Lloyds standing small with new micro-branches

Lloyds Banking Group PLC now has an average rating of "Hold" and an average price target of $3.50. These analysts and investment firms use various valuation methods to decide a price target for a stock. Eight equities research analysts have rated the stock with a sell rating, ten have assigned a hold rating and three have assigned a buy rating to the company's stock. The research firm Downgrade the stock to Sell.

Another critical number in evaluating a stock is P/E or Price to Earnings ratio.

Graham Spooner, investment research analyst at the Share Centre, said some investors believe the government stake has acted as a drag on the share price in a sector that is already under pressure.

By the end of this year Lloyds will be left with about 1,950 branches around the United Kingdom, meaning it will still have the largest network of any High Street bank.

A 52-week high/low is the highest and lowest price that a stock has traded at during the previous year.
