Comments from Canada’s top energy analyst, Josef Schachter:

Conclusion: Observations on the Energy sector

As we write this, WTI for October is at US$37.53/b down $0.52 on the day and down sharply from US$41.65/b last Wednesday. This decline of over US$4/b or down by nearly 10% in just one week is due to OPEC excess production and the rise in storage worldwide. The US build data today is the clear evidence of this. Crude prices should continue to decline in September as US consumption normally declines by 1.0-1.5Mb/d as the summer driving season ends. Further pressure is likely to come from OPEC as they raised production by 2.0Mb/d in August. They meet virtually next week, September 17th, and if they don’t reverse their increase in August (or cut it somewhat) then prices are likely to erode further. The psychological level of US$40/b was breached last week and the support at US$38.72/b has also now occurred confirming a top for crude. The next key level for WTI is US$34.36/b. If this is breached then the  sector will face increased pressure. We see most energy stocks have significant downside risk. The most vulnerable companies are energy and energy service companies with high debt loads, high operating costs, declining production, current balance sheet debt maturities of some materiality within the next 12 months and those that produce heavier crude barrels. Results for Q3 and likely Q4/20 for most energy and energy service companies should be short of the prior year’s level which when reported will add to the downside pressure.

Hold cash and remain patient for the next low risk BUY window expected during Q4/20.

The S&P/TSX Energy Index fell nearly 9% to the 72 level today versus 79 last week. From the June high at 96 when we recommended profit taking the index is down by 25%. We see much more downside over the coming months. The support at 74.67 has been breached and the next downside target for the index

The S&P/TSX Energy Index fell nearly 9% to the 72 level today versus 79 last week. From the June high at 96 when we recommended profit taking the index is down by 25%. We see much more downside over the coming months. The support at 74.67 has been breached and the next downside target for the index is the 50 level. Further lows are likely in Q4/20 as tax loss selling could be very nasty this year.
