smokybenchod: Computacenter reported a 5% fall in UK revenue recently and 2.8% rise overall. Today they are up 7% as they are upgraded to Buy from Neutral by UBS. Softcat report an overall 12.8% growth in revenue, and the share price is currently down 1%. I give up.
maverick82: Very pleased. Nice little dividend tooFingers crossed the markets responds accordingly and the share price adjusts accordingly!
shareholder7: Really strange how the share price keeps falling with the results due next weekMust mean that they might not be as good as expected
shareholder7: I think the share price is being linked with sterling and this is why it's falling People see softcat as a U.K. Company and feel that sterling will effect their growthThis is how I see it 1 they are an extremely well run company and have a unique sales methodology 2 they have just hired a bunch more people and are growing 3 their customers have international earnings so this won't slow down their spending on IT 4 uk customers without overseas earning would be wise to buy any software now before it goes up so I would except higher sales in the first quarter 5 uk customer will still have to buy Microsoft and other branded products as technology is the key to reducing overheadsI might be wrong but I am buying as much as I can before the results Let's see, I might be eating humble pipe on 19th and need a beer ?
rhodris: Can anyone shed some light on why the share price has come off in the last few days. Wider market issues I suspect?
smokybenchod: shakeypremis, current PE is NOT 30. Forecast EPS for this year is 18p and 20p next which at share price of 2.90 makes a PE of 16 for this year, NOT 30. Forward PE of 15 for next year. You were only circa 100% out.
shakeypremis: Fairly typical SoftCat share price action here. After a rise, the retrace seems to usually wipe out almost all of the gains before another subsequent rise.
iamkhan: Chaps. I'm looking to invest in this but I am scared off by the volatility. Any reason why the share price is so volatile?
ayl30: Wheres the share price chart above? I thought there was one when I looked before?
malc999: Well guys, my patience ran out today and after doing my own little evaluation of the available scenario's to existing shareholders as I see them, I sold out today at a thumping loss. Of course I'm not happy about it, the only positive being a crystallisation of a loss which I can offset against other future gains, and of course releasing some cash for other investments. As far as I see it, the scenarios are: 1. MTI or another third party lend the required cash to SCT via a convertible preference share issue. MTI are easily in the best position to do this (assuming they have millions of pounds of cash to lend in this way), but they must have been receiving regular updates from SCT on their current trading & cash positions, and no deal has been struck as yet, so I really cant see this happening, especially when there are better options for them (see 4 below). 2. A major order is received, or combination of smaller orders, that is enough for SCT to borrow against the order book. This hasn't happened as yet, and its too late for retailers to order with Christmas in mind, so I don't see the orders coming through in time. 3. Some other company makes a bid for SCT, and a bidding war breaks out between MTI the other company. But with MTI the current major shareholder, they can block any takeover by a 3rd party if they wish. More likely is that a predator is waiting until SCT falls into administration and then a bidding war breaks out with MTI, thus SCT is sold to the highest bidder (and current shareholders get nothing of course). 3. Enough naive share rampers (chancer6 et all) pile in and drive the share price above 5 p for enough time to allow SCT to arrange a rescue rights issue. Out of options 1 to 3, this seems the best realistic case scenario to me, which just shows how desperate the position is!!!!!! And finally, the most likely outcome in my opinion..... 4. MTI let the company fall into administration and buy the company back, and at that point providing whatever finance is required. Once the company has a good trading history (I would guess at least 2 years), they re-float SCT ensuring that enough cash is raised at the IPO stage to allow for any further hiccups (SCT will be coming to market with a patchy history, remember). As far as I can see, this provides MTI with the greatest profit potential for them. The risk issue here for MTI is that some other company buys SCT from the administrators, which will of course reflect very badly on MTI's reputation. As I've mentioned in previous posts, IMHO MTI ain't stupid, they will have seen this coming and I'm sure will have worked out what their next move is. So I'll be watching developments with interest, and a final thankyou to chancer6 and his fellow share rampers who have provided me with a very small and IMHO a temporary share rally to sell into!! Without them I'm sure the share price would be lower than it is now.
