johnsoho: With the way the share price has behaved today one would have thought that this was an awful trading update......But it’s not !!!! Trading Update Kainos Group plc (KNOS), a leading IT provider, operating across two specialist business areas, Digital Services and its Workday Practice, today issues a trading update for the period from 1 April 2020 to date. Further to the 27 July 2020 trading update, trading in the period continues to be resilient across both business areas, supported by long-term customer relationships and diversified revenues across customers, end markets and geographic regions. As such, the Company expect results for the full year ending 31 March 2021 to be in line with consensus forecasts. Growth in Digital Services continues to be driven by demand within the NHS and Public Sector, where we continue to demonstrate our strength as a key supplier in the UK Government's digital transformation programme. Within the Workday Practice, we continue to benefit from the geographic spread of the business, securing significant new consulting contracts nationally and internationally. Smart, our Workday automated testing platform, continues to win new clients and drive very strong growth. Notwithstanding this strong performance, a robust pipeline and significant backlog, we remain mindful of the current economic disruption caused by Covid-19. We maintain a close dialogue with our customers and partners, and continue to pay careful attention to the impact that Covid-19 related disruption may have on them. The announcement of our results for the six months ending 30 September 2020 will be made on Monday 16 November 2020.
glenowen: You are a brave man, Gaffer, shorting this against such strong upward momentum. I see your point about the share price on the surface, being somewhat ahead of events. But, then, I thought that Games Workshop was overvalued at £55 just a few months ago and decided not to buy - a big mistake in hindsight.I was equally dubious about Kainos a few weeks back, on valuation grounds, at £7.50, but on the basis of the GW error, I took the plunge.I wont wish you luck, since I hope it soars to even more astronomical heights!
volsung: Fair play to KNOS for repaying their furlough money
montyhedge: I like Kainos, but it's priced to perfection. Crazily high p.e, any slip up or share sale by director would effect shareprice.
ali47fish: monty why are you so categorical- i havent checked the reason and maybe he has still skin in the game including other members of the board-knos has been prospering under covid helping the government
irishlass2: Still on a high p.e. Considering the impact of Covid and now a director selling. I want to buy some more but not at this price.
someuwin: Director sells £1m worth. (But they need to re-issue the RNS. He didn't sell at 8.648p, he sold at £8.648 - surely!) "The Company was notified on 8 June 2020, that Paul Gannon, Director, sold 116,500 ordinary shares in the Company at an aggregated price of 8.648p per ordinary share."
hahmedk: Hi AllHow far do you see current rise in share price. I brought some @ 800p after new year tip.
someuwin: Forget Bitcoin! I’d buy these cyber stocks in 2020 Rupert Hargreaves 9 January 2020 The rising price of Bitcoin over the past few weeks has likely caused some investors to contemplate buying the cryptocurrency. However, while the price of Bitcoin might have rallied recently, its value has been volatile over the longer term. With that in mind, here are two cyber stocks that appear to offer better long-term outlooks and have the potential to deliver rising share prices as their growth plans come to fruition. Kainos Digital services company Kainos (LSE: KNOS) stormed onto the stock market in 2015, and the enterprise hasn’t looked back since. Recent updates from the firm show its growth isn’t going to slow down any time soon. Since its IPO, the company’s earnings per share have grown at an annual rate of around 25%. Analysts are forecasting growth of 23% for 2020. The firm is complementing organic growth with acquisitions. For example, in November of last year, Kainos acquired Adaptive Insights, a financial and business planning software business which is part of Workday Inc, and Formulate, which supports customers in implementing Adaptive Insight’s software. These deals should help the company meet its growth targets. With nearly £40m of cash on the balance sheet, the firm has plenty of resources to complete other deals as well. The stock trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 43, which isn’t cheap. Still, the company’s historical earnings growth rate and City projections for next year suggest a similar rate of growth may be achievable over the long term, as the group’s bottom line benefits from its growing stable of businesses.
robow: KAINOS from Shares Magazine A desire to go digital is one thing that unites organisations both large and small. From ordering a pint in a pub via a phone app to calculating a tax return, plus a million more things, this is a multi-year transition that will separate winners from losers. Among those thriving from this structural growth trend is Belfast-based Kainos (KNOS) which helps large organisations transition their processes and operations into the 21st Century digital world. Kainos is one of the key IT expertise suppliers to UK Government departments, often writing bespoke tools and software services for the Cabinet Office, Home Office, Driver & Vehicle Licencing Agency (DVLA), Department for Transport, Land Registry and others. The company is also one of 35 global accredited installation providers for Workday, the $37bn US human resources and financial planning software platform. Kainos provides implementation and testing for users of Workday enterprise management tools. It also runs Evolve, an NHS IT system including things like electronic medical records that help streamline the service delivered to patients. One of the real attractions of Kainos is this multipaced, segmented model. It means as growth temporarily slows in one part of the business, the slack can be picked up elsewhere. This has been illustrated over the past couple of years. While Evolve has been muddling along due to years of austerity cuts biting into NHS budgets and investment spending, other parts of the business have been progressing at a blistering pace. In the year to 31 March 2019 its digital services drove revenue growth, up 69% to £132.6m, with momentum in both Workday implementation and on UK Government digital transformation despite parliamentary deadlock over Brexit concerns. If politicians are to be believed we are on the cusp of some of the largest healthcare and public sector digital services investment ever. That’s really exciting for Kainos and could unleash huge opportunities that could make current earnings forecasts look far too cautious. The high price-to-earnings multiple will worry some investors but we believe the premium is justified by Kainos’ high-quality track record and impressive cash dynamics. It has £42m on the books with no debt making the balance sheet as bulletproof as they come. SHARE PRICE: 718p MARKET CAP: £878m FORECAST EPS 2021: 18.9p
