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.

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

sarkasm: Investors Retreat From Oil Firms in Sign of Rising Skepticism share with twitter share with LinkedIn share with facebook share via e-mail 0 02/24/2020 | 03:49pm GMT By Sarah McFarlane Major oil companies are working hard to articulate a vision for their future, but the energy sector's poor performance shows that many investors aren't buying it. Companies including Royal Dutch Shell PLC, BP PLC and Total SA have launched plans to turn themselves into lower-carbon businesses. But with low oil prices pressuring the industry's economics and many investors saying it is too early to know whether the intended transformations will generate significant returns, there is growing skepticism on Wall Street over the sector's future. "Just saying that you're going to start a transition doesn't mean you're going to be successful at it," said Fabiana Fedeli, global head of fundamental equities at Netherlands-based Robeco Institutional Asset Management B.V. Major oil companies have limited room to maneuver after last year's lower oil and gas prices hit earnings -- and there is no relief in sight with oil prices down 16% since the start of the year after the coronavirus curbed demand. Energy companies are also under pressure from an expectation that U.S. shale's ability to quickly adjust supply will cap prices over the longer term. The uncertainty has made investors skeptical about whether companies can boost profits and transform through new investments while paying out hefty dividends. Energy has been the worst-performing sector of the S&P 500 for the past decade. "Valuations are telling us that investors are losing confidence in the oil and gas sector," said Nick Stansbury, head of commodity research at the U.K.'s largest asset manager Legal & General Investment Management. In December, the initial public offering of Saudi Arabian Oil Co., known as Aramco, mostly attracted domestic and regional investors. Many institutional investors outside the country passed on the world's largest listing, finding it too expensive, people involved in the IPO said. In another blow to the sector, some investors say some companies' transformation plans don't go far enough. On Shell's latest earnings call last month, Chief Executive Ben Van Beurden made almost as many references to the energy transition and the company's small low-carbon businesses as he did to oil and gas. But Sarasin & Partners LLP, a U.K. asset manager, sold around 20% of its stake in Shell last summer, expressing displeasure with the company's plan to increase fossil-fuel output over the next decade, in an open letter to Shell's chairman. "We were extremely disappointed that, despite your public commitment to act on climate change, [Shell] aims to deliver rising fossil fuel production to at least 2030. We do not view this as aligned with the Paris agreement," the letter said. The company has invested $2.3 billion in what is known as new energies, including wind and solar power, since 2016. Over the same period, it spent about $35 billion on its traditional business of exploring for, and producing, oil and gas. Shell's share price has fallen by about 25% in the past year. Another sign that oil stocks are falling out of favor: The dividend yields of companies including Shell, BP, Exxon Mobil Corp. and Norway's Equinor ASA have been rising. The higher yields are partly the result of falling stock prices. Some companies, including BP and Equinor, have raised their dividends in recent weeks. While shareholders benefit from high dividends, the companies' ability to maintain or raise dividends is at risk if oil and gas prices remain low and keep earnings under pressure. Most energy companies pride themselves on preserving their dividends. Exxon has increased its dividend annually for the past 37 years. Shell hasn't cut its dividend since World War II. "Lowering the dividend is not a good lever to pull if you want to be a world-class investment case so [we're] not going to do that," said Shell's Mr. Van Beurden. Last year, the weighting of oil-and-gas companies in factor-based indexes -- which enable investors to add exposure to particular attributes of a stock, such as growth and value -- fell in every category, including yield, value and profitability, according to data from global index provider FTSE Russell. Shrinking company valuations also meant the proportion of energy stocks in the S&P 500 fell to 4% in January, its lowest in at least three decades, having peaked at over 14% in 2009. Investors have also stopped rewarding the energy sector for amassing reserves of crude, in a sign that climate concerns are altering the way markets value oil companies. A study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that investors view undeveloped crude reserves as a reason to discount a company because of the risk that climate policies will curb future oil demand and leave some resources permanently underground and worthless. "I definitely think there will be some resources left in the ground from a carbon-footprint perspective," said Eldar Sætre, CEO of Norway's energy giant Equinor, speaking to The Wall Street Journal at a recent event in London.

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.

grupo guitarlumber: ROyal Dutch Shell Shell third quarter 2017 interim dividend 02/11/2017 7:05am UK Regulatory (RNS & others) TIDMRDSA TIDMRDSB ROYAL DUTCH SHELL PLC THIRD QUARTER 2017 INTERIM DIVID The Board of Royal Dutch Shell plc ("RDS") today announced an interim dividend in respect of the third quarter of 2017 of US$0.47 per A ordinary share ("A Share") and B ordinary share ("B Share"), equal to the US dollar dividend for the same quarter last year. RDS provides eligible shareholders with a choice to receive dividends in cash or in shares via a Scrip Dividend Programme ("the Programme"). For further details please see below. Details relating to the third quarter 2017 interim dividend It is expected that cash dividends on the B Shares will be paid via the Dividend Access Mechanism from UK-sourced income of the Shell group. Per ordinary share Q3 2017 RDS A Shares (US$) 0.47 RDS B Shares (US$) 0.47 Cash dividends on A Shares will be paid, by default, in euro, although holders of A Shares will be able to elect to receive dividends in pounds sterling. Cash dividends on B Shares will be paid, by default, in pounds sterling, although holders of B Shares will be able to elect to receive dividends in euro. The pounds sterling and euro equivalent dividend payments will be announced on December 7, 2017. Per ADS Q3 2017 RDS A ADSs (US$) 0.94 RDS B ADSs (US$) 0.94 Cash dividends on American Depository Shares ("ADSs") will be paid, by default, in US dollars. ADS stands for an American Depositary Share. ADR stands for an American Depositary Receipt. An ADR is a certificate that evidences ADSs. ADSs are listed on the NYSE under the symbols RDS.A and RDS.B. Each ADS represents two ordinary shares, two A Shares in the case of RDS.A or two B Shares in the case of RDS.B. In many cases the terms ADR and ADS are used interchangeably. Scrip Dividend Programme RDS provides shareholders with a choice to receive dividends in cash or in shares via the Programme. Under the Programme shareholders can increase their shareholding in RDS by choosing to receive new shares instead of cash dividends, if approved by the Board. Only new A Shares will be issued under the Programme, including to shareholders who currently hold B Shares. In some countries, joining the Programme may currently offer a tax advantage compared with receiving cash dividends. In particular, dividends paid out as shares by RDS will not be subject to Dutch dividend withholding tax (currently 15 per cent), unlike cash dividends paid on A shares, and they will not generally be taxed on receipt by a UK shareholder or a Dutch shareholder. Shareholders who elect to join the Programme will increase the number of shares held in RDS without having to buy existing shares in the market, thereby avoiding associated dealing costs. Shareholders who do not join the Programme will continue to receive in cash any dividends approved by the Board. Shareholders who held only B Shares and joined the Programme are reminded they will need to make a Scrip Dividend Election in respect of their new A Shares if they wish to join the Programme in respect of such new shares. However, this is only necessary if the shareholder has not previously made a Scrip Dividend Election in respect of any new A Shares issued. For further information on the Programme, including how to join if you are eligible, please refer to the appropriate publication available on www.shell.com/scrip. Dividend timetable for the third quarter 2017 interim dividend Announcement date November 2, 2017 Ex-dividend date RDS A and RDS B ADSs (Note 1) November 16, 2017 Ex-dividend date RDS A and RDS B shares November 16, 2017 Record date November 17, 2017 Scrip reference share price announcement date November 23, 2017 Closing of scrip election and currency election (Note 2) December 1, 2017 Pounds sterling and euro equivalents announcement date December 7, 2017 Payment date December 20, 2017 Notes Note 1: The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), with effect from September 5, 2017, reduced the standard settlement cycle in accordance with the SEC amendments to Exchange Act Rule 15c6-1(a). Under these rules, regular settlement will occur on a T+2 basis for trades occurring on or after the SEC's implementation date of September 5, 2017. As a result RDS A ADSs and RDS B ADSs traded on the NYSE markets will now settle in line with RDS A shares and RDS B shares traded on European markets, who moved to a T+2 settlement basis for trades in 2014, resulting in the same ex-dividend date for RDS A shares, RDS B shares, RDS A ADSs and RDS B ADSs. Record dates will not change. The timings of these in relation to the third quarter 2017 interim dividend are reflected above, resulting in a change to the ex-dividend date for the RDSA and RDS B ADSs from the timetable previously communicated on November 1, 2016. Note 2: Both a different scrip and currency election date may apply to shareholders holding shares in a securities account with a bank or financial institution ultimately holding through Euroclear Nederland. This may also apply to other shareholders who do not hold their shares either directly on the Register of Members or in the corporate sponsored nominee arrangement. Shareholders can contact their broker, financial intermediary, bank or financial institution for the election deadline that applies. A different scrip election date may apply to registered and non-registered ADS holders. Registered ADS holders can contact The Bank of New York Mellon for the election deadline that applies. Non-registered ADS holders can contact their broker, financial intermediary, bank or financial institution for the election deadline that applies. Taxation - cash dividends Cash dividends on A Shares will be subject to the deduction of Dutch dividend withholding tax at the rate of 15%, which may be reduced in certain circumstances. Based on a policy statement issued by the Dutch Ministry of Finance on April 29, 2016 (which has been formalised in law with effect from January 2017), and depending on their particular circumstances, non-Dutch resident shareholders may be entitled to a full or partial refund of Dutch dividend withholding tax. As from 2018, Dutch and non-Dutch resident shareholders who are exempt from corporate income tax may elect for an exemption from Dutch dividend withholding tax instead of requesting a refund if tax was withheld. Furthermore, in April 2016, there were changes to the UK taxation of dividends. The dividend tax credit was abolished, and a new tax free dividend allowance introduced. Dividend income in excess of the allowance is taxable at the following rates: 7.5% within the basic rate band; 32.5% within the higher rate band; and 38.1% on dividend income taxable at the additional rate. If you are uncertain as to the tax treatment of any dividends you should consult your own tax advisor. Royal Dutch Shell plc The Hague, November 2, 2017
