|Thanks! Great move.|
|(ShareCast News) - Morgan Stanley upgraded HSBC to 'equal weight' from 'underweight' and raised its price target to 645p from 550p. The broker upgraded the bank's stock as the revenue outlook has improved on better Asia pacific (APAC) loan growth and higher rates. "We have had an underweight rating on HSBC as we were concerned around risks to the dividend and what we saw as too optimistic revenue assumptions from consensus given the Asian growth outlook and US rate picture." After strong capital build in the third quarter, increased optimism around HSBC's APAC loan growth and a sharp increase in US interest rate expectations we are now modelling earnings ahead of consensus for 2016 to 2019 estimates. While we still see better value elsewhere we no longer see material downside risk to the share price from here, said the note. HSBC's share price rose 2.99% to 645.60p at 0938 GMT on Tuesday.|
|Can't see why this is up so much today?|
|Yes was tracking itv but am already in ETO and also overweight in CARD which is doing miserably right now but a solid LT hold I feel. Will continue to hold HSBC as if it does attack that high cost base, it could further re rate and share repurchase still to complete, at 7 I would be very twitchy though|
|fozzyb, GSK,ITV,or VOD,look good value atm.But if you own CARD put the proceeds from HSBC into CARD.Has you know near a year low and oversold.|
|Anyone else holding with a view to selling a few/ top slicing? I will have to let a few out at 665 but the question is rotate into what?|
|Was in profit momentarily on 1 of my 3 holdings.|
|In the old days, interest rates were higher. 0.05% on £1billion is.......£500,000. It's a fleabite in any terms.|
|jeffian, you really do not have a clue do you? That retail accounts have pennies in them, many tiny business including mine have many hundreds of thousands of pounds. Larger businesses, many millions of pounds. In the old days, overnight lending for the average 3 partner Solicitor account generated sufficient interest to employ their secretarial staff.
And the same with travel agents and any other small business holding deposit.
At the height of the financial crisis, we would receive a weekly telephone call from our bankers assessing the movement of cash into our account and the timescale against which it would be drawn.
Even a small movement in interest payable can and does affect some accounts. We were issuing between 8,000 and 15,000 cheques each week.... delaying the sending of these was beneficial to our bank and we have benefitted from suggesting such action at the time in our relationship today.|
|Great call on the trump victory Brahms. Only person I know who called that bang on.|
|There's an article in The Times business section today which indicates that the US authorities are concerned that a very high percentage of HSBC's existing compliance staff are not prepared to move to their new Birmingham HQ. Indeed, in the first draft of the authorities report it was referred to as "a crisis", but has been slightly downgraded from that now as HSBC believes there will be a sufficient pool of suitable new staff in the Birmingham area to reduce the problem.|
|Doh! I'm not talking about the fact they need to notify me about the change, I'm wondering what genius at the bank thought that adjustment was necessary. The notification probably cost them more than the savings they'll make and the fact that half of nothing is nothing is just rubbing customers' noses in the dirt.|
|jeffian, it is a change to the terms and conditions. That the actual amount is negligible, it still is a change.
The change is a halving of the interest payable....|
|jeffian.... blame the banking regulations.|
|As a customer, I've just been notified that the interest they pay on my deposits will reduce from 0.1% to 0.05%........! I don't get it. They already pay nothing and now they'll pay less and the benefit to them will be negligible. What's it all about? These are crazy times.|
|We had completed 59% of our $2.5bn equity buy-back at 31 October. We expect to finish the programme by the end of 2016 or early in the first quarter of 2017, depending on market trading volumes in the fourth quarter.|
|Thanks Brahms, my thoughts exactly though I haven't yet taken a spread bet on a Trump victory, which is looking more likely every day. I did sell my HSBA, this morning along with Barclays and a few retailers but like you I've kept my oil and resource stocks. Hard to tell what kind of fall we might see if he does win but I'm fairly certain there would be one, though I'm not sure the market would be much more impressed with a Clinton win given the circumstances. I've freed up some cash anyway so whatever happens I cab react accordingly.Good luck to you too.|
|I think its transpiring as I imagined it since last Friday with the FBI coming out with their announcement in that markets will gradually sell off in the sudden realisation that Trump could actually do it. If he does, (I have a decent spread bet on that) then indeed, markets probably will see a bit of a dive. As to the dust settling after and where the mkts gravitate to, only time will tell. Not sure if we will see such a good rally as we have seen in the FTSE since Brexit but then again what do I know..... Some retired UK military guy yesterday said that Trump could actually be positive for international relations/peace with the key super powers and I have to agree. Over time as always markets will calm i'm sure and what we will see will only be more buying opportunities.
Just got to keep enough in the locker to take advantage of those times.
For me, the resource sector (mining/gas)should benefit over time and believe we are in for another positive cycle coming up.
|Brahms, like you I have concerns over the US election and am considering selling to lock in recent games, Barclays too. What do you think the effect will be on a Trump win and which sectors do you think would be hit or helped most?|
|breaking uptrend support and sold yesterday the majority and small today. Completely out. Will restock after the US elections. Been a fine run and will get on board again before the next bumper divi in the new year.|
|For those following Garycook's advice, many brokers will accept orders on a kill or fill basis. It is therefore up to the indvidual to place such imposition daily in many instances.
The obvious and, dare I say it, old fashioned way to ensure that your shares are not loaned out are to hold certificates for those shares.
But, if you really believe that an ordnary punter with up to say £100k tied up in a single equity is going to make the slightest difference if a pension fund starts to move money around, then you are mistaken. At best will only learn of things an hour or so after the event, but more likely a few days later.
The direction for many company share prices is only partly based on fundamental analysis with the emphasis on algorithims placing deals based on that analysis. It provides volume where none existed in tiny but frequent bargains. Market makers can be long or short of stock and do not need to notify the market.|
|Only if the broker breaks FCA rules, which IMV makes them crooks:
|No it can be done with any broker !!!|
