shareholder7: I think softcat would look cheap at 250 and might attract a US company that what's to get into the UKMight be the best bet now for this share to move as company is not making much attempt to correct the share price with any positive news

igoe104: Brexit? No impact at all, chuckles reseller juggernaut Softcat warned of storm cloud in UK ahead of referendum, now says it blew over. The storm clouds Softcat pointed to gathering over the industry in the months prior to the EU referendum didn’t rain on the firm’s parade after all, judging by financial results outlined to the City today. The mid-market reseller said in the spring that business confidence could be dented by political uncertainty, but as it transpired, sales for the year ended July grew 12.8 per cent to £672m, ahead of analysts' consensus, but slightly slower than in recent years. “We have continued to win large numbers of new customers and earn increased spend from our existing customers,” bellowed Martin Hellawell, Softcat CEO. Demand “remained solid despite the distraction of the referendum,” the exec claimed. He reiterated there was no magic formula to filing its 44th plus quarter of consecutive growth, just attention paid to customer service by an “engaged team” at the company. Softcat added a Glasgow branch in the year, and hired 133 incremental staff - management have always laboured under the idea that more account managers equates to more sales. “To build scale we have continued to recruit more people into sales, technical specialist and service roles to advice on, implement and support technology for customers,” said Hellawell. The revenue mix in the year saw £319.97m generated by software, up 11.3 per cent year-on-year, hardware accounted for £250.7m versus £233.8m and services some £101.6m, up by nearly a fifth. Hellawell claimed the top line numbers were “significantly ahead of the market” and a 17.5 per cent spike in gross profit to £120.7m showed it was “taking significant share from competitors”. Customer numbers and gross profit per customer grew 7.5 and 9.2 per cent respectively in the year. Administrative expenses grew to £78.5m from £63.19m in fiscal ’15, leaving operating profit at £42.2m, up 6.6 per cent, which included exceptional costs (the IPO). After tax, net profit was £33.15, up from £31.11m. Softcat floated on the London Stock Exchange in November at 240 pence, the share price peaked at 380 pence but has settled around 300 pence. “This has been a busy year for Softcat. It hasn’t been an easy year and never will be. We constantly need to prove our worth to existing and new customers in a very competitive world,” said Hellawell. "While it is always difficult to know exactly what is affecting demand in our industry, we did see some customers making slower decisions leading up to the vote… in the aftermath of the referendum, we have seen no obvious impact on trading in what remains a tough and fiercely competitive market

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.

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 ?

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?
