buywell3: By Xmas 2020 -- have patience BARC results have set the tone for Banks IMO albeit buywell does not agree that things are going to improve going forwards into Covid-wave 2 and 1M new cases worldwide every 4 days. ======== LLOY and Banks and Markets and GOLD ======= If you look back buywell has said 20p for a few months now Several months back when LLOY was circa 60p to 68p and they were carrying on a large buyback program of many Billions of pounds using shareholders monies . buywell was critical of that program and predicted 30p would come when it stopped. This is now the case with FED stimulus in the USA They have created a monster market in the face of a Covid-19 pandemic. A monster which must be fed ever bigger meals to keep it alive as it grows. Another $ 2 Trillion now hangs in the balance ( days) to add to the $7 Trillion already spent/agreed . The $ has tanked nearly 9% in the face of such FED actions and GOLD has surged to Historical highs. Another $2 Trillion should IMO tank the $ another several per cent and send POG higher still IMO. Will investors now increasingly leave the main markets and invest in precious metals ? IMO some have done so already and it has been FED stimulus that has been sending Main markets and POG higher at the same time . This is not the usual case IMO so we have a disconnect situation indicating the markets are in a stressed / bubble state. All IMO dyor
buywell2: ...... The UK High St Banking System is F C U K E D ...... And not just the UK either I'm afraid. The demise of the High St Bank has arrived and the Banks have bought it upon themselves in part by shedding staff and bank closures , plus paying savers next to nothing interest wise , and providing a very poor customer experience together with various forms of miss- selling = Rip Offs. The NAILS in the Banks coffin come in the form of the FAANG stocks(Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Alphabet's Google) plus a few others. These companies are going to chance the face of GLOBAL BANKING as we know it by offering their own forms of Crypto Currencies. Other companies that are likley to do the same thing include Ali Baba , Twitter and Walmart plus a few combines that will emerge. Paper currency is now under threat as the Banks and Authorities and Countries try to pump up the bubble another time by cutting interest rates and printing money. The USA Stockmarket has just reached historical/hysterical all time highs because the FED indicated it will do what is needed to keep things going along nicely ie FED moves = dropping rates and printing money = debt rising some more. The money well I would argue can only be visited so many times and rates can only go to zero before helicopter money kicks in ie cash for nothing so folks keep spending. POG is moving up and $1350 resistance has been broken ... this IMO means that SOME investors are now going for safety as they think the interst rate/money printing game is up ... IMO regarding POG , this is an indication of what is coming down the road for the next 12 months. As TRUST in the value of paper money evaporates and POG rises , so to with the emergence of various forms of Crypto Currencies issued by MEGA rich companies that have loads of cash and do not need Banks themselves. Companies that sell their products on-line and do not need High St presence. The failure of most High St Retailers is also another symptom/clue of what is coming. Bank shares have been under-performing for many years now. Many Banks went under after the credit crunch or got acquired when they were in trouble eg: Northern Rock Bradford and Bingley Abbey National Alliance and Leicester Things have not got better The world's debt pile is hovering near a record at $244 trillion, which is more than three times the size of the global economy, according to an analysis by the Institute of International Finance acrried out on 15th Jan 2019. buywell thinks this is now worse hTtps:// and is getting worse with every passing week JUNE 19, 2019 Flood of debt instruments backed by property loans hits market hTtps:// Markets are IMO running on fumes and fear. The end is nigh IMO dyor
buywell3: The USA is in deep doodo re its $22 Trillion debt pile Over the 12-month period ended October 31 2018, the US gross national debt rose by $1.26 trillion, to $21.7 trillion. Here’s who bought or shed this paper over those 12 months: Foreign holders (official and private-sector) shed $125 billion, whittling down their stake to $6.2 trillion, or to 28.6% of the total US national debt. US government entities (pension funds, Social Security, etc.) increased their holdings by $168 billion to 5.9 trillion. This “debt held internally” is owed the beneficiaries of those funds; it’s their money, invested in Treasury debt, and the US government owes every dime of it. They now hold 27.0% of the total US national debt. The Federal Reserve shed $190 billion over the 12 months through October as part of its QE Unwind, reducing its pile to $2.27 trillion by the end of October, or to 10.5% of the total US national debt. American institutions and individual investors increased their holdings by $1.41 trillion, directly and indirectly, through bond funds, pension funds, and other ways. Banks are very large holders of Treasury debt. Together, all these entities combined owned the remainder, $7.37 trillion, or 34% of the total US debt.

qantas: 82% CFD Have lost money. New rules to help protect investors using financial spread betting - in which 82% have lost money - have been proposed by the financial watchdog. The Financial Conduct Authority wants to tackle the "contract for difference" (CFD) market, which includes financial spread betting. It fears that retail customers are using products they do not understand. The CFD market offers the opportunity to speculate on a shift in the market without owning the underlying asset. The FCA is proposing measures to limit the risks of CFD products and ensure that customers are better informed. "We have serious concerns that an increasing number of retail clients are trading in CFD products without an adequate understanding of the risks involved, and as a result can incur rapid, large and unexpected losses," said Christopher Woolard, the FCA's executive director of strategy and competition. Analysis Image copyright AFP/Getty Images Image caption Plus 500 are one of Atletico Madrid's sponsors Simon Gompertz, BBC personal finance correspondent Some 125,000 small investors are active in betting on movements in shares and currencies rather than buying the underlying investment. Spread betting firms are relentless in recruiting them, by blazoning their brands on football shirts, on public transport and in free newspapers. The internet has made dealing and advertising much easier. The companies pay to feature prominently on internet search engines and advertise on social media. A handful of players dominate in the UK, but 96 are authorised and another 130 promote their online trading from elsewhere in Europe, mostly from Cyprus. Losses can be instantaneous, with little chance of recovery, because they allow people to take big risks with small stakes. It means that a small movement in the price of shares can result in the security deposit an investor has put up - the margin - being wiped out. These complex investments are often sold to ordinary investors online. The potential losses or gains can be much larger than from traditional trading as an investor can hold a trading position representing a much higher value than the size of the stake invested. The FCA's analysis found that 82% of clients lost money on such products. The average among clients checked by the watchdog was a loss of £2,200 a year. Its plans include: Standardised risk warnings given to customers Proportion of winners and losers on products published by providers Capping the proportion of "borrowed" funds that can be used for trading by inexperienced retail clients Preventing providers from using any form of trading or account opening bonuses or benefits to promote CFD products Consultation on the plans is open until March, with a further statement expected from the FCA in the spring. Immediate impact Shares in firms offering these services were hit hard following the announcement. CMC Markets and IG Group were the biggest fallers on the FTSE 250, both down about 30% in morning trading. Plus 500, which also saw its share price fall, said the FCA's plans would have "a material, operational and financial impact on the UK regulated subsidiary". This represents about 20% of its global business. IG Group said that it recognised there were "shortcomings in the approach to the marketing of CFDs" by certain firms, often operating from outside the UK. "Certain of the FCA proposals could enhance client outcomes," it added. "However, the FCA's proposals do not appear to directly apply to firms operating from outside the UK offering CFDs and binaries to clients in the UK on a cross-border services passport from another EU member state. "IG will carefully consider the implications of the FCA consultation paper." CMC said it had consistently focused on higher-value experienced premium clients who understood the markets and products they were trading.

3rd eye: Standard Chartered : We have launched an exclusive investment opportunity for high net worth clients 03/03/2016 | 06:58am US/Eastern Standard Chartered announced the launch of its Pegasus Series programme, which offers private banking clients an exclusive opportunity to invest in leading private investment funds. With rising volatility in the investment landscape, high net worth investors who are able to take a long-term view are looking to private equity as an alternative asset class to diversify their portfolio for higher returns. Anna Marrs, CEO, Commercial & Private Banking, Standard Chartered Bank said: 'Over the last two to three years, we have seen growing interest among our clients - particularly family offices across Asia - in private equity as it becomes increasingly challenging to earn a decent yield from the public markets in today's low-interest rates environment.' This programme also offers investors the opportunity to gain exposure to industries and other asset classes that may be difficult to access on an individual basis. 'Not only are we able to provide this access at a substantially lower investment point, our clients can also leverage our partnerships with best-in-class managers to capitalise on opportunities that typically require a complex knowledge of the market,' noted Stanley Sia, Head, Private Equity & Real Estate, Group Wealth Management, Standard Chartered Bank. Anna Marrs added: 'This is part of a phased approach through which we offer our private banking clients a series of unique, customised and exclusive offerings to remain relevant to their needs. Particularly for the entrepreneurs across our footprint who are pre-disposed to external volatility through their businesses, we see this as a value-added solution to help them successfully diversify and grow their investment portfolio.'

mj19: 11HEARD ON THE STREETStandard Chartered: Why This Cheap Bank Stock Isn't a BargainThe bank's revenues are falling faster than expected, which makes it hard to find valueThe entrance to the headquarters of Standard Chartered in London. On Tuesday the emerging-markets focused bank reported its first full-year loss since 1989. ENLARGEThe entrance to the headquarters of Standard Chartered in London. On Tuesday the emerging-markets focused bank reported its first full-year loss since 1989. PHOTO: CHRIS RATCLIFFE/BLOOMBERG NEWSBy PAUL J. DAVIESFeb. 23, 2016 8:41 a.m. ET0 COMMENTSStandard Chartered chief Bill Winters is still knee-deep in his Augean task of cleaning out the "fertilizer," as he put it, from the bank's stables.Trouble is that, while the group has been shoveling the muck, business has been dwindling or walking by. Standard Chartered is answering many fears about its balance sheet. But revenues at the end of last year fell more than anyone was expecting and its book value per share shrank more rapidly, too.Granted, Standard Chartered's battered stock is cheap, but it is not yet cheap enough.Revenues for the second half of 2015 reported on Tuesday were 6% below forecasts and almost 20% below the first half. With charges for loans losses and restructuring, this pushed the emerging-markets focused bank into its first full-year loss since 1989. It lost $2.4 billion after tax and won't pay a final dividend.Mr. Winters biggest challenge is to arrest this slide in activity in the face of the poor-and worsening-conditions for banking in general. Not one business unit improved its top line in 2015.ENLARGEThe banks says it is now back open for business. It has cut back much of the commodities exposures that worried investors 18 months ago and completed its $5 billion rights issue. And more than half the proceeds survived the restructuring charges.However, the risk of large losses from bad credits isn't yet gone. Almost $1 billion of a $1.8 billion restructuring charge in the final quarter was due to provisions for losses on the sale of risky loans and other assets the bank no longer wants.And those sales are yet to be completed. Meanwhile, the loans involved are only 47% covered by provisions, which is less than the 62% level for nonperforming loans across the rest of the firm. If the loans to be sold eventually take charges equal to those remaining, it would cost Standard Chartered another roughly $1 billion.In theory, this should be covered by the bank's $3 billion restructuring budget. Unfortunately, bad loans have continued to rise across the rest of the bank and emerging economies continue to slow.The bank ended the year well capitalized, with a common equity tier one ratio of 12.6%. Still, the charges and losses to come alongside the shrinking top line means the bank will be fighting to stand still on this.Key for investors is that book value per share is getting hit. It came in almost 10% below consensus forecasts at the end of 2015 and was already expected to shrink further this year. Cutting 2016 book value forecasts by 10% would put Standard Chartered stock on a multiple of 0.44 times. That would be at a premium to Deutsche Bank, UniCredit and a string of other troubled European lenders.Given the battles ahead, it is still tough to see the value in Standard Chartered.Write to Paul J.

ali47fish: i am entiteled to 56 nilpaid shares which is a pittance. should i accept? hl on balace thinks so? any enlightenment would be welcome in the meantime this waht hl thinks Our view: Standard Chartered are holding a gun to their investors' heads with this rights issue. The discount is large and the theoretical ex-rights price far below the pre-announcement closing price. Holders who do not take up their rights face big dilution. Some though may well look at the run-rate of impairment charges currently racking up and decide that the rights issue will be good money after bad. Standard Chartered is now a bank with strong emerging market exposures, at a time when the emerging markets are not strong. The stock was trading far below tangible book value (TNBV) of $15.86 but given returns were only 5% or so, that was hardly surprising. That tangible NAV will be diluted by the issue; we estimate a post-rights TNBV of around $13.93, or just over 900p. So the rights is being struck at around half of the new book value and the current market price is a substantial discount to TNBV also. The question is, can those $2.9bn per annum of cost savings make it through to the bottom line, or will they be competed away, or swallowed up by bad debt charges? The latter are coming in thick and fast, but perhaps Mr Winters has insisted on a kitchen sink approach to provisioning. The new strategy is a big back-pedalling from the previous direction. Gone is the approach of getting in close, with an open chequebook, to the key industrial families of South East Asia in an attempt to become their primary commercial and investment banking partner. Instead, Standard Chartered is focusing more on establishing strong private banking relationships with the wealthier citizens of the emerging markets. Done well, private banking is a great business. Ask the Swiss. It offers potentially steady returns with limited risk, because lending tends to be well secured, because the clients are rich. Whether Mr Winters can pull it off remains to be seen, but he has the network and the brand necessary to make a go of it. In the long run, Standard Chartered's emerging market bias could be a huge positive. Right now though, China and India are more of a worry than a blessing and investors will need patience to see them through what could be quite a lengthy turnaround process. If the bank can hit the 10% Return on Equity target, and pay out half of earnings as dividend, then an attractive dividend yield may one day be possible, given the shares are trading far below book value. Getting there will be easier said than done, however.
