Conservatives aim to sell Lloyds shares to small investors

Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Osborne gestures during an election campaign event in LondonBy David Milliken LONDON (Reuters) - Chancellor George Osborne said on Sunday that he intends to sell billions of pounds of government shares in Lloyds Banking Group to small investors if his Conservative Party wins the May 7 election. Britain's government put more than 20 billion pounds of public money into Lloyds at the height of the financial crisis in 2008 and 2009 - buying 43 percent of the bank - and has since sold almost half of this back to large investors. The move harks back to the privatisation of Britain's state telecoms and gas monopolies in the 1980s under former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, which aimed to encourage ordinary Britons to invest in the stock market. With opinion polls published overnight showing the opposition Labour Party level with the Conservatives, Prime Minister David Cameron is expected later on Sunday to promote the planned sale as a sign of Britain's recovery from the financial crisis.

Factbox - Deutsche Bank looks to slash retail banking

Deutsche Bank will sell Postbank but keep its own-branded retail division under one of two strategic overhaul models currently favoured by management, sources familiar with internal discussions said. The two models most likely to be considered are the following, according to investors, analysts and financial sources briefed on the discussions: "THE GREAT DIVIDE" This model would see Deutsche Bank broken in two, with all retail activities sold off, and Deutsche abandoning its so-called universal model. The group's Postbank division and its Deutsche Bank-branded retail network would be sold, possibly together in a stock market listing, allowing the group to focus on more profitable corporate activities. Postbank is one of the least efficient retail banks in Germany with a cost-income ratio of 81 percent compared with 67 percent at Commerzbank .

China securities regulator denies encouraging short selling

Investors look at computer screens showing stock information at a brokerage house in ShenyangChina's recent liberalisation of stock short-selling rules is not intended to encourage the practice, the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) said on Saturday, after overseas markets dropped sharply in response to the move. In a post on its official microblog account, the CSRC published a transcript of a journalist question and answer session in which it was asked whether the goal of the policy was to encourage short-selling and depress the stock market. "This is a misunderstanding, a misreading," the CSRC said. "This sort of trade is a mature mechanism used in overseas markets, it helps moderate volatility and help with price discovery and hedging against risk ... It is certainly not encouraging shorting as has been said, even less an attempt to suppress the market." Short-selling involves borrowing stock in order to sell it, with the aim of buying it back more cheaply and thereby make a profit.

Wall St Week Ahead - Investors look to earnings for market direction

Traders works on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeBy Chuck Mikolajczak NEW YORK (Reuters) - Investors attempting to determine whether U.S. equities will rebound from Friday's selloff or continue to sink will look to a deluge of earnings next week for a clearer picture of the economy. Equities lost ground after industrials Honeywell International and General Electric took hits from the strong dollar, while concerns over new trading regulations in China and Greece's place in the euro zone dented sentiment. Investors have grown concerned about the impact of a strong dollar on quarterly results, even as they remain leery of missing out on any rally. "Our markets will get kind of quiet again as we wait for some of those earnings and what is going to happen on the 24th with Greece," said Keith Bliss, senior vice-president at Cuttone & Co in New York.
