First Titan Corp. (OTCBB: FTTN) is casting an interested eye towards making potential new asset acquisitions as crude oil prices continue to rise.
“Nearly a year after prices fell dramatically, the market has shown signs of recovering,” said FTTN CEO Sydney Jim. “This is the perfect time to take advantage and profit from the asset sales less-prepared energy companies have had to endure to stay in business. With the price floor established, the market should now improve going forward, paving the way for us to reap a healthier bottom line from undervalued assets acquired at bargain-basement prices.”
Industry analysts note that on June 2 the futures price of West Texas Intermediate, a key spot market benchmark crude, closed above $61 for the first time since 2014. This level represented a psychological barrier for traders and now that the price has topped that obstacle, it could be poised to rise further, market watchers speculate.
Analysts cite a falling U.S. dollar, increasing domestic refinery demand, declining crude oil inventories, and rising global imports as additional factors that should keep petroleum prices strong through the remainder of the year.
As oil prices dropped suddenly from $100 a barrel to nearly $45 last year, exploration and production companies shed assets to stay competitive.
FTTN has spent the last several months scouting promising energy investments, both in the oil & gas sector and clean energy. “As prices recover, savvy companies that had the daring and the vision to go against the flow, like FTTN, will be rewarded,” Mr. Jim said.
