Oil Prices Climb On US Fuel Demand Optimism

Oil prices climbed on Thursday as strong fuel demand data coupled with optimism over the Federal Reserve cutting interest rates later this year outweighed U.S. debt ceiling worries.

Benchmark Brent crude futures rose a little over 1 percent to $77.18 a barrel, while WTI crude futures were up nearly 1 percent at $73.27.

Latest data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) showed that gasoline inventories declined by 3.2 million barrels last week, raising optimism about strong fuel demand from the world’s top oil consumer.

Distillate fuel inventories, which include diesel and heating oil, tumbled by 4.2 million barrels, helping offset worries surrounding recession and the U.S. debt ceiling.

U.S. jet fuel demand rose to its highest level since December 2019, suggesting demand for transport fuels remains resilient in the U.S.

Meanwhile, softer-than-expected U.S. inflation data raised hopes that the Fed would start cutting rates this year to shore up the economy.

The dollar traded higher in European trade ahead of U.S. producer price inflation data due out later in the day.

The Bank of England’s rate decision is also due later in the day.

Aareal Bank Q1 Profit Surges; Backs FY23 View

Germany’s Aareal Bank Group (AAALF.PK) reported Thursday that its first-quarter consolidated net income allocated to ordinary shareholders was 47 million euros, significantly higher than 15 million euros last year. Earnings per share came to 0.78 euro, compared to 0.25 euro a year ago.

Aareal Bank Group doubled its consolidated operating profit in the first quarter to 62 million euros from 30 million euros last year.

Net interest income rose 40 percent to 222 million euros from 159 million euros last year, driven by solid margins and higher portfolio volume, as well as the deposit-taking business continued to benefit from rising interest rates.

Net commission income also continued to increase, rising 13 percent to reach 72 million euros. Software subsidiary Aareon’s growth was a major contributor to this.

Aareon said its sales revenues continued to develop very favourably, whilst the strong deposit base remained above the full-year target.

Looking ahead for fiscal 2023, Aareal Bank continues to expect consolidated operating profit of between 240 million euros and 280 million euros.
