|What got under these today.|
|XD for 58p today but the price hasn't moved, the market seems to be sleeping on this one.|
|The EMS on this is extremely low, quoted as 150 on my brokers, fewer than 10 positions are open at IG (and Im one of them).
I'm guessing that the stagnant share price is partly down to insufficient numbers of shares for institutional investors to bother with, which is what it takes to kick start a share price these days. Possibly combined with a high percentage of share ownership with early investors sitting on shares.
In comparison, Shawbrook and OneSavings, two other major challenger banks have in the order of 10 times the shares in circulation, and a tenth of the share price.
(over all they are 2 to 3 times the size in market cap)
Cant help feeling a share split might help light the blue touch paper STB needs for this to finally take off. 5 to 1 should do it, that and a decent tip in the press.|
|Yes, bizarre, very unloved at present.
Just keep buying, the market will wake up in the end, and the divis will keep rolling in!

|I do not get why the share price is so inert, its been on a slow decline with no bad news over recent weeks, and today posted what appears to be very positive results, and increased dividend, and the share price has barely moved a point either way.|
|Sorry meant to post on Shawbrook but still be interested in views.|
|I do not hold shares here but am about to switch banks.
Any of you informed people any comments about which would be best as a CUSTOMER here or Clydesdale?
The latter have some charges and some free accounts.|
|Recent drop with no obvious reason for it, so I've topped up.|
|They are a very solid bank. Interesting comments on unsecured lending. Definitely the challenger bank to back in my view along with Arbuthnot. May be dull, but you won't have a permanent loss of capital risk.|
|"The combined effects of the performance of the continuing operations in and the one off profit arising from the sale of Everyday Loans means that 2016 is expected to be the tenth successive year when the return on required equity is in the region of 30%"
Undervalued, but 2017 looks promising for STB.|
|Wait a minute, EDL sold... Is not that they made their profits. Where are going to make their money from now?|
|Looking at the interim figures out earlier this month.
Interim underlying profit pre-tax was £17.4M up 54% giving earnings of 78.5P.
With further progress expected in H2 the full year could reach £40M profit which would work through to about 180P of earnings.
The shares were around £30 not long ago , which might have been on the high side , but at 2070P currently 11.5 times profits , they certainly still look good value.
At 15 times earnings we would be looking at 2700P as a possibe target
DYOR - just my rough calculations|
|They do not believe that they can offer an account that is value for money given that they charge £12.50 a month.
Ouch! I have to say, I think I would prefer to rely on a "mainstream bank".|
|Hope the share price will go back up to £24 - pre-Brexit level.|
|Excellent results today.|
|I've bought some today after failing to get a buy away on Friday. A very solid bank with a 50% off sale price. Reasonably baffled by struggling to get a buy on Friday and then having to pay £18 today. Long-term still a good buy at this level though.|
|in response to above .... this from a web search on the issue ... naiSecure Trust are closing current accounts from 120916 in response to the basic accounts that have been launched by main stream providers since January 2016.They do not believe that they can offer an account that is value for money given that they charge £12.50 a month.A pity - the system worked and you did not have to rely on a mainstream bank.|

Questor says BUY
|Oh dear ! That's bit scary.I think all the fundamentals are better in Brexit scenario than what we have in 2008 during financial crisis.So hopefully it shouldn't fall further unless I am missing something.|
|I have an account with STB and have found them to be reasonably good at what they do. However I received a letter from them last week telling me that my account will be closed in a couple of months and they told me to make alternative arrangements. Strange.|
|Apart from going Ex Div., the share price is continuously falling in the absence of any RNS.Any clue anyone !!!|
|Apart from going Ex Div., the so is continuously falling in the absence of any RNS.Any clue anyone !!!|
|This has a forecast profits growth of over 30% for the next 2 years and is paying a whopping divi next week yet is out of favour and has dropped heavily recently.
Can't see any obvious reason for this.|
