Sorry disagree here. Jenkins headed up Barclaycard at the time of PPI which has and continues to cost us shareholders billions. He paid huge bonuses to the IB last year because he hadn't got the balls to stop them even when they were performing terribly. He has done a reasonable job but he was part of the original problem. He is no white knight in shining armour I'm afraid (especially for shareholders), but his best move for me is bringing in John McFarlane. It might cost him his job hopefully.
Hope I'm not jinxing this, but gut feeling is this share has started to react differently. Not plummeting as much at any hint of bad news, and often going down less / up more than Lloyds. Leading up to results day will be the catalyst on where this share goes for rest of year, assuming no nasty surprises on the way which no one can predict. Dark pool would help to be chucked out, but don't think that is as a big issue as some think, markets have already been told that £500m may not be enough, so as long as its not massively over that figure. But who knows. ''There are some that don't know, and there are others that don't know that they don't know''.
Uncle Bob Diamond should be hung drawn and quartered for the damage done to this bank under watch, but no he has a platinum Pension , jackpot lump sum and no worries he left this bank in so much Sh@@ !! All the litigation he has brought onto Barclays he should hang his head .He encouraged the profit at any cost culture it was a win win situation for him and his cohorts . Barclays should investigate every avenue of recouping the monies payed out to these guys who must be laughing their Coc@@ of at the Investors who are picking up the tab for their recless behaviour . Let's get our money Back !! Mr Jenkins inherited a very , very poisened challis boy oh boy who in their right mind would attempt to put right what uncle bob wrecked . Jenkins in my opinion has done a Stirling job and has turned the good ship Barclays around the long suffering share holders will come to see his efforts pay off. Stay strong and believe . Best Of Luck To All Investors Keep Smilling
I'm Spartacus!! If we were that smart on here we would be spending our money not still trying to make it! The Bears, i included, give good reasons for investments where as the bulls seem to be be short term traders so their opinions are not as relevant but happy to see them anyway. Be happy and GLA
