The investment house continues to see upside in the sector. In the broker’s view, the long-term outlook is still strong, and the spot price assumptions for 2023-2024 have been raised by 11 and 10 percent respectively to NOK 82 (€8.3) and NOK 74 (€7.5).

Based on the broker’s updated estimates, the traditional fish farmers are trading at 14-15 times EPS (earnings per share – editor’s note) in 2022-2023.

“Although earnings in 2023 will struggle to exceed 2022 as a result of lower margins from lower spot prices and increased cost inflation, we believe current pricing is attractive given the long-term outlook for the industry – where demand will exceed supply in the coming years,” it says.
