SHELL STOCKHOLDER’S INTERESTS

Comment from an Royal Dutch Shell stockholder. Name and email address provided.

In broad term Shell Oil’s profits have doubled in the last three years. The dividend paid to stockholders has been the same for going on 11 QUARTERS. As a stockholder, and considering the overall world opinion about the seemingly corporate greed at the top of companies, I feel that an increase in the quarterly dividend is long overdue!
