If you got lucky with Capita shares four of five months ago, you should exit stage left now

Just under eight months ago HERE  I gave Capita (CPI) - which describes itself as “supporting the justice system through smart technology solutions” - a slightly alternative name.  I remember first using such an alternative name many years ago - and it is certainly neither unique or particularly smart.  But it kind of captures well the company’s struggles over the last seven or eight years where its share price contraction stands at well over 90%. How striking for a company which many will remember its epic 1990s (and initially beyond) performance.  


Capita Continues its Recovery as Big Clients Rush to Renew and Sign Up in Outsourcing Boom

Hello Share Collectors. One of my previous choices with a share price that’s never really caught fire has issued some jolly results for last year. Capita (CPI) is a company that offers computer and digital services to some bumper clients, including our government. The board boasts of ‘A year of significant change with the transformation of Capita now complete: we have established a platform to drive sustainable improving financial performance whilst continuing to strengthen the balance sheet’.



Regular readers will know I am not a fan of Capita (CPI) which describes itself as an ‘international business process outsourcing and professional services company’.  When I was growing up, it was a company that started as a small cap, quickly become a mid cap and ended up as a FTSE 100 institutional investor darling.  I never purchased it myself, which initially looked stupid, but the mere 86.9% share price fall over the last five years has made me look a bit smarter.
