Pleased I kept a chunk as I am convinced the share price will reach £10+ at some point by 2019/20 maybe earlier. It will also start delivering profit earlier than expected due to high demand of its products.

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.

I remember earlier in the year when Vin Murria was appointed non-exec director she bought 750,000 at 264p!!!. She has partly cashed in at 531p but still owns 307,272. Smart cookie. Q3 results on 8th Feb. IMHO share price not cheap but strong momentum so I'm a holder.

Any reason behind the successive directors sales ? Now almost half a million shares offloaded.

well cut above so looks better. Roll over not happening in states with all panic capital investment. States tipped a few cybersecurity firms to blow as massive gov investment there. States biz mainly here it seems.

down 20%, now wonder where the bounce will be. Cybersecurity a growth area. Big boys dropped holdings to 11% from 22. Might explain drop

If this continues, next resistance is 500p. But for long termers, these are only normal market blips.

Any thoughts on today's news to avoid cyber security software of Russion origin? Should be good for Sophos I would have thought.

hawaly. You should be looking at cash gen not profit here. Profit metrics pointless and you would conclude this is stupidly overvalued. On cash metrics, not so much

16:37:38 551.1927 350,000 O 548.0000 552.5000 Buy 2,081,408 1,866,808 16:35:21 548.5000 260,176 UT 548.0000 548.5000 Buy 1,731,408 .if these are the trades you're referring to....16/35/21 is a UT trade.....or uncrossing trade to settle/square the books.....so not a viable trade at all. 16/37/38....is more than likely a late reported trade....I cant tell whether its a buy or sell..you need to see the print,

The news being the two massive buys recorded after close? Ie C.£2m + £1.5m... I can’t find what else you could be referring to. The breaking Brexit implications & Bitcoin news don’t seem relate!

Yes I'm out, momentum is a great trade until that momentum dissipates. There have been a few other examples in the last few days where charts have stopped doing what they've been doing for the past few months. I'd bought the strong bounce off the 50ma a couple of weeks ago but once it had crossed back down through it, I exited the trade. Given the news in the last few mins on this Friday it will be interesting to see if the dip is bought next week. GLA.
