Petrobras Is Well-Placed To Take Advantage Of Growth In Global Oil Demand

The energy industry has struggled with profitability and the capital cycle for the past fifteen years, with stock valuations trailing the broader market. With the massive exit of capital, due to industry dynamics and pressure from environmental, social and governance investors, the industry is returning to profitability. Petrobras is likely to be a key beneficiary of that return to profitability, given its operational flexibility, investment in exploration and production. Financially, the company is first-in-class, with profitability in excess of its peers. The market has priced it for an 80% decline in profitability, despite broad industry dynamics in its favor.

Petrobras Is A Great Stock But For Later

Petrobras is a great stock on paper combining many favorable investment positives. Unfortunately, its stock price will likely lag its NOC peers over the coming quarters due to political risks until the Brazilian election later this year. I see better risk-reward elsewhere for the time being.

Petrobras Guides Towards 20% Dividends

Petrobras' sustainability has improved significantly over the past 10+ years, an important part of its future business model. In our view, the company has a pessimistic outlook for oil prices, highlighting an ability to return more. The company is expecting to be able to pay annualized dividends of almost 20% over the next 5 years. The company has a captive native market supporting continued strength in its performance. We see the company as a valuable investment given its earnings potential.
