Royal Dutch Shell: Unsustainable

Quad 7 Capital: Apr. 6, 2017 12:43 PM ET

Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS.A) (NYSE:RDS.B) has been a name of controversy of late. Why? Well, this is an oil stock and oil prices have meandered. While shares are up substantially off of their multi-year lows seen a year ago, this stock still yields 7%. The dividend payment is the center of most controversy, with so many feeling it is unsustainable. That is what I keep hearing. Unsustainable. They tell me Shell is ‘unsustainable’ at $40 oil.

That would take Shell to the end of 2017 to start construction. read more

The end is nigh for Shell in New Zealand

  • The Wall Street Journal

Royal Dutch Shell has taken a step towards an exit from its New Zealand assets with a deal to sell its 50 per cent stake in a natural-gas field to local venture partner Todd Energy.

The agreement will also see Shell take full control of a joint-venture company that operates two further gas ventures in New Zealand, simplifying Shell’s operating structure as it looks to offload the assets. Financial terms weren’t disclosed.

The sale of its stake in the Kap­uni field in New Zealand’s Taranaki region to Todd Energy follows a review of operations in the country that Shell announced in December 2015 as part of ­efforts to refocus its natural-gas and deepwater oil businesses following a slump in oil prices. read more
