EPS dropped slightly from last year. But the underlying results look solid enough to me.

Is a yield over 7% too good to be true? Combined with an AIM listing it initially suggests a dubious enterprise i.e. the stock priced for a high yield to compensate for risks. Yet the five-year table for Andrews Sykes (ASY) shows robust if variable financials, with cash flow significantly above earnings - the typical profile for a group of mature businesses.

Capitalised near £140 million, it principally combines two long-established equipment hire operations: Andrews air conditioning and heating, and Sykes pumps for de-watering in situations like mining and construction.

Stretching criticism, the group appears rather well-consolidated in this structure, possibly due to majority ownership by the Murray family - with Tony Murray as chairman and his son as vice-chairman. Yet the accounts are clean, capable management is in place, and the board prioritises shareholder returns - so this stock has use in a diversified portfolio.

When to buy in?
11 Oct '14
I think the company got out a lot of bad news 2 weeks ago. They must have done pretty well in July hence there cautiously optimistic bit at the end despite saying trading had been disappointing. Last winter was amazingly mild. I gauge it by my fish pond! Despite a few 'white grass' frost mornings, the fish pond didn't freeze over once all winter and there was no snow, just wind and rain. That, and the middle east, has hit them hard. This company is very weather dependent despite what they say.

However, they do generate cash and still have healthy net funds and a healthy pension fund. Unfortunately, they need to keep enough staff and equipment to service the high demand periods, so they suffer when the demand isn't there. A small increase/decrease in revenue has a big impact on profits as we've seen. However, it can work the other way. I would think 250p would be getting very cheap for such a high quality company.
