waldron: Investors to Big Oil: Restrain Yourselves 26/07/2017 12:29pm Dow Jones News Total (EU:FP) Intraday Stock Chart Today : Wednesday 26 July 2017 Click Here for more Total Charts. By Sarah Kent Three years into an oil price slump, investors want the world's biggest oil companies to do something they have historically struggled with: Maintain some financial discipline. The companies are under pressure to show they are continuing to move on from budget-busting projects once common in the industry, as they head into second-quarter financial disclosures that begin on Thursday with Royal Dutch Shell PLC and Total SA. Shell, Total and peers like Exxon Mobil Corp. and Chevron Corp., which both report earnings Friday, have reined in spending through an oil-market downturn during which crude prices fell from $114 a barrel to $27 a barrel and remain around $50 a barrel. Those efforts paid off in the first quarter, when the companies returned to billion-dollar profits after years of losses or anemic earnings. Now, said Jags Walia, senior portfolio manager at Dutch pension fund manager APG Asset Management, "there's no room to take your foot off on capital discipline." "I think that would be quite unforgivable." said Mr. Walia, whose fund invests in several large oil companies, including Exxon, Shell and BP. It's a call for big oil companies to keep the ship steady, reflecting the fine line they are walking this year. International oil prices were up nearly 10% in the second quarter compared with the same time last year. But prices are still likely too low for many companies to cover spending and dividends with cash, or break even. At the same time, the companies have to keep finding new oil to replace the barrels they are pumping. That means spending money on exploration, development and acquisitions. BP, which reports earnings next Tuesday, faced criticism from investors and analysts after a flurry of acquisitions inflated its investment plans for 2017 and pushed up the oil price at which the company could break even to $60 a barrel. The company's shares fell 4% following the February announcement. It has since said it is working to drive down its break-even oil price to between $35 to $40 a barrel by 2021. It isn't just BP. The number of new projects approved this year across the industry is expected to creep up to between 20 and 25 from just 12 in 2016, according to Edinburgh-based consultancy Wood Mackenzie. The oil companies declined to comment ahead of their earnings reports. But they have moved to tackle the challenges. BP's costs are down 40% since 2013 and it has vowed to maintain a budget cap of $17 billion a year out to 2021. At BP's first-quarter results in May, Chief Financial Officer Brian Gilvary said the company intended to deliver on promises to increase cash flow and dividends in the coming years by "maintaining strict discipline within our financial frame and staying focused on delivering returns." Exxon's capital spending last year was $12 billion lower than in 2015, though it has crept higher this year. The company says it is focusing a chunk of its firepower on shale developments that start to generate cash quickly. Chevron has said it will be able to cover its spending and dividends with cash at $50 a barrel this year with the help of asset sales. In April, Chevron said it had lowered capital spending 22% compared with its average quarter in 2016 and 56% versus the average quarter in 2014. The company plans to spend $17 billion to $22 billion a year out to the end of the decade. "If oil prices remain near the $50 per barrel mark, you can expect to see our future spend near the bottom of this range," CFO Patricia Yarrington told analysts in April. The companies have said that they still have room to cut further and that they can start to invest in new projects without returning to the spendthrift era that eroded returns before the oil price crash in 2014. Capital spending on new projects sanctioned so far this year is on average just $11 per barrel of oil equivalent, down from $15 in 2015, according to Wood Mackenzie. "I think a lot of these companies have found religion," said Brian Youngberg, senior energy analyst at brokerage firm Edward Jones. "They realize now they can't just spend, spend, spend. They have to be more disciplined with their capital." Exxon, Shell, BP and Chevron have all indicated they will be able to generate enough cash this year to cover spending and shareholder payouts at $60 a barrel, but at $50 the picture is more mixed. Even next year, many of them will still need higher oil prices to cover their costs, according to analysis by Macquarie. Investors remain cautious. Big oil companies' share prices are little changed or lower than at the same time last year, even though oil prices are higher. For instance, Exxon's share price is down more than 10% from a year ago. The companies still have high debt levels, and some -- like Shell and Total -- offer dividends as company shares, known as scrip, helping them to preserve cash but also diluting investors' earnings per share. "We need to see discipline and people being more realistic about where oil prices could remain for quite a long time," said Jason Kenney, an oil-company analyst at Spanish lender, Banco Santander. It's a tall order for an industry that struggled to break even when oil was at $100 a barrel. And the challenge facing the companies could be more difficult after banks revised their oil-price forecasts downward in recent months. "The goal posts have moved," Deutsche Bank said earlier this month. "It's time to go away and remodel for a $45 to $50 a barrel world."

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 www.shell.com/scrip.

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.

grupo guitarlumber: Why Royal Dutch Shell plc could double by 2020! A Shell fuel nozzle Photo: Royal Dutch Shell. Fair use. By Peter Stephens - Wednesday, 11 May, 2016 | More on: RDSB 0 inShare During the dark days of the credit crunch, Shell’s (LSE: RDSB) share price reached a low of around 1,280p and it then took just over three years and three months for it to double. Clearly, the wider stock market was in dire straits in October 2008 and the oil price was also exceptionally low. But with both of them moving higher in the years following Shell’s share price low, the oil major was able to deliver an astonishing rise in its valuation. While the FTSE 100 isn’t particularly low at the present time, the oil price is. Yes it has risen significantly from its $28 per barrel low earlier this year, but it’s still trading at less than $50 per barrel. This indicates that there’s substantial upside in the price of black gold, with increasing demand from emerging markets as well as market forces having the potential to combine and drive the price of oil higher in the coming years. Efficiency and expansion Clearly, a higher oil price would be great news for Shell and it could help to boost its profitability. As ever, rising profitability is likely to lead to improved investor sentiment and a higher share price. However, the company is also using the current low ebb in the oil price to strengthen its long-term profit outlook. Notably, it has purchased BG Group and this not only improves the quality of its asset base, but also boosts Shell’s diversity. Furthermore, Shell has adopted a sensible strategy of reducing exploration spend and cutting back on costs as it seeks to become increasingly efficient. This should boost profitability and could push its share price higher. With Shell forecast to increase its bottom line by 75% in the 2017 financial year, its shares could gain a real boost from improving investor sentiment. Furthermore, they trade on a price-to-earnings-growth (PEG) ratio of just 0.2 and this indicates that Shell could post stunning gains and still offer excellent value for money. And with Shell having a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of only 1.3, its shares appear to offer the scope to double within the next three-and-a-half years – especially if profitability improves. While Shell has the potential to double by 2020, it also comes with risks. The oil price could come under further pressure in the short run since it remains highly volatile and dependent on news flow rather than fundamentals over a shorter period of time. In addition, Shell may be forced to cut its dividend, which could harm investor sentiment, although it’s likely to remain a relatively high-yield play. However, such situations could present an even better opportunity to buy a slice of Shell for the long haul, with the company having sound finances, a sensible strategy and the asset base to navigate the current oil price woes and deliver a doubling of its share price over the medium-to-long term. Of course, finding the best stocks at the lowest prices can be challenging when work and other commitments get in the way.

diku: RDSB share price is indirectly telling the insiders to walk away from BG deal....it 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 voice...no 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.
