Shell, over the last several years, has had to downgrade their reserves, more than once, of which like cash flow are the two major yardsticks of oil companies, thus their stock hasn't done as well as the other majors. Though the majors' stocks haven't done as well as the smaller integrateds, such as Canadian Shell, SHC on the Toronto exchange. The majors will do better once crude pricing is in a decidedly downward trend, where their integrated cash flow strength is superior to all other oil sectors. And we believe that crude will be in the 50's yet this year, thus the time to buy shares could be now. Good luck.
