If their appeal over the ECN affair is thrown out maybe some hefty claims for market manipulation could follow on top of the ECN payments. Appeal being heard 25/26th inst.eithin
b.w : You were right regarding short term emphasis of PPI which clearly enabled the hedgies to have a field day yesterday.The future dividend yield should have been the focus. Doubtless that will come into 'play' when 'the hedgies' so decide. Doubtless the fall in the share price was further exaggerated by the triggering of 'stops' many of which I suspect were around the 84 to 84.5p level which sent the price down a further point. In a computerised world it is SO easy for the hedgies to make short term 'killings' even on solid recovery FTSE stocks.wendsworth

The recovery of Lloyds Banking Group is still being hampered by the PPI mis-selling scandal, as the bank reported another £1.4bn of provisions to cover compensation claims in the first half of the year. The bank also set aside another £435m to cover misconduct, including packaged current account mis-selling and a fine for poor complaints handling. But despite the heavy fines, profits still rose 38pc to £1.2bn in the six-month period, allowing the bank to pay a 0.75p per share dividend, worth £535m. Chief executive Antonio Horta-Osorio said the dividend payout will make it easier for the Government to sell down its shareholding as it makes the stock more attractive to income-seeking investors. In the past six months, the taxpayers' stake in the bank has fallen from 25pc to below 15pc, raising around £6bn for the Treasury. "The end is in sight – over the next 12 months, unless there is any specific point in the market, we will be able to completely return taxpayers’ money back at a profit, and I think that will be a moment of huge pride for all the teams at Lloyds," said Mr Horta-Osorio. “When Lloyds was a dividend-paying stock before the crisis, around 26pc of Lloyds’ investors were dividend-seeking funds, which went to zero as those investors exited during the crisis as Lloyds stopped paying the dividend. "We always thought the investors would progressively come back into the stock, which has clearly happened,” he said. “I think that was a critical point in enabling the Government to sell 10pc of the bank in only six months, that amounts to around £6bn in just half a year. And it is clearly more attractive to a potential retail offering, as by then Lloyds will have established a credible policy of going into a progressive and sustainable dividend policy.” However, analysts had expected a bigger payout and a smaller PPI charge. "This quarter was supposed to be all about the dividend – payout and guidance - and that first-half payout disappointed. The 0.75p figure was in line with our numbers, but lower than consensus forecasts of 0.9p," said Chirantan Barua, from Berenberg Research. But Lloyds is also considering paying a special dividend this year, in addition to a final dividend at the end of 2015. Analysts at UBS and Nomura are both predicting a final dividend of 2p per share and a special dividend of around 3p - payouts which together would total roughly £3.5bn. Meanwhile, revenues at the bank rose 2pc on higher interest income, while costs remained flat and impairments dived by 75pc, in part because the bank is selling portfolios of non-performing loans. Lloyds attributed the growth in part to the UK’s economic recovery, noting that its small business lending increased by 5pc and consumer finance lending increased by 17pc.broadwood

Lloyds reportedly targeting acquisitions for first time since bailout By Michele Maatouk | Sharecast – 17 hours ago LONDON (ShareCast) - (ShareCast News) - Lloyds Banking Group is reportedly starting to look at acquisitions for the first time since it required its state bailout. According to a person with knowledge of the matter cited by Bloomberg, the lender is considering buying loan books in areas such as consumer finance and credit cards, where it aims to strengthen its market position. The news came as Lloyds released its first-half results on Friday, posting a 15% year-on-year rise in underlying profits and an interim dividend of 0.75p per share. Lloyds received a £20bn bailout from the UK taxpayer during the 2008 financial crisis. At 1519 BST on Friday, Lloyds shares were down 2.6% at 83.79p.ibug

Italy is the most likely country to leave the euro HTTP://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonkblog/wp/2015/07/30/italy-is-the-most-likely-country-to-leave-the-euro/savogi
LOL, More bad news from Euro... Like i have argued for many years that the plan all along for Euro-zone was to engineer a crisis so they would be able to force it to make sure the ordinary people get into more debt,as a result they would have more power over these countries,and force huge wealth transfer from ordinary people to corporate elites. If you think about it,everyone uses the same money but keeps their own national budgets and tax regimes. This is obviously a fatal flaw which would doom the system. That means there is no benefit to be in the Euro-zone anyway.It is all full of hot air and empty promises. They always knew from day-one Greece would never be able to pay them back. And than wait for the crisis and use the system to bully and control these countries! Hence Goldman Sachs made a secret deal with Greece to help it mask its vast debts.So what does that tell you about the overall picture of Euro.. It looks very obvious that Brussels has caused Greece's disastrous economic performance with the intention to put Greece even deeper in debt.. It is important to point out that the difference between Greece and the rest of the other Euro-Zone is cosmetic and very temporary. So it is very clear that their intention has been all along to conquer individual country outright through financial oppression with "FAKE MONEY". Here we have it: Italy Youth Unemployment Hits Record High 44.2%, Concerns Rising "Recession Exit May Be Unsustainable" HTTP://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-07-31/italy-youth-unemploypment-hits-record-high-442-concerns-rising-recession-exit-may-besavogi

NOW THIS IS POSITIVE,CHEERED ME UP NO END! U.K. regulators look set to give banks a looser rein than many thought—at least when it comes to returning cash to shareholders. Lloyds’ shareholders can look forward to extra payouts following the U.K. bank’s first-half earnings report. That was the big positive behind Lloyds Banking Group ’s first-half results, which were hurt by a £1.4 billion charge ($2.18 billion) related to insurance mis-selling that was about double expectations. Lloyds only paid its first dividend of any kind since the financial crisis at the end of last year. But on Friday it said that from now on it would consider paying out surplus capital in special dividends, or through share buybacks, when its core equity Tier 1 ratio was above roughly 13%. What is important about this statement is that the language has to be preapproved by the U.K. bank watchdog. That is a positive for other banks and adds an incentive to speed up any needed balance-sheet repair. Investors had hoped Lloyds would be in the position to start making special payouts soon, but plenty of fears remained that cautious regulators would block them. That now seems less likely. Lloyds’ capital ratio was over 13% at the half year and it looks likely to hit 14% by the year-end. This suggests investors can look forward to extra payouts with the bank’s full-year results. Each percentage point of the capital ratio above 13% that Lloyds holds is worth about £2.25 billion. In comparison, the ordinary dividend of 0.75 pence a share declared for the first half will cost £535 million. Most analysts expect the bank will spend twice that on the second-half dividend. Given implied regulatory consent, it is hard to see what might stop the bank paying out all or most of its year-end surplus. And that would give shareholders a return of more than double the ordinary dividend. The capital forecast also includes the costs of compensation for mis-selling payment protection insurance. With those factored in, it would take something dramatic to threaten Lloyds’ capital base. Something like a U.K. house-price crash, or a regulatory move to break up or cut back its dominant retail banking market sha.cm44
