Being a weather forecaster and someone who has watched ASY for 20yrs and seen how the weather affects the various divisions can I say that you have to be careful making some of these assumptions? Apart from the 2 beasts from the east (the second a short affair mostly over a weekend), the winter was not particularly cold. Pretty wet granted, but nowhere near as wet as some recent ones. Also, this summer got off to a slow start and although there were a couple of warm spells in April and May, the awareness of a hot summer has only been fairly recent and short warm spells do not help ASY overmuch. Also, the long dry spell is not good for the pumping side. It'll be a good summer for them, no doubt about it, but certainly not the best they could possibly hope for. Similarly for the first half. Another month of hot weather and I will be getting excited though! Interestingly, I see they have reduced their min hire period from 4 weeks to 1 week.

All this aside, and the seemingly blind nature of the market to the obvious... this will clearly create very tough comps for next year if it pans out. Short term traders will struggle with that, but pushing back against that...: 1) should have fab cash generation this year 2) ASY is essentially getting a phenomenal amount of free marketing, and that will persist in terms of existing/new client awareness. Deliver when businesses most need ASY and they're firmly on the map for the foreseeable. So not quite a black and white strong year/tough comp issue IMO. Positives far outweigh into the mid term

Thanks guys, glad to own what is a very high quality stock. This year must be absolutely brilliant for them so far... "The Met Office warned the remarkable temperatures across the UK are on course to last until at least late August with 'very warm, hot or very hot' conditions likely to last for at least another five weeks. It means Britain is officially on course for its hottest summer ever"

Evening all Bought my first ever pinch of ASY today. Almost apt to be posting this on such a scorching day. Rationale really not difficult. Sure the spread is pretty annoying, and this isn't the most exciting business, but it's a quality, family-owned, compounder. It's compounded over the last decade, and I'm sure it will continue to do so. Moreover, this year I can only imagine will be exceptional for the business. This summer alone could be the hottest for more than a decade, and it's been prolonged, which create perfect conditions for ASY. Combined, highly likely this is effectively trading on low teens forward PE, for a stock with consistently reliable cash generation and with a c. 4.5% dividend yield to boot. Sneaky feeling the time of sideways price movement will end soon! P

Just been on to sales to enquire about another a/c unit and unsurprisingly they are 'very busy'.

The shares have been strong over the last 2 yrs but yes, it is surprising how many sellers there are at the moment given that the weather must be helping them tremendously. I presume a lot of investors don't really understand the business, either that or they are still taking profits from purchases over the last year or two. The forecast suggests this week could well be there best yet and after a slight cooling over the weekend next week could be even hotter with suggestions of 100F IN London. Sooner or later this has got to affect the share price.

Been really surprised with ASY weakness post results. Even excluding the company buyback of stock. Sellers just kept on hitting it all the same. Should really be at record highs and would imagine we will get there in a few months. Interims won't really pick up much of the heatwave yet though. Commentary will no doubt point out the full year should be very strong.

Have to say this is the best summer they have had in their bigger, more efficient format so it should have a massive impact on profits given that extra trade is pretty well all icing on the cake. I think there could be something special going to happen and I wish I had some spare cash. However, I have many thousands so looking forward to making some money.

Well there was a bit of stock around so I’ve picked it up at 5.149 ..price ticked up immediately so I’m guessing that is the last of the oversupply of stock that has seen the shares trade at levels that suggest their business is stuck in a rut. My intention is I’m going to hold these forever..as whenever I’ve sold I’ve always looked back with regret🙄 Incidentally the fan giveaway is Twitter genius👏

Water pressure is lowered when there is high demand and there obviously is after a long period of little rain. That doesn't mean there is a shortage of water though. The reservoirs were full in April so there won't be a problem until next year given a dry winter.

The golf course that I play on is like Weetabix. Desperately need some rain. Ground might as well be frozen the way it is playing. Greens still being watered" while stocks last " Water pressure definitely lower in our home.

Bit cooler this week but it comes to something when expected highs in London of 25 to 28C are described as feeling fresher. Looking to heat up again the following few weeks, especially in the south so it's beginning to look like a belter for

Confidence was high for a break down of the good/very warm weather next week but now beginning to wonder. Early tropical storm getting involved which may buckle the flow and keep a lot of us in very warm conditions. Will update, but a continuation of this will be very nice!
