Hey well done to all you guys who held/bought through the drops. Patience rewarded. Kicking myself (but only a little) for not having the guts to dive back in ....

Thanks, so the downgraded is the reason for the drop this AM. A reduced target by 10 pence doesn't seem worthy of the downgrade. As usual the greedy gs will be telling their important clients to buy on the cheap.

Bought in this morning, also looking for that £4 level sometime next week if the mkt continues to rise.

I'm starting to think so too. Up 25% with strong buying vol and a tight spread. Clearly what was unclear is now clear, and co-incides with a market rally in Financials etc.

This will move to 400p quickly. This will still be undervalued

Added at 269p, every chance of 320-360 in days or weeks once more. Depending on market conditions.

credit default swaps put the boot in for high value bondholders.. ``The major risk for credit markets remains forced selling on the back of downgrades of the insurers,'' said Jochen Felsenheimer, the Munich-based head of credit derivatives research at UniCredit SpA, Italy's biggest bank. ``The problem right now is there seems no way out.'' ( Bloomberg)

Certainly thats the company line Hectorp, they say they are still being treated as an insurer, rather than an asset manager. Interestingly, I suspect asset managers are coming under a bit of re-rating pressure in current markets, so the gap may not be so great. Incidentally, I don't know why they don't sell their insurance business - it must be subscale and inject unneccessary risk. Unless it's strategic in some way (ie. for sell-through, or customer stickiness) I would get shot of it at the first opportunity. Just passing through ....

I note too, STJ lumped in with Insurers in this week's large Investors Chronicle FTSE 350 feature. STJ is quoted a P/E of 14 -15, the rest of the insurers are on P/E of around 9. However looking at 'Investment Companies', we do see an average P/E of around 15. Maybe STJ is being misplaced.

Well, all the more wise if I 'take it wasy' on the share until I read the results in detail. I am no accountant.

Many thanks Tourist, not the ist time I have seen comments along theline that their accounting system is hard to fathom. Over-clever is not a good policy in these days of demand for transparency on the sheet.

I posted this a while back, having entered and then headed for the exit having: a) lost too much too quickly, entering at 2.94 and exiting at 2.73 a week later; b) had a hard look at their accounts and how they make money. Their accounts I found difficult to understand, which always worries me. I think part of the expectation of poor results is that some of their income comes from "carry" on client's portfolios. So when their clients' performance is weak, so is theirs. I believe (but as I say I don't fully understand the accounts) therefore that market weakness affects their income negatively. So the weak stockmarket in the final quarter (given that they are predominantly in long only funds) may well be a factor. I agree Hectorp that they will beat Revenue guidance, so this is/should be only a temporary weakness. Their tax situation (ie. effective tax rate) is also far from clear ... but thats for another day.
