Cheers. It's been a very kind shorting share over the years. If have it wrong this time , won't cry about it. In fact, if trading above 68 friday week, il be out. Don't like to hold running losses. It's as long as I give most shares to get going after entry. Two weeks max. 50's to 70's, must say, very good for percentage return for those that caught the low. I'd class it a but silly to be holding and risking such a percentage return. Could take a lot longer elsewhere. Good day or short term trade buy. There hsve been a few decent short term buys here, on the way down to this low. Well done to thise thst got in and out with good timing. I won't wish you luck with it. You sound extremely confident this is in the rise so, il congratulate you before it even happens.
Lloyds, if there is any belief in it, may gain a few pence in the next two to three working days, into ex div. Personally, il be shorting that high, day before. If it doesn't rise significantly into ex div, before the drop, wow. It's in trouble when special div announcements can't do much for it. (hasn't so far).
I but as much as I short. No bias here so, just an opinion with zero emotion. If it was a buy in my view, I'd buy it. No probs
Fair enough. If it doesn't limit funds for other trades, why not. Afren do happen though, and banks have no assurance policy. Even when they had, SP fell from 600 to 70p in ten years. Normally, as a share gets closer to zero, it's because it's presently classed as junk, not value. But can recover. However, I'd rather see a recovery base formed. Than stab in the dark at it.
Eagleb, quagmire was reference to the sector. I see the sector as entering a new bear cycle now. And can't see why lloyds would be immune to it. Could be. Just can't see it personally. Lloyds, took ten years to drop 600 to 68. Recoveries on the whole, tend to be longer than the falls in events. Twenty years probably a better ascertion, to get back to pre event prices.
However if targets are more realistic eg, 100p etc (far lower than price needed for whst you could class as recovery - past event highs), then fair comment. I don't see 100p happening for maybe a few years too. Not in this sector state.
Bur, it's a mere bear opinion, same as bull opinions here. Nothing more, but nothing less too.
Tradersworldnow - and if the price hits 45p and that's a "BIG" If, I'll Buy more. Averaging a shares is not as dangerous if your average is lower then the bottom price. Stocks going down is good news unless there going broke that is.
Some investor are interested in capital growth, rather than income, I go for yield, as to me that shows of value. 2.75p dividend this year is not to bad and this "should" increase over time.
Totally agree it's a lot harder for banks, but don't forget that Lloyd's is actually performing very well as a business. That's not been as noticeable recently with ppi/fines, fingers crossed we are getting to the end of that.
This is my little nest egg, Savings accounts are shocking so might as well make something from it. I'm also not silly so wouldn't hold a dead stock.
I don't know what markets are going to do this week, next week or even next month (Wish I did), but I do know what they'll do over a long period of time "They go UP"
You obviously have some type of interest in this share? a quick couple of bucks I'm guessing
You're lumping Lloyds in with the whole Banking Sector & even then withe exception of RBS (basket case) what justification do you have to suggest "no major recoveryin the next 10 years" ? & Wild statements of "never seeing such a quagmire" ? Sorry but I'll repeat it again the only thing holding Lloyds back is the millstone of Govn interference.once they're out & even the unprincipled scheming liar Osbourne ain't stupid enough to linger beyond 2016, you'll see Lloyds surge. GLA
Could be the time to buy more. If 45p isn't the next stop. Averaging into shares, dangerous game. Only works if a share rebounds one day. For me, banks have lost that, once credible assumption. As for the sector, I've rarely seen such a quagmire, apart froom oil. Problem now is, bears are back in on this sector chart. Had a decent rebound, well, for banks. I fear nears now ha e reason to slaughter once more. Question is, are banks really, the long term answer for investment? One must remember, from a big fun perspective, it's a lot harder for banks to outperform coming expectations. Regulations. Cant gamble for a bonus these days. Actually have to work. So, I don't see a major recovery in banks in the next ten years. And I'd they do start a recovery, it would be far slower than the drop, hence, ten years to recover, reasonable.
