    HSBC currently + 6.5% and headed higher on London market ( HSBA.L ).

    Any insights on high PE ratio? Seems very high for a bank….unless there was a one time expense that temporarily lowered the E.
  • Z
    Any one have a different view than Jim Rickards on this company?
  • J
    Buy at 22 or lower.
  • K
    @jason If you look at the danger of expanding crisis of full war in Europe , $22 buck is even too high .
  • J
    Too much exposure in Asia and Europe where recession is predicted to start fairly soon

    All the banks are down, but HSBC will lead the way down. China isn't helping at this point with their COVID response and more centralized control.

    The Times of London: Analysts said that the insurer was unlikely to receive a seat on HSBC’s board as a result of its increased shareholding. However, there has been speculation that the bank may increase the number of directors from Asia. Currently only three of 15 are from the region. One of them, Laura Cha — chairwoman of Hong Kong Exchange, with close connections to Beijing — is expected to step down from HSBC’s board soon, having served for nine years.
    Ping An started buying shares in HSBC in 2016 and took its stake above 5 per cent in December 2017, after which it had to publicly disclose its holding and changes. It has suffered a heavy loss on its HSBC’s shares, which have lost nearly 60 per cent of their value in the past two years.
    Asian investors were said to be angry when HSBC along with other big banks in the UK were ordered to freeze dividends earlier this year to help cope with the financial cost of the pandemic.
    HSBC has been hit by several difficult issues in recent months, the most recent of which were reports last week of a leak of documents alleging that it along with other banks continued to move money for clients which suspected of engaging in criminal activity.
    HSBC has also been criticised by US and British politicians for supporting Beijing’s National Security Law to crack down on Hong Kong dissidents and has been attacked by Chinese authorities for its role in the arrest of Meng Wanzhou, finance chief of the Chinese telecoms group Huawei, in December 2018 at Vancouver airport on a warrant from the US.
    Observers believe that pressure on the bank may lift somewhat after the US election in November and once noise over Ms Meng’s contested extradition dies down, although that may not be for many months.

    China’s Ping An Insurance Group Co. raised its stake in HSBC Holdings Plc, cementing its position as the lender’s biggest shareholder.

    Ping An Asset Management Co., a unit of the insurer, bought 10.8 million shares of HSBC on Wednesday, according to a Hong Kong stock exchange filing on Friday. That brings the group’s stake to 8% from 7.95% previously. BlackRock Inc., the second-biggest holder, currently owns 7.14%.

    Some here may remember me, most will not. I expect HSBC to more than double in value over the next 18 months.... $60/share. My opinion. Do your own due diligence.

    How low is this going? 15$? Bankruptcies / bad loans / leveraged to the max / housing payments halted / mortgage crisis 2.0 - what happens to the price when this all impacts HSBC 2-6 months from now?

    Explain.. HSBC had a dividend holiday for almost 2 years due to govt. policy in the UK for banks to protect capital during Covid. Now the dividend is partially reinstated and HSBC has hoarded billions of pounds Sterling from unpaid dividends which they do not seem to be returning to shareholders as their dividend now is much less than it was before the dividend withdrawal. So, what is this company doing with all that retained capital? I have a big holding in HSBC but I have lost patience with their inept management and will likely sell after the next EX Div date. Does anyone have any reason to suggest that this company will turn around at some point?

    Bought this back in 2015 around $43... with dividends reinvested I am at about +15%... thinking I sell out of it - take the money and run. Thoughts?
  • H
    New here, I see this is a foreign bank . Do you pay a tax to England on the dividends you receive ?
  • T
    Hiya, inexperienced trader here, wondering if some of you more experienced traders could help me understand why this is rated as a strong buy when it seems to be very volatile and often trends down? Thanks in advance!
  • B
    The market cap meltdown of this stock is stunning. But with a 6% dividend and an apparent bottoming out, might this finally be a good entry point?
  • j
    Nice dividend paid out this quarter...$1.05!

    I try to only post intelligent knowledge and here's a warning... HSBC is a China-Investment entity essentially and they have large exposure to Evergrande.
    "Ashmore Group Plc, a London-based money manager that specializes in buying emerging-market debt, was one of the biggest holders of the company’s bonds with more than $400 million worth, according to data compiled by Bloomberg based on end of June filings. Rules on how funds disclose their holdings vary in different countries.

    BlackRock Inc., UBS Group AG and HSBC Holdings Plc were also large owners, many of them held by vehicles that focus on riskier emerging market or Asian credits." -Bloomberg

    Aside from the outstanding valuation, still well below book, here's another reason the shares have a long way to go- HSBC is still the safest way to get in on China growth.

    " SINGAPORE: HSBC dumped all its stake in Evergrande early this month, following in the footsteps of TCW, which exited the month before, according to Morningstar.
    The fund managers are the latest to join a chorus of Evergrande’s bears, including Pimco, Barings, and T. Rowe Price, which have shunned or have significantly cut exposure to Evergrande in their portfolios since mid-last year. "
