waldron: 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.

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.
