Oh dear...

Who would buy NatWest shares?

If you see ‘Sid’, tell him not to touch this load of old flannel with a bargepole

22 November 2023 • 2:47pm

Jeremy Hunt’s half-hearted impersonation of Nigel Lawson at the height of Thatcherism served only to remind us that nostalgia isn’t as good as it used to be.

The Chancellor cited Lawson by name when repeating his dictum that borrowing is merely deferred taxation on future generations. Yet the public debt mountain he detailed is so Everest-like that the Late Lord Lawson of Blaby would surely not have been impressed.

Hunt’s most obvious and eye-catching channelling of the 1980s spirit of free enterprise came when he floated the idea of a grand sell-off of NatWest shares acquired by the state during the great banking bailouts of 2008.

“It is time to get Sid investing again,” said Hunt. For the youthful uninitiated, that was a reference to the advertising campaign used to promote the British Gas privatisation of 1986 which involved a search for the mythical Sid with the aim of telling him to apply for some shares because they were a sure thing. And indeed the share issue was greatly oversubscribed and the share price soared after privatisation.

Alas, the same is unlikely to be true of the 39 per cent or so of NatWest stock still owned by taxpayers. That giant holding has lost value over the past year amid the great debanking row and various economic headwinds and there is little reason to expect a post privatisation boom.

Sid is probably retired by now and therefore will have been reassured by the continuation of the triple lock on the uprating of pensioner benefits. But his modern equivalents may be struggling too hard with soaring rents and the rest of the cost-of-living crisis to get excited about the possibility of buying tranches of bank shares.

The prospect of a big NatWest sell-off is highly unlikely to recreate a zeitgeist of economic optimism and excitement. Loadsamoney, double-breasted suits, big hair and all the other glorious material vulgarities of the Thatcherite age are but a distant memory. Some will even fear that buying into NatWest is more likely to involve associating with the bank’s “values” of wokery – even in the post-Alison Rose world – than in any great prospect of yielding shareholder value.

As shadow chancellor Rachel Reeves pointed out, despite his national insurance cuts, the Chancellor did nothing to unfreeze income tax thresholds – a measure that constitutes by far the biggest tax increase of modern times, especially during a period of high inflation. The bald truth is that the tax burden is set to be the highest it has been since the Second World War.

One does not have to be a hardened cynic to suspect that Hunt’s statements pledging fidelity to the idea of a low-tax economy and sharper incentives for wealth creation are more likely to amount to an election-year pose than a long-term change of direction. Neither is the idea of 110 mostly small-scale and nerdy ideas to boost growth likely to cut the mustard with voters who have been let down too many times already.

So if you see Sid tell him: don’t touch this load of old flannel with a bargepole.

Hunt just mentioned something about a retail share offer of NatWest shares in the next 12 months. No detail at all. I see the share price spiked down on the charts above.

Barclays said it had upgraded NatWest on signs of slowing deposit migration, and now sees it as best placed to overcome term-funding risks.

It looks for a substantial rebound in net interest margin and earnings, ahead of consensus, driven by a best-in-class structural hedge tailwind.

“As well as now being 10% ahead of consensus 2024E PBT, we see NatWest as able to comfortably deliver a double-digit RoTE over the medium term, even in the unlikely event of sharp rate cuts or a significant re-acceleration in deposit migration,” it said.

Barclays remains positive on Lloyds, rated overweight and has raised its price target to 67p from 65p, but prefers the better NIM trajectory at NatWest, underpinned by its best-in-class structural hedge yield, which is set to comfortably overtake that of Lloyds.

Barclays has moved NatWest to overweight from equal weight with a 330p price target, well above today's 205p share price.

Smithie6....what you need to understand is that Nat West used shareholders money to create or purchase that app. They no doubt have a vast number of people involved in non jobs as it continues to act like a minor Government department.

Nat West as a business needs root and branch reform, a bit like a lot of corporate Britain. Note easyJets share price response to what was supposed to be there best ever quarter. Another company packed with nothingness.....

Would never own the shares but very happy to have ridiculously cheap business banking.
Posted at 02/11/2023 17:54 by smithie6 an investor in the banking sector

I expect banks to reduce the % paid on new 1 & 2 yr deposits....or to just stop offerring them completely !!

Due to the risk of losing money on them if the daily % rate falls during the 1 yr & 2 yr periods.

If banks were to do that then it should help share prices in the banking sector. ;-)


Ah, and of course, if the interest rate paid on 1 yr & 2 yr deposits falls (& the % paid on gilts also falls) then equities become a bit more attractive to investors relative to gilts. If supply/demand changes then share prices change. (NAT West shares rose ~5p today, without blinking).

Nat West shares were ~300p last year, with the 9 month profit of £2.3 bln, versus £3.3 bln this yr. My guess is that the NWG share price will rise.

Always great to note the “Director Purchases” RNS here today afternoon, nice, and GLA!

Over the last three years on average, NatWest’s EPS has increased by 70% per year. But its share price has only increased by an average 11% per year over that period.

The bank looks significantly undervalued to its peers on the key metric of the price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio.

NatWest’s is just 3.5, while Barclays’ is 3.6, Lloyds’ is 3.9, HSBC Holdings’ is 5.9, and Standard Chartered’s is 10.8. This gives a UK bank peer group average of 6.05.

It looks even more undervalued against the European bank peer group P/E average of 7.7.

To gauge the level of undervaluation, I use the discounted cash flow (DCF) method, using several analysts’ DCF valuations as well as my own.

The core assessments for NatWest are now between around 72% and 78% undervalued. The lowest of these would give a fair value per share of about £6.50 per share, compared to £1.82 now.

In 2022, NatWest paid a Special Dividend of 16.8p, which gives a yield of 17% based on the current share price. Crucially though, even if this Special Dividend is not included in the calculation, the yield is still 7.4%.

So, a £10,000 investment would make another £7,400 in passive income over 10 years if the yield and the share price stayed the same (which is not guaranteed). This is over and above share price gains or losses and tax obligations incurred.

NatWest increased its 2023 interim payment by 57% — from 3.5p to 5.5p. If this was applied to this year’s final dividend, then the total would be 21.2p. This would give an 11.6% yield, with no Special Dividend included, based on the current share price.

Not sure if I agree ....since giving bonuses for the share price encourages dirs to issue rubbery accounts/RNSs & phps blue sky claims of future profits ..

....there do need to be better rules for bonuses, or any rules at all !!

Was it at Persimmon that there was a big scandal when the boss got tens of millions, & the fact that house & land prices were high & had risen & lots of demand had nothing to do with him !!

& then that boss left !!
Bonuses should tie any good director in to the company, not encourage them to leave !!

..with Alison Rose gone the NatWest Banking group can perhaps return to being a bank & stop it's drift towards being partly a NGO charity/venture.

imo it is the job of the state to receive taxes from businesses such as NWG & use them to support students & other sectors of society.

Example. the NWG gave £100k to help fund 500 students in a specific sector.

Completely irrelevant spend by NWG. And an irrelevant amount of money imo to give to the student sector which has a turnover in Europe of billions.
imo NWG only did it so that the dirs. (especially Alison Rose ?) could score some brownie points & personal kudos.

imo this bank should stick to banking & leave social services to be run by the Govt.

..I disagree about where you think the share price headed, you said ~150p

...the numbers will always get you in the end

too cheap imo
..while the weak FTSE & weak USA mkts does not help the NWG share price

This share buyback scheme is a friggin SCAM.

All banks doing buybacks for 2 years now and spending Billions of dividends monies only have falling share prices...

Total opposite effect than what the CEO's sell you...

The Brokers are given a huge amount of funds that they then use to "weight" the sell side of the order book. Pushing prices down and slowly buying up stock.

So they get more stock to cancel but leave the share price 15% lower on average which then struggles to recover...

Just pay double dividends which will draw in buyers and push prices up... imho
