Lloyds shares relegated while Vodafone sneaks into TD Waterhouse top 10

26 June 2009 / by Rebecca Sargent
Shares in Lloyds Banking Group dropped from number one to number three last week in the TD Waterhouse top ten buy charts.

Meanwhile, Lloyds managed to hold on the top spot when it came to the most sold shares through TD Waterhouse, but a new entry at number two pushed Barclays and RBS down a notch.

Commenting, Angus Rigby, chief executive officer at TD Waterhouse said: "Vodafone broke the banks' stranglehold of the top three positions as its sell trades soared above RBS and Barclays to reach second place this week.

"Overall, the world's largest mobile phone company by revenues accounted for a fifth of the top ten sells as customers looked to take advantage of the telecom giant's huge share price hike last week," he added.

Overall last week, buys overtook sells at the share dealing house; commenting, Mr Rigby added: "Our customers have been on 'buy' mode again this week, with almost two buys for every share sold."

Shares in the mining industry also maintained their pull with investors as customers continue to snap up shares in mining giant Xstrata among others.
