Market Update

Fat Prophets says “that’s not a knife”

Angus Geddes, Founder & CEO of Fat Prophets, has been looking for a stockmarket correction for a while now. With a 5% correction so far in September, is that it? Nope. Not even close. Technicals are looking bearish for the S&P500, markets are still priced for perfection, and yields are poised to rise. Even more ominously, US big tech stocks are priced off next to zero interest rates …

Ampol offer a ‘relief’ for Z Energy shareholders

Greg Smith, Head of Research at Fat Prophets runs the ruler over company reports in New Zealand to start the week, including Chorus (CNU) and Freightways (FRE), however, it’s M&A that’s really captured his attention. Ampol (ALD ) has submitted a non-binding indicative proposal to acquire Z Energy (ZEL) for a cash offer price of NZ$3.78 per share. Ampol’s CEO says a successful acquisition would lead to considerable benefits to the New Zealand market by helping to maintain fuel security and support New Zealand industry. Spark Infrastructure (SKI) also has an offer on the table, something Greg says is indicative of a broader wave of M&A on both sides of the Tasman.

Why commodity price trends look like a bowl of spaghetti

David LennoxResource Analyst at Fat Prophets is not fazed by commodity prices trending all over the place. Is there an iron ore price floor at $130/t, quite likely he says, since the bad news has come out all at once, and the US infrastructure bill hasn’t materialised into action yet. David spells out what’s to like about the just-announced merger of Santos (STO) and Oil Search (OSH). He also offers his thoughts on the coal price boom and how EV vehicle demand is driving nickel prices to 2014 highs. Is coal’s price boom about to be the portend to a massive bust? I guess we’ll all find out.

Why Santos is oil you need in the portfolio

It is not surprising we have had a correction, says Jon Mills, Research Analyst from Fat Prophets. The market has been performing so well for so long, says Jon, so this is a healthy move. Fat Prophets is seeing opportunities in the energy space and is bullish on the oil price. Jon believes demand will continue as the global economy continues to re-open from the COVID-19 pandemic. The delta variant slowed things down temporarily, however vaccines are being rolled out rapidly across the globe, he says. One of Jon’s favourite stocks is Santos (STO). He believes Santos’ merger with Oil Search merger will create a more diversified group with exposure to oil, natural gas and energy both in Australia, PNG and Alaska, and is poised to benefit from what Jon believes is a high oil price. Find out why Jon is selling PEXA Group (PEX).
