|Sounds good, thanks Jeff.||keithfox|
|Hi Keith. The IC occasionally publishes lists of brokers who trade certificates with their costs etc but maybe you would be better opening up a nominee account with say HL or TDDI transferring the certs in ( this is free of charge) and then selling (or buying) at much lower commission costs? If you are purely trading with certs you may find the broker has a limit on the trade they will accept for a cert so maybe best checking that out as well.||jeff h|
|I don't have an account with a broker now as I trade infrequently and was being asked to pay £100 a month for the privilege of having an account. Can anyone recommend a reliable company I can use to occasionally trade using share certificates? Doesn't have to be the cheapest. Thanks.||keithfox|
|Yes, looks a reasonable write up although there are some mistakes in it. No way is Europe 80% of sales/hire. It gives the impression of a solid but boring company with no growth excitement but that is not true. We have had a succession of poor summers and mild winters recently and as soon as that trend changes the company will do much better. Considering that, they are doing very well and likely to do better.||keithfox|
|Superb interim results but why bother staying on the market?

|The market rarely gets excited about ASY but that pessimism expressed following the previous weather effected results are now looking a distant blip. Very strong yield here for a very steady business. Sits well in a balnced portfolio I think.||thorpematt|
|Looks respectable to me. Took a few early on. Had to actually phone a human being to place the order, the first time in quite a while, as online size was pitiful.||cwa1|
|Robust figures all round. Nice dividend of 11.9p with reiteration of dividend policy. And what everyone wants to see - an Outlook statement containing the magic words "cautiously optimistic". A good first half with noteworthy activity in Benelux and the Middle East. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP||quepassa|
|FWIW AIM rule 18 says half-year figures must be published 'without delay' and 'in any event not later than 3 months after the end of the relevant period'. So Sept 30th at the latest.||tmfmayn|
|I noticed LSC interims were out earlier in the month so thought perhaps ASY may also be earlier this year. The last 3 years its been 26th Sept, (Wed in 2012, Thur in 2013, Fri in 2014) so no real day of week pattern. Anyway we'll see them shortly no doubt.||cockerhoop|
|However, London Security interims were 11th and they are quite often the day before ASY, so I give up. They were 26th last year so maybe it's the last Wednesday in Sept which would make it next Wednesday, but who knows?||keithfox|
|If they are similar to previous years, they should be out either tomorrow or Thursday. The results will be better than last years interims, mainly because last year was so bad. The summer was not good so I presume the bit about current trading won't be marvellous, but as long as it's in the 'satisfactory' bracket that should be OK. We'll find out if they made anything out of moving HQ. In view of their cash pile we would hope for another £5m pay-out.||keithfox|
|Interim's at the end of the week?||cockerhoop|
|That is a nice contract up in Scotland for 40 pumps over a year or so.||keithfox|
|Look at this animation of the Jet Stream forecast. It's fascinating.
As you know , The Jet Stream is normally a nicely curved ribbon shape. It is now looping all over the place in a crazy fashion. Typical of El Nino events.
With such massive distortions and rapid changes to the Jet Stream, there is every chance that the wet weather could rapidly change to scorching and back again.
You hopes for hot weathermay well still come to fruition.

|Yup , I was hoping for a hot one to help demand for air conditioning units ! Nature obviously had other ideas !||ignoble|
|El Nino continues to wreak havoc with weather patterns this year. The affects of El Nino - the strongest for several decades- make the most severe impact towards the end of a year as the Pacific unleashes its pent-up heat and significantly alters global air currents and patterns. One can perhaps expect the normally steady Jet Stream to deviate greatly from regular seasonal patterns this year which will bring extreme weather conditions over the UK and Europe over the next few months. Looks like we have already been experiencing a conveyor-belt of heavy rain and storms brought in rapidly from the Atlantic this August compared to a normal year. I think there is a lot more to come. Lovely Bank Holiday weather for ducks! ALL IMO. DYOR. QP||quepassa|
|Tks Jeff ... good read||ignoble|
|Yes ignoble quite a bit of business outside the UK now so nice reading stories about contracts and how things are progressing. A good UK story on the blog today - selected for the NHS framework:- Andrews Sykes Group are delighted to announce successfully securing a place on the London Procurement Partnership NHS framework, having regularly provided climate control services to hospitals and clinics up and down the country prior to confirmation. This development has been ratified by the Official Journal of the European Union and allows the NHS and other public sector organisations to use our equipment as a pre-approved supplier. LPP is an NHS-founded membership body which strives to work alongside associates to support the organisation and maximise its purchasing power. This then enables the NHS to continue offering high quality services and to reshape and improve the health care available to those who need it. This recent progress is applicable not just to London, but to other parts of the country too including the Midlands and both northern and southern England. Under the current structure, we have been selected as the company to provide flexible procurement arrangements whenever required, thus giving users within the charter an opportunity to source air conditioning maintenance assistance as soon as it becomes necessary. As a business, we have demonstrated a genuine commitment to aiding the healthcare sector over a number of years, and this has only seen us enhance our reputation during this period. From installing both temporary and fixed cooling solutions to carrying out upkeep on existing systems, our unrivalled depth of experience has seen us become one of the most trusted suppliers within this particular field. Our latest revelation now affords us a greater scope to further develop what is already a close relationship with the NHS, as we strive to achieve common targets for the benefit of those depending on services they provide.||jeff h|
|Thanks Jeff, Always good to see what they are doing in other parts of the World||ignoble|
|A few articles appearing on the Middle East section.
The latest one below seems to be a large job:-
|Actually, Europe has been hotter than us, for longer than us so they must be doing quite well over there.||keithfox|
