Bought in this morning after a very strong statement, probably one of the more upbeat statements I have seen for a while. Growing accelerating with healthy cash levels and a progressive dividend policy is a nice combination.

And to think that as recently as 21 March some commentators were trying it on by suggesting the company was hinting at a profit warning (see #321).

Yeah, FST was small for me too. SCT is my largest holding so I am very happy today, it does seem to have these random drops (like last week) but I am not going to be shaken out of my holding here on no news.

From IR This morning one of the analysts that follows us, Jefferies, published an updated note. Their previous rating (published on the 6th of February 2018) was Buy with a price target of £6.00. Obviously since then our share price has moved beyond this. Today they have upped the price target to £6.90 but lowered the rating to Hold. We have released no new news today and will be publishing our Q3 trading update next Wednesday (the 23rd). Historically we have not included any numbers in our Q1 and Q3 trading updates. Thanks

The price today is where it was about 5 weeks ago. It dropped 13% on 20-3-18 shortly before the Hellawell sale on 28-3-18. The company is quite highly rated and these drops feel like the market testing the resolve of holders. For me its a long term hold as long as the underlying dynamics in the business remain on their positive trajectory. A quality operation, such as this seems to be, will always ultimately get a fair valuation from the market, particularly now has good visibility with a market cap greater than £1BN.

Alliance blames it on profit not keeping up with revenue ie admin costs. But head count is going up because of expansion. None of them have a clue. Bought the dip. All the best

I guess people are entitled to read all sorts of things into statements but to call this a "mild profit warning" is a bit of a stretch. Recruitment will continue during the second half as we continue to build scale to address what is still a very large opportunity for further organic growth in our domestic market. We are benefiting from strong market demand for all our offerings and from all our major customer segments The Board is confident of meeting its expectations for the full year

1452 GMT - Softcat's outlook comments are to blame for the company's share drop, as its half-year results are strong, AJ Bell Investment Director Russ Mould says. The information-technology supplier said that it has some important months ahead and cautioned that macro-economic factors relating to Brexit may hit customer appetite to invest. "This almost amounts to a mild profit warning and for a company like Softcat, which was previously trading on a lofty valuation, even the possibility of a worse than expected performance is enough to drive investors to the exit door," Mr. Mould says. Shares fall 12% to 598 pence. One view of why the price drop.

I sold half a while back feeling it might be getting ahead of the game. In fact it has done very well and today's sell off is probably more to do with lack of a special div (never likely at interims) than assessment of future trading prospects. All rather unfair but to be expected.

Little top up this morning, while they are on "sale". Not many companies out there generating free cash flow at strong growth rates. Everyone seems to be looking for parabolic growth, however, this will do nicely. B

Yup, annoyed I missed the chance to take advantage in the dip in CCC after the results.
