fjgooner: After Woodford's 2015 WPCT IPO most serious investors will know how to critically contrast his view of Shell by a simple and direct comparison during that period between WPCT and RDSB - and to think that some people pay for such advice like that ffs :) . I'm reading Daniel Yergin's book "The Quest" right now - I'd humbly suggest that "energy sector commentators" do the same before spouting too much in this space in the future. Context exists in such history and is readily available to inform future strategic policy. As for a dividend increase at Shell - no thank you. We need at least the next 2 quarters to stabilise debt levels reducing down to the company's targetted gearing of around 20% before removing the scrip - hopefully around 2018Q2. After that, have fun by all means ... but serious investors here are in no rush. And many of us would also request that future share buybacks be strategically set aside for use only in times of periodic share price (comparative) weakness. No dividend increase until at least 2019Q1 please. (Sterling affects aside of course.) FJ Re energy trends: Get Used to These Higher Oil Prices Rising demand and falling inventory are not just a U.S. phenomenon. by Jason Schenker 02‎ ‎November‎ ‎2017‎ ‎16‎:‎00 Oil prices are at their highest since the start of the year, after rising above the key $50-a-barrel mark in September and holding those gains. Rather than pure speculation, this move is rooted in fundamentals: falling inventories and increasing demand. The outlook for crude is no less bright as U.S. fiscal stimulus, in the form of tax cuts financed by additional deficit spending, could also send prices higher. In the U.S., total stocks (excluding the Strategic Petroleum Reserve) are down 5.6 percent from a year ago, with distillate inventories lower by 14.4 percent at a time when economic growth has been solid and diesel demand is likely to remain strong. Plus, heating oil demand will soon kick in as the winter approaches. And if refinery runs increase to meet these product deficits -- which seems likely -- demand for crude would strengthen, further boosting prices. Falling oil and petroleum product inventory dynamics is not just a U.S. phenomenon. Commercial stocks have been trending lower all year for the member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, both in absolute terms and in the number of “days of supply.” Due to these declines, OECD commercial stocks are now close to the average OECD commercial inventory levels between 2012 and 2016. These supply dynamics are supportive for oil prices. Crude oil -- like all commodities -- is bought and not sold. That means global oil demand is even more important than available stocks, especially for near-term price dynamics. To understand the current demand-side pressures, global purchasing manager indexes (PMIs) for manufacturing are an excellent leading proxy for oil prices. Despite all the talk of the shale revolution, one of the main reasons oil prices fell so sharply in late 2014, 2015 and early 2016 is that China entered a manufacturing recession. Ignoring the official government gross domestic product data, the Chinese Caixin Manufacturing PMI conveyed contractions, defined as readings below 50, in 18 out of 19 months between December 2014 and June 2016. The index has only contracted once since July 2016, demonstrating that Chinese growth in manufacturing -- and overall economic and oil demand growth -- are on stronger footing. Improvements in Chinese manufacturing have occurred against a backdrop of very strong compounding expansions of the U.S. ISM manufacturing index and the euro-zone manufacturing PMI that have recently led to multi-year highs. Although the U.S. ISM eased in October to 58.7, it remained near the September reading, which was the highest in 13 years. The October euro zone manufacturing PMI at 58.5 is the highest in 80 months. Tax cuts and additional debt-financed spending that spurs U.S. growth would likely have what supply-chain experts call a bullwhip effect through the global economy in a way that strong U.S. growth supports even stronger growth in manufacturing-centric economies such as China, which also happens to be the world's biggest net importer of crude oil. A stronger pace of growth in China could exert an outsized impact on demand for commodities, which would likely send crude oil prices higher. Against this price-supportive set of dynamics, trading technicals are starting to contribute to the rise in both West Texas Intermediate and Brent oil prices. For WTI, there has been a trend of higher lows in place since June 2017. Plus, prices have been trading above an important support line of higher lows that held firm from April 2016 until May 2017 (the blue diagonal line in the graphic). That followed WTI’s rise above its 30- and 100-day moving averages, as well as bullish signals in relative strength and volume technicals. It looks like traders and algorithms have fallen in line behind the fundamentals of supply and demand. Oil prices may not see a linear rise higher, and there is a perennial risk of price volatility around the next OPEC meeting in Vienna, on Nov. 30. Nevertheless, there are further upside risks to Brent and WTI prices in the year ahead, as global growth remains strong and inventories are at risk of declining. If U.S. tax cuts go through, that upside risk to prices could be even greater. After all, even if shale drilling increases with higher oil demand and prices, the boost to global growth could engender oil demand that outstrips potential available short-term shale production that is subject to sharp decline curves.

waldron: Royal Dutch Shell Scrip Dividend Programme Reference Share Price 25/05/2017 7:45am UK Regulatory (RNS & others) TIDMRDSA TIDMRDSB ROYAL DUTCH SHELL PLC FIRST QUARTER 2017 SCRIP DIVIDEND PROGRAMME REFERENCE SHARE PRICE The Board of Royal Dutch Shell plc ("RDS") today announced the Reference Share Price in respect of the first quarter interim dividend of 2017, which was announced on May 4, 2017 at $0.47 per A ordinary share ("A Share") and B ordinary share ("B Share") and $0.94 per American Depository Share ("ADS"). Reference Share Price The Reference Share price is used for calculating a Participating Shareholder's entitlement under the Scrip Dividend Programme, as defined below. Q1 2017 Reference Share price (US$) 27.526 The Reference Share Price is the US dollar equivalent of the average of the closing price for the Company's A Shares listed on Euronext Amsterdam for the five dealing days commencing on (and including) the date on which the Shares are first quoted ex-dividend in respect of the relevant dividend. The Reference Share Price is calculated by reference to the Euronext Amsterdam closing price in euro. The US dollar equivalent of the closing price on each of the dealing days referred to above is calculated using a market currency exchange rate prevailing at the time. Reference ADS Price ADS stands for "American Depositary Share". ADR stands for "American Depositary Receipt". An ADR is a certificate that evidences ADSs (though the terms ADR and ADS are often used interchangeably). ADSs are listed on the NYSE under the symbols RDS.A and RDS.B. Each ADS represents two ordinary shares, two ordinary A Shares in the case of RDS.A or two ordinary B Shares in the case of RDS.B. Q1 2017 Reference ADS price (US$) 55.052 The Reference ADS Price equals the Reference Share Price of the two A Shares underlying each new A ADS. Scrip Dividend Programme RDS provides shareholders with a choice to receive dividends in cash or in shares via the Scrip Dividend Programme (the "Programme"). Under the Programme shareholders can increase their shareholding in RDS by choosing to receive new shares instead of cash dividends, if approved by the Board. Only new A Shares will be issued under the Programme, including to shareholders who currently hold B Shares. In some countries, joining the Programme may currently offer a tax advantage compared with receiving cash dividends. In particular, dividends paid out as shares by RDS will not be subject to Dutch dividend withholding tax (currently 15 per cent), unlike cash dividends paid on A shares, and they will not generally be taxed on receipt by a UK shareholder or a Dutch shareholder. Shareholders who elect to join the Programme will increase the number of shares held in RDS without having to buy existing shares in the market, thereby avoiding associated dealing costs. Shareholders who do not join the Programme will continue to receive in cash any dividends approved by the Board. Shareholders who held only B Shares and joined the Programme are reminded they will need to make a Scrip Dividend Election in respect of their new A Shares if they wish to join the Programme in respect of such new shares. However, this is only necessary if the shareholder has not previously made a Scrip Dividend Election in respect of any new A Shares issued. For further information on the Programme, including how to join if you are eligible, please refer to the appropriate publication available on Royal Dutch Shell plc The Hague, May 25, 2017
fjgooner: Good morning La Forge, I can’t possibly offer links to a future event. However, I can offer some of the influences that shape my personal view for a RDSB share price of £28 By 2017Q2 Results. So let's start with the target being discussed - £28. That is 17.77% higher than the current share price. 2017Q2 Results are likely to be published by the end of July - so that is approximately 27.5 weeks from Monday. So we are looking at an average increase in share price of just under 0.65% per week - obviously smoothing the peaks, troughs and any pullbacks along the way. So what key factors could be in play during these next 27 weeks? In the shortest term, I’d suggest currency movements. Share prices of FTSE100 constituents that earn profits in dollars but report in pounds sterling have benefitted since the Brexit vote as the pound significantly weakened against the dollar. So it would seem reasonable to expect that further movements will be similarly reflected both in the base share prices and any dividends paid of such companies. Just today in the Sunday Times there was an article entitled Theresa May calls for ‘clean and hard’ Brexit . Within that article it was stated that Downing Street staff expect her words to cause a “market correction” that could lead to a fresh fall in the pound. This could give an immediate lift to shares such as RDSB. Thereafter we will have the publication of Shell’s own results for 06Q4, 07Q1 and 07Q2 on February 4th, May 4th and July 28th. We already know that 06Q4 covers a period where commodity prices had recovered substantially by comparison to prior quarters and, so far, this has continued into 07Q1. Unless the OPEC deal unravels and commodity prices reverse, I find it hard to imagine that the reporting of any of these periods will be met negatively by the market. And whilst we’re on that subject, we have a few OPEC related dates during this period. Late last year, the Russians were suggesting that an OPEC/non-OPEC monitoring group should meet somewhere around January 20th to assess the initial implementation and compliance of the agreement. Thereafter, there is the next Ordinary Meeting of OPEC that will convene in Vienna, Austria, on the 25th May. This will be followed shortly by the completion of the first 6-month term of the OPEC production cut agreement at the end of June. Presumably this will be accompanied by further details on compliance and confirmation – and whether a second 6 months of cuts will be implemented. All of these are likely to have some influence of the price of energy stocks such as Shell. Saudi Arabia’s intention to get the float of Aramco off to a good start will, IMHO, mean that there will be a lot of pressure to get all of the compliance and associated news in the meetings above to be as positive as possible. Of course, any positive momentum can be checked by other negative and macro factors along the way, but all in all I’m generally positive enough to envisage an average Shell share price build of 0.65% per week over the next 27.5 weeks to meet that £28 target. But as ever, do your own research and I wish you all the best of luck with your investment decision whichever way you go. FJ
waldron: Will Shell power past 2,500? And what then? Shell LNG Image: Royal Dutch Shell. Fair use. By Kevin Godbold - Thursday, 20 October, 2016 | More on: RDSB 0 inShare A big chunk of Royal Dutch Shell’s (LSE: RDSB) earnings is in US dollars and the translation effect for the London-listed firm has helped drive the share price higher since sterling’s post-Brexi referendum slump. Sterling’s not the only driver though. A resurgent oil price this year has helped, as has operational progress — notably, improved growth prospects due to Shell’s acquisition of BG Group in February. Beware of reversals Looking at Shell’s share price chart, I’d wager that investor sentiment will combine with these factors to power the shares to 2,500p. The gap between today’s 2,156p or so and last year’s peak is screaming out to be filled. But what then? Shell reports its revenue and profits in US dollars. But the company’s listing on the London stock market means that a sterling denominated market capitalisation understates the value of the firm’s profits and assets when sterling falls against the dollar. Thus the share price tends to rise to adjust for that effect as the pound plunges. That’s delivered a handy outcome for British shareholders so far this year as Shell’s shares have shot up. However, I could argue that sterling looks like it’s on the floor. It could go lower of course, but it may rebound too, and if that happens the translation effect could reverse and act as a drag on Shell’s share price. Currency movements Trying to predict currency movements is a complex business though. Some City traders win and lose fortunes specialising in trying to do that alone. Generally speaking, currencies rise and fall against each other based on the perceived relative strength of their economies. That’s why sterling is down, traders are guessing that Britain’s economic prospects have weakened compared to, say, America’s since we voted to leave the EU. However, it’s just a guess. The Brexiteers could be right in the end and Britain’s economic prospects could turn up in the medium-to-long term as a result of leaving the EU. If that happens, watch out for a resurgent pound that could help to cap further rises for Shell. Shell and the oil price myth I used to consider arguments that the price of oil doesn’t affect oil majors too much because downstream and upstream operations tend to balance each other out. Bunkum! The recent slide in the price of oil teaches a different lesson. Oil producers, including big ones such as Shell, have been bent double from the blow of lower oil prices as their cash flows dwindled and operations became uneconomic. I reckon the price of oil and what it does from here will be a big factor in where Shell’s share price goes. Shell is a commodity producer and therefore inherently cyclical. Right now we seem to be seeing over-supply affecting the oil price, but reducing demand could also take its toll down the road. Cyclicals don’t make good buy-and-forget investments. Their profits and share prices tend to be volatile, so Shell’s high-looking dividend yield may not indicate as much value as we might think. After all, forward earnings only cover the payout around once and that’s after City analysts have pencilled-in a dramatic recovery in profits over the next couple of years. Enduring long-term plays I think Shell looks fully priced for the time being and wouldn't invest new money in the firm's shares today. Instead, companies with strong trading niches, stable economics and resilient cash flows make more enduring long-term plays as exemplified in this investment research paper produced by the Motley Fool Analysts.

chairman20: atlantic re the dollar - the key driver behind the RDSB share price As you say only you wont have read a word here of understanding the meaning for Shell whose products and raw material are all priced in $. The company even pays its dividend in $ for heavens' sake. - enough to make you weep.
fjgooner: Re: Royston Wild has no position in any shares mentioned. That may well be true, but he certainly seems to have a determination to post relentless negative articles on Shell every few days, all year long. Have a look at: Here are a few typical Royston Wild headlines from 2016, but there are many, many more to choose from the link posted above - enjoy. I've included the Closing Price of Shell to give you an idea of how helpful his advice has been so far this year if the casual investor had taken it. RDSB Shareprice today: £21.675. 60% higher than when he posted his classic "I believe investors should resist attempting to pick up a bargain" when the RDSB Shareprice was at £13.51.

diku: RDSB share price is indirectly telling the insiders to walk away from BG is getting to a stage of loss of confidence at board level...even if the CEO steps down no doubt he walks with a golden goodbye with his pension...wider shareholders hung high and dry as usual....where is wider shareholder wonder the insider exclusive club survives in the merry go round...
careful: cost = 3.83 + (.4453x rdsb) = (3.83 + 6.5) = £10.33 per BG. share. BG. today trading at £32.1bn.(9.4per share) cost = £36.48bn or about $55bn. for this you get its assets, debt, future prospects, synergies. this out of touch $70bn needs updating. this 21% price reduction caused by the fall in RDSB share price makes it good value. the new cost is $55bn.
careful: most of the bg. deal is in RDSB shares. £3.83 + (.45x rdsb share price.) at the time of the deal RDSB were about £22. the offer was worth £3.83+£9.9 = £13.73 today = £3.83 + £7.54 = £11.37. already it is 17% cheaper. Shell take a 100 year view as always,and know what they are doing.
