  • Global Events Pose Structural Challenges for the Midstream Energy Sector Aug 12 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ram Vadali
    The volatility and demand disruption from the impact of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) are negatively affecting the earnings of many pipeline and midstream energy companies. These conditions are causing customer distress, project delays, and lower pipeline volumes. Nevertheless, diversified midstream energy companies with strong liquidity and cash flows supported by long-term take-or-pay, minimum volume commitments or regulated cost-of-service contracts with strong counterparties have so far weathered the storm. However, the impact of the pandemic, rising geopolitical risks, and the outcome of the U.S. presidential election could all pose structural challenges for the sector.

    Join DBRS Morningstar for a 25-minute discussion, followed by an interactive Q&A session with the audience.

    Gordon Kerr, Senior Vice President, Head of European Structured Finance Research, DBRS Morningstar

  • Credit Views on the Oil and Gas Sector: Recent Rating Actions Explained Jul 14 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Victor Vallance and Ravi Rai
    The global spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) had a significant negative impact on crude oil markets and refined product margins. In late March 2020, DBRS Morningstar placed all its rated oil and gas issuers Under Review with Negative Implications in response to the extreme decline in prices and the heightened volatility in crude oil markets largely caused by the rapid spread of coronavirus and the concurrent crude oil price war between OPEC (led by Saudi Arabia) and Russia.
    In mid-May, with volatility subsiding and market visibility improving, DBRS Morningstar revised its commodity price assumptions to factor in (1) the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on crude oil demand as lockdowns ease, (2) the significant buildup in global oil inventories, and (3) the impact of production cuts implemented by OPEC+. Because of these revised commodity price assumptions, combined with measures taken by companies to navigate through the very weak price environment, DBRS Morningstar has now resolved all the oil and gas rated issuers that were Under Review with Negative Implications and has taken a number of negative rating actions.
    Hear about the process and the reasons behind the rating actions taken by DBRS Morningstar during our 25-minute webinar, which will be followed by an interactive Q&A session with the viewers.

  • COVID-19 and the Credit Outlook for Canadian Banks Recorded: Jun 18 2020 43 mins
    Robert Colangelo
    The wide and growing scale of the economic disruption caused by the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) has resulted in unprecedented support measures being put in place by governments and regulators around the globe in order to help mitigate the negative impacts of the crisis. To this end, the large Canadian banks have granted payment deferrals to a large number of their retail and commercial banking clients. Globally, credit ratings remain pressured due to the significant drop in economic activity, with global macroeconomic forecasts shifting dramatically amidst the continued uncertainty around the depth and duration of the downturn. DBRS Morningstar has recently updated its macroeconomic scenarios, which allows analysts to evaluate a range of potential economic outcomes within their credit analysis.

    In this webinar, our analysts will discuss the updated economic scenarios that are used in credit analysis. They will also explore the impact the economic disruption is having on the overall credit fundamentals of the large Canadian banks and will discuss the outlook for these banks over the remainder of the year and into next year.

    The discussion will last approximately 20 to 25 minutes and will be followed by an interactive question-and-answer session. DBRS Morningstar welcomes all who wish to participate.
  • Chugging along: Canadian Railways and the Coronavirus Recorded: Jun 17 2020 42 mins
    Robert Streda and Amaury Baudouin
    Although a great deal of uncertainty remains related to the severity and duration of the current coronavirus pandemic, Canadian railways have shed some colour on their plans for the rest of 2020 and beyond, and on their ability to weather the current economic fallout from the coronavirus. No industry is immune from the coronavirus and the associated disruptions to the economy and the railway industry, often seen as a reflection of the broader economy, is no exception. DBRS Morningstar views the Canadian railways as more adequately prepared and robust enough to weather the impact of much lower volumes versus its U.S. counterparts. This is due to some differentiating factors and a competitive advantage, which suggest that rating changes for Canadian railways will not likely occur unless the economic scenario worsens considerably from DBRS Morningstar’s base case assumptions.

    The discussion will last approximately 30 minutes and will be followed by an interactive question-and-answer session. DBRS Morningstar welcomes all who wish to participate.
