The energy and banking sectors will be among the most attractive for investors in 2018, as well as the acquisition of shares in national companies, considering that the state will most likely keep the decision to grant dividends of 90 percent of the profit, according to analysts from the capital market sector, present on Tuesday at a debate organized by the Bucharest Stock Exchange (BVB).
Ovidiu Dumitrescu, Deputy General Manager Tradeville, expects the rising crude oil prices to make the energy sector more attractive, but not just for manufacturing companies but also for service providers.
He said that this is not an investment recommendation, but they are examples that are worth studying.
His opinion was also shared by Mihai Caruntu, senior analyst BCR, who expects an affirmative decision of OMV Petrom and Exxon regarding the investment in gas extraction in the Black Sea.
In turn, Gratiana Ordean, Senior Financial Analyst at Banca Transilvania, also said that the energy sector has not reached the full potential.
At the same time, Marius Pandele, analyst Prime Transzaction believes that the banking sector has great potential especially in the current context of rising interest rates, which bring higher revenues for banks.
