most/all of the big shareholders since a fund mngr bought in around 30p are still invested....(noting that the MD sold about 10% of his stake about a year ago...nothing wrong with that (maybe money for a new house, new extension, new car, house for a child...(Not much point keeping all one's gains until one is 85 we pass away...) MD still has millions invested in STM and hence is highly motivated to drive STM forward, as he has proven he is doing since he became the MD.

"Its a statement of fact. Remember the CEO's bestie sold millions at sub 30p. Don't shoot messenger. Take note." well, selling millions at sub 30p turned out to have been a big loss maker !! (but lets note that these big fish are playing in more games than us PIs) (if that chunk of cash lets you expand your own private business in to say USA..which then goes like a rocket...then maybe he made the right choice for him ...or maybe he used the cash to take part in a fund raising and keep a controlling interest in a business which employees him and wife and 3 kids...and over 10 years he gets back all of that money via salary and still holds the investment... or maybe he had a big bill from a spread bet house due to a bet that went wrong or maybe a big tax bill to pay or risk losing his house we dont know)

Horndean has been on here trying to knock STM in the past - clearly a troll. Why would somebody with no interest in the company take time to talk it down? Fundamentals are rock solid, much more to come in the SP, nice dividend, finCapp tergetting 80p and Simon Thompson, IC, on board with 75p target. What’s not to like?

Your statement shows that even if someone is selling millions it might be detached from fundamentals... I am taking note of factual noise.

Director sells entire holding today. Not exactly a vote of confidence.

cash one would think they could hold the cash at the same place that lent STM the cash & just pay interest if the nett result is a debt (& nett amount would be cash & no debt & hence no % interest to pay) but that is so obvious I guess there must be reasons against it ; the regulatory money probably/definitely cant be held in that way since needs to be safeguarded/isolated. The bod are very clued up & yrs of experience & have a solid % of the co. so Im sure they are controlling it as best as possible. ( & there are surely/phps % penalties for paying off the loan too quickly)

I try A good amount of cash has to be held for regulatory purposes 1 reqt. being I think 3 months of operating costs & I guess some as extra security for assets held for clients that is talked about in the accounts -- & having a cash pile is also useful for - looking at any acquisitions - attracting new clients ('this company holds millions as cash, so your 50,000€ will be save & if you want your cash/assets back very quickly, they could obviously do it'

I have shares in STM and currently trying to better understand the business and reviewing whether to increase my holding. One question I would really appreciate help with, if anyone has a view. This relates back to the end of 2016 when we acquired London and Colonial. Part of the purchase price was funded by an increased RCF of £3.3m which costs 4% above LIBOR. Given the significant cash balances which the company holds, does anyone know why STM did not just use existing cash resource to pay, rather than slightly expensive debt? Many thanks in advance

Still very cheap at these levels - FinnCap have 80p target on this. A little profit taking yesterday after a strong run but plenty more to come, I'm thinking!

Kentish and Banks are thick as thieves. Makes it more puzzling why Banks was so keen to get out of STM a couple of years ago at 30p https://www.opendemocracy.net/uk/brexitinc/marcus-leroux-leigh-baldwin/brexit-s-offshore-secrets-0

Expect Simon Thompson’s reveiw to be published during the course of Tuesday and expect this to be made hard copy the following Friday in IC. Very promising!

FinnCapp have upgraded their target price from 65p to 80p following results. I’m certain ST will value at least at that, probably even higher if previous patterns are anything to go by. Strong Growth, a nice dividend and a low beta value make this a great little company to be invested in!!

I’ve been following the news on this company and all appears to be amicably resolved, though it may take a little time and press coverage to get the price moving again - on these numbers it is ridiculously cheap. Simon Thompson (IC) is a big fan and no doubt he’ll be reporting over the next week. I expect the price to start moving within this timescale!

After normalising for tax, I get a cash adjusted PE of 4.5 @55p. I like the fact that there's not much downside on future revenues. Wondering if there is anything nasty coming from this Gibralter investigation. Otherwise, should be a reliable long term hold. Possible rerating, but these quasi investment companies are always cheaply valued by the market.

Today's results strike me as being really good. £18.4 m cash and 59.4m shares gives 31p cash per share. A share price of 55p and basic EPS of 6.69p gives a PE ratio of 8.2. Adjusting the share price to remove cash leaves 24p (55-31) and a cash adjusted PE of 3.6 (24 ÷ 6.69). Simon Thompson in Investors Chronicle currently has a target price of 70p. I think he'll probably be adjusting that up. Applying a PE ratio of 10 (because it's a nice round number) to the underlying earnings of 6.69p then adding back the cash would give a target of 90p (66.9+24). Are my sums right?

So completion confirmed, adding another 0.4m to profits from next year! Great to be invested in this company: significant EPS growth year on year; underpinned by 70% recurring business; nice dividend (should increase this year!); low beta value; strong management team - what's not to like? Will be invested here for the forseeable!

In full agreement, Smithie. A terrific performance by management this last year, stabilising the company whilst ensuring significant growth at the same time. I look forward to writing to the company after results next month to congratulate them on a great effort.
