ASX Top 200 Stocks Down Under 21 March 2022: Beach Energy (ASX:BPT)

Beach Energy: It’s facing a hot market, but can it capitalise?

Today, we look at Beach Energy (ASX: BPT). Like it’s peer Santos, it was born from the discovery of petroleum in South Australia and is below pre-pandemic levels even with the rise in oil prices. We think it presents an opportunity if you’re comfortable with the slightly higher risk. The company has had a number of problems including a downgrade of its Western Flank assets, speculation major shareholder Kerry Stokes would exit and hasn’t been as keen to engage in M&A activity. But we believe the current highs in oil prices will boost the bottom line, it is trading at a reasonable valuation and as we said last week with Santos, the talk of its demise among ESG investors has been greatly exaggerated.
