Yes, BNC looks worth a modest punt, should grow over the next couple of years and pay reasonable dividends regularly. KGF and BLT are both at low points and should provide growth and income. Might be worth a three way split but dyor. GL!

The run up to Xmas is has in many past years been good for share markets...that said the first week of the new year has seen many a drop or profit taking...

USA markets are still breaking new records .. how long this will continue is anyone`s guess.. a correction could well be forth coming ..the unknown is what keeps people talking.....

400p is only a 15p rise from it`s current 385p SP. .. no good to me buying in with no sure prospect of reaching that 15p rise... and 15p is not a massive increase worth a punt to me at this high level.... that may not happen....

I am as said before, will wait until the market gets bad news or a correction and hope to get back in on the next drop.... the range RBS has been trading in as myself and others have mentioned may well have moved up to a higher level of range... but uncertainty never goes away and volatility has been a good friend to many the past 2 years... Whether the high market gains this year will follow through the same for next year.... remains to be seen... then we have... the recession word being talked about in a few places.....

The best chance of 400p to me would be Februarys end of years results if it still shows good further progress.... and if nothing major has not upset the markets... Times are always changing and opportunities come and go....This year has been a good one for range traders as well as last year... 20% gain to be made in both years.... well out stripping any long term holders benefits....

What will next year bring, Euro Recession, Immigration /overpopulation... the Election, Global conflicts, Ebola house prices dropping, minimum wage, tax avoidance, Another mild winter and more floods.... all but a few issues in the frame of discussion....

Tesco and Virgin Banks were reported to be considering charging for Current Accounts last week.. I wonder if that will happen next year.....

Oh well that`s me, just put my thoughts out to you all.... it has passed 15 mins and now time for coffee...

Good Luck all....Keep Smiling....and keep DRY.

...or whatever. The political element is, I think, that the Tories will want, need, every trick in the deck to counter the UKIP influences and my guess is that GO will want to make some sort of announcement towards the sale of RBS. As I suggested a month ago, a little tongue in cheek, we could well see a three party coalition coming out of the election. The Tories to look after the money, UKIP to control immigration, The liberals to keep the new govt on an even keel. Changing times!

RE: 400p

The 400p barrier will be exceeded, I believe, fairly soon or by 31/01/15 latest. Yes there are still scandals and fines to be faced but the heavy duty ones have been paid for. What helps here is the underlying profitability and the increasingly streamlined and lean business. The UK Franchises owned by this business are grossly undervalued and it is the unknown unknowns that keep the price where it is. A Government partial sale is likely in Q1 next year as there is sufficient interest from II's for that to be a goer. I have added to my long term holdings over the last 2 months on this premise and have seen profit to date. I am a long term holder - DYOR.

I agree that the bad stuff probably isn't over. However, if we assume that a significant component of any current sp is the pricing of anticipation of future events then I think that the markets have already taken the cavalcade of dodgy practices by all banks into account; it is a market expectation that further culpability is likely and this has already been priced in. I think this is why the last spate of fines for which RBS has been implicated has not sent the sp crashing like it might have done 2 years ago. I don't really have a view yet on how the 2015 election might affect the sp but the current price is much more reflective of the perception of RBS as a strengthening concern and even if the next sets of results contain further write downs for culpability, the gradual upward trajectory encourages me that an additional 20p over the next 6 months might finally be possible.

As usual I admire your optimism but can't see the " bad stuff " being over before the election or if the Forex scandal is anything to go by maybe the election after that , lol.... There may well be a slow climb up to it , give or take a few dips on the road , but I'm not sure how politically relevant this would be . RBS still has a way to go before the tax payers are back in profit . Not an announcement that's going to be made any time soon .

Each to his own. My memory is that Hester set aside huge amounts and that policy has been continued. Over the same period the bad stuff has gradually reduced. There will come a point when all the bad stuff has been counted and there will be a surplus to return to the positive side of the accounts. The politics suggest to me that this revelation will be timed to suit the general election. Meanwhile, in the lead up to the election, as I have said, I expect a slow, steady, climb. I may be wrong, of course, but that is my hunch. No-one should stake their hard earned savings on my hunch, the risks are entirely for me. DYOR
