Working through the September/October seasonality correction:

Will accumulate in October.

Bit of a drop today, anyone any ideas why ?
Solid performance these last few days in the face of the brief sell-off.
I note that this is a low beta stock. Depending on which period it is reported over it comes in at between 0.36 and 0.57 so it's great for portfolio stability.

Doubtless (?) there will be another market correction before we set off into the winter bull market, provided the pols don't impoverish us with their management of the economy.
Nevertheless, or maybe because of all this, I have added my second tranche today at around £20.
One more tranche to go.


KNOS must be in a good position to win this huge project considering their ongoing work with DVLA...

"Digital driving licences to be introduced in bid to make transport 'fairer, greener and more efficient'..."

What now is not a specific question 'cos you don't frame it as a term view...

Easy, short term (noise):
33-1/3% chance it goes up; 33-1/3% chance it goes down; 33-1/3% chance it flat-lines.

Send me a cheque for £100 for the advice ;-)

OK, so this one's gone up. What now?
It's a few % off ath in a softish market. Nothing to see as far as I'm concerned. Show me a share that doesn't go up and down
Why the drift down, is it due to continuing sell off by family/friends/employees or something else? I'm starting to feel a little uncomfortable.
Yes, and possibly a bit more:

“As a result, for the full year ending 31 March 2022, the Board expects revenue to be ahead of current consensus forecasts and adjusted profit to be in line with consensus forecasts. Strong recruitment during the period has increased headcount to 2,409 as at 31 August 2021 (31 March 2021: 2,024).”

Positive update and another acquisition.
"You will get high returns,
when the Belfast Child sings again".

I think that's a good point "What my head can't deal with here".
I think this is the issue since there's an emotional reaction rather than a rational reaction... it's a form of cognitive dissonance.

All a high PE means, and believe me 50 is not high in my experience, in essence is that you are buying growth more numbers of years ahead, or at a faster rate, than other more lowly rated stocks so that you expect the PE to adjust to the EPS in the foreseeable future. Strangely, this is where "past performance" IS a good "guide to future performance" in contradiction to the usual warning mantra and provides a rational base line for growth (ie execution risk is dramatically reduced).

Of course the risks are that that growth performance tails-off and, certainly, in time it will end but those "whiffs of disappointment" apply to all stocks, don't they?
In my experience, from the Dotcom era, this risk is mitigated by growth investing since, when it ends, having gained a few 100% will you be worried at a 50% loss, or hopefully less, from the top? Surely enough time to exit? The upside reward far outweighs the downside risk.

The major risk, 'tho with these stocks currently is not their micro (business) performance but macro interest rate risks.
After all, what is the Discount Factor to apply in valuation when sovereign interest rates are 0% or negative? And what happens when that changes?

Run the slide rule over a minnow in the same sector.

Just read the Annual report.

Triad Group PLC

They have plans and more importantly cash, to do what’s been achieved here over the last 6 years.

We all have very different approaches to investment.

What my head can’t deal with here, is any possible whiff of disappointment at any stage going forward. ( Any stock on a PE of 50).

That does not mean it’s expensive though so long as the growth shows up.

Good luck and we’ll done.

sunshine today
Indeed, price, and price action, are the signals.

"Top choppers"... love it... hahaha.
(I own CRDA and accumulated a few weeks ago and "top choppers" were described as "smart" investors when they thought a P/E of 37x was expensive! Besides, there are growth stocks in the US that trade at P/Es in the 100's times so its all relative).

It should be logically clear that if you buy a good growth stock (compounder) you are always likely to be buying at a top. This seems to elude some "growth" investors but maybe I'm missing the essence of the price action in a growth stock. Who knows!

Yep I'll keep riding this trend until it ends. There will be endless analysis to sell, naysaying, top choppers, too much PE and all the normal reasons to bail but in the end only one thing pays and matters and that is price
Good chart showing the 'stickiness' of the KNOS business...
Long time from I have posted- going back to 2015/16 when the share price was just a twinkle in our eyes. How time zooms in and what a share this has been. I think I said it many years ago.
Look at the Management & Directors - still top class.
Institutions buyers as opposed to sellers.
Cash rich in a niche market with barriers to entry.
High P/E historic, results should hopefully bring that back a fair amount.
Look at the Directors sales over the years - small in relation to their total holdings.
Recent sale is by a connected party, we have no idea what it was for, could be tax, could be a string of properties- it’s none of our business all we need to concern ourselves with is the FD is still in situ with a shed load of stock. He has a fine reputation built up at Galen and now at Kainos. Galen was an interesting story and if any of you are N Ireland Investors will likely know the story. I see no reason to have any fear over this small sale.
Investor or punter- 2 different animals
I recall seeing posts not long ago saying the stock was overvalued. Sometimes the “Wee Notion” theory works. Covid has been a total catastrophe for the world however it has accelerated the business model for Kainos by a few years as many corporates and government are using them for transformation and efficiency.
I haven’t a clue if market makers still exist. They used to read these bulletin boards. They had many ways of shaking the tree and weeding out a few sellers or enticing a few buyers depending on how they were running their position and book.
Sometimes it’s fear and greed that drive the markets.
I’m a bit rusty on ‘closed periods’ when directors, senior personnel can sell or buy- maybe these recent sales had to do with entering one of these periods, who knows and who really cares.
It’s a good company, I’m not an employee or an ex -employee just someone who wants to make a few quid for retirement.
On the opening day you could have bought this stock @ 180p about 5/6 years ago.
On that note I will disappear for another 5 or 6.
As ever folk have different timescales, level of risk and patience. We all have access to charts and research so we all must make our own decision and calls.

Bell ringing moment to sell, when a director does.
One week to trading update.
Not surprising it’s profitable since it deals with government, commercially incompetent, and the NHS, managerially incompetent.

My investment case is that it’s taking my taxpayer money and making a handsome profit from the rent.
Looking for £28 by mid-2022 so that I can pay my green energy bills.

Bloody hell, can't it slow down a bit to let me buy some more. I hate these verticals.
Two weeks to trading update.
director selling a chunk
Trading update in less than 3 week's time...

FY22 interim trading update - 1 September 2021
