Have been waiting for a bit of a pullback before getting in, but it looks like I might be waiting forever  :'( :D

That seems to be the problem so many times doesn't it? You look at something you want to buy and think, no, I will wait for it to pull back a little first before I buy. And then it just doesn't pull back. It just keeps going up. Then you think, hell, if only I bought that day I decided to wait for a pullback instead, then I would have still been up now. And eventually it just reaches a price where it has gotten too high for you to justify buying it anymore. Then on other times you do not wait for a pullback and you buy and then it just takes a nosedive. Very tricky thing these markets. Almost as if it deliberately only moves in a direction that will screw you, personally, over.  ::)

Don't worry about it. I'm a millennial.

I know exactly what you are saying. Expect a pullback on Monday as traders take profit. Then again, it may just go up again as the tech sector is expected to outperform other sectors.

ADI can be very volatile in thin trading but one must remember that they operate in 24 countries world wide so the weakening of the ZAR does not hit them badly.

The talk lately has been about ETF'f and other index funds. There are other great stocks out there that one must add for some alpha like this one. Here is a 3 year chart of ADI vs STXIND.
Index funds are great but will not produce the growth that you want. You have to add some alpha stocks to it as well.

I have been watching this stock since last year June...Obviously I should have bought back then, BUT, the high PE scares me. Currently according to Google Finance sitting at ~29 or 30. Recently quite a few high PE stocks have been punished quite badly,
FBR, APN etc...So, what do I do now? Haha. I know that they are nothing alike, but still. Look at the companies in the US when they missed some targets, LinkedIN, Amazon, Tableu...

I must admit, it doesn't look like they will miss any targets, but still. Makes me nervous.

Any ideas?

I do own Adapt, and will not be selling. Also own EOH and have recently added some more to my trading account to hold for a month or so because of this. EOH has been in a decline for while and you getting it at a reasonable P/E

Quote
EOH’s growth for the six month period to 31 January 2016 is expected to again be positive with significant

year-on-year growth in revenue, profit and Headline Earning Per Share (HEPS).


A detailed trading update will be published during the second half of February 2016.


The interim results for the six months ending 31 January 2016 will be published on 9 March 2016.

The high PE of ADI is justified due the vast amount of cash they hold.....Moneyweb.

I presume this is for acquisitions that will drop the PE as their aim is to acquire at least 1 company per year.

ADI sitting with excessive cash hence its somewhat high PE is justified. I expect them to make a large acquisition soon and starts shooting the lights out.
The CEO has said that he aims to make at least one per year to grow the company. He is following the EOH strategy.
About 20% of my portfolio is in ADI.
