leedskier: What of the 80p RBS share price you were promising?
smartie6: Patience. Things will change as pressure mounts on the government. We will start to ramp up testing. To ease the bottleneck of cash getting to businesses the government will provide further direct stimulus and support packages. They have continued to say that a business will not fail on health issues alone. Direct access to cash will ease the burden on banks, default rates will be minor, and ratings will improve significantly when reassessment of capital and balance sheet health is recognised. A significant increase in share price will mean the dividend cut will be forgotten in time.
cfc1: what really is annoying for RBS Share Holders is Ms Rose decided to postpone dividend AFTER xdiv dates. Many (including me) invested back into RBS to take advantage of a smashed share price and great divi - seems criminal to me!
smartie6: I believe that RBS will do the right thing and cancel, however the share price will take a large hit.
smartie6: Feels to me that RBS are playing a politics by not making the right decision now. May mislead the shareholders and impact the share price heavily at a time when the share has fallen and cannot absorb a further 30% fall I.e. taking it well below 80p.
smartie6: Anyone have odds on the dividend being pulled in the next few days? I have this at 80:20 (DYOR). Stronger chance given Govt owned. My worry is if pulled you’re looking at a share price of 80p. Had the feeling this was pushed higher this morning to pull in the zombie punter before large fall.
polar fox: Update from IG this afternoon - my own view is that Rose may be tempted to 'kitchen sink' her first Results RNS, which could mean it disappoints a touch. In addition to all the usual detail, I'll also be watching to see whether the total 2019 dividend consensus is met; a lot will probably depend on how promising her forward-looking comments are: Royal Bank Of Scotland(RBS) will deliver its full-year results on Valentine’s Day (14 February), with analysts from Credit Suisse initiating their coverage of the stock with fondness, offering the lender an ‘outperform217; rating. Credit Suisse also issued a price target for RBS of 260p, which based on the stock trading at 222p as of 14:00 (GMT) on Tuesday, implies a potential upside of 17.1%. The news will be welcomed by RBS, with the bank getting off to a poor start in 2020, with the stock down 9% year-to-date, underperforming the broader market. UBS remain neutral ahead of full-year results Analysts from UBS were less upbeat about RBS’ share price, reiterating their ‘neutral’; rating for the stock in February and issuing a price target of 230p Meanwhile, analysts from Barclays Capital downgraded RBS from ‘equalweight’ to ‘underweight’ in January, though opted to leave their target price for the stock unchanged at 225p. Based on where RBS is currently trading, Barclays Capital believe that the stock is valued appropriately, though their rating suggests investors should consider reducing their holdings in the company. Barclays said that its rationale for the downgrade is due to the bank continuing to see net interest margin pressure, with the restructuring efforts to support underperforming NatWest Markets and Ulster units likely to take time before bearing fruit. ‘RBS has been sustaining high returns in recent years; however, our analysis suggests net interest margin headwinds are under-appreciated (particularly if the Bank of England cuts the base rate on January 30th) and RWA inflation will also likely drag,’ Barclays Capital said in a note. RBS no longer plagued by PPI RBS’ newly appointed CEO Alison Rose will be hoping to deliver a strong set of full-year results on Friday - her first since taking the helm. Thankfully for the new CEO she will no longer be plagued by payment protection insurance (PPI) charges, which have weighed on the bank’s profits, with the deadline for claims passing last summer. Brexit uncertainty, though not completely over, has reduced significantly since the Conservative Party secured a landslide victory in the UK general election last December, giving RBS and its peers a degree of clarity over the country’s future relationship with Europe. However, investors are eager for an update on RBS’ underperforming businesses like Ulster and NatWest Markets, as well as details on its new digital bank Bó. unquote
delphiman: So why is rbs going up, election ? well conservatives do look good and so it wont be sold off if they win but the economy is on the edge of a cliff, we only just narrowly managed to escape a recession and the turmoil after brexit will be awful, so I dont get why there is any value in finance shares until the turmoil has passed, and rbs is not the same beast it was before so thinking the share price will resume to where it was at, it just wont happen even rbs has said that themselves as they complain about been compared to the old rbs. I struggle to get optimism before brexit and the explosion of it settles, and that will be a further few years.
3rd eye: RBS share price could rise by over 90%, says Broker Jefferies “High levels” of capital repatriation are seen supporting share price momentum at RBS and Lloyds, the analysts said. Shares in Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC (LON:RBS) could rise by over 90% according to a new assessment on UK banks from analysts at Jefferies. In a note on Monday, the US investment bank, which rates RBS at a ‘buy’ with a 418p target price, said they expected mortgage loan growth to accelerate in the fourth quarter of this year. Net interest margin, the amount a bank earns in interest compared to interest paid out to lenders, was predicted to ease off at RBC in the back end of the current year, but Jefferies saw scope for it to “rise modestly” in 2020, driven by a shift towards UK retail banking “High levels” of capital repatriation, when a company’s offshore assets are converted back into its domestic currency, is also seen support share price momentum at RBS and Lloyds Banking Group PLC (LON:LLOY), the analysts said, with RBS predicted to repatriate 41% of its current market cap by the end of 2021 and Lloyds 30%. RBS is also predicted to benefit from a fall in the cost of equity, the amount the bank pays to its shareholders to compensate for their investment risk, by 10% over the coming months, giving it an extra “valuation uplift” that makes it “top of the pecking order” among the UK banks in Jefferies' coverage.

polar fox: Forbes has some more interesting analysis from Trefis in Boston: Selling RBS Stake Could Cost U.K. Government Over £11 Billion U.K. Financial Investments Limited, which was set up by the U.K. government in 2008 to oversee the bailout investment in the Royal Bank of Scotland Group and the Lloyds Group, recently reaffirmed its plan to sell £3 billion worth of RBS shares by the end of March 2019. This announcement makes it increasingly likely that the U.K. government will go through with its larger plan of selling a chunk of its stake in RBS worth £3 billion in each of the next five years. This is good news for the British banking giant, which has been struggling to return to the private sector since its £45.5 billion bailout in late 2008. But how long will it take for the UKFI to work its way through all its stake in RBS? And is there any hope of the British government recovering all of the initial taxpayer money? We created a detailed, interactive dashboard for RBS in an attempt to answer these questions using forecasts for just two primary input parameters – the expected annual stake sale value and expected growth in RBS’s share price. Based on the dashboard, we believe that the stake sale will be completed in 2023, with the net loss incurred by British taxpayers being around £11.3 billion (almost 25% of the initial investment, ignoring the impact of inflation). Notably, this is in sharp contrast to the UKFI’s sale of its stake in Lloyds, which was completed successfully last year at a nominal profit. But it must be noted here that the Lloyds bailout was much smaller (£20.3 billion), and also that Lloyds’ shares recovered to well above the bailout figure of 73.6 pence a share over 2014-15. On the other hand, RBS’s shares have traded largely around 250-350 pence over recent years – well below the bailout figure of a little over 500 pence. RBS Has Come A Long Way, But Can’t Match The Profits Of Its Former Self RBS has faced a long list of setbacks on its path to re-privatization over the last decade. The bank reported an annual loss for each year over the nine-year period from 2008-16, even as it worked on reorganizing its once-diversified business model towards retail and commercial banking services in the U.K. and clearing its huge backlog of legacy legal issues. The bank reported its first annual profit in 2017, but with the U.S. mortgage-related lawsuit yet to be settled, it is staring at another potentially huge loss for the current year. But there is no denying the fact that aside from the impending multi-billion dollar settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ), things are looking up for the smaller, more efficient RBS. That said, RBS’s current size and business model cannot generate returns at the levels needed to justify a valuation anywhere near its bailout level. This is very likely what triggered the British government’s decision to begin selling its stake at a sizable rate over the next five years. So How Will The Stake Scale Pan Out? Due to a sharp decline in RBS’s share price since the bailout, the UKFI has sold RBS shares on just one occasion in the past – when it sold £2 billion worth of shares in 2015. But the U.K. government intends to sell £3 billion worth of its stake in RBS in the fiscal year 2018, and to also dispose of £3 billion worth of shares each year over 2019-22. Given this plan, it seems likely that it will continue to reduce its stake in RBS by £3 billion each year beyond 2023 too. With the actual number of shares sold by UKFI depending on the average price of RBS’s shares in a year, we also forecast the change in RBS’s share price over coming years. As shown in the chart below, RBS’s share price has largely increased by ~5% annually over recent years after tanking from over £5 in late 2009 to just £2.23 at the end of 2014. Accordingly, an annual growth rate of 5% over coming years looks appropriate for our analysis. Based on the two assumptions as detailed above, we estimate that the U.K. government’s stake in RBS will decline from around 71.2% now to below 20% by the end of 2023, before eventually falling to zero by 2026. Finally, this leads us to our projections for the U.K. government’s effective loss over coming years. It includes the realized losses from actual stake sales, and any unrealized losses at the end of a year for the remaining holdings. Note that our calculations include the £5.6 billion in payments and special dividend received by the government from RBS. unquote It's going to be a long day's night!
