Motor Oil Reports Dip in Revenue; Other Oil Stocks Show Potential
In the first three quarters of 2023, Motor Oil, a relentless player in the business arena, reported a dip in its revenue, standing at 9.97 billion euros compared to the previous year’s 12.66 billion. This downward trend in profitability was expected, following an unusually high revenue recorded in the preceding year. Despite the drop, the group’s profits before taxes remained substantial, amounting to 919.9 million euros, down from 1.27 billion euros. Net profits also saw a reduction, standing at 716.6 million euros compared to the previous year’s 1.007 billion euros.
An Insight into the Company’s Historical Data
Historical data from the Company and Group give a glimpse into the percentage of sales volumes per quarter to the annual total, which ranges between 23% and 28%. This data suggests a lack of significant seasonality in the quarterly sales volumes, providing a steady performance throughout the year.
Other Oil Stocks with Potential
As we delve deeper into the oil industry, three other stocks show potential for good performances in the winter months. Vertex Energy, based in Houston, Texas, specializes in the production of conventional and alternative fuels. Petrobras, a leading performer in emerging markets, has increased its oil and gas production forecast. Despite a significant drop in revenue due to oil price fluctuations, Ecopetrol, a majority state-owned oil and gas company in Colombia, continues to maintain capital efficiency and a high dividend yield.
Predictions for the Oil Market
There are predictions of a dip in oil prices that could impact India significantly. With benign global crude oil prices and the government’s commitment to reviewing fuel prices, there is hope for a price cut. Inflation and the government’s vigilance over the matter also play a crucial role in this scenario.
