lomax99 I have share accounts with HL, IG and Barclays. HL are very good when it comes to corporate actions, but expensive if one is a semi regular trade. Exchange rates for foreign currencies are outrageous. Coverage outside the UK is moderate. IG much better for someone experienced; slightly lower cost for dealing fees but the main attraction is DMA, especially on NASDAQ where the HFT will steel your pennies unless one uses a limit order. No open ended funds, which is not much hardship excepting in fixed interest and some other esoteric markets. Barclays struggle with anything complicated, but their dealing engine is still better than HL. I've never owned a fund with them. Since they simplified their offering they have become less attractive to use. They were good for structured products, which if you know how to use them offered some excellent opportunities when the time was right.

A long way to go (down, naturally) on this, I think. https://www.ft.com/content/cf332cf4-86d8-11e9-a028-86cea8523dc2

Oversold but may track lower, given current 'noise'. Long term structural growth story still intact. (Just look at the 'competition' and the 'quality' of their operations & margins!). Hoping for positive update on Active Savings in forthcoming results. Will add, progressively more, on subsequent dips.

I agree, why would you buy it, every company linked to HL could feel the company is toxic, they will want better deals and with the amount of bad press snowballing can only be downward pressure for a long time as the Woodford sxxtshow I think could take 6-12 months to try and manage down, maybe longer, certainly wont be open in 28 days, everytime they open the doors there will be a stampede for cash. I expect HL will have to throw someone under the bus pretty soon, expect a resignation from that little twerp Dampier and maybe someone higher up the foodchain. Hargreaves always pretty vocal, lets hope he puts his foot in it too. I have taken a short position now as well.

Trebled my short at just over 2000. You'd have 1650 just on the shape of the markets, never mind the regulatory threats. The other question from a short perspective, is remove the existential concerns, what on earth is the buy case on fundamentals?

...the moment it really hits that the regulator is investigating HL these are down to 12 quid, a really good short looming.

Dampier offloaded 6 million quids worth of shares in the few weeks preceeding this, naughty. I couldnt work out why HL were not in the x hairs of the regulator ages ago, this pumping of Woodford especially actually caused me to close my ac with them a few years ago, moved to iweb, because of the endless mailshots they said I could not opt out of, I cited the pushing of Woodfords uk facing dross as a concern to them at the time. FT this morning says finance minister now going to look at tie up between platforms and funds, Lindsell Train own a huge chunk of HL, HL owned a huge chunk of Woodentop, all unhealthy and about to get " found out ". Meanwhile Mr Lansdown down in the Channel Islands counting his tax free billions and Hargreaves prattles on about how great the brexit sxxtshow will work out, meanwhile the poor idiot investors are probably waiting a year I reckon to be able to access whats left of their dosh.

GrowthPotential / a1samu - HL pumped a demonstrably failing fund, and one that sailed close to the wind with UCITS requirements. There is an argument to be had that a list of 'our favourite funds' is tantamount to advice. If 'our favourite funds' happen to be more commercially attractive than not our favourite funds, then there is more than a little conflict of interest. So yes, there is potential for miss-selling, but that is not my central thesis. HL is highly rated, and that rating implies high quality growth. I would argue that investors in the Woodford funds are likely to be the least risk aware, and while the promotional material always clearly states no guarantees, this isn't advice, etc etc, the nods and winks imply otherwise. I would also suggest the portrayal of Woodford as a lone contrarian hero winning out against the smart kids with their computers and sums and whatnot, and now he's battling for Britain, would appeal to the least sophisticated cohort of investors. Even if marginal growth is curtailed this is sufficient to derate as even at the current share price it is priced for perfection. There is absolutely no reason it should not trade down to where it was earlier in the year.

I would challenge that view in that HL is a platform and there's little damage that can arise from this. Investors are fully aware of the risks of funds and as such it's most likely going to be remembered as a bad fund rather than a platform error

IMO this will be a slow burner as the swift de-risk, as we saw on the open, while there remains a bid from dip buyers, as per the middle of the session. HL are reliant on platform fees from open ended funds, and their trusted name to generate business. At this share price people are paying for profits years in advance. This event only has to slow growth to bring the multiple down to something much more reasonable.

I've gone short on the bounce. Can see it going back to the trend line at least. As an HL customer I know their modus operandi is to promote the concept of the star manager. This episode damages that whole thesis, which as we know is nonsense in any case. As you say Ochs, their own holdings through the MM funds (layer upon layer upon layer of fees) cause direct damage. Their wealth 50 (whose wealth exactly?) might well be regulated out of existence as being in effect advisory. Hefty director sales and an uncertain stock market world wide. Good odds of the short coming good IMO.

I'm short of Woodford Patient Capital, which is down quite a bit today. I suspect the board will now be under great pressure to fire Woodford as portfolio manager or he'll resign to concentrate on his struggling unit trusts. Another short opportunity could be St James Place as they have a number of their funds run by Woodford and unlike HL have provided paid for financial advice to clients to invest with Woodford. As you probably know HLs 'recommendations' are all on a non-advisory basis. That said they've chosen to retain investments with Woodford through their multi-manager funds which is likely to hurt clients invested in those.

greatballsoffire451 - you were right that the HL share price has fallen first thing (as has Woodford Patient Capital), however why do you think HL won't take monthly fees on investments in the suspended Woodford fund? Client's will still hold it and it will be valued at the last quoted asset value (ie. from 31/5).
