The Black Horse Rides Higher Than Expected and the Hammered Share Price Might at Last Prove a Winner

Hello, Share Mashers. António Horta-Osório, Chief Executive of Lloyds Banking Group (LLOY), is standing down, saying he views the bank with pride. Though he’s presided over a big fall in share price during his reign. Never mind, he's been a good head honcho and nobody saw the pandemic coming. And the latest trading statement is encouraging, with the share price rising 5% on it, a rare jump for a Footsie giant.


The Black Horse Could Travel Even Faster Once Covid is Left Behind

Hello Share Trundlers. Ever since the big crash of 2007-8, it takes a brave bunny to suggest you look at British bank shares. But as a big holder of Lloyds Banking Group (LLOY), I’ve been heartened in the last few days at the jumps this difficult share is making. It’s all to do with the roll-out of the vaccines, of course. But is that optimism justified?


"What is the point of Lloyds?"

At the end of last month I wrote an article noting how both Royal Dutch Shell (RDSB) and Lloyds (LLOY) were wisely moving away from the sort of dividend payment seen back in 2019.  For Lloyds there was little choice as the regulators put the kibosh on dividend payments for the time being.  And - as I noted at the above link - 'a bank is a geared play on an economy and hence if you have a recession or worse, it is going to hurt', hence the writedowns the company noted last month and the reality that Lloyds shares currently trade for only a little above x0.5 price to tangible book. 


The Black Horse Hobbled by PPI But Now It Could Gallop Ahead

Hello Share Nudgers. When I heard the financial news on Radio Four my heart sank. I hold a lot of shares in Lloyds Banking Group (LLOY) and the latest full-year results showed a third drop on last time’s profits. But as so often happens, the share price actually rose – by about 3%...


The Black Horse Seems Tethered to the Brexit Argy-Bargy. So If a Deal Happens Expect a Big Jump

Hello, Share Bundlers. Looking at the chart for Lloyds Group (LLOY) is enough to give anyone the heebie jeebies. Mid-August the shares fell to 48p. Only a month later they were 55p. So up by 14%, which is an unusually big jump for a Footsie company. Less than three weeks later they were back down to 50p. And then at the end of last week, they were back to nearly 60p. Or approaching 20% better than on the ninth of this month. My Lloyds holding is one of the biggest in my book, so this up and down performance is pretty stressful. But why is Lloyds so volatile lately?...
