Can Shell shares return to 2,000p? Here’s what I think

first_imgCan Shell shares return to 2,000p? Here’s what I think See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 28th November, 2020 | More on: RDSB Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Investors have been selling Shell (LSE: RDSB) shares in large numbers this year. It’s easy to see why.The pandemic has severely impacted the demand for oil and gas around the world. Indeed, at one point earlier this year, the outlook for oil demand was so dire that producers had to pay traders to take the product for the first time ever.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…Crumbling pricesNo company in the oil sector has been able to escape the pain of crumbling prices. Shell revealed a multi-billion dollar asset write-off in the first half of the year thanks to the slump. The group was forced to slash its dividend for the first time since the Second World War. As the company’s outlook darkened, Shell shares crumbled. At the end of October, the stock dropped below 900p, its lowest level this millennium. However, in the past few weeks, the group’s outlook has started to improve. As oil demand has recovered, oil prices have begun to recover too, and this has had a positive impact on Shell shares. And I think this could be just the start of a much bigger move higher by the stock. Shell shares look cheapShell’s outlook is tied to the fortunes of the oil market. Analysts expect the market to recover most of the ground it lost in 2020 by 2021. Of course, this isn’t a given. A third or fourth wave of coronavirus could hold back the recovery. Output growth may also push down prices if supply exceeds demand. Still, I believe the worst is behind the market. The world is adapting to the new normal. Lockdowns are no longer as severe as they were the first time around, and people are getting used to living with the virus. Recent vaccine news has also ignited hopes that the world can move on in the next 12 months. All of the above suggests to me that the oil price may not return to recent lows any time soon. That’s positive for Shell shares. The company could see a double benefit from rising oil prices. Not only will the group be able to sell its output at a higher price, but it should also benefit from improved profit margins. Over the past 12 months, the oil major has tried to slash costs to remain competitive. I reckon this will help the group generate more profit per barrel produced even at lower prices. Management seems to agree with my optimistic outlook. The company recently announced a small dividend increase and a return to its progressive dividend policy, whereby the payout is increased by a small percentage every year. A return to 2,000p? All of the above suggests to me that Shell shares may continue their recovery over the next 12 to 24 months. If the price of oil continues to recover, the stock may even return to the level at which it began the year, although that is a big IF considering the outlook for the global economy. Nevertheless, as the state of the oil market continues to improve, I’m considering buying more shares for my portfolio.  Enter Your Email Address Rupert Hargreaves owns shares in Royal Dutch Shell B.

The petitioner before the bench of Justice S. C. Sharman and S. K. Awasthi was aggrieved by order dated 07.05.2020 passed by the District Magistrate, District Dewas (MP) in exercise of powers conferred under the provisions of National Security Act, 1980. The petitioner’s contention was that on the date the detention order was passed, the petitioner was already in judicial custody and the Detaining Authority, at the time of passing of the detention order, was not aware of the fact that the detenu is in jail. It had been urged that the Police has registered three First Information Reports against the present petitioner and based upon the FIRs, which are for commission of offence punishable under Sections 294, 323 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, an order under the provisions of National Security Act, 1980 has been slapped upon the petitioner. It had also been stated that the petitioner is in judicial custody since 04.05.2020 and the factum of his judicial custody has not been taken into account by the District Magistrate. It had also been argued that based upon cases of minor / trivial nature, an order of NSA has been slapped upon the petitioner. The Division Bench appreciated that the statutory provisions governing the field as contained under Section 3 (2) of the National Security Act, 1980 reads, as under: – “The Central Government or the State Government may, if satisfied with respect to any person that with a view to preventing him from acting in any manner prejudicial to the security of the State or from acting in any manner prejudicial to the maintenance of public order or from acting in any manner prejudicial to the maintenance of supplies and services essential to the community it is necessary so to do, make an order directing that such person be detained” The Court noted that the impugned order certainly does not reveal that the District Magistrate has taken into account the fact that the petitioner is already in jail. The other important aspect of the case which, as per the bench, was required to be considered was the nature of the criminal cases registered against the present petitioner. Perusal of the criminal record of the petitioner made it very clear to the Court that three cases which were registered in the year 2005 have already been decided. Three cases (out of total seven cases) registered against the petitioner are for commission of offences punishable under Sections 294, 323 and 506 of Indian Penal Code, 1860. “The case reflected at Item No.6 registered against the petitioner is for commission of offences punishable under Sections 147, 148, 353, 332, 333, 336, 506, 188, 269 and 270 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860; and later on offence under Section 307 of IPC has also been added”, recorded the bench. The Court understood this to mean that most of the cases have been registered against the petitioner within 2-3 months for offences punishable under Sections 294, 323 and 506 of Indian Penal Code, 1860. “Keeping in view the fact that cases of 2005, which have already been decided, from the year 2005 to 2019 there is not a single criminal case registered against the petitioner and the cases which have been registered against the petitioner in the year 2020 are mostly for commission of offence punishable under Sections 294, 323 and 506 of Indian Penal Code, 1860, this Court is of the opinion that the District Magistrate has slapped the order of detention upon the petitioner with total non-application of mind”, concluded the bench. The Court proceeded to observe that the petitioner has not filed any bail application in respect of one of the criminal case and he is in jail, and therefore, it is really strange to believe that a person, who is in detention, is going to cause law and order problem and even though he is in jail, his activities are going to be detrimental to the public order. Appreciating several authorities of the Apex Court as well as the High Court, the bench noted that the order of detention can be passed validly by the Competent Authority, if the Competent Authority is aware of the fact that the detenu is really in custody, and if he has reason to believe on the basis of reliable material that there is a possibility of his being released on bail and that on being so released, the detenu would in all probabilities indulge in prejudicial activities . “The order passed by the Competent Authority in the present case does not reveal that the District Magistrate was aware of the fact that the detenu is in jail. In the light of the aforesaid, the order of detention is bad in law”, declared the bench, setting aside the order.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment]Next Storylast_img read more
