In this enviroment, results could be very good for this quarter, reported in approx 2 weeks, and the next few to come. Funds under management , at 20 billion, are at an all time high. Last time they were near 20 billion share price was 4.80!!!! With high taxation round the corner and low interest rates, stj will be very busy and profitable. Short to med term could be very positive.

could just be Lloyds managing to sell stake.... and possibly that the acquirer of Lloyds stake might want to buy the whole business????? Who knows... it is fundies that count and this appears to be massively geared to a rising market..slap

Next results will be very good but something else is driving up the share price on relatively thin trade. Barclay's running the rule over this having looked at Standard Life and passed over ?

riskblue & Stoaty - put simply these kind of stocks are simply leveraged plays on the equity markets.... people are rushing to equities given a number of reasons 1) Inflation threat and equities are an inflation hedge as real assets 2) Stock market recovery - nothing makes people want to own something like its price going up 3) Low interest rates on savings accounts THUS St James will get loads of commissions and fees from everyone running back to equities.... important to note typically they get a % of their clients assets so if the markets go up 30% their annual fee goes up likewise... I wanted to buy some but only bought PM and got a poor price.... whether it is a poor price in the long-run we shall see..... Slap

I think it is just that stj are so cheap and this quarter could be one of the best , market conditions being favorable ,funds under management growth and so on.

very interesting movement today. Are there rumours about what Lloyds are intending to do with SJP? Something is clearly causing the interest. Must be good news.

Just come across this when saw their advert 6.2% on deposit a/cs in their local office window. Thought would look at co. behind. Can anybody give me a short intro to company and future prospects (as you see them - iyoo) Ssords

LLOY believes that STJ provides a direct threat to its in house wealth management offering and will have to decide which brand to keep hold of - only one wins the true Wealth Management badge - and thats STJ. LLOY have never really had a handle on the HNW investor. LLOY may well sell - 221p I believe is a target price for them to sell at. STJ internally has suffered (as with all investment/ wealth/ fund managers) with its funds under management being reduced due to market conditions but they've had a very strong recruitment process in operation with new Partners more than covering the gap in the funds under management. Buy at anything below 195p and the return could well follow this year - but as always DYOR!!

I suspect Lloyds will be looking to offload SJP as it has potential to make them some money. This could help the share price continue its slow movement north in recent days.

STJ as a business is performing like never before. Given that savers are moving from deposit based 'almost nil returns' to a stock market that has a good medium term return in the pipeline - STJ is prime to reap some good rewards. LTSB has never had access to such a brand in its portfolio and now that STJ falls under the new Lloyds Group, its not up to 'HBoS that was' to decide what to with this one - Lloyds Group may well want to hang onto STJ.

With the HBOS rights issue now looking like being left with the underwriters (closing price 258p today vs rights at 275p)it's hard to see that HBOS won't itself rapidly be a takeover target with £4 billion of its stock with underwriters who will want to get rid of it to anyone. HBOS will therefore be desperate to find ways of bolstering its share price so a sale of STJ looks more on the cards.

Interesting, both insurers and asset managers weak over the last month but STJ holding up. A lot of retail money has come out of equities in the first quarter so I wonder how their model is holding up ... what happens when growth drops below 15-20% guidance, if it does? Am starting to look at these as a good short candidate over a 3-6mth timeframe. Any other thoughts? Edit: Should have read the RNS's, which I now have. On fundamentals, yes this looks like a screaming short now - business falling off, negative returns on Funds under Management .... BUT, speculation over spin-off from HBOS putting a light under the share price ... interesting. Looks like a two way bet at the moment, lol!

Well, during the week I managed to buy at £2.38 ... two days later it was at £2.61 ... too good to resist, so I've been in and out again. Will be a buyer below £2.40 again. I feel support will be in the £2.20 to £2.30 range so limited downside.

Mediochre week performance wise, back testing recent support, which I expect to hold IMO

Well the bank reporting season is over with no really bad skeletons, but it could be a time to be in other financially related sub-sectors. eg STJ looks more sound now than it has been.
