Royal Dutch Shell, Plc (RDS.A) does not compare favorably with its peer group in terms of upstream growth prospects, returns, and costs. The group also remains exposed to production problems, continued instability in Nigeria, and political interference in Russia.

While the super majors as a group should hold up better in the current challenging macro backdrop, given their relatively diversified business structures, strong balance sheets, and attractive dividends, we see better investment ideas in this space.

Our preferred plays among the super majors remain Exxon (XOM), Chevron (CVX) and ConocoPhillips(COP). As such, we maintain our Hold recommendation on Shell.
