Shell: BofA Merrill Lynch sees upside, raises target price
(CercleFinance.com) - BofA Merrill Lynch has raised its target price for the Royal Dutch Shell share from 2,660 pence to 3,100 pence, seeing over 35% upside in the stock.
In a note to clients, the broker - which has a "buy" rating on the Anglo-Dutch oil major - said that yesterday's weak quarterly earnings were mostly due to "temporary effects."
BofAML said it expects the shares' re-rating process to gather pace with Total's upcoming Capital Markets Day (CMD) on 24 September, which, in its view, will echo Shell's strategy.
