Interesting, both insurers and asset managers weak over the last month but STJ holding up. A lot of retail money has come out of equities in the first quarter so I wonder how their model is holding up ... what happens when growth drops below 15-20% guidance, if it does? Am starting to look at these as a good short candidate over a 3-6mth timeframe. Any other thoughts? Edit: Should have read the RNS's, which I now have. On fundamentals, yes this looks like a screaming short now - business falling off, negative returns on Funds under Management .... BUT, speculation over spin-off from HBOS putting a light under the share price ... interesting. Looks like a two way bet at the moment, lol!

On the sidelines too ... will be seeing my "partner" at SJP next week so I'll see how they see things.

Well done, I'm on the sidelines here again, not sure of direction. Will lurk.

Well, during the week I managed to buy at £2.38 ... two days later it was at £2.61 ... too good to resist, so I've been in and out again. Will be a buyer below £2.40 again. I feel support will be in the £2.20 to £2.30 range so limited downside.

Mediochre week performance wise, back testing recent support, which I expect to hold IMO

Well the bank reporting season is over with no really bad skeletons, but it could be a time to be in other financially related sub-sectors. eg STJ looks more sound now than it has been.

edited above, in fact they did use challenging in the full results statement, as all markets just now are challenging, But there is nothing that suggests it will be any more difficult than expected.

NO skeletons: NO 'challenging conditions'. Dividend up 13%. Double digit growth with no obvious barrier to this continuing.

You'd really expect this to knock spots off the share price. It has not done so.

Up over 5% today is a good rally indeed. edited STJ +20.5p. edited +25p should have added more.

Agree a good rally last few days, but in the context of its highs, only a start of recovery. Even resistance level is at least 300p. We shall see, in time.

OK out at £2.65 ... almost 20% rise in 2 weeks, and a profit is a profit. With my positive hat, I could see these approaching £3.00 if profits follow sales when results are announced .... on the other hand, if they don't these could fall again very easily. Good luck to holders

STJ +4.5% BARC ( good results) +4.6% - any connection? certainly decent Financials today. edited over a million traded, +15p, strong even in a weaker Dow today. Been adding this AM and some more PM.

On close study it is worth trading these, with a bullish, overall view, buying any dips. Today appears such. Newton and Black Rock ( both adding in Jan-Freb period) and several days of supportive activity.

STJ +9.9%, up 15.5p, clearly some interest here.

Who cares what Hedge Funds do, as if the world owed them a living. They act like the Sheriff of Nottingham. - I see STJ was down 7 at one point and closed today at -1, which I find fairly reassuring.

OK Stoaty, fair enough .... if you don't then who would? As I say, top line looks fine ... here's hoping. Today was a good day at least.

good day but can we hold on to it tomorrow, apparently some hedge funds had sold prior to 4th quarter results and had to buy in when they shot up and were not happy.. 26th feb then....

Yes me, the share is favoured with a +15p with US credit news from Buffet.

Looks brisker today, when it DOES turn it could be rapid indeed.
