Barclays says Shell shares are undervalued and 2017 will be a ‘year of delivery’ 18:00 21 Mar 2017 “Overall with significant progress on divestments already made it appears that Shell has reached the critical path of seeing gearing fall,” he said. Shell tanker at petrol station Barclays has an ‘overweight217; rating for Shell, with a £27.50 price target. Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSB) is in a vastly different position to a year ago, but, it is clear that the oil supermajor’s work is not over, so says Barclays. “The integration with BG is complete and the combined group provides a competitive base from which it should be able to reset and simplify the business,” Barclays analyst Lydia Rainforth said. “The 2016 annual report provided some positive encouragement too with unit opex down 20% and upstream productivity levels now back to 2010 levels.” At the same time, however, the analyst also points out that Shell lost money in its upstream operations for the second consecutive year, and production costs are still materially higher than when Brent last averaged in the US$50s (back in 2005). Nonetheless, Rainforth reckons at the current price of £22.21 the company’s shares are undervalue and says that 2017 will be a ‘year of delivery’. “Overall with significant progress on divestments already made it appears that Shell has reached the critical path of seeing gearing fall,” he said. “This should increase market conviction that the dividend is sustainable, in which case a share price that implies a yield of nearly 7% appears to us meaningfully undervalued.” Barclays has an ‘overweight217; rating for Shell, with a £27.50 price target.

Oil prices rise on talk that OPEC could extend supply cut Updated / Tuesday, 21 Mar 2017 07:29 Strong demand for oil is working to slowly erode a global fuel supply overhang Strong demand for oil is working to slowly erode a global fuel supply overhang Oil prices rose today on expectations that an OPEC-led production cut to prop up the market could be extended. Strong demand is also working to slowly erode a global fuel supply overhang. Prices for front-month Brent crude futures, the international benchmark for oil, were at $51.86 per barrel early this morning up 24 cents, or 0.5%, from their last close. US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were up 13 cents, or 0.3%, at $48.35 a barrel. The Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, together with other producers including Russia, has pledged to cut its output by almost 1.8 million barrels per day (bpd) between January and June in an effort to prop up prices and rein in a global supply glut that has dogged markets for almost three years. Yet so far the cutback has not had the desired effect as compliance by involved exporters is patchy and as other producers, including the US, have stepped up to fill the gap, resulting in crude prices falling more than 10% since the beginning of the year. To halt the decline, OPEC members increasingly favour extending the pact beyond June to balance the market, sources within the group said, although they added that this would require non-OPEC members like Russia to also step up their efforts. Traders also said that healthy oil demand would help rebalance markets and support prices.

Shell Seeks Listing More Shares To Use As Alternative To Cash Dividend By Tsvetana Paraskova - Mar 20, 2017, 1:16 PM CDT Shell Royal Dutch Shell said on Monday that it had applied to the UK Listing Authority and the London Stock Exchange for the listing of 47,791,678 A ordinary shares that will be issued as a scrip dividend alternative to paying a cash dividend for the Q4 2016 interim dividend. Shell is seeking admission of the shares to the Official List of the United Kingdom Listing Authority and to be traded on the main market of the London Stock Exchange. The Anglo-Dutch oil major has also applied to Euronext Amsterdam for the shares to be admitted to trading on Euronext Amsterdam. Trading of those shares, which will rank pari passu with the existing issued A ordinary shares, is expected to begin next Monday, March 27, Shell said in its filing to the London Stock Exchange. Shell started offering a scrip dividend program with its first-quarter interim dividend for 2015. Scrip dividend programs give shareholders the option of being paid dividends in the form of shares rather than in cash. While scrip dividend programs offer certain tax advantages—in Shell’s case, dividends paid in shares are not subject to Dutch dividend withholding tax, currently at 15 percent—offering shares instead of cash is easing some of the cash strain that all the oil majors have been facing since the oil price crash. Related: Can Iran Continue Playing Nicely With OPEC? BP, for example, has been offering scrip dividends since 2010. For the fourth quarter of 2016, almost all supermajors, including BP and Shell, reported disappointing figures. Shell booked a $1 billion profit in the fourth quarter, but full-year earnings of $3.5 billion were the worst in a decade. BP, for its part, reported $72 million in earnings in the fourth quarter, and a full-year 2016 loss of $1 billion. Shell, however, reported a positive cash flow for the second consecutive quarter. That allowed the Anglo-Dutch major to slightly reduce its massive pile of debt that it had accumulated with the purchase of BG Group the previous year. By Tsvetana Paraskova for Oilprice.com

I find trying to work why Shell goes up and down baffling! At the moment the pound is strengthening against the dollar ! Although the oil price has bounced upwards it has fallen sharplt from circa mid fifties depending on type of oil. Current indicators suggest American production is rising making it harder for opec to influence the price.

Where will Royal Dutch Shell plc be in 10 years? A Shell fuel nozzle Photo: Royal Dutch Shell. Fair use. Peter Stephens | Thursday, 16th March, 2017 | More on: RDSB 0 inShare Given recent oil price woes, it may be surprising to find out that Shell (LSE: RDSB) has outperformed the FTSE 100 in the last decade. Its shares have risen by 31%, while the wider index is up 18%. And when dividends are added to the mix, Shell’s relatively high yield has made it a significantly superior investment to the FTSE 100 in the last 10 years. Could more outperformance lie ahead over the next decade? A changing company In terms of where Shell will be as a business in 10 years, the chances are that it will be financially stronger. Its acquisition of BG Group is expected to push free cash flow significantly higher, with $25bn expected by 2020 if oil remains at around $60 per barrel. This compares to free cash flow which has averaged just $5.2bn per annum in the last three years. This improving cash position should provide the company with a wide range of options. Firstly, it could increase dividends per share at a rapid rate. Shell already yields around 6.7%, so any increase to its dividends could cause investor sentiment to rapidly improve. A higher dividend could make the company one of the highest-yielding blue chips around, which at a time when inflation is set to move higher could lead to a rapidly rising share price. Secondly, Shell could use its improved free cash flow to make acquisitions. It has already bought BG Group in one of the most significant Oil & Gas acquisitions of all time. So far, the integration process has been successful and if it continues to remain on track, it could encourage Shell to buy additional assets in future years. As well as strong and improving cash flow, the company also has a debt-to-equity ratio of just 49%. This indicates that other major acquisitions could be entered into within the next decade without compromising the company’s financial stability. The Oil & Gas industry Of course, Shell’s future will be largely dictated by the price of oil and gas in future years. Its free cash flow estimates assume an oil price of $60 per barrel, which may prove to be a somewhat conservative estimate. In the developing world, demand for oil and gas is likely to rise significantly in future years, as wealth levels rise and the use of cars, as well as demand for energy, increases. Similarly, the Trump administration may relax regulations on fossil fuels and make the switch towards greener fuels much slower. This could mean that demand for oil is higher than previously forecast, which could force its price higher. As such, Shell’s profitability may surprise on the upside in the next decade. Share price The outlook for Shell appears to be hugely positive. It seems to have internal and external catalysts to push its share price higher. It also offers an exceptionally high income return which could move even higher if free cash flow rises as forecast. Since it currently trades on a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.5, it seems to offer excellent value for money given its long-term potential. As such, more outperformance of the FTSE 100 appears highly likely over the next 10 years.

Top investor on why now is a good time to buy Shell and BP shares News 13 Mar 2017 Alec Cutler, who runs the Orbis Global Balanced Fund, has revealed the reasons why he thinks BP and Shell shares are a good investment right now. COMMENT Top investor: Why now’s the time to buy Shell and BP shares Cutler has faith in BP shares David Thorpe David Thorpe Despite running a fund that can invest in equities and bonds, he presently has very little exposure to the bond market. He commented that as inflation rises, ‘the yield you can get from bonds remains low.’ He contrasted that with the income investment case for oil giants BP and Shell. Cutler believes the ‘market is missing’ the value in BP and Shell shares, he takes the view that the companies are presently generating enough cash to pay the dividend at the current level, he said, ‘the reality is that if Shell cuts the dividend the chief executive will lose his job. I think Shell and BP are defensive assets in the current climate, because they have the cash to pay the dividend, and they want to pay the dividend, yet the share prices remain low, and the yields are high, that is attractive, and at a time when many markets and many stocks are near record levels, I think Shell and BP are attractive, and defensive assets.’ Read more: Alec Cutler: Why I own Gold right now He remarked that as long as the oil price is somewhere around $50 a barrell, Shell will have enough cash to pay the dividend, with BP he takes the view that the dividend needs to be in the range of $57-59 dollars. Read more: Revealed: The best tech stocks to own for the years ahead The yield on Shell shares is currently 7.5 per cent. Amongst the stocks on which he is less keen are traditional staples of many income portfolios, including Proctor and Gamble and Nestle. Those consumer stocks have very much been in vogue in recent years as inflation and bond yields were low, but rising inflation has seen something of a shift in sentiment against those businesses. Cutler commented that the valuations have not yet moved downwards by enough for him to revise his investment case for the shares. He commented that those companies, while obviously solid businesses, ‘are not currently at a valuation that is attractive. I think that in a few years, in maybe two or three years, people will be wondering why they bought those shares.’

Oil woes continue on reported G20 slowdown The OECD on Monday reported a modest decline in real GDP for the G20 during the fourth quarter. By Daniel J. Graeber Follow @dan_graeber Contact the Author | March 13, 2017 at 9:50 AM Comments0 Comments share with facebook share with twitter Woes continue for crude oil prices after an OECD report finds a slight decline in the rate of growth for the G20 economies during the fourth quarter. File photo by Monika Graff/UPI. | License Photo March 13 (UPI) -- Concerns about the buildup in oil supplies and a report on a modest decline in some of the world's leading economies sent oil prices lower early Monday. Crude oil prices were hammered last week by reports of steady gains in the North American energy market. U.S. shale oil in particular has been more resilient to lower crude oil prices than expected and that has added to lingering concerns about an oversupplied market. Those same concerns were in part to blame for a drop in crude oil prices early last year below $30 per barrel. An effort steered by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries to balance the market through production cuts is having mixed success. The agreement, implemented in January, left crude oil prices near $55 per barrel for most of the year, but improved the market situation enough so companies idled by last year's downturn could return to work. Leonardo Maugeri, a senior fellow with the Geopolitics of Energy Project at Harvard University, said in a recent note that most major producers not party to the OPEC-led effort were gaining ground. "OPEC and non-OPEC cuts are not enough to re-absorb the world's excess supply," he said. The price for Brent crude oil was down 0.6 percent about a half hour before the start of trading in New York to $51.06 per barrel. West Texas Intermediate, the U.S. benchmark price for oil, continued its drift further below the psychological threshold of $50 per barrel to lose 0.58 percent from Friday's close to $48.21 per barrel. The supply-side strains follow a report from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development on growth in real gross domestic product in the G20 area. The OECD reported growth of 0.7 percent during the fourth quarter, down slightly from the 0.8 percent recorded in the previous quarter. North American growth "slowed sharply," the OECD reported, with the United States, the world's leading economy, slowing from 1.1 percent to 0.7 percent. Federal U.S. estimates were higher for the fourth quarter than the preliminary report from the OECD, though the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis in February reported the rate of growth last year was slower than for 2015. Elsewhere, the OECD said Europe was putting the last recession further back in its rearview mirror. Members of the European Union reported slow, but steady, growth from 0.4 percent to 0.5 percent during the fourth quarte

Royal Dutch Shell (RDSB) has taken another significant step to hitting its $30bn disposal target, with the sale of its stakes in the Athabasca and Peace River oil sands projects in Canada, together with a number of undeveloped leases in Alberta. The sale, for which Shell will be compensated in cash and shares totalling $8.5bn, is being made to Canadian Natural Resources, with whom Shell will has separately acquired Marathon Oil’s Canadian subsidiary for $1.25bn. The news would have no doubt been better received by the market, had oil prices not dived over the last two days on inventory build-ups. Our buy call is under review. ic

Shell on Friday cancelled an LNG project in Prince Rupert it acquired when it purchased the BG Group in 2015. When Shell acquired the BG Group for $70 billion there were already questions of whether the Prince Rupert project would remain, as Shell had an existing LNG project in development in nearby Kitimat in northwest B.C. “Acquired as part of the Shell and BG Group combination in 2016, the Prince Rupert LNG project has been part of a global portfolio review of combined assets, which resulted in the decision to discontinue further development,” Shell subsidiary BG International Ltd. said in a written statement. The Prince Rupert office will remain open through May 2017, said the company. Much touted by the B.C. Liberal government, a new export liquefied natural gas export industry has failed to materialize in the province. Mega-projects in northwest B.C. led by Shell, Chevron and Malaysian state-controlled Petronas have been stalled and analysts say that B.C. may have missed the window to capitalize on high Asian prices needed to make the project profitable. LNG projects in B.C. have been hampered by reduced global demand, competition from new entrants such as the U.S., and the need for energy companies to reduce capital spending after oil prices plummeted in 2015.
