Regarding ex divi day, the date they will be trading ex-div is 02/04/15, therefore they will drop on Thursday to allow for the div, not Wednesday as you suggest. That only allows that day if you want to sell to release any capital gains due to the Easter hols.
There is as much chance of SNP featuring in the next government as there is of LLOY being worth £2 this year!!! The poisonous obnoxious trecherous scabs called the SNP best stay north of the border where they can stew in their own juices. Now - back with normality - LLOY could possibly bounce off 80p by Friday. That means with a fair wind, it will start next week @ 79p and automatically drop 0.75p on ex divi day (Wed). So this time next week we could be looking at , what - 78.5p. Yes perleeeeeze....
Doubt that, mate . Salmond was only reiterarting what has been the SNP position for ages . Be nice to see both Cameron and Milliband acting like the grownup politicians they're supposed to be but I doubt it will happen, the run up to the election seems to be getting progressively more petty . England's a great country but for years now large parts of it have been getting shortchanged by your politicians . Might be time for a change. ATB PS .
As far as I know, yes they are. In The Times over the weekend they were talking about this whole disinvestment process taking up to another two years. I just can't see that. Surely the government, even after the election, wants to get rid of Lloyds and RBS. Lloyds is obviously going to be off their hands far sooner. Timeline? I reckon by next Christmas. Just a guess based upon the time since the first offload and the last one.
