> That BARC 6 month chart is grimI certainly hope the Feb-Nov trend has been broken as there's some evidence that we've formed an upward channel now.

I don't believe Barclays will double the dividend next year. YMMV.

Barclays appears to be undervalued in my opinion. It has a single digit P/E using this year’s forecast EPS figure. This suggests to me that the stock market is relatively downbeat about the company’s outlook. This could mean that Barclays is able to generate improving share price performance, with its double digit EPS growth forecast and the doubling of its dividend this year being potential catalysts.

Barclays ‘sacrificed trader’ to end rigging investigation Gurpreet Narwan January 13 2018, 12:01am, The Times Economics Banking The bank dismissed David Fotheringhame after the regulatory investigation The bank dismissed David Fotheringhame after the regulatory investigation OLIVER MORRIS/GETTY IMAGES Share Save Barclays offered up one of its traders as a “fall guy” to end a regulatory investigation, according to a former senior executive at the bank. David Fotheringhame, the bank’s former head of automated flow trading for electronic fixed income, was dismissed after a $150 million settlement between Barclays and the New York banking watchdog. In 2015 the regulator told the bank to eliminate his post after an investigation into Barclays’ “last look” trading policy. Last-look systems enable banks to delay their response to foreign exchange trades and to reject them if the price goes past a threshold during the “hold” period. The tool is designed to defend against “toxic” high-frequency traders who take advantage of the dramatic price shifts that occur in milliseconds. However, the regulator said that the system had been used as a “general filter” to reject customer orders that Barclays predicted would be unprofitable to the bank. Tim Cartledge, the bank’s former head of global electronic fixed-income currencies and commodities and Mr Fotheringhame’s former boss, said the “sham” dismissal had been designed to satisfy the regulator at a time when the bank was trying to end a wider investigation into foreign-exchange fixing. Mr Fotheringhame, who is suing for unfair dismissal, previously cited data that showed the last-look system had been “highly discriminating”; in its treatment of clients, evidence which he claimed was ignored by the bank. Barclays described Mr Fotheringhame’s claims as “misconceived” and raised doubts about the conduct of Mr Cartledge while he was an employee.

Fun banking facts: you can pick up Barclays shares cheaper than Royal Bank of Scotland’s in terms of valuation. That’s right, the stock market thinks less of a bank that turns a profit (mostly) and pays a small dividend, than it does of Royal Bank of Scotland, which hasn’t made money in nearly ten years. Optimists think it might pay its first divvy this year, but only if the fates align. Poor Jes Staley. Upon the release of the half-year numbers, the Barclays CEO said that the bank’s “restructuring is complete”. READ MORE Barclays suffers £1.2bn loss for first half of the year Former senior Barclays bankers in court over fraud charges Qatar owns Canary Wharf and Heathrow – now Barclays is a problem “From 1 July we are the bank that we want to be,” he boldly declared. If you forgive the thumping paper loss he made on pulling out of Africa, which marred the numbers, he also had a pre-tax profit of £2.34bn to talk about. And yet he still wasn’t able to find any love in the heart of the city. Why is there so little faith in this transatlantic super bank “with global reach”, particularly when compared with the industry’s problem child? Perhaps it’s because, as far as the City is concerned, RBS is fixing its problems. It has one more really big nasty to get out of the way. That would be the packaging up and sale of dodgy mortgages that went on in the run up to the financial crisis. It will cost RBS (and therefore we taxpayers) several billion pounds. 6 Early Signs Your Liver Is Damaged ILoveFacts Revealed: Brilliant Way To Check If You Had PPI Quick PPI SUV Dealerships Offering Unsold Inventory For Up To 70% Off The Listed Prices. SUV | Sponsored Links by Taboola Sponsored Links Once that’s done, however, the worst should be out of the way. I’d personally be a little more sceptical than London’s institutional investors are. RBS for many years looked like a rogue bank. To my mind, it has a lot still to prove. But if you look closely at Barclays, you start to see why the City might have a point with its unflattering comparison of the two. Barclays is the banking industry’s geezer! It’s a little bit fly. No bothersome British Government bail outs for us. We’ll get our clever chaps to rustle up some Qatari cash to keep the Treasury’s hands off us. The consequences of that decision can be seen within the pages of legal disclosures that make the life of a banking reporter easy. When there’s nothing much to say about the results, you can always, but always, find some fun in the Barclays small print. Forget the £700m tossed on to the PPI pile that made all the headlines. That’s just a common or garden misdeed that every one of the industry’s big guns have got a piece of. It’s Barclays more esoteric troubles that worry people, and they should. Numerous authorities are investigating the Qatari mess, and there will be civil actions to contend with too (the Qataris invested on very favourable terms and made a mint as a result). With the Americans heavily involved, it’s clearly going to get very expensive. And that’s not all. Barclays is fighting the US Department of Justice over the same mortgage issue RBS is preparing to settle, the only bank to take that tack. Oh, and we shouldn’t forget Mr Staley’s attempt to out a whistleblower who upset one of his mates. Sorry, who tabled certain allegations against a senior director he had brought in. Barclays describes this as a mistake, having concluded that Mr Staley must have thought it was ok to do what he did even though it was against the bank’s policy. It will be interesting to see if the Financial Conduct Authority agrees with that assessment. Business picture of the day 9 show all And so it goes, through those pages and pages of teeny tiny print. The bank may be strategically where Mr Staley wants it to be, and it surely does look to be a lot more focussed than it once did. But culturally? You have to wonder, and that might go some way towards explaining why the shares are so cheap. The industry’s super fly guys aren’t taking their stock holders very high. Perhaps they need a new approach.

Jes Staley’s latest problem at Barclays? Not enough people want to leave. The bank has seen a decline in staff voluntarily leaving in the aftermath of Brexit, which managers are attributing partly to fears their positions may be relocated if they switch to a rival less tied to London, according to people familiar with the trend. The lower attrition is forcing managers to reassess their workforce planning and recruitment models as Barclays tries to eliminate £1bn of costs, they said. The lender’s overall 12-month rolling voluntary attrition dropped to about 10 per cent in October from 12 per cent at the same time last year, according to the people. In the UK, the measure fell 2 percentage points to 8 per cent, they said. A Barclays spokesman declined to comment. READ MORE Barclays Updates Whole Foods' Integration with Amazon The drop is most notable in technology and operations. Among the 30,000 people that work in the chief operating office -- which accounts for about a third of employees and is run by Paul Compton -- the rolling attrition rate has recently fallen to around 10 per cent after staying at about 13 per cent for at least the past three years, said the people, who asked not to be identified speaking about private data. Impatient Investors Investors are impatient to see evidence that the chief executive’s turnaround is working, particularly as the share price has slid 12 per cent this year. Barclays has pledged to reduce annual costs to between £13.6bn and £13.9bn by 2019 from £14.6bn last year. Cutting staff expenses will be key to achieving the bank’s recently-announced objective to generate a return on tangible equity of greater than 9 per cent in 2019 and more than 10 per cent the following year.

The bank’s stance contrasts with that of JPMorgan boss Jamie Dimon, who has said 4,000 roles may be moved inside the EU, while Deutsche Bank is planning to move a similar number to Germany, Bloomberg News has reported. London’s information technology staff are also facing the prospect of their roles moving to lower-cost European Union countries in eastern Europe. Next year, Goldman Sachs is seeking to hire another 250 IT specialists in Poland to add to the 525 people already working in its Warsaw technology hub. JPMorgan said in September it will hire at least 3,000 people within three years for a new office in the same city. Technology Company? Mr Staley has said he wants to turn Barclays into a technology company and believes it needs to develop its own proprietary systems if it wants to stand out from the competition. The lender is choosing to increasingly make senior level hires directly from industry, hiring from companies such as PayPal and AT&T, one of the people said. The hires are seen as part of this drive to become a serious fintech company, they added. To fulfill the chief executive’s promise, the number of managing directors that work in operations and technology this year was increased by about 30 per cent as the bank plays catch up to rivals such as JPMorgan that have been outspending them, the people said. This jump in senior management numbers will result in a large short-term increase in the company’s wage bill, with the bank expecting expenses to fall over time as technology replaces low-skilled jobs, one of the people said.
