I read this on The Economist Espresso app this morning:
> HSBC reported a 62% fall in annual pre-tax profit, to $7.1bn. Royal Bank of Scotland, 72% government-owned, lost a worse-than-expected £7bn ($8.7bn), the ninth loss since taxpayers rescued it after the financial crisis. Lloyds, another British bailed-out bank, made £4.2bn, its best result since 2006. It is expected to return to full private ownership this year.>
Does that hint at the possibility of Lloyd’s Bank share prices rising later this year? I’m a total beginner but thought I’d enquire after reading that anyway.
