Will Royal Dutch Shell Cut Its Dividend?

Summary

  • Royal Dutch Shell’s current dividend payout ratio is over 90%, putting the safety of the dividend in question.
  • The good news for investors is that the company is sitting on $21 billion in cash, and likely has the ability to continue paying its dividend throughout continued low prices.
  • The bad news for investors is that Royal Dutch Shell’s reserve replacement rate is only 47%, and this will affect the company’s long-term earnings power for producing oil.
