crazi: This could be a bargain It’s worth noting that although Lloyds profits are expected to fall, analysts still expect steady dividend growth. This seems reasonable to me — the bank has plenty of surplus capital and the current payout’s covered around three times by earnings. I can see room for growth. As a result, I think Lloyds could be a good income play at current levels. If broker forecasts are correct, anyone buying Lloyds shares at the current price could see their dividend yield reach 6% in 2023. The market wants growth In the meantime, new chief executive Charlie Nunn is focusing on two main areas to generate growth and improve profitability. The first is wealth management — selling asset management services to wealthy individuals. The second is a more dramatic shift. Lloyds aims to become one of the UK’s largest residential landlords, building and renting up to 50,000 homes. I agree that renting properties could generate higher returns than mortgages, but I also think this strategy carries some risks. If Lloyds’ property arm fails to deliver a good service, it could damage the bank’s wider reputation with consumers. Lloyds share price: buy, sell, or hold? I have some concerns about Lloyds’ property ambitions, but I see this as a fairly safe investment overall. Although profits are expected to dip next year, over time I expect Lloyds to make progress. In the meantime, I’d be happy to sit back and pocket the bank’s generous 5% dividend yield. On balance, I think Lloyds share price will rise above 50p again at some point. With the shares trading below this level, I’d be happy to buy this stock for my portfolio. Motley Fool

xxxxxy: In brief, Lloyds has had to deal with low interest rates, legacy technology, challenger banks, its idiotic PPI mis-selling, the post-financial crisis public perception that banks are the bad guys, and probably a load of other problems I've missed there.I'm a financial journalist, so I'm aware of all these things, yet still I held the shares.That's a classic example of the endowment effect, which leads us to be biased towards existing shareholdings.On the plus side, although the 19 per cent share price return over 12 years on those rights issue shares is rubbish, I have had some dividends.At about 15p per share worth since Lloyds restarted paying them in 2015, that's another 40 per cent return on investment.The next behavioural investing question is: 'Would I buy Lloyds now at this price?'It's not a total dud, but it's not great – especially when you compare it to the 265 per cent total return on the average UK equity income investment trust over the past 12 years.The next behavioural investing question before I decide whether to ditch it is: 'Would I buy Lloyds now at this price?'I just don't know. I still don't think a big UK bank is the best prospect, but it's a value recovery play.My go-to site for in-depth share analysis, Stockopedia, gives it a Stock Rank of 92 (100 is best) and puts it on a 12-month rolling PE of 7.Meanwhile, they aren't all fixed but Lloyds has spent the past decade sorting through a lot of those legacy issues, the lockdown hasn't been as bad as people thought for it, and the economy is bouncing back.It's wishful thinking but I'll probably stick with it, just maybe not for another 12 years....

xxxxxy: Bargain or value trap?A value trap is a share that seems cheap but is actually poor value when its business prospects are properly understood.There are definitely risks in the Lloyds share price, as I outlined above. But I don't see it as a value trap. With its large, profitable banking franchise, iconic set of brands, and continued strength in the UK lending market, I am bullish about the outlook for the financial services powerhouse. I see the current Lloyds share price as a bargain. I'd therefore consider topping up the Lloyds holding in my portfolio..... Motley Fool

richie1218: Lloyds Banking Group: What's the outlook for the shares under the new CEO? This leading investment bank is upbeat JP Morgan believes the transition between Charlie Nunn (who took up the role of CEO last month) and António Horta-Osório should be a smooth one A Wall Street bank believes the new boss of Lloyds Banking Group PLC (LSE:LLOY) will be picking up the baton from his predecessor rather than throwing the kitchen sink. If that doesn’t resonate, think of it this way: A ‘kitchen sink job’ is usually what the freshly arrived CEO does when a business is either failing or in need of a radical overhaul. In the parlance, he or she throws everything barring the kitchen sink, all the bad news, write-offs etc, into the first announcements of the new tenure. JP Morgan, in its latest note to clients, is suggesting that incoming Charlie Nunn has a far better inheritance than the departing António Horta-Osório, who was brought in to revive the fortunes of the black horse bank. Back in 2011, when the Portuguese took over, Lloyds was part-owned by the government and still bearing the scars of the global financial crisis and the ill-judged (if coerced) takeover of HBOS. “With Charlie Nunn taking over as the new Lloyds CEO in August, we expect a period of strategic reassessment followed by a new plan and investor update in February 2022,” said JPM in a note to clients. “Despite a weakening mortgage market, Lloyds’ top-line recovery remains on track in our view, driven by the yield curve and consumer recovery. “We believe that the Lloyds' management transition is unlikely to result in a materially negative reset of market expectations, which remain undemanding in the context of UK macro trends.” JPM’s analyst pointed out that after the recent pullback, “Lloyds offers the highest upside in UK banks on our forecasts”. It rates the shares overweight with a 60p price target, which represents a 42% premium to the current stock price. https://c.newsnow.co.uk/A/1094860532?-19482:33679

jrphoenixw2: From IG Index: 'Top 5 UK stocks to watch in September 2021 Analysts say these five FTSE 100 stocks are among the ones to watch this month. Here are their insights.' [In 2nd position of 5] 'Lloyds (LON: LLOY) Average 12-month target price: 52.49p Latest traded price: 44.09p Estimated upside potential: 19% Barclays, maintaining an ‘overweight’ call and 62p price target, sees ‘significant value’ in Lloyds shares. ‘We see Lloyds as best placed to deliver double-digit RoTE (return on tangible equity), consensus-beating earnings, whilst also benefitting from likely write-backs,’ Barclays analysts noted. Meanwhile, Bloomberg Intelligence (BI) wrote that the uptick in UK mortgage demand has been ‘a powerful tailwind’ for UK banks. However, despite the mortgage market’s attractiveness, Lloyds has said that more competitive pricing and several other sectors would ensure it remained disciplined in its underwriting. ‘While the strength in pipeline for 3Q mortgage volumes was also highlighted, Lloyds’ view that a slowdown is due in 4Q… tallies with our thinking and should slow the housing market,’ BI added. As of Monday (30 Aug), research teams were largely optimistic on the LLOY stock, with 16 recommending ‘buy’, seven suggesting ‘hold’, and three with ‘sell’ calls. Their average 12-month target price stood at 52.49p, Bloomberg data showed. That implies a potential upside of 19% based on Monday’s close. hTtps://www.ig.com/uk/news-and-trade-ideas/top-5-uk-stocks-to-watch-in-september-2021-210831

cobourg1: According to Bloomberg this morning many undervalued UK companies are having a slide rule run over them by larger International entities. Morrison's is thought to be just the first. Lloyds share price 43.4 pence, tangible asset value 59 pence. Earnings recovering nicely and much of the recent debt covered by government guarantees. If anyone was rumoured to be trying to take them out it would do wonders for the share price. Any kind of rumour would do, even if it wasn't true. Probably unlikely though as there would be a public outcry and the government would not be keen to see a chunk of the British mortgage market disappear overseas. The share ownership is also very fragmented which would mean it would be difficult to organise. A merger with a British bank giving Lloyds some overseas exposure would be much easier to pull off, as there would only be monopoly issues to contend with. Pity! At least my load are paid for and are sub 44p so I can hold for better times. Serve the board right though if it did happen for taking such a cavalier attitude towards their shareholders.

jl5006: Apart from my comments about the detritus in No 10 and the inability of HOC to make posturing threats to enable LLOY share price not to rise. It may not be what we hoped it would be - but as a landlord? Stifled by PRA - the divi is pathetic - remember the quarterly promise - Why are the BOD allowed to give themselves so much. Should I get to break even I should get out1

stonedyou: Morningstar...... Equity Research & InsightsWhy Are Lloyds Shares Cheap?VIDEO: The latest in our video series looks at Lloyds Banking Group, which has just restarted dividends. James Gard: Each week we look at one stock that is cheap or expensive and why. This week is the turn of Lloyds Banking Group, which owns Halifax, Bank of Scotland and pension provider Scottish Widows. Lloyds shares slumped in 2020 as investors feared that the bank would be hit hard in U.K. recession. Along with other banks in the U.K. sector, Lloyds was prevented from paying dividends by the regulator. But Lloyds has just announced that it will resume dividend payments this year, although at lower levels than in 2019. Life is looking much brighter for banks this year. Mortgage lending is at record levels and consumers are splashing out on credit cards and using overdrafts, now the economy is opening up. Why do Morningstar analysts think Lloyd's shares are cheap? They have risen around 30% so far this year, but it's still below their pre-pandemic levels. Lloyds, as a pure play in the U.K. economy can benefit from the recovery and growth. The bank's balance sheet is also stronger than its rivals. We assign a 62p per share fair value to Lloyd shares, but they are trading around 46p. https://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/news/214594/why-are-lloyds-shares-cheap.aspx

freddie01: Lloyds shares fall as new chief Charlie Munn takes over The FTSE 100 stock, which has been trading sideways recently, fell below 45p a share this week. Lloyds (LON: LLOY) shares are down by over 3% this week Former HSBC executive took over as chief executive on Monday (16 August 2021) He joins Lloyds, the UK’s third largest bank by market capitalisation, two weeks after its acquisition of Embark One of his immediate tasks will be the group’s “Strategic Review 2021” Interested in trading Lloyds shares? Open an account with us to get started. New chief executive fails to lift market sentiments Lloyds Banking Group’s new chief executive Charlie Nunn is off to a rocky start. At least that’s what the bank’s share price performance so far this week is telling us. Nunn assumed his new role officially on Monday. Lloyds shares have since fallen 3.4%. Market performance aside, Nunn says he feels ‘privileged’ to step into the role of chief executive, as Lloyds ‘is an organisation I’ve observed and admired from a distance for many years’. ‘So while I have a good feel for the business and its role in the sector, I know I still have a lot to learn about Lloyds Banking Group – and there’s nothing like getting up close and personal to really understand an organisation,’ he wrote in a post on day one. ‘That’s why I’m planning to spend the first few months getting to know our people, our customers and our business better before outlining any strategic plans.’ He will then turn his attention to the group’s “Strategic Review 2021”, first announced in February 2021. Other matters, including a recent £390 million acquisition of retirement solutions provider Embark, will likely be high on Nunn’s to-do list. The former HSBC executive’s appointment was first announced last November, replacing Antonio Horta-Osorio, who held the position for a decade. Why are analysts divided on the stock? Two weeks ago, the group reported its H1 2021 results, in which profits jumped up to £3.9 billion, against a £0.6 billion loss in H1 2020. Credit Suisse, JPMorgan and UBS analysts then raised their target prices on Lloyds shares, which are up 27.5% so far this year. Credit Suisse maintained an ‘outperform’ call on the stock while lifting the price target on LLOY to 61p from 60p a share, on the back of higher revised earnings for the rest of 2021, 2022 and 2023. UBS raised its price target to 55p from 54p previously alongside a ‘buy’ rating, while JPMorgan, which continues to recommend ‘outperform’, is now eyeing a fair value estimate of 60p, up from 59p before. However, Goldman Sachs cut its rating on the stock to ‘sell’ from ‘neutral’ and price target to 45p from 50p. The firm believes that mortgage pricing is ‘again becoming a headwind’ for UK banks, and as such sees ‘risks being skewed to the downside, with mortgage pricing testing prior trough levels of around 80-90bp becoming a distinct possibility’. hTtps://www.ig.com/uk/news-and-trade-ideas/lloyds-shares-fall-as-new-chief-executive-takes-over-210818
