However, there is much more to the company’s dividend appeal than simply a high yield.
When coupled with its stunning dividend potential, it means that Shell may be one of the best income shares to hold in 2017 and beyond.
Long-term income potential Of course, Shell isn’t the only dividend stock that could be worth buying at the present time.

Royal Dutch Shell: My Massive Gamble – Royal Dutch Shell plc (NYSE:RDS.A)
Yielding 7% with the company’s history on the line, I’ll take the massive gamble that this dividend holds firm.

After reading yet another article about how the dividend was at risk for Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS.A) (NYSE:RDS.B), it reminded me of why I am in this name to begin with.
In other words, it wasn’t a simple “earnings didn’t cover the dividend so it will be cut” article.
Of course, it makes fiscal sense to say “hey earnings are down so the dividend is at risk.”
