Sunday newspaper round-up: Lloyds, BT, Standard Chartered

Sun 1st Feb 15, 13:33:23

Lloyds Banking Group is preparing to pay a dividend for the first time since it was bailed out by taxpayers, the Sunday Telegraph reported. The board will sign off the group's annual results and then ask the Bank of England permission to pay a dividend before announcing results on February 27th. Lloyds has one of Britain's biggest shareholder bases, but has been unable to announce a dividend since August 2008, two months before the government decided to inject capital into the bank. UBS analysts expect a dividend of 1p a share for 2014 - small in comparison with the bank's historic payouts.

Sunday share tips: Smith & Nephew, Severn Trent, Grainger

Buy shares of Smith & Nephew, Danny Fortson advised in the Sunday Times. The Inside the City columnist said shares of the maker of artificial hips and knees had surged after US rival Stryker said it was considering a bid. Smith & Nephew releases annual results on February 5th and the numbers are likely to be good. The possible Stryker deal is the most important question. A deal would be logical because US hospitals and insurers want suppliers to cut prices. Scale would help and there will be no shortage of demand. 11 hours ago
