Morningstar | Barclays' 1Q 2019 Results Affected by Weaker Margins and CIB Performance

Barclays posted first-quarter profits before tax of GBP 1.5 billion compared with GBP 1.7 billion last year, excluding litigation and conduct charges. The culprit this period was the corporate and investment banking unit, which delivered weaker results in equities, corporate lending, and transaction banking on the back of reduced client activity and lower volatility. Additionally, credit releases in the first quarter last year, which could not be repeated, hurt performance. The segment’s profit before tax declined to GBP 0.8 billion from GBP 1.2 billion last year. Underlying profits for the gr...

Morningstar | Barclays' 1Q 2019 Results: We Are Maintaining Our FVE

We believe Barclays, having completed its restructuring plan, will be ahead of peers in terms of focusing on its core business and grabbing market share. Litigation costs and conduct charges that were hanging over the bank have largely been resolved with the U.S. Department of Justice settlement regarding residential-mortgage-backed securities. Downside risk related to missold payment protection insurances remains, but we view the capital set aside by management as adequate to cover future charges. All in all, Barclays is set to focus on profitability and returning cash to shareholders in the ...

Barclays Reports 2018 Results; Non-U.K. Business Shows Positive Development

Barclays reported profits before tax of GBP 3.5 billion for full-year 2018, unchanged from last year. Results were again held back by litigation and conduct charges totaling GBP 2.2 billion, slightly up from 2017 as a result of the GBP 1.4 billion settlement regarding the residential mortgage-backed securities case in the U.S. and GBP 0.4 billion in payment protection insurance charges. Adjusted for this, profits before tax increased 20% to GBP 5.7 billion as higher net trading income more than ...

Short term view - BARCLAYS : The trend is bearish.

The trend is bearish. The bounce is gaining strength. The bounce might end at the resistance at 177.26 p and prices would fall again toward 158.66 p. The background trend would be questioned should prices rise above 185.90 p.

Analyse court terme - BARCLAYS : La tendance est baissière.

La tendance est baissière. Le rebond gagne en vigueur. Il est probable que cette reprise s'achève sur la résistance à 177,26 p et que les prix baissent à nouveau vers 158,66 p. La tendance de fond serait remise en cause en cas de franchissement de 185,90 p.

Matthieu DRIOL

Short term view - BARCLAYS : The bounce is gaining strength.

The background trend is clearly bearish. The bounce is gaining strength. It is too early to qualify this market action as a bullish reversal. The background trend would be questioned should prices rise above 185.90 p.

Matthieu DRIOL

Analyse court terme - BARCLAYS : Le rebond gagne en vigueur.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse. Le rebond gagne en vigueur. Il est trop tôt pour parler de retournement haussier. La tendance de fond serait remise en cause en cas de franchissement de 185,90 p.

Matthieu DRIOL

Medium term view - BARCLAYS : The movement goes on.

The background trend is clearly bearish. The movement goes on. The next target is at 158.70 p, then 139.30 p. Passing 217.20 p would question the continuation of the fall.
