Strongly agree re buybacks Jeffian.Banks wasted £billions buying back ahead of their shares crashing in the 2008 crash. Then they reissued them and far more than they had bought back in heavily discounted rights issues at a fraction of the buyback prices. Those who did well were not those supposedly rewarded with the buybacks (they lost heavily)but those buying in the rights issues or after them. And they are now getting dividends too. E.g. From Lloyds. No wonder Directors love buybacks. Their bonus payments are often based on eps, and fewer shares in issue means higher eps - but note often NOT an increasing share price.

"Never let the tax tail wag the dog 128." Hear, hear! A lesson I've learned the hard way. Jimmy Durante? "Dey said Napoleon wuz mad. Dey said Rasputin wuz mad. Dey said Louie wuz mad...." "Who's Louie?" "He's my brudder. He WUZ mad!"

Never let the tax tail wag the dog 128. I never think of CGT when thinking of getting out of a share and taking profit. 20 pct hit for me yes if it's not in the sipp or isa but that's life.What's cgt basic rate these days? 10 pct.....20 pct for higher rate taxpayers.Take it on the chin if you are tempted to take some profit. You're allowed £11k tax free anyway. Any of your holdings in an isa then no tax issues.Spread betting for far dates for long term holds also a fine way of avoiding CGT.

I purchased my first tranche of HSBA on the 1st August 2013 - exactly 4 years ago today. Since then I have been adding to them quietly, purchasing some as low as £4.684, and now have a fraction under 54,000 shares. The Chinese economy seems to be good, whilst this absurd Brexit fiasco can only get worse and is bound to drag the UK economy downwards. So, in theory, I should hold. But how much higher can HSBA shares go? If I sell, I will be caned by HMRC, as I have nothing to sell at a loss to offset a gain which will be approaching £70K. Selling a partial amount does not seem any wiser.... All I can think of is that wonderful song by Jimmy Durante, (which really shows my age), "Did you ever get thr feeling you wanted to go, but then you had the feeling you wanted to stay" Hey Ho! Decisions; decisions. What would you do?

Apart from what finkwot above has posted, I would repost your 7826 on the new "Revived" link, as this one is supposed to be closed, for a bigger audience. Making a profit can be a real bummer at times - wish I had your problem! Good luck

I'd sell enough to use up my CGT allowance. £11,300 profit. Bingo. Personally I'm holding on, but I don't have anywhere near that amount.

I assuming that the 'law' of supply and demand applies, as when the 'buy back' shares are 'cancelled' it effectively leaves those in the Market potentially more likely to retain value. The maximum number of Ordinary Shares that could be repurchased under this Buy-back scheme is 1,986,691,641. That's quite a sizeable chunk

I must say that, although I get the theory that reducing the shares in issue increases NAV/eps for the remainder, I really struggle with the idea that share buybacks are "returning surplus capital to shareholders". They are returning all the surplus capital to some of the shareholders errrr...... who are no longer shareholders because they've sold their shares! Whether Mr. Market rewards the rest of us with an increased share price is a bit of a lottery. The press comment says that it is a good thing because simply increasing the divi may be unsustainable in the long run but so what? It could be done by a "Special Dividend" (which is a one-off by its nature) or a Return of Capital (unfortunately, now treated as a dividend for tax purposes) and then all of the surplus is spread across all of the shareholders rather than just those who agree to sell. Still, Mr. Market seems to like it so far.

By Nisha Gopalan (Bloomberg Gadfly) -- Pop the champagne. HSBC Holdings Plc, riding a share surge, is promising another great giveaway that might ring in even more price gains. Once the dividend play of note, HSBC has become the buyback king. On Monday, after reporting a larger-than-estimated jump in second-quarter profit, the London-headquartered bank announced plans for a buyback of as much as $2 billion before the year is out. Armed with a strong core equity Tier 1 ratio of 14.7 percent, plus a clean bill of health at its U.S. operations, HSBC can afford to be generous. That generosity has the happy coincidence of boosting profitability too, not to mention getting as-yet-unconvinced analysts on board. HSBC second-quarter adjusted pretax profit +13% By reducing the number of shares in circulation, the buyback puts HSBC within striking distance of its 10 percent return-on-equity goal. (The bank no longer gives a time frame for when it might achieve this, however.) HSBC posted an ROE of 8.8 percent for the first half, compared with 7.4 percent in the same period of 2016. The buyback, on top of the $3.5 billion already undertaken over the past 12 months, adds some gloss to a payout strategy that was beginning to wear thin. Despite CEO Stuart Gulliver's comments that the bank has paid out more in dividends over the past year than any other European or American lender, HSBC no longer has the allure of progressive dividends. On Monday, it continued its projections of "sustained dividends," but the rising share price has taken a toll on payout yields. The challenge of finding a successor for Gulliver, who retires next year, also still looms. In March, for the first time in its 150-year history, HSBC chose an outsider, AIA head Mark Tucker, to replace HSBC veteran Douglas Flint as chairman. Tucker, and the new CEO, will be steering a much stronger bank, but one whose "pivot to Asia" program has a way to go. And Brexit is approaching. Even so, Monday's good news outweighed the bad by a wide margin. Revenue increased for a second quarter, and crucially, expenses look to be under control. So-called adjusted jaws, a figure that measures growth in revenue versus growth in costs, came in at 0.5 percent, compared with a negative 0.6 percent in the first quarter. They're results that justify the number of Chinese investors rushing headlong into HSBC's stock of late. Lured by dividends that are more attractive than domestic banks, mainland buyers now own 4.3 percent of HSBC's shares through the trading link that connects Hong Kong with Shanghai. That's up from 2.3 percent four months ago, when such data first became available. With interest rates in the U.S. on the rise, and this buyback in the cards, HSBC investors can expect their good fortune to continue. This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of Bloomberg LP and its owners.
