Good post .. Like all of us just predicting .. Me included .. We have the Europe vote, oil may rise even higher, and as you say interest rates may increase later this year...

Full time good paying employment maybe reducing as part time and Zero hours are reported growing .. And the pressure on retail shops seems to grow more from the Internet sales and shops trying to price match Internet prices.

Terrorism and the Mass unprecedented amount of movement of millions of people into Europe, will in the coming 5 years is surely bound to have some impact. The cost of getting them all settled with housing, jobs, medication needs and of course they will increase the population even more as their the families grow.. Such an influx of different cultures and religions do not always mix as we all we know by what goes on in the world now..

Meanwhile hopefully things and the coming changes will turn out to be a positive and RBS and the UK economy move to better times .. As you say the long wait has a long way to go yet.. Hope 300 is achieved by this years end..

ATB .. Beautiful day on the NORFOLK coast..

Next significant rise
Thu 08:14
I personally don't think the share price will start rising significantly until back end of 2017. As it needs to diversify the Williams and glyn part of the bank. It was initially planned at start 2017 but been pushed back slightly. This then comes in line with 2018 when hopefully PPI will finally stop. So quarter 4 of 2017 to summer 2018 will be when the bank starts movings until then I don't think it will go much above 300. Unless there is changes interest rates in the mean time but again I wouldn't expect that probably till inflation increases so again summer of 2017 at the earliest for that. So I think the share price will stagnate for the next 12 months.

Broker Cantor

The broker estimates the current burn rate is around £7mln per year and some additional funding will be required in the future. Results in 2016 are also likely to reflect the cost of the development work says the broker but from then on sales should start to pick up leading to losses starting to fall by 2018 and a move into profitability in 2019. Cantor sees revenues of £4.2mln in 2017 rising to just under £14mln in 2018. Broker view - Cantor initiated coverage with a ‘buy’ recommendation and a target price of 77p.

Banks have had a bad run the past year as you know .. Maybe the tide is turning as the Oil price has incresed and if interest rate in the USA has move up a by the end of the year, it may encourage the UK to make one move up as well. That being another positive for bank profits.. ... As mentioned recently any expectations of a rise to £5.70p.. To equal The last 57p at the old price ... Seems unlikely in the next 5 years at current state of play of the economy... The amount of mortgage and credit card debt and overdrafts are reported at high levels now.. So the public taking on more debt to pay more interest to boast Bank profits one would think is limited ... As many I would think are in cut back mode... Then the Eoro vote could go either way and be a positive or negative quick response on the outcome .... All this said hopefully RBS can make a slow move up to the £3 level by the annual results in February .. In 10 months time..

State of play
Mon 21:18
RBS is not the only FTSE100 share to have dropped 50/60% in the past year, quite a number have. Having substantially reduced my RBS holding my task has been to select those that are at low levels and likely to recover quickest. Not easy! It could be that RBS shapes up as strongly as some others but without the expectation of 3-6% dividend. I guess that is the fun of it, especially in allocating how large a holding to take in individual companies.
Which ones will come through, who knows! Maybe I should have stayed with RBS but it seemed to be a very serious gamble. Director purchases suggest a more positive future. We'll see.

LennyMac I agree with most of your last post. Banks like other stocks usually tend to track the FTSE however RBS have been the exception to this rule over the last 12 months, losing almost 50% of its value at its low point. The City I believe have grossly over sold this share, and are now having to evaluate the share which will mean it should outperform both the FTSE and the rest of the UK Banking Sector in the short term until it reaches a fair value on current and future earnings growth prospects.

It seems as the Oil price as recently started to rise again so has the RBS SP.... and the whole banking sector has had an upward move the past 2 weeks... Oil Price or the change in sentiment towards banks has finally started to improve things. ..

Hopefully banking in general it can hold onto the gains achieved recently... They have had a really bad year and maybe the tide is now turning.. and banks are now returning to be more popular ..

A FTSE of 6800 as we go into the summer period of sell in May and come back in October Theory.... plus the Rough Waters of the EU VOTE to get through ..could well be an interesting time ahead.....

Regarding the vote ...

With both the EU in or out parties not stating anything about controlled immigration..... which the majority of the public find is one the main issues .... this EU vote and thoughts about it ... could well go up to the final day....The simple basic concept of the EU has slowly over the past 40 years become a machine of different cultures demanding different things resulting in creating many problems... freedom of movement is only as good as the limits any country can cope with... beyond those limits you have the creation of conflicts and confrontation.... So it makes sense that population limits based on size of the country and the basic resources that can cope with extra population is paramount..
