maddox: Well here we are, today is Sage's 2015 Capital Markets Day. It will be interesting to see whether Sage's management team are able to persuade the analysts to revise their (overwhelmingly) negative opinions on Sage's prospects: Strong Buy - 1 Buy - 1 Neutral - 7 Sell - 1 Strong Sell - 8 Must say the opening share price movement doesn't bode well, down 11p (2%) at 538p as I post. Well FWIW my view is positive: hTTp://www.stockopedia.com/content/sage-has-rediscovered-its-mojo-98464/ What am I missing? Regards, Maddox

maddox: The current broker views are still reflecting scepticism about Sage: Strong Buy - 1 Buy - 1 Neutral - 6 Sell - 1 Strong Sell - 8 and their price targets are all well below the current share price. Its going to be interesting to see whether Stephan Kelly can change their perceptions. He will be laying out his strategy and ambitions for the business next month, Sage Capital Markets Day 24 June 2015. Regards Maddox

essentialinvestor: Maddox, how much does the rapid re-rating already allow for?. The growth prospects have changed little, it's the perception that has changed which has lead to the rapid share price run up.

maddox: Sage continues to buy-up shares but the share price continues to fall. Seems that there are plenty of weak holders or are shorters providing XS liquidity?

miata: Sage Group sold Sage ACT! and Sage Saleslogix to Swiftpage and Sage Nonprofit Solutions to Accel-KKR. Like Invensys (which just sold its rail business) it is returning cash to its shareholders. It is a smaller company and with current very low interest rates seemingly has no earnings enhancing place for the funds released. True it maintains EPS for management and ensures the share price holds up. Personally I never think that sharebuybacks are large enough to benefit the small investor and would rather have the cash back.

a77: Why didn't they re purchase their own shares instead of this special div lark? Less cost & administration. Is there a tax benefit? Or is the share price now too high for the repurchase to have been beneficial?

miata: Panmure Final results feature a massive increase in the dividend to 9.75p way ahead of our top of the range estimate of 8.9p. In addition cash flow remains strong, the company is adding new customers, there is continued growth in the subscriptions, and the European margins surprised at 29% Adjusted EBITA (we had expected 24.5%). What's not to like well, to be frank, the outlook statement is more guarded than we expected it flags up a range of 'macro' worries and this will make for a subdued share price. For 2011A we were ahead of consensus and results are a shade better than expected; for 2012E we are a shade below consensus and we make another downward revision this morning however, strong Euro margins result in an increase to our EPS from 20.5p to 20.6p. Shares remain attractively valued P/E 13.4x but even after the step change the dividend yield is only 3.8% (i.e. investors can get better yields elsewhere). Our gripe Sage needs to do a more convincing job on growth. We retain our ongoing Buy recommendation as we nudge up our price target from 326p to 333p.

lyntwyn: Rumours of Oracle interest in Sage raise eyebrows as well as share price The rumour spread like a brush fire:Sage was the latest target for Oracle, Larry Ellison's software company. The Newcastle-based accountancy software specialist was chased as high as 299p before settling a more modest 10p better at 296p. After 70 acquisitions, including Sun Microsystems, owner of the Java code to write web applications, and Peoplesoft, an enterprise software company that rivals Germany's SAP, Oracle has a well-earned reputation for regularly swallowing large rivals. Yet the gut feeling among those purporting to be more familiar with technology companies was that a move for Sage made little sense. Oracle buys technology, not customers, they argued. And besides, Sage's customers, predominantly small and medium-sized businesses, do not sit comfortably with Oracle's wider range of generally much larger customers. Microsoft, Oracle's only bigger rival, has been linked with Sage in the past. So, too, have SAP and Intuit, a close American rival. Others suggested that with Sage under new management and Bain Capital widely rumoured to be sniffing around the legacy computing specialist Micro Focus, private equity interest would be more natural. Regardless of the substance of this particular Sage yarn, the technology sector has been a popular subject for takeover speculation of late. todays Times

liquidkid: Accounting software provider Sage Group said Monday that it's financial results for the six months to March 31 are expected to meet analyst forecasts. On average, analysts are expecting 129 million pounds of pretax profit and revenue of 617 million pounds for the half-year, according to an average of 11 analysts supplied by the company. - Last year at the interims * Revenues increased by 34%* to £574.7m (H1 2006: £429.7m*) * Adjusted pre-tax profit^ rose by 12% to £121.8m (H1 2006: £108.9m) So as at today there's more revenue (on acquisitions) and flat profits. The average analyst forecast has come down recently. I guess this justifys the low share price.
