Want to buy the Shell share price? Here’s what I’d do now
Fool.co.uk12 August 2019, 11:11 UTC. If you’re looking for defensive income, in my opinion Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) is one of the best stocks you can buy. One of the UK’s top blue-chip stocks, this company has been paying an income out to investors since World War Two. I think these efforts will help Shell maintain its position as one of the world’s leading energy businesses for decades to come. However, the one drawback of investing in Shell is its size. Analysts are only forecasting earnings growth of 9% this year, followed by 15% for 2020, although these numbers are entirely dependant on the price of oil. But what the firm lacks in growth, it more than makes up for in income.
