w this on Citywire today.
Appears people have read it given slippage of last few days.
I do not see myself as selling or buying in the coming days
IT and support services group NCC (NCC) faces plenty of headwinds and needs to prove it can make sustainable improvements, says Shore Capital.

Analyst Martin O’Sullivan retained his ‘hold’ recommendation and a ‘fair value’ target price of 120p on the Citywire Elite Companies plus-rated stock, which was trading at 122p on Friday.

He said the shares are ‘materially below historical norms’ at a 22x price/earnings but ‘nevertheless relatively generous given the near-term headwinds and lack of visibility on a return to confident growth’.

‘On the plus side, the group’s “Next Chapter” strategy is well underway, albeit it is too early to assess its ultimate level of success,’ said O’Sullivan.

‘The challenges have been laid bare, and we believe evidence of a sustainable improvement in operational and financial momentum will be needed to create the conditions for sustainable upside in the group’s stock.’

I couldn't bring myself to look at the price after 8am. But better than I had feared.

I see Richard Griffiths has popped up with a 4% share holding.

He's usually quite shrewd.

I have been here since 2017 and have an in price of 122,which would have been lower if I had sold more in the heady days of end 2020.
My holdings in cyber security shares have fallen this year following the takeover of Ecsc and I live in hope that someone will take my other cyber security holding CCS out of its misery but I do not see that happening. In the wider IT sector I will soon say goodbye to BLTG when that takeover goes through and for me SGE is fully priced at the moment.
Thus looking at what to do with NCC.
I am going on the basis that the final dividend will be pruned from the 3.15p of the last year's so no reason to look at the yield on these reduced prices.
I see the reports in a site called Tech Crunch that following the February lay offs, as of this month there are further lay offs.
I note the comments about the strategic review and a possible spinning off of the software resilience division and Peel Hunt earlier this year mooting a £240m price. Given the £300m odd mar cap that would be great news.
I note that there is no big shareholder who could force change. As far as I can work out LGEN with 7.13pc is the largest but I may be wrong. None of the larger ones have sold off big time in the last months though Montanero and Schroders have slimmed a tad.
While no expert in the sector my gut tells me that nothing sufficiently stand out about the cyber security business that we can expect a take out at a significant premium.
I know in this industry it is difficult to value on pe but I go on the basis that the eps last year of 7.4p will not be repeated nor that of H1 of 2.4p.
I may add a very few but the possibility of a corporate action means no desire to sell.
FWIW, which in this case is not much, the marcap and book net worth as of the interims are pretty much the same.

I think that´s the point Imperialist. What do NCC offer that´s not offered by dozens of competitors?

Valuing NCC is quite hard. The Escrow division is very valuable. Other stuff looks very average (how can they have been racked up all that debt on mediocre acquisitions?)

Posted at 31/3/2022 15:57 by tole FTSE 350 technology stock that I think could soar in 2022!Fool contributor Daniel Moore has his sights set on a technology stock in the FTSE 250 that could boost his portfolio this year.Daniel MoorePublished 31 March, 3:11 pm BSTNCCEnvironmental technology concept.Image source: Getty ImagesIn the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, national defence and security has become of utmost concern subsequent to a long period of neglection. Energy interdependence and cyber threats are of particular importance. A technology stock with good fundamentals, a diversified revenue model and significant exposure to the aforementioned sectors is NCC Group (LSE: NCC).Energy and cyber securityNCC offers cyber solutions for potential risks relating to software and cloud computing, supply-chain risks and threat intelligence among many others. Its clientele includes Sennen, data operator for London Array (one of the world's largest offshore windfarms), National Grid and NatWest. Considering energy security is now an extremely high priority for Western European nations, this is certainly a business that I would like to be in. Rishi Sunak's Spring statement references a minimum increase of £1bn (3%) to defence spending this year and a focus on the mitigation of Russian exposure. I believe NCC is well positioned to gain more private and public business contracts should this be the case; however, there is a certain reliance on energy security being of huge importance in the future.Consistency is keyOut of the entire FTSE 350 index, NCC has generated the most consecutive years of turnover growth at 17. Exacerbating the impressiveness of this statistic is the fact that NCC Group has the smallest market capitalisation out of the entirety of the constituents at just £581.8m. Even with macroeconomic periods of deterioration - such as 2008 and 2020 - and businesses being strapped for cash, NCC has still expanded operations, demonstrating that its services and products are of a high quality and are a necessity for corporate security.The past performance is excellent; however, the market price of a security can be erased overnight if the future expectations are not robust. Unsurprisingly, NCC's forecasts look brighter than ever with its annual turnover growth projected at 16% this year alongside cash flow growth of 23%. What makes the valuation even more appealing is the fact that NCC ranks first out of nine companies in the computer services subsector when analysing the companies' PEG ratio, which is the price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio relative to earnings growth.Directors want inIn financial markets, directors and executives of a company can sell shares for a variety of different reasons such as tax efficiency or additional income, but there tends to be only one incentive for them to buy shares in their company, and that is because they expect the price to rise meaningfully.Back in January 2019, the directors at NCC bought approximately £185,000 of shares in the company at £1.30. Between then and September 2021, the share price rose 167%. Clearly, the directors know what they are doing regarding the performance of their own business.Since then, the NCC share price has fallen by 43.4% with no tangible negative news or downturn in business. In October the directors executed over £40,000 in options and purchased over £50,000 in stock at £2.16 per share. Today's price represents a 12% discount to that.Apr '21Jul '21Oct '21Jan '22Jul '21Jan '22200250300350Zoom ?Mar 30, 2021?Mar 26, 2022Highcharts.comAssuming business carries on as normal with the rise in defence spending, NCC could have a great opportunity on its hands. Only time will tell if it can execute upon it. Personally, I'm holding off just for now to see how the situation in Ukraine develops and whether cyber and energy security remain topics of public interest.One Killer Stock For The Cybersecurity SurgeCybersecurity is surging, with experts predicting that the cybersecurity market will reach US$366 billion by 2028 - more than double what it is today!And with that kind of growth, this North American company stands to be the biggest winner.Because their patented "self-repairing" technology is changing the cybersecurity landscape as we know it...We think it has the potential to become the next famous tech success story.In fact, we think it could become as big... or even BIGGER than Shopify.
Posted at 25/1/2022 19:16 by tole a metaverse security stockCyber crime is already a huge risk for anyone (or any company) that is active online. In my opinion, these risks are only going to get bigger as the metaverse evolves. Anti-virus protection won't be enough. Businesses will need a much broader range of security-related services.One company that already operates in this area is NCC (LSE: NCC). This £680m, Manchester-based business provides a full range of security and "risk mitigation" services for businesses. These include security assessments, training, incident response and compliance certification. The big risk facing NCC, of course, is that it could fall victim to cyber crime itself. I'd imagine this might destroy its reputation as a trusted advisor.The NCC share price has pulled back since the start of this year, in line with the wider tech slump and many of the risks affecting tech stocks are the same for NCC. I reckon this could be a buying opportunity. NCC shares now trade on 18 times forecast earnings, with a 2.1% dividend yield. That doesn't seem expensive to me, for a business that's expected to deliver earnings growth of around 15% for the current year. I'd consider buying at this level.
