prbshares: Manics : 😂... this weather is all over the place !! imo fwiw (which isnt much!) the signs point to a undervalued barc share price .. we just need the ftse to sort itself out and take the foot off the brake !

johnwise: Going for Broke Update: Analysis Six conclusions to be drawn as Archegos affair rattles big bank shares Sky's Ian King explains why many big name stocks have taken a pounding in recent days with two big banks joining their ranks. Late last week, Wall Street was buzzing with even more speculation and rumour than usual. The prices of a number of big name media stocks, most notably Viacom CBS and Discovery, had tanked. Something similar also appeared to be happening with some of the best-known Chinese tech stocks, including the internet search giant Baidu and Tencent Music Entertainment. The declines were spectacular. Between Tuesday and Friday last week, Baidu fell by 33.5% and Tencent Music Entertainment by 48.5%, while in New York shares of Viacom CBS - owner of MTV and Nickelodeon - and Discovery both halved in value. Big online retail groups, including Shopify and Farfetch, also saw their share prices hit. Details began to gradually emerge. A major seller was offloading big shareholdings in these companies in what appeared to be a fire-sale.
bernie37: Since the 2008 financial crisis, the big UK banks have mostly lagged behind the wider stock market. But I think things could be changing. The Barclays (LSE: BARC) share price has beaten the FTSE 100 and all of its main UK rivals so far in 2021. Is this 285-year-old business finally back on track to deliver sustainable growth? Or is this yet another false dawn? I think it’s too soon to be sure, but I do know that Barclays has outperformed decisively over the last 12 months: 1yr change (26/03/21) Barclays +70% NatWest Group +45% FTSE 100 +16% Lloyds Banking Group +12% What’s behind this rapid share price surge? I’ve been taking a look to find out more. What’s good Since taking charge of Barclays in 2015, CEO Jes Staley has resisted investors pressure to scale back the group’s investment bank. Mr Staley has stuck to his vision of pairing Barclays’ UK-US investment bank with its high street operations. The wisdom of this strategy was uncertain until last year, when Mr Staley’s bet paid off. Crashing UK markets triggered hard times in the real economy, as many businesses faced a sudden slowdown. Many of Barclays’ corporate clients needed extra cash to survive lockdown. The group’s investment bankers were happy to help by raising funds on the debt and equity markets. A busy year saw income from corporate and investment banking rise by 22% to £12.5bn. According to management, it was the best year ever. I think this strength is the main reason why the Barclays share price has outperformed its big rivals. This extra income helped to limit the damage from lower income at the group’s high street bank and credit card business. Banks such as Lloyds and NatWest don’t have the same investment banking capabilities, so suffered bigger hits to profits last year. What’s not so good I’m confident that business in Barclays’ credit card and high street businesses will return to normal over time. But I’m not so sure what to expect from its investment banking division. When a company reports record results, I think it pays to think about the situation. Is this a genuine growth scenario where I can expect further progress over future years? Or is this a situation where unusual circumstances have boosted profits? I can’t be sure how Barclays will perform over the next year or two. But I don’t expect another record-breaking performance from investment banking this year. I think what’s more likely is that we’ll see a more middling performance — similar to recent years, in fact. The Barclays share price: what I’d do The latest broker consensus forecasts suggest that Barclays’ earnings and its dividend will rise in 2021. Estimates for this year put the stock on 11 times forecast earnings, with a 2.9% dividend yield. However, although profits are expected to rise this year, forecasts suggest they will still be lower than in 2019. Earnings aren’t expected to rise above 2019 levels until 2022. In my view, Barclays and Mr Staley still have a lot to prove. But the shares look affordable to me at current levels. Over time, I expect further gains. I’d certainly be comfortable buying and holding Barclays shares today.
bernie37: The Barclays (LSE: BARC) share price has roared back to life since the 2020 stock market crash. In fact, the FTSE 100 share has now erased all of the losses it endured following the Covid-19 outbreak. It recently struck its most expensive since December 2019, above 180p per share, in fact. Investor appetite for the bank first spiked when news of successful coronavirus vaccine testing broke last autumn. The triumphant rollout of these pandemic battlers in Britain have allowed the Barclays share price to keep soaring too. Yet despite its stratospheric rise I think the Barclays share price still looks really cheap on paper. City analysts think the bank’s annual earnings will soar 85% in 2021. This leaves the FTSE 100 bank trading on a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.2. Investing theory suggests any reading below 1 indicates a UK share might be undervalued. Betting on the Barclays share price There are several reasons why the Barclays share price could continue to ascend too. These include: #1: Reassuring UK economic data. Banks are, of course, ultra-cyclical shares and so their fortunes are tied directly to broader economic conditions. It’s no surprise then that the Barclays share price rise has come at the same time as some key metrics, like PMI and unemployment data, in its core UK market have impressed. The good news could keep coming too as vaccine rollouts continue with great haste. #2: Solid trading at the investment bank. Income at Barclays’ Corporate and Investment Bank rocketed 22% in 2020, thanks to extreme market volatility. It’s quite possible that trading here will remain buoyant for some time yet. Certainly as the Covid-19 crisis worsens in some parts of the world and other issues such as rising inflation and trade tensions rattle investor nerves. 3: Strong US economic growth. Unlike its FTSE 100 peers Lloyds and NatWest, Barclays has significant international exposure which could prove a key plank for long-term earnings growth. The bank has a hefty footprint in the world’s largest economy, the US. And it looks like GDP growth here will outstrip those of other advanced economies in 2021, helped by the recent $1.9trn stimulus plan. However… That said, there’s a couple of key reasons why I think the Barclays share price could crash again. Again, the fortunes of the banks are highly geared to the performance of the broader economy. And the outlook in the UK is packed with peril. As the experts at Hargreaves Lansdown note: “Provisions for bad debt increased dramatically earlier in the year… and we’ll only know for sure if they are sufficient when government support is withdrawn at the end of the crisis.” Revenues could also struggle if the economic bounce proves fleeting and the Covid-19 situation worsens. The probability of low interest rates persisting long into the future threatens the Barclays share price too. Rock-bottom rates have smashed the difference which the FTSE 100 banks lend at, and provide to savers, over the past decade. And the Bank of England continues to publicly flirt with sending rates negative too, a scenario that would have additional ramifications on bank profits. All things considered I’d much rather buy other cheap UK shares today.
jordaggy: The Barc share price will push forward when the PRU take their foot off our neck.
prbshares: Waynex : happy for barc to consolidate around 181-184, then looking for a good push forward. My feeling is that Barcs share price will be underpinned and strengthened by the buyback .... lets she how she goes.
diku: The beneficiaries are the their remuneration can be linked to eps...but the share price move has other ideas...wider shareholders buy into the moving mechanism of the share price not the eps... Buying back stock can also be an easy way to make a business look more attractive to investors. By reducing the number of outstanding shares, a company's earnings per share (EPS) ratio is automatically increased – because its annual earnings are now divided by a lower number of outstanding shares. For example, a company that earns $10 million in a year with 100,000 outstanding shares has an EPS of $100. If it repurchases 10,000 of those shares, reducing its total outstanding shares to 90,000, its EPS increases to $111.11 without any actual increase in earnings.
prbshares: Manics : Interesting to see how barc performs today ... The ftse looks to open Circa -50 points down (but will it stay that way we ask ..?) The Buy back RNS is out and can start from today.... so whats your thoughts on the share price ?
