davydoo: "Looking to the year ahead, we continue to plan cautiously in an uncertain environment, however we are a resilient business and are well positioned for continued growth in both the UK and internationally." How is 5 years of falling sales continued growth? Maybe he means the share price.

simpler: Xmas results out on Weds. Am expecting L4L sales to fall. The promotional mix Smiths campaigned with (e.g 75% off books) over the Xmas period smacks of desperation and will surely affect margin and therefore earnings. Unsure of whether this has already been baked in the recent share price fall from 700p to 600p though. Any other views?

philanderer: Evening Mark, maybe in some peoples` eyes they`re still not that expensive ? ;-) Dividend still at 4%+ Next week brings a few choice updates from important sectors. WH Smith (LSE: SMWH) is due to provide us with preliminary full-year results on Thursday, and the signs are good. At the time of the company's pre-close update in August, we were told to expect results at the upper end of current forecasts. High-street business is focusing in margins and cost-cutting, and the Travel division is doing well despite the depressed economy. The share price has stormed up to today's 656p from a low of 472p in June. But even after that near 40% rise, the shares are still not looking that expensive -- latest forecasts suggest a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of under 11, with a dividend yield if 4.1% expected. The dividend should be well covered, and the firm's pre-close update suggests we can have confidence in it. http://www.fool.co.uk/news/investing/2012/10/05/5-opportunities-for-the-week-ahead.aspx

philanderer: UT: 137K @ 646.50p ---------------------- Motley Fool High-street strength -- preview 11th October WH Smith (LSE: SMWH) is one of those rare beasts -- a high-street business whose performance has held up well during the recession. In fact, earnings and dividends have been rising steadily, and the share price has more than doubled to 638p from a 2008 low of 295p. And part of that has been due to a recent surge that has seen the price gain 35% from around 470p in June. But even after all that, full-year forecasts put the shares on a modest price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 10.4, falling to 9.4 for 2013, with a dividend of 4.2% expected (2013: 4.7%). Oh, and the point of it all is that those results will be out on Thursday 11 October. A pre-close update in August told us that the firm expected its performance to hit the top end of then-current forecasts. http://www.fool.co.uk/news/investing/2012/09/28/5-dates-for-your-october-diaries.aspx

philanderer: 'Market Watch: WH Smith sales take off as travel branches drive growth' Sunday 19 August 2012 00:00 High street stalwart WH Smith is expected to reveal improved like-for-like sales as it continues with its strategy to expand its UK travel arm and international division. The travel business, which features stores at airports, railway stations and motorway service areas, has helped offset declines in the under-pressure high street outlets in recent months. The travel arm now makes up 50 per cent of the group's pre-tax profits and analysts expect it to continue being the key driver for growth, supported by its plans to expand internationally. Seymour Pierce analyst Kate Calvert said: "The business model is becoming increasingly more flexible as travel accounts for a greater proportion of group underlying earnings and its high street position is benefiting from market consolidation." The group is also expected to give an update on the success of the Kobo e-reader, which it introduced to stores this year to compete with Amazon's Kindle. http://www.scotsman.com/scotland-on-sunday/business/market-watch-wh-smith-sales-take-off-as-travel-branches-drive-growth-1-2476354 PA: WH Smith recently saw its share price hit a new high as investors continue to be convinced by the retailer's strategy to expand its UK travel arm and international division. A final trading update on Thursday before it publishes full-year results in October is expected to reveal improved like-for-like sales across the group. Despite recent strong share gains, Seymour Pierce analyst Kate Calvert said she still believes the market is undervaluing the business at around £748 million and that shares at around 575p could go further. She said: "The business model is becoming increasingly more flexible as travel accounts for a greater proportion of group underlying earnings and its high street position is benefiting from market consolidation." http://www.google.com/hostednews/ukpress/article/ALeqM5jva2LG7MN9vEzOHi01Ol69xGg86w?docId=N0035301345210413101A

spawny100: Not a lot of activity on this bb in a month! When will they stop buying I wonder? Given that all this buying is having no impact on share price it is logical to assume then when they stop we are in for a sharp fall. Target sub £4 initially...

spawny100: Not sure myself GGecko and would be interested as it seems these buybacks are simply going to support share price whilst they are ongoing.....

utsushi: I think a declining trend in the P&L could be counter balanced by strength in the Balance sheet, returning cash to shareholders, combined with a modest valuation, and yield could support the share price so what is most likely perhaps(?) is a stalemate between both sides with the share price stagnating until some kind of earnings surprise comes along.
