      Despite rebranding bringing with it enormous costs which take a sting on investor dividends and their sentiment, Barclays has done exceptionally well over these past two and a half years. Hence, one can only imagine that even better days lay ahead. Keep in mind that the rebranding process is due to be completed by July this year, so it's prudent to buy before then. In fact, expect investor interest to heighten prior to the date and also several months afterwards.
