Friday’s close saw Lloyds Banking Group reach the week’s high for the stock, finishing at the 76.72 mark, just brushing below the 77.03 it had achieved earlier in the day.
If this trend of upward movement continues Lloyds could be expecting substantial gains, such as those recorded earlier in the year.

By the end of trading, the Deutsche Bank had shifted target price of the stock form 94p to 95p and maintained its buy recommendation. JP Morgan classified the stock as overweight, while Espirito Santo Execution Noble recommended investors sell shares. It is only financial institution to have issued such a recommendation.
