I will follow with interest your £2.45 and I am sure you will come out a winner !! I must admit the stress and highs and lows eventually got to me I got out with a good profit but as always I nearly stuck . I would get back into Barclays but not at current SP so hopefully you will not see me back as I want people invested to win and not experience what we both experienced . I was down masively when we hit £2.02 and purchased more to bring average down thankfully I did thus I was able to get out with a profit. When we had no real bounce after results and no dividend increase it realy Pi@@@@ me of and it was the straw that broke the camels back. Wishing you the very best of luck and fingers crossed a rapid move North thus giving you a decent profit. As always stay positive you deserve all the luck after staying so loyal. Keep Smilling
Are you back in ? like you I believe Barclays are massively undervalued but it's been the same for 19 months could I get back in ? Could I stand another 19 months of frustration I will be keeping my powder dry I think. Best Of Luck To All Keep Smilling
Great post I could not agree with you more !! I am out of all Shares now and will be keeping my powder dry until after the election like you pointed out if Labour win they are talking of breaking Banks up and implementing a levy every year which tends to make ones blood boil . Barclays had no tax payers help so why should they be levied every year it's a complete joke. I truly wish All Barclays Investors the Very Best Of Luck hopefully a Blue Day Tomorrow . Keep Smilling
Politicians will say anything to get in power.... Like previous Labour governments if they do win they will be in bed with the Banks ....
Honest with them looking into the window from the outside seeing George selling Black Horse shares and then announcing Tax Breaks here there and everyway... don't you think Ed Balls is a little green eyed ....
I bet if he get the chance he cannot wait to sell the true pot of gold share ....that's is RBS IMHO
Remember this saying DONT BITE THE HAND THAT WILL FEED YOU :-)
Nothing too clever deciding when to sell, must of got spooked by all the threats coming from the States as I sold before XD. Remember graceland saying they were going back to 1.80p or something but they didn't, goes to show how everyone is as clueless as everyone else. Been in and out of all the banks for years (foreign ones too BGEO BKIR), some since gaining windfalls....Only got RBS left now, sold 75% of them at 390p, should of sold the lot.
I think a canny invester should wait for the result of the election because if labour win the election they have promised to tax the banks and break them up, and one major investor who manages one and half billion pound funds has said if labour do win the election he will sell all banks he has in his portfolio. I think as the election draws near banking stocks could fall if labour are in the lead in the polls. The latest poll puts labour 4 points ahead it's to soon to draw any conclusion from this one poll and it could change as we get nearer the election, I hope to god they do change because I believe a labour government would be a disaster.
With the old Lady committed to low interest rates for the time being I see no better return around ?
Any canny over 55 will not be buying an Lamborghini but looking to undervalued stocks on the FTSE100
As I hear this buy to rent is not a good idea ..Landlords have nightmares with getting a good tenant most stop paying , boilers break down etc and costs to future to evict.. via the courts system and bailiffs costs can cost £1000s.
Barclays Bank PLC is the bargain of the century IMHO
