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.

wealth management has never been needed more and valued less.... SJP partners are busy buying these on the cheap...Q4 figures will be above forecasts

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.

SJP are advising clients to keep buying equities for pound cost averaging, no significant outflow of funds no significant trading of SJP but mm's are creating a panic market to pick up stock cheap....

Me neither. In fact last I heard they were aggressively hiring new partners! Have even considered working for them myself. Yogi x

Well as I said yesterday, I have bought in (hence the further fall!), one of the reasons being I use STJ regularly & don't see anyone there sat twiddling their thumbs wondering where the next piece of work is coming from!!!!

This is way overdone. Ridiculous for a very high quality company with high net worth customers. I suspect that q4 was a storming quarter as well, which makes the fall all the more out of line with the business performance. Hey ho. I will wait before buying back in. Yogi x [No position in STJ]

We're getting slaughtered all of a sudden - again. This SHOULD be a quality investment with a quality outfit.

Well STJ have had enough money out of me in the last 12 months, so decided I'll try to get some of it back with a few of their shares!
