RE: This Shell management and Board has managed to anger05 Aug 2022 20:52
Agree, I had an average of £26, then it went down to £8 something, and with a bit of averaging down, and going way over the number comfortable with, got out just above break even (excluding dividends) 2 years later. Winds me up that Shell spout about giving billions extra back to shareholders, they should be made to correct that lie in the press, they are only buying back their own shares with the dividend money they used to pay us, loyal shareholders, BP better bet or l&g
That is like saying multinational companies should pay consistent wages across all countries, regardless of their cost of living, no one does this!, it is not an Easyjet thing, and by the way, strikes called off
Plan is to live with it now, perhaps another vaccine round before winter but that’s all, very few people dying from variants in UK, more from virus’s and common ailments. More -people die from pneumonia and flu then Covid per year since the change in variant. Need to look elsewhere for the scare story
If you have no interest in the share, move to a board you do have shares in, you are like a person that never votes but feel they can moan about every policy of government. Own up, shorting or holding, either way we can put your rants into context, if neither, then go bother someone else
What is a good price for this share? After waiting 2 years to get out of shell (was in at £26 then averaged down) bought some of these as chasing divi not growth. In here at age 251, also got some Persimmon as they are really cheap at mo with good divi
Business in Russia should never be acceptable again until the leader has gone and the land they murdered civilians for given back and reparations paid. If Europe turns a blind eye to all of this for a cheap ceasefire they are as guilty as Putin because he will do it again
RE: Day high about to be breached???18 Jun 2022 00:19
Might be because Easyjet and Gatwick have got in front of the cancelled flights?. Although initially negative, provided they meet the rest of their obligations the market will not price in shocks and huge uncertainty, just predicted, and planned lost revenue
I agree, it is all relative, the biggest risk is reputation. 1700 flights per day and they have announced, finally, getting out in front of the cancellations by removing 40 per day and although I agree will not get sufficient staff f0r summer hols, they will be chipping away at cancellations.
Trying to book a flight is a nightmare, most sold out and those that are not have really high prices compared to last year, but still we are buying these up. I was in at £5.00 which I thought was a good price but bought a load now in the £4.50’s and £4.30’s. Expecting to be back over the £5 before end of summer so can reduce holding and make few £’s
With lend up demand causing all of the issues, I think oils prices can and will be passed on and people will still want to fly. The risks relate to the brand damage over the next three months, especially if the other airlines get their act together. Ryanair seem to be doing well so is possible. Better to reduce number of fights now and preserve reputation that continue to mess up 200 flights a day and pay huge amounts in compensation.
Had these when they got chopped and averaged down from 620 to 410 Since but not going to stick load more in to average further, with flight companies seeming to start a recovery and good news on Covid including Wales removing last restrictions when will we see the cruise bit stop dragging down the insurance business? Also be good if there was any interim indication from the business, EasyJet etc all talking up increased traffic.
Vote winning politics at its worst!. Did BP and Shell ask home owners for a handout when they made their worst loss in decades? Did I ask for help stuck on £26 per share when price went down to just below £9.0. Also who do they think is going to invest the billions in renewable energy and energy efficiency? Of course labour would, with our money! headline grabbing politics.
It is an emotional response and not a logical one, the Russian companies will take these assets thank you very much and the proceeds and the IP that accompanies them, far better to maintain control and ownership, EE n if all profits from the revenue generated went to rebuild or support Ukraine. For avoidance of doubt, I am totally pro Ukraine and not supportive in any way of the terrible wrongdoing going on under our eyes but this strategy gives them extra revenue, not less
Am guessing the dividend must have a lot to do with the share price, if it was still 47c then think share price would be closer to previous prices although the push for renewables and electric had gathered a pace since 2017. This is the future for shell and bp
Brent up 9% at the moment and divi payment date soon. Need some good news as was stuck on 26.5 per share but managed to ave down to 21, so close but so far several times now, here’s hoping we eventually cross the 21 barrier but keep taking div till we do
