chrissey - You may be right, but I've already tied up the released funds in JMAT, which was also tipped in same article, and in RTD.

I see that some opinion is contrary to mine (above). Glad to post for balance. Sunday Telegraph - "Software and computer services group Synstar seems to be one of the brightest small technology companies to have joined the stock market in recent years. After a difficult period of restructuring it is benefiting from a new approach based on managed services. Buy at 69p."

I sold out on the profit set-back in the expectation of a gradual sag during the summer doldrums and with a view to possibly buying back in later. Although I consider the price has been surprisingly resilient until today, I would not be surprised to see 60p tested in due course (July/August) unless more encouraging news intervenes. In a poor market it could even retest 52p imho. Anyway, I want sub 60p to consider a re-entry. Good luck to all who hold.

It's still a hold - can't see what has really changed as we all new the jam would be when the newer contracts kick-in which hasn't happened yet. It will.

Disaster Recovery group Synstar announced a 41% slump in underlying first half pre-tax profits to 2.235 million pounds but promised that revenues for the rest of the year would grow by 8-10% helped by the mammoth new Fujitsu contract. WestLB reckons that in marking the shares down by 1p to 73p the City got it wrong and set an 85p fair value as it reiterated its "buy" stance but Arbuthnot reckons that the shares are still overvalued and advised its clients to "sell."

01.06.04 :-1, (73) delivered first half results which failed to excite the market, though analysts remained broadly positive on the company. Earlier, the company posted a 41% drop in underlying profit in the six months to March 31, on turnover down 3.3% to 107.8m, well short of the 111.4m forecast by house broker Arbuthnot. However, analyst George O'Connor repeated his 'buy' recommendation on the stock, describing the 13.8 multiple of 2005 earnings the shares are trading on as "pedestrian". Fellow broker Panmure Gordon, which also rates the stock a 'buy', said the results were "reasonably solid". It has an 85 pence share price target.

I closed one small trade at a modest profit after the market seems less than impressed. I still hold lots however as I think it was the way the story has been put across rather than the story itself

CAS Synstar : Restructuring almost complete 01-Jun-2004 07:58 Synstar today said its pretax loss for the 6 months to March 31, 2004, was #14.5m, compared with a year-earlier profit of #3.8m. Steve Vaughan, chief executive, said: "Phases four and five of our plan are no less ambitious than the first three phases, completed last December. The restructuring is nearing completion and has so far been delivered successfully. "We are now securing the right sort of pipeline to deliver on our commitments in Phase five for turnover growth. "Our contract wins showed good momentum in the first half and look set to continue in the second half. Our additional contract for Fujitsu Logistics, announced in April, and the pipeline of Managed Services deals suggest that Synstar should be able to achieve turnover growth on continuing operations of about 8-10% in the current financial year, and also in 2005. "I am hopeful that the realignment of the business will help in maintaining relatively stable margins going forward. "We are clearly pleased that so much is being achieved during this period of significant change with both the emphasis on Managed Services and our new logistics business providing a solid foundation for future revenue growth in the second half and thereafter." John Leighfield, chairman of Synstar, said: "This is a resilient financial performance given the extent of change in Synstar's business over the past six months. The management's focus has been on moving the company towards higher margin Managed Services contracts and we have invested heavily to achieve this. "The changes effected during this financial period give us a strong base for the full year and the longer term market leadership aspirations of the business."

for interest Sage brightens IT prospects James Rossiter, Evening Standard 11 May 2004 AGE, Britain's biggest software company, today bolstered the confidence in the wider IT sector as it turned in half-year figures showing strong underlying sales growth. Providing detailed figures behind the 17% surge in interim pre-tax profits outlined in a trading statement last month, chairman Michael Jackson said he viewed 2004 with confidence as existing business showed no let-up in consumers' desire to upgrade their Sage software packages. Sage has more than 4m small and medium-sized business customers who bought 226,000 additional licences in the six months to 31 March, helping drive up software revenues 15% in the period to £124.7m and represented 38% of group revenues. This helped boost overall group revenue 23% to £332.5m which has also been aided by four acquisitions during the period. Jackson said: 'These results show the underlying revenue growth compared to recent reporting periods. 'They also show the early contribution from our four recent acquisitions where integration into the group is proceeding swiftly and effectively. 'While market conditions are substantially unchanged, these results show that our growth strategy is gaining momentum in each of our core markets.' Services revenues, which accounts for 62% of revenues, grew 29% to £207.8m. Stripping out the effect of new business purchases and overall like-for-like sales grew 3%. The interim dividend* rises 10% to 0.611p.

I am still holding on to my stake in these boys. I think the company is a well run, well managed company with an eye to the future. These are volatile times in world markets, and it takes time to build a quality business when clients are nervous. The product offerings fit well with the way the computing indistry is been driven and providing Synstar can win it's fair share of contracts I am sure this company will do well in the longer term. A quality buy and hold stock for me.

Must admit I am doing okay - I hold some and trade some - last trade showing a 10% gain and my holding has almost doubled. They are a little slow - probably because they are not a well traded retail stock but mostly institutions etc
