Latest news on TSB pricing

TSB has narrowed the price range for its upcoming flotation to between 250p and 270p per share, valuing the challenger bank at 1.3bn pounds or more, according to sources familiar with the matter cited by Reuters.

One source said the sale was "well-oversubscribed" within that range, the news agency reported.

The challenger bank had previously been targeting a range of between 220p and 290p.

RE: TSB Float...

Whether you agree with all of it or not, he does raise some very valid points.

Personally, I’m not that worried about exposure to interest rate risk – at least, not yet. We know that rates are going to go up next year, if not at the tail end of this one but, when they do, it will be by such small increments.

After such a long period of historic lows owing in part to the very delicate nature of our recovery, rates are not going to jumping by leaps and bounds.

All of this is largely academic to me anyway because I’m not going to be going after any TSB shares myself. I’m more interested in the likely implications, if any, for a Lloyds-holder.

In any case, hope this helps some who are weighing up the pros and cons.

Spot on, much better than most explanations......I was and still am in a similar position ,but as it turned out it was a good thing I sold some at "the top " as it were, and bought a French property, 14 years, ago,although it is presently debatable ,if sold,whether there would be a profit or loss .There are some good bargains out here at the moment,with some ex pats wanting to get back to the UK,and others downsizing, perhaps also not a good time to sell with the pound rising,good to buy though?

Dull
17 Jun '14
In this fleeting market mood (+ or - a week perhaps) TSB will do ...OK. Like Pakka, I agree she will be towards the upper end of the spread range, mainly possibly only because of Carney's comments last week. [I think I mentioned £2.75 a few days ago, I'll refine it to £2.65 now]. I have already said that the IPO will be ovwer subscribed by the II's and retailers. BUT, this is a dull dull dull stock and if you want to do this with your TSB holdings:
"...whats the worst that can happen...drop a little, rise a little, or stay static,..."
as was mentioned by a contributor a couple of posts ago, then fill yer boots gunga din! The problem with this is that it is lost money - trapped in a dull stock, when that same money could be working for a living in much more exciting stock.... Live a little wait for a juicy stock to IPO and wade in then. Don't waste it on Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz TSB unless you wear a grey mac and a hat!

TSB & HBOS
17 Jun '14
Does surprise me that some people are lacking a basic grasp of the history of LLoyds. Saying Lloyds does not want TSB and wanted to get rid of it, indicates they think TSB existed. TSB is a deunk Brand name that Lloyds has labeled the 600 Branches that it was forced to sell, it has absolutely no relationship what so ever with the original TSB Bank. As for any two bob lawyer being able to get round the EU directive to sell, that is a fairly wild statement to make. Lloyds is selling off TSB because it has to.

As for the HBOS takeover, Eric Daniels was an idiot and was conned and cheated into the take over, the only aother option was to nationalise HBOS. As Brown had already seen the panic when the far smaller Northern Rock had queues at its door demanding cash, he was extremely worried. As Lloyds was the only player who did not have a crisis position of its own, Lets remember Lloyds was ending 90% of value not 110 or 120% like some, then Brown targeted them to save the country from a banking crisis. He therefore LIED to Daniels who like an idiot failed with his due diliegnce and took over HBOS. That legacy is there for us all to see !

I saved the country not the taxpayer as a Lloyds Staff member and sharehholder I personally lost £70,000 saving Gordon Browns arse. In my view Brown and Daniels should be asked to explain exactly what went on in those days when the take over was pushed through.
