jasonblue66: Lloyds share price: UBS points to improved outlook for bailed-out lender UBS has named Lloyds Banking Group (LON:LLOY) as one of its "top picks in the European banking sector," lifting its earnings forecasts amid an improved outlook for the bailed-out lender. The move came after the FTSE 100 bank, part owned by the UK government, updated investors on its full-year performance last year, revealing that its profit had more than doubled in 2016.Lloyds' share price has been steady in London in today's session, having inched 0.09 percent higher to 69.34p as of 14:21 GMT, slightly outperforming the benchmark FTSE 100 index which currently stands at 7,243.41 points, flat in percentage terms. The group's shares have added more than 11 percent so far this year, as compared with a 1.4-percent gain in the Footsie.UBS, which rates Lloyds as a 'buy,' lifted its price target on the stock from 75p to 80p today, and said that the stock was one of its "top picks in the European banking sector". Proactive Investors quoted the analysts as pointing out that the FTSE 100 group's adjusted profit before tax for the final quarter of 2016 was nine percent ahead of consensus, with "better-than-expected income, costs and loan losses."As a result of the 'improved outlook', the broker lifted its adjusted earnings per share forecasts for 2017 and 2018 by 11-13 percent, while near-term dividend per share expectations have been increased by 18-30 percent.UBS further argues that with Brexit on the horizon, the bailed-out lender is well-placed to mitigate any fallout from negotiations."With the UK due to embark on EU exit negotiations in due course, we prize Lloyds' highly collateralised loan portfolio and flexibility to manage funding costs and opex to deliver strong returns and capital to shareholders," the Swiss bank pointed out, as quoted by Proactive Investors.The 22 analysts offering 12-month price targets for Lloyds for the Financial Times have a median target of 75.00p, with a high estimate of 93.00p and a low estimate of 40.00p. As of February 25, the consensus forecast amongst 28 polled investment analysts covering the bailed-out lender has it that the company will outperform the market.As of 14:56 GMT, Monday, 27 February, Lloyds Banking Group share price is 69.31p.

jasonblue66: by Tsveta ZikolovaThursday, 23 Feb 2017, 08:10 GMTLloyds share price: Government moves to trim stake after group's results The Treasury has trimmed its holding in Lloyds Banking Group (LON:LLOY) further, with the latest sale bringing the taxpayer's interest in the bailed-out lender to below four percent. The government has taken advantage of yesterday's rise in Lloyds' shares, prompted by the bank's full-year results.Lloyds' share price soared in the previous session, adding 4.39 percent to close at 69.70p. The shares have gained more than 11 percent over the past year, but continue to trade below the government's break-even price of 73.6p.The Treasury announced in a statement this morning that it had sold more shares in Lloyds via its pre-arranged trading plan, taking its stake into the bailed-out lender to just under four percent. The government noted that the latest sale meant that the Treasury had recovered £19 billion of the £20.3 billion taxpayers injected into the bank during the financial crisis."Lloyds' strong annual results show that we are in a good position to continue to reduce our shareholding and recover all of the money the tax-payer injected into the bank during the financial crisis," Economic Secretary to the Treasury, Simon Kirby, commented in the statement.The sale followed Lloyds' results yesterday when the bank revealed that its reported profit had more than doubled in 2016. The bank further announced that it would distribute both an ordinary and a special dividend.Analysts have hailed the results, with RBC Capital markets noting that the group had brightened the sector with full year pre-tax profits of £4 billion. Sharecast quoted the broker as pointing out that the lender's capital and dividend strength was a 'key attraction' for investors.Shore Capital meanwhile commented that Lloyds' results justified its faith in the bank as an income stock."We therefore remain positive on Lloyds' shares, viewing them as being attractively valued compared to its large quoted banking peers and also continue to view the name as a core holding for income funds seeking exposure to the banking sector," the broker's analyst Gary Greenwood said, as quoted by Citywire.As of 08:11 GMT, Thursday, 23 February, Lloyds Banking Group share price is 70.35p.

smartypants: robwt I have been posting in pictures because it seems that "people" on here find it hard to understand the written word... but, just for you I will try to explain my point...again AS simply as I can.. So you have LLOY shares, you are waiting 6 weeks(?) to receive a div payment of 2.2p Is that correct?, I will assume yes Yesterday LLOY share price reached 71p (70.5p most of morning) You did not sell them, you are waiting to receive 2.2p for every share you hold, paid in 6 weeks.... are you still with me, forgive me for posting things you may already know.. LLOY share price is now..let me check...68.5p SO... from high of 71p (that you didn't sell at), to 68.5p, the difference is ? Shall we wait for jack to work it out ? 2.5p by not selling at yesterdays high, you have already lost more than the div is going to pay you, and you still have to wait 6 weeks !!! Spot the Muppet ?

robwt: I can't understand why all of a sudden we have the subject of consolidation or reverse split. It does nothing for the small shareholder, it stops many people from buying the share. Lloyds should let organic growth from the success of the bank put this share to over 100p and not mess with consolidation. If Lloyds management decide on consolidation, it is mandatory. Shareholders have no ability to refuse it. Of course, shareholders can sell their stock before a consolidation if they so choose. Consolidation is often undertaken to increase a firm’s share price. One motivation is that stock exchanges have minimum share prices. Another motivation is the “respectability” factor – a low share price is considered a sign of weakness by investors, who may tend to avoid the shares. All a bit late now. Lloyds has come a long way since the Government bailout. The management are doing well, there is no need for consolidation.

broadwood: Today's gospel according to the Motley. There’s no denying that the Lloyds (LSE: LLOY) recovery from its bailout in 2008 has been nothing short of impressive. The bank, which was on the verge of bankruptcy at the time of the bailout, has since recovered to be one of the best capitalised and most efficient banks in Europe. What’s more, after the acquisition of credit card group MBNA from its former owners at the end of last year, Lloyds is now back on a growth trajectory. But despite Lloyds’ impressive turnaround and the bank’s newfound thirst for growth, the market continues to avoid its shares. Indeed, over the past two years, shares in Lloyds have fallen by 11% excluding dividends, a drop brought into even sharper focus at present given rival Barclays‘ recent share price surge. What’s holding Lloyds back?  The one main factor that seems to be holding shares in Lloyds back is trust. Even nine years on from the onset of the financial crisis investors are still finding it difficult to trust banks. And who can blame them? The entire European banking sector is currently facing numerous headwinds, which are holding back earnings and non-performing loans are eroding capital buffers. Unfortunately, there’s no sign these pressures will dissipate anytime soon. Lloyds isn’t entirely immune from these pressures, but over the past few years the bank has shown that it’s a much more stable and productive institution than the majority of its peers both at home and overseas — a fact City analysts have been extremely keen to point out. At the top of its game  A recent broker note from analysts at Barclays proclaimed Lloyds can generate a consistent, sustainable 13% return on tangible equity (a measure of banking profitability) every year for the next three years. By comparison, Deutsche Bank and Barclays reported a return on tangible equity of 2% and 3.6% respectively for the third quarter 2016. Even Lloyds’ American peers, which are usually considered to be in better health than European banks, are lagging the UK lending behemoth. JP Morgan, Bank of America and Morgan Stanley reported a return on equity of 10%, 7.3% and 8.7% respectively for the third quarter. On top of the sector-leading profitability ratios, analysts at Barclays also expect Lloyds to return as much as £10bn of capital to investors over the next few years to 2019. Lloyds’ management has long stated that the bank will return any excess cash to investors and the £10bn capital return will translate into an estimated 15p per share, around a quarter of the company’s current market capitalisation. The bottom line So overall, it appears that investors’ lack of trust in the banking sector in general is holding back Lloyds’ shares. However, for patient long-term investors, this lack of confidence is no reason not to invest. Lloyds is arguably one of the best banks in Europe, the shares trade at an attractive 9.2 times forward earnings, support a dividend yield of 3.4% and if City analysts are to be believed, shareholders are set for a 15p per share cash return over the next three years.

freddie01: Why Lloyds Banking Group plc is set to beat the FTSE 100 in 2017 Lloyds(LSE: LLOY) has endured a difficult 2016, with the bank's share price falling by 13% year-to-date. However, it could have been much worse. Investor sentiment in the part-nationalised bank has strengthened after the initial shock of the EU referendum result. And the performance of the UK economy has held up better than forecast in the second half of the year. Despite this, Lloyds has lagged the FTSE 100 by 25% this year. But looking ahead to next year, I feel that the tables could turn. Brexit challenges The bank faces problems associated with Brexit. While the UK economy has held up well thus far, heightened uncertainty could become a key theme of the next year. This could lead to downgrades on GDP forecasts and cause profitability at UK-focused banks to come under pressure. However, Lloyds seems to be well-placed to deal with such Brexit-induced woes. For example, it has spent recent years becoming increasingly efficient and has made numerous job cuts, efficiencies and asset disposals. They've positioned the company as a relatively efficient bank among what remains a troubled sector. As such, it may be hit less hard than rivals and investor sentiment may therefore be higher than expected. The bank's valuation indicates that the market has already priced-in future difficulties. It trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 9.5, which shows that there's scope for a significantly higher rating. In fact, even a 50% rise in the bank's share price would equate to a P/E ratio of just 14.3. With the FTSE 100 being close to its all-time high, it lacks value appeal compared to Lloyds. Income potential It's not just on the valuation front that Lloyds impresses. With inflation forecast to rise to nearly 3% next year, higher yields and growing dividends could become increasingly in vogue. That's because investors may become concerned at the effect of higher inflation on their incomes, with weaker sterling likely to be a key feature of 2017. With a yield of 4.9%, Lloyds is a very strong income stock. It's due to raise dividends by almost 18% in 2017, which puts it on a forward yield of 5.8%. Despite such a large rise in dividends, the bank is still expected to cover its shareholder payouts around 1.8 times next year. This indicates that there's scope for further rises in future years without jeopardising the company's growth potential or financial standing. Index-beating outlook While 2016 has been a disappointing year for the bank, its prospects for 2017 are very bright. Brexit may cause volatility in its share price, but its improvements as a business in recent years have positioned it well to withstand the difficulties that may present themselves. The market already seems to have priced-in a difficult outlook, while the income potential on offer over the medium term could create heightened demand for the bank's shares next year. Therefore, I believe that FTSE 100-beating prospects may be just around the corner. hxxp://money.aol.co.uk/2016/12/17/why-lloyds-banking-group-plc-is-set-to-beat-the-ftse-100-in-2017/

excell1: tempus October 15 2016, 12:01am, The Times The Black Horse and an each-way bet Martin Waller The reaction of the Lloyds Banking Group share price after the government announced the sale of its remaining shares a week ago is an odd one. The shares fell by 4 per cent; they are still off 4 per cent after some recovery yesterday. It is not as if we didn’t know that the state still held 9.1 per cent and would be selling at some time. The shares will be dribbled out over a period of up to a year, starting date not known, so it is not like some massive rights issue hitting the market overnight. It has removed a degree of uncertainty over the sale. Whatever the rights and wrongs of not having a retail sale with a loyalty share bonus if you hold for long enough — the structure that was being considered — this has made the disposal of the shares a great deal simpler. Retail investors are quite at liberty to go into the market and buy the shares anyway, taking advantage of that fall in the price. Should they? There is no question that Lloyds, which is almost entirely UK-facing and has nearly a quarter of all retail accounts, is hugely cash-generative and that it has indicated, and past actions show, that the most likely option is that the cash will be paid back to investors. There are a few caveats, though. The first is the reason for the decline in the share price by more than a fifth since the start of the year, with a sharp drop after the EU referendum: that British exposure. Plainly, continuing low interest rates will hurt banks and cut the margins they make on lending. There will be a further unspecified drag from any UK economic slowdown. Some numbers out from the Bank of England only yesterday suggested that businesses are, indeed, pulling in their horns and borrowing less. By some estimates Lloyds will have approaching £3 billion of surplus capital by the end of the year. There are calls on this capital, though. The low bond yields available will mean further pressure on the pension fund and the need for top-ups. There is also the potential for further payment protection insurance claims. Lloyds has third-quarter figures out on October 26. One analyst says they could include an £800 million hit apiece from these in the figures. This is guesswork and the deadline for further PPI claims has been set for 2019, which gives the banks some degree of certainty. The biggest question over the dividend is the possible purchase by Lloyds, mooted for some months now, of MBNA, the huge credit card operation owned by Bank of America Merrill Lynch. This has about 11 per cent of the UK credit card market. Its owners are desperate to be shot of it. Lloyds is the only credible buyer, private equity aside, because Barclays is probably precluded owing to its ownership of Barclaycard. It makes a good fit with Lloyds, which wants to build up its credit card business. The price of the deal has been coming down. MBNA’s loan book is about £7 billion, but a buyer might be able to offer less than that. Any deal would add to earnings almost immediately but it would mean some limitation to Lloyds’ dividend growth, one of the main reasons for holding the shares. The bank paid 2.25p in dividends last year, along with a 0.5p special. Assume a decent increase and a repetition of that special and the shares yield more than 5.6 per cent, while that yield shoots up to approaching 8 per cent in 2018. An MBNA deal would lessen this, but the increase in earnings would boost the share price. On that basis, the shares look like a good two-way bet.

allinhope: Watching lloy share price is somewhat tiresome given the daily ups and downs in comparison to the 100 and peer banks. I know this is how the market operates but for some reason, as a lloy shareholder I can help feeling as there is something odd about lloy share movements. Thoughts anyone.
