jubberjim: I had and have been investing since 1989 I signed up with Hargreaves Lansdown back in late 2017 The service was exampalary the information provided was first class Since then it has been a slow decline as information that was readily available declined was taken off and despite repeated promises that it would be replaced in the near future is still in abeyance I believe this is behind the general dissatisfaction on my part and doubtless countless others that is behind the fall off in regular trading Unless swift action is taken I feel the share will continue to wallow and labour in the near future. Promises broken and at the moment so is HL. It will take time to fix Radical shake up of management required the front facing operatives I cannot fault My opinion
sunshine today: Rubbish management as seen by the share price chart.
ochs: Remember bear markets are usually much shorter than bull markets. Although they can be a lot more extreme in their speed, and hence big rapid falls. People keeping worrying about AUM, but remember the DOW and the S&P 500 are still above their pre-pandemic Feb 2020 peaks even after the recent falls. In Feb 2020 HL's share price was more like £16 - so compute that @sunshine Today?
tim 3: Good points Specto.You see it all the time people see big falls in a share price and think because its fallen a lot it's cheap, now if it's a quality share that is getting pulled down with the rest of the market then they may be right but when a share is dropping much more than the overall market then caution is advised as there are often underlying issues with the company.
jubberjim: Unfortunately until there is a conclusion to the culpability of the various parties involved and responsibility is apportioned this will continue to impact on Hargreaves share price in the near to medium term I prefer to wait until there is clear air before investing any more monies into the present day markets Comments from the likes of Dimon. And others do not arbour well for investors at the moment Liquidity is my primary concern for now Will wait and see for now
lomax99: It is on Citywire:Next month marks the third anniversary of the suspension of the Woodford Equity Income fund and 36 months since the Financial Conduct Authority launched an inquiry into the scandal affecting 300,000 investors. Star fund manager Nick Train wants to know what on earth the hold-up is, believing the uncertainty is weighing on the shares he holds in Hargreaves Lansdown.Speaking at the Frostrow investment companies conference in the City of London yesterday, Train, whose firm Lindsell Train is Hargreaves' second biggest shareholder with a 12.8% stake, called for those involved in the running and promotion of Neil Woodford's fund and business to be either 'sued or exonerated'.Train, who holds Hargreaves in his £1.8bn Finsbury Growth & Income (FGT) investment trust and £5.3bn Lindsell Train UK Equity fund, said there was 'no point in not being transparent and candid' about the poor performance of the shares.Despite operating the UK's largest retail investment platform, with £132bn of assets under administration and a leading share of the growing market in DIY investing and shares in the FTSE 100, the Bristol-based broker has lost 64% in three years. By contrast the UK stock market is up 13%.Hargreaves played a leading role in supporting Woodford (pictured above) when the former star equity income fund manager left Invesco to set up his own business. It invested heavily in the Equity Income fund through its own multi-manager funds and included it in its Wealth 50 recommendations list right up until the fund's suspension in June 2019.Train (above), who also runs the £6.9bn Lindsell Train Global Equity fund, said the involvement had hung over the investment platform, noting that the FCA had failed to draw any conclusions or pin any blame despite an ongoing report into the scandal.'It is three years almost to the month since the suspension of the Woodford fund and we have not been offered any report on the circumstances,' said Train.'People who participated in that – to a greater or lesser extent – need to be sued or exonerated. I can see why people are waiting for that.'Hargreaves not AmazonTrain also noted that heavy selling of Hargreaves shares by founders Peter Hargreaves and Stephen Lansdown had held back the stock. The former sold £300m of shares in February 2021, just a year after offloading £550m of stock, while the latter sold more than £250m of shares post-lockdown.Train said the selling was 'not helpful' to the share price.He also criticised the company for failing to invest more in the platform business until this year, choosing instead to reward shareholders with special dividends.'We are forever badgering Hargreaves to stop paying so much in special dividends and invest more in functionality and opportunities that present themselves to the biggest investment platform in the UK,' he said.'There is evidently major opportunities to expand the business... but they need to spend to do it,' Train said.However, the fund manager noted Hargreaves was not given credit when it did invest. In February, the shares tumbled more than 15% when it canned its accustomed additional dividend to plough £175m into a new five-year digital and advice strategy.Train said if Amazon had announced a similar investment strategy 'then the shares would have been up 15% because investors would have rewarded the entrepreneurial spirit.' The Hargreaves investment was 'not afforded any value' because of the previous focus on the special dividend, he said.Last December FCA chief executive Nikhil Rathi (above) told MPs on the Treasury Select Committee that all key evidence had been gathered in the Woodford inquiry and he expected all investigation work to be complete by the end of the year. However, he cautioned that the evidence would be subject to legal review that could necessitate 'the need for further focused evidence acquisition'. Broker's cash pileMeanwhile, Hargreaves Lansdown has accumulated a cash pile of £433m at the end of last year, which could be useful if it receives a fine in this high-profile case, although the execution-only broker will doubtless argue it never advised investors to buy Woodford's fund.Aside from the regulatory uncertainty, Hargreaves' sliding share price decline mystifies Train. While it has faced growing competitive pressure, the broker has, as the manager highlighted in Finsbury Growth's results this week, proved remarkably profitable, generating an impressive 50% return on equity, the best in his portfolio. From its May 2019 peak of £24.19 the stock has tumbled £15.58 to 861p, down a further 3.2% today, and no longer features as a top-10 holding in Train's trust or funds.Hargreaves' poor share performance sums up a torrid 18 months for Train who, having outperformed the FTSE All-Share for up to 18 years, has fallen way behind the index as his quality growth style has fallen out of favour.Over three years, even with dividends included, Finsbury Growth shares have fallen 7%, compared to the 15% total average return of trusts in its AIC UK Equity Income sector. Nevertheless, he is confident his picks of financially strong global franchises such as Diageo, Burberry and Unilever will re-rate as markets again appreciate their reliability.
porsche1945: Have finally bought in, bad news for these has pretty much flushed through i would think, most seems to be priced in, I dont see them ever getting back to 24 quid, but, I do think 15/16 is possible over an 18 month time frame, and there could be a hostile takeout offer at this price, its a lot of business for the money. I’m thinking majority owners will be putting pressure on, they want to exit, but not at this price. It’s a buy when theres blood on the streets stock at the moment but their numbers, i think, are ok, better than I thought they would be. I’d expect a bounce tomorrow or later today and then a slow grind upwards. The yield on them now pretty good, and when they go back to paying specials if you enter around this price your looking at 6 pc plus in a growth company.
ochs: Yes, shocking share price performance today and yday... so the Brewin Dolphin news hasn't helped at all. Even AJB have gone up!
ochs: On 7 March Brewin shares got as low as 250p... less than 1 month later they are being bought for 515p in cash, which is pretty amazing - a £1.5b valuation. HL share price on 7 March was about 970p, so that would imply a takeout valuation of around £19 if there were to be a similar premium, a valuation of around £9b - I assume Schwab have deep enough pockets?
lomax99: Questor today:Questor: Why have Hargreaves' shares fallen for two years? Modern day chartists have the answerQuestor share tip: shares peaked just before the Woodford bombshell dropped, but the customers just keep comingTo a historian, a "chartist" is someone who supported the campaign for a reformist "people's charter" in the mid-19th century; to a modern-day investor it's someone who hopes to get an edge by studying share price graphs.Questor would not claim to be a full-blooded chartist (in the latter sense) but does think that on occasion there is something to be learned from the shape of these graphs, which is why we publish them with all our tips.What can we say about the share price chart of Hargreaves Lansdown, the "investment shop", over the past five years? If we iron out the short-term swings, it rose briskly until mid-2019 and then went into reverse. As a result the shares are no higher today than they were in November 2017, almost four years ago. Over that period sales have risen smartly, from £448m in the year to June 2018 to £631m this year, and profits have followed suit (£292m before tax in 2018; £366m this year).Why does the share price graph not follow the rising trajectory of sales and profits? Questor's two-word answer is: Neil Woodford. That share price peak in mid-2019 came just before the announcement that trading in his flagship fund had been suspended, the biggest bombshell to hit the fund management world in years.The Woodford collapse may no longer be in the headlines every day but the aftershocks are still being felt. The idea that the way to get rich as a private saver is to identify "star" fund managers is on the wane; the entire concept of active fund management, which was already under pressure from cheap passive funds that few humans seemed able to beat, took another knock.Hargreaves, as a company that promoted active management, star managers and Woodford in particular, was especially exposed.This at least is how the City seems to see things. Hargreaves' customers, to judge by their behaviour, beg to differ. In the year to June 2018 they numbered 1.1m; now there are 1.6m. At the end of the financial year to June 2020, when any exodus of customers disgusted by the Woodford connection would have taken place, the company had 1.4m. In 2018 they entrusted Hargreaves with £91.6bn; that total had grown to £104bn in June last year, when coronavirus had wreaked havoc with share prices, and now stands at £136bn.Of course we don't know how many customers it would have now if Woodford hadn't happened, and must acknowledge some of its customers signed on in the stock-buying boom of last year's lockdowns; those clients were probably younger and, as keen traders in individual stocks, were probably less bothered about Hargreaves' involvement with fund managers.Worries about inflation and about the switch from "growth" to "value" stocks are also likely to have weighed on Hargreaves' share price. But this is a company that is able to support growing numbers of customers, and their assets, from a largely fixed cost base and make high returns on capital and pots of cash in the process. Sooner or later big investors will forget Woodford and start to focus on the numbers again. Hold.Questor says: holdTicker: HL.Share price at close: £15.75
