Our Partner Broker’s Analysis and Recommendation

1. Oil sector

PCOR less susceptible to oil price volatility. In mid-2018, crude oil prices were almost at four-year highs (Brent $81/bbl in September), which increased pump prices, tempered sales volumes, and lowered gross margins. We believe the oil price volatility will persist given the concerns over global oil demand and economic growth. Oil prices have been falling since the last quarter of 2018 (Brent at $54/bbl in end-2018), which would boost sales volumes and eventually improve margins.

In early December, OPEC and non-OPEC countries agreed to cut oil supply by 1.2 million barrels per day. This could gradually increase oil prices, with forecasts between $60-$72.6/bbl for Brent in 2019. We note that the volatility in oil prices may persist amid geopolitical risks, including the U.S.-China trade war. We believe PCOR is less susceptible to crude oil price volatility since it utilizes hedging strategies.
