Beach Energy’s share price future tied to further developments in oil price

With a future so closely tied to the price of oil, it is difficult forecasting where the stock could head.

Markets & Money’s Jason Stevenson does an excellent job of outlining why oil could get a big bounce in the coming months.

A lot hinges on Iranian sanctions and growing demand.

Demand from China is growing, and according to Jason Stevenson it will likely flaunt the sanctions on Iran by buying the unpurchased oil.

So if he is right, Beach Energy could be set for a big bounce as well.

Long-term risks include a recession, which has traditionally crushed oil prices as global growth slows.

All things considered, there could be a window of opportunity for Beach Energy, should it find its bottom in the coming weeks.
