Negotiated trades, dealt en mass after the bell on Friday, before the Interims due 28th March, with a spike in the share price, very high daily volume, and following a new CFO appointment, all look very interesting.

shareholder 7 - Liberum don't share your view about costs, but who takes notice of brokers? They seem to be suggesting that hardware updates will slow down, which may be an understandable viewpoint, but realistic?

Dave, looking at FY '23 and '24 consensus there does not appear to be much growth forecast - may be adjusted following today.

UK about to take a significant macro hit but SCT market arguably more resilient.

Previous multiples were in a ZIRP environment and easier to justify,
post ZIRP leading to multiple compression across the market.

On a very quick first look this seems fairly valued with so much else
getting cheaper, however the record is strong, no debt ..etc.

Lack of understanding it's not a tech share This will pick up once the management has done it's rounds later but great pension share if you can wait

What people don't realise is this company is a trader and has a unique sales model by recruiting graduates and paying them on Gross profit.That ensures a very competent work force and Softcats competition don't do this. So it's a sales model that makes them different Everyone will need office and essential software so sales will continue on the up The more people they hire the more margin they make that's why employee numbers are key Great share to put away, take the dividend and wait for it to hit new highs as it will

Agree. On a PE of 20x is back to 2018 lows when eps was half what it is now. As a comparison, the share price peaked in 2018 at about 845, so double that for now is 1690p. This will recover when growth / Tech returns to favour, but until then?.

Agree, do think their update will be positive and the share price will reflect that but macro and out of favour tech will drag it back down.I've been watching a cloud computing etf (WCLD) and SCT has followed the same decline (although the etf has dropped a lot more from its 52w high). May go for the etf rather than SCT at some point, will see.Should have sold up a lot sooner but hindsight and all that.

Strange world Dico as GDP is my best performing share and bailing me out. Sometimes patience pays off However I have been investing back into softcat at these levels as this share is just marked down my MM and not for trading reasons They have consistently performed qtr on qtr but as you will see there few comments on these boards and lots of shares held by big trusts etc so not a lot of interest I would expect the share to rise on 25th and then slowly drift down with the market again but this is a very very good company and a long term hold

Shocking how the share price has fallen over the year. Does the Company bods know how to run a tech company I wonder ...
