Great rumour. Pile on the volatility. Oh and the court cases of people who bought for the divi then sold ex record date. Will get messy.

But the banks aren't lending and are quoting interest rates of circa 12% when you enquire . Not paying a divi won't make any difference to banks lending. It's the same with 3 month mortgage extension. This is just adding to your debt as GOV aren't paying your interest, it is just being compounded by another 3 months on the term. All sounds very good until you look at the detail.

Gov is guaranteeing the loans to businesses, gov' backed, so they are obviously expecting the banks to lend more... Doji Wan Kenobi

and how is cancelling the dividend supposed to make the banks more investable ? If Investors don't buy the share price will drop. If the share price drops, the banks value is lower. If the banks value is lower they can't lend as much etc etc etc This is just UK GOV looking after itself not the companies it is asking to do it's bidding.

If the divs are cancelled then all the directors bonuses must also be cancelled and the scrip shares stopped If I was a worker I would cancel my pension now as it will never be worth anything if you are on less than 22k You will never even get back what you paid in All it will do is stop you getting any benefits Cancel your pensions now

Oh dear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Coronavirus: Taxpayers forego £600m from RBS payout The Treasury will miss out on a £600m windfall when RBS cancels its 2019 dividend, Sky News can reveal. UK taxpayers are to forfeit more than £600m from the cancellation of bank dividends as regulators instruct Britain's biggest lenders to conserve capital amid the coronavirus crisis. Sky News can reveal that Royal Bank of Scotland's move to stop a £968m full-year dividend payment for 2019, which was due to be made in the coming weeks, will leave the Treasury £600m poorer. The government's 62% stake in RBS means it would have received the sum if the payout had gone ahead. It will also forego taxes associated with the payment of the chunk of the £7.5bn that was due to be handed to UK taxpayers. Banking sources expect the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA), the banking watchdog, to announce on Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning that Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds Banking Group and RBS will no longer pay the dividends announced alongside their full-year results. Excluding HSBC, which is by far the largest dividend-payer with a $4.2bn cheque but which is less UK-focused than its peers, the move will preserve roughly £4bn of capital - which could translate into £40bn of lending into the UK economy as the COVID-19 pandemic deepens. The Financial Times reported earlier that there was a growing expectation of the dividend cancellation. https://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-taxpayers-forego-600m-from-rbs-payout-11965984

UK banks expect regulator to order dividend freeze. Banks in the UK are braced for the country’s top financial supervisor to put a stop to £7.5bn of dividend payments due over the next few weeks in a move designed to shore up capital levels during the coronavirus outbreak. The Prudential Regulation Authority, the supervisory arm of the Bank of England, is running out of time to make a decision on whether to block the payments, with Barclays due to pay a full-year dividend of 6p per share on Friday. UK lenders, including Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds Banking Group and Royal Bank of Scotland, are expecting the PRA to advise against the payments within the next few days, according to several people briefed on their plans. “We think the regulator will probably announce something soon,” said one. Until last week, the PRA had been relatively unfazed by dividend payments going ahead as planned, according to one person briefed on discussions between the banks and the regulator. But the supervisor changed its stance on Friday, when the European Central Bank ordered eurozone banks to freeze dividend payments and share buybacks, they added https://giftarticle.ft.com/giftarticle/actions/redeem/f4d8c8c2-080d-4690-bc0e-7c197b44a5ec Doji Wan Kenobi

How much did the desperate shorts lose today? They are doomed to failure. Please do your own research as always.
