GeoPark (GRPK US)C; Target price US$20: Cash tax reduction and high impact drilling– The only item of interest in the 2Q20 financials was the fact that GeoPark did not pay any cash tax in 2Q20 (we were carrying a payment of US$40 mm). This explains why the cash balance at the end of June was so much higher than we expected at the time of the 2Q20 operating update in July). This also reflects important positive changes in Colombia. First, US$20-25 mm cash taxes in 2020 have been deferred to 2021 leaving only US$15-20 mm due in 2H20. In addition, Colombia is accelerating the reimbursement of income tax credits. GeoPark has already collected US$15 mm in July that will offset the remaining 2H20 cash tax. Overall in 2020, the company could potentially obtain a total refund of US$25 mm of income tax (out of which US$15 mm is firm and collected in July) plus US$15-20 mm of VAT. The key wells to focus on in 2H20 will be the 1-2 wells to be drilled at CPO-5 (GeoPark WI: 30%). While these wells are expected to increase production, they will also allow the company to start derisking the exploration upside associated with the block. The first well will be a development/appraisal well in Indico where the oil water contact has not been encountered yet. The second well is an exploration well at Aguila targeting the same play concept. The share price continues to trade at ~45% discount to our Core NAV of ~US$19 per share. Overall there could be 350-700 mmboe gross prospective resources across its Llanos blocks (including CPO-5). Our target price of US$20 per share reflects our ReNAV and attributes only ~US$1 per share to exploration. It represents over 100% upside to the current levels.

The stock is up 6% at pixel time, which shows rather good prowess from management, as it also cut (for good) the dividend in half. As investors swallow the bitter pill, the low-carbon shift (and promises of higher valuations) make it easier to digest. Also helping was a decent cash generation in this quarter, thanks to BP’s trading unit.

PetroTal (PTAL LN)C; Target price £0.45: Production at Bretana restarts – In anticipation of the re-opening of the ONP, Bretana oil production recommenced on July 15, 2020 and achieved over 12,000 bbl/d when all seven wells were online. Oil deliveries have also already commenced to the Iquitos refinery and approximately 40,000 bbl are expected be delivered during July 2020. Oil is being barged to the Saramuro Pump Station and will be delivered into the ONP immediately after it reopens , now expected in early August 2020. To manage the company’s inventory and barge storage capacity, Bretana production has been reduced to approximately 8,000 bbl/d pending the restart of the pipeline. While the share price has already increased 30% over the last three weeks, we continue to see PetroTal as a value and growth stock. The company’s value based on its 2P reserves only (2P NAV of £0.28 per share) represents 2x the current share price and our Core NAV is 3x current levels. Assuming production of ~12 mbbl/d in 2021 (i.e. the level achieved when the field was restarted) PetroTal’s share price implies EV/DACF multiples of 1.7x in 2021 and 0.2x in 2022. On a production/capex low case, we estimate that PetroTal generates aggregate Free Cash Flow over 2021-2022 equal to the company’s market cap.

U.S. futures and European stocks dropped on Friday as investors mulled a reported conflict among policy makers over a stimulus package for the single-currency region, as well as political upheaval in France.
The Stoxx 600 Index fell after Bloomberg News reported the European Central Bank is facing a potential rift over how much their emergency bond-purchase program should stay weighted toward weaker countries such as Italy. The euro fluctuated following French President Emmanuel Macron's decision to name a new prime minister after asking his government to resign. Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc slumped after the British jet-engine maker said its exploring options to raise funds to strengthen its balance sheet.
The dollar was slightly down, posting its first weekly drop in a month, while American cash equity and bond markets were shut for Independence Day. President Donald Trump will attend an early July 4 celebration at Mount Rushmore with thousands of guests who won't be required to wear masks, while his U.K. counterpart Boris Johnson urged Britons to act responsibly as pubs prepare to re-open and the government lifts quarantine rules on travel for 60 countries.
The friction at the ECB highlights the risk to markets should promised stimulus measures fall short. Investors continue to weigh policy support and upbeat economic data against relentless new outbreaks of the virus. U.S payrolls figures Thursday fuelled optimism of a V-shaped recovery in the world's biggest economy, even as Florida reported that infections and hospitalizations jumped the most yet, and Houston had a surge in intensive-care patients. Emerging-market stocks posted the biggest weekly gain in a month.
Elsewhere, crude oil dipped but remained on track for a weekly gain.

Considering the environment, this sale is positive and marks the completion of the $15bn divestment programme started after the acquisition of the shale assets from BHP in 2018. Overall, BP’s strategy in downstream is to bring stable earnings, to offset volatility in upstream. In this regard, expanding renewables activities would seem appropriate to BP. While, BP has no competitive advantage in this field, exposure to renewables will allow the oil majors to keep their oil & gas activities.

Management wanted to make a point that it was not BP’s first rodeo. Essentially, the company is cutting expenses wherever it can and has around $32bn of liquidity, by securing credit lines and issuing debt. This still does not guarantee the full dividend in 2020, as the elevated gearing and delayed proceeds of the Alaska business dampen the company’s flexibility. We reckon green shoots in Q2 are needed to get the board’s approval next time.

Oil clinched the best weekly gain for the year on signs the worst economic impacts of the lethal viral outbreak have been accounted for, easing concern about free-falling demand for crude.
Futures advanced 1.2% in New York on Friday, settling above $52 for the first time this month. Investor confidence was lifted after China reassured the international community that a huge spike in new coronavirus cases was a one-off event. The optimism outweighed Goldman Sachs Group Inc. slashing its 2020 crude-demand growth forecast almost in half and lowering its first-quarter oil-price estimate by 16%.
The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies have signalled a desire to stabilize the oil market that has tumbled almost 15% this year as the coronavirus wreaked havoc on the world's second-largest economy and beyond.
The past two weeks have been rife with uncertainty for oil markets as Riyadh's push for an early meeting in February and fresh production cuts face an impasse with Russia.
OPEC and its allies were close to abandoning any plans for an emergency meeting though Saudi Arabia had not given up on the proposal outright, several delegates from the group said on Friday. The outbreak has intensified concerns about crude demand, prompting technical experts from the coalition to propose deepening the current supply cuts by 600,000 barrels a day to relieve excess inventories.
Chinese independent refiners have seized on the recent slump in oil prices to bulk up on cheap cargoes in a sign that they may be positioning for an eventual rebound in demand.
West Texas Intermediate crude for March delivery gained 63 cents to settle at $52.05 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Brent for April settlement rose 1.7% to settle at $57.32 on the ICE Futures Europe exchange.
The structure of the Brent futures market also flipped into a backwardation, signalling that some of the oversupply may have eased.
Meanwhile, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia will resume oil production from their shared fields this month, more than five years after a dispute halted supply. The projects will bring additional production capacity to an oil market that's already dealing with excess supply.

Good release with above consensus earnings and a 2.5% dividend increase. The latter is the most surprising, considering last quarter’s cautious comment, giving the priority to deleveraging (and triggering a subsequent sell-off). It seems that the group has de-risked enough factors for 2020 to afford a slower deleveraging should the macro environment deteriorate further.

The results show positive contributions from Rosneft and all Downstream divisions, partly offsetting the Upstream division, which was down on lower prices and lower production. The release has been toned down by management, indicating that a dividend hike will not be likely in Q4 as the focus is on deleveraging. This is not surprising, in our view, since H2 had little room for improvement with the buy-back planned and we do not see this as a departure from the progressive dividend policy.

In the midst of another attempted takeover by stealth, Petropavlovsk PLC (LSE: POG) announced their trading results for H1 2020 which leaves them on track to deliver one of their best years ever, operationally and financially, with more to come in 2021. This is down to the perseverance, skillset and hard work of the workforce out in the Amur Region and their CEO Dr Pavel Maslovskiy, who has staked his reputation on the successful build out of the POX plant. Any corporate raider (and shareholder alike) should realise, whether it be Vekselberg or UGC, that without the support of Dr Maslovskiy you won’t win the hearts and minds of the workforce essential for the smooth running of the organisation. Meanwhile, the gold price has run through $1,900/oz; clearly a positive for this leveraged business. Incorporating this and the results into our modelling delivers a new Target Price of 50p and the set of financials shown in the right-hand column.

Jubilee Metals successfully processes chrome tailings in South Africa to produce chrome concentrate and PGMS. It also owns the commissioned Sable copper refinery at Kabwe in Zambia and is looking to build a zinc-lead treatment plant at Kabwe next to the Sable refinery to process old tailings from the Kabwe mine. Today Jubilee announces that it has secured access rights to process 2Mt of Run-Of-Mine material grading in excess of 2% copper in Zambia with the potential to add a further 2.5Mt of tailings – Project “Roan”; an as yet an undisclosed project location in Zambia. This material will be upgraded at the “Roan” site with the concentrate shipped off to Jubilee's Sable Refinery to produce copper cathode. Initial target is set at 10kt contained copper/yr from Roan, and Jubilee hopes to begin production in 4 months' time with full production reached in 8 months – advanced preparations have been made, plans drawn up and discussion with equipment manufacturers already accomplished – Jubilee is ready to hit the ground running.

Hargreaves’ FY20 results are very solid indeed. As previously reported, the only noticeable impact from COVID was in the slippage of Blindwells’ land sales, which were due to conclude during the lockdown period. Site activity has resumed and sales remain on track to conclude in the current year. A final dividend of 4.5p has been declared and the outlook statement is measured but confident. We reintroduce forecasts today, effectively reinstating our pre-COVID expectations. Hargreaves is well positioned to deliver a period of significant, renewed growth with the prospect of a double digit dividend yield from FY22 as HRMS profits are distributed.

United has announced that it has successfully negotiated an 18 month extension to its Walton Morant licence, offshore Jamaica, in what could be a pivotal moment for the Company. United will assume a 100% working interest, and will complete a work programme to further de-risk the high-graded Colibri prospect ahead of a drill-or-drop decision in 2022. We view the award of the Walton Morant licence as a huge endorsement of the United team and its capabilities to operate a frontier, deepwater licence. We increase our risked valuation of the Colibri prospect to US$68.3m or 7.1p per share and our Company valuation to US$162.2m or 17p per share. Unrisked, our valuation of the Colibri prospect increases to US$752.7m or 78.7p, underlining its potential. We set our price target in line with our risked NAV at 17p, a 507% premium to the current share price, and reiterate our BUY recommendation.

Salt Lake Potash has received commitments to raise A$15m through the placement of unsecured zero-coupon Convertible Notes to Equatorial Resources (ASX:EQX) and institutional investors. The Convertible Notes have been structured as deferred equity with zero coupon and mandatory conversion into equity at the lower of 45c/share or a 5% discount to any future equity raising of at least A$10m. These funds will enable Salt Lake Potash to continue to develop Lake Way to the project schedule through July as they finalise debt financing. Plant practical completion and first SOP sales remain on schedule for the March 2021 quarter. The debt financing process in its final stages and with an agreement expected to be executed within weeks.

Rio delivered a decent set of H1 results, especially considering the COVID-19 disruption. Once more, Iron ore single-handedly came to the group’s rescue and (largely) compensated for varying issues in other divisions, thereby facilitating $2.5bn of dividends. While we don’t expect a magical near-term turnaround in the troubled divisions, iron ore’s sustained resilience should provide healthy comfort – also from a dividend perspective. Hence, Rio remains our preferred diversified mining bet.

This deal is with South Africa’s largest ferro chrome smelter and shows that the company’s technology is gaining acceptance as a go to solution in the industry in South Africa. Swedish Stirling has benefited from its in-country team which has meant that COVID 19 restrictions has not prevented progress.

HSP has announced positive results this morning, with a 30% increase in underlying EPS (continuing) for the year to May ‘20. Underlying PBT declined; however the prior year included land sales which did not recur in FY2020A. Stripping these out, profits were ahead YoY. Net debt rose marginally to £28.1m (prior year: £24.5m), largely on the back of accelerated mining activities (positive weather conditions) and delays to the sale of Blindwells, where the company had invested £8m; and is expected to remain steady during the coming year as the group continues to invest in Specialist Earthworks (with a switch to mainly leasing debt on HS2 plant funding). Having deferred the interim dividend on the back of Covid-19, the Board is now reinstating the dividend with a 4.5p payment in respect of the final DPS, reflecting the forward visibility it now feels it has. Given this forward visibility, we would also expect forecasts to be restored to the market in the near future, these having previously been withdrawn.
