovering. In terms of revenue, the Company is already back on track to pre-crisis levels, but this is reflected across the board by significantly higher travel prices of up to 40%. Overall, TUI has sold fewer tours, but the price of individual tickets is 27% higher on average.

    "Without the major events such as the forest fires in Rhodes or the floods in Italy, the Company would have exceeded its expectations," said CEO Sebastian Ebel earlier this week. Despite significantly higher living costs, according to data from the travel operator Dertour, many vacationers did not skimp on their summer vacations. It is still mainly a matter of catching up on missed vacations due to COVID. "The positive booking momentum continues, and I am very optimistic for the upcoming winter and summer season," CEO Ebel stated.

    TUI shares landed at a new all-time low of EUR 5.28 in September and were 7% above it again yesterday at EUR 5.68. Chart-wise, the stock should overcome the EUR 6.25 to 6.50 zone soon. While Deutsche Bank is optimistic with a "Buy" rating and EUR 9.80 price target, UBS has left its rating at "Neutral" and a price target of EUR 7.45. The 11 experts on the Refinitiv Eikon platform expect a price of EUR 8.97 in 12 to 24 months, a smooth 60% potential. Overall, TUI is a long-term turnaround speculation, and one should keep an eye on the stop at EUR 5.20.

    Saturn Oil & Gas - Minor adjustments, but good prospects

    The fires in Alberta have also left minor marks on the balance sheet of Canadian oil and gas producer Saturn Oil & Gas (SOIL). In the recently published operating update, average expectations were lowered somewhat due to the fires. At the same time, management reports very successful further developments in the latest Spearfish wells in the Oxbow area. After the short production dip, the expected production rates are being raised again. New forward contracts could also be concluded at significantly higher spot prices. Production expectations for 2023 now average 24,100 BOE (units calculated in barrels of oil); before the fire, 27,170 BOE were expected.

    Broken down to the income statement, Saturn is expected to generate approximately CAD 430 million in adjusted EBITDA in 2023 (down from a previously estimated CAD 523 million). Free cash flow is estimated to be down to CAD 145 million from CAD 232 million, and capital expenditures will be approximately CAD 130 million. A suspension of repayments for September and December has been agreed upon with creditors in order to be able to finance the drilling program from their own funds. Net debt will be phased out at approximately CAD 455 million at year-end.

    "Our light oil drilling program in the Spearfish formation has achieved capital efficiencies that are among the best we have seen across our asset base and has exceeded our internal expectations, confirming the extensive multi-zone development opportunities that our Oxbow asset offers," said Justin Kaufmann, Saturn's Chief Development Officer. In June 2023, Saturn launched the Company's first development program targeting light oil from the prolific Spearfish formation, comprising six horizontal wells in the Manor area of southeast Saskatchewan. Three of the wells were drilled as double horizontal laterals and were among the best producers in the group. Technically proving once again the ability to increase potential recovery without incurring significant drilling costs.

    Saturn Oil & Gas is bringing its average production curve for the following months back up significantly with the currently announced measures and is improving its capital allocation for the year 2024. Although the overall debt is going down at a slightly slower pace, the relative operating yield on each barrel of oil produced is improving. Echelon analysts reacted promptly to the new plan numbers and now expect a 1.4 times enterprise value (EV) relative to discounted free cash flows for 2024 onwards due to the small shift into the future. As such, SOIL shares are still trading well below the peer group valuation factor of 1.9, and the rating remains "Buy" with a price expectation of CAD 5.65. From yesterday's level at about CAD 2.77, it is a good doubling opportunity. **After 2025, the value should be significantly higher because then the debts would be completely paid off.

    Saturn Oil and Deutsche Bank can deliver a positive performance in 2023, while the TUI share is still working on stabilization. The DAX 40 index remains the clear winner, with over 20% growth in the last 12 months. Source: Refinitiv Eikon of 21.09.2023

    Deutsche Bank - The largest IT project in the bank's history slows down Postbank customers

    Deutsche Bank CEO Sewing has to apologize extensively for the IT mess with the Postbank integration. However, it will take some time until all problems are solved. After Postbank customers have been unable to access their accounts for months, the Frankfurt-based bank is working hard to find a solution following a reprimand from the financial supervisory authority BaFin. It is promised that nearly everything will return to normal by the end of October, but until then, patience is required at ATMs, for point-of-sale payments and online transfers. "Overall, to reduce all the backlogs, we need not only the third quarter but also the fourth quarter," said the Group CEO. Some 500 additional IT specialists are now dealing with the problems.

    Complaints from Postbank customers have been mounting in recent months, mainly in connection with a never-ending IT changeover. This involved merging data from 12 million Postbank customers and 7 million Deutsche Bank customers in Germany onto a common platform since Easter 2022. According to its information, the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) is examining whether there are any deficiencies relevant to supervision. It would be possible for BaFin to order a special audit or appoint a special representative, as BaFin President Mark Branson described the conditions as "unacceptable."

    From Sewing's point of view, the banks in Europe should not rest on their recent business successes driven by the turnaround in interest rates. Although there are now billions in surpluses again, structurally, German banks, in particular, are lagging behind their international competitors. As a board member of the banking association, he does not exclude his own institution.

    The experts on the Refinitiv platform see a 12-month average price target of EUR 12.55 for DBK shares, still 25% above the current quotation. With a market capitalization of around EUR 20 billion, Germany's largest commercial bank is valued at only 4.6 times the profit expected in 2024. Buy when the cannons are firing - currently at just under EUR 10.

    Corrections in the figures often lead to surprising price turns. At Saturn Oil & Gas, the current slightly weaker prices following the devastating wildfires in Alberta could represent the last entry opportunity. At TUI and Deutsche Bank, too, the train has probably already left the station.

    Growth Industries in Focus: Investors see potential in Defense Metals, BASF and Volkswagen shares

    • Mining
    • Tungsten
    • RareEarths
    • Electromobility

    Investors are looking for opportunities in growing markets. Looking at industries currently requiring rare earths - such as energy, defense, electromobility, and many more - leads to the mining sector. Someone has to supply the valuable raw materials so these industries can continue growing. Defense Metals' Wicheeda project in Canada shows promising results, particularly the increase to 6.4 million tons with a TREO content of 2.86%. BASF secures EUR 124.3 million in government funding for a green hydrogen plant in Ludwigshafen, planned in collaboration with Siemens Energy. Volkswagen is facing challenges, emphasized by VW board member Thomas Schäfer, who announced tough cuts to maintain competitiveness without closing plants. Volkswagen will have to respond to change with a more agile approach, especially as China advances in electromobility.

    Sell Varta shares? Positive news from JinkoSolar and Manuka Resources

    Is the Varta share price party over again? The shares of the former German battery darling have gained around 30% in value over the past six months. But now analysts are advising to sell. JinkoSolar's management had hoped for more buying when it announced the dividend at the end of September. While this was not the case, shareholders can at least look forward to a payout next week. Manuka Resources is currently managing the balancing act between positive cash flows from the sale of gold and investments in resource expansion. The Company is sitting on another potential "treasure" with a project for battery metals. Is the share undervalued?

    Bets are increasing that the US Federal Reserve may have at least paused to raise interest rates further. This prompted the gold price to reach a six-month high of USD 2,016 per ounce. As with its little brother silver, the signs point to further price rises in the short term. The world's largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, even reached a new high for the year of over USD 38,000. Optimists are already anticipating prices well above the USD 50,000 mark.
