|Could Barclays, HSBC, RBS and Lloyds face bankruptcy?
US judges have raised the prospect of UK high street banks Barclays, HSBC, Royal Bank of Scotland and Lloyds facing penalties of billions of dollars for manipulating interest rates.
"These lawsuits are separate from the sprawling criminal and civil probes around Libor rigging, which began in 2008 and have implicated traders around the world," notes the Journal. The largest penalty so far handed down was $2.5bn (£1.71bn) to Deutsche Bank.
|A trial alleging that Royal Bank of Scotland’s Libor-related problems were known about at the highest level kicks off at the High Court on Thursday.
|RBS is now at the stage of transferring Williams & Glyn on to the new system. The bank told analysts that systems were being tested, and different customer groups could start being moved on to the platform in the late summer. Williams & Glyn’s 6,000 staff are now on a separate payroll system.|
|But the bank have already signalled a delay in when the can pay because of w&g|
Similarly, buying RBS (LSE: RBS) could be a shrewd move. The part-nationalised bank may have fallen in value by 16% this year, but its financial performance is very much on the up. For example, RBS is due to increase its earnings by around 40% next year and such a rapid rate of growth means that it has a forward P/E ratio of only 11.2.
Furthermore, RBS is expected to rapidly increase dividends per share over the medium term. In fact, its yield is forecast to reach 1.5% next year and with the bank due to pay out only 16% of profit as a dividend, there's tremendous scope for a rapid rise in shareholder payouts, which could push its share price higher.|

Frankly, the statement from RBS is ‘we just don’t know how long it’s going to take’. But there’s now unequivocal confirmation that it’s a requirement in order to pay out excess capital

|go on smurfy tell us|
|smurfy.....I think you have piled tons in like me.
But my view has changed since price action over past 2-3 weeks and I sense institutions will slowly be snapping up shares. Never know we might see a big bid come in for shares too!|
|cfc1, not adding unless l see under 200p. You don't want to know how much l have invested here already.|
|Smurfy....its time to buy.....yep, agree with comments...I ranted the other week about fire the CEO but this 'dog' will turn. it is turning and those who have been here a long long while will get rewarded!
Now is the time for buying RBS and tucking away.. WE WILL see DoJ settlement wWE WILL see W&G disposed off and WE WILL see a divi return.|
|Careful, the profit here is 200-400m a quarter. Problem is, they give it away each time!|
|careful many in the City will have taken a long weekend.|
|last year tesco wrote off 50% of its assets.
from £15bn to about £7bn
that means effectively that all of the cash they invested in the business over the years was useless.
they never did make any profit.
MKS about to do the same, a new CEO time to 'fess up.
RBS have made huge losses over the last 15 years.
the only way to make cash from shares is to nip in, take a gain and nip out again.
Most are about as worthless as Tracy Emins unmade bed...but potentially profitable.|
|trading volumes in shares are very low today.
the cult of equities is dying out.
we are beginning to realise that minus accountancy fiddles most these companies are profitless.
all of a sudden a steady 1% is looking good.|
|without the legacy problems they are making a profit, and that's with the lowest net margin interest in years. so any rise in rates and resolution to past issues this should be in a very good place going forward.|
|thanks for your wisdom, maxk|
|Will this dog break 250 or will it trip down the stairs yet again like a drunk who maintains the RBS IT systems?|
