freddie01: Lloyds - buy, sell or hold? Nicholas Hyett | Equity Analyst | 13 February 2018 | A A A Lloyds - buy, sell or hold? No recommendation No news or research item is a personal recommendation to deal. All investments can fall as well as rise in value so you could get back less than you invest. As a shareholder in Lloyds, I regularly ask myself whether it’s an investment I’m still happy with. Should I reduce my investment, or should I invest more? A week before Lloyds’ annual results, I thought I’d share my current thoughts about the UK’s leading high street bank. Buy Lloyds' success in recent years has been steady rather than spectacular. But we think that underestimates the progress the bank has made. Lloyds has ironed out the problems from the financial crisis and strengthened its position as a leader in retail and small business banking. Its size gives it an edge over competitors, while it’s also been well ahead of the game on the introduction of digital banking. As a result it has the lowest cost/income ratio of the high street banks, and continues to make improvements. Lower costs, growth in loans to clients and an improved net interest margin (the difference between what the bank pays on deposits and charges on loans) means that net income growth is healthy. With the core businesses firing on all cylinders, the group’s generating additional capital hand over fist. A healthy balance sheet and comparatively low risk business lines means Lloyds is well positioned to return capital to shareholders (in the form of special dividends) or use it to fuel expansion. Having recently signalled that he would be staying on at the bank for at least the next few years, CEO Antonio Horta-Osorio has taken the chance to look to the future. The group is scheduled to announce the findings of a strategic review alongside results next week. Following the deal last October to buy Zurich's UK workplace pensions and savings business, we wouldn't be surprised if Scottish Widows was set for a higher profile position in the group. In the meantime though the bank is continuing to squeeze profit growth from the core business and pass the benefits on to shareholders. The stock offers a prospective 6.9% yield for 2018. Sell Since we last wrote a “Buy, Sell or Hold” article on Lloyds in January last year, the share price has risen 2.2%, compared to a market loss of 0.4%. Over that time period you’d have also received 3.2p per share in dividends*. Assuming you reinvested that dividend you’re sitting on a total return of around 9.7%, over not much more than 12 months (not accounting for any charges). Those who invested in the turnaround of the UK’s largest high street bank have been well rewarded. That alone might convince investors it’s time to look for opportunities elsewhere. And changes over the last year have seen Lloyds become a higher-risk business. Consumer Finance assets accounted for 10% of total loans and advances to customers at the half year, compared to 7.4% a year earlier. Consumer finance loans, which include credit cards and car finance agreements, are higher-risk than the mortgages and small business loans that make up the rest of the Lloyds portfolio. Credit cards are unsecured, so unlike a mortgage there’s no asset to sell if the debt isn’t repaid. When economies turn sour, borrowers can quickly run up significant debts on credit cards, some of which will never be repaid. Individual amounts might be small from a bank’s perspective, but when lots of debt turns bad at the same time, that’s not good news. Perhaps most concerning, this shift isn’t just a reflection of the £1.9bn deal to buy Bank of America’s MBNA credit card business. Total loans in other parts of the business are in decline. Consumer finance is growing while the rest of the business shrinks. These trends make Lloyds more sensitive to an economic slowdown. That’s happening at a time when the outlook for the UK economy is uncertain and interest rates look set to rise – making credit card debt more expensive and increasing the likelihood that borrowers will default. There are certainly reasons for caution. Hold There’s a middle way. Lloyds has become a fairly healthy high street bank. Yes there are risks from increased exposure to higher-risk consumer credit, and yes the UK economy is looking less certain than some might wish. But high street banking isn’t going anywhere, and Lloyds has a dominant market position. A very healthy balance sheet saw Lloyds comfortably pass the Bank of England’s most severe stress tests to date. The tests modelled a simultaneous recession, property crash and sudden interest rate hikes, tougher conditions than the financial crisis. Lloyds should be able to generate healthy profits in most conditions – although there’s always the potential for economic or regulatory curveballs. But it’s not a get rich quick scheme. Improvements to the core business will be incremental rather than dramatic, and remember that much of the recent progress has drawn on impressive cost savings. That well isn’t bottomless. However, we would urge investors not to lose sight of the impending strategy review. Antonio Horta-Osorio has proven an exceptionally able CEO at Lloyds. The successful separation of TSB compares particularly well to RBS’ repeatedly botched attempts to dispose of the Williams & Glyn business. There are several directions in which he could choose to take the bank going forwards, with potential to fuel further growth or de-risk the bank again. Many investors will feel he deserves to be listened to next week. hxxp://
maroni tony: I was encouraged to claim PPI on my LLOY credit cards going back to 1990. After a load of paperwork, phone calls and time, my total claim gave me the grand total of £50, & 40% of that went to the claims company. Wasn't worth it hassle. If it's PPI that is holding back LLOY share price, I'm sure the price will rocket in due course.
utyinv: National Grid; supposedly the best Utility in the world with business in the US but still 100% British Owned and Corbyn wants to destroy it. Have a Happy, Healthy and Properoes New Year everybody. Hopefully, the Lloy share price will start to rally as the dreaded PPI has only 18months to run. Maybe starting on 22nd Feb, results, the share price will start its correction to being closer to £1.🤞🙏
raffles the gentleman thug: Exactly is six months ago LLOY share price was 71p and forward EPS 7.00p a share. Today the share price is 65.6p and forward EPS 7.26p a share and thats before the benefit of rate rises - such has been the de-rating of this bank
goldpiguk: Hi whitestone, Yes you are correct that Lloyds is very positively exposed to rising interest rates. The Market agrees but following Mark Carney's comments yesterday it believes they will rise much more slowly than previously anticipated. Hence the LLOY share price retreat. Goldpig
raffles the gentleman thug: It's actually a huge issue Polar Fox, and if Labour doesn't make politicalCapital out of it they really are most incompetent. It's indefensible how the Government resists public sector wage demands whilst unit labour costs in the private sector are galloping away. I can only assume the Conservatives are desperately trying to keep their powder dry in order to fight the next election (which could come at any moment) with inflation busting increases - which is precisely why there is only upside to Interest Rates and the LLOY share price

sux_2bu: Anyone know how to turn the cloud taps off ? Another wash out summer. A bit like lloy share price today.
pierre oreilly: Ah, so the lloyds bank spending report is the only thing driving the lloy share price. Jeeze smarty, you really aren't very good at formulating information from data.
raffles the gentleman thug: Don't think things are that desperate essential ... you might think but I consider the Poll of Polls data shows a relatively convincing outcome for both the election and the LLOY share price from here. I would be a lot more nervous if I were sitting in pharma and overseas earners which are about to see a nasty sector rotation back to domestic cyclicals IMO
