Difficult call imo - if the focus is on "now" then it might well go down but if it's more forward looking (as market generally tries to be) then we may see an SP increase...so maybe a fall to begin with and then an increase later today when the market further reflects on 2015 performance and beyond? Basically, I don't know!!!
Yeah I was hoping for a slight increase in dividend, However if everything goes to plan this year I believe we will all be smiling this time next year with a full year dividend of 10p plus. Barclays is a money making machine and its only a matter of time before this reflects in the share price.
Agreed. Surprised at no dividend increase at all but maybe the extra £750m FX provision drove this as well as the 'usual increase' in PPI provision that all banks continue to suffer with...going forward looks promising but the lack of even a small increase in the dividend for 2014 is most frustrating.
It will be interesting to see what the markets make of todays results, I believe things are improving and its only a matter of time before we are knocking on the door of £3.50 plus. In the meantime I will keep buying on the dips :-)
