quepassa: The Offer price is an astonishing 770p with Bid at 710p. Share BUYS have been going through mid-market today in the region of 730p up to 760p. Phenomenal recent strength in the Sykes' share price which has rallied from near 400p in January after the year-end small-cap sell-off and now swiftly raced back through last October's 650p highs. Watch this space. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
keithfox: Share price up 55p since Friday so not bad for a starter and I would prefer them to be sensible. It's all down to the gaffer really as he is the one that gets most of the div money. If he wants more it'll be paid out. They paid out a special div of nearly 30% once because he wanted some money to buy hotels. Is he still in the rich list by the way?
adeg: EPS up 21% and they keep the dividend the same? Need to up the dividend to get the share price moving.
keithfox: I could sell 4000 shares at 485p if I wanted to and yet the quoted mid price is 484p. So the 'real' share price is 497.5p. Not sure why they don't actually change the share price. Any comments?
keithfox: Been looking at the relationship between the weather and their share price/results for 20 years now. Their share price has been very undervalued for a long time so it's hard to compare things over the years but there are some interesting factors I've noticed (and been told by employees). Firstly, the working week is important. As we know, long cold spells/hot spells are fairly unusual but shorter ones are much more common. If a cold snap started Wed/Thurs and ended on a Monday it would have much less impact on demand than one that started Sun/Mon. Also, British Gas has done a lot of work on weather/demand and it's fairly well known that a marked change of weather takes about 24 to 36 hrs to really have an impact on habits i.e. home power use/central heating. Also, just quoting statistics month by month does not tell the whole story. An average month of UK rainfall may not tell the full story if one particular area gets flooded. With this summer's hot spell, even during periods when things have cooled down further north, London and the southeast (and Europe!) have stayed hot. Also, the longer the heat lasts, the better it is as more and more gear gets hired out, hence they have near enough stopped selling units online and have added £200 to the cheapest one. Also London and the southeast is by far the most important area as far as demand. Lastly, they do occasionally have a moan about the weather but I've never known them say helpful weather is unlikely to be repeated. Who knows, it may be? The world is getting warmer all of the time so these hot spells may become more frequent but I'm pretty sure they won't say it's unlikely to be repeated. However, I am interested to see how they will play the statement in September. None of this helps with the likely share price though! Who knows? What I do know is that I've had these shares for 21 yrs and have no reason to complain. Managed to have several new cars and a house extension out of them and still have the shares.
pireric: 3) Gives marketplace credibility My expectation would be that if ASY ever did want to delist, then they would simply buyout the remaining holders at a decent premium (given the cash outlay is not large), as a reward for holding the stock. To illustrate the point, ASY still periodically buy back shares. In reality, I think you're overegging the costs of keeping this listed. With no broker research to pay for etc and hardly any news releases, I'd be very surprised if the all in cost extended to 7 digits (mid 6s would be my guess). Cast our minds back to keith in 2010 :0) "Just hope there is no thought of delisting. In fact, can somebody tell me why he doesn't delist? Seems daft trying to buy all the shares out there....what makes him want to stay on the stockmarket when winterflood is determoned to keep the share price low and nobody will touch a company with a 90% shareholder boss? Lots of analysts love the company but cannot recommend it because of the share set-up" This is just a very well run business with an equitable family at the helm! Mr Murray has done incredibly well for himself and is a billionaire so not sure cash is an issue :0) Ironically, his other business, London Security PLC is also still listed and that's even more illiquid :0)
keithfox: 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.
keithfox: Nice blog this morning, sounds very promising. London temps now around 26C but looks like they could go up to 30C-32C again by the weekend and into next week. That'll take them onto another level re amount out on hire. Europe is pretty hot too so they should be doing OK there as well. Only possible downside would be on the pump side I suppose although they have their uses, even in droughts. Anyway, the aircon side will easily offset that. Probably the best summer for them since 2003 and maybe way back further if it goes on beyond the next few weeks. Share price is still pretty weak for some reason but we may have to wait until the interims before people really latch on to what is going on.
valuehustle: I'm confused by the rns and buyback, can anyone help? How did the company get shares at 494p? An internal seller? I understand this is a great deal for the company but for shareholders? Does the value/ultimate roi derived from reduction in shares outstanding outweigh the low price paid here which will lower the share price? Would not a better message have been sent by buying back at an amount in the 500's - ie "ASY is undervalued at 530" is better than "ASY is undervalued at 495"? Maybe someone with more experience than I can explain? Many thanks
keithfox: OK, more questions about mm's, share prices and movements. They seem in an uptrend at the moment so the recent purchase of 880 shares would possibly have moved the price up a bit, similar to recent purchases. However, rather than change the share price they charge 15p over the odds and leave the share price where it is although it seems they have no intention of selling any stock for 560p. I've just tried 100 and they can't give me firm price. So, anyone know why they do this as opposed to just moving the price up?
