Why do we like BASF SE?
Reason 1. Companyʼs own forecast on EBIT.
Proto Labs, Inc. is considered the fastest digital manufacturer of plastic and metal parts in the US. The company services are becoming more in-demand because of more protective gear (including masks and face shields) being produced.
Reason 2. The construction of Nord Stream-2 is within reach of its completion.
The Danish Energy Agency has given its permission for Russian anchor ships to complete the gas pipeline. Previously Denmark was against the use of anchor ships as there is a large amount of old ammunition at the bottom of the Baltic Sea, so government regulators feared for the safety of the work. However, the examination established that the gas pipeline will run far from the areas with sunken ammunition. BASF is among the shareholders of Nord Stream 2 AG. Most likely, the construction of this gas pipeline will be completed by the end of the year.
Reason 3. Latest updates from investment houses
Analysts at Jefferies and Commerzbank recommend buying shares with the target prices of €66 and €57, respectively. American investment bank, Morgan Stanley, advises to hold BASF securities with the target price of €53. The average target price for a share is €52.88.
