LLOYDS is going to FLY Hi @J_Westlock, Congratulations on your INRG profit, I see it was up 5.6% just yesterday - wow. Your approach seems to be heavily trading based, identify some opportunities, buy them low, sell when your target has been achieved - rinse and repeat. I think you might have some traditional “longs” too, as I think that you hold VOD, HSBA and maybe even LLOY ?. Just guessing. I dont do ANY trading, I only sell something if I see continued poor performance or I see some threat that might severely impact the share price or ability to pay dividends. I dont typically sell to take profits, I am a long term buy and hold investor. I hold things and take the dividends (5 digits per annum) and re-invest them. I like really boring investments that do nothing much day to day but just pay 5-7% dividends - which is why I like prefs, renewables, REITS, other debt investments. I am not keen on equities TBH as they are simply too volatile for my liking but I recognise I need to have them for diversity and growth. ATB Pref
LLOYDS is going to FLY PrefInvestor1: I really dont know how my grandchildren are going to get on, buying a car, getting an education, getting married, buying a house As well as Sky TV, Broadband, Spotify account, Netflix sub, Amazon Prime sub, new iPhone every couple of years with large data allowance, gym, daily latte’s, expensive protein shakes etc… Not a hope they’ll have enough to set aside a month, to put towards a deposit.
LLOYDS is going to FLY Hi All, Well congratulations to all LLOY shareholders especially you @regardless, a very positive day for you with share price up and the dividend increased. I read through the results just after 070 and have to say I saw a few negatives in there eg Underlying profit of £7.5 billion, down 7 per cent Net income of £17.1 billion, down 4 per cent. As these are nothing to do with PPI or impairments just general performance of the bank. I had no idea how the market would react though, sometimes good results are hammered and bad results well received – just no way of telling. Anyway ATB Pref
LLOYDS is going to FLY close 59p
LLOYDS is going to FLY Yes its all over the place very volatile. Markets don’t know what to make. Maybe SOI will be able to close his shorts after all.
LLOYDS is going to FLY Now dropping as fast as its rise in the first 30 mins of the day. Currently 57.4p which I said it would be by the end of the day!
Lloyd's Final PPI So little to get excited about or be glum. Overall pretty much as one anticipated above. FWIW, I’ve decided to hang fire about adding more shares here largely as I hold enough & I also think recent lows may be retested later if various UK macro-factors take a downturn. Still a significant risk exists of that happening. - GLA.

LLOYDS is going to FLY 'The first three quarterly payments, payable in June, September and December will each be 20 per cent of the previous year’s total ordinary dividend per share with the fourth quarter payment payable in May, following approval at the AGM. ’ So we will get this final Dividend of 2.25p I guess in May followed by around 0.67p June/Sep/Dec.
Lloyd's Final PPI 2.45 billion provision for the year 2019. soi
LLOYDS is going to FLY Love it Phil
LLOYDS is going to FLY Add back say £2bn of the £2.5bn PPI charge going forward gives them up to another 3p a share to play with for share buy backs and dividends all other things being equal.
LLOYDS is going to FLY Thank God Lovely Dividend increase No further PPI charge for Q4 Lloyd’s is a massive buy for any pension fund
