|I think dr is a big liar than any other person a sad loser I expect he voted to remain and does not respect democracy So dr get a life you sad person He also believes in violence and riots I am a person who abides by democracy|
|Dr...think you have misunderstood my post of 120566....the press reported there were less people at the inauguration...so why does Trump people have to confront everything or was it Trump who stirs it all up....only he is right & everybody else is wrong...|
|It's about honesty and integrity.the spokesman laid into the press about fake news, before lying about the numbers. Sounds like some banana republic dictator who won't accept reality. On day 2 of his term.|
|The world is a much darker place now we have ....Trump|
|I see one day into his presidency and the lies have started - against photographic evidence about how many people turned up to his inauguration. I get the feeling we will see a lot of that in the next four years. Not only did Trump lie, his spokeman lied then Kellyanne Conway said it was "alternative facts".|

|now back to barc results are going to be very good excellent we are on lift off|
|when scum go on marches and set fire to buildings and bins and smash shop windows they are scum . businesses have enough problems trying to make a living .
all those that marched yesterday should be made pay for the damage done including lose of earnings . how would they like it if thugs went outside their homes doing the same they would be calling the police for action
no I do not like marches when the police can not find out who is in charge and waring masks to cover their crimes|
|Another good article, shows that positive sentiment definitely seems to be returning to BARC which is just as important as the underlying fundamentals. Hopefully the dog days are finally behind us....!|
One to buy in 2017.|
|What an unpleasant man you are. I had hoped you had left this thread for good, but I knew you were not a man of your word.|
|Could Barclays (LSE: BARC) be the runaway winner in the banking sector in 2017 and beyond? Let me tell you why I think it could.
The key thing for me is that Barclays is the one that has firmly grasped the Brexit nettle, and it fully understands what it needs to do to minimise the negative effects of the UK leaving the EU.
Along with the bank’s third-quarter results, chief executive Jes Staley reiterated the goal of Barclays’ restructuring, which is to create “a simplified transatlantic, consumer, corporate and investment bank“, with the dumping of non-core businesses as quickly as possible being a key step along the way.
That more outward-looking strategy should favour Barclays over rivals more focused on the UK and the EU, although I actually remain convinced that the rest of the UK’s banks aren’t in as much danger as many seem to think.
Barclays’ slashing of its dividend in order to focus expenditure on its restructuring was a bold move, and a smart one. The others must surely be wondering, in the wake of the referendum result, whether their own strategies of ramping up their dividends as they emerge from the banking crisis are perhaps now looking a bit foolhardy. Lloyds Banking Group, for example, is still forecast to provide a yield of nearly 6% in 2017, at a time when EPS forecasts look weak.
Share price boost
As a mark of confidence, investors have pushed Barclays shares up since their 2016 nadir of 121p, and today they stand at 235p. That’s an impressive performance, but it should also sound a note of caution, as it has pushed the shares up to a P/E of 18 now, based on 2016 year-end expectations — Lloyds shares are on a P/E of just half that.
Still, the City’s analysts are predicting a 50% rise in earnings for Barclays in 2017, which would drop the P/E to a more respectable 12. That’s still a relatively high rating for a bank right now, and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if we have a pause in the recent bullish run in the first half of the year. But if results continue to show positive restructuring progress, I can see an overall upwards trend continuing through the year.
What about the dividend?
When will Barclays’ dividend start rising again? When the bank announced the cut at the end of 2015, we were told to expect 3p per share for 2016 and 2017, so a resumption of growth this year appears to be out of the question. And the firm’s statement that it expects to “pay out a significant proportion of earnings in dividends to shareholders over time” (my emphasis) suggests to me that if we see any rise in 2018 it will only be a small one.
But that to me reinforces the nature of Barclays strategic plans, that they really are aimed at the long term and not at satisfying shareholders with short-term pocket money.
Barclays’ 2017 will be very much not about 2017 itself, but about setting the bank up for the years that follow. And I like that kind of long-term thinking.|
|An improving bank
Barclays (LSE: BARC) has risen by 78% in the last six months as investor confidence in the sector has improved. The bank has also begun to implement a new strategy under a new management team. While its decision to slash dividends may have caused some investors to be disappointed with the short-term income return on offer, it should help to shore up the bank’s balance sheet. Alongside asset disposals which are planned, this could cause Barclays to gradually become a stronger entity which is less risky and therefore worthy of a higher valuation.
In terms of its valuation, Barclays trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 17.9. While high, its earnings are due to rise by 52% this year, which means that it has a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of just 0.3. This indicates that its shares could move higher and remain good value. And with dividends of 3p per share representing just 15% of forecast earnings for the current year, it wouldn’t be surprising for shareholder payouts to rise at a rapid rate over the medium term.|
|Would prefer it goes to 260p first then a reverse to 210p or 182p don't mind...|
