Most of the bad news was out on the 3rd Feb, today's fall is disproportionate to any fresh bad news in the results. IMHO , the fall appears more of a mark down rather than a genuine fall. On the brighter side , this mark down can only help the next HMG sale within 2-3 months GLA
Weird posting. When did Dropzone and Racial (I'm assuming that's supposed to be me) show any sour grapes? What with? Who about? I've looked back a page or two and all I can find is us telling folks to sit tight? Lloyds isn't significantly worse than a whole basket of banks. Nobody in the financial press has got any serious criticisms. I'm a few grand up after only being in this share since the end of September. I certainly haven't any bitterness about Horta-Osorio. I'm simply wondering what the hell that show a couple of weeks ago was about? And I AM worried about his state of health. I definitely don't think that the queue to replace him goes down the hall and round the corner and, if he were to announce his sudden retirement due to health grounds then this share WOULD go into a tail-spin. Giving him a bonus has to be looked at more carefully bu some of the posters on here. Before they all start bleating they should remember it's a Share Option Bonus, not a "Here's your envelope, off you go and have a nice Christmas" bonus, so it's in his own financial interests to see the SP climb and climb. I was a "bleater" too, until I saw the conditions of his bonus.... ..."Now I'm a Believer"....Couldn't leave now if I tried.... Sit tight. Be happy.
all my friend really wants is justice ,if lloyds had settled his just claim in the first place he would not have gone to a claims company and would not have paid their commission ,imo lloyds should give him the commission back as it was their fault he had to pay it in the first place
It is not so much as being about 'thick punters', because i remember (going back a few years now) being strongly advised to take out payment protection. In fact it was strongly intimated that i would not successfully get the loan without purchasing PPI. It got to the stage, where i would go in to the bank, ask for a loan and request PPI...... which i would cancel within the cooling off period. Each time they were livid lol.
I do agree that it is out of all proportion though, because now banks are having to pay out to all and sundry, even to the majority of people who genuinely wanted and requested the insurance. I dare say they are even paying out to many customers, who made a claim against the insurance. It is ridiculous and there should be a more thorough vetting process, though I doubt there is any vetting whatsoever, as how do they determine genuine cases from the others.
