Thursday 13 December 2018 3:42pm FTSE dividend payments to hit record £94bn next year and yields boosted by market drop Share Callum Keown Reporter at City A.M. covering markets and exchanges, pharmaceuticals, science, [..] Show more Follow Callum Markets Nervous Amid Fears FTSE 100 dividend payments set to reach record high (Source: Getty) FTSE 100 dividend payments could hit record highs of £94bn next year while falling markets have increased yields, tempting investors and keeping the index stable amid political uncertainty. A difficult autumn for the markets with shares falling has seen the forecast dividend yield for the blue chip index rise to 4.9 per cent for 2019, according to AJ Bell. The investor platform’s analyst Russ Mould said the “tempting̶1; yields would provide support for UK stocks among the “maelstrom of political uncertainty.” Housebuilder Taylor Wimpey could offer the highest yield of 13.1 per cent, followed by coal and steel miner Evraz - 12.1 per cent - and Persimmon at 11.8 per cent. Barratt Developments could return yields of 9.6 per cent, as three housebuilders appeared in the top ten of AJ Bell’s analysis. Mould said: “Such a fat yield looks extremely tempting compared to the Bank of England’s 0.75 per cent base rate for cash and the 1.23 per cent yield on benchmark UK ten-year Gilt. “The presence of three house builders in the top ten is testimony to the size of their capital return programmes, but it may also hint at investor scepticism that the industry can maintain its current lofty levels of profitability without the benefit of Government assistance, via the Help to Buy and Lifetime ISA schemes.” But the research raised concerns over Standard Life Aberdeen, whose long streak of dividend increases could end next year and Vodafone, where the shareholder distribution may not grow for the first time in two decades. More than half of the £93.7bn paid out to shareholders will come from just ten firms, with Shell, HSBC, BP, and British American Tobacco accounting for 34 per cent of forecasted payments.

13/12/2018 | 7:47 PARIS (Agefi-Dow Jones) - Total's board of directors decided on Wednesday to reduce the share capital of energy giant by canceling 44.6 million treasury shares, representing 1.66% of capital. These shares were bought back between 9 February and 11 October 2018, Total said in a statement. "This transaction has no impact on Total SA's consolidated financial statements, diluted weighted average number of shares and net earnings per share," the group added. Following the cancellation of these shares, the number of shares making up the capital of Total amounted to 2.64 billion and the number of voting rights exercisable at a general meeting at 2.77 billion. The board of directors also decided on Wednesday to distribute a second interim dividend of € 0.64 per share, "identical to the first interim dividend for fiscal year 2018 and up 3.2% compared to the three installments and the balance paid for the 2017 fiscal year, "said Total in a separate statement. -Alice Doré, Agefi-Dow Jones; +33 1 41 27 47 90; adore@agefi.fr ed: VLV Agefi-Dow Jones The financial newswire

Other companies that generate decent dividends include IMB and BVS. Although I hold both, I have today reduced my holding in IMB. I added to my holding in RDSB and, following my sale in Friday of BTG purchased 2 days before it received a takeover bid (one of those lucky purchases that we all make in our investing career), I have bought shares in Adobe.... Time will tell. Adobe was purchased for capital uplift, whereas Shell for dividend income (have owned shares in Shell for 41 years).

Is Royal Dutch Shell Plc’s 6% dividend yield affordable? Could a falling oil price disrupt the dividend investing potential of Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSB) (RDSB.L)? November 26, 2018 Robert Stephens Shell (LON:RDSB) Royal Dutch Shell Plc Royal Dutch Shell Plc The oil price continues to fall, and this is leading the Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSB) (RDSB.L) share price lower in my view. It has dropped 16% in the last six months, with Brent recently moving below $60 per barrel for the first time since February 2018. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are further declines for the oil price in the short run. Investors appear to be unsure about the prospects for the world economy, and this could lead to an increasingly cautious attitude. Rising US interest rates and a stronger dollar could reduce demand growth for oil over the medium term in my view, and this may be bad news for the wider industry. Offsetting this to some degree could be geopolitical risks in countries such as Iran, Venezuela and Saudi Arabia. However, thus far, bearish views on oil are winning out, and this trend could persist. Clearly, Shell’s financial prospects are highly dependent on the price of oil. As a result, its profitability could be negatively impacted by a falling oil price, and this could squeeze the headroom that it currently has on its dividend outlook. In the current financial year, though, the company is due to have dividends covered 1.5x by EPS. This suggests to me that it could cope with a lower oil price and still yield 6%. But in terms of dividend growth, a falling oil price may mean that confidence in the future dissipates to some degree, which may lead to a more cautious dividend growth rate. With Shell seeking to rationalise its asset base and reduce leverage, I think it offers impressive long-term income investing potential. In the near term, though, further volatility in the oil price would not be a surprise to me, and this could lead to a relatively challenging period for the stock over future months.

4 top dividend shares? Vodafone Group plc, AstraZeneca plc, National Grid plc and Royal Dutch Shell Plc Do these income shares offer impressive outlooks? Vodafone Group plc (LON:VOD) (VOD.L), AstraZeneca plc (LON:AZN) (AZN.L), National Grid plc (LON:NG) (NG.L) and Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSB) (RDSB.L) October 10, 2018 Robert Stephens FTSE 100 Vodafone Group plc Vodafone Group plc The income investing prospects of Vodafone Group plc (LON:VOD) (VOD.L), AstraZeneca plc (LON:AZN) (AZN.L), National Grid plc (LON:NG) (NG.L) and Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSB) (RDSB.L) seem to be relatively positive in my view. Vodafone’s share price fall means that it has a dividend yield of over 7%. Although the company is seeing its investment-related costs increase as it bids on 5G spectrum, I think that its long-term growth prospects continue to be bright. The acquisitions it has made may strengthen its overall position, while partnerships could lead to improved competitiveness in key markets. With EPS growth expected to improve next year, I think the Vodafone share price may have investment appeal. AstraZeneca’s investment in its pipeline could lead to stronger EPS performance over the next few years. The company has been able to put in place what seems to be a stronger foundation for future growth, and this could prompt a higher valuation further down the line. With a dividend yield of around 3.7%, I think AstraZeneca remains a relatively appealing income stock. While dividend growth has been non-existent in recent years, its improving financial performance could lead to a rise in shareholder payments in future. National Grid’s dividend yield of around 6% is relatively high when compared to its recent history. This suggests to me that the stock could offer good value for money, while it may also provide a degree of defensive characteristics in case the FTSE 100 continues its recent fall. While political and regulatory risks remain high, I think that National Grid’s overall strategy is sound. Its focus on investing in its North American assets could lead to a stronger overall business in the long run. Shell’s dividend yield stands at over 5% at the moment, which suggests that the company may offer a large margin of safety. Sure, the oil price could come under pressure, and the company’s future may be uncertain. But with free cash flow set to improve and the company engaging in an asset disposal programme, I’m upbeat about its financial outlook. As a result, I feel that Shell’s dividend prospects could improve over the medium term. About Robert Stephens 4520 Articles Robert Stephens is a CFA Charterholder and an Equity Analyst by trade.

4 surprising dividend growth shares? AstraZeneca plc, Barclays PLC, Glencore PLC and BP plc Do these stocks offer upbeat dividend growth outlooks? AstraZeneca plc (LON:AZN) (AZN.L), Barclays PLC (LON:BARC) (BARC.L), Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) and BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L) September 26, 2018 Robert Stephens FTSE 100 Barclays Barclays The dividend growth outlooks of AstraZeneca plc (LON:AZN) (AZN.L), Barclays PLC (LON:BARC) (BARC.L), Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN) (GLEN.L) and BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L) could be relatively strong in my view. After a number of years without rising dividends, AstraZeneca is expected to increase shareholder payments in the next financial year. The company’s investment in its pipeline looks set to pay off, with EPS growth of 12% in 2019 being forecast by the stock market. With the company having an increasingly strong position in a number of key markets, its long-term outlook appears to be improving. A dividend yield of 3.7% may not be the highest in the FTSE 100, but AstraZeneca’s dividend growth potential seems to be high. After freezing its dividend in the last couple of years to focus on rebuilding its balance sheet, Barclays is expected to deliver strong dividend growth over the next two years. In fact, by 2019 its dividend payments are forecast to be around 170% higher than they were in 2017. This puts the stock on a forward yield of 4.5%, and suggests that Barclays could be a surprise income option in the long run. Glencore’s share price performance has been relatively disappointing of late. Regulatory concerns and a stronger dollar have caused investor sentiment to come under a degree of pressure. This means that the mining company now has a dividend yield of around 5%. In my view, this provides it with income investing appeal. Clearly, it is a relatively risky and volatile stock which lacks the resilience of some of its FTSE 100 peers. But with a P/E ratio of 9, I feel that Glencore’s risk to reward ratio is relatively appealing. BP’s financial prospects have improved significantly in recent months. A rising oil price means that the company’s EPS growth is expected to positive, although its dividend yield still stands at over 5% in spite of a share price increase. With the BP share price having a P/E ratio of around 13, I feel that it offers good value for money. Since I believe that the oil price could move higher, the stock could deliver improving dividend growth over the medium term.

Pernod Ricard SA.(RI.FR) said Wednesday that it will raise its dividend for fiscal 2018 after earnings increased, helped by a reduction in expenses. The Paris-based premium spirits company's net profit was 1.58 billion euros ($1.85 billion) in 2018, a 13% on-year increase, it said. Pernod Ricard attributed the rise to a reduction in financial expenses. Analysts had expected net profit to come in at EUR1.5 billion, according to a consensus estimate from FactSet. Pernod Ricard delivered sales of EUR8.99 billion for 2018, down 0.3% on a reported basis and just shy of FactSet's EUR9.02 billion consensus estimate. The company said sales in the fourth quarter came to EUR1.93 billion. For the current fiscal year 2019, Pernod Ricard is aiming for 5% to 7% organic growth on its profit from recurring operations. The maker of Absolut vodka and Jameson whiskey said it will pay a dividend for fiscal 2018 of EUR2.36, up 17% from the previous fiscal year.

Will Royal Dutch Shell Follow Its Peers And Raise Its Dividend? Aug. 25, 2018 1:57 AM ET| 24 comments | About: Royal Dutch Shell plc (RDS.B), RDS.A Aristofanis Papadatos Aristofanis Papadatos Oil & gas, portfolio strategy, value Aristofanis Papadatos (3,851 followers) Summary Royal Dutch Shell has not cut its dividend since World War II and is currently offering a 5.6% dividend yield. The oil major has frozen its dividend for 18 consecutive quarters. The big question is whether it will raise its dividend amid excessive free cash flows and a brightening outlook of the oil sector. Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS.A) (NYSE:RDS.B) is an oil giant that has benefited from the rally of the oil price in the last 12 months, just like its peers. However, the oil major has paid the same dividend for 18 consecutive quarters, as it froze its dividend at the onset of the downturn of the oil market that began in 2014. Therefore, the big question is whether the company will raise its dividend in the upcoming quarters. Dividend record Despite the downturn that began in 2014, Exxon Mobil (XOM), Chevron (CVX) and Total (TOT) have continued to raise their dividends, albeit at a low single-digit rate. BP (BP) followed the same path as Shell and froze its dividend for 15 consecutive quarters, but eventually raised it in the running quarter, thanks to the strength of the oil price and the brightening outlook of the oil market. Therefore, Shell is the only oil major that has kept its dividend flat for such a long period. While Shell is not a dividend aristocrat, it has an exceptional dividend record. To be sure, it has not cut its dividend since World War II. This degree of consistency is extremely rare, particularly for a cyclical stock, and is a testament to the strength of its business model and its execution. On the other hand, Shell has remarkably slowed its dividend growth rate in the last decade, as it has raised it at an average rate of only 2.7% per year. This rate is much lower than that of its American peers. Nevertheless, the current 5.6% dividend yield of Shell is much higher than the 4.1% and 3.8% yields of Exxon and Chevron, respectively. If Shell resumes raising its dividend, it will have a much more attractive dividend than its American peers. Free cash flows Just like the other oil majors, Shell is highly leveraged to the oil price. Consequently, when the oil price began to plunge in 2014, the upstream segment of Shell, which used to generate the vast majority of its total earnings (~90%), saw its earnings collapse. As a result, the earnings of Shell in 2015 and 2016 came out 87% and 75% lower, respectively, than those in 2014. In addition, the free cash flows of the company plunged and hence they were insufficient to fund its dividend. However, thanks to the production cuts of OPEC and Russia, and the drastic investment cuts of all the oil producers during the downturn, the oil market has eliminated its supply glut and has become much tighter this year. As a result, the oil price has enjoyed a strong rally since last summer and is now trading near a 3.5-year high. This rally has resulted in a great rebound of the free cash flows of Shell, which have bounced from -$1.5 B in 2016 to $14.8 B in 2017 and $8.9 B in the first half of this year. Hence the free cash flows of Shell have increased so much that they can easily cover the approximate $13 B in annual dividends. It is remarkable that Shell recently surpassed Exxon in annual operating cash flows ($35.7 B vs. $30.1 B) for the first time in about two decades. Moreover, thanks to the recent fierce downturn of the oil sector, Shell has greatly improved its efficiency. It has reduced its operating expenses by 35% in the last four years while it has focused on investing in high-quality oil reserves, with markedly low breakeven prices. Furthermore, the company expects more than 700,000 barrels/day from projects that will start up this and next year. Overall, thanks to the strength in the oil price and expected production growth, the management of Shell expects the free cash flows to hover around $30 B per year during 2019-2021. Such a level can easily cover not only the current dividend but also meaningful hikes in the upcoming years. Management has noticed the excessive cash flows and recently initiated a 3-year share buyback program worth $25 B. Moreover, it has turned off the scrip dividend and thus it now pays the dividend only in cash, not in shares anymore. These two moves reflect the confidence of management in the brightening outlook of the company. As long as the oil price remains strong, which is the most likely scenario, the next move of the company will be to raise its dividend. Final thoughts After a fierce downturn in its sector, Shell has emerged stronger, with its free cash flows reaching all-time high levels. This is an outstanding achievement, as the price of oil is still about 30% lower than it was before the downturn that began in 2014. This performance confirms that Shell utilized the downturn in a highly productive way by cutting its expenses and investing only in high-return growth projects. Thanks to its excessive free cash flows and its exciting prospects, the oil giant has turned off its scrip dividend and has initiated a gigantic buyback program. The next move in its shareholder distribution policy will be to raise its dividend. Investors should expect a dividend hike in the upcoming quarters.
