|Good results, great management and a "boring" company when it comes to tech. More "picks and shovels" than prospectors. So far so good.|
|Jusy been uograded to buy also by German bank. solid 6 months results should see buyers over next few days as the news gets out. Dont lose your nerve and sell as its going higher by cob Friday.|
|Market appears to be liking the results better after faltering slightly at the start. An opportunity to buy under 348p.|
|I also believe have growth for 46 quarters. That's impressive..|
|Point 15 in report "Historically, revenues have been marginally higher in the second half of the year than in the first six
months. This is principally driven by customer buying behaviour in the markets in which we operate.
This increased revenue weighting in the second half of the year has traditionally resulted in higher
operating profit in the second half."
If you look at previous years figures this reins true, 20% extra in H2 would be the norm if not a rather modest amount compared to previous years.|
|Looks good but key points for me :
2017 eps forecast 19.1p .
H1 delivered 8.5p ..... hence needs to improve eps by >20% in H2 to hit forecast.... to justify PE of x19
See what the mkt thinks|
|If only all my stocks had an amazing BoD like Softcat - this company is on fire and more importantly as hardware sales decline in favour of Cloud services they only go and increase sales in software which sits perfectly with Cloud development. New Graduate sales strategy is clearly a winner and an interim dividend, nice. Was going to sell but will now hold until at least year end. Congrats to all management and staff at Softcat - amazing work and fantastic shareholder value.
The Board is pleased to declare an interim dividend of 2.9p per share, amounting in total to GBP5.7m. The interim dividend will be payable on 28 April 2017 to shareholders whose names are on the register at the close of business on 31 March 2017. Shares in the Company will be quoted ex dividend on 30 March 2017. The DRIP election date is 3 April 2017. This interim dividend is an increase of 71% on FY16, reflecting both the growth in profit and the reduction in the prior period dividend due to the Company having only been publicly listed since November 2015, and demonstrates the Company's continued commitment to return excess cash to shareholders.|
|Firing on all cylinders according to rns, divi in line with plans|
|Interims tomorrow. looking good in run up since Jan.|
|Getting close to the 350p peak hit twice in the last 16 months, ignoring the spike to 380p in June last year. General range was 280p - 350p. Should be a lot more to come but always difficult to know what value for results is built into the share price and how many speculators are holding a bit too much stock.|
|A half decent 6 months report will see it push upwards of 390p and if its a very positive report with growth forecast high for the remainder of the year then it should be well into 420p territory by end of next week. Dont get nervous....be cool and make some money..|
|The latest consolidated analyst report on Mar 3rd (FT) suggests a mean forecast price of 410p with 3 of 6 analysts recommending buy. Only one reccomend sell with a 12 moth forecast of 250p. Don't know where he's coming from!
Any decent results reorted next week, especially if growth exceeds direct competitors, should see prices the price soar.|
|Resistance is £3.38 my thoughts are it will breeze through that then the next resistance is £3.94|
|Interesting gentle upward pressure on share price - looks like investment buying rather than trading. I estimate we are now approaching a resistance zone, based on its trading range over the past 9 months, which may take some time to overcome unless given a jolt (either way) by events.|
|Volume today highest for 12 months|
|Volumes low but price still rising nicely wonder where it will stop when real volume starts to flow..|
|The early February 445p target by Berenberg posted by igoe104 is still a long way off.

Moving to new price range of 330p to 340p before news on 22nd March|
|Its just about to take off- breakout.....|
|22nd it is then..|
|Results on 22nd March|
|Looking much better on run up to results on 20th March.|
|hopefully we will get a close today above the 328 resistance line which would be really positive add some good results on 22nd and we should see the price move up sharply.|
|Not taking much volume to move price. Breakout imminent juat before 6 monthly report on 20th march? Looking good....|
