When to sell? It is, by common consensus, one of the most difficult areas of investment to get right. However given the increasingly loud calls, not least from the banks themselves, for the government to reduce its 39% and 82% stakes in, respectively, Lloyds and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) – we will at some point have a very public case study in the psychology of selling assets. For the record, we continue to believe both banks remain relatively attractive at current share prices, we use them here as a high profile example of why selling decisions can be so difficult.
