    I just reminded myself of the share price back in the 90s!

    Suspect it might open high today, even though this was known in advance. I like Lloyds, I think they've turned their business around and paying off that debt already is impressive. I'd like to be invested in them, but alas waiting for funds to be transferred from my CISA to my S&SISA.

    i replied to the OP which was about lloyds. however my losses:

    - sainsburys stock bought 5 years go - still at a loss
    - centrica - loss - bought 4/5 year ago

    thats all the losses. all my other positions are all in profit. however todays moves means i am less in profit by a good few thousand pounds (10k or so).

    I will be happy when they reach £3, which is I believe a realistic 5-10 year target (Unless the loons get in, then I will revise that down to 30p lol)

    but

    topps tiles - down 16%
    william hill - down 7%

    however I haven't lost or made anything as i haven't sold, and i certainly won't be selling for less than i paid

    Why and how is Lloyds going to quadruple in market value from £50bn to over £200bn.

    HSBC is only worth £136bn...........
