someuwin: 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'..." https://news.sky.com/story/digital-driving-licences-to-be-introduced-in-bid-to-make-transport-fairer-greener-and-more-efficient-12410096
davr0s: 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
sogoesit: 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!
davr0s: 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
someuwin: Good chart showing the 'stickiness' of the KNOS business...
chuckster1: 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.
davr0s: Haven't looked at valuations at all for years and I do just fine. People tend to wheel the argument out when a share price goes higher than they were expecting or they sold out only to see it go higher. Like on Dechra (lol) where the same argument has been made
tole: https://citywire.co.uk/funds-insider/news/the-expert-view-dunelm-kainos-burberry-barratt-and-provident-financial/a1530905Kainos has large-cap potential, says SVMMid-cap software company Kainos (KNOS) has the potential to become much bigger, according to SVM's Margaret Lawson and Colin McLean.The Citywire A-rated managers of SVM UK Growth have invested 2.8% of the £190m portfolio into Kainos, which has benefited from the pandemic push into cloud computing.'The group was heavily involved in supporting the NHS response,' they said in their latest factsheet.'It is well-positioned in the public sector, and healthcare in particular, supporting digital transformation with innovative solutions.'Kainos should also continue to benefit as the UK government spends more on digital transformation and corporates move to cloud-based solutions. Moreover, the company has 'strong potential' in the US where it has a small presence.'Kainos has a strong balance sheet, good cash conversion, robust pipeline and significant backlog of contracted revenues,' said the managers.'It is currently mid-cap, dominant in some of the segments it services, but has potential to grow to be a large-cap business.'Shares in Kainos closed up 0.3%, or 5p, at £15.75 on Wednesday.
saurish: Well one has to understand that market is a forward looking mechanism and KNOS is fully valued for the results it has produced. Looking at the growth outlook it looks good to me but may not look good to some punters who wanted an exceedingly positive outlook statement for the premium KNOS commands. The TP cut does not fill those with weaker conviction with much enthusiasm either! However, I see it as an exceedingly good company with great management and still more room to grow and therefore have added at these levels. DYOR
glenowen: It means "fully valued" or "overvalued". I have been tracking Kainos for a while and while I think it looks a very decent company with good prospects, I certainly wouldn't buy it at this sort of price - particularly after the 100% plus increase in recent months. I might be wrong of course, but I can't see the share price continue to rocket in the near future. Although, I should say that I regret taking exactly the same view on Games Workshop 12 months ago, when the share price was about £50 (compared to over £100 now!)
