Is it time for me to sell my Barclays shares

I completely agree that Barclays (BARC) is not an exciting company and I consequently have probably written about it too many times on this website. Anyhow the good news is that this is likely to be the last time I will write about it. It is time for me to sell my Barclays shares.

The Barclays boss and Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton's paedo mate, the late Jeffrey Epstein

Hello November! The eleventh month of the year has always been an interesting one for the world’s investors with over the last 70, 20 or 10 years only April - on average - generating a similar return. Of course nothing is guaranteed but the reason why November has on average performed well is a combination of Q3 earnings updates and building hopes towards upcoming end of year brokerage updates towards the following year. It is not guaranteed, but its all good active investment fun and now for a couple of bits of excitement in today’s news.

I am still not quite selling my shares in Barclays

As a boring large cap-focused investor, I often look at the medium-term. I certainly bought a few Barclays (BARC) shares too early in 2017-18, but it did give me the rationale to double my holding during some dog days last year. But fundamentally it has told me for a while to take my profits and run when the share materially breaks the 2 quid plus level.

You don’t need to hold Barclays shares for all of the 2020s

Back in April I observed that at the time it was ‘getting closer to my two quid and out share price target on Barclays (BARC)’. Well that was true at the time...and sort of still true today even if the shares today are slightly lower than it was a few months ago. There are a few reasons for that.

Final business day of April...and Barclays lets me down

It is the final business day of April and from the perspective of stocks I own, there is some good and some less good news.  Let’s start with a small positive at Headlam (HEAD) the ‘Europe’s leading floorcoverings distributor’ which I have loved up for a while and last month, here, discussed ‘the rationale to get back to a 500p plus share price’.  This morning I noted the company announced ‘it has entered into an agreement to dispose of its wholly-owned Swiss business, Belcolor AG to the management team of Belcolor...As a result of the disposal, Headlam will realise approximately £12.0 million'.  Given the company’s near £400 million market cap, it is not a massive deal but a sensible one, as the key focus for the business is the evolving UK business.  It is also nice to add a little bit more cash too.  In short - along with the two readers who kindly commented on the article above last month - for me it continues to be a good core position.
