Update quote - "The Board is therefore confident that full year results will now be slightly ahead of previous expectations."

I have worked similar figures as Valhamos for operating margins with slightly different results (e.g. they depend on whether one is using statutory or 'adjusted' values - both have their faults) and also whether updating for half year results. SCT produced ptp of 68M from revenue of 797M, 8.54% CCC produced ptp of 119M from revenue of 4350M, 2.74% .... so on that metric SCT is more than 3 times as profitable as CCC. It might be argued that CCC has correspondingly more room for improvement and might be bought on those grounds, while SCT is already very efficient and will be limited in ability to push margins much further. I don't know enough about either company to pass judgement on that. SCT does have a very good growth rate but will need to maintain it and the margins to justify its current valuation.

Take a look at EPS and CCC wins.

I hold neither at the moment but there is no doubt which is the better company. According to Sharelockholmes SCT's ROIC is 243% compared with CCC's 28%. SCT's operating margin is 6.5% compared with CCC's 2.5%.

DevonWood (450) - I think the difference is more or less justified by their different growth rates and balance sheets and possibly risk factors too. In particular compare their net debt figures. SCT looks an unusually clean and understandable operation which may appeal to the less sophisticated investor. Something is clearly giving it a premium rating and is causing me mild regret at having top-sliced it prematurely a couple of times. Overpriced (SCT) or a bargain (CCC) - only time will tell!

Compare the EPS to CCC. SCT overpriced or CCC a bargain!

Great results IMO: 'The results reflect the Company's continued ability to gain an increasing share of the market, delivering both very strong profit growth and excellent cash generation.' Operating profit up 40.4% Interim dividend up 36.4% Diluted EPS up 40.8% 'Added 620 new customers, with total customers up 6.5% (H1 2018: 597 / 6.7%)' 'Gross profit per customer growth of 18.7% (H1 2018: 14.5%)' 'The Company remains debt free with a cash balance of £52.8m'

Great results and market reaction! I particularly like the fact they only have 6 per cent of the market.

Excellent numbers although I suspect market will focus on outlook which has now gone from materially ahead to marginally ahead of expectations

You could be right there Trickyricky. I've been caught out quite a bit with some of my portfolio recently when trading updates have been announced, expecting big rises on good results only to be disappointed. However, as you say there is the possibility the results could be exceptional in which case I wouldn't rule out another significant spike in the share price. All will be revealed next week but whatever happens it's been quite a ride over the last couple of months!

Great rise from the recent lows. Given this, would not be surprised that it falls back on results, no matter how good they may be.

Now through 800 and looking really strong. Trading update was published on 9th January to cover the period up to the end of January so no reason to believe the results won't be anything but positive. Very tempted to load up on a few more. Good luck for next week everyone!

approaching 800p This from the trading update in January: 'As we approach the end of our first half, we are now materially ahead of where we expected to be at this stage of the year.' Results on 19th March.

It was an opportunity to buy yesterday The market makers don't know how to play this share. Computer Centre was down yesterday which might have pulled Softcat down as well. CC has big exposure to Europe so I don't think they are in the same market space.Consistent growth quarter on quarter with possible plans to open more offices and a great sales model, it will hit new highs eventuallyThe only think to pull this back is a general collapse of the market which could happen but for now enjoy the ride
