Very good morning, this is Morgenkaffen with Finansavisen on Friday 19 January

After the listing rush during the Corona pandemic, there has been a drought in Oslo Bors. Now brokerages expect activity to increase again.

Tormod Høiby of Pareto Securities expects an active capital market and says they are working on about a dozen IPOs. DNB Markets' Peter Behnke also expects higher activity, and says they are working on about 10 to 11 IPOs.

Gut E, investment director at Eika, predicts tough times for oil and gas. He believes companies like Equinor and Vår Energi should be avoided, and says he wouldn't be surprised if TGS halved during the year.

Instead, Eika is more focused on technology now. There, Gaute Eie believes Nordic Semiconductor could make a strong comeback.

The Norwegian house market is attracting more and more foreign buyers, and Dutchman Geert Rietman holds monthly courses for foreigners who want to buy a holiday home in Norway.

There he talks about the purchasing process, how works, what paperwork is required and the expenses that come with a cabin. He says there are many people who are confused by the bidding round, but most of them react very positively to the open process.

In the introduction, Trygve Hegnar writes about the woman from Eastern Norway who won NOK 1.36 billion in the Eurojackpot competition. Thus, women move to 314th place above the richest people in the country. Right on Capital's Billionaires List. It's very cool.

There are probably some sour pumps who do not like such jackpots and individual wealth. “We are very excited about what could happen for ordinary people,” Hegnar writes.
