Results were mediocre. Still lots of potential though and a quality business with £24bn AUM. Charles Stanley has been turned around, but it's still not profitable enough and revenue growth is poor. I have been a client and shareholder for many years. Their customer service is really very good and I haven't had a bad experience in best part of 15 years. Unfortunately though, I'm one of the few personal crest members that have been hit with a £504 charge per annum on each of my two accounts unless I transfer to nominee by the end of June. This previously cost me £nil. I'm in two minds about this. I'm disappointed about potentially having to move to nominee, but then again no other broker offers this and certainly not for no free. I will stay with Charles Stanley, but it kind of shows that they have offered more for less historically. I do understand that direct crest involves additional back-office processes on their side (a point that ShareSoc fail to accept). Charles Stanley offer certificated, voice dealing, direct crest and nominee. That's an expensive back-office, hence the move to one back office going forward. In terms of valuation, I feel that Charles Stanley are extremely cheap at £150m. Let s face it the whole company is only worth 0.6% of AUM given the lowish operating margins overall. That's a very low rating, particularly with £81m of cash (i.e. enterprise value is about half the market cap or 0.3% of AUM). I guess they either succeed on getting AUM up and margins to 15% or they will be acquired at a much higher valuation. I also wonder whether the Howard family want out or to keep Charles Stanley independent long-term as they pass the baton on. This goes back to 1896. Anyone remember the original "The Oceana Consolidated Company PLC"?....one of my favourite annual reports when I started investing 30 years ago fresh out of University with their share certificates on the cover...still got some in my archive!

Sometimes you think markets are efficient, then you see the share price of an asset manager like Charles Stanley fall on the days it announces reduced assets under management, when you'd think investors would know its AUM would have fallen as at 31 Dec in line with the market falling. Funny old game

At least the share price has fared better than I thought after results.

Not nice, but they do have £20bn under management, no debt and £20m of cash. They are being hit by low commission income due to stable markets by the look of things. They do need to get the cost base under control, but I'm sure they are well positioned to improve financial performance.

Horrible results. Costs out of control. Management relying on market growth / activity to get them out of trouble. Need to be better than that. Take over looks best hope as still value in the name, as can't see this lot cutting their cloth or salary to restore profits. Getting worse not better so hopefully a few of the larger shareholders will start pressing hard for change. Real shame as they used to be a well regarded operation.

Reckon we could be heading for a name change if we get more news like this. How does Hargreaves Stanley Lansdown sound ?

Profit warning today which appears to be due to very low levels of commission income and continued cost increases. Odd that it looks as though it was fully reflected in the price as no movement first thing! Commission income is c£50m per annum so a material slow down in trading patterns must be having an impact. It's not consistent with other players though that have had a positive impact from things like the Royal Mail IPO. I've stopped buying shares of late though, as I think its better to accumulate cash where we are in the cycle and so maybe I'm a typical Charles Stanley customer!

This company has come a very long way from Oceana Consolidated of old. The management team are top quality and take a long term view. I'm sure they will get a grip on things. If they get taken out, and I don't think they will, then that will be at a chunky premium. You would have thought Brewin Dolphin are starting to get interested, but don't think they have the right cultural fit.

I have been looking at the numbers and from from I can't see why the directors pay themselves 400-/ + and a bonus of 70/- + Why... They haven't performed.. what are the non exec doing... I feel a letter to the muppets to so what they consider there role is... Protect shareholders or just bank there 25/-

They are just going through a rough patch. I'm sure that they will continue to prosper in due course. Has anything fundamentally changed? Not in my view! Just need to tighten their cost control a tad.
