New share buyback scam showing zero support for the share price as usual... weighting the sell side again no doubt... £150M of shareholder funds making Goldman Sucks a nice commission...

sometimes the level of divi is maintained just to stop share price falling PJ84 . So VMUK acted sensibly from that viewpoint but bad debt news in your link is a concern and banks are too greedy for their own good with very high credit card interest rate perhaps part of the problem with the defaults!

Although the news yesterday was disappointing, I would have hung on if the dividend had been maintained and although Peel Hunt regards the total return to shareholders as a total yield of more than 10% I am not a fan of how routine buybacks appear to have become and have decided to sell and move on.

"Peel Hunt: Virgin Money upgrades unlikely

Upgrades are unlikely at Virgin Money (VMUK) in the near term as it deals with falling profit and financial crime costs, says Peel Hunt.

Analyst Robert Sage reiterated his ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of 243p on the Citywire Elite Companies A-rated bank, which was trading at 147p on Thursday.

The group reported underlying profit of £593m for the year to end of September, down on the £776m reported last year and 5% lower than consensus forecasts due to costs and impairments.

‘Virgin Money disclosed new £130m financial crime costs over the coming three years, which is material to the cost base’ said Sage, although he added solvency was stronger than expected and capital distributions point to a more than 10% yield.

‘Attaining a double-digit statutory return on tangible equity has been delayed by financial crime costs and the company now expects it to be realised in the full-year 2025-28 cycle.’

While Sage said capital returns are attractive, ‘growth is currently lacking and forecasts might decline in the short term’.

‘Long-term we see considerable value in the franchise,’ he said."

Over the past 3 years - every time a UK bank starts a buy back scam -- the share price tanks. Day 1 the Investment bank IB buys loads of shares and the price climbs a little. From day 2 onwards the IB uses that stock to "weight" the order book on the sell side. Drags down the price over a few nmonths. They buy more stock back at cheaper prices and make their bonus but leave the share price down 20% when they complete. Oh yes there is maybe a few % less stock on the market. Doesn't mean much when the price fell 20% for it...

Look at LLoyds. Pre covid 58p share price Since then record profits every year, reduced overheads and they have bought back and written off 8% of issued shares. Current share price = 42p (after hitting 39 recently)...

Natwest / Barclays etc --- all the same.

The EPS looks better for the CEO but shareholders are getting shafted... The Board don't mind their shares being worth a little less because they get them for free anyway...

It could be from anything up to 2.99% to 14% but it is substantial and far greater than any recent trades so will be interesting to see who has sold and could be an off market trade.

It could be a prelude to taking it private again but at 14% still some way to go and could just be taking advantage of the current share price and will be interesting to see what happens next week.

Sp - the article you refer to was published in The Times and I heartily concur with
the sentiments contained therein. I have yet to see any research which shows that shares buyback benefits the private investor shareholder, with increased share price.
The dividend (if one is being paid) following the buyback would probably be an amount paid whether there had been a buyback or not.

well it goes to show share buy backs dont make any money or increase the share price. Simple way is give me the money via a divvi and I will put it to better use.
Only ones who make out of this are the brokers handling the share buy back

Down already to 165... Citigroup Global Markets Limited really using all their dirty tricks to shaft shareholders with their own dividend monies...

What amazes me is that CEO's don't care that share prices get shafted with Buyback SCAMs --- Oh I mean Scheme's. Times really have changed. The share price level used to be what either kept a CEO his job or the sack. Bring back those times :-)

Have you noticed that since the SHARE BUYBACK SCAM started again the share price has done nothing but fall! Was 182 and now 169 in just a week...

Share buybacks are a scam. The Brokers use the large monies (half your dividend) to weight the sell side of the order book. Drive prices down to buy cheap. Illegal activity but the FCA are useless. Happens on every banking share.

So yes they write off a few extra shares but they damage the share price and leave the company value much lower than the extra shares gained.

CEO's should be clear to the house Broker that buying on the open market goal is to increase the share price and company value or get sacked OR the CEO's need to go because they have lost touch with their priority --- company value / share price and dividend returns.

must take all that with a pinch of salt unfortunately . The share price is where it is because the market thinks it should be there . It was October 2018 when the share price was double the present price
