St James’s Place may believe in itself but I still struggle with them

In early February last year, I observed here that investment company St James’s Place (STJ) was not worth the then share price of over ten pounds a share.  This was all centred on the view that ramping up the costs of its investments was, unsurprisingly, getting more criticised.  Unsurprisingly, there was a sub seven quid share price a couple of months later, but today St James’s Place shares are kicking around at just shy of twelve quid.  Madness again or has it finally learnt some lessons about running its business attractively?


The Dark Destroyer Matt Earl on why he is short St James Place

I view St James Place (STJ) as a long term short since it has always and continues to provide a truly appalling service to its customers. You can fleece punters to reward staff and shareholders for only so long but eventually you reap what you sow and for me that makes this company uninvestable. The Dark Destroyer offers up a more detailed financial analysis of why his Shadowfall fund is short. Enjoy


St James's Place and the oxygen of publicity

The oxygen of publicity should never, ever be underestimated. As I noted here, after all the bad headlines and challenges associated with high fees and a dodgy self-serving corporate culture, 'there is only one way out of all of this for St James's Place and that is a root-and-branch business change which is driven by key managers at the top'.  Well finally we might be seeing this.
