    Anyone notice RDS is gone to shell ? Had a bep of €13 now bep is €22, see a sale/buy in my activity that I did not initiate no money lost but strange ! Just the bep has changed in De Giro ?

    Yep same for me. It messes up the total profit loss calculation too. Best to keep a hard note of your buy in price.

    In other news...

    "Shell plc (the ‘Company’) announced the commencement of up to $8.5 billion of share buybacks on February 3, 2022 for the first half of 2022. This comprises the remaining $5.5 billion of Permian divestment proceeds and $3.0 billion as part of the company’s capital allocation framework, which includes shareholder distributions in the range of 20-30% of cash flow from operations. In the first tranche of this buyback programme (the ‘initial programme’), the company has entered into an irrevocable, non-discretionary arrangement with a broker to enable the purchase of ordinary shares for a period up to and including May 4, 2022."

    Which I presume should lead to a nice share appreciation over the coming months!

    Having held them for several years, I got excited and sold some on Friday... A decision I've been regretting for the last few days.

    I'll be clinging onto my second holding, for many years to come.

    Theyve a capable management team, strong cashflows, and are making good progress with changing the mix of their business, which will see the brand become just a little bit "greener", year on year.
