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.

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.

One presumes that ASY will be to the fore and in demand in helping the unfortunate people caught by Desmond. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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?

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.

Interim's at the end of the week?
