epo001: If investors behave like headless chickens reacting to misinformation peddled by uninformed or hostile pundits then it could easily happen, perhaps Northern are manipulating the share price for their own purposes. Suggesting that a company which sells subscriptions is over-reliant on pre-payments is on the surface of it like criticising Wetherspoons for being over-reliant on people walking in through the door. Saying there are similarities to MicroFocus without enumerating what those similarities are is merely spreading FUD.
mayers: Too volatile for me I'm afraid and when I see an enthusiastic poster welcoming a fall to £2 and then five minutes later talking about a 20% increase in share price, it is time for me to be looking elsewhere. No doubt there will be the anticipated reaction.
tsmith2: Mirabaud analyst Neil Campling called the share price reaction "insane", noting that billings in the third quarter were "technically" lower than in the first half, but still within forecasts."Reason for weakness [are] probably due to unlevered FCF [free cash flow] of $22.2m in Q3 which around 20 per cent below consensus, but this is due to the timing of investment in new product releases. And, ironically, these same new product releases will likely drive a very strong Q4 billings," he said.Martin O'Sullivan at Shore Capital said: "Full year guidance on billings, cash EBIT margin and unlevered FCF are all unchanged, and we believe Sophos is well placed to deliver against expectations in Q4, underpinned by the recent launch of Intercept X deep learning and XG Firewall v17."

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.
davemac3: fuji, you don't know what the share price will be next year
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.

dan_the_epic: Doubt the cyberattack will help the share price; certainly didn't Friday close or help the US stocks The big question here is what happens with Apax. Long term I like this stock and look forward to next week
