Should you buy Shell shares after today’s dividend cut?

first_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Roland Head owns shares of Royal Dutch Shell B. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Making the first dividend cut at Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) for more than 70 years probably wasn’t easy for CEO Ben van Beurden. But the Shell share price is only down by 6%, as I write, suggesting many investors are supporting this decision.Although I’m a little surprised by today’s news, I think Shell’s dividend cut is the right decision. Here’s why.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Cut once, cut deepVan Beurden has been careful to cut deep. He won’t want to repeat this. Shell’s quarterly dividend has been cut by 66% to $0.16 per share. My sums suggest this should provide a yield of about 3.8%, with Shell’s share price at the last-seen level of 1,356p.Until today, Shell was the biggest dividend payer in the FTSE 100, returning about $15bn of cash per year to shareholders. However, the price of a barrel of Brent Crude oil has fallen by more than 60% to around $25 so far this year. Demand for oil, fuels and chemicals have also slumped as the world has gone into lockdown.Against this backdrop, Shell says the old dividend was “not prudent.” I’d have to agree. Today’s decision will reduce the annual cash cost of Shell’s payout to around $5bn. This looks much more sustainable to me.This cut should support the Shell share priceAs a Shell shareholder, I’m disappointed to be losing a big chunk of my dividend income. But there’s a part of me that says this cut is the right decision at the right time.The dividend was already expensive before the coronavirus pandemic. If the payout had been left unchanged this year, I think the company would have needed to use borrowed cash for the dividend. This isn’t something I like to see, even though Shell could have managed it without too much risk.I think cutting now should support the Shell share price over the longer term. When the oil market stabilises, I think it should speed up debt reduction and boost profits, paving the way for a return to dividend growth.Dividend cut could help cut emissionsShell plans to reduce its net carbon footprint to zero by 2050. Alongside this, the company wants to reduce the net carbon footprint of the energy products it sells by 65% by 2050. To achieve this, Shell will almost certainly need to invest much more in renewable energy projects. These tend to have slightly lower profit margins than oil and gas.I think that cutting the dividend should support this evolution and may even make it more successful.I like the Shell share priceIf you want exposure to oil in your portfolio but are worried about climate change, I think Shell could now be the best choice in the FTSE 100.The Shell share price is up by 50% from its March lows of under 900p. This suggests to me the market shares my view that Shell will be able to evolve from a pure oil and gas business into a more sustainable energy business.I’m happy to see the firm’s management looking ahead and making tough decisions. I plan to continue holding my Shell shares and would rate the stock as a long-term buy. Image source: Getty Images.

The Rt. Rev’d Michael Hanley, Bishop of Oregon, performed the installation and Rabbi Michael Cahana of Congregation Beth Israel in Portland delivered the homily. In Rabbi Cahana’s message, he spoke about the importance of leadership and with it should come humility and the responsibility of leading by example. Oregon’s Governor Kate Brown and Executive Director of Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon Jan Elfers read the lessons.“It’s a great honor for James and me to be called to be a part of Trinity’s future. The installation service was a powerful reminder that being a cathedral means not only serving our bishop and diocese, but serving as a gathering place and a strong moral voice for the city of Portland and the state of Oregon. It was a joy to welcome so many of our partners in ministry to this celebration as Trinity begins this new chapter in our history. God is doing incredible things in this place, and it’s a privilege to be a part of that.” Nathan was initially called to Trinity in 2009 as a part-time priest for youth and families. In 2010, Trinity’s second dean, the Very Rev’d William Lupfer, asked him to serve as Assistant to the Dean, later Canon Residentiary, and in 2012, he was appointed Canon for Spiritual Formation. In 2014, Nathan was called by the vestry to serve as acting dean during Trinity’s search process, and in January of 2016, he was elected by the vestry and chapter to serve as Trinity’s third dean. A fifth-generation Oregonian and native Portlander, LeRud is the son of a pastor and was raised and baptized in the Evangelical Church of North America. He holds a BA in English and Theatre from Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA and an M.Div from the General Theological Seminary in New York City. Sponsored for ordination by the Episcopal Diocese of Spokane, LeRud was ordained to the priesthood in 2007. Before being called to Trinity he served as curate of Christ Episcopal Church in Ridgewood, New Jersey. LeRud is married to the Reverend James Michael Joiner, assistant rector of St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in Portland. Theirs was the first same-gender marriage conducted at the Cathedral by Bishop Michael Hanley. Trinity Episcopal Cathedral was founded in 1851 and was designated cathedral for the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon in 1993. Among the largest Episcopal churches in the region, Trinity identifies as a progressive congregation of 1800 members open to many points of view, but united in a commitment to spiritual formation, community outreach, and social justice.

World Rugby disappointed with Scotland comments regarding Typhoon decisions

first_imgFriday Oct 11, 2019 World Rugby disappointed with Scotland comments regarding Typhoon decisions World Rugby have reacted to the comments made by the Scottish Rugby Union following the decision to cancel two world cup games, and consider canceling a third, which would knock Scotland out of the tournament. ADVERTISEMENTAfter World Rugby on Thursday announced that they decided to cancel two pool matches due to Typhoon Hagibis, resulting in draws and two points for each team, Scotland could be facing an exit if their crunch match with Japan suffers the same fate.Today Scottish Rugby’s Mark Dodson said: “World Rugby have pointed us back to the participation agreement and that it is clearly stated there. We’ve had a legal opinion and then we’ve taken a leading sports QC opinion in London that challenges that and unravels the World Rugby case.”“We don’t want to get in some sort of legal arm wrestle with World Rugby, but our view is it doesn’t sit right with us, we don’t feel it’s just, we feel there’s other ways,” the chief executive said.“I think most people feel that if it had been an economic powerhouses – let’s say New Zealand – perhaps more thought would have been given to a flexible approach.“I think in the court of public opinion, we’ve already won. Right from the get go, we said we will play any place, anywhere, behind closed doors, in full stadiums. We will travel the length and breadth of Japan.“We have spoken to the Japan Rugby Football Union and they are keen for this game to go on. What we’re asking for is a common-sense approach that allows this game to be played in perfect safety 24 hours after the storm clears.”ADVERTISEMENTWORLD RUGBY RESPONSEThe sport’s governing body said that they were disappointed with the view of the Scots.“It is disappointing that the Scottish Rugby Union should make such comments at a time when we are doing everything we can to enable all Sunday’s matches to take place as scheduled, and when there is a real and significant threat to public safety owing to what is predicted to be one of the largest and most destructive typhoons to hit Japan since 1958.“Along with the 19 other teams, the Scottish Rugby Union signed the Rugby World Cup 2019 terms of participation, which clearly state in Section 5.3: “Where a pool Match cannot be commenced on the day in which it is scheduled, it shall not be postponed to the following day, and shall be considered as cancelled. In such situations, the result shall be declared a draw and Teams will be allocated two Match points each and no score registered.”ADVERTISEMENT“As outlined during Thursday’s media conference in Tokyo, the core principle that could enable us to explore a departure from the terms of participation, is a fair and consistent application of the rescheduling for all teams in a safe environment for teams, fans and essential match services.“The sheer predicted scale and impact of the typhoon, and the complexity of team movements for eight matches, meant that an even-handed application was just not possible without putting safety at risk. Therefore, it was the fair and correct decision for all teams to maintain the position outlined in the terms of participation.“It would be inappropriate to make further comment at a time when we are fully focused on the safety of everyone and this weekend’s matches.”A decision will be made soon on whether the Japan vs Scotland match will go ahead or not.

The place of the commission is a plot located in Curaumilla, Valparaíso, a space that falls into the sea with a steep slope and that has two predominant spatial situations: on the front, a wide view of the horizon and the sea that is perceived from the top of a creek, and from the inside, views filtered by a forest of pines and glades. The project is a second house with a program divided into two areas, one private, with two bedrooms en suite and the other with the social space, an open kitchen, a guest bathroom, a dining room, a living room and terraces.Save this picture!© Alesón del VillarSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Alesón del VillarThe project is located right on the edge where the forest ends and the gorge begins to fall, being almost the only place from where the entrance to the sea can be seen. In this way, the site celebrates that “border” between both situations and adapts to the topography, resulting, on the one hand, in the containment of the forest and the ground, and on the other, creating a balcony-like space towards the sea as an elevated viewpoint. The proposal is a broken volume in two bodies oriented in different directions and connected by means of a glazed corridor. The first of the volumes is where social life takes place, it begins to sink and gradually takes off until it rises from the ground. At the interred end, the roof is at ground level, functioning as the access to the house and ending in a habitable deck from which the profile of the distant hills and the horizon of the sea can be contemplated.Save this picture!© Alesón del VillarThe bedrooms are divided on two floors in the other volume, facing the sea. Both bodies are connected with a transparent arm that runs along the elevation, the thin “forest-sea border” allowing the experience of both situations, while respecting the natural flow of the topography, constituting a translucent “narrowness” that filters the place, sea and interior, extending the visual limits beyond what is built.Save this picture!© Alesón del VillarSave this picture!Section BBSave this picture!© Alesón del VillarEn el otro volumen, de dos pisos, se ubican los dormitorios que también miran al mar. Ambos cuerpos se conectan con un brazo transparente que recorre la cota, la delgada “frontera bosque-mar” permitiendo, por una parte, la vivencia de ambas situaciones y por otra, el fluir natural de la topografía, constituyéndose como una “angostura” traslúcida que filtra el lugar, mar e interior, extendiéndose los límites visuales más allá de lo construido.Save this picture!© Alesón del VillarSave this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Alesón del VillarProject gallerySee allShow lessSlope House / Studio EONSelected ProjectsOjito de Agua House Extension / Lacaja ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Curaumilla House / Andrés Riveros + Crescente Böhme Alemparte ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeCrescente Böhme AlemparteOfficeFollowAndrés RiverosOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesValparaísoOn FacebookChilePublished on July 27, 2020Cite: “Curaumilla House / Andrés Riveros + Crescente Böhme Alemparte ” [Casa Curaumilla / Andrés Riveros + Crescente Böhme Alemparte ] 27 Jul 2020.

Europe continues to be the continent that best guarantees press freedom, but the work of its investigative reporters is being obstructed more and more.Read moreREAD THE GENERAL ANALYSIS RSF_en June 7, 2021 Find out more June 4, 2021 Find out more News “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia April 16, 2019 – Updated on April 18, 2019 RSF index 2019: regional analysis to go furthercenter_img Reports Europe – Central AsiaAfricaMiddle East – North Africa Asia – PacificAmericas Armed conflictsConflicts of interestCorruptionOrganized crimeDisappearancesJihadismImprisonedEnvironmentWomenImpunityInternetCitizen-journalistsFreedom of expressionExiled mediaHostagesPredatorsEconomic pressureJudicial harassmentViolence June 8, 2021 Find out more Europe – Central AsiaAfricaMiddle East – North Africa Asia – PacificAmericas Armed conflictsConflicts of interestCorruptionOrganized crimeDisappearancesJihadismImprisonedEnvironmentWomenImpunityInternetCitizen-journalistsFreedom of expressionExiled mediaHostagesPredatorsEconomic pressureJudicial harassmentViolence Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says Organisation News News Help by sharing this information last_img read more

COVID-19 Vaccine Could Help Boost Urban Real Estate

According to real estate and economy experts, the arrival of a vaccine could really begin to turn the market around.Currently, the pandemic and historically low mortgage rates and home inventory have driven up home prices to where we are now seeing record high price tags throughout the nation. However,  studies show that the most costly areas (urban cities, like New York and San Fransisco) are among the few locales that are experiencing the opposite, as people move away to the suburbs, driving rent and home price tags lower.According to the experts, the promise of a vaccine could turn the tide for these urban areas, bringing real estate demand back to the cities. Jonathan Miller, president of Miller Samuel and a real estate appraiser and consultant in New York City, commented on this possibility and how it would come about: “It’s not going to be a light switch, but the news is starting to get people to be hopeful and think about returning to the city. Because right now, without a vaccine, it is status quo.”Even though an approved and ready-to-go vaccine is still a ways away, people are beginning to cautiously become more hopeful and optimistic about real estate market recovery, especially in the hard-hit cities. Also according to Miller, after the arrival and usage of the vaccine becomes more and more widespread—and life begins to be and feel more normal—that city real estate markets will likewise be on the mend (more and more).”Once the vaccine is out and the population begins seeing schools reliably open and the big companies bringing people back in, that’s where it snowballs,” Miller said. “Then people can make plans around it.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News November 19, 2020 1,268 Views Previous: How Mortgage Servicers Can Turn COVID’s Biggest Challenges into Customer Retention Next: a360inc Further Expands Real Estate Settlement Services Andy Beth Miller is an experienced freelance editor and writer.
