- Plantation: Are you a Believer of B30? BUY
- Nickel Px dropped as 9 miners resume ore export - stainless steel px also dips
Frederick Daniel, our Plantation Analyst, just attended Indonesia Palm Oil Conference (" IPOC "). Here is his KEY Takeaways:
How high can you go?
Our Sensitivity analysis shows at MYR 2700 per ton
-- CPO price could increase up to MYR2,700 / US$650 per ton -
***Thomas Mielke, James Fry and Dorab Mistry shared the same view that:
- Palm oil production growth would be lower in 2020
- Deficit would occur (mostly in 1H20), palm oil stock will decrease and price would go up.
- Palm oil price would increase to above MYR2,700 per ton ($650 per ton)
Everything seems like it is dependent on Indonesia's Bio Diesel Policy and Commitment
Would price increase sustainable?
-- Depend on govt' of Indonesia's policy on bio-diesel program --
Palm oil price would hit the rock-bottom and increase whenever it drops below Brent oil price. However, with the recent correction in Brent oil price, and palm oil price hike, the gap between palm oil and crude oil expanded.

Thomas Mielke and Dorab Mistry share the same view that B-30 program would not meet its full target (FY20: 9.6mn KL). In 1H20, implementation of B-30 would create deficit in the market and push CPO price higher.
However, as the gap to crude oil expanding, B-30 implementation would be costly which Mielke and Mistry believe would make govt' of Indonesia to reduce blending ratio and consumption of bio-diesel. Thus, CPO price would likely decrease in 2H20.
Sensitivity Analysis towards
An additional MYR100 per ton higher price from the current level would improve
We note that currently
