Chaz/Boner.

We're all a bit tired of your usual garbage. All year you hoped I'll fall under a pile of debt and yet i continue to make gains.

You are one of life's big losers.

You've lost all your money
Don't lose your sanity

Hi Ajok, trust you wrote that from a sunny Golf course, whilst ya partner was pitching sand towards the sky lol.
Think you are looking at the perfect strategy chap, both need to just sit tight now and see how this pans out.
240 would mean a new Sheep skin coat for Mrs Wolf.
Maybe even take her out for some lamb chops too.
Hopefully will not be long before I'm doing a Micky F' "Back in the game" lol
Its been over a decade since I was last able to open a Barclays trade with confidence of a decent wedge banked by mid morning, then a cheeky trade when the yanks woke up, usually they were placed in a wine bar or bear garden with mates, miss those days lol.
Regards W'

Morning J.B that post made a good read, though these are looking all to be factored in at the moment.
Think Goldman's got a little lucky with their negative views, makes one wonder if they didn't have issues with Jiz.
He did raise a smirk when I mentioned they had printed very low target price last may.
Be nice to see how Barc's perform in the run up to the finals. There has been some decent buys lumped on this past few weeks.
Got a few mates holding out some targets areas of 250 / 270.
Though personally I think others and myself will try a few small ones around 225 and go for some balance at 240+
It would be amazing if we get some positive news ref; divi and year end.
good luck with your positions, regards W'

Hate giving I.G good money, covered my protective shorts just shy of 199 after our open.
IMHO this could test 196 / 195 if other for unknown reasons other indices way in badly, though Barc's are looking very strong on the charting side these past few closes.
All said and done, I'm now finished shorting and happy to walk away now.
Yes as per usual there are others on this board who also know this share far too well, it has looked like a repeat performance of last years. Though this is the year funds will be hovering in the New Year for any chance of a low buy.
So we may encounter some un wanted shorts in the mid 220's.
Either way this looks ok until end of year results, then it worth sitting on the fence for a week or so.

We're all hoping this share price goes through the roof and your 1.97 short bankrupts you, leaving you unable to afford your internet bill going forward, and thus unable to post your utter nonsense on this BB.

Here's to hoping! Seriously though big jackflowers, where do you see this share price going before dropping like a stone? Just so we know when to sell out.

same pattern as last year

Looking forward to next year and opening an EVEN BIGGER SHORT late Jan just before results.

Same pattern repeating as before...the end of year rise peaking in Jan followed by the tumble and I predict the same.

Dow has risen from 15k to 24k in 2years and many analysts expect a healthy pull back to 20k in 2018....that would still represent a 2.5% overall rise. However for Barclays such a pull back will further burden the share price.

Ready to jump in in Jan2018

Stock of the day: is it time to short Barclays?

Its fair to say that Barclays has had a pretty horrible year. The stock is down around 11% since January and is still trading a good 14% lower than where it was 5 years ago. Any hopes of a meaningful sustained turnaround from this bank have been dashed time and time again through the year.

Furthermore, there isn’t even a high dividend yield to compensate investors for the disappointments. Barclays is the least loved of the UK banks right now, HSBC is seemingly going from strength to strength, optimism is returning to Lloyds and Royal Bank of Scotland has rallied over 25% through the course of the year. Global banking stocks (not just the UK) have rallied in 2017 and Barclays hasn’t.

Making matters worse, Goldman Sachs have confirmed their sell rating on the stock and have even included it on their “List of sell ideas for 2018”. Goldman’s highlighted Barclays lower margins on mortgages and increased competition on deposits, which were reflected in their third quarter results, as the reason for the bearishness. Furthermore, they see those same pressures remaining in 2018.

The there is the small matter of the dividend or perhaps better put, the matter of the small dividend. Barclays dividend yield is just 1.5% which compares poorly to Lloyds, which has a yield of 2.5% and HSBC, which has a yield of an inflation busting 5.4%. Adding to the dividend woes was Barclay’s weak performance in the Bank of England Stress test.

The stress test showed that Barclays had the lowest margin of error. There are some concerns that they may see increased pressure to increase capital, which could impact on the banks ability to raise its dividend. Finally, looking at the bank’s results, earning per share has fallen in three of the last 5 years.

This included a headline grabbing drop of 60% in 2013 and another heavy 22% drop last year as a slew of one-off adjustments, write-down and charges have played havoc with the banks profitability.

How: Barclays is trading down 11% on the year although, the price has picked up in recent weeks. The share price is up 4% this month, lifted in line with a broad rise in the FTSE 100 which could present a good entry point. Barclays continues to trade below its 200 sma confirming a bearish trend.
