mike740: 5 Top Budget Winners: Hargreaves Lansdown plc, Taylor Wimpey plc, Barratt Developments plc, Diageo plc & St James’s Place plc By Roland Head - Wednesday, 18 March, 2015 Updated 20 March 2015 Money matters Some of the biggest changes announced today related to savings and pensions. There will be a new flexible ISA that allows savers to withdraw money and pay it back in later in the year without losing their tax-free allowance. Tax on savings interest will also be cut. However, the big news for investors was that up to 5m people who have already bought annuities will be able to cash them in, presumably with a view to reinvesting the money elsewhere. The most likely beneficiary of this decision is Hargreaves Lansdown (LSE: HL), whose share price rose by 5.6% after the Budget. Fellow FTSE 100 wealth management firm, St James’s Place (LSE: STJ), is also likely to benefit, and was up by 3.6% this afternoon.

mike740: St James's Place's share price was extending gains on Friday after a strong third-quarter update the previous session, with Barclays Capital providing a boost after naming the wealth manager as its top pick within the European insurance sector. "Throughout SJP's recent period of underperformance, we continued to see its underlying fundamental drivers as undiminished," said Barclays analysts Alan Devlin and Chris Roberts.
mike740: St James's Place shares offer 'growth for free' says Berenberg 30 October 2014 11:24 Wealth manager St James's Place (SJP) has delivered "yet another strong quarter", according to Berenberg which repeated its positive stance on the stock on Thursday. The broker, which kept a 'buy' rating, said that with the shares trading at just one times 2015 estimated embedded value, "we believe that investors are receiving future growth at SJP for free". The embedded value of a company is the present value of future profits plus the adjusted net asset value. SJP said funds under management reached a record £49.1bn by the end of the third quarter ended 30 September, up 17% on the year before and 11% higher than the start of 2014. Net inflows were up 23% over the quarter at £1.3bn, as total new single investments grew 19% year-on-year to £1.8bn. New business was helped the demand for ISAs, the company said. Berenberg said that with the recent UK government changes to the at-retirement market, the value of face-to-face advice is increasing and SJP is well suited to that environment. "While undoubtedly exposed to equity markets, these results continue to highlight our view that the stock is less geared into falling markets than the recent share price moves would suggest - continued positive net flows, coupled with the emergence of assets from the surrender period to become cash generative, provide a strong support in more challenging market conditions," Berenberg said. The broker has a 860p target price for the stock, which was trading 2.7% higher at 706.5p by 11:30. Related Companies: STJ
woodpeckers: SJP weakness presents attractive entry point The recent weakness in St James’s Place (SJP) provides investors with a ‘very attractive entry point’ into the financial sales force, according to Berenberg analyst Matthew Preston. Shares are down nearly 15% since early March, and Preston believes the current 744p share price ‘fails to give sufficient credit for the company’s expected future growth’. ‘Growth in funds under management and new business continues to trend at or ahead of management targets, fuelling cash flows and future dividends,’ he said. ‘We expect SJP to benefit further from the ongoing fallout from the retail distribution review as trail commissions are turned off. ‘The recent underperformance provides an attractive entry point, with our 860p price target offering 20% upside.’
broadwood: Broker snap: Panmure upbeat about St James's Place after Lloyds sale Thu 23 May 2013 Broker snap: Panmure upbeat about St James's Place after Lloyds sale LONDON (SHARECAST) - Shares in St James's Place (SJP) fell sharply on Thursday morning after Lloyds placed 77m shares in the wealth manager, but Panmure Gordon kept its 'buy' rating for the stock saying it still remains its top pick for 2013. Lloyds said the sale of a 15% stake follows the recent strong performance of SJP's share price and will improve SJP's liquidity by increasing its free float. Lloyds now owns just 21% of the company after cutting its stake in March. The placing was made at a price of 580p per share, some 9.3% lower than the closing price of 640p on Wednesday night. "As with the previous placing in March we view the latest placing as positive as it indicates that Lloyds is willing to further reduce its stake in SJP thus removing what we believe is an overhang on the SJP share price together with increasing the free float," said analyst Barrie Cornes. He said that improving equity markets will continue to help SJP grow its top line by 15-20% whilst the net asset value will also benefit from better investment markets. "We believe that the shares are likely to be under pressure in the very short term as a result of the placing, but believe that the anticipated weakness should be regarded as a buying opportunity." The target price for the shares has been lifted from 600p to 725p.
malcolmsm1th: Basically it was Lloyds who held a huge amount of the STJ's shares sold a significant chunk. " Further to its announcement on 22 May 2013 of its intention to sell shares in St James's Place plc ('St James's Place', or the 'Company'), Lloyds Banking Group plc ('Lloyds', or the 'Group') announces that 77 million shares have been placed at a price of GBP5.80 per share (the 'Placing'). The gross proceeds of the Placing are approximately GBP450 million. Settlement of the Placing will take place on 29 May 2013. On completion, Lloyds will hold 110 million St James's Place shares (approximately 21 per cent of the Company's issued share capital). " Yesterday the share price was 640 or thereabouts and then Lloyds disposed of 15% of STJ's holding that it held raising half a billion pounds. Clearly the market wasn't able to take up 77 million shares at 640 so the effect of the whole lot being dumped onto the market was that the price fell about 60p. Then on top of that the market decided to shave off over 2% from the FTSE in a not very positive day which basically knocked another 7p or thereabouts off the price. So, there you have it - two reasons for the fall in price; the general market hic-cup and Lloyd's dumping the share. Now, the next question is why wasn't the share picked up at all? I got out when my stops were triggered but now I am not sure if this share is poisoned by factors that I am not aware of so I will be wary about going back in which is a shame as it was treating me nicely until this morning.
tommy ten chins: Excellent interim statement. Heading for ATH share price?
old joe1: Keep an eye on this one tipped tonight over the road, featured it here before.... STARlight: St James's Place Wed, 12/01/2011 - 00:00 | John Mulligan Recent price: 279p | Actual PER: 34.0 | Ind Div Yield: 1.8% Business background This week, the STAR filters have thrown up the wealth management group St James's Place (STJ) as appearing attractive in terms of medium-term earnings growth combined with a low valuation. I have to say that the appearance of an insurance-based share creates problems from the viewpoint of analysis, as insurance companies manage to get away with producing extremely opaque results that make it very difficult for outsiders to get behind the headline figures. The difficulty is that none of the listed insurance companies provide any readily usable data on turnover, the geographical split of their businesses or any detailed breakdown of their investments and borrowings. As the performance and allocation of their investment portfolios is a key aspect of their business model, this absence of information impedes a full assessment of business potential although some enterprise value information can usually be estimated. St James's Place is a provider of insurance products, financial services and general wealth management services that are focused on higher net worth clients. The group was set up some 20 years ago as the J Rothschild Assurance Group by Mark Weinberg, Lord Rothschild and his colleague from Hambro Life, Mike Wilson. In the early days of the company, Weinberg and Wilson recruited top selling financial advisers from their old company and from elsewhere within the UK financial services field. The selected sales people, preferably known as advisers within the group, formed the key St James's customer management partnership team. In 1997, within some six years of establishment, the group, which was then known as St James's Place Capital, floated on the LSE main market. In 2000, HBOS took a share stake of approximately 60% in the group and this interest has been retained by Lloyds Banking Group (LLOY). Annual results for 2009 The company's financial year is the same as the calendar year, so the last full-year results relate to 2009. It is impressive that, in a difficult year, St James' Place managed to raise total funds under management by just over 30%, from £16.3 billion to £21.4 billion and to increase the net inflow of funds by some 35% from £1.7 billion in 2008 to £2.3 billion in 2009. It seems that financial problems at the global and national level combined with increasing market volatility increased the number of clients seeking to shelter under St James's wealth management umbrella. Growth in new business was also aided by the rise of some 9% in the number of St James's partners advising clients. However, despite these encouraging business statistics pre-tax profits for the full year actually fell by almost 40% and earnings per share dropped by a trifle more. Recent results The most recent results from St James's Place relate to those for the third quarter, released on 2 November 2010. The company's statement on that date indicated that the third quarter reflected another excellent trading period for the group with the combination of the global recovery in markets added to new business raising the total value of funds under management to £24.8 billion. This represented an increase of approximately 10% in the three month period. The company also reported the value of single investments in the period amounted to some £1.1 billion, an increase of 32% over the previous year although the growth in single premium pensions was slightly less at 27% in the period. As at 30 September 2010, the European Embedded Value (EEV) of the group was approximately 320p per share against a share price at that time of 273p. Outlook for 2011 and beyond The sustained recovery in equity markets in conjunction with a significant level of global economic and financial uncertainty provides a perfect environment for a wealth management group such as St James's Place. The group's ability to retain around 95% of their existing clients combined with the growth in sales and advisory staff operating in an environment of equity market recovery suggests that St James' Place will in all probability continue to grow profits and EV over the next year or two. It seems likely that the EV for the year just ended will nearer 330p than 320p when the next preliminary announcement is made on 24 February. The current relatively low market rating of the group does seem to undervalue the potential given the group's impressive record at building and retaining investment business. Pros and cons It is obvious that St James's Place has built up a quality wealth management business over the past couple of decades. However, the stockmarket is not enamoured with insurance based businesses as can be seen by reference to the ratings for the larger groups such as Aviva (AV.), Prudential (PRU) and Standard Life (SL.). One other aspect is the probability that Lloyds Banking Group will, in due course, be required to sell its 60% stake in the company. To a certain extent, this possibility may have acted as a brake on the St James's Place share price although, on the other hand, the announcement of a decision to sell this large holding would focus attention on the underlying value of the business.
