One or two of us sold from the 390/400+ area on the way up. I said at the time I was just profit taking and longer term would fully expect to become a holder of Softcat again. . . . Just wondering did anyone who took profits at that time ever rebuy when the share price started retracing below 400? . . . 349p would tempt me back in :)

This bit might also explain some of the share price fall. "We saw no particular evidence of change to market dynamics, whether due to the beginning of the Brexit process or the upcoming General Election." "No particular evidence," suggests some doubt about this. Without adding the word "particular" I doubt the share would have fallen as far. "No evidence" would have been taken as no risk of any Brexit or election effect on the business. "Particular" gives a hint of uncertainty about that. Election result looks a certain Tory win, so that just leaves Brexit where they might have misgivings, but see no signs of that YET.

I thought the statement was positive: 1. 'Customer demand has been robust and costs were also well-managed during the Period' robust and costs well-managed sound positive 2. 'The Board remains confident that the Company will deliver a strong result for the full year' strong sounds positive 3. 'Demand for IT infrastructure from both corporate and public sector customers remained strong during the Period' strong again mentioned 4. 'it's pleasing to see the breadth of our offering continue to grow in areas where there is both commercial opportunity and customer demand." grow, opportunity, demand sound positive However, CEO stepping down may be contributing to the current negative market reaction. A definite hold for me. All IMHO.

Interesting psychological reaction to an in-line statement. Clearly there had been some unrealistic over-anticipation of what it was likely to contain although it is not clear why that should be. Possibly some were reading more than was justified into the strength of the share price over the past 6 months, e.g that it might be due to some 'informed' opinion. So prospects remain broadly and happily as outlined in the half-year report. I had already reduced my position (too early as it turned out) but if the current weakness extends a little further I may be able to restore it advantageously.

Sold the rest of my holding as 455p target is close. Looks likely to move sideways for awhile - that could become protracted.

If you're a short term trader yes next week could be important. Personally couldn't care less if it went back to 3.50 next week as I'm holding these long term. As long as eps in annual accounts shows progress and good cash flow and no debt is maintained. I've learned the hard way to follow fundamentals in my long term holds rather than share price

Just a smidgen of a hint, that things may be up for a change after Easter. Could be as little as a plateau or even just a brief pause; or maybe it turns out to be nothing at all. But if this 'hint' gathers pace then...... (Cue soundtrack to Jaws) . . . - How the day closes next Tuesday will be important for SCT.

I'm letting the winner run but with a trailing stop loss. So profit currently 42% with stop loss at 35%

46 consecutive quarters of revenue and profit growth! Techinvest says a special divi might paid come year-end. "Strong hold" is their stance

Sounds like a few of us are in the same boat.... but any profit should be celebrated and we should be grateful!I've been lucky with SCT. First bought at 280 shortly after they floated and sold at their first rise to 381. Bought it again and sold once more around 330 before the second retrace. Once more I bought in, held, received the special Dividend..... and then sold all my holding on 28th March at 396....Had I still been holding now I'd have another £1k or so. I'm not experienced enough to get it right, nor can I afford to lose out on such a good profit.So, yes I am gutted I'm not still holding, but very pleased with my result and very happy so many on here are doing so well. Cheers

I took some off the table at around 400p - now looks like it was probably a mistake. However, it has reduced my breakeven price to about 275p which gives me a reasonably comfortable margin of over 30%. I can always buy back if it retraces. I have only managed to find the top (within a few %) of a share a couple of times in many (too many) years. More often I sell on a boring plateau that turns out to be the stage for a further advance (TRI) ... or hang on only to be greeted by bad news (NCC!).
