Lloyds to downsize branches to only two employees

Former HBOS employees allegedly covered up the Reading fraud scandal

Now let's take a look at how the fundamentals are stacking up for Lloyds Banking Group PLC (LYG). A recent bid puts the equity at $3.24.

Basically, a price target is an individual analyst's projection on the future price of a stock. Lloyds Banking Group PLC now has an average rating of "Hold" and an average price target of $3.50.

The simple moving average is the most common method used to calculate the moving average of prices. Five brokerages rating the company a strong buy, fourteen brokerages rating the company a buy, five brokerages rating the company a hold, two brokerages rating the company a underperform, and finally one brokerage rating the company a sell with a 12-month price target of 69.90GBX. They now have a GBP 1835.00p price target on the stock. Natixis raised shares of Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC from a "reduce" rating to a "buy" rating in a research note on Friday, March 17th.

The difference of 52 week low value as well as 52 week high value and the current price of the stock suggests the next move of the shares.
