This oil giant just entered “Buying Territory”
Globally, shares are deep in correction territory, offering patient investors opportunities to deliver returns in a tough market.

Sasol has fallen almost 30% from its September high to below R420 on a weaker oil price and weak global sentiment. The R400 support level should be the bottom ahead of a move higher.

Last week, Sasol released a positive trading update for the interim period to 31 December signalling HEPS increasing between 12% and 29%. And EBITDA to increase between 10% and 30%.

With Lake Charles nearing completion after $9.8 billion of the $11.13 billion CAPEX, earnings should start to benefit from the 1.5mtpa ethane cracker and 6 downstream chemical units. It’s expected to contribute between $250m and $300m to EBITDA in full year 2019.
Investors who accumulate below R420 will be rewarded as the share pushes back to the R500 level.
