First quarter interim dividend for 2021 Payments of dividends in sterling On 27 April 2021, the Directors of BP p.l.c. announced that the interim dividend for the first quarter 2021 would be US$0.0525 per ordinary share (US$0.315 per ADS). This interim dividend is to be paid on 18 June 2021 to shareholders on the share register on 7 May 2021. The dividend is payable in cash in sterling to holders of ordinary shares and in US dollars to holders of ADSs. The board has decided not to offer a scrip dividend alternative in respect of the first quarter 2021 dividend. Dividend reinvestment plans have been made available for this dividend for ordinary shareholders and ADS holders (subject to certain exceptions) to receive additional bp shares. Sterling dividends payable in cash will be converted from US dollars at an average of the market exchange rate over the three dealing days between 3 and 7 June 2021 (GBP1 = US$1.41441). Accordingly, the amount of sterling dividend payable in cash on 18 June 2021 will be: 3.7118 pence per share.

I have also filtered the rude person who couldn’t even spell my monicker! There are many investors in this stock with different aims ... three common themes (for holders who are long) will be: those wishing to clawback losses from their pre-Covid holdings, those lucky/brave enough to invest when the share price was in the £2.00-£2.50 range who also seek capital growth and income investors (like me) who are looking for decent returns and share price stability (albeit at a higher level than the share price is now). Dollar weakness is diminishing dividend returns (and this is likely to continue) whilst the reduction in debt and buy backs have yet to drive the share price upwards. Perhaps patience is the key but even Looney acknowledges that dividend growth needs to be on the agenda.🤷R05;♂️

Quite a few of us , myself included are here for the capital gain or potentially. Dividends is just a bonus on a 1 year horizon. There does seem to be an obsession on dividends however.

I'm pretty sure as of next year dividend increase will be forthcoming this year is all about share buybacks and debt reductions so a little more patience required

Whats the desperation around the divi, BP have better uses for the cash than to hand it out, there's a transition underway away from endless man made pollution of the earths atmosphere and that needs to be paid for.

Notbitcoin ... the divi is falling as the dollar exchange rate falls, buybacks have nothing to do with it and aren’t influencing the share price as other fundamentals are in play. The divi needs to be increased ASAP to help the s/p. 🤷‍a94;️

ihsmarkit.com/research-analysis/germany-pledges-10-billion-for-hydrogen-projects-by-shell-bp-t.html Climate and Sustainability Research & Analysis Germany pledges $10 billion for hydrogen projects backed by Shell, BP, Total, others 04 June 2021 Cristina Brooks Majors BP and Shell, utilities like Vattenfall and RWE, and chemical refiners like BASF, Linde, and Dow all are likely to benefit from promised German state funding for 62 hydrogen projects. Their projects are due a share of over €8 billion ($9.73 billion) in German state and federal funds announced jointly by Germany's Federal Ministry of Economics and Federal Ministry of Transport on 28 May. An additional €20 billion ($24 billion) in backing for projects is set to come from private investors and other sources so that funding levels reach an expected €33 billion ($40 billion). Germany's funding for the projects is contingent on the outcome of an application for EU State Aid law exemptions under the EU's Important Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI) program. The EU put out a call for proposals to regional companies to join a hydrogen IPCEI in December.

BP haven’t declared this quarter’s dividend in sterling yet but at 1.41 exchange rate it’s likely to be a paltry 3.72p per share ... there is the problem right there the dividend is simply too low.🤷‍♂️

Is Royal Dutch Shell Stock a Buy? Shell had a solid plan for the future. Or at least it did until things got a little more complicated. What should investors do now? Reuben Gregg Brewer (TMFReubenGBrewer) Jun 4, 2021 at 11:25AM Author Bio Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS.B) is one of the largest integrated energy companies on Earth. That has put it in the crosshairs of environmentalists looking to take on global warming. The company has started to do something about this issue, but it may not be enough to satisfy detractors. That could make life much more difficult for Shell and its shareholders. The big change Shell made the very difficult decision in 2020 to cut its dividend by a huge 65%. There were two reasons why the giant energy company took this step. First, drilling for oil requires a lot of capital investment, and at the time weak oil prices were making it difficult to fund spending needs. Second, the company announced plans to alter the makeup of its business, shifting toward growth in cleaner energy businesses and reducing its emphasis on oil. A smiling person in front of wind turbines. Image source: Getty Images. That second announcement was notable, as it meant that Shell had heard what investors, governments, and environmentalists were saying about reducing carbon and it was taking action. Some of its peers, notably Chevron and ExxonMobil were, and for the most part still are, dragging their feet on this front. Shell's goal is to get to net zero carbon by 2050, with interim goals of a 20% reduction by 2030 and a 45% reduction by 2035. There are a lot of moving parts to this plan, but it entails reducing oil production, increasing natural gas exposure, and ramping up investment in renewable energy. Shell is not new to the clean energy space either, so it has some expertise to build off of. The goals seem reasonable, but there's one key thing investors have to remember -- the oil business, though shrinking, is helping to fund the transition to a cleaner future. A wrench in the gears Everything seemed lined up for Shell. It had even gotten back to increasing its dividend, now having raised it twice since the cut. That was meant as a sign to investors that the company was financially strong and could be trusted to address clean energy concerns and maintain a growing dividend over time. Based on shareholder proxy voting, investors appeared pleased with the direction the company was heading. Then Shell lost a court case in Europe around its environmental impact. TOT Dividend Per Share (Quarterly) Chart TOT Dividend Per Share (Quarterly) data by YCharts The big takeaway from the case is that Shell was told to increase the pace of its clean energy transition. The court mandated target for carbon emission reduction was 45% by 2030. That pushes forward the 2035 goal by five years, but means more than doubling the carbon reduction originally planned for 2030. This is a massive change. The company responded by outlining the steps it has taken so far and plans to take in the future. And by saying it will appeal the decision. That is the logical step for Shell, but investors need to consider what happens if it loses this fight. Most notably, it will likely have to divest more oil assets to meet the court's mandate. That means less revenue to support the shift toward clean energy. In turn, this will probably lead to increased use of the balance sheet to fund the transition. That is not an ideal solution. What to do about it? At this point, nothing is likely to happen in the near term. However, investors looking for a long-term energy investment might want to step back here and rethink how they go about putting their money to work. This isn't to suggest that Shell is a bad company, only that the court loss raises the risks for this energy company in an unpredictable way. The best alternative right now is likely Total (NYSE:TOT), which is going down a similar clean energy path, has maintained its dividend, and has shareholder support for its transition. Alternatively there is BP, but the company's 2020 dividend cut and high leverage compared to peers are issues that some may, justifiably, find concerning. That said, be prepared, if Shell does end up losing this fight, it is likely that other energy names will find themselves facing similar problems down the line.
