DS Smith – Q3 update, a continuing to trade well Buy

Packaging company DS Smith (SMDS) has issued a Q3 trading statement including that “the positive trends in profitability experienced in H1 have continued” and “positions us well for the remainder of the year and into our next financial year”. So what of a recently falling share price?

A volatile Thursday…and a chat again about DS Smith shares

Thursday is usually my busiest day of the week, but for both this week and next week it is most certainly going to be a Wednesday. I see the rumours and counter-rumours about next Wednesday’s UK budget and US Federal Reserve chat continue, hence the volatility in equity and bond markets today. We have all seen worse though, and clearly it remains an active investment world where it remains an advantage to have seen more than the “everything is awesome” backdrop of the 2010s. Anyhow, onto the third quarter corporate update from DS Smith (SMDS) today.

DS Smith – interims, still a Buy

Packaging company DS Smith (SMDS) has announced results for its half-year ended 31st October 2022 and that, with also current momentum in the business, it now expects full-year performance to be ahead of expectations. Good news.

I remain a fanboy of DS Smith after its first half numbers today

I know that the world of corrugated box packaging and the like is not very interesting, but if you want to hold a FTSE 100 company in your pension fund portfolio which is not a commodities name you could do a lot worse than DS Smith (SMDS). I last loved up the stock a couple of months ago when the price was c. 265p a share. As I write this morning it is nearer 320p a share, so I hope you purchased a few back then. But if you didn’t don’t worry, I believe the stock is still cheap.


DS Smith – a pleasing trading update

A new week and finally some good news from the United States for GSK plc (GSK) as the “FDA approves Boostrix for immunisation during pregnancy for the prevention of whooping cough in newborn infants”. It is not enough alone to start pushing the multinational pharmaceutical and biotechnology FTSE 100 name up, but it is a bit of good news for the company’s struggling CEO. As I have noted before, Dame Emma has a lot still to prove. Meanwhile, elsewhere in the FTSE 100, I am excited to see the over 8% rise in the shares today of DS Smith (SMDS).


DS Smith remains much more glass half full than glass half empty for my pension fund

The thing about being an investor is that not everything goes your way. However, like any challenge or issue in life, what really matters is how you react. I have been a fan of DS Smith (SMDS), a leading multinational packaging business, I last talked about at length a few months ago. It has not been the greatest year for many stocks and DS Smith is among them. However I am not surprised that following today’s update in respect of the period since 1 May 2022, the shares are up this morning. Even more importantly, I think it is still a key FTSE 100 position for me.
