prbshares: Manics : Lets hope so ... seems a rather unfair share price adjustment considering the economy only started to open up more in April. I have taken the RTG's off for now to look at this share price behavior from a pos/neg balanced view. Long I am in barc but my view doesn't change ... the share price fundamentally trades cheap and the bank makes profits at a time where the economy is just opening up. We know that barc is setting up new IB divisions across the globe right now and has also indicated a progressive divi in the making... I guess we have to see how the mm's play this out. Was this the end of week/month profit take into the long weekend, clearing stops on the way....? .... if so then buying anywhere at these levels could be a great trade opportunity. We shall see .... GLA
prbshares: Well yesterday was certainly not barcs sp's finest hour ! I am a 'Long' holder of barc but in order to understand/reason more on this abrupt drop post results I have taken the 'rose tinted glasses' off and read through the details : hxxps:// imo fwiw (which is very little I know) it seems that this 7% pull back could be linked to a number of factors that when combined took the stock down, when really imo we should have seen a rise. Those factors were the headline 6-8% drop in grp income along with a 10% increase in costs combined with end of month profit taking going into the long weekend ...BUT... reading beyond this the bank is : highly profitable, well diversified, has 161% liquidity pool, "going forward Barclays intends to pay a progressive ordinary dividend" and the bank sits at TNAV of 267p So my question's are : 1)Has the market reaction lead to an oversold share price ? 2)Do the results/market point to more selling to come ? 3)Could this be a pull back in the share price before it climbs to new highs offering a buying opportunity ? Best to read the report and then factor in the crazy world of the stock market before answering, remembering that only a week or so ago barc dipped to 168p because of a fat fingered trade of circa 40k shares returning to 190p shortly after .... go figure ????? I am staying 'long' and believe the UK recovery is happening and will only bring more fruitful results for the banks. My target share price starts with a 2XX GLA
nick100: * Shares of Barclays slump 5.5% at about 178.3 pence – biggest drag in the FTSE 100 index * Co's profits more than doubled in Q1, as group's investment bank capitalised on a share trading mania... * "Overall a solid set of numbers, but after the blow-out numbers of some UK and investment banking peers it's possible the market may have expected even more," Citi says * BARC also says poor performance in FICC was due to a slump in client demand compared with the frenzied start of 2020 * BARC took an impairment charge of just 55 mln pounds for further bad loans, much less than analysts had forecast * Barclays' approach, however, contrasts with bullish moves by rivals such as HSBC and Lloyds to release big chunks of provisions set aside for potential soured loans * Shares of the lender down 18% in 2020, but have risen 22% already so far this year
bernie37: Barclays analysts on Friday highlighted that earnings per share (EPS) growth has been particularly high thus far, at 107% year-on-year in Europe and 63% in the U.S. Barclays Head of European Equity Strategy Emmanuel Cau suggested that high earnings expectations had largely been priced into markets following their impressive run over the past year. LONDON — Corporate earnings season is off to a flying start, but the positive surprises have so far failed to generate upward momentum for global stock markets. As of Friday morning, 13% of companies in Europe and 20% in the U.S. had reported first-quarter earnings, with the majority exceeding consensus expectations. Barclays analysts on Friday highlighted that earnings per share (EPS) growth has been particularly high thus far, at 107% year-on-year in Europe and 63% in the U.S. EPS beats are above average for a reporting season at 74% in Europe and 83% in the U.S., Barclays highlighted, while sales growth has surprised positively versus consensus by 1% in Europe and 4% in the U.S. Financials have led the beats, with all European financials so far delivering positive earnings per share surprises. However, both European and U.S. markets are down slightly for the week, and Barclays Head of European Equity Strategy Emmanuel Cau suggested that high earnings expectations had largely been priced into markets following their impressive run and re-rating over the past year. Our view that the reporting season may turn out to be a case of 'travel and arrive' seems to be playing out so far," Cau said in the note. "The median stock price reaction to results is indeed negative despite the strong beats to estimates, mainly in the U.S., while it is broadly flat in Europe." Cau noted that a similar pattern had emerged in the previous two earnings seasons, with stock markets rallying in the run-up before stalling, and beginning to rally again after a period of digestion. Marcus Morris-Eyton, portfolio manager at Allianz Global Investors, told CNBC Thursday that earnings season was expected to be strong due to "very healthy macro tailwinds," and that these will likely continue for the next several quarters, particularly in Europe. "But the challenge for us as investors is expectations are very high, so these companies need to either meet or exceed expectations," Morris-Eyton told CNBC's "Squawk Box Europe." You've already seen a few examples of where companies have reported in-line numbers but it wasn't good enough for the market." Correction concerns' The robust earnings delivery will be important for equity markets to continue their general grind higher, but overbought technicals, broadly bullish positioning and the seasonal "sell in May" mindset could place stocks in the "danger zone" for a pullback if a negative catalyst emerges, Cau suggested. "The most obvious would be a vaccine resistant (coronavirus) variant appearing, but geopolitical flares or a hawkish policy surprise could hurt sentiment too," he said. "Also, we warned recently about regulatory/taxation risk, which has been largely ignored by markets." The latter came to the fore on Thursday, as markets were spooked by reports that U.S. President Joe Biden's administration is considering hikes to capital gains tax as part of its new economic package. "Many indicators have been stretched for some time now and it would have been premature to de-risk given the improving fundamentals, but there seems to be less margin for error now if something were to go wrong," Cau said.

bernie37: While "the trend is your friend" when it comes to short-term investing or trading, timing entries into the trend is a key determinant of success. And increasing the odds of success by making sure the sustainability of a trend isn't easy. Often, the direction of a stock's price movement reverses quickly after taking a position in it, making investors incur a short-term capital loss. So, it's important to ensure that there are enough factors -- such as sound fundamentals, positive earnings estimate revisions, etc. -- that could keep the momentum in the stock going. Our "Recent Price Strength" screen, which is created on a unique short-term trading strategy, could be pretty useful in this regard. This predefined screen makes it really easy to shortlist the stocks that have enough fundamental strength to maintain their recent uptrend. Also, the screen passes only the stocks that are trading in the upper portion of their 52-week high-low range, which is usually an indicator of bullishness. Barclays (BCS) is one of the several suitable candidates that passed through the screen. Here are the key reasons why it could be a profitable bet for "trend" investors. A solid price increase over a period of 12 weeks reflects investors' continued willingness to pay more for the potential upside in a stock. BCS is quite a good fit in this regard, gaining 29.9% over this period. However, it's not enough to look at the price change for around three months, as it doesn't reflect any trend reversal that might have happened in a shorter time frame. It's important for a potential winner to maintain the price trend. A price increase of 1.5% over the past four weeks ensures that the trend is still in place for the stock of this financial holding company. Moreover, BCS is currently trading at 97.4% of its 52-week High-Low Range, hinting that it can be on the verge of a breakout. Looking at the fundamentals, the stock currently carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), which means it is in the top 20% of more than the 4,000 stocks that we rank based on trends in earnings estimate revisions and EPS surprises -- the key factors that impact a stock's near-term price movements. The Zacks Rank stock-rating system, which uses four factors related to earnings estimates to classify stocks into five groups, ranging from Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) to Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell), has an impressive externally-audited track record, with Zacks Rank #1 stocks generating an average annual return of +25% since 1988. You can see the complete list of today's Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) stocks here >>>> Another factor that confirms the company's fundamental strength is its Average Broker Recommendation of #1 (Strong Buy). This indicates that the brokerage community is highly optimistic about the stock's near-term price performance. So, the price trend in BCS may not reverse anytime soon. In addition to BCS, there are several other stocks that currently pass through our "Recent Price Strength" screen. You may consider investing in them and start looking for the newest stocks that fit these criteria. This is not the only screen that could help you find your next winning stock pick. Based on your personal investing style, you may choose from over 45 Zacks Premium Screens that are strategically created to beat the market. However, keep in mind that the key to a successful stock-picking strategy is to ensure that it produced profitable results in the past. You could easily do that with the help of the Zacks Research Wizard. In addition to allowing you to backtest the effectiveness of your strategy, the program comes loaded with some of our most successful stock-picking strategies.
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 !

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.
