|Italy approves a €20bn bailout plan for its banks
|Indeed, I hold GSK, ITV and VOD (along with 30 other UK equities in SIPP portfolio). Actually I added to my holdings in all 3 this month and have just banked profits from EZJ. APF and NESN have done well this year but the 2 real winners were PROX and IGE.
I am also planning a gradual de-risking over the next year so will be reducing exposure to FTSE 350 companies.
The equity I have high hopes for is VLS starting around April/May time for capital growth.|
|E.Jones,Good for you.See CARD,GSK,ITV,and VOD are starting to recover from recent lows.|
|Added a few more this morning - not at the best price, but am just re-balancing my SIPP.
Looking back on the year, I have had more winners than losers so am on track to recover from the ghastly year which was 2015.|
|Sorry, no idea.|
|Hi Phil is marko stil around not heard from him for a while ta|
|Follow through and at BARC.|
|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....|
