Barclays trades at a significant discount to book value. Significant costs associated with running down and selling non-core assets and outsized litigation costs have produced low returns and even outright losses in recent periods, largely masking the earnings power of the core franchise. Returns moving to and beyond 10% will drive valuations to and above book value and a simple return to book value in the coming years portends a doubling of value.

compensation
Today 17:02
I have received compensation for late payment of my dividends on dumb investor. They only paid based on them not accepting liability of late payment. A long explanation cut short, dumb investor uses a third party company to deposit the dividends and then allocate to dumb investor individual accounts. I just could not get to what is the reason why they would do such a system that result in such delays in receipt of funds. I showed dumb investor Customer Service examples on other accounts from other providers that dividends received same day and no reason for weeks of delay. Compensation has been paid to me and a rather nice hamper sent as well. Actually quite happy with the compensation and complaint process, it took 3 months but Customer Service rep easy to discuss. It is just so sad that dumb investors is such a disaster. I have moved away from them all my holdings. I continue to own BARC shares, they are likely to take a (small) financial hit from this disaster.

Am still waiting for my ISA transfers to go through to my new provider. This time the whole transfer has been held up/delayed/revised because one of the 50 odd stocks was temporarily suspended (Totally) and thus not included in the initial transfer listing. Never once has Smart Investor ever made a promised phone call about any problem. So I have effectively been blocked from any trading for over 6 weeks, so far.....

agreed!(bottom paragraph!)..I have asked the same simple question to smartinvestor message centre 5 times now and no one has given me an answer.I fail to see why a "smart investor" would deal with morons and expect to pay for it.The service I and others have had from barx lately WE need paying to participate.I noted on a trade sale a while back it took 3 goes to go through..meanwhile the price had fallen! Then they inform me by contract note they have "saved me money"
Yeh ,thanks barcs...Cannot wait to get out but their transfer system is appalling.

One possible upside
Mon 14:27
I've noticed a (small) potential "upside" to the whole ShmuckInvestor car crash. In the last few days I've received a couple of contract notes for the DRIP trades following the payments for DGE and GSK divis (part of my 'long term holding' portfolio). Now comparing the 2017 contract notes with ones from 2016 (when the trades where through the MarketMaster account) I noticed that there is no longer a "commission" charge being made. So that saves a couple of quid a trade. With a few trades a quarter you could actually pay less for running your account while paying the monthly 'tax' to ShmuckInvestor than paying the per-trade commi to MM.

While that ameliorates the sting a bit it still does not pardon the absolute steaming ple of dingos kidneys that the current ShmuckInvestor website offers.

"thinking" and Barcs in the same sentence? lol..I`d have gone already to IG but the situation for me is complicated as I have delisted shares awaiting listing on Frankfurt exchange...Barcs no longer deal there and they have no idea how to transfer the shares.In fact any news they impart to me is news I have sent them to explain what is happening!
It is the height of incompetence and high farce when you explain to the company who you employ to deal with corporate actions that there are corporate actions to deal with...and you send them a link...and they send it back to you as information!!!! Try and ring them to point out how stupid that is..then get sent round the houses for an hour ..then get transferred to someone who starts all over again.. GRRR.

Would be interesting to know

If the change was deliberate or bungled. A deliberate change would be along the lines of we know it's crap but we don't have many clients and the new system is more cost effective even if we loose lots of customers. Or.....This is going to be better, let's upgrade the systems more cost effective better service. oh wait hang on a minute it don't work, dam losing loads of customers, dam this one big ****** the former would at least indicate thinking is going on behind the scenes as opposed to just stumbling (provident financial style) into a big mess that was all of the companies own making.

Why would you change something that worked really well, Barclays must be losing so many clients, can't even trade on your phone, absolute joke. Cost saving I expect...
