I sent a direct email to Ben after last weeks update, mainly about their glass half empty reporting and buyback mindset - surprisingly I got a reply from one of his team - will talk to them next week. Will update the board on any discussion.

Response from shell;

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you for your frank email to our CEO and for being a Shell shareholder. We have with our Powering Progress strategy carefully outlined how we will be successful in the ongoing energy transition. This will continue over the coming decades and we are currently implementing our strategy with pace. The Permian asset was a core asset in Upstream and the divestment was a commercial based decision optimising the value of the asset. It was not linked to the energy transition, but an opportunistic value driven decision. It was also well received in the market.

Our capital framework carefully balance shareholder distribution, debt and capital investments. We have as part of that a progressive dividend policy where we increase our dividend per share by 4% per year, subject to Board approval. Share buybacks – especially when the share price is relatively low – allow us to manage the absolute dividend outflow and hence make the progressive dividend policy sustainable. The Permian divestment reduces the cash inflow of the Company on an ongoing basis, so it is rationale to use the proceed on share buybacks and hereby reduce the absolute dividend burden.

I am happy to discuss your ideas on communication in a call. It is probably more fruitful than a dialogue via emails.

These are 2 of my best-performing FTSE 100 investments in 2021

Manika Premsingh | Friday, 31st December, 2021 |
.

Among my stock market investments this year, those that have stood out are the FTSE 100 oil biggies BP (LSE: BP) and Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB). No points for guessing why. Oil stocks are classic cyclicals. Such stocks are those where demand is sensitive to where we are in the economic cycle. So when the economy is in doldrums, as we saw in 2020, the oil price crashes. And during times of recovery, it picks up. This time around, perhaps even more so. The economic slowdown associated with the pandemic also brought all travel to a halt. As a result, there was a big impact on these stocks. It was natural then, that as the recovery ensued, oil prices rallied and along with that, these stocks’ prices.
More upside to come?

I do not think that we have seen all the upside to these stocks that we are going to. Think about this. We are still under the cloud of the pandemic. Travel remains restricted and consumers are being cautious too. Once these trends are behind us, I think we could see even higher oil demand. Also, continuing economic recovery will increase oil demand. This could further boost both BP and Shell’s financial performance.







Their improved finances could, in turn, result in higher dividends. These stocks boasted fairly high dividend yields pre-pandemic. But at present, they are nowhere near the highest dividend-payers. BP’s current dividend yield is 4.7% and Shell’s is 3.7%. These are not bad and are higher than the FTSE 100 average yield of 3.5%. But they are far from the 10%+ levels seen for the highest yielders. However, I am optimistic that their yields could rise.

Moreover, these stocks offer me a nice hedge against inflation. The UK’s inflation is on a tear and is expected to remain so through next year. Many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks could be impacted by this as their costs increase. But the oil giants are on the right side of inflation. They are actually beneficiaries from it. So, even if other stocks in my portfolio suffer, these can offer a stabilising impact.


What I’d do now

The big risk to oil stocks is another lockdown in 2022. If another variant of coronavirus emerges, who knows what could happen next? And if the last two years have taught us anything, it is to expect the unexpected. But I have to make my investment decisions based on the most predictable outcomes that I can see, and not on outlier events. Based on these, both oil stocks look quite good to me for at least the foreseeable future. Considering that their share prices are still below pre-pandemic levels, I think I am going to add to my holdings of these stocks in early 2022.

Shell Changes: What Should Investors Do?

Royal Dutch Shell is proposing to turn its back on the Netherlands and create a single share class in London, but what does that mean for investors?

James Gard

16 November, 2021 | 3:32PM


UK investors wanting to trade shares in Royal Dutch Shell have for years been faced with the dilemma of which one to choose. Unusually, the company trades on the FTSE 100 with two tickers, and is the only stock to do so.

But many would struggle to explain the difference. Now, under plans put forward by the oil major, these two share classes could become one as the company ditches the “Royal Dutch” and moves its headquarters to London. The move comes just weeks after activist investor Third Point revealed plans to split Shell up, though it hadn't specifically proposed this latest course of action.

The current set-up is quite complex and the aim is to simplify this.

At the moment, Shell trades under tickers “RDSA” and “RDSB”, with the “A” shares subject to a 15% tax on dividends imposed by the Netherlands; “B” shares don’t, and are the ones usually favoured by UK investors, and trade at a (modest) premium to the A shares.(The A shares, on November 16, were at £17.05 and the B shares stood at £17.09.)

“A” shares pay out in euros and “B” shares in pounds sterling, although the figure quoted is $0.24 for the latest quarter. By having a single pool of ordinary shares, Shell hopes to speed up its plans to buy back shares, which is one of the planks of its post-pandemic appeal to shareholders.

This matters a lot for income investors because Royal Dutch Shell pays out billions to shareholders like DIY investors, funds and pensions. In 2020, Shell cut its dividend for the first time since World War II, but has been trying to play catch-up since with raised dividends and share buybacks. Buybacks reduce the number of shares in issue, with the aim of boosting the share price, and are currently in fashion among large FTSE income payers like WPP and Unilever. We wrote about the trend in our recent top FTSE dividend round-up and we plan to cover the topic in more detail this week.

Climate Pressure

More dramatic changes than a tidying up of the share structure are afoot.

As the name suggests, Royal Dutch Shell has roots in the Netherlands and UK. Its headquarters is currently in The Hague but the shares are listed in Amsterdam and London. Under the plans, Shell will have its HQ in London, while its chief executive and chief financial officer will move here too from the Netherlands. Crucially, Shell will move its tax residence to the UK, where ministers have received the news as a “vote of confidence” in British business.

Unilever, another company with Anglo-Dutch roots, threatened to go in the opposite direction and shift its base to the Netherlands – but reversed this after a backlash from big UK shareholders. The Dutch government is understandably not delighted by the news, describing it as an "unwelcome surprise".

Cynics might say Shell’s decision is not unrelated to the legal pressure the company is under in the Netherlands, where a court ruled its emissions cutting targets are not strict enough.


As Morningstar oil analyst Allen Good explains, though, this move is “unlikely do anything to shield the company from recent lawsuits over emissions”--such is the global nature of the oil business and international treaties on carbon emissions. Companies of Shell’s size can’t use regulatory arbitrage even if the option was there.

What should investors in Shell do?


Naturally, they will be asked to vote on the proposal, which requires at least 75% of shareholders to support it to go ahead.


Morningstar’s Good says the proposals won’t have an impact on the company’s valuation. It retains its no-moat rating – downgraded from narrow – and has a 3-star rating.

Shares have risen 35% this year as oil prices have soared, but Morningstar still values them at £19.40, above the £17 level they are trading at now.

Shell claims a simpler structure will help make its climate transition progress smoother, but Good says the move is unlikely to have any meaningful impact.

Berenberg on Shell stays at 'buy' on Shell after 'strong' Q2 numbers


Analysts at Berenberg reiterated their 'buy' recommendation for shares of Royal Dutch Shell following the outfit's second quarter numbers.


The day before, the oil major delivered a "strong" set of results and cash flow numbers, on the back of higher commodity prices , recovering retail sales and strong chemical margins.

Indeed, its $14.2bn of cash flow was second-highest ever recorded.

Hence Shell's decision to raise its dividend payout and restart share buybacks.

Furthermore, Berenberg expected the company's Integrated Gas division trading results to bounce back in the second half on continued strength in the market environment.

Looking out to the medium-term, it was possible that the company would need to increase its capital expenditures in order to maintain its guidance for 4% growth in its dividend yield, the broker's analysts conceded.

Nonetheless, for now "the improved dividend yield, rising earnings and strong FCF looks attractive, with the stock trading on 8x 2021E P/E. We reiterate our Buy rating."

Berenberg hiked its target price for Shell's shares from 1,570.0p to 1,720.0p.

Can the Shell and BP share prices recover after underperforming the FTSE 100?
By Robert Stephens, CFA 10 June 2021
2 mins. to read

Robert Stephens, CFA, discusses the outlook for the UK’s two oil majors after a disappointing year.

The performances of BP (LON: BP) and Shell (LON: RDSB) have been hugely disappointing over the past year. While the FTSE 100 index has surged by around 10%, the share prices of the two oil and gas majors are down by 12% apiece.

A key reason for their underperformance of the index could be concerns about their reliance on fossil fuels. Covid-19 appears to have accelerated the trend towards cleaner forms of energy, as well as increasing the popularity of ESG investing.

Oil and gas prospects

However, the prospects for the oil and gas industry may be more positive than the share price performances of Shell and BP would suggest. Certainly, demand for oil and gas will decline over the coming decades, as major economies, including the UK, target net-zero emission targets. However, in the short run, the outlook for oil and gas could be encouraging for two reasons.

First, the global economy is widely forecast to deliver strong growth in 2021 and 2022. According to the IMF, it is expected to grow by 6% this year and 4.4% next year. Historically, oil prices have been positively impacted by buoyant economic performance. The asset may even become more popular among investors who are searching for an inflation hedge should economic growth cause a rapid rise in the price level.

Second, the adoption of cleaner forms of energy is likely to be an evolutionary process, rather than a revolution. There is no guarantee that current targets, which are ambitious in many cases, will ultimately be met. Indeed, the International Energy Agency (IEA) forecasts that demand for oil will be 4.4% higher in 2026 than it was prior to the pandemic. Alongside this, the shift within the energy sector from fossil fuel to low-carbon assets may mean that the supply of oil is somewhat limited. This could have a positive impact on its price.

Attractive valuations

Shell and BP have ambitious strategies to pivot towards low-carbon assets over the long run. In reality, the cost, returns and ultimate success of those plans is likely to remain a known unknown for a prolonged period.

They could provide investors with high and sustainable returns over coming decades. Or they may leave both companies crippled with high levels of debt and asset bases that offer lower returns than have been previously available via fossil fuel assets. In this latter scenario, the ability of the two companies to deliver dividends or share price growth could be severely limited.

However, the valuations of the two stocks suggest that investors are factoring in a period of financial difficulty and risk as they embark on their strategy shift. Shell has a price-to-book ratio of 0.9 and a dividend yield of 3.5%, while BP trades at just a 20% premium to net asset value and offers a dividend yield of 4.8%.

These figures suggest that the two stocks offer wide margins of safety that may not reflect their potential to deliver improved financial performance should the oil price rise in the likely global economic recovery. They may also price in a failure to pivot towards low-carbon assets that does not materialise. As such, they could offer good value for money on a risk/reward basis relative to other FTSE 100 stocks in the current bull market.
