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.
chairman20: need to do some careful forward thinking Rights issue failing implies a share price sub-465p. That looks a real possibility. Issue being left with the underwriters means a lot of shares overhanging the market (even if the underwriters have pre-sold their allocations possibly by buying put options to 'hedge' their risk, has driven down the price there will still be the rump of the new shares looking for a long term buy level.) The process theoretically will drive the share price temporarily below its long term 'fair value' presenting a buying opportunity - but not yet. meanwhile the concensus trade would be to open a short position asap with say a 630p stop loss.
shahi1: At this rate, Stan share price will be at par with HSBC share price...and when that happens, Armageddon !
shawzie: Today's target - share price heading for 570p
peterbill: Standard Chartered set for near-term rebound Standard Chartered (STAN) has been upgraded on the prospect of a ‘near-term rebound’. Investec analyst Ian Gordon upgraded his recommendation from ‘hold’ to ‘buy’ but reduced the target price from 970p to 820p. The shares fell 2.8% to 673p yesterday. ‘We confess that we were surprised just how well the market initially appeared to react to new chief executive Bill Winters’ first ‘formal’ appearance on 5 August, holding on to a small results-day gain,’ he said. ‘We think the subsequent 27% five-week share price fall reflected recognition of 1) an awful Q2 2015 revenue performance, 2) an unpleasant outlook for revenues/impairments, 3) further deteriorating trends in China, commodities and FX, and 4) an apparent strategic void until Winters “sets out his stall” in December 2015.’ Gordon added: ‘We now believe Standard Chartered could enjoy a near-term rebound, we regard the case for the stock as somewhat speculative. We see much clearer upside for Virgin Money, RBS, HSBC, and even Lloyds and Barclays.’
bugle4: Why Now Is The Perfect Time To Buy These 4 Stocks: Standard Chartered PLC, Boohoo.Com PLC, Schroders plc And Meggitt plc However, the bank has a new, slimmed down management team which is likely to refresh its future strategy. And, while it performed well during the credit crunch, investor sentiment towards Standard Chartered has not been strong in recent months – as evidenced by a 12% fall in its share price in the last year. This, though, presents an opportunity to buy a well-capitalised bank with vast exposure to what remains a fast-growing region of the world. And, with a dividend yield of 4.6% and a price to book (P/B) ratio of just 0.86, it has a very wide margin of safety.
charleybrown: So the share price at close today was 1024.p up 9.5p on day, pos. due to the ex divi date is Thursday 12th March and record date is Friday 13th, buyers piling in to get the dividend of around 51.81 p as the record date is the date you must own the shares is and it takes normally 3 days for the settlement from buying the shares to actually owning them, i make the last day to purchase stan shares to be Tuesday the 10th of March ? so the share price is going to be held high up to then peaked today at 1034.p so if i am right and Tuesday is the last purchase day to get next dividend paid on the 14/5/2015 1. what do you estimate the price to be Tuesday ? 2. how much do you think the price will drop to after the record date ? and 3 what price do you think the share will settle at in April ? my answer/guess is 1. 1028.p 2. 995.00p 3. 1020.p so come on have a go and we will see who is nearest.

kiwi2007: LONDON- Standard Chartered STAN.LN +1.80% PLC is nearing deals to sell roughly a half-dozen units in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, as part of an effort to combat an emerging-markets slowdown and worries about the bank's financial health, according to people familiar with the deals. Standard Chartered is in advanced talks to sell Standard Chartered Savings Bank and Standard Chartered Capital in South Korea, according to these people. The bank also is preparing to make an announcement soon about having sold its Lebanese retail bank, these people said. It isn't clear who the buyers for the South Korean or Lebanese units will be. Other businesses on the block include Standard Chartered's Hong Kong consumer-finance outfit called PrimeCredit, its German consumer bank and its Swiss private bank, these people said. While the bank has headquarters in London, Standard Chartered generates 90% of its profit in Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The sales are the latest in an abrupt turn in fortunes for Standard Chartered. Until recently, the bank's emerging-markets focus helped it avoid the problems that have dogged many European banks and made it a darling of investors. But turbulence in many of Standard Chartered's markets has walloped its shares, which are down 31% over the past year due partly to concerns that the bank needs more capital to absorb potential losses. On Monday, Standard Chartered fell 1%, to £12.52 ($20.96), in London. On Wednesday, Standard Chartered is scheduled to report its 2013 results, which will mark the first time in a decade that its annual operating profit will have increased by less than the prior year. The businesses that Standard Chartered is selling are mostly small. The South Korean units have a combined book value of about $145 million but are expected to be sold at a discount, according to the people familiar with the deals. The Lebanese bank is valued at roughly $20 million. Standard Chartered's market capitalization, by contrast, is more than £30 billion. "The good news is that if management [wants] to build capital by sell-downs, hidden value exists," said Jason Napier, an analyst at Deutsche Bank. DBK.XE +1.58% He calculates that Standard Chartered from 1999 to 2011 made nearly three dozen acquisitions, many of which are now valued at more than their purchase prices. But shrinking is something new for the bank. Last November, as the bank's profits sputtered and its share price tanked, Chief Executive Peter Sands pledged to sharpen the bank's focus and stop wasting capital. The bank also has been pruning employees; its workforce shrank to 87,000 employees from 89,000 in 2013. Standard Chartered is "taking actions to adapt our strategy to the changing realities of the world in which we operate," Mr. Sands told analysts in January. The plan, he said, is to "deploy and concentrate our scarce resources-capital, liquidity, investment capacity, management time-behind the key geographies and businesses that offer the most potential for profitable growth." The bank rode a wave of foreign money and cheap credit pouring into Asia, the Middle East and Africa in the previous decade, but slower economic growth, rising bad loans and higher costs of doing business all hit the bank last year. Some purchases made in brighter times have gone sour, and Standard Chartered warned in December that operating profit for the year would be less than 2012's $6.8 billion. South Korea has been a particular headache for the bank, due at least in part to a government program allowing people to restructure debts. The bank wrote down the value of its business there by $1 billion in the first half of last year, and in December said it expects to post a full-year operating loss in the country of as much as $200 million. Some analysts said the bank may need to sell new stock this year to maintain its capital position, which for years was considered one of the strongest in the industry. Mr. Sands has said that won't be necessary and is betting the global economy will pick up and markets will be calmer this year. However, Credit Suisse CSGN.VX +2.02% analysts estimate that even if profits hold steady this year, the bank's ratio of equity to assets, one measure of the bank's capital strength, will start to lag behind rivals.
