The trade deficit for the UK economy has widened

This is one reason why the pound sterling has weakened.

England, unlike Scotland, imports more than it exports.

On 10 September 2014, the headlines in the newspapers suggested trouble for 'Scottish' businesses.

Yet the truth is otherwise.

On 10 September 2014, we read that twelve analysts have assigned a buy rating to Aberdeen Asset Management.

JPMorgan Chase is one of the firms with an 'overweight' rating on Aberdeen Asset Management.

On 10 September 2014, The Daily Telegraph writes that shares in Cairn Energy are worth considering ahead of a busy drilling schedule.

On 10th September 2014, Investec removed Royal Bank of Scotland from its list of stocks to avoid and moved it to a more moderate ‘hold’ rating (previously ‘sell’).

On 10th September 2014, Standard Life's stock had its 'outperform' rating reaffirmed by RBC Capital in a research note.

They currently have a £460 target price on the stock. Standard Life opened at £405.90 on Wednesday. Standard Life has a 52-week low of £331.70.

Andrew Garthwaite (above), of Credit Suisse, predicts that if Scotland votes for independence, and gets control of its vast oil wealth, there could be a ‘large-scale deposit flight’ from the Royal Bank of Scotland - or a run on savings - unless the Bank of England stepped in to guarantee bank deposits.

This of course is nonsense.

The Royal Bank of Scotland is owned by the London government and 90% of its customers are in England.

So, the Bank of England will protect the Royal bank of Scotland (and other such banks).

Credit Suisse is said to be run by crooks.

Some people mention it alongside Enron.

Credit Suisse has been convicted of a felony

It has pleaded guilty to “conspiring to aid tax evasion” and been fined $2.6bn.

Credit Suisse has a long history of investigations, out-of-court settlements and prosecutions of executives in several countries.

Are the bankers a bunch of crooks?

Rona Fairhead (above), the BBC’s chairman-elect, is being sued over her involvement in the HSBC money-laundering scandal.

Rona Fairhead is facing a class action lawsuit by HSBC shareholders over allegations the bank allowed terrorists and Mexican drug cartels to launder money.
