Investors in Barclays PLC BCS need to pay close attention to the stock based on moves in the options market lately. That is because the Mar 17, 2023 $15.00 Put had some of the highest implied volatility of all equity options today.

What is Implied Volatility?

Implied volatility shows how much movement the market is expecting in the future. Options with high levels of implied volatility suggest that investors in the underlying stocks are expecting a big move in one direction or the other. It could also mean there is an event coming up soon that may cause a big rally or a huge sell-off. However, implied volatility is only one piece of the puzzle when putting together an options trading strategy.

What do the Analysts Think?

Clearly, options traders are pricing in a big move for Barclays shares, but what is the fundamental picture for the company? Currently, Barclays is a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) in the Banks - Foreign industry that ranks in the Top 5% of our Zacks Industry Rank. Over the last 60 days, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter has moved from 30 cents per share to 32 cents.

Given the way analysts feel about Barclays right now, this huge implied volatility could mean there’s a trade developing. Oftentimes, options traders look for options with high levels of implied volatility to sell premium. This is a strategy many seasoned traders use because it captures decay. At expiration, the hope for these traders is that the underlying stock does not move as much as originally expected.

FT: Barclays, Venkat and the ghost of Edward Bramson

Bank seeks to turn around investor concerns that have driven down its valuation


Last week there was a flurry of big job news at Barclays. Britain’s last remaining universal bank with a proper transatlantic presence brought in a couple of heavyweight board members and appointed a new duo to lead the investment banking division.

It would be unfair to call this deckchair-moving on the Titanic — Barclays is not in the kind of existential crisis that it and many others faced in 2008. But the scale of changes does feel piffling compared with the bank’s woeful stock market performance versus its peers.

That is true however you define Barclays’ peer group. Its valuation — on the basis of share price to book value — is lower than the UK’s other big four banks. NatWest, the former RBS group that is still 48 per cent owned by the government after its 2008 bailout, is trading on a valuation nearly double Barclays’ 48 per cent of book. And Barclays is rated way below equivalent US banks. The best of the Wall Street bunch, Morgan Stanley, is trading above 175 per cent of book.

There are at least five reasons why Barclays is out of favour. 

First, investors in Europe no longer appreciate the old universal banking model. One reason for Natwest’s resurgent popularity is that, like Lloyds, it now focuses largely on its retail and commercial operations, after shrinking the investment banking unit that all but killed it 15 years ago to virtually nothing. With the jump in interest rates boosting lending margins and next to no downside yet from rising defaults, pure-play operators like these are far more on trend than the more diversified Barclays.

Second, one of Barclays’ jewels, its giant credit card business, is seen as a potential vulnerability amid an impending UK recession. As analysts at Berenberg point out, the credit card operation has in the past accounted for 70 per cent of the bank’s loan losses, even if it has been derisked.

Third, despite record fixed-income trading boosting the investment bank last year, critics say Barclays has failed to reinvent its business model to suit the post-2008 regulatory landscape. This penalises investment banking with heavy capital charges and advantages capital-light asset and wealth management.

In a mirror image of Morgan Stanley’s evolution away from a dominant investment bank towards a valuable wealth management franchise, Barclays’ investment bank has become more weighty. A thriving asset management business, Barclays Global Investors, was sold to BlackRock. And the former Barclays Wealth operation has been undermined by a retrenchment from Asia, the Middle East and the US, as well as by the regulatory ringfence which has split UK and non-UK operations.

Fourth, the investor distaste for the universal bank model, and especially for the investment banking element of it, is heightened at Barclays by an accident-prone record. The latest gaffe involved it having sold nearly $18bn of securities without regulatory permission — for which it agreed last autumn to pay $361mn.

This has all translated into a vicious circle, whereby stable long-term active investors are thin on the shareholder register, with index funds and hedge funds dominating. Although activist Edward Bramson failed in his effort to shrink the investment bank, his ghost haunts investor sentiment.

Fifth, chief executive CS Venkatakrishnan has been laid low by a recent cancer diagnosis, with treatment set to last at least another couple of months. Although he is still working remotely from his home in New York, he is unable to tour the world and present his investment case face to face.

There is some cause for optimism. Once he is back on the road, “Venkat” as he is known is determined to step up the case that nagging investor scepticism about Barclays’ investment bank is misguided: he has spent months amassing data proving that the perceived or expected volatility in the unit’s quarterly performance is disproved by actual results. The bank is also keen to repair its fractured wealth business by asking UK regulators for the go-ahead to reintegrate the unit outside the more secure ringfenced part of the group.

Although Venkat will not shrink the investment bank, he hopes to reduce its relative importance to about half of profits from the current two-thirds tally by making retail banking more efficient and expanding its US cards and payments units as well as the wealth franchise. Even if much of this doesn’t materialise, says Berenberg, Barclays — on five times projected 2024 earnings, a 25 per cent discount to European rivals — is just extremely cheap.

Manics,

I'm bullish think we're heading towards record highs for the FTSE.

You're better at guessing at Barc share price, so l tip my hat to you.

Food for thought:
8.38 billion shares added to barclays since 2008.Total dividend
for 2021 6p for 2008 11.5p.

Profit 2021 after tax = 7.226 billion
Profit 2008 after tax = 5.287 billion

Number of shares doubled, share price halved. So does it matter that barclays are fond of issueing new shares at the same time they do a buyback?


Anyway, dates for 2022 finals
bnc Finals 01/02/2023
barc Finals 15/02/2023
nwg Finals 17/02/2023
lloy Finals 22/02/2023
mtro Finals 22/02/2023
hsba Finals 23/02/2023

Sad...could it be the reason Barc share price has been struggling lately...




The CEO of Barclays CS Venkatakrishnan has informed the banking giant's board that he has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.

The American banker, who is known as Venkat and took over from Jes Staley in November last year, assured colleagues in an open letter that his 'prognosis is excellent' and his 'condition is curable' with treatment.

Venkatakrishnan said treatment for the cancer will likely last 12 to 16 weeks, during which time he has said 'the company will run normally' with the CEO pledging to be 'actively engaged in managing it'.

He added that he may have to work from home for some periods as he will not be able to travel.

Following the latest results, Barclays' 19 analysts are now forecasting revenues of UK£25.6b in 2023. This would be a decent 8.4% improvement in sales compared to the last 12 months. Statutory earnings per share are forecast to decrease 3.2% to UK£0.31 in the same period. In the lead-up to this report, the analysts had been modelling revenues of UK£25.5b and earnings per share (EPS) of UK£0.31 in 2023. The consensus analysts don't seem to have seen anything in these results that would have changed their view on the business, given there's been no major change to their estimates. It will come as no surprise then, to learn that the consensus price target is largely unchanged at UK£2.27. It could also be instructive to look at the range of analyst estimates, to evaluate how different the outlier opinions are from the mean. Currently, the most bullish analyst values Barclays at UK£3.25 per share, while the most bearish prices it at UK£1.23. Note the wide gap in analyst price targets? This implies to us that there is a fairly broad range of possible scenarios for the underlying business. Looking at the bigger picture now, one of the ways we can make sense of these forecasts is to see how they measure up against both past performance and industry growth estimates. The analysts are definitely expecting Barclays' growth to accelerate, with the forecast 6.7% annualised growth to the end of 2023 ranking favourably alongside historical growth of 3.8% per annum over the past five years. Compare this with other companies in the same industry, which are forecast to grow their revenue 5.8% annually. Barclays is expected to grow at about the same rate as its industry, so it's not clear that we can draw any conclusions from its growth relative to competitors. The Bottom LineThe most obvious conclusion is that there's been no major change in the business' prospects in recent times, with the analysts holding their earnings forecasts steady, in line with previous estimates. Happily, there were no real changes to sales forecasts, with the business still expected to grow in line with the overall industry. The consensus price target held steady at UK£2.27, with the latest estimates not enough to have an impact on their price targets.

Market cap of Natwest and Barclays pretty much the same at £23bn a piece! Will Natwest overtake Barclays this week given it's a better managed bank?

Exactly...that has been the norm norm since 2008 hence the distortion with property prices being the only economy...and seeing share prices so fickle to a kick around every few years...property you have control unlike share prices you don' have control...all these plc companies runs by itself in colloboration with advisors, consultants, brokers, etc etc...no body really owns it...the only thing retail really own is a piece of paper that can be bought and sold in a matter of seconds/minutes...long, medium or short term speculators...

I think there will be a dip in house prices but nothing catastrophic.

Inflation will ease over next few months and rates will stabilise.
