Banks Top the Charts for Equity Investors

Lloyds Bank (LLOY) remains on top as the most popular stock on Morningstar.co.uk last month. The stock is currently rated as undervalued by Morningstar analysts.  The bank has retrieved itself gradually after its ill-considered acquisition of HBOS in 2008, according to Morningstar analyst Erin Davis. The U.K. government, which remains the bank’s biggest shareholder, has begun selling its stake in Lloyds. In 2014 the management announced plans for a nominal dividend, its first since 2008. Management also hinted that it eventually plans to return up to 70% of earnings through dividends.
