RBS

RBS aims to wind down one billion pounds in local council loans - The Guardian. (Reuters) - Britain's Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc is aiming to wind down 1 billion pounds of bank loans held by local councils across the country, The Guardian newspaper reported on Saturday. The development follows criticism from activists and John McDonnell, finance spokesman of Britain's opposition Labour Party, that high payments have led to diversion of cash from council services. RBS is aiming to wind down the loan portfolio by the end of the year, the newspaper report said, adding that the main method of executing the winding down is through loan redemptions.

This is what I’d do about the RBS share price right now

RBS

Over the last 10 years, Royal Bank of Scotland Group (LSE: RBS) has repeatedly disappointed investors hoping for a turnaround. However, I believe that patient shareholders may soon be rewarded. The RBS share price has performed strongly this year and market sentiment is improving. This means there is a big ‘overhang’ of stock that will need to be sold into the market. If demand isn’t strong enough, this could depress the bank’s share price. RBS shares have risen by 26% so far in 2019, reversing the falls seen during the final quarter of last year.

The Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc (LON:RBS): Ex-Dividend Is In 3 Days

RBS RBS

Important news for shareholders and potential investors in The Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc (LON:RBS): The dividend payment of UK£0.11 per share will be distributed to shareholders on 30 April 2019, and the stock will begin trading ex-dividend at an earlier date, 21 March 2019. 5 questions I ask before picking a dividend stock. Whenever I am looking at a potential dividend stock investment, I always check these five metrics:. A business with strong cash flow can sustain a higher divided payout ratio than a company with weak cash flow. If there’s one type of stock you want to be reliable, it’s dividend stocks and their stable income-generating ability. Whilst there are few things you may like about Royal Bank of Scotland Group from a dividend stock perspective, the truth is that overall it probably is not the best choice for a dividend investor. But if you are not exclusively a dividend investor, the stock could still be an interesting investment opportunity.

Why I think 2019 could be the year the RBS share price finally takes off

RBS

I have been bullish on the Royal Bank of Scotland (LSE: RBS) share price for some time. Indeed, ever since the company announced that it had settled with the US Department of Justice last year, settling its final substantial outstanding liability from the financial crisis, I’ve believed it will only be a matter of time before the market re-rates the stock. Admittedly, it has taken longer than I thought for investors to return to the RBS share price. Even though the bank has announced bumper results and decided to restart dividend payments for the first time since the financial crisis, the stock has produced a total return of -1% over the past 12 months, underperforming the FTSE 100 by 3.5%. This seems to indicate that no matter what happens with Brexit, RBS is now back on a firm footing. If the company continues to report profitable growth throughout 2019, then I think it is going to be difficult for analysts and investors to continue to justify their caution towards the business.

Why I’d dump buy-to-let and buy into the RBS share price today

RBS

Why I’d dump buy-to-let and buy into the RBS share price today. Fool.co.uk14 March 2019, 10:40 GMT. While buy-to-let properties are often purchased to generate a second income, FTSE 100 shares such as RBS (LSE: RBS) could offer stronger income potential. With dividend payments due to be covered 1.8 times by profit, there could be scope for continued dividend growth over the medium term. As such, the stock could become an impressive income opportunity, with its share price performance having the potential to be positively catalysed by a rising dividend. This figure has been boosted by a falling RBS share price, the bank having been relatively unpopular among investors in the last year as the prospects for the UK economy have become increasingly uncertain.

RBS

British taxpayers set to lose 31 bln stg on RBS rescue -watchdog. LONDON, March 13 (Reuters) - Britain's fiscal watchdog on Wednesday said it increased its estimate of the likely loss to taxpayers from the 2008 rescue of Royal Bank of Scotland to 31 billion pounds ($40.83 billion), up 2.4 billion pounds from October. The increase came mainly from four more months of servicing debt on the bailout, Britain's Office for Budget Responsibility said on the same day finance minister Philip Hammond set out his latest budget plans. The widening loss to Britain's government from the bailout came despite RBS paying a special dividend on its annual profits in 2018 for the first time in a decade.
