The Situation Room: IPOs and International Shipping Concerns

The Situation Room: IPOs and International Shipping Concerns

by | published November 4th, 2019

Welcome back to the Situation Room, Oil & Energy Investors.

After a very busy week in London, it’s good to be back stateside. As much as I enjoy the travel and time among my colleagues on the other side of the Atlantic, sometimes what you want most is to return to the familiar.

However, that doesn’t mean that I will be any less busy.

Here are the four major issues that will have my attention this week…

1. The Latest Aramco Announcement

First, I will be evaluating weekend changes in the Saudi Aramco IPO.

On Sunday, Aramco formally announced its intention to place shares on the Tadawul exchange in Riyadh.

Company executives are beginning to court investors, and plan to release a report outlining their financial details sometime this month.

2. Artificial Scarcity

I will also be examining evidence that has emerged via contacts in my network addressing an intentional withdrawal of crude oil from the market to influence price.

Crude oil posted sharp gains on Friday, and as of this writing, WTI and Brent futures continued have continued upward today, gaining $0.36 and $0.49, respectively.
