financeguru: amazing just how many big short positions are being disclosed right now .... not surprising the share price could not make any traction ... still I am happy to be out and with a profit!!!
curriedquaker: I’m talking about Sophos, if you chart the daily movements, the majority, nor all, daily swings start either down and then recovery, or rise and then fall back. I’m a long term holder and have averaged down on occasions such as today, but also day trade, when there is less violent swings in share price. For example if Monday starts with a significant price fall, down 2% or 3%, I’ll buy and sell once I’ve made a 3% - 5% profit, and vice versa. It doesn’t happen every day and I lose out approximately 3 days out if 10, but again the other 7 days. You don’t get the daily price swings Sophos has been experiencing with other shares in the FTSE 350, but please do your own research. There is money to be made in this one.
its the oxman: Surely no need for BoD to comment on share price. Fall is hardly unexplained and clearly due to market taking a view on the results. Things may change in days ahead but clearly not as good as some hoped.
smith76: Lol indeed gorilla, it's amazing when the share price goes down the trolls that come out to play. It's like being at school again! The share price has effectively gone back a year. I love this share it's definitely a feisty one :)
greenrichard: Has someone hacked the share price
bocase: Because the share price is up today, the press coverage tomorrow is likely to be positive (reporters like to be right), therefore I think we can expect another small rise tomorrow before any serious profit taking. Very easy to sell too soon but no one goes bust taking a profit but they do miss out on the power of compounding. Good luck whatever your decisions.
thx1: Sophos results are out on 17th May If they have profitability and cashflow improvements to match the sales growth in their interim update then the share price will go up whatever the charts say. 5.40 looks like a resistance level, it may get broken before 17th May or it may not. If profits are improving then I'd suggest getting back to Jan-18 levels of 5.70 seems likely or even above 6.00. However, if it gets above 6 then beware the risk of APAX selling off the remainder of their stake. Any bad news on the profit side and this will be back to 4.25 as there price is based on a forward pe of 25 that assumes they can make an operating profit of at least £100m ($140m) on their forecast $1bn revenues in 2-3 years time. To get to the target price of 750p this needs to be more like $180m operating profit (or potentially the city would accept $180m of adjusted profit excluding items like share based payments to employees)

3rd eye: SOPH Sophos.....Hargreaves Lansdown tip 4 of 5 for the top 2018...... Investment idea #4 Sophos Group - benefit from the cyber threat A string of high-profile hacks mean the consequences of not investing in cyber security are all too evident. Perhaps no surprise then, that companies are scrambling to shore up their cyber defences. Sophos Group, a company providing software to protect small and medium-sized businesses, should benefit from this. The group uses a network of over 30,000 independent partners to sell and distribute its products. Over 100m users in 150 countries now rely on it for IT security and Sophos says the market is worth in the region of £40bn, and growing quickly. It is the only company to offer a high standard of both network and end user protection. This means customers benefit from a joined up service under a centralised system. Contracts run for up to five years, retention rates are impressive and last year Sophos generated an average of 29% more business from contracts up for renewal. At present, the company is focused on investing in this opportunity rather than paying dividends, meaning the prospective yield is just 0.8%. With impressive growth, Sophos's potential hasn't gone unnoticed by the market though. The shares have enjoyed a strong run recently, and trade on a premium valuation of 85 times expected earnings. We’re not put off by the high rating, but it certainly adds a layer of risk. If the company fails to deliver on the market’s high expectations, the share price could suffer. Part of the reason the rating is so high is that accounting convention means Sophos's near-term earnings look artificially low. The costs of winning a contract are accounted for up-front, but the revenues are spread over the life of the deal. For example, the group generated $133m of free cash flow last year, compared to adjusted profits of $38m. We often look at a company and say profits look great, but where is the cash? With Sophos, in the short-term at least, it's the other way round. Given the choice, this is how we'd like it. After all, it's not without justification they say cash is king.
mj19: Oxfordshire-based cyber security firm Sophos Group(LSE: SOPH). The mid-cap firm has been enjoying the spotlight ever since the WannaCry ransomware attack in May which hit organisations across the globe, including our very own National Health Service.Cyber welfareQuite understandably, the importance of cyber security has since come to the nation's attention with Sophos and its peers likely to benefit from increased cyber defence spending by small businesses all the way up to national governments. Consequently, the group's share price has been setting new all-time highs over the past few weeks with the shares now trading at almost double their 2015 IPO price of 225p.There's no doubt that firms such as Sophos will see an increase in demand in the coming years as more and more of our data is held 'securely' up in the cloud as well as on our own personal devices. The long-term outlook is indeed excellent and the market has certainly taken notice of the invaluable contribution that these firms can make to our cyber welfare. But let's not get too carried away. At 104 times forecast earnings for FY2018 the share price now looks very overstretched, which would lead me to place a 'hold' rating on the in-favour-but-rather-expensive stock.
