T7 it is only my opinion as a partner at stj,i have no insider info ,but have a reasonable handle on how businss is going. I can give no other explanation for the current share price , and know of no dire calamity.

I'm reminded of an article in Scotland on Sunday today's date: Bill Jamieson writes "A worrying feature of the pessimism psychology is that downward trends in the economy are almost automatically expected to continue, while reasonably robust company earnings are dismissed as historic with no relevance to what is about to strike. This helps explain.. the viciousness of the falls in some sectors, and the short-lived and tentative nature of any rallies.." This seems to apply here and to 50-60 shares I follow most of which have actually halved over 6 months, ( well they happen to sit on my value in the future watchlist). When shares fall 50% and the market has fallen only 14% we are either in a doomed share or in a position of oversell. As a contrarian STJ remains a buy for me at the current price.

Stoaty, I do think you have rather rose-tinted spectacles, these have fallen far faster than either the insurance or asset management sector. And what "forced sellers" might there be? Do you really think that all the buyers and sellers are mad and that only you can see the true value of the company? Everyone gets the fact that they are growing the top line. What is far harder to understand, and please spell it out for us if you have some insights, is how that it going to translate in to current year EBIT and, equally important, what the current year's tax charge is likely to be. Personally, I think that the shares have fallen too far to reflect what is simply uncertainty and bought yesterday at £2.23 after weeks of dithering. But these are far from a slam dunk. I for one would prefer to see a discussion and debate on the risks/upsides than statements that nothing could possibly be wrong and its all down to misguided market sentiment.

fair enough stoaty, down 5%, quite a lot of volume so many a few large forced sellers are the reason. If so, it will have overshot downside very soon.

Hectorp, they are neither lenders or borrowers, nor have they exposure to these problems except by association through the fund managers who invest in equities .the share price can only be due to the sector they are in and perhaps forced sellers.

Current price certainly flies in the face of the 4th Quarter figures . I can only think that there is such opacity in the way they keep their books that it could always hide'something' eg some subprime credit crunch bogeyman.

Tourist07,i do not think anything untoward is going on with stj,quite the reverse as we will find out, iam sure, at month end when full year figures are released. It is just the markets having a downer on anything financial, good or bad .I am sure that this time next year this will look an unbelieveably low price!

This is looking like a very sick puppy ... just wish I could figure out why. But thats probably the answer ... no-one knows whats going on.

So also today +5p so far. Better trading and waiting for the better rally back, which should come, in weeks.

Lol, perhaps I'll get another chance. As posted before, I'm wary .... they put a lot of store by the new business numbers but its a long way from there to the bottom of the P&L Account. Was there a conf call that anyone listened to? Did they guide on earnings?

Tourist, STJ the 4th Q results should've underpinned the current price.

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.

goldman sachs downgraded to neutral from buy (at 306), target now 361 from 371 so thats a clear buy then.....

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.
