Unsurprisingly Barclays (BARC) shares have performed rather well over the last year...although unsurprisingly they are still only about a third of the early 2007 level. Still - in recent times - I bought a few and, as I discussed here, a couple of months ago ‘I believe the next year will see a closer to 200 pence share price’.
Hello Share Fans. I dread to think how much I’ve lost by putting faith in British banks, both during the big crash of 2008 and afterwards. One of this family’s biggest losers is Barclays (BARC). But are things at last bucking up? The shares are currently a lowly just over 150p. Our last purchase was 200p...
We the start of UK banking sector results with the comments from Barclays (BARC) today. Yes, I have been an owner for a while and my musings here in October look inspired as we have seen a pleasant 40% share price rise over the last four months. Timing matters.
You need to be an optimist to both run a bank or to invest in one. Today's third quarter update from Barclays (BARC) was accompanied by a clarion call from the company's CEO (on a financial TV channel I happened to be watching) that the sector is going to play an ever-increasing role in any recovery and that - this crisis around - financial companies are 'not the bad guys'.
I am sure we all think that the bank we bank with is useless. But changing banks is such a pain in the arse. I’ve experienced it firsthand. Direct debits go awry, auto payments on your card bounce, you have to remember a new PIN, and so we don’t bother. But boy, Barclays (BARC) in the Isle of Man is in a class of its own for being useless.
