Ochs, yes I agree that it shouldn't make a material difference to bottom line. My issue is as you said reputational and any possible legal fallout. That for me is the real issue here. Have they miss sold?

"is whether the gating of a widely-held unit trust furthers the appeal of more liquid exchange-traded funds, for which the platform charges no fees." Both Woodford and Barnett have under performed the FTSE100 over 1 3 and 5 years, by a lot. And the FTSE100 is about as bad as it gets terms of a major diversified index. Good marketing material for Vanguard if nothing else. That's the potential crisis. Propitiously for us shorts markets will take a pounding, on average, until the Fed cuts rates a couple of times, so HL heading back to the mid teens irrespective of Woodford. "... the group advocated long-term investing ..." one of the grossest most appalling lies the investment industry feeds us. See also 'time in the market not timing the market'.

greatballs, similar to what lomax99 said earlier, most of HLs business and bottom line is the platform business (0.45% per annum on funds) and they make money whether clients hold Woodford or switch into a different fund (once they can). Unless clients actually take their money off the HL platform en masse and move to rivals then this is unlikely to harm the medium term growth story. The biggest issue is reputational and whether investors will continue to trust HL's W50 going forward. I'd expect the investment director Lee Guardhouse (also manager of most of the Multi-Manager funds) to take the fall for their continuing support for Woodford over the past year or so.

Ochs (#365) - it's the uncrossing trade in the closing auction. Matches buyers and sellers.

greatballs, your call was right yesterday and I should have gone short at 2,130p given the chance... however now I think there'll be a bounce soon. Might not be tomor, but it will be soon. Look at SJP today after they announced the axing of Woody.

Large late trade at 16:35 - £16.7m at 1,981.5p, based on the pricing you'd think that was a sell but is being reported as a buy.

IC today:Woodford fallout spreads to Hargreaves LansdownShares in FTSE 100-listed Hargreaves Lansdown (HL) took a hit on Tuesday as investors in the retail investor platform braced themselves for further fallout from the suspension of trading in embattled active manager Neil Woodford's flagship Equity Income Fund. Hargreaves, which holds a stake in the fund through its multi-manager funds and listed it in its "Wealth 50 list" up until the suspension, has previously faced criticism for its continued backing of Mr Woodford's funds. During the past year, poor performance and investor outflows have reduced the size of the Equity Income Fund from £6.8bn to £3.7bn.Separately, the platform decided to remove the Woodford Income Focus Fund from its top fund picks ahead of a "resolution to the dealing suspension in the Woodford Equity Income fund". That isn't expected for up to 28 days, though the reputational hit to Hargreaves remains in question."The drop in the Hargreaves share price probably reflects some reputational risk," Shore Capital analyst Paul McGinnis said, but suggested that the platform's clients "have already been able to switch out of Woodford into other funds", and that it was not obvious from Hargreaves net flow data "that clients have been leaving the platform entirely". Hargreaves' head of investment Emma Wall said that while the group advocated long-term investing and backed Mr Woodford for his "compelling" track record, she acknowledged "the disappointment investors must feel with Woodford's recent performance".Whether regulators could apportion some blame to Hargreaves is a moot point. Earlier this year, a Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) investigation into the investment platform market concluded that recommended fund lists tended to help investors. Potential calls for another review in the wake of the Woodford fund gating may therefore meet some resistance. "The selection methodology and track record on such lists looks pretty solid," said Mr McGinnis.Shares in key Woodford holdings including Burford Capital (BUR), Redde (REDD) and Allied Minds (ALM) also fell on the news, as investors anticipated forced sales by the fund manager could provide more attractive entry points in the coming weeks. The FTSE 250-listed Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) also suffered a shareholder exodus, dropping as much as a fifth on Tuesday morning.IC ViewQuantifying Hargreaves' reputational hit from this saga is probably impossible at present. On balance, we would argue it is Neil Woodford – rather than one of his supporters – who is likely to remain in investors' memories for longer. The broader question for Hargreaves (and its peers) is whether the gating of a widely-held unit trust furthers the appeal of more liquid exchange-traded funds, for which the platform charges no fees. Hold at 2,132p.

hpcg - Stocks represent c. 34% of AUM (£31bn out of £91.6bn) at last year end. Stockbroking fees are c. 16% of HL's fees (£72.6m out of £447.6m) at last year end. Stockbroking activities deliver lower margins. I have no doubt there are better broking alternatives, so whilst they absolutely need to provide a broking facility, it is not where their focus is.

I hear adverts on the radio by lawyer looking for potential clients who lost money on investments sold by Barclays, Lloyds etc. Do you think these enterprising lawyers are going to attempt a class action against HL for continuing to promote Woodford’s Eq Inc fund? Surely the total compensation cannot account be anything like the -20% share price movement we have seen this week?

Pushed Woodford for too long and too hard. Some clients will not be happy and will complain for sure. Be interesting to see if they now actually do something like stop recommending his funds. Will take a while to understand extent of the fall out.

Odey have been short quite a while. They will get paid on this in due course. Worth keeping an eye on their short and whether they look to increase it.

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.

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.
