waldron: Could BP plc fall to 200p and Royal Dutch Shell plc drop to 1,000p? By Motley Fool | Thu, 19th May 2016 - 16:57 Share this Change is an unavoidable part of business. Schlumpeter's concept of "creative destruction" means that no company can afford to stand still. For example, the photographic industry, which had always been based on film, made the move to electronic CCD technology, and people now take photos not just using digital cameras but also phones and tablets. And the television was based on the clunky and expensive cathode ray tube (CRT) for around a century, but now LCD and LED flat screens have transformed this sector. Long in the tooth Yet the automotive industry has been a surprising exception -- at least until now. The current car industry is very long in the tooth. The motor car was invented in 1886, some 130 years ago. Cars have always been petrol or diesel driven. All that has happened over the decades is that cars have become more fuel efficient (recent fuel economy testing scandals notwithstanding), faster and safer. That's why I think oil companies such as BP (LSE:BP) and Royal Dutch Shell (LSE:RDSB) are living on borrowed time. I'm not saying that the oil industry will collapse overnight, but it is certainly likely to gradually -- perhaps very gradually -- fade out. Just as advances in technology mean that, for the first time, solar cells are now commercially viable, so advances in battery, hybrid and fuel cell technology will mean that they will become more and more competitive with petrol and diesel. No short-term blip Over this broad brushstroke trend, we can overlay the commodities supercycle, which shows that the oil and gas boom of the last 17 years is well and truly over. This has led to tumbling commodity prices, which has sent the share prices of BP and Royal Dutch Shell sliding. Massive investment in production capacity has meant that global supply has overtaken global demand, leading to falling prices. What's more, when none of the major oil producers is willing to cut production to bring supply and demand into balance, it's unlikely to be just a short-term blip. That's why I feel the valuations of these companies have not yet bottomed, but in fact could slide a lot further. Just what price levels could they sink to? Well, let's take BP first. At its current price of 357p, it made a net loss of £4.31bn in 2015, after a profit of £2.57bn in 2014. Analysts reckon its 2016 P/E ratio will be an expensive 27.37. I think a downward re-rating is on the cards and the share price could, over the next decade, nearly halve. That means a low of 200p. What about Royal Dutch Shell? At its current price of 1,669p, this business made a net profit of £1.48bn in 2015, down from £9.46bn in 2014. The prediction is a 2016 P/E ratio of 27.13. At the current valuation, Shell is also pricey. Much of Shell's money is now made from gas rather than oil, but gas prices have also been tumbling. That's why I suspect, over the next decade, the share price could fall to a low of 1,000p. That's why, if you are a small investor, my view is that you should not invest in either of these firms.

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.

the grumpy old men: Royal Dutch Shell plc reports 63% fall in profit as low oil price begins to bite Shell petrol station sign Photo: Royal Dutch Shell plc. Fair Use. By Peter Stephens - Wednesday, 4 May, 2016 | More on: RDSB 0 inShare Shell’s (LSE: RDSB) first set of results following the combination with BG Group show just how challenging the oil and gas industry is at the present time. The company has reported a fall in first quarter constant cost of supplies earnings per share of 63% when compared to the first quarter of the previous year. However, its share price is flat even after such a disappointing result. Clearly, the market was expecting such a result since the price of oil has reached a low of $28 per barrel during the quarter. This has caused Shell’s cash flow from operating activities to come under pressure, with it falling from $7.1bn in the first quarter of 2015 to just $700m in the comparable quarter of the current year. That’s a drop of around 91% and means that Shell experienced negative working capital movements of $3.9bn during the quarter. And with gearing levels rising to 26% from 12% last year, investors could argue that the company’s financial future is in some doubt. Don’t panic… However, delving a little deeper shows that Shell remains a very financially sound business with a bright long-term future. Its gearing levels have risen mainly as a result of the BG deal, which has the potential to act as a springboard towards future profitability due to BG’s strong position within the liquefied natural gas space. And while Shell’s financial performance has been hurt by a lower oil price, its strategy of cutting costs seems to be positioning it for future growth, with it today announcing a further 10% reduction in investment spending for 2016 to $30bn. Furthermore, Shell now believes that it will be able to integrate its operations with those of BG at a lower cost than was first anticipated. This should help to ease the pressure on its finances yet further and with the price of oil now higher than it was earlier in the year, Shell’s share price could move upwards over the medium-to-long term. There’s certainly scope for an upward rerating to Shell’s share price. It trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 13.3 and with an improving asset base following the combination with BG, Shell seems to be a relatively strong buy – particularly when its ability to reduce costs and make efficiencies it taken into account. Shell also today announced a quarterly dividend of $0.47 per share, which is the same as in the previous quarter and also level with the dividend from a year ago. While the company’s disappointing financial performance is a cause for concern, Shell’s earnings are expected to cover dividends in the next financial year, which makes the potential for a severe reduction less likely. And with Shell yielding 7.4%, it remains a very enticing income play. So, while Shell’s first quarter results make for difficult reading, it seems to be in a relatively strong position to deliver future capital gains as well as a high income return. As such, for long-term investors, now could be a good time to buy.

grupo: 3 Reasons Royal Dutch Shell's Stock Could Rise April 04, 2016, 09:55:05 AM EDT By Tyler Crowe, The Motley Fool, Motley Fool Comment Image Source: Royal Dutch Shell via The past half decade has not been too kind to shares of Royal Dutch Shell . Even when oil was at $100 a barrel or more, troubles with overspending led to shares going pretty much nowhere. Once the oil price plunge hit a little less than two years ago, things got even worse. RDS.B Chart RDS.B data by YCharts Like so many other companies, the prospects of Shell's stock price is going to wax and wane with the price of oil. Beyond that, though, there are a few things that management is doing that could help boost its share price over the long term. Let's look at three catalysts that could help Shell put its shares back on track in the coming years. Robust LNG demand For the most part, integrated oil companies avoid being overly concentrated to a single aspect of the oil and gas industry. They all have similar percentages of upstream & downstream assets, and the same for a balance between oil and gas production. The theory is that by having a broad, balanced portfolio of assets, it helps to smooth out some of the volatility in the market. That being said, Royal Dutch Shell is making a pretty outsized bet on the globalization of natural gas through LNG shipments. With BG Group into the fold now, Shell's LNG footprint is larger than the next two integrated oil companies combined Image Source: Royal Dutch Shell investor presentation We have started to see a bit of a decline in LNG prices, and that has led some companies to rethink some of their LNG investments a few years down the road. Ultimately, though, LNG is a strong business for integrated oil companies because it's mostly conducted with long term supply contracts that aren't influenced too much by the fluctuation of natural gas prices . If Shell can realize some strong demand across its LNG portfolio, it would likely provide a strong source of free cash flow that can be used to pay dividends and other shareholder friendly initiatives. Strong cost savings from BG Group integration Royal Dutch Shell pretty has much no control of the price of the commodities which it sells, so the only real thing that the company can control is its costs and its capital allocation. This issue has come to the forefront for oil and gas producers as they try to handle the low price environment, but it's quite pertinent for Shell because it has just recently completed the $50 billion acquisition of BG Group. According to Shell, it believes that it can realize pre-tax cost savings of $3.5 billion by 2018. To meet that sort of ambitious savings, it will involve lots of job cuts and consolidating operations in places were the company has large overlap like Brazil, Australia, Egypt, and North America. Image Source: Royal Dutch Shell investor presentation So there are plenty of opportunities to be more selective about capital spending and to reduce costs in overlapping regions. The real challenge now, though, is to actually execute on those cost cuts. Trying to reshape the corporate culture and operating procedures can be a daunting task, and the size of BG Group will make it that much more challenging in the first several months. If management can indeed meet its stated goals for lower operational expenses and more targeted capital spending, then it should really help the company boost its returns on capital, something Shell has struggled with in recent years. A boost in returns could go a long way in earning Shell a higher valuation multiple and send its share price higher. Making good on shareholder return program For a long term shareholder, this is probably the most important catalyst for the company's stock in the coming years. In 2017, when management believes the BG integration will be mostly complete and oil prices were be in a better place, the company intends on buying back about $25 billion worth of the company's stock over a three year period. The company is waiting until 2017 to start the program because it can't cover today's capital spending and dividend payments with cash from operations. Management estimates that by 2017, all capital spending and dividend payments will be covered with cash, and some remaining from asset sales and excess cash flow can go into repurchases. A large portion of that is to help recover the share dilution that took place following the BG acquisition, but if the combined companies were to lead to much higher overall earnings, then removing that many shares should go a long way in boosting per share profits. So much of this shareholder return program is predicated on oil prices, though. The combined company and its estimated cost cutting is expected to bring the company's production break-even price from $70 per barrel to the low-to-mid $60 range. It's an improvement, but still quite a ways off from today's oil prices. If we don't see a decent rebound in oil prices between now and 2017, though, this major share repurchase program may need to be put on the back burner. What a Fool believes I -- and no one, really -- can predict where Shell's stock will go in the next couple of months. With so many factors influencing oil prices, Shell's stock could go in any direction that oil prices go in the short term. Longer term, though, strong LNG demand, realizing the cost benefits from the BG merger, and making good on its shareholder return program would go a long way in boosting Shell's per share value. For investors, the thing to watch out for in the near term is any news or progress related to cost savings related to the Shell merger, if that goes off well, then it should help to set up that large buyback program.

waldron: Will Royal Dutch Shell Plc Ever Recover To 2570p? Photo: Royal Dutch Shell plc. Fair Use. By Peter Stephens - Tuesday, 15 March, 2016 | More on: RDSB 0 inShare Shares in Shell (LSE: RDSB) have surged by 17% in the last three months, with the rising oil price being a key reason behind this. Of course, there’s still a long way to go before the price of black gold and the price of Shell reach their previous highs. In the case of Shell, its shares reached 2,570p in May of last year, which is their 10-year high. For them to hit that level again, they would need to rise by 54% from their current level. On the one hand, this could be achieved before the end of the year if the company’s share price continues to rise at the same pace as it has done in the last three months. While this is entirely possible, it seems unlikely, since the price of oil may not increase at a rapid rate. That’s simply down to a major imbalance between demand and supply, which is showing little sign of rapidly reversing over the short term. As a result, Shell’s comeback is likely to be a more gradual affair, although one that’s very much on the cards. A key reason for this is the company’s low valuation, which provides significant upward rerating potential. For example, Shell trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 12.2 and so for its shares to trade at 2,570p, it would require a rating of 18.8. While high, this isn’t unreasonably so, which means that even with Shell’s financial year 2017 profitability assumed to continue over the medium-to-long term, a share price of 2,570p is achievable. Size matters Of course, Shell’s net profit is unlikely to flatline in the long run. That’s at least partly because there’s the prospect of a higher oil price as the current level becomes uneconomic for a number of producers. On this front, Shell has a major advantage. Due to its size and scale, Shell should be able to maintain and even gain market share over the medium-to-long term as higher-cost producers struggle to survive. This should allow it to maximise profitability and with it having the potential to engage in future M&A activity, Shell also has the capacity to boost its financial performance through acquisitions due to a strong cash flow and modestly leveraged balance sheet. Therefore, Shell’s P/E ratio may not need to rise to as high as 18.8 in order for its shares to reach 2,570p. However, if the company is able to deliver upbeat profit growth, then a rising rating could be the end product as investor sentiment improves. Clearly, Shell’s future is highly dependent on the price of oil and realistically, for its shares to hit 2,570p once more, the price of oil will need to move higher. However, even if it doesn’t, Shell has the financial firepower to become a more dominant player within the oil and gas space, which should lead to greater profitability and a higher share price in the long run. As such, buying Shell now seems to be a sound move. Of course, Shell isn't the only company that could be worth buying at the present time. With that in mind, the analysts at The Motley Fool have written a free and without obligation guide called 5 Shares You Can Retire On.

Register or Sign in, and we will email you when we have news on them. by Sean Butters on Mar 02, 2016 at 08:00 Income star tips Shell to yield 20% over two years Chris White, Premier Asset Management’s head of UK equities, argues a reversal in oil sentiment could push Shell (RDSb + Add to favourites ) to yield the best part of 20% over the next two years. Although the Citywire AAA-rated manager of the Premier Monthly Income + Add to favourites fund is wary of jumping the gun on calling the bottom of the oil price, he does believe the end is in sight. ‘Oil price weakness could continue for another couple of months,’ said White. ‘However, it is a supply problem rather than a demand one. Saudi Arabia and the Opec nations will eventually get their act together and reduce supply, and the price will probably start to recover in the second half of this year,' he said. While admitting that the price could slide further, ultimately White sees it recovering once oil production is constrained. ‘Market equilibrium should be restored, and if this happens, we will see a very sharp bounce in the oil price. If all the producers tighten supply by 2%, then the oil price will rocket – along with the share price,’ he said. ‘Considering all the shorts in under-pressure oil companies, why shouldn’t the oil price move like a share price when good news comes out? All the shorts would get closed, and the price would move up remarkably fast – as much as $10 in a day and $15 in two.’ While White (pictured) admits that Shell and BP (BP + Add to favourites ), which represent Premier Monthly Income weightings of 5% and 2% respectively, have both suffered more damage than he initially expected, he remains confident on their future prospects, particularly Shell’s. ‘The market is challenging my assumption that Shell will maintain its dividend,’ he said, referring to fears the oil major may be on the brink of its first cut since 1945. ‘The market is wrong.’ ‘I have been a little bit surprised by how much BP and Shell share prices have fallen. I thought they would have been held up by their dividend yield – I wasn’t expecting Shell to drop this far. ‘But [the speculation] has been overdone. My core belief is that Shell will keep its dividend yield for the rest of the year, and there is a reasonable chance that it will next year as well. If that is the case, then Shell shares are cheap and will yield the best part of 20% over the next two years.’ In the 12 months to 31 December, Premier Monthly returned 9.5% versus a UK Equity Income average of 6.46%, while in the five years to December-end the performance was 66.6% versus the peer group’s 56.8%.
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.
supermarky: The last 2 major falls in the rdsb share price (from peak to tough) were £10.00 or there abouts. We are currently roughly £8.00 down from highs. Make of that what you will.
