  • I agree with this pattern, if RD breakout above $56, could easily make it to $66 or $70 next year. The ascending triangle look very strong. Keep our finger cross that it don't break down to $46 again.


    Royal Dutch Shell Poised For Breakout
    Oil giant's "A" shares have an attractive chart pattern.
  • For the astute posters on this board. One reporter recently said that with the advent of electric cars oil one day will drop to 25 a barrel. Any here agree with him?
  • Integrated Petroleums comparison---
    Value Line (VL) rates 8 Integrated Petroleum stocks as “A+” or better for Financial Strength. Their current dividend yields range from IMO’s 1.63% to RDSB ‘s 6.56%. The next highest current yield is TOT at 5.32%. VL’s Projected 3-5 Yr % Annual Total Returns run from the high of RDSB’s 18% down to MPC’s 5%. The next highest is IMO at 17%, but its current yield is only 1.63%.
    VL thinks RDSB’s dividend is secure and could possibly be increased.

    I. On War

    Arising first near sources of cheap coal and since created systematically by government, technological schwerpunkte accelerate development: Since the Napoleonic Wars, Germany has promoted industry and science with state-funded universities and institutes. From 1936-40, to copy materials from the Black Forest UFO, the Reich funded scanning and transmission electron microscopes. The UFO crash enabled an expedition which found, without subglacial maps, the volcano-free mountains in New Swabia. SS-led research enabled production of polysilicon. The Netherlands profited from Göring's overlordship: E.g. technology for producing integrated circuits was developed (1942), patented in the US and improved by the Apollo and Minuteman programmes. After Peenemünde was bombed in 1943, the polysilicon, integrated circuit and navigational computer works for A9/A10 ICBMs at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Silicate Research were moved from Berlin to bunkers in the Rhön Mountains. The jet and rocket projects SS-General Hans Kammler executed doubled as decoys, diverting attention from the UFO. In 3/1947, the US abandoned its invasion of Antarctica and plan to deindustrialise Germany: Antarctica has few organisms, allowing aliens to inhabit a subterranean spaceport and deep-sea mining centre. UFOs were soon sighted near all the US' nuclear sites. Due to the diversion of German expertise in New Mexico to copy the UFO, a copy of which crashed in 7/1947, rocketry lagged the German-led Soviet project. On 9.7.47, the day the US Army called the copy of the UFO a balloon, Walter Dornberger, Hans Kammler's deputy, was released from Camp 198. Naturally, the SS' foreign organisation profited: Fascists the US has admitted hiring had to have employed it; otherwise recruiting thousands more fascists would have been impossible. In 1948, a polysilicon plant was begun in the US after failures with silicon transistors; without research acquired from the SS dictating use of pure materials, anticipating quantum physics proofs, American industry would not have been so prescient. Walther Riedel told the media UFOs are relevant in 1952; the CIA fired him in 1953. The USSR funded research on UFOs, projects to mitigate their impact on its military and concluded the best defence was to withdraw from Germany: From 9/1977, due to UFOs near Leningrad, it investigated paranormal space phenomena; in 7/1989, it investigated the surveillance of Kapustin Yar; in 4/1990, the Soviet Air Defence Forces reported 100+ sightings of a UFO near Moscow; after the DDR announced reunification, a fleet of UFOs was sighted near Peenemünde; in 1990, the KGB reanalysed Operation Highjump (1946-7) and concluded the US military tried to find a fortress used by the SS in New Swabia and was attacked by UFOs. From 1976-90, the Luftwaffe funded stealth materials and computing technologies. Since 1990, naval funding has enabled development of batteries, fuel cells and U-boats that surpass all warships in crush depth, detection of enemies and engagement ranges. Advances in the metallurgy of refractory metals, epitaxy and nanolithography have enabled manufacturing of heat shields and high-temperature electronics for aerospace devices, nuclear fusion reactors and drilling rigs. Autonomous systems for tracked earthmovers and panzers will eliminate vehicle operators' energy use. To aid manufacturing of F-35s, German robotic assembly systems have been adapted and deployed near Edwards AFB. The Fukushima disaster has facilitated funding for robots, glass nanofoundries, cleansing radioactive waste and producing deuterium and tritium. Near the Black Forest, a state-backed consortium is industrialising technologies portrayed by a German actor, with Cyberdyne Systems model numbers: e.g. mass production of robotic components with lasers and of high-capacity and rapidly-rechargeable batteries. Mass production of microstructured magnetic sensory integrated circuits with variable angle incidence plasma reactors increases the functionality of industrial and military robots. Nanofabrication of quartz glass microcircuits enables energy-efficient robotic components similar to Hollywood's Crystal Skulls. Technology has enabled $4,6 trillion in trade surpluses, supplementing German wealth with vast foreign assets; land values have limited the living space and births per person of non-Europids to little more than 60% of post-1989 German levels.

    II. Materials and Energy

    German technologies reduce energy production costs, coal, gas and oil use and their prices as they are replaced. To isolate Northern protectionists, Germany AG industrialised the South. The Southern US dwarfed the North in textiles and apparel in 1947; German machines filled the factories by 1980; fully robotic production will make the Third World's workers and oil use redundant. Air-and-fibre analytic textile systems on factory-level computers will reduce demand for energy, labour, natural fibres and petrochemicals. Silk manufactured with genetically engineered bacteria will replace petrochemicals. Since 1960, plasma reactors pioneered with German state funding have displaced energy- and labour-intensive microstructuring systems. After 1970, to deploy lasers, state-subsidised projects achieved supremacy in diamond tools, ion beams, nano stepper motors and crystal machining: German organisations now supply more than half of all lasers. Plasma reactors and ambient air pressure and high-to-low thermal flux plasma systems reduce the tonnage of chemicals needed to process yarn, textiles, hides and three-dimensional wooden, plastic and metallic components, and energy and labour demand therefrom, by more than 99%. Electromagnetic pulse extermination systems will replace chemicals in automotive painting. Replacing chemicals with lasers for microstructuring metals enables mass production of metal-silicate composites and economic increases in aircraft durability and fuel efficiency. Integrated laser-furnace systems enable replacement of petrochemicals with glass. Retooling engine factories with laser-plasma reactors extends usage of diamond-like carbon films, colonisation of American firms and reduces oil use. Plasma reactors reduce the energy and total cost of carbon yarn by half. Automated manufacturing of curved and flat carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRPs) reduces component costs. Robotic milling of CFRPs with vehicle-mounted machine tools reduces the labour, energy and materials needed to manufacture aircraft, automobiles, rolling stock and ships. Dry adhesive materials that were once limited to light loads, microrobots and geckos will be mass-produced for industrial and military robots. Multi-axial, simultaneous and variable-length pulse laser machining of machine elements and moulds will eliminate skilled labour. Automated production systems for polymer composites enable lightweight, bigger and more economic wind turbines. Mould, die and extrusion technologies enable replacement of petrochemicals with starch and cellulose foams. Near the Wehrmacht's synthetic rubber sites, Green systems have been deployed that reduce energy use comparably with natural rubber. Weight reduction in machine construction increases energy efficiency, speed, precision and dominance in the aerospace, automotive, laser and textile industries. Supremacy in mass-producing nanostructured polymer- and glass-based optics, nonlinear crystals, bionic microlenses, infrared and diamond optics and hyperspectral, terahertz and three-dimensional cameras supports deployment of energy- and labour-saving automation systems. Radar developed with Green subsidies collects data with little energy, facilitating deployment of robots and detection of defective components. Robotic vision operating at resolutions several orders of magnitude greater than radar, and imperceptible to humans, will facilitate mechanisation of agriculture, industry, healthcare and warfare. Imaging and automation technologies reduce recycling costs, demand for raw materials and oil demand. Mass-produced sensors and radio frequency modules dispense with batteries, external power and janitorial and warehouse workers' cost and energy use. State-funded autonomous railway technologies will displace oil-intensive fast freight. Thermally conductive polymers enable water-based, mould-free and energy-efficient heating and cooling. Bionic concrete enables collection of energy from building exteriors. Nanoengineered superalloys, ball bearings and coatings improve coal power plants' energy efficiency. Nanoengineered paints increase the durability of steel infrastructure and ships by more than two orders of magnitude, reducing oil and gas production costs. Electronics operating at more than twice conventional heat limits increase productivity of oil and gas drilling rigs and enable development of deeper reserves. Silicate materials technologies improve the reliability of sonar and enable real-time monitoring of oil field equipment and turbines at nearly five times conventional heat limits. Laser systems enable production of high-capacity silicate- and polymer-based pipelines which will reduce costs of transporting oil, methane and hydrogen. Oil produced from stranded natural gas fields, farm, paper mill and sawmill waste, and rubber from optimised dandelions, will replace petroleum. Alien electronics inspired the Reich's production of polysilicon; Green technology is aiding the conquest of electronic chemicals markets. Supremacy in electron-, ion-, plasma- and laser-based production technologies aids deployment of solar cells, fuel cells, power electronics, supercapacitors and batteries. Green technologies aid German conquests: The oil dictatorships and "superpowers" are becoming more dependent.


  • While Dow industrials components Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Chevron (CVX) and many shale plays remain in sharp downtrends, BP (BP), Royal Dutch Shell (RDSA) and First Solar (FSLR) are among energy stocks that are approaching buy points.
  • RD Candlestick pattern today is a doji indecision and a hint of reversal almost an exhaustion. It look like a hangmen. I am hoping it will be a minor damage tomorrow so I can take a profit and wait for a $3.00 drop to buy again. Just my opinion only.
  • Trade

    As suspected, my trading shares were called away pre x-date. So, I purchased at 53 and sold at the equivalent of 55.45. I did not receive the dividend so, basis current price, left some on the table...but not unhappy with the trade.
  • Global Oil Production. With the United States, Brazil and Canada increasing oil production, driving down prices, I see no real choice for OPEC other than to increase their production as well. Otherwise, they lose too much market share. I expect OPEC will flood the market with cheap oil to force shale oil production to shut down once again. The cycle will repeat history. Oil will fluctuate between $32 and $57/ barrel. Just my opinion. I am still long Shell.
  • Now that I am out, I will turn off the monitor and wait a month for RD to return to the bottom trendline support at 52-53 to start buying again, by then the next swing up should be $58.00. Just my own thinking.
  • Can someone explain the divi here? Last divi was 94 cents in December. Looks like another one in June. What is the yield here?
  • LNG destined to be one of the largest lng companies in the world..shell should be looking at it..revenue went from 69 million last year to over a billion in one quarter...too much to post
  • RD is looking very good going forward, if you look at the indicator On Balance Volume (OBV) you can spot right away when the stock pullback BUT the OBV continue to climb aggressively via Institutional buying, so I say it has a good future and keep watching this indicator for draw down for major change of direction.
  • 94 cents dividend each quarter for last few years so $3.76 a year which, based on price of $55.65 per share, is a dividend yield of 6.76%
  • Trade

    I sold covered May 19 55 calls on the trading shares that I bought a little while ago at 52.19. The option price was 0.45.

    That means that if someone calls the shares away before the x-date (most probable scenario at this point), I will clear 3.29/share equivalent on the overall trade (more than 6% in three weeks). Should the shares not be called by 5/19, I will have collected 0.94 dividend on each share and the 0.45 for the sale of the option, so I will still have the shares with a base price reduced from 52.19 to 50.8 (minus a small transaction fee).
  • RD ascending triangle trendline (top) is still $56.00. I would say this will be the resistance for dividend run.
  • Covered all my short XLE hedges via ERY. 10 long trades since Dec16- all winners. Now my long RDSB outrights are rallying and going x-div soon. Man, is this a great country! Long and lovin' it. GLTA
  • RDSA will go higher. Do not worry. You are not wrong. And good purchase.
  • Ray, Retired what is going on? RDS-a good earning report but not doing very well today. Is oil the culprit?
  • If i read it right Ex-div date is may 18th.
  • Is RDS a stock I can own for the next 20 years? Is that safe to hold it that long?
