Hi

At the London Stock Exchange, the SDL stocks are failing today by approx. 13% with a very big volume.
http://www.londonstockexchange.com/exchange/prices-and-markets/stocks/summary/company-summary.html?fourWayKey=GB0009376368GBGBXSTMM

It means an approx. 40% value loss in 8 months.

Any input?

Cheers
GG

If you read the trading update you'll see that they're not expecting to make as much money as they first thought this year:

Thanks, I missed it, I took a look rapidly at the "News analysis" tab which obviously is not updated yet...

BTW, 5 weeks ago they were stating it's basically OK.

BTW, an interesting quote:
Most of the growth continued to come predominantly from language services, whilst technology revenues continue to be suppressed.

This is because translation demands grow with economic and global development [while newer Trados software gives newer technical weak points/issues for coming resolution].
