Fernando and Parlett observed that the dqds algorithm for singular values can be made extremely efficient with Rutishauser's choice of shift; in particular it enjoys ``local'' (or one-step) cubic convergence at the final stage of iteration, where a certain condition is to be satisfied. Their analysis is, however, rather heuristic and what has been shown is not sufficient to ensure asymptotic cubic convergence in the strict sense of the word. The objective of this paper is to specify a concrete procedure for the shift strategy and to prove with mathematical rigor that the algorithm with this shift strategy always reaches the ``final stage'' and enjoys asymptotic cubic convergence.
