As Bing Crosby Used to Sing: We're Going Well, We're Going Shell...

Hello Share Swingers. This old punter has been of the opinion for many months now that Royal Dutch Shell (RDSA) is undervalued. This is based on oil and gas prices going through the roof. Brent Crude continues to rise with more big jumps this week and I agree with Tom when he says fuel prices will continue to soar this year.

Good News for its Shareholders as Shell's Almost Certain to Ship Out of The Hague in Favour of London

Hello, Share Twiddlers. As this venerable old punter has occasionally recommended Royal Dutch Shell (RDSA) on this dazzling website, I’m cheered by some interesting news at the weekend. Shareholders voted to move its headquarters from Holland to London. As shareholders will enjoy some jolly benefits from the move, the result was never much in doubt.

Yet More Support for the View that the Share Prices of Shell and BP Should Soar

Hello, Share Swingers. Allow me to update one of my recommendations I think is particularly promising. That is the conviction that shares in the big oilers, like Royal Dutch Shell (RDSA) and BP (BP.) are undervalued. More evidence has come my way that some big hitters in the City agree with me.

A Word in Your Shell-Like. The Shares should Rise as the Black Stuff Gets Even More Pricey

Hello, Share Takers. Shares in big oilers, like Royal Dutch Shell (RDSB) and BP (BP.), stay subdued. Even though the price of Brent Crude is consistently robust, hovering just below its recent highs of $85 a barrel. As results statements for these giants start to reflect the lofty oil price, I suggest a buying opportunity.

Why Shell and BP Shares Aren't Surging Is a Mystery to me. But You Might Want to Invest in Case the Dam Bursts

Lofty Oil Price Hasn't Galvanised the Share Prices of Big Boys of the Black Stuff - But that Could Change Soon

Hello, Share Folks. As I write, the oil price has reached the giddy height of $75 a barrel. Last November it was only about $20. The current high level is a main cause of inflation in Blighty. And inflation is the enemy of share prices everywhere. However, there is one sector which benefits most from a lofty oil price. And that of course is the one comprising big oil producers like BP (BP.) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDSA). So why have the share values of these giants only been treading water for the last few months?

Gas Price – Will it continue roofing it? And what shares to buy!

While I'm Glad Tom's Not Firing Me, He's Still Wrong.

Hello, Share Shiners. While relieved to know Tom Winnifrith won’t sack me, I must respond to his criticisms of my outlook for share shifters in climate change and any future lockdowns. Firstly, He doesn’t agree that carbon emissions lead to global warming saying it would happen anyway. But what he or I think doesn’t matter to shareholders. It’s what the majority of investors believe – and it concurs with most scientists that the planet is warming up. TW Note as opposed to in 1974 when nearly all scientists warned of a coming ice age – but maybe they will be right at some stage.

Oil Price – What’s the outlook for 2021?

What a mad year for oil sector investors. We entered with Brent at $68 per barrel. All looked set for a good sector performance, then the oil price fell off a cliff to $16 Brent before recovering to $52 as I type. I stuck my neck out previously predicting some negative pricing and WTI subsequently went spectacularly negative some weeks later.

Continuing large cap existential angst at Royal Dutch Shell and Lloyds Bank

Three months ago here, I discussed how at least Lloyds Banking Group (LLOY) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDSB) were starting to chomp down on the reality pills being given to them by trading realities. I stand by my assertion after today’s heavily red ink-influenced Shell numbers that this is not one I am excited about. I do not think it is anywhere close in working out how to effectively and efficiently invest in areas that could be attractive to shareholders who have cashed dividends for years and years thrown off by ‘black gold’ (which now is perceived – correctly in my view – as the black sludge it always technically was). It is not that oil demand is disappearing, it is that the costs of playing the game are getting higher…
