The company is in a strong position and we look forward to the future with confidence."

Good results again this morning. The up on all key metrics. Think there is more to come here. I look at the cash adjusted EPS of 19.8p for a PER of 19 and a dividend yield of 3.2%.

Great to see the share price boosted after todays update. I really think this sector is off the radar as far as share investors are concerned. A well run self storage business surely is a solid investment at the moment IMO. Increasing population, people have more stuff etc. Safestore is the UK's largest self-storage group with 134 stores. Safestore operates more self-storage sites inside the M25 than any competitor. Safestore has strengthened its market positions in both the UK and Paris with the acquisition of Space Maker (29 July 2016).

Good trading update: revenue above median market forecasts and EPS to the top end of market forecasts. It gives again ...

Bought the trading statement today. If does seem to me that the real estate sector has underperformed price-wise since the referendum vote, which seems overly pessimistic to moi. :-)

It's just given a little more: "we are confident in generating cash tax adjusted earnings slightly ahead of current market expectations" from Q3 update.

Looks nice. The company seems to like a highly adjusted version of eps as their preferred measure. Ah yes.. eps measured in the more normal way is down by 20 odd percent! That explains it. The adjustments seem reasonable in some ways though.

Cracking set of final results and a good start to the New Year. Still plenty to go for with this share IMHO. Where else can you gt 7% revenue growth in an asset backed FTSE250?

This really is a very quiet board with no posts at all during the last seven months!!! There is a very nice article in this weeks 'shares' magazine about Safestore's growing returns, with lower costs and operational focus set to drive a net asset value rise; it rates it's growth as high whilst both the risk and quality is set as medium I like Safestore's growing dividend, at 31 October 2013 it was 5.75p and at 31 October 2014 it grew to 7.45p with the Investec forecast for the current year being 8.6p whilst the following year it could be 9.3p per share. The shares article concludes that momentum is building in the business as it extends it's track record of boosting occupancy while increasing prices; the share is rated a buy. I'm a long term holder so well pleased

The most disconcerting element of today's trading is that not only is the volume well up on the recent daily average but the number of trades is exponentially up. A quick look at the last 5 days trading shows a consistent level of 50 or so trades and 50,000 volume. Today there are over 800 trades and well over 1,000,000 volume. However, having said that, apart from one large trade (a sell) mid-morning of some 228,000, the bulk of trades are still only in three figures. Maybe the market knew about the large sell in advance. It's unlikely the market would have any advance warning about current trading this far in advance of results, IMO. It's more likely to be small holders being caught out by stop losses - and then some more. The first quarter trading update in February didn't flag up any serious concerns; indeed, it was reasonably upbeat. So we'll just have to wait till next Thursday. PS This is a very quiet board - no posts for nearly six months! edit At least the price has hardened a little at the close.

I was thinking the same. Always a worry as a PI, we're usually the last to hear about significant news. Hopefully it's just a result of the recent downer in the housing market.

Anyone know why share price has dropped quite substantially today? Interim results due on 26th June and I am hoping that these will be rather nice, but given the drop I wonder if news etc has leaked out!!!

Guys I recommend to get in now and go long......give it 3 or 4 years but there are good things coming. Fortunately I got in at around 104p so it's been a nice little earner.
