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....

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.
