Barclays Plc (BARC.L) is cutting about 150 staff from its investment bank as part of the British bank's attempt to cut costs and improve profitability in the business, a person familiar with the matter said. Affected staff, which included managing directors, were told this week, the source said on Friday. Barclays last year said it would cut about 7,000 investment banking staff by the end of 2016. It cut about 2,500 in 2014 and expects to cut a similar amount this year and next, and this week's redundancies are part of that. It was not clear in what areas most of the cuts would be. New chairman John McFarlane this week said the investment bank remained a core part of the bank and he was pleased with an improvement in its return on equity this year, but he said it would continue to scale back in areas where it is not strong. Analysts expect more cuts in trading activities to allow capital to be diverted to higher-returning advisory and underwriting activities.smurfy2001
Pleased to see barc in the blue-kinda treading water-but very good in that FTSE down some 26 points. I expect further progress in the coming weeks and with positive newsflow from Barclays implementing McFarlane's strategy going forwardastol

BARC outperforming RBS today, refreshing change...smurfy2001
JOHANNESBURG - Barclays Africa, South Africa's third-largest lender by value, reported an 11% rise in half-year profit yesterday, helped partly by a robust showing from its cross-border business and a drop in bad debt charges. - Barclays, which operates in several other African countries such as Ghana, Kenya and Zambia, said those businesses grew net profit by more than 20%, more than twice the growth rate at home. - http://www.namibian.com.na/indexx.php?id=29811#sthash.pPIDmBUz.dpufjohnwise

Barclays chairman to accelerate restructuring as profit rises Mr McFarlane fired CEO Antony Jenkins this month after growing frustrated with the slow restructuring. He promised to press on with cost cuts and disposals. As Barclays posted an increase in a key capital ratio, the bank said it had no plans to ask investors for more capital. "Barclays’s numbers were good, even in the investment bank, and core Tier 1 capital was fine so fears about raising capital have subsided," said Julian Chillingworth at Rathbone Brothers. "This wasn’t about the numbers, it’s about the new chairman-cum-CEO and his strategy." http://www.bdlive.co.za/world/europe/2015/07/30/barclays-chairman-to-accelerate-restructuring-as-profit-risesjohnwise
and the ftse is only at 6600. If we have a macro rally back to 7100 it should take barc to 300+, although the 295 is going to be a tough level to break first time around. Maybe the xmas rally will be the time for it to break out and eventually test 330 again.blackberry122
We are trading above TNAV of 279psmurfy2001

Barclays 'now the most attractive investment' amongst the UK banks following latest results http://www.whatinvestment.co.uk/financial-news/shares-and-trading/2490181/barclays-and39now-the-most-attractive-investmentand39-amongst-the-uk-banks-following-latest-results.thtmljohnwise
Positive headline from the BBC? Cows do really fly! Barclays bank has reported a 25% rise in statutory pre-tax profits to £3.1bn for the six months to the end of June. Profits last year were £2.55bn. The bank also set aside a further £850m to compensate customers - including further claims for mis-sold payment protection insurance. The results come less than a month after new chairman John McFarlane sacked chief executive Antony Jenkins. In total, Barclays has now set aside £6bn to compensate for PPI mis-selling. Mr McFarlane is expected set out plans to speed up reform at the bank later. In April, Barclays set aside a further £800m, largely to cover potential further legal action and penalties for alleged foreign exchange manipulation. That resulted in Barclays reporting a 26% fall in its first quarter statutory profits to £1.34bn. But Barclays made a £496m gain on the sale of assets bought following the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008. It also said it intended to maintain its dividend at 6.5p this year - the same as it paid in 2014. Barclays' share price was 2% higher to 285.10p in early trade on the London Stock Exchange. Mr McFarlane, who took over as executive chairman of insurance giant Aviva in 2012 after sacking then chief executive Andrew Moss, believes Barclays' turnaround is not happening quickly enough. As he did at Aviva, Mr McFarlane, who only joined the bank in April, will take on executive duties, spearheading a quest for higher returns until a replacement is found, which, it is thought, is unlikely to be before early next year. Barclays also said it had set aside £250m for customer refunds and associated costs in response to complaints received relating to its packaged bank accounts. These incur a fee, but often come with added extras, a typical example being free motoring roadside assistance. Mr McFarlane said Barclays needed to accelerate growth in earnings, return on equity, and capital generation. The bank has already announced 19,000 job cuts. He said: "There is more that can be done to deliver better returns for shareholders, faster, and that work has begun." Mr McFarlane also announced the bank would speed up the process of mothballing or selling the bank's non-core divisions, to reduce them to a value of £20bn by 2017. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-33699423smurfy2001
A shorting attempt by Chirantan Barua I think - should be sacked.mbmiah
