The RBS: ‘Given current market conditions, continued economic and political uncertainty and the contraction of the yield curve, it is very unlikely that we will achieve our target return on tangible equity of more than 12% and cost-income ratio of less than 50% in 2020,’ https://www.ig.com/en-ch/news-and-trade ... rge-190802
'The news led to the lender’s share price tumbling more than 6% to 203p as of 14::10 GMT on Friday, despite the bank unveiling a strong set of half-year results on the same day.'
So what that means is that the return on equity that they said they would make before, they are now saying they won't make. The financial markets have to respond to that by adjusting the price per share downwards.
Avid on the other can simply make the numbers it said it would in the last earnings call, and that would cause the stock to go up since it means the guys in charge may actually know what they are doing.
Financial markets reward people for being predictable. They don't like surprises one way or the other. As you be come more predictable, your value goes up because it becomes a known quantity.
Avid is still an unknown quantity. That is what makes it interesting as a stock actually.
