Interesting to see that Sykes "Drying Packages" for homes rent for up to £200 per week or so.(had a look on the website) Guess the drying process per home takes many weeks and the cost is hopefully covered by Insurance. Quite a lot going on due the unusual weather

Cold (very)in Holland and the Sykes website details the expansion of capacity in Paris. Share price seems a bit drifty but the market as a whole is not inspiring too much confidence at the moment.

Yes, that is good news. Also, looks like the jet stream is buckling at long last. Cold spell due next week which will shift emphasis from pumps/driers to heaters. Need more than just one week of cold though so I'll update on likely length of the cold spell as and when.

Some excellent news on the blog re the Paris depot:- "Andrews Sykes are delighted to announce the expansion of our Paris branch after an extraordinarily successful twelve months in the French capital. Despite only opening a depot in the region towards the end of 2014, the company has enjoyed a sharp upsurge in business during the period and subsequently took the decision to obtain extra space – thereby more than doubling the size of our facility....."

Seems like 7500 houses flooded last week on top of the 5000 in Cumbria, so that is significant extra demand for asy. Always very sympathetic for those affected but hopefully asy will help in some way too as they do seem to be very efficient.

Looks like the very mild, if not warm, weather will last through to the end of December and early January bringing with it frequent rains. The JestStream animation makes fascinating viewing again ( remember to press the "animate" button):- http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=jetstream The longer term January forecast - according to netweather- will turn to cold in part and then back to average. This is what they say "Severe cold spell with snow and frost most likely in January following SSW". Herewith forecast:- http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=longrange;sess= The massive El Nino Pacific-warming event of 2015 explains a lot of the abnormal, weird and record-breaking weather in the UK and around the world this year. ALL IMO> DYOR. QP

Sykes' services will likely all being going flat-out again to help those stricken by appalling floods in Yorkshire and Cumbria. The FT today mentions " Floods swamp north with £1bn-plus bill". ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

Yes, it's nice to get confirmation that they are doing well, and of course the utmost sympathy to those that have been affected. I would imagine this has helped things along although the mild weather is not good, especially as it's not just UK but also Europe. Looks to me like we could be getting more rainfall events before December is out. As far as the rest of the winter is concerned, the jet stream is doing a uniform circumnavigation of the northern hemisphere at between 50 and 60 degrees north with is keeping cold air to the north. It needs to start buckling to get going some 'ups and downs' of cold and warm air but no sign of that for the next few weeks. I'll let you know when I see something.

Good Morning As you say, very sad for the people who have suffered damage .I just can't imagine how they feel ... devastating no doubt. The fact that it has happened more than once in the last years just pours salt in the wound . As Keith said in an earlier post , need some cold weather for Sykes winter trading ... certainly appears to staying mild for a while in the South of the Country ... time will tell All IMHO

Confirmation that the floods have brought work to the company:- "Andrews Dehumidification Hire have been extremely busy providing building dryers to customers throughout Cumbria" hTTp://www.andrews-sykes.com/blog/cumbria-flood-victims-aided-by-andrews-dehumidification/ We'd all prefer to receive work under happier circumstances, and of course lots of sympathy to all the people who have suffered damage to their homes.

Yes definitely a boost to ASY .- And ASY's services will be of great assistance to so may badly affected people. ALL IMO> DYOR. QP

Well, it looks like somewhere between 5 and 10 thousand homes flooded so this is going to be a big boost to ASY.

Yes, should be all grist to the mill I would reckon, never seen quite so many flooded fields/areas when driving long distances recently.

No doubt about it. Pumps must be doing pretty well. Press reports vary a lot re houses flooded but I've seen reports this morning that it runs into thousands. If that is the case, then the heaters/driers are going to do very well. If I'm right there were only a couple of thousand flooded in the Thames valley/Somerset levels flooding a few years ago. Mind you, could do with some cold weather at some stage.

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.

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.

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.
