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 Jan 20, 2023 $2.00 Call 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 #3 (Hold) in the Banks - Foreign industry that ranks in the Top 22% of our Zacks Industry Rank. Over the last 30 days, no analysts have increased their earnings estimates for the current quarter, while one analyst has revised the estimate downward. The net effect has taken our Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter from 33 cents per share to 30 cents in that period.

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.

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.

FTSE edges up despite grim inflation data
Wed 16 Nov 2022

(Sharecast News) - London stocks edged up in early trade on Wednesday despite rising geopolitical tensions and a grim UK inflation report.
At 0835 GMT, the FTSE 100 was 0.3% firmer at 7,388.76, while sterling was up 0.1% against the dollar at 1.1877.

Geopolitical tensions were in focus following reports that a Russian-made missile had killed two people in NATO member Poland. Russia has denied responsibility for the missile strikes, while US president Joe Biden said it was "unlikely" the missile was fired from Russia.

On home shores, data released earlier by the Office for National Statistics showed that consumer price inflation hit a 41-year high of 11.1% in the year to October as energy bills and food prices surged. This was up from 10.1% in September and versus expectations of 10.7%.

Grant Fitzner, chief economist at the ONS, noted that over the past year, gas prices have climbed nearly 130% while electricity has risen by around 66%.

"Increases across a range of food items also pushed up inflation," he said. "These were partially offset by motor fuels, where average petrol prices fell on the month, while the price for diesel rose taking the disparity in price between the two fuels to the highest on record.

"There was further evidence that costs facing businesses are rising more slowly, driven by crude oil and petroleum prices."

Susannah Streeter, senior investment and markets analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, said: "The jumps in the cost of essentials have been showing up on grocery bills for some time and now it's made clear with the stark 16.4% rise in food inflation, the highest since 1977.

"It seems we are in a seventies time warp with runaway food prices, public sector strikes crippling services, and worries about energy supplies. The constant march upwards in prices is increasingly painful for consumers and companies, and for now shows little sign of quickly abating.

"This is difficult reading for Bank of England policymakers, as inflation is clearly proving sticker than they forecast. They are now likely to vote for another rise in interest rates at the December meeting, although expectations of another super-size hike still remain lower. So, a rise of 0.5% is on the cards next month with more to come with rates forecast to rise to around 4.5% - 4.75% by the middle of next year."

In equity markets, software firm Sage surged to the top of the FTSE 100 after full-year revenues beat expectations.

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 you have control unlike share prices you don' have control...all these plc companies runs by itself in colloboration with advisors, consultants, brokers, etc 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.

Shorts doomed to failure

Barclays has appointed Tim Main, Reid Marsh and Arif Vohra to new leadership roles as part of its strategy to accelerate growth in its Investment Banking franchise.

Tim Main will succeed Reid Marsh as Head of Investment Banking EMEA. Reid Marsh is appointed Global Chairman of Investment Banking and will join the Global Chairman’s Group. Arif Vohra will succeed Tim Main as Global Co-Head of Financial Institutions Group (FIG) Investment Banking.

“The investments we’ve made in our franchise over the past several years have been a key driver behind the market share gains we’ve achieved,” said John Miller, Global Co-Head of Investment Banking. “Our continued investment in our franchise – including through elevated roles for our most successful talent – will enable us to consolidate these gains through stronger regional perspectives, more expansive and consistent client coverage, and highly coordinated delivery of our services and advice.”

“Expanding our EMEA franchise is one of our clearest opportunities to grow our Investment Banking business globally – which is a strategic priority that underpins our delivery of sustainable growth in the Corporate and Investment Bank,” adds JF Astier, Global Co-Head of Investment Banking. “By elevating Tim, Reid and Arif into new roles in EMEA, we will enhance the seniority of our regional leadership, create more capacity for senior coverage of our client relationships, and expand the resources for management of our franchise in the region.”

As Head of Investment Banking, EMEA, Mr. Main will oversee Barclays’ regional Investment Banking franchise, leading the strategy for client coverage and ongoing investment across the UK, Continental Europe and the Middle East, and Africa. He joined Barclays’ FIG team in New York in 2016 and has co-led the team for the past several years, winning significant market share.

Mr. Marsh’s appointment to the Global Chairman’s Group is a recognition of his client relationships across the globe, and of his ability to deliver a consistent and differentiated advice to clients. The Global Chairman’s Group brings together the firm’s most senior and experienced investment bankers and empowers them to drive client relationships. Mr. Marsh joined Barclays in 2010 in the Industrials Group and has been Head of Investment Banking, EMEA, for the past five years.

Mr. Vohra joined Barclays earlier this year from Bank of America with more than 20 years of banking experience. In his new role, Mr. Vohra will partner with Joel Fleck, Global Co-Head of FIG, and will join the Investment Banking Management Team.
