Barclays shares are in demand, despite the fall-out from the LIBOR scandal and Bob Diamond's resignation, with investors buying five shares for every one sold.
Almost half of the top ten share buys were Barclays following Diamond's announcement he would step down on Tuesday morning, according to TD Direct Investing.
Chief executive Stuart Welch said: "Barclays was the key focus for our clients, accounting for 48.4% of the top ten buys and almost one fifth of the top ten sells," reports the Telegraph.
Investec Securities said in a note: "Our case for buying Barclays now is simple. Firstly, increased recognition that attempted LIBOR manipulation is a multi-bank issue should drive a reversal of Barclays' sharp underperformance.
"Secondly, reducing credibility of some of the more outlandish estimates of potential civil litigation risk - any culpability for which should be shared, and its valuation is the wrong price for a solidly profitable, defensively positioned bank now trading at a discount to both Lloyds and RBS."
Barclays' share price is around 33% lower than this time last year, according to the Telegraph's Questor. This morning, Barclays shares are down 0.54% at 165p.
