sarkasm: ON LEE WILD SIDE Home BP downgraded; 'buy' Shell By Lee Wild | Thu, 20th October 2016 - 14:33 Share this There's really been very little to separate BP (BP.) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDSB) this year, certainly in terms of share price performance. Both are up around 40%. But, while the third-quarter is not typically a needle-mover for the industry, profits this year will be pretty grim, and one analyst has been crunching the numbers for London-listed oil majors. When results come in during the next week or two, oil & gas analysts at UBS expect the European sector to report third-quarter earnings down 28% year-on-year in dollar terms. In the US it's 52%. However, given how close the sector is to breakeven earnings, the declines look worse than they are, and the broker predicts a 22% quarter-on-quarter increase in net income this side of the pond. That said, while oil prices were flat on the second quarter, they have almost doubled since January to over $52 a barrel. Brent crude is up 13% in just three weeks, and hopes are high that OPEC and the Russians can agree production cuts in Vienna next month. US stockpiles have also fallen. Share prices have followed suit, however, and BP is up 41% since early June to its best levels in over two years. Shell has surged by three-quarters from less than £13 to over £22. And that does mean valuations are now "less distressed," so investment opportunities are "less obvious," according to UBS. BP now trades on about 14 times earnings per share (EPS) estimates for 2017, in line with European majors. "We are lowering our rating on BP to 'neutral' from 'buy' after strong share price performance, retaining our disciplined approach to target multiples that has largely served us well this year," writes the broker. graph 1 However, UBS ramps up its price target to 500p from 445p to reflect an oil price estimate of $60 a barrel. This target implies a dividend yield of 6.5%, suggesting share price upside if oil prices exceed $60 and capital expenditure intensity "is sustainably driven downwards". Shell is still rated a 'buy', with price target raised from 2,100p to 2,250p. "We believe the potential for cost reduction at Shell is greater and the quality of the development/pre-development portfolio is higher," says UBS, "but we are less convinced of the focus to drive these through than at its closest peers; hence the two balance off." A strategy day in New York on 8 November could be the next catalyst, with American investors given an update on some of the big local issues.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. The five companies in question offer stunning dividend yields, have fantastic long-term potential, and trade at very appealing valuations. As such, they could deliver excellent returns and provide your portfolio with a major boost in 2016 and beyond.

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.

15:31
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.
