Suggest a refresher course in economics for equitrder! Maybe johnmaclean can dust off his lecture books and do the job...just not on this forum.
The iniquitous firing up of the printing presses of the socialistic governments of US, Europe, UK and Japan and the circular purchase of sovereign bonds from deficit riddled relics of the past at zero, if not sub libor rates has to be the final kick of an already dead horse. The pursers of this destruction of capitalistic value of demand and supply and the attempt to burn up economic fundamental thought created over centuries of balanced thought need to be driven from the offices that they have managed to infiltrate. The use of Trump's phrase "drain the swamp" comes to mind. Drive the Draghi, Carney, Yellen and joker in Japan out of office....the sooner the better. If that means changing political horses, so be it. Stock markets...don't lose sleep about them until the 2% in the yield curves that have been destroyed by this cabal have been returned to the savers of the world. If the borrowers of the world fall under the wheels so be it. Long overdue is a halving of property prices in all of the abovementioned nations. Remember also you cannot proceed to Economics 201 until you have passed Economics 101!
Every time(one exception)the Fed were 'supposed' to be raising interest rates over the last 4 years they crashed the stock market.
Collusion?? Where is the inflation??? New Economic 101???
Trickle down dead??(: Reagan is the hero of the so called deplorables. Trump and his band of merry geriatric billionaires are only interested in 1 thing and thats lining their own pockets.unless they are repenting for their sins of the past and are looking to buy indulgences for their salvation...
Actually in economics 101 higher inflation leads to higher interest rates leads to lower share prices not the other way around. You can see by looking at the s and p what low inflation has done for share prices.
cantor predict that AIB will pay a dividend for H216. With Ulster already paying BoI will follow. As things stand with bond and exchange rate improvement and managements stated aim of paying one asap I would be very surprised if we dont get one for H117 and I know its foolish but I still have a tiny hope that we might get a little something in march next year. It depends on how the next 3 weeks pan out. eg. trump keeps promising to spend billions, Italy patch up some kind of government and bank deal and May and friends continue to realize the bind they are in without a soft brexit.
Tech and the internet poses a huge challenge to traditional banks in the near future but for now your statement that interest rates will never rise again is wrong. It may take a while in europe for rate to rise but the signals that QE will start to taper is not far away. The premise of QE was based on the trickle down effect. that model appears to be broken and as a result you see a huge popular revolt. they have not got their share of the dosh. The rich have got richer and in many countries with a social welfare system the benefits available have not left people any worse off. So the squeezed middle are making it clear to the powers to be that they wont stand for their lot much longer. The ECB will be forced to act to head off problems in Italy, france and of course Germany.
What I would add is take Richie's advice if you are a long term borrower and FIX. if an investor get ready to protect your money in a higher inflation economy. I would also say the decks are been stacked in BKIRs favour at the moment (so long as the Euro survives).
Sp needs to get away from what ever way the wind blows. As much as I think dividends are ridiculous with a penny share the volatility is just over the radar (sorry) . May a dividend of some sort with give a bit more grip to this share?
John I know 3 small businesses who raised money thru crowd funding because the banks wouldn't get involved. It still hasn't been properly regulated but imo it will be how your average Joe Soap will earn his returns in the future.
