bernie37: During September the Barclays share price rose more than 9%, outperforming both the FTSE 100 and the financial services sector. Barclays opened the month at 137.54p and ended September at 150.40p, a rise of 9.35%. Barclays is one of five FTSE 100 banks, along with HSBC, Lloyds, The Royal Bank of Scotland and Standard Chartered. All five saw market share gains in September. HSBC was up 6.5%, Lloyds up 8.5%, RBS up 12%, and Standard Chartered rose 8%. This made up for the falls they each experienced in August. Temporary progress in US-China trade talks drove the banking sector up on 13 September, with Barclays reaching a high point of 157.3p. Share prices in the banking sector are closely linked to politics, particularly when it comes to topics of trade. That’s why Brexit is forever casting its shadow on the banking stocks and if a no-deal Brexit goes through, then this could again cause the Barclays share price to fall further. Another reason the Barclays share price increased in September was the confidence shielding its dividend, which was previously thought to be at threat of a cut. The realisation that this was safe (for now) helped boost the share price. PPI shadow In 2018 Barclays settled claims that it mis-sold sub-prime loans prior to the financial crisis. This £1.4bn settlement was less than expected and so preempted a plan to buy back shares, which would have been the first time the bank had done this in over 20 years. This £1bn share buyback plan is in place for next year, but there are now worries this may be partially scuppered by the pain of payment protection insurance (PPI). The ongoing PPI refund debacle is still not over and Barclays has said it now expects its PPI compensation bill to be significantly greater than previously expected or accounted for. This resulted in concerns that Barclays will have to cut its share buyback plan in half to make provisions for the PPI refunds it owes. At the end of June, the 329-year-old bank predicted PPI provision of £360m. This has now been raised to between £1.2bn and £1.6bn. The overall cost to the banking industry of PPI refunds now exceeds £50bn. Targets on track After the 2008 financial crisis, a reformed set of international standards was created to review and monitor the capital adequacy of banks. Part of that is Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1), which is a precautionary way to protect the economy from another financial crisis. Barclays management says it is on target to meet its CET1 ratio goal of 13% for this year. It has a trailing price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 8 times, which in normal circumstances would seem like a bargain, but this is not new for Barclays and even a low P/E hasn’t stopped the stock from falling in the past. There are worries the dividend yield could be impacted if a recession rears its ugly head, or political tensions escalate. As far as banks go, Barclays has been performing better than Lloyds, but I see the sector as extremely vulnerable right now and therefore consider it risky for new investors.

bernie37: Barclays shares must do this to begin a proper recovery by Alistair Strang from Trends and Targets | 27th June 2019 08:53 Still nursing wounds a decade after the Financial Crisis, here's what our chartist thinks of Barclays. Barclays PLC (LSE:BARC) Sometimes we rabbit on about "horizontal trends" and nowhere is the feature quite as demonstrated as Barclays (LSE:BARC) share price since 2011. We've shown it with a purple line on the chart, though perhaps it may be Magenta. Spoiling the story, the colour conflict had nothing to do with The Battle of Magenta, especially as the dye was discovered in 1859 and named in honour of the event. It is interesting to note the leader of French forces was actually of Irish descent, his family driven out of Ireland due to English property confiscations, opting to settle in France. Patrice de MacMahon (Paddy to his mates) eventually became President of France! Aside from a whimsical wander through history, along with an ongoing in-house debate regarding Purple or Magenta, we should really discuss what's happening (or rather not happening) with Barclays share price. Last time we reviewed it, we waxed lyrical about the dangers of 148.823p, if the share had the temerity to close below this level. Such a disaster has happened three times in the last week, salt being rubbed on the wound by the price also trading below 147p (apparently the final drop trigger) for a few hours. Yet, the price has not plunged into the abyss of doom, instead appearing to find some sort of excuse for a bounce. Alas, this is where the purple (or magenta) line comes into play, a horizontal trend dating back eight years and one we'd ignored, due to Barclays share price habit of dipping below this 147p line, only to recovery sharply thereafter. Only in 2016 - following the Brexit vote (circled) - did the price conclusively dip below this line but once again, sharply recovered. It's important to accept therefore this trend can be broken. The situation now, from a big picture perspective, is of weakness below 146p now entering a cycle down to an initial 134p. Secondary, when broken, is a bottom, hopefully, of 114p. To a degree, it feels we are clutching at straws, perplexed Barclays has avoided the opportunity to drive off a cliff. The answer to our confusion doubtless lies with politics and political uncertainty as we await white smoke coming from 10 Downing St chimney to tell us which bus driver has been anointed to actually steer the nation. Currently, Barclays share price requires above 162p to suggest it has actually bottomed, in doing so entering a region where a cycle to 175p should commence. If bettered, a longer term 192p is now possible. If we adhere to our "normal" rules, we must accept 114p looks like the eventual drop target.

bernie37: APR 2019 Barclays vs Lloyds Barclays and Lloyds are the key banks in the UK sector and despite some similarities there is also glaring differences. I often get asked by clients, which is the better of the two? One is the “boring” but steady and the other is “exciting̶1;,but can also be unstable. In this report I have looked at the pair and drawn up some key comparisons. Both have caused investors huge frustrations over recent years but both for very different reasons. Barclays Plc (BARC) Yield 4.32% Identity Crisis There’s no doubting that Barclays has some great businesses when you scratch the surface. It is of course one of the UK’s big four banks with over 23 million customers. It’s also the UK’s leading issuer of credit cards, the leading stockbroker, a leading wealth manager and has a leading investment bank. It is fair to say that Barclays is not the global bank it once was. With the exception of the US, it has largely retreated from foreign markets. Only a few years ago it had major operations in Europe and Africa in particular, but these have been sold off. What we have left is a UK-US focused bank. Expansion is no longer the name of the game. Today it’s all about profits and dividends. Prized Asset One thing that sets Barclays apart from the UK’s other big four banks is its large and sometimes successful investment bank. Investment banking is seen as the riskier but more lucrative cousin of retail banking. Instead of mortgages and current accounts, it involves things like advice on takeovers, raising debt and equity for large corporations and trading of bonds and shares. Barclays is the only British bank to make serious headway in investment banking, boosted by its opportunistic buy of Lehman Brothers core business during the financial crisis. This gave Barclays a leg up to compete with Wall Street’s titans such as Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. Becoming a major player has not come easy or cheap, so it’s understandable why Barclays is reluctant to part with one of its best assets, even if it is unfashionable. While investment banking adds extra volatility to earnings it can also generate mega-money in good times – on a scale that retail banking can never do. While investment banking adds extra volatility to earnings it can also generate mega-money in good times, on a scale that retail banking can never do. And those worried about another financial crisis should note that Barclays has been the first of the major British banks to successfully ring-fence its UK retail operations. The Revolving Door Shareholders like stable leadership and a clear strategy, which is fair enough, but in the last decade, Barclays has provided neither. Barclays vs Lloyds 01 www.atlanticmarkets.co.uk Since 2011, Barclays has had four different CEOs. The principal reason for the high turnover of CEOs has been a continuous series of scandals. As we know, whenever there is a big scandal, the media and politicians call for someone’s head, and in Barclay’s case, that’s been the CEO. Even the current CEO, Jes Staley, has been lucky to survive several scandals. As you’d expect, every CEO has had his own vision for Barclays and has set about making it happen, only to be replaced before he gets the job done. The new guy has then come in and taken the bank in a different direction. While there are no guarantees the present CEO will be around for the long-term, the hope is that the Board of Directors understands that the share price has been hampered by the lack of continuity, so will endeavour to create more stable leadership. Even if it has yet to be rewarded, the new strategy for Barclays seems a lot less complicated. A focus on transatlantic operations will be much easier to understand and manage. We’ve noted that Barclays is now taking a leaf out of Lloyd’s book and continuously using the words simple and straightforward. I don’t think Barclays will ever be a simple as Lloyds, but nor should it try to be. It’s got a better spread of assets and products. You can’t be simple and diversified at the same time. Lloyds Bank (LLOY) Yield 6.19% Lloyds is back to doing what it does best – current accounts, mortgages, personal and business loans, life insurance...sound dull? Thank goodness. Fund managers in the City used to mockingly call Lloyds “the world’s most boring bank”, who knew that would become a compliment. It’s taken many years for Lloyds to recover from the financial crisis, not only financially, but also on a reputational level. As we know, Lloyds made a near fatal error when it bought HBOS in the thick of the fog back in 2008. In the four years that followed, the HBOS side of the business would incur a mammoth £45 billion of loan impairments in addition to £10 billion from the Lloyds side. It was enough to bring any financial institution to its knees and Lloyds was forced into a £20 billion government bailout. The UKs First ‘SuperbankR17; Bailout aside, the purchase of HBOS propelled Lloyds to become the UK’s first ‘super bank’. Bear in mind, if the acquisition had taken place in ordinary times, such a major move would have faced tremendous opposition and likely to have been blocked altogether by competition regulators. Together, the two banks had relationships with four out of ten consumers. The timing of the deal was terrible, but the cost savings have been tremendous. The initial aim was to achieve a target of £1 billion of annual cost savings, but it wasn’t long before this was revised up to £1.5 billion, then to over £2 billion. Road to Recovery Lloyds continues to make progress with a strong start to the Group’s latest strategic plan and the planned integration of Zurich and MBNA and launch of Lloyds Bank Corporate Markets all Barclays vs Lloyds 02 www.atlanticmarkets.co.uk going to plan. The biggest appeal for the potential share buyer is the recent increase to the interim ordinary dividend. This and the overall Improved guidance offer investors some respite and positivity to look forward to. One thing that Lloyds has long been known for is its ability to keep a tight rein on costs, and that’s where a lot of the profit improvement is coming from. Lloyds has the lowest cost base of the big four banks. It also has a very strong capital position, more than double the minimum allowable level. What’s more, Lloyds has no net reliance on wholesale funding – meaning it’s self-funded. PPI Pay-outs The total PPI provisions for Lloyds now stands at a staggering £19.4bn since 2011. The compensation payments have been so vast that the Financial Times mockingly referred to Lloyds as “a cash dispenser to the people”. On the bright side, it’s a big achievement that Lloyds’ has been able to pay out billions in compensation and not only survive, but resume making good profits. Given the strength of the underlying business, it shouldn’t be too long before Lloyds switches over to being a cash dispenser to its shareholders. How They Compare Lloyds is a better run business with a far superior cost to income ratio. It is also safer with a substantially higher capital ratio. It offers investors an attractive and growing dividend yield at a modest forecast PE ratio. While its business has a narrow focus, it is the UK’s most straightforward bank. In short, it’s an income play with good upside potential. The net asset value per share is not so appealing to investors compared to Barclays. Lloyds NAV (exc intangibles) is 55.51p compared to Barclays far more appealing 318.58p. Barclays has a lot of catching up to do. Its costs are way too high, and its capital could do with a boost. Both of these points are being addressed. The recent dividend increases are now appealing to the income investor, but this has weighed on the company’s overall dividend cover. Barclays dividend cover is 1.45 compared to a healthier cover for Lloyds at 1.71. The biggest attraction of Barclays is its deep discount to net assets. The dividend cover does also offer investors the comfort. There’s a lot of potential upside that could be unlocked if the management team can run the business in a cohesive and consistent manner. For investors prepared to take a longer view, Barclays is a bargain. Barclays vs Lloyds 03

Edward Bramson is trying to win a place on Barclays' board at its annual shareholder meeting on May 2 after building a 5.5 per cent stake in the bank. He raised the funds for the investment from major institutions such as Aviva, Fidelity and Invesco. But it has now emerged that Bramson will earn a hefty fee for his work managing Sherborne Investors Guernsey C, the name of the vehicle he set up to buy his Barclays stake.

In a letter to shareholders, Sherborne said: 'We believe the market's evaluation of Barclays' shares reflects the growing risks that the corporate and investment bank poses to Barclays' overall financial position – and that the market does not share the board's optimism that the hidden merits of its strategy will eventually become apparent.'

Barclays last week admitted that it was 'dissatisfied' with its recent share price performance +1 Barclays last week admitted that it was 'dissatisfied' with its recent share price performance Barclays last week slammed Bramson's letter. The bank admitted that it was 'dissatisfied' with its recent share price performance. But it said Bramson's presence on the board would be destabilising. It added: 'Mr Bramson is not someone the board believes will help either as a board member or as a colleague. 'We believe his letter demonstrates a preconceived viewpoint and a poor understanding of Barclays and its corporate and investment bank. 'Mr Bramson misunderstands the drivers of that business and his analysis is based on a flawed understanding of complex banking organisations and reaches conclusions that are inconsistent with the data.' Bramson is expected to continue his campaign even if he does not win shareholder support in next month's vote. The activist investor normally holds an investment for a period of 28 months, so he could earn as much as £12million in fees even if he does not gain a seat on the Barclays' board. Barclays and Sherborne declined to comment.

bernie37: Have Insiders Been Buying Barclays PLC (LON:BARC) Shares? It is not uncommon to see companies perform well in the years after insiders buy shares. Unfortunately, there are also plenty of examples of share prices declining precipitously after insiders have sold shares. So before you buy or sell Barclays PLC (LON:BARC), you may well want to know whether insiders have been buying or selling. What Is Insider Selling? It is perfectly legal for company insiders, including board members, to buy and sell stock in a company. However, such insiders must disclose their trading activities, and not trade on inside information. Insider transactions are not the most important thing when it comes to long-term investing. But logic dictates you should pay some attention to whether insiders are buying or selling shares. As Peter Lynch said, 'insiders might sell their shares for any number of reasons, but they buy them for only one: they think the price will rise.' See our latest analysis for Barclays Barclays Insider Transactions Over The Last Year Ashok Vaswani made the biggest insider sale in the last 12 months. That single transaction was for UK£732k worth of shares at a price of UK£2.06 each. While the sale doesn't make us feel confident, we do note it was conducted at a price well above the current share price, which is UK£1.63. So it is hard to draw any strong conclusion from it. Happily, we note that in the last year insiders paid UK£2.8m for 1.51m shares. On the other hand they divested 435.39k shares, for UK£878k. In the last twelve months there was more buying than selling by Barclays insiders. Their average price was about UK£1.87. These transactions suggest that insiders have considered the current price of UK£1.63 attractive. The chart below shows insider transactions (by individuals) over the last year. If you want to know exactly who sold, for how much, and when, simply click on the graph below! Barclays is not the only stock that insiders are buying. For those who like to find winning investments this free list of growing companies with recent insider purchasing, could be just the ticket. Barclays Insiders Bought Stock Recently Over the last three months, we've seen significantly more insider buying, than insider selling, at Barclays. In total, 13 insiders bought UK£208k worth of shares in that time. On the other hand, Group General Counsel Robert Hoyt netted UK£82k by selling. We think insiders may be optimistic about the future, since insiders have been net buyers of shares. Insider Ownership Looking at the total insider shareholdings in a company can help to inform your view of whether they are well aligned with common shareholders. Usually, the higher the insider ownership, the more likely it is that insiders will be incentivised to build the company for the long term. It appears that Barclays insiders own 0.07% of the company, worth about UK£20m. While this is a strong but not outstanding level of insider ownership, it's enough to indicate some alignment between management and smaller shareholders. So What Does This Data Suggest About Barclays Insiders? The recent insider purchases are heartening. We also take confidence from the longer term picture of insider transactions. When combined with notable insider ownership, these factors suggest Barclays insiders are well aligned, and that they may think the share price is too low. Of course, the future is what matters most. So if you are interested in Barclays, you should check out this free report on analyst forecasts for the company. But note: Barclays may not be the best stock to buy. So take a peek at this free list of interesting companies with high ROE and low debt. We aim to bring you long-term focused research analysis driven by fundamental data.

bernie37: Page 1 Sherborne Investors / Barclays PLC Update Dear ‐‐‐;‐‐ Since we saw you we have increased our position slightly and Sherborne Investors now has an interest of approximately 5.51% in Barclays, spread across the funds that we manage, including, of course, SIGC. Recently, we obtained the official share register from the company and, based on analysis of this detailed data, it appears that we now hold the second largest interest in Barclays. The composition of our holdings has also changed somewhat as we have increased the portion held in derivatives as a way to hedge against declines in Barclays’ share price while retaining a majority of the potential increases. In round numbers we hold, at present, approximately 440 million shares outright, which we purchased for total consideration of slightly less than £900 million in cash, as well as the equivalent of approximately 500 million additional shares through derivatives with maturities stretching out to 2021. As discussed with you, our funds also retain a substantial amount of cash to purchase, at our discretion, our share of any rights offering that Barclays may be required to make or to increase our holdings if this risk begins to abate. Our recent meeting with the Chairman, Senior Independent Director, and the executive directors of Barclays was pleasant and polite, illustrating that it is possible for people to differ in a spirit of goodwill. In the course of extensive correspondence and several meetings with Barclays we have raised many of the points we have discussed with you, including: 1) Valuation: Market multiples of book value for investment banks, like Barclays’ Corporate and Investment Bank (“CIB”) tend to be lower, globally, than for consumer orientated banks. This raises the threshold return that shareholders require from capital invested in investment banking businesses to a level that the CIB, in its current form, is unlikely to meet or be able to maintain so that it will continue to be a long‐term depressant on Barclays’ valuation. 2) Capital Allocation: The diversion of resources from Barclays’ consumer businesses that, in the last 12 months, earned an 18% return to fund an investment banking business that earned at most 7% is, inevitably, destructive of shareholder value and could only be justified by the prospect of a sustainable future level of return that the current CIB business cannot realistically achieve. 3) Strategic Weaknesses: The CIB has legacy strategic weaknesses in customer and product mix that fundamentally limit the yield on assets it can achieve, resulting in uncompetitive returns on capital. The current strategy of adding more and more leverage to generate revenue from low‐ yielding assets does not address these underlying issues. 4) Capital Structure: Barclays PLC, the entity that issues shares to the public, is no longer a “bank,” but has become a financial holding company that owns interests in ring‐fenced subsidiary banks. As a result its risk and liquidity profile is profoundly different than it was in the past and ought to be managed more prudently. Four years ago Barclays PLC had relatively immaterial borrowings, but it has now borrowed £47 billion to fund regulatory capital requirements of the CIB. These borrowings are a prior claim on the assets and cash flow of the holding company which, self‐evidently, increases the risk to shareholders of dividend volatility or material capital losses. As a result, Moody’s has lowered Barclays PLC’s credit rating to Baa3, which is only one step above “junk” and is the lowest of any UK or US banking peer. 5) Shareholder Base: Many institutions that would typically have significant shareholdings in Barclays do not, because it has lower equity capital and higher leverage ratios than any UK peer but, despite this added risk, still is expected to generate the lowest consensus returns. The CIB has been described to us as a “black box with too much leverage” and this deters many long‐ term investors from acquiring shares even at an exceptionally large discount to tangible book value. In response to certain of these points, Barclays has told us that the improvement in its most recent reported 9 month group returns demonstrates that its strategy is working. However, it is widely recognised that more than 100% of the reported improvement in Core profit in this period resulted from approximately £900 million of net non‐recurring items of income, without which Core attributable profit would actually have declined from the prior year. Less well reported is the fact we pointed out to you that, although Q3 CIB revenues declined from the prior year and pre‐tax profits fell by approximately £70 million, what appears to have been a fortunately timed income tax benefit transformed this decline into a reported increase in CIB’s attributable profit. As we also discussed with you, it appears that the CIB’s Markets segment revenue increase and market share gain in Q3, which the company has highlighted, resulted from deploying substantially greater assets to “buy” revenue at prices that competitors did not feel compelled to match, rather than from any change in Barclays’ long‐term strategic competitiveness. With respect to the capital structure and financial position of the holding company, Barclays told us that they have heard similar concerns from other shareholders, but that the board disagrees and considers the parent company credit rating to be strong, pointing, inter alia, to the various stress tests that Barclays has passed. However, this overlooks the fact that it is quite possible to pass a stress test, but still devastate shareholders by virtue of the structure and magnitude of the holding company borrowings that Barclays continues to incur. It seems clear to us that, in order for the board to protect the long‐term interests of Barclays PLC’s shareholders, it will be required to adopt more conservative capital, leverage, and liquidity levels than strictly required by the regulators. The most expedient way of meeting this objective is through a judicious reduction in the CIB’s assets, which should, we believe, be accomplished before market conditions, now relatively benign, deteriorate. The capital that is released should be retained to make Barclays’ capital strength undoubted and to protect shareholders over a full cycle. Barclays has attractive consumer businesses that unquestionably merit additional attention and resources. The same is true of segments of the CIB. However, we believe that the CIB must become a realistically viable business that can contribute positive shareholder value to Barclays, but without the credit support and subsidies from other parts of the company on which it currently depends. Importantly, the resulting business should no longer threaten the overall stability of the group. In an interesting exchange about holding company leverage, Barclays argued that the more conservative financial policy we have suggested would lower its returns from levels that are already uncompetitive and that shareholders, therefore, have no choice other than to continue to accept the added level of risk. This captures, rather succinctly, the dilemma that is presented by the strategic weaknesses noted above. In our view, the better course would be to re‐evaluate the strategy of the CIB and balance the business so that excessive leverage is no longer the default option. We have listened to and considered all of the problems, potentially prohibitive costs, product interdependency, et cetera, that make it too hard for Barclays to make any changes. As we discussed with you, there are common sense approaches to dealing with all of these business issues to produce a positive outcome for all stakeholders, and we would be happy to work with the board to develop them. In this regard, we made a written proposal to the board in September to appoint me as a non‐executive director, on the basis that it would add relevant experience and broaden the board’s range of perspectives. We felt that this would allow us to participate with the other Barclays directors, in a low‐ key way, to address the concerns that we have raised, as well as any others that might present themselves in the future. After our meeting, we were told that the directors would look forward to continued engagement with us but that board representation would not be “needed”. At the same time, Barclays proposed a meeting following the announcement of their annual results, and we have confirmed an appointment with the CEO at our offices in New York on the 12th of March. We have undertaken a long process of consistent engagement, deliberately allowing ample time and opportunity for Barclays to respond to our concerns and to demonstrate that the strategy that it has pursued since 2015 will produce appropriate returns at a reasonable risk. After considering the situation carefully we do not have confidence that continued engagement with the company, strictly as an outsider, will produce any more measurable results in the future than it has to date. It seems increasingly likely that, for any progress to be made on our concerns, we will be required to seek a shareholder vote to make changes in the composition of the board. Were we to do so, the most pragmatic approach, in view of the calendar, appears to be for us to present resolutions to be voted on at the Annual General Meeting, but if circumstances were to change we could requisition a separate General Meeting instead. We continue to believe that it is possible to increase Barclays’ shareholder value in line with our customary return objective, and Stephen and I will be coming to see you in the New Year to update you. In the meantime, both of us wish you the very best for the season and the New Year. Kind regards, Ed
