Hungry dogs
26 Jun '14
No one saw this bit of bad luck coming. The comparisons to what occurred with BP is misguided. BP was negligent in its operations, sure, they hit it hard, but it was negligent. Barclays had conducted its operations like a swindler, deceiving its clients. I am convinced all banks are up to these low down tricks, but Barclays has created a bigger more apparent distortion and it is much easier to build a case against it. A better comparison would be the recent legal spat with Bank Paribas, BNP, which was fined around $12 billion. The population either side of the Atlantic are not going to blink an eye if these banks are hammered. And quite frankly, that Barclays (and yes, the other banks too) still behave in this egregious way after all the help they received, the trillions in easy money, they are still out to swindle. I think the regulators have belatedly realized that banks cannot reform themselves, and they have to clamp down on them. In an earlier post on another board I described such people as 'starving hungry dogs.' The regulators now realize that these dogs will never be sated, and some will have to be put down, some neutered, and others down-sized, or we will be right back to 2007 scenes sooner than anyone imagines. - Disclosure, I am not invested here but before this round of litigation I was looked at a quick entry around the 220 mark. I now have no idea for an entry point. But every investor, speculator, saint and crook needs to keep an eye on this story. So count me in.

Well done Steve/Sandra will you shut up, stop gloating and ranting and start adding posts with some substance?

What is it you expect Suff or Parkside to say? They both made their investment decisions, as they're entitled to do, are open to debate and reason and acted on their research and instincts. This is what the board, and investing, is about!

Difference Narrowed
26 Jun '14
The difference between today's SP and rights issue price is now less than 35p per share. It is a joke, Jenkins.

We'll see 300p again in the next 7-10 months. It hit >300p 3/4 times from January 2013 - January 2014.

FTSE will get above 7000 as UK eco improves and corporate results improve.

BARC's turnaround is and will pay off.

These are very cheap prices on a forward P/E.

Loads of bargains out there at the moment.

SP is around what I epected at open. Aren't we getting ahead of ourselves regarding the amounts of the fine? I would hazard a guess and say... since this isn't a financial regualator but rather a lawsuit, that it will takes months to reach a verdict.

I sold around 1/3 of my holding last week to put into XTR and I can hold onto the rest for as long as needed.

At these levels though, I'll be watching closely for an optimal buy point (which was already decent before today imo).

For long-termers, it really is a matter of waiting. It will hit 300 again, it's just a matter of when - Me, I'd say in the next 12 months.

I look forward to hearing from stone cold sandra... i mean steve austin later, telling all readers of how she prophesised 220, albeit based solely on DOW levels and market headwinds.

Chin up Suff, your time will come.

Invest the amount you would like in BARC into chunks during times like these. If it goes up - you've still made a profit. If it goes down significantly, average down without overexposing yourself.

Too true.

They have tried to take BP for everything it has, and we have a supposedly special relationship with them. They want us to support their economy, by them hitting UK company with fines, they are judge and jury.

BARC for the medium term
26 Jun '14
Hi, I'm new to this and want shares that I can put money in and leave for the medium term (e.g. check on month to month but not day to day). with Barclays moving to a 52 week low, and a possible high percentage dip today - is this the time to invest? If I then set a trigger to tell me when it's one up 10-20% I can invest and leave it to a certain extent.
I don't want to lose this money, and although nothing is a certainty, I can't see Barclays going out of business so even if I don't make too much over 3 years as it is a bit of a bet... in my (unqualified) opinion I'm not really going to lose.
Thoughts?
