Energy prices are rising from the U.S. to Europe, and while that might spark a good upside for energy companies it’s causing a crisis for those reliant in Europe. BSF SE and Aurubis AG are the continent’s number one producers in chemicals and copper respectively, but energy prices are eating at their margins. Major U.K. fertilizer companies are shutting down plant production in Norway. Gas prices are up nearly 200% in Europe and input costs have doubled as a supply crunch ravages the West. This shortage is painful on the frontside with high input costs but on the sell-side as well. Higher energy costs are eating up a larger percentage of home budgets and curtailing retail spending. Goldman Sachs expects the calamity to continue into the winter and warns of blackouts if consumption isn’t curbed.
FINSUM + Magnifi: This is the time to up the stakes in American energy prices. Energy shortages aren’t good for anyone but oil and gas are release valves.
