the word 'retained' shouldn't have been used. I make the first half pre tax profit of £2.5 bn equal to about earnings of 3.5p per share

Hi LTI: 'Level of retained earnings will be about 4p per share without an acquisition". Retained earnings are after tax, by definition...a c£2.5bn pre-tax figure led to 2.0p EPS at the 2017 1/2 year end. All as stated in the 1/2 year results details on Lloyds' website. Bank levy needs to be added as well in Q4...ATB, Scfc

My £3.5 billion second half earnings figure is after allowing £1 billion of provisions, so 4.5 before

Earnings Per Share (EPS) can be calculated using two different methods, Basic and fully Diluted ( EPS). For the ordinary investor it is the fully Diluted ( EPS) is what really counts when trying to work out a Company's true and accurate earning figures.

Dividend
7 Aug '17
All this talk about dividends has definitely got my attention - perhaps I should invest some of the proceeds from last weeks property sales. You never know I might be on a role, but I think that now may very well be a good time to consolidate as three of our most prominent hoteliers have done - they are now almost entirely in cash - with all the debt removed from their remaining business.

Will watch for a bit and see what develops over the next couple of weeks - just like shares - currencies go up as well as down.

The Euro seems to be gaining every day.

Good luck all.

No chance, LTI - I think you've firstly forgotten about tax (as we are talking about retained earnings) and the year end bank levy which is provided for in Q4, so even before any other conduct provisions even £3.5bn would not leave anywhere near a 4p retained earnings after dividends are paid!

Half year profits were £2.5 billion. I am suggesting £3.5 billion in the second half give a total of £6 billion which equates to 8p per share
