    I've tried them Find the historical dividend payments from RDSA SHEL For the past 25 years. I've only been able to go back about 5 years. If someone can find the total dividend payments for the last 25 years the board will appreciate it. Thanks John

    SHEL Debt 83.7 Billion. XOM Debt 46.8 Billion. Could be a reason for Stock Price disparity

    Shell is handing nearly all its 82,000 staff a bonus equivalent to 8% of their salary after the oil company reported record profits amid soaring energy prices.

    What about bringing back old levels of dividend for investors?

    In the conference call, I was happy to see that BvB has gone from "prices lower for longer" to "prices higher for at least the foreseeable future."

    For my critics, is that a positive statement?

    I believe not raising dividends is to avoid political fallouts. Buybacks sort of hide capital returns.

    I doubt that contacting Shell investor relations would do anything but, if you want to gripe about the Company failing to distribute recent profits through shareholder dividends use their Contact form at https://www.shell.com/investors/contacts.html (scroll down a page or two for the form) and let them have it.
    Contact information for institutional shareholders and information about the Investor Relations team members.

    So, Shell posts a $11.5b profit for the quarter, announces an additional $6b stock buyback program, an not 1 cent to increase the shareholder's dividend.

    I don't like the lowered, and staying 'low' dividend. But, there is a tactical time when share buybacks are in the company and future shareholders' best interests. Buffet does the same with Berkshire cash and has bought $US60 billion in the last 4yrs. If a company can not generate enough ranked value adding projects internally, or believes buying assets is too pricey, and in Shell's case, their stock is undervalued, then it can be very prudent to do share buybacks. It lowers future dividend commitments which can be put toward dividend increases (which is what the top guy said), there are other financial things analysts like, but to my mind, if the company stock is undervalued, it is putting money in your own bank to do an acquisition in the future when metrics are more favourable and the stock has (hopefully) appreciated in value. There has been huge price volatility in oil & gas historically and it'll happen again. Shell can not do another dividend cut for at least 20yrs, if ever.
    Regarding dispositions ... I'm not a guy w/ all the info, but it appears Shell has been disposing of high liability assets. There are huge environmental liabilities tied to oil refineries, & aging offshore infrastructure . The Permian Basin was a head scratcher for sure, but if you realize how much water is required for the fracs, and the droughts affecting the SW 'states, maybe that is in theory a smart thing to get out of. Timing wasn't great, but Shell has had really bad timing issues for lots of stuff.
    It's obvious Shell is turning green, but there are some substantial investments in natural gas, and LNG. That is the transition future.
    In the UK, there is now a windfall profits tax on hydrocarbon producers, but that can be offset by infrastructure commitments in whatever greener ideas come along. I think Shell had no choice but to look at that big investment ... use it or lose it. It doesn't hurt to talk, and you can always show drawings for a couple of years until people start freezing in the winter, cooking in summer.
    Big dividends aren't coming back to Shell shareholders until the political heat is turned off one way or another. Shell no longer wants to be an 'oil' company -- it is a European look I guess. Companies are run with 'The Company' as number 1 priority. Lots of shareholders like 4% dividends apparently ... and tons of new ones out there.
    Not going to change unless the top executives decide, hey, I think I'd love it in Texas.

    Better start paying down some of that massive debt instead of wasting it on buybacks. The day will come when the interest rate cycle does a 180 degree turn an we will be heading into a big headwind of much higher interest expense. I want the shareholders to get the long term benefit of owning this company, not the creditors!!!! Leverage worked great for the last 15 years of historically low interest rates but it will have the opposite impact once the rate cycle reverses.

    WOW...highest quarterly earnings ever and stock price up a whole 7 cents.

    And, how can they justify saying that buy backs are a return to shareholders...a return to shareholders only consists of dividends and share price appreciation...and, we all know what those are. Probably the reason that share price did not react to earnings report.

    Shell had a good day today. They spent $100 million on share buybacks today and lost only $5 billion in market cap. I guess its better than losing $6 billion. :)

    Over the past two days, Shell, XOM and CVX reported record profits. As I write this, over the past two days, XOM share price is up 3.33, CVX is up 10.27 and Shell is up 0.57.

    I think this indicates how investors view the three companies, their management and their strategy - and how they reward their shareholders.
