Neil Woodford has recently bought stakes in RBS and Barclays.

It’s no secret that Neil Woodford has had a “disappointing” year so far. He’s admitted as much himself. His trio of fund offerings have underperformed both their benchmarks and sector averages.

The star fund manager has taken big hits on what were some of his highest conviction ideas. His stake in Provident Financial (PFG) has plummeted 70% in less than five months. His holding in the AA (AA.) has slumped 40% year-to-date.
