Like you bernie I am optimistic here . Like to see this heading towards the 170p mark. Out of the FT 100, Barclays have one of the best ratings out of any of these companies, they can't be all wrong

Fingers crossed Our position today Barclays is now through the period of necessary restructuring and the significant associated costs. Our diversified business is stable and well positioned for current and future market conditions, and we have a seasoned management team delivering improving performance and returns. With the costs of restructuring behind us, we are beginning to generate improved and sustainable returns and distribute excess capital to shareholders. The quality of our earnings is the result of a deliberate choice to maintain diversity in our revenue streams, based on an understanding of structural changes in our sector, and the need to weather cyclical economic forces. Today, we are on track to reach our RoTE, Capital and Cost targets for 2019 and beyond. Excluding litigation and conduct, in 2018 our Group RoTE was 8.5% and our earnings per share (EPS) have grown from 3.8p in 2014 to 21.9p in 2018. Our 2018 at 13.2% our CET1 ratio was at our target of around 13%. Costs were within our guidance range of £13.6-13.9bn. Through our creation of Barclays Execution Services (BX) with its lower operating costs, we are able to increase our investment in key areas including technology, security and controls, while simultaneously reducing our costs and our cost to income ratio. As our overriding priority for 2019 and 2020 is the attainment of our returns targets, we are also able to flex our investment to a degree to support our RoTE targets if the environment requires us to do so. Returning capital to shareholders continues to be a priority for us and we will pay a dividend for 2018 of 6.5p, which is more than double the amount paid in 2016 and 2017. It is our firm intent to return a greater proportion of our earnings to shareholders over time, and we believe that the effective application of our strategy is critical to achieving this.

In the old days to become a director you had to work hard, these days you get a loan from Bank of America and buy your way in, guess it's all down to your credit score.

bernie37, Unfortunately the number of shares in issue has more than doubled. Barclays continue to dilute existing share holders to this day due to how they issue the dividend (scrip). Barclays need to stop diluting and buying back/cancelling the shares and reverse the dilution. It's an uphill battle otherwise.

As mentioned earlier today it really would seem that Barc is being held back for some reason, it normally follows the footsie but not today

What a dog Barc is, needs putting out of its misery. Brexit has destroyed UK bank shares (Hsbc makes all its money HK and SE Asia) like the rest of the UK economy really.

Here’s a number that shocked me. Barclays’ share price now trades lower than it did exactly a decade ago. Quite a lot lower, too. On 6 June 2009 the share price topped 263p. At time of writing, 10 years ago to the day, it trades almost 40% lower at 152p. The stock has endured its share of ups and downs in that time, but the overall trajectory has been down. Decade of doom Everyone knows the 2007 financial crisis destroyed banking stocks, even if Barclays avoided a bailout, but what astonishes me is that the decade since has been so damaging. It is down another 22% in the past year alone. Investors (including me) who thought it was ripe for a recovery as it shrugged off past misdemeanours and rebuilt its balance sheet got it wrong. Which is weird because there are so many things about Barclays that look right. The swingeing mis-selling and regulatory penalties are retreating, and there will be another step in the right direction when the claims deadline for the PPI mis-selling finally hits on 29 August. Profits up Its Q1 results showed the bank turned a pre-tax profit loss of £236m one year ago into a £1.48bn gain, although this was largely down to fewer bad debts and conduct charges, rather than improved underlying trading. Its full-year net profit in 2018 was £1.4bn, turning round a 2017 loss of £1.92bn (the proviso here is that 2017 saw a one-off £901m write down due to US tax reforms). The big banks have notoriously complicated accounts making them hard to gauge, but the upwards direction of travel seemed clear. Cheap and yielding Barclays has a 2018 core capital ratio of 13.1%, unchanged from the year before. Its valuation looks compelling, as it trades at just seven times forecast earnings, roughly half the 15 times generally seen as offering fair value. Its price-to-book value is just 0.4. Dirt cheap, in the jargon. Plus you now have the prospect of a healthy dividend income stream too. Barclays currently yields just 3% but this is forecast to hit 4.8% this year and 5.5% in 2020. Even then it will be generously covered 2.9 times by profits, City analysts reckon. Yet still it falls! The B-word Naturally, there are reasons for its troubles. One of them is Brexit. Barclays recently set aside a £150m Brexit provision, yet the overall cost must be far greater as the UK economy slows. This is a problem as the bank now has a far greater domestic focus, while corporate and investment bank Barclays International continues to disappoint. The penalties still come, as Barclays is one of five banks fined a total €1bn by the European Commission for questionable foreign exchange trades between 2007 and 2013. Then there is the wider worry of a global economic recession. That would lead to a surge in bad debts, and possibly more interest rate cuts, making it even harder to repair net interest margins. I would still buy Barclays stock at today’s dirt cheap price, but with one proviso. Aim to hold it for at least 10 years and keep reinvesting those dividends until it finally comes good. It must climb one day, mustn’t it?
