A continuation of my previous expectations for both DS Smith and Ted Baker

By Chris Bailey | Tuesday 7 September 2021

Disclosure: I own shares in one or more of the stocks mentioned. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

It is just over 25 years since I first analytically appraised the multinational packaging business DS Smith (SMDS). It was a very different business back then as the world of paper and plastics in the 1990s was relevant but dull (in other words the perfect space to write an analytical dissertation for my postgraduate Finance and Investment course). Life has rolled on at multiple levels but I have been excited by this name for the last couple of years, last noting in June that I ‘typically loving-up its exposure to e-commerce delivery box-making…along with a capability for sustainable packaging solutions, paper products and recycling services worldwide’. It is good to see the new year-to-date high this morning following the publication of its AGM update (even though the share did reach a slightly higher level back in 2018).
