boadicea: The market has absorbed a significant sale (1.02% of the issue) with relatively little difficulty - i.e. little damage to the share price Given the size of the private holding and the elevation of the share price in recent times, I would reasonably expect that it is quite likely a prudent rebalancing of a portfolio rather than an indication of any lack of confidence. It will be interesting to see how a possible test of the 1000p support zone progresses.
smokybenchod: Not sure it’s going under 9 as trading ahead of expectations announcement again this morning. Should hopefully push through 10 now. My best investment by far as I’ve held since IPO. I’ve lost track of the number of ahead announcements now! Whilst I think it’s great I do worry that the market will severely mark down the share price with the next in line with expectations announcement as beat seems to be always expected now.
mfhmfh: Looks like share price still in the rising channel but only just
sigod: 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!
toyin: 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
kenmitch: 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.
velod: What's astonishing about this re-rating rise is that it's continuing to rise WHILST THE SHARE PRICE IS IN EX DIVIDEND mode! Extraordinary! . . . Be a long time before you see another share, rise this strongly after it enters XD. . . . Candlesticks are hot-to-trot and hotter than ever for SCT. Only momentum indicators are warning of being extremely overbought - but the market appears not to care. 410p? That can't be right, can it??? . . . PE is high now @ PE21 but seen worse with no ill effect. Only the momentum indicators are showing 'overbought' and as good as saying: Take cover! . . . Everything else has gone loco for SCT. . . . Market can't get enough of it. I keep saying it can't last but realise I've now been relegated to the position of the proverbial 'Broken Clock' Attendant.
noirua: Getting close to the 350p peak hit twice in the last 16 months, ignoring the spike to 380p in June last year. General range was 280p - 350p. Should be a lot more to come but always difficult to know what value for results is built into the share price and how many speculators are holding a bit too much stock.
igoe104: 2 cheap technology small-caps for 2017. Softcat Softcat (LSE: SCT) is a provider of IT infrastructure to the corporate and public sectors. The £590m market cap company provides organisations with datacentre, networking and security solutions and provides the services to design, implement, support and manage these solutions. Although Softcat only listed on the London Stock Exchange in November 2015, the company has been in existence for over 20 years, growing significantly in this time. In the last five years alone, revenue has more than tripled from £219.2m in FY2011 to £672.4m in FY2016 and the impressive growth is forecast to continue, with City analysts pencilling-in revenue of £744.4m and £813.0m for the next two years. The stock enjoyed a strong yet volatile run immediately after floating, rising from 240p to around 380p, however the Brexit result caused investors to panic and the shares were sold-off heavily. Softcat now trades at just under the 300p mark and at this price, the shares trade on a forward looking P/E ratio of 15.1, which seems relatively low given the company's growth history. Softcat also has appealing dividend prospects, with the company rewarding its shareholders last year with regular dividends of 5.3p as well as a generous special dividend of 14.2p. Analysts anticipate regular dividends of 10.3p per share for FY2017, a yield of 3.5%. Although Brexit could potentially affect earnings, I believe that demand for cyber security and data storage services will remain robust in the coming years, and management recently stated that the company was off to a good start in 2017. After a 20% share price drop in the last six months, Softcat appears to offer broad exposure to the IT sector at a reasonable valuation
shareholder7: I think softcat would look cheap at 250 and might attract a US company that what's to get into the UKMight be the best bet now for this share to move as company is not making much attempt to correct the share price with any positive news
