|Looks like falling back to 1.70. I am staying put and will top up.|
|the contract posted by por997.
stop loss just kicked me out of this share.
may move some money into SCT or wait for a retrace.|
|Workday down large last night.|
|which contract mfh? and the share price is down by 4pc today|
|great to win another '.gov.uk' contract. onwards and upwards.|
|Kainos this week reported a 3% increase in adjusted pre-tax profits to £7m for the first half of the latest financial year. Overall revenue for the same period was up 9% from £37.2m on the same period a year earlier to £40.6m.The company confirmed that it had grown its presence in central and regional government with both existing and new customers.|

|Threat of a retrace below 220's has receded somewhat tonight after that positive close which included beating and sitting triumphantly proud of a resistance point. Still not out of the woods yet and the share price could decide on a down tools and scarper off on a retrace but I'm quietly optimistic that most indicators are not out-and-out bearish tonight. They're not screaming buy buy either. Suppose the word that best fits the situation tonight is simply HOLD.|
|they offshore in Northern Ireland, it is cheap enough there, and in Poland.
I appreciate there is bucket loads of demand for migrating workloads to the cloud, but there is no profit growth forecast this year as costs build. + 20x for no growth? i don;t quite get that.|
|I know they are different things. But we are talking about offshoring here and not selling products. If Kainos do this then I will lose total respect for them and will be dumping all my shares as I said. I hope they don't go down that route but they might as the likes of Cap Gemini, Capita etc do it and it's a disaster.|
|offshoring and selling your products and services are two different things.world has changed immensely in recent years and once cheap labour countries became consumers as well|
|There is more about the keen interest Kainos have in India in this radio interview yesterday with the CEO.
|Apart from NHS contracts down everything looks positive (that was expected anyway from previous updates)new opportunities visible on horizon like usa and India contracts which can make knos truly international company less reliant on domestic market|
|Oooh far too pessimistic Eddie87. There's numerous interim support levels long before sinking THAT low :) My concern is that the immediate supports are way below the 220's at just over 200 and just below 200 at 195ish. Too early to call it at this hour - but what an encouraging start to the day!! Which gives emphasis to my belief the retrace is nothing but a correction from an overbought condition and will not be more serious due to a good trading update and reasonably strong fundamentals. This current retrace is nothing to do with company metrics and everything to do with sentiment. It will pass :)|
|It's been on an incredible run up when you think about it.
Again relatively speaking feels fairly stable now.|
|SEEMS to be fighting back .....|
|It looks like there is no downside support all the way down to 171 level, as the last time it stabilised. It might yet test those levels.
At a PE of 20 at the current price, that price would get it to around a 15.5 PE; the story here feels the same as Tribal Group, around ten years ago - also reliant on government contracting - that didn't end so well, though the company is still in business.|
|Normally I would expect a share suffering a one day fall of 6%+ to continue that fall the following day. Without exception! But support is currently a disproportionately, long way down below. However, now the bubble on the overbought situation has been burst, maybe it's just a case of it overshooting? To that effect the share price can stay in the 220's tomorrow without injury so long as it closes at the higher end of the 220's with 229p being the first resistance level to overcome - if the share price comes out fighting that is! Anything closing below the 220p's won't bear thinking about, before it hits support.|
|On course to meet expectations for the full year despite not expecting much change in the NHS.
"The Group expects continued scarcity of funding and slower procurement in the NHS to continue into the second half of the year"|
|The fundamentals are good
Debt approx £1.04m
Profit approx £15m
PE 20.47 - about right for software co.
Big problem, as I see it, is major investors concerned about revenue/profit going forward especially re National Health - this could have serious effects on y/e numbers|
|Compared to longer term full day averages it's really high volume right now and it's only mid day! Every time the share price gets near 222p it gets met with fierce resistance. Would be encouraging if it closed end of today above that, but sheer volume dictates no fickle flucuation as bears over ruling bulls when share price rises back to near 222p level - at the moment that is, ie., currently Monday mid day.|
|Yes I am not surprised at a retrace today to be honest.
Nor would I be surprised at a renewed interest working upto the dividend.
I am keeping a few stocks in these uncertain times covering different bases as it were.
Not got a lot in anything,mostly cash.|
|With positive results released today and a positive future outlined in same results, the good thing about today's retrace is that it might deter overly rapid share price rise, so almost certainly in near future, will see share price higher than Friday's close of 236p and yet still be below and well clear of being in danger of overbought - if subsequent rises are orderly and progressive rather than sprints.|
|I think it might well be an individual thing.
The share price had risen well for some time and those well in profit ,who can blame them for selling?
I had only been on break even from getting onboard earlier on so I decided to sit it out.
If I thought there was no hope I would have sold of course.
It looks as though it will be a company that goes on surviving to me with reasonable products,a handle on what investors want...if not growth then dividends or a mixture of that....
It's horse for courses but do agree with above factors.|
