Do you believe so james? I would wish to be in the same position, as I've added shares at these prices. I get the impression they have had some manipulation down. Even so, they are off nearly 100% from 2007 highs, and that is not justified. I have even placed STJ as one of my '5 to perform in 2008' in a sweep. IF they have managed to outperform last year's 4th Q, then a very rapid rally would be inevitable.

'tough new business comparative' this means the last quarter last year was very good so this years last qtr will have to be very good to beat it..looks to me like they will have

remember the last piece of news: the data for the 4th quarter is due soon. Sales for the third quarter alone stood at 101.9 mln stg, up 20 pct from a year earlier. "Despite uncertain market conditions and a tough new business comparative for the final quarter of the year, the strong third quarter performance reinforces our expectation that new business growth for the year will be at the top end of our longer term objective of 15-20% growth per annum," Mike Wilson, the group's chairman, said in a statement." - you can't say better than that, and they have not warned, it is possible done downside has been due to the phrase 'tough new businesss comparative'. However consistancy and strength should rule the day and the share price appears oversold in any respect.

I'll be adding too but not today and maybe not tomorrow will see how the next couple of trading days pan out. It would still be cheap at 320 in a rising market after all.

From Q3 results: "Despite uncertain market conditions and a tough new business comparative for the final quarter of the year, the strong third quarter performance reinforces our expectation (subject to no major change in circumstances) that new business growth for the year will be at the top end of our longer term objective of 15-20% growth per annum." - Looks good for the last quarter, but the market is still very volatile. This is a buy on weakness stock par excellence.

I've not started buying STJ yet for my trading account, only the SIPP. This will prove a 2-day fall at most and then off we go again , IMO.

agree james . Resistance even based on the downward trend is still over 370p. I also believe this trading pattern shows the signs of the demanding buyer, impatient for our shares, hence these attractive AM markups.

hectorp good timing, went down with the banks but hasnt come back yet, plenty upside left to £4 income stream dependent to a large extent on broad market valuations but in a downturn more gets invested, hence on recovery income higher

Extract from UBS buy note * Shares have fallen over 40%: * St James's Place's shares have fallen 44% from their peak as the market has moved to factor in the potential impact of an economic downturn. The shares are now trading at levels only briefly seen during the last downturn and offer attractive upside potential, in our opinion, on anything other than a broad based correction. * Substantial growth in FUM: * The last downturn saw geared reductions in the value of new business and cash flow issues. However, FUM are nearly 3x higher than then, providing a substantial under-pin to revenues. * Strong trading in the year to date: * Sales were 28% ahead in the first nine months and 20% in Q3. Virtually all the company's business is unitised where policyholders take the investment risk. We have reduced 2008/9 earnings by c12% to allow for lower sales and FUM than previously anticipated. * Trading at 1.1x 07E AdjNAV; upgrade to Buy * We have reduced our SOTP from 448p to 391p to reflect a tougher trading environment. Our new price target of 330p is set at a c15% discount to reflect the risks of buying at this stage of a potential downturn. With the shares already on a 'trough' rating we see long term value, with significant upside on more bullish expectations for the UK economy. We upgrade our rating to Buy.

OK, well I managed to resist adding to my position until now .... so is it the moment? I think the fall is in part due to the fact that STJ get less trailing commission when their clients portfolios tank - which is fair enough. I'm feeling like I have bought a proxy for the market at the moment ... hmmm.

Dead Cat Bounce? 300 is a key area. It needs to hold. Below 290 and next stop is 250. Yogi x

Just received the latest Panmure Gordon note from Andrew Croft...the Group FD. Panmure have a price target of 470p and comment that based on their 2007 forecasts SJP are trading on just 1.5x Embedded Value plus a mere 6x new business multiple...an unwarranted level at 388p,the price on the date of the note.

I agree. I wonder how much of this relief rally in the banks is short covering, averaging down and dip buying rather than people coming seriously back to the market.... SJP is a solid business and I am a client of theirs. Their service is exceptional, absolutely second to none, astonishingly good. I will come back to SJP as an investment at some point but not quite yet. Yogi x

Whichever metric you use there is no getting away from the fact there is an excellent growth story here and Wealth Management services will be even more in demand in these times of uncertainty.Fowrad PE of 6 looks incredibly mean given their robust balance sheet and cashflow. I have therefore dipped my toe today
