I really am expecting the worst.... I cant think of ay time in the last 7-8 (maybe ever from a risk perspective) years where the world economy has looked quite so bad, but on the backdrop markets keep going higher which is even more scary. As you say anything less is a positive note.
Being a penny stock doesn't make an AIM share. Regardless of share price, market cap is what matters. Lloyds would be wise to start a buyback program and reduce the shares in issue. �40 billion quid AIM share? Nah
Bang on the money Wenty. Economic growth is slowly being reduced Banks are highly geared vehicles dependant on economic growth. Italian and Spanish banks as you mentioned, are of growing concern. Expect the worst....then perhaps we will be less disappointed. Cheers
Zimbabwe in 2009: Inflation was at 79 BILLION percent???
could be better:
Lloyds profit on 28th: 1.76 billion compared to �945 million last time. Divi reduced to: 0.9%. With the carrot dangler for end of year of: a "special divi" (which will be cancelled in November due to a psychopath becoming the next President of the USA.
This share is a penny share and will remain thus for years - get used to it guys. Perhaps it should be relegated to the AIM.
Longshort, Im not sure the results really matter (unless extreme), its the outlook, uncertainty and macro economics weighing on the share price. Im optomistic on lloyds but not on the macro economic outlook.
Wenty & Asperger1 the optimism has been around for a number of years now, if not this half year results then in the full year results of 2016 if not then 2017.....Agree with Newchurch on his analysis of the lost dividend income for the past years.
