Lloyds down 22%, so with increase dividend coming and capital growth, under 60p must be a screaming BUY.

"The bank acts as a barometer of the UK economy and is also the UK’s biggest mortgage lender, so any signs that lending is slowing down or house prices tanking will worry FTSE investors." same old nonsense..house prices tanking? Do us a favour!!What is going on here is young journalists with no sense of economic history in the UK trying to wish the market down so they can buy the house they should have bought 5 years ago. It will only worry investors if they are irredeemably stupid..like the journalist in question.

Battered banks poised to reveal whether a new crisis has begun Fears that the banking sector is facing a new onslaught of pressures dominated markets last week. Global bank shares were sold off – the index of major banking shares in the UK at one point hit its lowest levels since the depths of the recession – and questions were being asked about the impact of low interest rates amid concerns about the possibility of a global economic slowdown. While much of the focus was on big banks in the eurozone – Deutsche and Société; Générale – analysts pointed out that the share prices of UK banks were already pricing in another global financial crisis when it hadn’t even happened. So when the UK’s major players reveal in the coming weeks how they have fared in 2015, they will be doing so in the most febrile atmosphere since the Lehman Brothers collapse seven-and-a-half years ago. Analysts will be looking for confirmation that another 2008-style crisis is not about to the grip the sector. The gloom may well be overdone. The stock market value of some of Britain’s biggest banks is lower than the value of their assets, notably HSBC, Standard Chartered and Barclays. HSBC – one of the biggest constituents of the FTSE 100 – has been trading at levels not seen since 2009. Standard Chartered is selling for prices last witnessed a quarter of a century ago. In the depths of last weeks’s market chaos, shares in Barclays and Royal Bank of Scotland hit their lowest levels since 2012 while George Osborne has already had to postpone his plan to sell off shares in Lloyds Banking Group to the public. However, the bombed-out banks came off their lows by the end of last week, and analysts point out that all hold more capital – the key measure of their financial health – than they did before the start of 2008. The results of stress tests on the major players announced in December by the Bank of England showed that they were all strong enough to withstand a downturn, and Threadneedle Street said it was not concerned about the strength of the system. Analysts have calculated that Europe’s banks are holding €700m worth of capital more than they were at the time of the last crisis and have disposed of their riskiest assets. So financial strength shouldn’t be a problem, and no one is expecting to hear the likes of Barclays, HSBC or Lloyds report losses. However, there are headwinds. The ability of banks to generate revenue will be a focus; the low interest rate environment is punishing them as it restricts the profits on their lending. Any sign that provisions for bad debts are starting to go up dramatically will be regarded with concern, while banks are expected to set aside more money to cover scandals, such as the mis-selling of payment protection insurance (PPI). Investors will be watching for any impact on the payouts they receive through dividends – particularly how that compares with the total spent on staff bonuses. Many banks are expected to publish annual reports alongside their results, showing remuneration for board members. Lloyds Banking Group The market rout has driven shares in Lloyds to 57p, their lowest price since April 2013, quashing any short-term chance of the government further selling its stake in the bank, which was bailed out in 2008 with £20bn of taxpayer money. That stake has fallen from 43% to below 10%, and the bank will hope it can convince investors that its ability to generate dividends will put fuel back into the shares. But hanging over the bank is the prospect of another provision for PPI – its bill is already over £13bn. Analysts at Jefferies said the extra PPI provision, which they believe could amount to £2bn in the fourth quarter, would make it difficult for Lloyds to promise any special dividends. The bank acts as a barometer of the UK economy and is also the UK’s biggest mortgage lender, so any signs that lending is slowing down or house prices tanking will worry FTSE investors. http://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/feb/13/banks-enter-reporting-season-in-shadow-of-lehman-brothers

Said 160P Who said? I am not surprise many punters are losing money... all I hear is..He said,she said and Bloomberg said.. LOL.. 1.60P... Dont make me laugh.. Bankers have to find new ways of making money that don't just involve betting the hot table and taking out instant billion-dollar profits. They have to go back to building real businesses and being content with gradual returns over time... than we might see 1.60 but it will take 10 to 15 years

Big money is trying to stomp out the fear gripping the markets by putting its cash where its mouth is. Big banks, big-time executives and big companies are all digging deep to buy this market - providing a much-needed bid for stocks as fear cascades and threatens to turn the sell-off into something worse. The effort seems to be paying off - for now. Following days of vicious selling, the Standard & Poor's 500 is up more than 1% and the Dow Jones industrial average is rallying more than 200 points to 15,868. Investors fretting that the market's declines this year is a harbinger of big problems need hand to hold. The Standard & Poor's 500 has sunk 10.5% this year as investors fret over dropping oil prices, economic slowing in Asia and Europe and rising bond defaults. But seeing big investors step up, hold their noses and buy gives the market an vote of confidence that speaks louder than anything economists, market forecasters or even Federal Reserve head Janet Yellen can say. hxxp://www.usatoday.com/story/money/markets/2016/02/12/big-money-digs-deep-prop-up-stock-market/80287176/

savogi, Do you think that Lloyds would have needed insurance if the hbos merger would not have taken place? Shareholders were not told of the billions loaned to hbos when asked to vote for or against the deal. How much actual cash did the UK gov give lloy?

Fair point UtyINV. I understand your contempt, and don't expect everybody to share my view. I just accept it as part of the bigger picture, and have come to realise that when boards like this are suddenly busy with harbingers of doom going "New World Order coming Lloy 0p" it's usually a signal that it's a great time to buy.

Dear posters Don't get carried away..Only a dead cat bounce.. No doubt FED is still FEEDING the Monster twice a day.. Dow is still trading just below 16000, and yet the whole world is on fire..It doesn't add up. But what does any more? The Fed is like a drunk driver running over pedestrians and then blaming the pedestrians for being in the way.....Things could easily spin out of control because of the Fed's lack of understanding of how the emerging markets are really reacting to and dependent upon the Fed manipulation.. Now they are looking at "Negative rates".. After all,if low interest rates are good, wouldn't negative rates be better? LOL someone was complaining about PPI and was moaning that "banks are not charities" What is wrong with these people? Do they never learn anything? I asked..You claim that they are not charities,yet they clearly think that the tax payers are, every time they go bust they come begging for help...taxpayer liabilities that governments have pushed into the banking sector. Without those trillions,those banks wouldn't be here today..And with the trillions,the whole house is still coming down anyway, no matter all the talk about a recovery

So in effect, Gold in your case is really irrelevant, you are in fact a grubby derivatives trader _________________________________________________ Of course Gold is irrelevant to me.. Do I care.. of course not.. But what I would say..Don't blame the shorter. One need to understand the fundamentals and never forget them. Other players only drive value of the stock in the short term. In the long term, the company fundamentals will determine the value of the business. But that is all history. Has the corruption, greed, and malfeasance which pervaded the banks gone away? It does not appear so.Saved from bankruptcy by taxpayer funding and printing toilet paper..... Of course is stress full, If you can maintain huge expenditures on corporate jets and executive "sales" outings.

Fovargue ' Short sellers taking their own risks, and are exposed to potential losses when they get it wrong too'. Only if you are dealing in your own shares! Many young kids working for the 'City' operating the algorithms for the Hedge Funds do not take a risk. They will place bets and try and scam the system by selling what they don't own, force the price down and then buy the shares back at a lower price and hand them back to the rightful owner (that is if they actually loaned the shares and hadn't committed 'Naked Short Selling'). If they get it wrong they don't give a sh.t saying 'So What' and try and get another job elsewhere or take less of a bonus. Whilst the professional who has saved all his life, accepting responsibilities such as keeping a family, sending kids to university providing for pensions etc get well and truly screwed. These kids don't play by the rules, don't have responsibilities, morals etc and one day they will catch it......! As for GO he has never really needed to work for a living and as a consequence is so out of touch with the destruction going on in the real world, a destruction created by his hedge fund chums. He will NEVER make PM and that is from a long term Centre Right voter!

I'm holding with a very long term view, shorters and this recent turmoil don't worry me in the least. There'll always be peaks and troughs, cycles of panic selling and rises that warrant a correction. If I lose £20 on Cambridge winning the boat race, I've no issue with the guy who bet on Oxford. Short sellers taking their own risks, and are exposed to potential losses when they get it wrong too.
