The Race to Find High-Growth Oil Stocks as Oil Bull Roars (OTC US: VKIN) (NASDAQ: FANG) (NYSEAMERICAN: CEI) (NYSE: MTDR) (NYSE: RRC)

A little over a year ago, the Saudi’s had just declared diplomatic oil policy war on the Russians, who declared it right back, seemingly threatening to divide the new OPEC+ model and ruin what had been the savior for the oil market back in 2016.

With the growth of US and Russian production, OPEC lost control in 2014-15. Then, in early 2016, Russia (and a few other small producers) joined the cartel on a coalition basis, bringing enough production back into the umbrella to control prices again.

One thing is set in stone: OPEC+ came together to support oil prices against US production growth. However, over the past several years, US production growth has started to dwindle, and some might argue now that those most interested in higher oil prices suddenly have unchallenged control at a time when investments in new oil production have gone off a cliff.

You can thank the early days of the pandemic for sealing the fate on that last point.

The result: we are now facing the growing prospects of a boom higher in global oil prices due to insufficient production capacity growth and insufficient redeployment of developed resources through activation of existing wells and rigs. And there’s no regulatory obstacle to major national producers erring on the side of safety and letting oil prices establish a foothold well above current levels.

Saudi Arabia has 298 billion barrels in reserves. They also have to deal with the ever-present prospect of a sovereign debt crisis given the lack of diversification away from the oil market in the Saudi economy and the massive debt held by EU banks. The difference between stable oil at $60/bbl and stable oil at $90/bbl is $8.94 trillion to the Saudi’s.

Banks conduct “redetermination” twice each year to revalue collateral for raw goods debt. Oil producers borrow on terms defined by that process. An extra roughly $9 trillion in collateral value for a country that was only one year ago fighting back rumors of a run on the sovereign bank is a big motivation. That suggests major jumps in production from OPEC+ will be slow in coming over the next year.

The big question for energy traders is this: What happens when the masks come off and everyone decides to drive across the country or fly to distant vacation spots at the same time as we reach herd immunity through widespread vaccinations?

It’s going to be a massive draw on existing oil and gas production capacity.

This whole story paints a powerful picture for the rebirth of small oil and natural gas producers that fall outside of the OPEC+ umbrella, particularly in the US.

Both the price of oil and the spillover demand for new supplies act as a special bull catalyst for companies like Range Resources Corp. (NYSE:RRC), Matador Resources Co (NYSE:MTDR), Viking Energy Group Inc (OTCMKTS:VKIN), and Diamondback Energy Inc (NASDAQ:FANG).

Range Resources Corp. (NYSE:RRC) trumpets itself as a leading U.S. independent natural gas and NGL producer with operations focused on stacked-pay projects in the Appalachian Basin.

The Company is headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas.

Range Resources Corp. (NYSE:RRC) most recently announced its first quarter 2021 financial results, including realizations before index hedges of $3.20 per mcfe, or approximately $0.51 above NYMEX natural gas, pre-hedge NGL realization of $26.35 per barrel, highest since late 2018, and NGL differential of $1.52 per barrel above Mont Belvieu, best in Company history.

Commenting on the quarter, Jeff Ventura, the Company’s CEO said, “Range continues to make progress on key near-term objectives: improving margins with a focus on cost structure, generating free cash flow, enhancing liquidity, and operating safely while maintaining peer-leading capital efficiency. There were sizable improvements in pricing quarter-over-quarter leading to Range’s $193 million in cash flow from operations before changes in working capital. The corresponding capital spending of $105 million generated solid free cash flow for the quarter.

The context for this announcement is a bit of a bid, with shares acting well over the past five days, up about 11% in that timeframe.

Range Resources Corp. (NYSE:RRC) pulled in sales of $513.4M in its last reported quarterly financials, representing top line growth of -12.6%. In addition, the company is battling some balance sheet hurdles, with cash levels struggling to keep up with current liabilities ($458K against $706.8M, respectively).

Matador Resources Co (NYSE:MTDR) is an independent energy company engaged in the exploration, development, production and acquisition of oil and natural gas resources in the United States, with an emphasis on oil and natural gas shale and other unconventional plays.

Its current operations are focused primarily on the oil and liquids-rich portion of the Wolfcamp and Bone Spring plays in the Delaware Basin in Southeast New Mexico and West Texas. Matador also operates in the Eagle Ford shale play in South Texas and the Haynesville shale and Cotton Valley plays in Northwest Louisiana.

Matador Resources Co (NYSE:MTDR) has discussed its plan to increase oil production in 2021 to generate additional cashflow. The company projects this year’s total oil production in the range of 17.2 to 17.8 million barrel, suggesting a 10% year-over-year improvement.

In addition, the company’s focus on capital efficiency should help the bottom line. This year, MTDR projects drilling and completion costs for operated horizontal wells turned to sales to plunge roughly 14% year over year. It is also looking to initiate dividend payments this year, which will help to drive investor interest in a virtuous circle in a rising oil price context.

And the stock has been acting well over recent days, up something like 9% in that time.

Matador Resources Co (NYSE:MTDR) generated sales of $257.6M, according to information released in the company’s most recent quarterly financial report. That adds up to a sequential quarter-over-quarter growth rate of 16.1% on the top line. In addition, the company is battling some balance sheet hurdles, with cash levels struggling to keep up with current liabilities ($91.4M against $290.9M, respectively).

Viking Energy Group Inc (OTCMKTS:VKIN) bills itself as an independent exploration and production company focused on acquiring, enhancing and developing oil and natural gas properties in the Gulf Coast and Mid-Continent regions.

The company has assets in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Kansas. It is also currently the majority-owned subsidiary of Camber Energy Inc (NYSEAMERICAN:CEI), and a merger agreement is in the works that could increase the value of both companies through geographic and operational synergies. The Definitive Agreement has already been signed for the full merger (pending vote and regulatory “ok”) and contemplates a simple one-to-one share exchange, which now appears advantageous to CEI shareholders.

Viking Energy Group Inc (OTCMKTS:VKIN) most recently announced performance metrics, which continued to show tremendous promise. According to its filing, Viking recorded new top marks in topline performance, posting 2020 revenues above $40 million, which is up over 400% from 2018.

James Doris, President and Chief Executive Officer of both Camber and Viking, commented, “We are pleased with Viking’s results given the challenges faced in 2020. In many respects the year was about survival for E&P companies given the unprecedented price environment and market conditions, and not only did we endure thanks to the commitment and perseverance of our entire team we also managed to improve in key areas, including increasing overall revenues and reducing debt at the Viking level. We remain focused on executing on our strategy and forging a path toward profitability.”

Over the past month, shares of the stock have been pulling back into key support, which could offer oil investors an interesting opportunity.

Viking Energy Group Inc (OTCMKTS:VKIN) managed to rope in revenues totaling $8.8M in overall sales during the company’s most recently reported quarterly financial data — a figure that represents a rate of top line growth of 16.9%, as compared to year-ago data in comparable terms, paired with cash levels approaching $8M in the coffers.

Diamondback Energy Inc (NASDAQ:FANG) has been one of the best performing names in the energy space over the past 10 months, ripping over 250% since November.

The company frames itself as Diamondback is an independent oil and natural gas company headquartered in Midland, Texas focused on the acquisition, development, exploration and exploitation of unconventional, onshore oil and natural gas reserves primarily in the Permian Basin in West Texas.

Diamondback Energy Inc (NASDAQ:FANG) recently provided an operational update for the first quarter of 2021 and announced revised full year 2021 guidance, including estimates of Q1 2021 average production of 184.2 MBO/d (307.4 MBOE/d), Q1 2021 average unhedged realized prices of $56.94 per barrel of oil, $22.94 per barrel of natural gas liquids and $3.05 per Mcf of natural gas, resulting in a total equivalent price of $42.36 per BOE, and Q1 2021 average hedged realized prices of $46.81 per barrel of oil, $22.76 per barrel of natural gas liquids and $2.64 per Mcf of natural gas, resulting in a total equivalent price of $35.75 per BOE. Diamondback realized total hedging losses of $102 million in the first quarter, including $80 million of realized gains from the early termination of interest rate swaps.

“Diamondback executed well in the first quarter 2021 and quickly overcame the adversity presented by Winter Storm Uri in February. We closed our two previously announced Guidon and QEP acquisitions in the quarter, and subsequently executed a successful tender offer and refinancing of QEP’s senior notes. This refinancing adds $40 million of annual interest cost savings to the $60 – $80 million of previously announced annual cost synergies expected to be extracted from the QEP transaction,” stated Travis Stice, Chief Executive Officer of Diamondback.

The context for this announcement is a bit of a bid, with shares acting well over the past five days, up about 7% in that timeframe.

Diamondback Energy Inc (NASDAQ:FANG) managed to rope in revenues totaling $769M in overall sales during the company’s most recently reported quarterly financial data — a figure that represents a rate of top line growth of -30.3%, as compared to year-ago data in comparable terms. In addition, the company is battling some balance sheet hurdles, with cash levels struggling to keep up with current liabilities ($108M against $1.2B, respectively).

Revenue

Revenue for Q4 FY2021 was at ₹ 27,874 crore, higher 24% Q-o-Q & 43% Y-o-Y, primarily due to higher volume at Aluminium business, Zinc India, Iron ore business, higher power sales at TSPL and improved commodity prices.

Revenue for FY2021 was at ₹ 86,863 crore, higher 4%, mainly due to higher volume at Zinc India, Aluminium business, Iron ore & Steel business, higher commodity prices & rupee depreciation in FY2021. This was partially offset by lower volumes at Oil & Gas and Skorpion mine being under care and maintenance, lower power sales at TSPL and lower oil prices.

EBITDA and EBITDA Margin

EBITDA for Q4 FY2021 was at ₹ 9,107 crore, higher 18% Q-o-Q & 88% Y-o-Y, primarily due to higher volumes at Zinc India, Aluminium & Iron Ore business and higher commodity & oil prices in Q4 FY2021, partially offset by higher COP at Aluminium and steel business majorly due to input commodity inflation.

EBITDA for the FY2021 was at ₹ 27,341 crore, higher 30%, mainly on account of higher volume at Zinc India, Aluminium & Iron Ore business and structural reduction in COP at Aluminium business. This was partially offset by lower oil prices and lower volumes at Oil & Gas business. 

We had a robust EBITDA margin1 of 36% for the year (FY 2020: 29%)

Depreciation & Amortization

Depreciation & amortisation for Q4 FY2021 was at ₹ 2,054 crore, higher 7% Q-o-Q, primarily due to higher volume & projects capitalization at Zinc India and capitalization of pots in Aluminium business.

Depreciation & amortisation for Q4 FY2021 was lower by 9% Y-o-Y, primarily on account of lower charge at Oil & Gas business due to impairment of assets in Q4 FY2020, lower charge at Zinc International due to Skorpion mines under care and maintenance, partially offset by higher depreciation charge at Zinc India on account of higher ore production and additional capitalisation.

Depreciation & amortisation for FY2021 was at ₹ 7,638 crore, lower 16%, primarily on account of lower charge at Oil & Gas business due to impairment of assets in Q4 FY2020, lower charge at Zinc International due to Skorpion mines under care and maintenance, partially offset by higher depreciation charge at Zinc India on account of higher ore production and additional capitalisation.

Finance Cost and Investment Income

Finance cost for Q4 FY2021 was at ₹ 1,325 crore, flat Q-o-Q, higher interest cost due to lower interest capitalisation offset by repayment of borrowings.

Finance cost for Q4 FY2021 higher 24% Y-o-Y, primarily due to lower interest capitalisation.

Finance cost for FY2021 was at ₹ 5,210 crore, higher 5%, primarily due to lower interest capitalisation.

Investment Income for Q4 FY2021 was at ₹ 860 crore, higher 12% Q-o-Q & 41% Y-o-Y, primarily due to increase in interest income with a change in mix of investments.

Investment Income for FY2021 was at ₹ 3,269 crore, higher 34%, primarily due to increase in interest income with a change in mix of investments partially offset by lower investment corpus.

Exceptional Items

Exceptional items for Q4 FY2021 was at ₹ 773 crore, primarily due to provision in Steel business for obtaining environmental clearance, provision against advances, settlement of structured investments and CWIP impairment in Aluminium.

Exceptional items during FY2021 were ₹ 678 crore which pertains to provision in Steel business for obtaining environmental clearance, provision against advances, settlement of structured investments and CWIP impairment partly offset by RPO liability reversal in Aluminium.

Taxes

Tax credit for Q4 FY2021 stood at ₹ 1,886 crore (Q3 FY2021: Tax charge of ₹ 1,186 crore). The normalized ETR is 28% (excluding tax on exceptional items and deferred tax asset of ₹ 3,111 crore recognized on carry forward losses in ESL) compared to 27% in Q3. The normalized ETR for Q4 FY2020 was 49%.

The normalized ETR for FY2021 is 27% (excluding tax on exceptional items, tax on intra group dividend and deferred tax asset of ₹ 3,111 crore recognized on carry forward losses in ESL) compared to 34% in FY2020 which is primarily on account of change in profit mix and adoption of new tax regime in one of the major subsidiaries.

Attributable Profit after Tax (PAT) before exceptional items for the quarter was at ₹ 7,013 crore

For FY2021, Attributable Profit after Tax (PAT) before exceptional items was at ₹ 12,151 crore.

Gross debt was at ₹ 57,028 crore on 31st March 2021, decreased by ₹ 2,159 crore Y-o-Y. This was mainly due to repayment of debt at Aluminum and Zinc Business.

Net debt was at ₹ 24,414 crore on 31st March 2021, higher by ₹ 2,988 crore Y-o-Y, primarily driven by dividend payment during the year and inter-company loan (ICL) to VRL, partially offset by strong cash flow from operations post capex.

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” – that is, statements related to future, not past, events. In this context, forward-looking statements often address our expected future business and financial performance, and often contain words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “seeks,” “should” or “will.” Forward–looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain. For us, uncertainties arise from the behaviour of financial and metals markets including the London Metal Exchange, fluctuations in interest and or exchange rates and metal prices; from future integration of acquired businesses; and from numerous other matters of national, regional and global scale, including those of a political, economic, business, competitive or regulatory nature. These uncertainties may cause our actual future results to be materially different that those expressed in our forward-looking statements. We do not undertake to update our forward-looking statements.

bp And CEMEX Team Up On Net-Zero Emissions

Avatar

Published

on

The two companies have agreed to a memorandum of understanding to develop solutions to decarbonize the cement production process and transportation. These potential solutions may include low-carbon power, low-carbon transport, energy efficiency, natural carbon offsets, and carbon capture utilization and storage technologies. Additionally, they intend to work together to develop urbanization solutions envisioned to decarbonize cities.

“Concrete plays an integral role in society, and there are no substitutes for its key attributes, strength, and resilience. We believe it will continue to have a critical role in a low carbon economy, and the challenge for the industry is to find solutions to the manufacturing process emissions,” said Juan Romero, Executive Vice President Sustainability, Commercial, and Operations Development of CEMEX. “This initiative with bp is another example of the work we are doing with partners across industries, academia, and startups to tap into the latest innovation and disruptive technology to achieve our ambition of delivering net-zero CO2 concrete globally to all of our customers.”

William Lin, bp’s executive vice president, regions, cities & solutions (RC&S), said: “At bp, we want to help ‘greening companies’ meet their sustainability aims just as we are trying to do in our own company. We know that 70 percent of global emissions come from transport, industry and energy and that cement making is energy intensive. Teaming up with progressive companies like CEMEX, that share a net-zero ambition and have complementary capabilities, will help speed up the decarbonization of the industry and the energy system. Now is the time to work together on the path to net-zero and along the way generate mutual value.”

Helping cities and corporations to decarbonize is a core part of bp’s long-term strategy. The RC&S team aims to build enduring relationships ‎with cities and corporations around the world to offer bespoke, integrated and decarbonized energy solutions to complex energy needs – providing energy that is clean, reliable – and also affordable. And to decarbonize high-tech, consumer products, heavy transport, and heavy industry sectors – working with companies that currently have significant carbon emissions to manage and share bp’s net zero ambition.

Angélica Ruiz, bp’s head of country for Mexico and senior vice president for Latin America, said: “We’re proud to collaborate with a global company that shares our goal to transition to a more sustainable future. CEMEX is taking a leading role in decarbonizing the global cement industry, setting a fast pace of progress in all regions, including Mexico and Latin America. Our collaboration with CEMEX is another step towards our ambition to be a net-zero company by 2050 or sooner and help the world to get to net-zero.”

About bp
bp’s purpose is to reimagine energy for people and our planet. It has set out an ambition to be a net zero company by 2050, or sooner and help the world get to net zero, and a strategy for delivering on that ambition. Partnering with countries, cities and corporations to provide innovative energy, mobility and decarbonization solutions as they shape their paths to net zero is a core part of this strategy.

CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The Board of Directors of Nucor Corporation (NYSE: NUE) today approved the repurchase of up to $3.00 billion of the Company’s outstanding common stock. This new authorization replaces the previously authorized $2.00 billion repurchase program (which was terminated by the Board of Directors in connection with the approval of the new authorization), under which approximately $1.55 billion of the Company’s common stock had been repurchased since its authorization in 2018. The Company expects share repurchases will be made from time to time in the open market at prevailing market prices or through private transactions or block trades. The timing and amount of repurchases will depend on market conditions, share price, applicable legal requirements and other factors. The new share repurchase authorization is discretionary and has no expiration date.

Forward-Looking Statements
Certain statements contained in this news release are “forward-looking statements” that involve risks and uncertainties. The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “expect,” “project,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “could” and similar expressions are intended to identify those forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements reflect the Company’s best judgment based on current information, and although we base these statements on circumstances that we believe to be reasonable when made, there can be no assurance that future events will not affect the accuracy of such forward-looking information. As such, the forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, and actual results may vary materially from the projected results and expectations discussed in this news release. Factors that might cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: (1) competitive pressure on sales and pricing, including pressure from imports and substitute materials; (2) U.S. and foreign trade policies affecting steel imports or exports; (3) the sensitivity of the results of our operations to prevailing market steel prices and changes in the supply and cost of raw materials, including pig iron, iron ore and scrap steel; (4) the availability and cost of electricity and natural gas, which could negatively affect our cost of steel production or result in a delay or cancellation of existing or future drilling within our natural gas drilling programs; (5) critical equipment failures and business interruptions; (6) market demand for steel products, which, in the case of many of our products, is driven by the level of nonresidential construction activity in the United States; (7) impairment in the recorded value of inventory, equity investments, fixed assets, goodwill or other long-lived assets; (8) uncertainties surrounding the global economy, including excess world capacity for steel production; (9) fluctuations in currency conversion rates; (10) significant changes in laws or government regulations affecting environmental compliance, including legislation and regulations that result in greater regulation of greenhouse gas emissions that could increase our energy costs, capital expenditures and operating costs or cause one or more of our permits to be revoked or make it more difficult to obtain permit modifications; (11) the cyclical nature of the steel industry; (12) capital investments and their impact on our performance; (13) our safety performance; and (14) the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. These and other factors are discussed in Nucor’s regulatory filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including those in “Item 1A. Risk Factors” of Nucor’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020. The forward-looking statements contained in this news release speak only as of this date, and Nucor does not assume any obligation to update them, except as may be required by applicable law.
