|Berenberg Bank Reiterates “Buy” Rating for Softcat PLC (SCT)
Softcat PLC (LON:SCT)‘s stock had its “buy” rating reiterated by stock analysts at Berenberg Bank in a research note issued to investors on Thursday. They currently have a GBX 425 ($5.29) price objective on the stock. Berenberg Bank’s price target suggests a potential upside of 36.22% from the company’s previous close.|
|Noirua I agree there seems to be a cup formation (something I have just learned about)and with the special dividends this share returned at the end of the year which i believe it committed to do in future and the YOY growth I struggle to see why the share has languished for so long other than being dragged down by the sector. I expect a good move up and a breakout in the near term.|
|Slowly rising but seems to be quite an effort each day. Might breakout and test 330p and then go on to the July all-time high around 380p first.|
|Creeping up now, would be great to finish the day at 310.|

Softcat (LSE: SCT) is a provider of IT infrastructure to the corporate and public sectors. The £590m market cap company provides organisations with datacentre, networking and security solutions and provides the services to design, implement, support and manage these solutions.
Although Softcat only listed on the London Stock Exchange in November 2015, the company has been in existence for over 20 years, growing significantly in this time. In the last five years alone, revenue has more than tripled from £219.2m in FY2011 to £672.4m in FY2016 and the impressive growth is forecast to continue, with City analysts pencilling-in revenue of £744.4m and £813.0m for the next two years.
The stock enjoyed a strong yet volatile run immediately after floating, rising from 240p to around 380p, however the Brexit result caused investors to panic and the shares were sold-off heavily. Softcat now trades at just under the 300p mark and at this price, the shares trade on a forward looking P/E ratio of 15.1, which seems relatively low given the company's growth history.
Softcat also has appealing dividend prospects, with the company rewarding its shareholders last year with regular dividends of 5.3p as well as a generous special dividend of 14.2p. Analysts anticipate regular dividends of 10.3p per share for FY2017, a yield of 3.5%.
Although Brexit could potentially affect earnings, I believe that demand for cyber security and data storage services will remain robust in the coming years, and management recently stated that the company was off to a good start in 2017. After a 20% share price drop in the last six months, Softcat appears to offer broad exposure to the IT sector at a reasonable valuation|
