tornado12: Shell is a sin stock like Tabacco for the rest of this decade. The share price is not sustainable without the support from attractive dividends. So the idea to believe we will reach 30 or 40 GBP in my opinion is not realistic. The true reward is sustainable dividends in region of 6% with strong FCF, balance sheet to cover this return. I have never seen BB give 50%+ boost to the share price .. look at ABRDN and AVIVA as excellent examples in the last few years.....Buying 25% of your stock and still dont improve the share price... ABRDN is still buying back and its share price is a disaster. There needs to be shareholder activist pressure on Shell BOD to shake up and wake up
loganair: I understand the way share buy backs are done is that a company gives its brokers a certain amount of cash then tells the broker to just buy back the shares which the broker does irrespective of the share price or how high the share price goes. The higher the oil price, the more money an oil company makes and therefore the higher the share price. What I would like to see is for Shell to keep this cash until the oil price falls, then the share price will fall then to buy back the shares.
loganair: When it comes to share buy backs I would like the management to say for example they'll only buy back share when the share price is below £20. The higher the oil price, the higher the share price, the more money that Shell needs to pay to buy back the same number of shares, therefore better to wait for the oil price to drop as it does ever now and then, the share price drops then for Shell to come into the market to buy back more share shares at the same cost to Shell.
sarkasm: proactive Jamie Ashcroft 07:53 Thu 28 Jul 2022 Shell reveals 154% rise in Q2 income amid soaring fuel prices Shell intends reinvest in windfall - alongside a US$6bn share buy-back - to secure new energy supplies that "the world needs today". Shell PLC - Shell reveals 154% rise in Q2 income amid soaring fuel prices Shell PLC (LSE:SHEL, NYSE:SHEL) second quarter results, as expected, revealed the full heft of its earnings in the current environment of high oil and gas prices – with income attributable to shareholders reaching just over US$18bn for the second quarter, up from US$7.1bn in the prior three-month period. Year-on-year it represents a 154% rise, versus what now reads as a paltry US$3.42bn. Cash flow from operations came in at US$18.6bn for the three months ended June 30, and, free cash flow was marked at US$12.4bn. Reported at US$23.1bn adjusted earnings was up 22% year-on-year, whilst statutory earnings (EBITDA) totaled US$11.4bn which was a 26% improvement on last year’s second quarter. Shell lifted the lid on a number of investment programmes aimed at delivering new gas supplies – with projects in the UK (the Pierce and Jackdaw fields), Australia (Crux off Western Australia), Qatar (LNG expansion) and a new hydrogen hub in the Netherlands (Holland Hydrogen 1). It said capex for 2022 will be between US$23bn to US$27bn. “We are using our financial strength to invest in secure energy supplies which the world needs today, taking real, bold steps to cut carbon emissions, and transforming our company for a low-carbon energy future,” said chief executive Ben van Beurden. “And, crucially, our ‘powering progress’ strategy is delivering strong results for our shareholders on the back of years of portfolio high grading, combined with robust operational performance.” Shell today launched its latest share buy-back programme, to repurchase a further US$6bn of equity before October 27 (when it will report on its third quarter).
charggg: Every oil majors is up 1% plus including bp and no volume in Shell. Until activist investors get on top of Shell's shareholder list and force change, Shell will be just a job factory for inefficient layers of management who are too desperate to please the greenies. Let's hope more shareholders force management change and break up Shell and get rid of useless departments. Doesn't make sense for share price to be 20% below pre pandemic highs. Only Shell and bp are the two majors who are down on pre pandemic highs. Bp obviously had a big $25bn write down in Russia so makes sense why their share price is lagging. What excuse does the management of Shell has?
xxxxxy: Shareholder support for Shell PLC's energy transition strategy fell to nearly 80% at the British oil major's annual general meeting on May 24, as the share of votes against the plan almost doubled compared to 2021.The strategy, which outlines Shell's pathway to reducing emissions and achieving net-zero by 2050, received 88.74% support last year, when it appeared on the ballot for the first time as an advisory vote. Since then, Shell lost a landmark court case in the Netherlands forcing it to cut emissions more sharply.A rival shareholder motion from Dutch activist investor Follow This, aimed at speeding up Shell's emissions cuts in line with the Paris Agreement on climate change, also received a smaller share of the vote in 2022, with 20% of shareholders in support compared to 30% last year.The meeting in London was delayed by over two-and-a-half hours after more than 80 climate activists interrupted the start of proceedings. The activists chanted over Shell Chair Sir Andrew Mackenzie's attempts to begin the event, before gluing themselves to chairs and eventually being removed by police.Mackenzie welcomed the rights of shareholders and the public to voice their messages and pursue their beliefs, saying that is why Shell had put its energy transition strategy to a vote for the second year running."The core disagreement is not whether the Paris Agreement should be achieved, or even when, it is only how the world achieves it," Mackenzie said in his closing remarks. "Today's voting results on our energy transition resolution indicate that we appear to be on the right track."'Everybody loses'For Follow This, which has filed multiple shareholder motions at Shell since 2016, the voting result in 2022 represents the first time that support for its campaign has fallen year over year. The activist's first motion six years ago garnered support from 2.7% of shareholders, and its share of the vote has grown steadily since then.In 2017, after support for the Follow This resolution more than doubled in a year, Shell became the first oil major to set a target to reduce emissions produced by the company's products, known as Scope 3, which account for the vast majority of oil companies' emissions.Mark van Baal, founder of Follow This, said investors voting at the 2022 AGM had bought into Shell's narrative that Russia's invasion of Ukraine overrides the necessity to tackle climate change."Today's voting results are a loss in the fight against the climate crisis," van Baal said in a statement. "Today, everybody loses except the board of Shell, who will hang on to fossil fuels investments for another year and continue to fuel the climate crisis with their outdated business model."Follow This, whose campaign has contributed to the record number of environmental shareholder resolutions up for votes in the 2022 proxy season, has suffered similar setbacks at other major oil and gas producers in Europe and North America this year....

waldron: Where next for Shell shares after Q1 results? Shell shares fell by 59% at the start of 2020 to 933p by October 2020. And despite recovering to 2,253p today, the FTSE 100 oil major remains just shy of its pre-pandemic value. Charles Archer | Financial Writer, London | Publication date: Monday 09 May 2022 16:07 Despite sky-high oil and gas prices, and repeated share buybacks, Shell (LON: SHEL) shares still remain tantalizingly close to complete pandemic recovery. Shell share price: Q1 results Shell recorded a $9.13 billion profit, describing its performance as ‘strong results in volatile times.’ However, this does not quite do the FTSE 100 oil major justice: this was its highest-ever quarterly profit, up 45% from the $6.3 billion it made in Q4 2021, and nearly triple the $3.2 billion profit it made in the same quarter last year. Shell also increased its dividend by 4% to $0.25 per share, bought back $5.4 billion of shares, and plans to buy back a further $4.5 billion in the current quarter. In H2, it expects shareholder distributions to be ‘in excess of CFFO.’ And boasting a cash flow of $14.82 billion, it also reduced its net debt from $52.6 billion to $48.5 billion in just three months. CEO Ben van Beurden enthused that ‘strong earnings and cash flow, coupled with maintaining a healthy balance sheet and continuing the disciplined delivery of our strategy, are crucial for Shell to play a leading role in the energy transition.’ However, he warned that the Ukraine war has ‘caused significant disruption to global energy markets and has shown that secure, reliable and affordable energy simply cannot be taken for granted.’ The company took a $3.9 billion hit as it continues to exit interests in Russia, including from the country’s first offshore LNG project at Sakhalin-2, as well as its stake in Nord Stream 2. However, this sum is far smaller than the $24.4 billion absorbed by competitor BP as it offloads its 19.75% stake in Rosneft. Where next for Shell shares? There are four factors to consider, assuming oil and gas prices remain elevated. First is the growing global abandonment of Russian fossil fuels. Van Beurden has warned that a complete ban on Russian gas would be a ‘major disaster’ that would leave a ‘supply hole’ in Europe. But with the UK and US committed to cutting off Russian energy, political pressure on the G7 and EU to push through a complete ban is intensifying. Second is Shell’s commitment to invest between £20 billion and £25 billion into the UK over the next decade. 75% of this money will be spent on green tech such as EV charging points, with the rest assigned to oil and gas development, including in the North Sea. For perspective, it only made $344 million from renewables in Q1. Shell is also ‘very close to making a few major investment decisions on hydrogen in Northwest Europe,’ including plans for a 200MW green hydrogen electrolyser in Rotterdam. And having already switched on a smaller unit in China, Van Beurden believes Shell is the ‘ones who are making most (hydrogen) progress on the ground… our lead position we currently have may well triple or quadruple in the next few months or quarters to come.’ This isn’t just a soundbite; Shell recently spent $1.5 billion acquiring India-based green hydrogen company Sprng Energy. Third is input from activist investor Dan Loeb’s Third Point, which has again increased its $750 million stake. The fund thinks that trying to ‘do it all,’ is leaving Shell trading ‘at a large discount to its intrinsic value.’ It continues to apply pressure in an attempt to break the company up into its constituents. Finally, despite government hesitation, Shell could soon be hit by windfall taxes. Rivals BP, Total Energies, and Norway’s Equinor have all also reported sharp rises in underlying profits while consumers are drowning in energy bills. Both BP’s and Shell’s CEOs have confirmed that windfall taxes would be unlikely to change current investment plans. However, Van Beurden warns that they would still have to make ‘economic sense.’ And further, he’s cautioned that ‘these types of investment levels, they do require a stable and predictable financial outlook, it does require stability of policy.’ With average energy bills already up 54% to £1,971 per year, Cornwall Insight is predicting a further 35% rise in October. Scottish Power CEO Keith Anderson has already called for a £1,000 energy bill cut for 10 million homes, arguing that ‘around 40% of UK households could be in fuel poverty this winter.’ If Shell’s profits remain elevated, the government’s current position may become untenable.

spud: BP, Shell Shareholders Warn Against 'Meddling' Windfall Tax -- Financial News 06/05/2022 10:35am Dow Jones News Shell (LSE:SHEL) Intraday Stock Chart Friday 6 May 2022 Bumper profits at Shell PLC and BP PLC have reignited calls for a windfall tax on oil giants to combat soaring energy bills, but shareholders say the move would be "short-term meddling" by the government. "I'm not that wild on governments intervening in markets on an ad hoc basis, particularly in businesses like this when lead times on investments are very long," one top 20 shareholder in BP and Shell told Financial News. "Anything that discourages long-term planning--and short-term intervention would discourage long-term investment--would be very problematic." Shell and BP posted record profits for the first three months of 2022 this week. BP's more than doubled to $6.2 billion, up from $2.6 billion last year--despite losing more than 20 billion pounds ($24.7 billion) after pulling its shareholding in Russian oil giant Rosneft Oil Co. Shell recorded a $9.1 billion profit during the first quarter, almost three times the $3.2 billion it made last year. The sharp increase in profit for both oil giants comes as energy bills soar and the war in Ukraine pushes oil prices higher. The record profits have led to calls from some politicians for oil and gas giants to be slapped with a one-off levy to offset spiralling costs for households. Following Shell's results, shadow energy secretary Ed Miliband, tweeted: "Another day, another oil and gas company making billions in profits, and yet another day when the Conservatives shamefully refuse to act with a windfall tax to bring down bills." However, fund managers are unconvinced it is the right approach. "I don't think it is fair to dip into company profits when they are good," said the top 20 shareholder. "Both of the big oil companies are at pains to set out what their longer-term strategies are, to be more diversified energy companies. It will be a long process and it isn't in the interests of shareholders or society if there is short-term meddling." BP said it plans to invest up to GBP18 billion in the U.K.'s energy system by 2030, including offshore wind and electric vehicle charging points. The planned investment from BP comes as asset managers with active fossil fuel stakes tout their ESG credentials, highlighting how their investment in heavy carbon emitters could actually help them cut greenhouse gases. Steve Clayton, a fund manager at Hargreaves Lansdown who holds both BP and Shell across the HL Select UK Income fund, said: "We cannot support windfall taxes on companies going about their ordinary course of business." "BP and Shell lost money, hand over fist, when energy prices were weak. A bumper year isn't a windfall if it comes after or precedes a drought year." He added: "President Putin has engineered an extraordinary price environment and currently producers are reaping the benefit. But if Europe and the West are serious about displacing Russian energy permanently from their supply base, then investment levels will have to rise sharply." Another top 20 shareholder in BP added: "North Sea oil activity is so limited these days that a windfall UK tax wouldn't have that much of an impact on the kind of results that BP have announced. It would just put them off any future investment." U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has so far rejected calls for a windfall levy on oil and gas companies, telling ITV on May 3 that it would "discourage them from making investments we want to see, that in the end will keep prices lower for everybody." Mr. Clayton said: "It is always tempting for governments to consider taking money from an industry that is making high profits at any given moment. But it is rarely wise for them to do so." "After all, for a productive economy, money must seek out the best possible returns. Take those opportunities away and less productive investments will be made and our growth potential reduced." spud
loganair: When the share price of Shell dropped to sub £10, was the time for share buy backs, not when the share price is already rapidly rising due to rapidly rising oil and gas prices. Just a couple of years back the share price was circa £8, Shell could have bought back 3 times the number of shares for the same amount of money as they can today. I have never liked share buy backs, what I would like to see is a rule where a company can not buy back its shares unless its share price is at least 25% down from its 52 weeks high and 40% below its 3 year high.
craftyale: Why has this thread turned into people driving an agenda or talking nonsense about things they don't understand? Can we get back to SHEL please. My son has a PhD in Physics your discussion on Fusion/Small reactors is utter nonsense. RR couldn't make the Trent 1000 work, and you trust them with fission? Don't make me laugh. SHEL share price is up and so is the price of oil. Happy days.
