#FTSE #Japan Before producing a report, we generally glance at a companies website for a brief update on their basics. Standard Life Aberdeen prove quite challenging, thanks to the corporate website failing to provide clarity or examples on what they actually do to make money. It took a Google search for some clarity, revealing they’re a UK based g lobal investment company headquartered in Edinburgh, Scotland. It is the largest active asset manager in the UK, with investments in equities, multi-asset, fixed income, real estate and private markets.
Standard Life featured in a brief FT article, where politicians were bemoaning office workers opting to remain working from home, leaving city centres bereft of their usual daytime footfall. The usual sandwich and coffee chains complain, despite lockdown easing, their “take” is down by as much as 85%. As we’ve mentioned previously, the new culture of homeworking is liable to give a long term headache for landlords renting office space, especially when corporate entities such as SLA appreciate substantial savings can be made by reducing the size of their office footprint.
As for Standard Life share price, it has not yet recovered above the Covid-19 drop level. Thankfully there are early signs giving some slight hope, the value needing exceed 279p to (hopefully) trigger a recovery cycle to an initial 301p. If bettered, our secondary calculates at 345p and an almost certain glass ceiling thanks to the history of prior highs.
If trouble is to be courted, the share needs slither below 234p to justify a raised eyebrow as this risks provoking a reversal path to an initial 158p with secondary, if broken, at 132p. We cannot calculate below 132p at present, so regard this unlikely drop potential as an “ultimate bottom”.
For now, the visuals suggest the company shall be worth keeping an eye on as a jump to 301p makes a lot of sense.
