edjge2 - Yes indeed because I don't like new highs as they always restart a bit lower, but I am still present for the future.

BBC News, 22/09/2017; 12.30 pm. Hijacked software used to target tech giants Hackers who booby-trapped widely used security software also used their malware to infiltrate machines at tech firms, suggests analysis. Evidence that other companies had been compromised came to light as Cisco researchers probed how attackers got at the popular CCleaner programme. Millions of people downloaded a Windows version that hackers had laced with malicious code. Cisco said the attackers were seeking valuable intellectual property. Cleaning up Last week CCleaner creator Piriform revealed that attackers had managed to place a hijacked copy of version 5.33 that works on Windows on some download servers. The booby-trapped code was available for about a month between August and September, Millions of people downloaded the compromised version of CCleaner but damage was limited because whoever created it had not updated it to include elements that could scan machines and steal data. However, Cisco said its analysis suggested that attackers had taken that extra step on machines at tech firms they had managed to infiltrate. Hi-tech giants including Cisco, Intel, Google, Samsung and Microsoft were among the 20 or so companies believed to have been hit in this way. "These new findings raise our level of concern about these events, as elements of our research point towards a possible unknown, sophisticated actor," wrote the Cisco researchers. Cisco said it was likely that a lot of other firms had been hit by whoever was behind the sophisticated and wide-ranging attack. It recommended that anyone cleaning up after finding they had been compromised restore machines from backup as it was not clear what other code the attackers had installed on those computers. It said it was still analysing the code to find out exactly what it did. Cisco said it was not yet clear who carried out the sophisticated attack on CCleaner and the other technology firms.

Why ever is this company paying a dividend when it is still lossmaking??

thanks fuji. I will look further at it in the coming days, but only had about 30 seconds to spare earlier, hence the opening question.

grabber - Most Internet companies start with losses due to development costs. For example Amazon is still lossy. For Sophos, now that they have their customer base well established and re-occurring income and new customer starting to flow in they have to upgrade their revenue and they may do it next November. They will also be making a profit this year, earlier than expected and their revenue target for 2020 is $1 billion with a growth of 20% year on year. If one adds the sharp increase in cyber crime and whole states using cyber attacks to destabilise others (China, Korea etc.), the growth in this sector in the next 5 - 10 years will be tremendous and difficult to quantify. So we are buying into a sector with huge potential for real growth. The customer business model of Sophos is a bit similar to that of SAGE as some of its income base is repetitive.

Looking here for the first time, so apologies if I'm asking summat that's recently been answered and I've not read yet; Bearing in mind how long it has been doing what it does and the wide customer base, and its £2.5bn+ valuation - what is the reason for it being lossmaking at present?

Fujii99: Yes I like the sector for exactly those reasons and the shares have momentum and look like they are going to increase revenues significantly so I am happy. I know I am a bit late to this party but arrived at IQE early so quite content to buy in at this level. Already in profit anyway!! Yes I think it is certainly in the sector where takeovers are going to play an increasing part.

bocase - I am convinced this technology has a bright future and SOPH will be at the forefront of protection - if not taken over by the big boys in this area or even by the likes of Microsoft et al. Wars will be won and banks, airport or power stations can be frozen by cyber attacks. So without protection anything strategic in an economy of a country becomes almost naked... Thus why SOPHOS will play a key role in this new challenges, meaning more orders leading to higher share price ..

The announcement today about cloud technology will make Sophos one of the biggest security company in the world. Cloud alone is valued at $330 billion. This is a hidden gem that will reward those who can hold it till 2020. With huge revenues due to ever bigger cyber security demand, I can see the stock hitting £20 in two years time. I feel this will beat expectations next November.

Watch out for the cyberhackers who phone and tell you out of the blue that you have a virus on your computer. They spell big trouble . I know from very bitter experience

Yes, but it is nice to have your computer problems sorted at home rather than having to go to some shop who will then send your computer away for repair for some three weeks.

Bull flag on recent consolidation? Needs another 3-5% to breakout.
