Broadwood thanks for the post (No 49). I was shocked to see a 7% fall in one day (I think it was). Once I realised that the price had fallen to just below the placing price I bought some more. Its a shame this stopped out Malcome and it seems all a bit odd as it was expected so why the fall?

To be fair to Lloyds, they inherited SJP shares from Halifax so these shares were never meant to be in their long term plans (non core assets). Hopefully the placing will have the same effect as last time. Good luck all!

None required, Broadwood. The problem is, as ever, keeping track on all the information out there and it's easy to miss stuff from various announcements anyway. I have this one back on a watch list, of course, what's to stop Lloyds doing the same trick again?

Malcolm - apologies. Apparently Lloyds had entered into an agreement not to sell more shares within a specific timespan - which it apparently ignored.

Netted a few at the off. Expect them to recover gently over the next few weeks .although probably will still be a bit of weakness as those shares find their way back onto the market

Everyone should have known Lloyds was reducing its stake. Its not as though they havn't already indicated they would be doing so as one means of improving their own capital ratio as required by the regulator.

Broker snap: Panmure upbeat about St James's Place after Lloyds sale Thu 23 May 2013 Broker snap: Panmure upbeat about St James's Place after Lloyds sale LONDON (SHARECAST) - Shares in St James's Place (SJP) fell sharply on Thursday morning after Lloyds placed 77m shares in the wealth manager, but Panmure Gordon kept its 'buy' rating for the stock saying it still remains its top pick for 2013. Lloyds said the sale of a 15% stake follows the recent strong performance of SJP's share price and will improve SJP's liquidity by increasing its free float. Lloyds now owns just 21% of the company after cutting its stake in March. The placing was made at a price of 580p per share, some 9.3% lower than the closing price of 640p on Wednesday night. "As with the previous placing in March we view the latest placing as positive as it indicates that Lloyds is willing to further reduce its stake in SJP thus removing what we believe is an overhang on the SJP share price together with increasing the free float," said analyst Barrie Cornes. He said that improving equity markets will continue to help SJP grow its top line by 15-20% whilst the net asset value will also benefit from better investment markets. "We believe that the shares are likely to be under pressure in the very short term as a result of the placing, but believe that the anticipated weakness should be regarded as a buying opportunity." The target price for the shares has been lifted from 600p to 725p.

You're welcome, but if I am wrong then I am sure that someone will, and I do hope so, come along to correct me. There's three questions that I have which I would like someone to offer an opinion. 1. Why did Lloyds dispose of this amount of shares in one go? Were they under some form of obligation? 2. Given that the price was going up, was there not a demand for these or were they being ramped up as a 'feint'? 3. What do Lloyds intend to do with the remaining 110 million shares which is one and a half times what was dumped this morning?

Basically it was Lloyds who held a huge amount of the STJ's shares sold a significant chunk. " Further to its announcement on 22 May 2013 of its intention to sell shares in St James's Place plc ('St James's Place', or the 'Company'), Lloyds Banking Group plc ('Lloyds', or the 'Group') announces that 77 million shares have been placed at a price of GBP5.80 per share (the 'Placing'). The gross proceeds of the Placing are approximately GBP450 million. Settlement of the Placing will take place on 29 May 2013. On completion, Lloyds will hold 110 million St James's Place shares (approximately 21 per cent of the Company's issued share capital). " Yesterday the share price was 640 or thereabouts and then Lloyds disposed of 15% of STJ's holding that it held raising half a billion pounds. Clearly the market wasn't able to take up 77 million shares at 640 so the effect of the whole lot being dumped onto the market was that the price fell about 60p. Then on top of that the market decided to shave off over 2% from the FTSE in a not very positive day which basically knocked another 7p or thereabouts off the price. So, there you have it - two reasons for the fall in price; the general market hic-cup and Lloyd's dumping the share. Now, the next question is why wasn't the share picked up at all? I got out when my stops were triggered but now I am not sure if this share is poisoned by factors that I am not aware of so I will be wary about going back in which is a shame as it was treating me nicely until this morning.

A forgotten thread; shame. STJ will profit from the retail distribution review (RDR), with so many financial advisers deciding to quit, leaving orphaned clients, and so many more leaving the independent sector to join a restricted adviser who will look after the compliance for them: a double bonus for St. James Place. If you are reading this before the price has jumped much further than where it got to on 31 October 2012, buy in to this sure thing. Oh, I almost forgot: those advisers joining will be buying shares too, pushing the price up more.
