G'day, French friends, try not to take offence:- Short RDSA @ 1502, 20/4/20. Car not used for a month, when started, battery almost dead, a clue? Should have done the bizz @ £20, too slow. It will recover in time, point is when do I close? Jun 11? Doubt it? Divi, all large Co's were encouraged, in order to retain balance. Or face a bailout, which public would end up paying? Quoting experts from various Investment outfits, does not suit. Not really sure of their agendas? My posn held for now.

Https://247wallst.com/energy-business/2020/05/02/goldman-sachs-has-its-top-oil-stocks-to-buy-ahead-of-a-second-half-recovery/ Goldman Sachs Has Its Top Oil Stocks to Buy Ahead of a Second-Half Recovery Lee Jackson May 2, 2020 6:46 am The biggest story during the collapse on Wall Street earlier this year was of course the COVID-19 pandemic. This brought on an instant recession with lightning speed. The battle over oil dominance that erupted between Russia and Saudi Arabia over oil production helped to further slash benchmark pricing for West Texas Intermediate and Brent Crude by more than 70% at one point this last week. The energy sector had another ugly turn recently when the front month oil futures contract for May, that expired in mid-April, actually traded negative, as traders were forced to sell at a loss because those holding contracts on expiration have to take physical delivery. With no storage space available, that brought a torrent of selling with no bids. In this doom and gloom environment, who wants to buy oil stocks now? The analysts at Goldman Sachs have raised their hands. In a recent report, the analysts at Goldman Sachs noted that the unprecedented drop in demand is giving investors a chance to buy energy stocks at very cheap levels. The team has a list of 24 oil stocks they feel will benefit the most from a recovery. Goldman Sachs even sees oil demand ramping back up by the end of June, and they also see low prices forcing more domestic production shut-ins. The analysts listed five specific reasons in the research report why investors should be looking at the wounded energy sector now. Oil prices are at/below cash costs Shut-in announcements are becoming material Demand appears to be at trough Valuation near 25-year lows on Enterprise Value/gross cash invested The Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEArca: XLE) ETF had risen handily despite bad micro/macro news in recent weeks We screened the 24 stocks the analysts are recommending for a recovery rebound, and picked five that are Buy rated, and also have retained their dividends. This is an important metric as Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE: RDS-A) slashed the company’s dividend for the first time since World War 2 this week. Energy stocks have been battered and bruised for longer than most memories can easily recall. And despite the “ESG” theme dominating before the bull market ended, and even with many investors simply refusing to invest in oil companies supposedly at any price, it is almost impossible to fathom that April’s great stock market gains had energy stocks leading the way with the greatest gains. Even after such huge gains, oil and gas stocks may have a place as value stocks beyond acting as value traps. Chevron This integrated leader is a safer way for investors looking to get positioned in the energy sector. Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) is a US-based integrated oil and gas company, with worldwide operations in exploration and production, refining and marketing, transportation and petrochemicals. The company sports a sizable dividend, and has a solid place in the sector when it comes to natural gas, and LNG. Chevron recently became the latest major oil company to slash spending after halting its $5 billion-a-year share buyback and halving spending in the Permian Basin, which means a large decrease in projected output from America’s biggest shale region. The California-based oil giant said it’s lowering projected 2020 capital spending by 20%, or $4 billion. The Permian will account for the largest single element of that reduction, translating into 125,000 fewer barrels of oil equivalent per day than previously forecast, a quantity equal to about 2.5% of the basin’s total current production. Currently shareholders are paid a hefty 5.45% dividend, which the analysts feel comfortable will remain at current levels. The Goldman Sachs price target is posted at $89, which compares to a current consensus target across Wall Street of $90.62. The last Chevron trade Thursday was reported at $92 down almost 3%. ConocoPhillips This company may offer solid upside potential and just gave investors a massive dividend increase back in February. ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) explores for, produces, transports, and markets crude oil, bitumen, natural gas, liquefied natural gas, and natural gas liquids worldwide. The company’s portfolio includes resource-rich North American tight oil and oil sands assets; lower-risk legacy assets in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia; various international developments; and an inventory of conventional and unconventional exploration. Conoco posted solid earnings per share for the first quarter of $0.45 which beat consensus. Many analysts see the delta on lagged realizations, lower operating expenses and taxes as solid positives. Shut-in plans are increased for May and expanded to June as a response to the oil price collapse. Investors are paid a sensible 3.98% dividend. The Goldman Sachs price target for the company is $38, which compares to the Wall Street consensus price target of $46.83. ConocoPhillips was last seen Thursday at $42.10. Goldman Sachs Has Its Top Oil Stocks to Buy Ahead of a Second-Half Recovery Lee Jackson May 2, 2020 6:46 am EOG Resources This leading energy company is another top pick across Wall Street. EOG Resources, Inc. (NYSE: EOG) is one of the largest independent exploration and production companies operating in the United States, Canada, Trinidad, the United Kingdom and China. Despite some rough going over the last quarter, in February the company did post adjusted fourth quarter EPS of $1.35, which beat consensus of $1.17 on better realizations, lower operating expenses and Depreciation, depletion, and amortization. In addition, EOG had $440 million of free-cash-flow generated after dividends. Shareholders are paid a 3.14% dividend. The price target at Goldman Sachs is posted at $58, while the consensus price target on Wall Street for the shares is set slightly higher at $59.68. EOG Resources closed trading on Thursday at $47.51. Marathon Petroleum This company is a solid way for more conservative accounts to play the energy sector. Marathon Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: MPC) is currently one of the largest independent petroleum refining and marketing companies in the United States. The company operates approximately 2,750 retail sites under the Marathon and Speedway brands. In addition, Marathon Petroleum operates a logistics network of pipelines, barges, trucks and terminals that store and transport crude and products. Despite a plan to spin-off Speedway, the company announced in late February a plan to invest $550 million in the chain. The investment will focus primarily on converting convenience stores the company added to its portfolio through several acquisitions over the past two years — notably, its strategic combination with San Antonio-based Andeavor in the fall of 2018 — to Speedway’s branding and systems The company bought rival Andeavor for $23.3 billion in the biggest-ever deal for an oil refiner that created the largest independent fuel maker in the U.S. Following the deal, Marathon became the largest operator of refining capacity in the US and management believes the company can achieve the $1 billion in synergies. Shareholders are paid a robust 7.02% dividend, but this one does have the potential to be trimmed.. The Goldman Sachs price target is posted at $31 while the Wall Street consensus is set much higher at $46.14. The shares closed Thursday at $32.08.

ENERGYVOICE Analysts see wisdom in Shell’s ‘iconic’ dividend cut by Mark Lammey 01/05/2020, 6:00 am Shell cut its dividend for the first time since World War Two yesterday in an move that further highlights the severity of the latest oil sector downturn. Chief executive Ben van Beurden said the decision to reduce the dividend by 66% to 12.8p (16c) per share was “iconic” and would be “painful”; for shareholders. Mr van Beurden added no company boss wanted a dividend cut on their track record, but that long-term market uncertainty meant the move was “clear and obvious” for Shell, whose profits plummeted in the first quarter. He acknowledged that Shell would “probably̶1; have to make headcount reductions, while deferred projects could eventually be cancelled. Analysts said the dividend cut was “prudent”; and would help free up cash as Shell tries to adapt for the energy transition. Two weeks ago, the Anglo-Dutch company revealed plans to become a net-zero emissions business by 2050. David Barclay, head of office at Brewin Dolphin Aberdeen, said Shell had taken the “right step” to “strengthen its financial position and cut costs during a very difficult time”. Tom Ellacott, senior vice president with Wood Mackenzie’s corporate analysis team, described the move as “sensible̶1; in the face of “huge uncertainty”. Mr Ellacott said: “A permanent dividend reset could also accelerate the strategic pivot to ‘Big Energy’ through the reinvestment of more retained earnings in the youthful zero-carbon energy sector.” “Shell’s dividend cut has thrown down the gauntlet to the supermajors,” he added. Shell’s “A” class shares fall nearly 11% to £13.25, wiping more than £10 billion off its market value. Biraj Borkhataria, analyst at RBC Europe, said: “Clearly the decision would have not been taken lightly by the board, however this is a positive move over the long term in our view. “The move will allow Shell to pivot more easily through the energy transition, and not be tied to a £11.9bn ($15bn) dividend to service each year.” Shell has implemented a number of measures to bolster its balance sheet, including halting its share buyback programme and identifying billions of pounds worth of savings in response to the oil price collapse. Offshore UK, Shell has delayed its Shearwater-Fulmar gas line re-plumb, along with the final investment decisions for its Jackdaw development and the Cambo project, operated by Siccar Point Energy. However, Mr van Beurden said such steps didn’t go far enough, which meant the firm had to “do something on the shareholder distribution side”. The annual dividend pay-out will fall to an “affordable and meaningful” £4 billion, from £11.9bn previously. Freeing up £8bn will “take care of a whole range of uncertainty”, Mr van Beurden said, adding: “What’s bugging me most is the uncertainty.” Chief financial officer Jessica Uhl said Shell anticipated a “deeper and longer recession”, with commodity prices and demand not recovering until 2022-23. First quarter revenues totalled £48 billion, down 28% year-on-year, but Shell managed to stay in the black during the reporting period, posting pre-tax profits of £500m. That figure pales in comparison to the £7.5bn of profits chalked up in Q1 2019. CCS earnings attributable to shareholders excluding identified items, Shell’s preferred performance measure, came in at £2.3bn, down 46% year-on-year.

You would have thought that at times such as these, when a source of cheap energy is just what world recovery needs, the gaff would be blown on nonsense which artificially depresses its use. Yet here we are, and I hesitate to call them idiots, with the Shell and BP. bigwigs undertaking to follow the 'Garbage In, Garbage Out' flawed models of the IPCC. q.v. the Paris accord where their defect was openly identified. You don't need to be an expert to realise that CO2 is not the cause of climate change so why do they persist in adding to this deluge of fake news? Sure, exhaust fumes, no different from the waste products of almost all processes, are toxic in excess. Also, dependency on fossil fuel is to be minimised for geo-political reasons. But to deliberately set out to deny the utility of your principal product is a plain dereliction of duty to shareholders. Now is the time to break ranks and point out just how absurd it is to claim that a component making up three or four parts in 10,000 of the atmosphere out ranks another, a thousand times more numerous, in climatic effects. It does nothing remotely comparable with the versatility and energy intensive transformations of water. Are the directors making sure this subterfuge is being handled in shareholders' interests, are we being paid enough to keep us quiet? No doubt they are.

Shell's mostly strong Q1 results a 'sideshow' to dividend reset, analysts say Apr. 30, 2020 10:13 AM ET|About: Royal Dutch Shell plc (RDS.A)|By: Carl Surran, SA News Editor Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A -11.7%) plunges at the open after reporting better than expected Q1 earnings, but taking center stage is the dividend reset, "given the risk of a prolonged period of economic uncertainty, weaker commodity prices, higher volatility and uncertain demand outlook." Bernstein analyst Oswald Clint says strong earnings, free cash flow and gearing reduction are a "sideshow" to the dividend news, and with a three-notch downgrade likely, Shell always was going to have the toughest decision to make on the dividend. Q2 will not provide any respite for Shell, with the company's outlook particularly weak across divisions, says Clint, who rates the stock at Market Perform. UBS analyst Jon Rigby regards the dividend cut as a surprise and bigger than expected, but otherwise sees strong results led by Integrated Gas, and production rose 12% Y/Y on lower maintenance and ramp-ups in Trinidad & Tobago and Australia; Rigby rates the stock as a Buy. Credit Suisse's Thomas Adolff notes Shell was able to lower net debt by $4.7B leaving gearing post at 28.9% vs. 29.3% in Q4, and says it will be interesting to see whether other oil super-majors will follow Shell's lead on dividend cuts, this quarter or next.

Oil Rises on Hopes for Demand Recovery Print Alert By Amrith Ramkumar Oil prices advanced in volatile trading on Thursday, lifted by hopes for a rise in fuel consumption as lockdown measures to stop the coronavirus are rolled back. U.S. crude for delivery in June rose 12% to $16.85 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, extending a recent stretch of wild swings. The benchmark started the year above $60 but has crashed with the coronavirus eroding fuel demand. A similar contract for delivery next month crashed to minus $37.63 a barrel on April 20, the first time in oil-market history futures have turned negative. When such contracts expire, the holders must either take delivery of barrels of oil in Cushing, Okla., or sell them. Whoever was left holding them likely couldn't find available storage amid the glut, forcing them to sell and driving prices well below $0. The contract expired on April 21 after rebounding to positive territory. As a result of the negative pricing and oversupply, many investors and commodity funds no longer want to hold oil to be delivered soon. Instead they want crude for delivery several months from now, lowering trading in near-dated futures and driving big swings in both directions. There are now more July futures contracts outstanding than contracts for June delivery, a shift that normally would have taken place closer to May 20, the day June futures expire. On Thursday, the July futures rose 9.1% to $20.86 a barrel. The gains came with some states in the U.S. easing lockdown measures and followed Wednesday data showing a recovery in gasoline consumption last week. Demand is also expected to rebound in China after its economy shut early in the year to fight the pandemic. Investors are also looking ahead to global supply cuts set to take effect Friday. In addition to those coordinated output reductions, some companies are being forced to shut in productive wells because prices have fallen so much. Production cuts in oil, on purpose or by default, come at a time when demand probably has nowhere to go but up," Phil Flynn, senior market analyst at the Price Futures Group, said in a note. Brent crude futures for delivery in July, the most actively traded global benchmark of prices, rose 9% to $26.41 a barrel on the Intercontinental Exchange on Thursday. A contract for June delivery rallied 12% to $25.23 on its final day of trading. Brent futures track the price of seaborne crude, relying on an index calculated by ICE. Many analysts expect prices to remain volatile, especially with many investors and exchange-traded funds selling near-dated oil futures and buying contracts for crude to be delivered several months from now.

Dividend cut is a massive long term benefit and will see shell recover quicker and easier than BP in my opinion. BP might regret not following shell's example. Positive news.
