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....

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!

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.
