grupo guitarlumber: Https:// Conclusion It has been rather surprising that investors are getting another opportunity to acquire Royal Dutch Shell shares at under $30, especially since the era of negative oil prices sits in the rear-view mirror. Whilst the road ahead may not be perfectly smooth, following this analysis and the share price sliding down lower in the last month, I believe that upgrading my rating from Bullish to Very Bullish is appropriate.

waldron: Nigeria seeks $1.1B advance from Eni, Shell in oilfield corruption case Sep. 9, 2020 10:58 AM ET|About: Eni S.p.A. (E)|By: Carl Surran, SA News Editor Nigeria's government asks a Milan court to order Eni (NYSE:E) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A, RDS.B) to pay nearly $1.1B as an immediate advance payment for damages related to alleged corruption linked to the companies' 2011 purchase of the OPL 245 offshore oilfield. A lawyer for the Nigerian government calls for the advance payment ahead of a broader damages package to be set by the court at a later date. Prosecutors allege ~$1.1B of the $1.3B purchase price was siphoned off to politicians and middlemen, half of it to former Nigerian oil minister Dan Etete. Etete, Eni, Shell and the managers accused in the Milan court case, including Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi, all deny any wrongdoing. In a recent post on Seeking Alpha, Daniel Thurecht maintained a bullish rating based on "the prospects of a higher share price when operating conditions recover and not because they are a desirable dividend investment."

the grumpy old men: Royal Dutch Shell vs BP: which oil stock would I buy now? Stuart Blair | Wednesday, 2nd September, 2020 | Oil stocks have significantly underperformed the market this year. Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) has fallen around 54%, while its counterpart BP (LSE: BP) has seen a drop of around 47%. Nonetheless, with Brent Crude now priced above $45, investing in oil stocks looks a far more attractive proposition than it did a couple of months ago. As a result, are BP and Royal Dutch Shell buys at their current prices, and which one is the best pick? Royal Dutch Shell Second-quarter earnings for the oil major were understandably very poor. In fact, after an impairment charge of $16.8bn, net income came to a loss of $18.1bn. On the face of it, these earnings paint a very gloomy picture. As such, it’s clear why the Shell share price has fallen nearly 20% since. Nevertheless, upon further inspection of the earnings, there are a number of positives to take away. For example, on an adjusted earnings basis, the oil stock actually made $638m. While adjusted earnings exclude one-off items and can potentially just ignore all the ‘bad stuff’, it’s still a great sign to see the company making a good profit in this challenging quarter. It also had positive cash flow of $243m. Although this does not cover the dividend as yet, I’m still encouraged that it’s in positive territory. This was mainly the result of the company reducing capital expenditures. Consequently, with average oil prices under $30 for the second quarter, I feel the worst may be over for Shell. With third-quarter results due at the end of October, a significant improvement could therefore be met with a sharp increase in the share price. BP After both cutting its dividend and announcing further investment into renewable energy, BP shares have fallen 13%. Of course, this does reflect the fact that the oil stock made an underlying loss of $6.7bn. Even so, the news has not been all negative for BP. For example, the firm has managed to strengthen its finances by issuing $11.9bn in hybrid bonds. Net debt has also been reduced by over $10bn since the first quarter, and this has subsequently seen gearing reduce by 3% to 33%. This contrasts with Shell, where net debt increased by $3bn following the first quarter. Despite the dividend cut, BP also has a greater dividend yield than Shell. In fact, the dividend is currently yielding around 6%, and there is no indication of a further cut. Instead, management has stated that once BP’s balance sheet has been deleveraged, it can start to return more money to shareholders through share buybacks. Which oil stock would I buy? Sitting at prices of 1,085p and 260p respectively, both of these oil stocks look very good value. As a result, I’ve actually invested in both Shell and BP, in anticipation of an oil recovery. If I were forced to choose just one however, I believe that BP offers the most upside potential. Although its transition to greener energy could hit profits in the short term, I think its long-term strategy should help its recovery prospects. Stuart Blair owns shares in Royal Dutch Shell and BP.

gibbs1: Hot weather sends natural gas prices surging WTI remains above $41 as it stays in narrow price band By Mella McEwen, Reporter-Telegram Published 5:55 pm CDT, Friday, August 7, 2020 West Texas Intermediate eked out a small gain this week, remaining above $41 a barrel as it continues to be stuck in a narrow trading band. West Texas Intermediate eked out a small gain this week, remaining above $41 a barrel as it continues to be stuck in a narrow trading band. Natural gas prices, however, saw strong gains this week, starting with a 30-cent jump Monday that put it over $2.10 per Mcf on the New York Mercantile Exchange. That was followed by a 9-cent gain Tuesday, then prices slumped lightly Wednesday and Thursday before gaining 7 cents Friday to close at $2.24 per Mcf. That’s well above the $1.80 Mcf at last Friday’s close. “NYMEX Henry Hub posted substantial gains on August 3 and 4 due to an easing of storage availability fears, excessive heat in June and July and more of the same expected in August and signs of strengthening LNG export demand,” Midlander Mike Banschbach, an oil gas, and natural gas liquids marketing consultant, told the Reporter-Telegram by email. “However, prices in the Permian were tempered by the rising basis between Waha and Henry Hub, resulting in a modest 15 cent per MMBtu gain in Waha prices for the fourth quarter.” Banschbach said that if crude prices creep up above $45 a barrel later in the year, prompting Permian producers to drill and complete wells, that will result in more natural gas – associated with the crude production – being put in the market and that will put downward pressure on the Permian natural gas price. WTI on the NYMEX reported three days of gains this week, putting it above $42 a barrel Wednesday before prices slumped the final two days of the week. WTI fell 73 cents to close at $41.22 per barrel Friday, up from $41.04 at Monday’s close. The posted price ended the week at $37.75 a barrel. Bloomberg reported that crude prices were weakened by renewed tensions between the U.S. and China, which the news service said rattled markets already reeling from uncertainty over a new round of economic stimulus to help the economy through the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Bloomberg, crude is testing the upper bound of its recent trading range after hitting a five-month high this week amid shrinking U.S. stockpiles. But taking the wind out of any sustained breakout rally is the spotty recovery in oil consumption, with crude imports into China shrinking in July. Roger Diwan, vice president, financial services at IHS Markit, said in a market assessment that prices are emerging “bruised and battered from the worst of the COVID-19 outbreak” and are now at a delicate point as prices transition to what his company calls Phase II of its three phased of market recovery. The second phase is the “just-in-time” phase in which surplus inventories are being worked down in parallel with rising supplies as spare supply capacity returns from the OPEC+ alliance and North American producers. “The record cuts set in motion in May and June by Saudi Arabia and its OPEC+ partners played a pivotal role in accelerating the improbable rebalancing of global oil markets. With demand recovering from April lows and after giving markets an extra month to find their footing, these exporters have now moved from managing the immediate surplus of the crisis towards managing the recovery,” Diwan wrote in his assessment. “The recent display of restored harmony among OPEC+ heavyweights Saudi Arabia and Russia illustrates that the strategic debate within the group over price levels and market share has time to run,” he wrote. “As long as prices hold in the current range, demand concerns will likely help keep the agreement on course. When prices surpass $50 a barrel, potentially lifting capital spending in the United States higher, that is when changes to the tenor of the discussion, and the divergence of interest could start to play out.”
waldron: Ian Lyall 11:23 Tue 10 Mar 2020 Follow Ian on: viewRoyal Dutch Shell Shell has financial wherewithal to defend dividend, says UBS “Respecting and sustaining the dividend in cash and not reverting to scrip is an important input into the quality of the payout, in our view,” UBS added Royal Dutch Shell - UBS reckons Royal Dutch Shell PLC (LON:RDSA) will be able to defend the dividend through the current period of “cyclical weakness” having spoken the oil giant's investor team in the wake of Monday’s plunge in the oil price. In a pre-arranged meeting, Shell’s team said there was around US$4bn flexibility in the company’s sustaining capital expenditure (capex), which means it is cash neutral into the “US$40s” a barrel oil price range. That’s still well above the current Brent spot price of just over U$$37 a barrel. However, the Swiss bank reckons “modest disposal activity and some balance sheet capacity” will help defend the Shell dividend. “Respecting and sustaining the dividend in cash and not reverting to scrip is an important input into the quality of the payout, in our view,” UBS added. Shell and its UK rival BP (LON:BP.) saw their share prices shattered on Monday after the Saudi Arabia-led OPEC cartel started flooding the market with cheap oil. It followed a stand-off with Russia, which refused to cut production in order to get the price up. At one point the price of a barrel of crude oil was down 30% in a bloody session. In late morning trade, the Shell share price had rebounded just over 11%. BP, the most leveraged of the super-majors, was up 8%. Proactive

waldron: Royal Dutch Shell: No Need To Worry Over Proven Reserve Life And Dividend Remains Safe Despite Soft Fourth Quarter Results Feb. 5, 2020 8:57 AM ET | About: Royal Dutch Shell plc (RDS.A), RDS.B Daniel Thurecht Daniel Thurecht Long-term horizon, contrarian, oil & gas, industrials (2,246 followers) Summary Unfortunately for shareholders in Royal Dutch Shell, results for the fourth quarter of 2019 were quite soft and thus saw their share price sink near 5% at one point. Although their shrinking reserve life is not an ideal situation, there are two main reasons why this is not as concerning as it may initially appear. Management is taking sensible actions with their capital allocation through keep capital expenditure low and slowing their share buybacks. These steps should help ensure their cherished dividend payments continue well into the future, although their prospects for future dividend growth is minimal at the moment. Introduction Recently the European oil and gas giant, Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) (RDS.B), reported results for the fourth quarter of 2019. Unfortunately for shareholders these results saw net income fall 83% year on year and thus were not received particularly well by the market, sending the share price down nearly 5% at one point. This article provides my commentary on several key topics and the outlook for shareholder returns. Reserve Life One concerning aspect that has been mentioned was their sixth consecutive decline in their proven oil and gas reserve life, which now stands at only approximately eight years. Whilst this is certainly not an ideal situation, there are a couple of reasons why it is not as alarming as stating that their “…status quo on reserves would put it out of business in eight years” indicates. The first reason being that this assumes a zero reserve replacement ratio, which history indicates is very unlikely to eventuate. During the last three years their reserve replacement ratio has on average been 48% or 90% if the impacts of acquisitions and divestitures are excluded. If an investor assumes the lower reserve replacement ratio of 48% will continue going forward, this indicates that their reserves would actually last approximately twice as long. Naturally the thought of their reserves actually lasting sixteen years does not sound nearly as alarming and thus indicates they have considerably more time to address this issue. Whilst their future reserve replacement ratio may differ, considering this occurred during a period of industry wide reduced exploration expenditure and was heavily impacted by divestitures, it seems realistic to assume that this could continue at least in the medium-term. Personally I believe their reserve replacement ratio that excludes the impacts of acquisitions and divestitures is a more suitable way to view their performance as inorganic decisions such as these can work in either direction, which leads into the second reason. Providing they maintain a strong financial position and thus access to capital markets they should be able to acquire reserves in the future as necessary or alternatively further diversify their earnings into other areas, such as renewable energy. Cash Flows, Capital Expenditure Guidance & Dividend Coverage Although the headline figures indicating that their operating cash flow decreased from $22.021b in the fourth quarter of 2018 to only $10.267b for the equivalent time period of 2019 sounds dramatic on the surface, the underlying situation was not nearly as severe. If the impacts of working capital changes are removed from both results, their operating cash flow only decreased slightly from $12.9b to $12.3b. Considering the pressure they are currently facing from not only weak oil and gas prices but also downstream margins, it was reassuring to see capital expenditure guidance towards the lower end of their $24b to $29b range. This is a positive indicator for their capital allocation as it should strike an appropriate balance between ensuring their financial position remains healthy without underinvesting in their future. Their dividend coverage for the fourth quarter of 2019 was not particularly strong with their operating cash flow of $10.267b only leaving $2.307b for dividends after paying for capital expenditure, investments in joint ventures and associates, net interest expense and dividends to non-controlling interests. This only provided dividend coverage of 61.93% as their dividend payments of $3.725b left a shortfall of $1.418b, however, due to divestitures totaling $2.081b this shortfall was not funded through debt. Whilst this quarter was not stellar, I still maintain that their dividend remains safe as was further discussed in one of my previous articles. Nevertheless their share buybacks totaling $2.848b where clearly partly funded through debt, which as subsequently discussed are being reduced in the short-term. Future Buyback Outlook The next tranche of their share buybacks to is be completed by the 27th April 2020 and will not exceed $1b, which is significantly less than the $2.848b that were repurchased during the fourth quarter of 2019. When considering the current macroeconomic backdrop it should come as little surprise that they are slowing the pace of their share buybacks. This indicates that management is making sensible capital allocation decisions that should help ensure their financial position remains secure and thus their cherished dividend payments continue flowing even if times get tougher. Future Dividend Outlook Given the current gloomy situation for their underlying commodities as well as their desire to further deleverage and complete their share buyback program, it seems safe to assume that their dividend will be remaining static for a while longer. Considering their dividend yield sits at virtually 7% as of the time of writing, this is not necessarily problematic as going forward shareholders can theoretically still earn a modest return in this low interest rate world even if their share price only trends sideways. Conclusion The softness of their earnings should have been mostly expected given the underlying industry conditions that they unfortunately have zero control over. Thankfully it appears that their management is making sensible capital allocation decisions to ensure their core business and cherished dividend payments continue well into the future. Although as a shareholder I would naturally prefer to see stronger results, volatility is par for the course in this industry and thus nothing contained within these results causes me to alter my bullish rating.

It has global operations with its headquarters in The Hague, Netherlands and has a registered office in London, United Kingdom. As a company, it is often referred to simply as Shell. In the present, it is the second largest energy company in the world and fifth largest company overall. As a gas and oil company, its activities include exploration of gas and oil reservations, production, refining, and distribution of oil around the globe. It is also a company that dabbles in petrochemicals, power generation, and trading. With the current trend of renewable energy in response to climate change, the company has been involved in biofuels, hydrogen, solar and wind power. As a business, the company is registered in the stock market as RDSA and RDSB. These are the classifications of shares wherein each share is a share of the company. Both shares have identical rights but have different characteristics. For example, RDSA is associated with the original Royal Dutch Shell Company. It is Dutch listed and complies with the Dutch tax system. For people who have these kinds of shares, there is a Dutch withholding tax on the shares divided on the rate of 15-25 per cent. This is in accordance with the Divide Access Mechanism that the company imposes on its company shares. Also, the default currency to pay the dividends is in Euros, the currency adopted by the Dutch government. Both RDSA and RDSB shares are traded in three stock exchange centers – London, Amsterdam, and New York. The RDSA shares also have control of the 57 per cent of the company. The shareholders do not have voting power in the company, but they receive the assets before the other shareholders of RDSB in case of a bankruptcy. On the other hand, the shareholders of RDSB are associated with Shell Transport and Trading, the company’s shipping arm which is based in London, United Kingdom. Since Shell Transport and Trading is a company in itself, thus it is listed as a United Kingdom company and has shareholders of its own. As a British company, it is under the tax system of the United Kingdom. With respect to the Divide Access Mechanism of the company, these shares don’t have withholding tax since these shares are U.K.-sourced dividends. The company should prove to the Dutch tax inspectors that these shares are sourced directly from U.K. income. RDSB controls the remaining 43 per cent of the company’s total shares and pays in pound sterling (the U.K.’s currency) when it comes to pay dividends. Also, shareholders of RDSB have voting power in the company but cannot receive assets until the RDSA shareholders get their share of the assets in a bankruptcy scenario. Summary: 1.RDSA and RDSB shares differ in the location where they are listed – RDSA is formerly of the original Royal Dutch Shell Company of the Netherlands while RDSB is previously associated with Shell Transport and Trading, a U.K.-based company and a subdivision of Royal Dutch Shell. 2.At the present, the RSDA has a higher percentage of the company with 575 while RDSB controls only 43 per cent. 3.RDSA is listed in the Netherlands with a withholding tax on dividends of 15-25 per cent while RDSB is a U.K.-sourced dividend under the company’s Divide Access Mechanism. 4.The default currency to pay dividends for RSDA is the Euro (the Dutch currency) while the pound sterling (the U.K.’s currency) is for the RDSB. 5.RDSA shareholders have no vote but have immediate access to assets in case of a company bankruptcy while RDSB shareholders have voting power but have to wait for their assets in the same scenario.
