This looks expensive as an investor - compare to SKG the market leader in this product sector. The mrket caps are almost the same but the ebitda and profit at SKG is significantly better - both are very good companies but at these prices one is over valued and / or one is undervalued. So from an investment point of view this is one to be cautious of at these prices..

churchtower - "Finding it difficult to understand the negative market reaction" The MM's always have a hidden agenda, us poor little PI's will never know what goes on in their minds. Far too many people listening to the media muppets every word on BREXIT and arriving at the wrong conclusion most of the time haha.

Slowly edging back up to the recent previous high of 508. As an investor rather than a short sighted trader I cannot imagine why anyone should wish presently to sell this share after the latest trading statement and the increased prospects resulting from the US acquisition.

My apologies AdamB if you thought I was looking for an argument. I now recognise the actual intention in your choice of words,with which I fully agree. Finding it difficult to understand the negative market reaction, with statements such as 'Has Been An Encouraging Start To Year With Trading In Line With Our Expectations and Rate Of Like For Like Volume Growth Being Well Ahead Of Comparative Period Last Year.'

As am I. Rather than assume that you're just looking for an argument, I'll just say that I think you re-read my post completely differently to the intention of it

Content to be bored if that is what such a positive and confident statement can elicit. Clearly our thresholds of boredom differ. As a longer term investor this is the type of news which ensures that I remain a holder.

Nice boring trading statement from SMDS this morning - exactly what they're good at. Keep on quietly executing....

Unless SMDS rises above the automatic entry level, another share has to leave the FTSE100 by falling below the automatic exit level. hTtp://www.stockchallenge.co.uk/ftse.php

After the decision only yesterday to leave DS Smith in the FTSE 250 I am deeply cynical about the manner and mechanics of promotion and demotion within the indices. One cannot but help feeling that manipulation of share prices has taken place. This is reinforced by the situation we see today with DS Smith once again above Berkeley Holdings in market capitalisation and also above thirteen Companies presently in the FTSE 100.

I have added 2 small tranches this morning, identical amounts in my ISA and that for my wife. Time will tell if this is a good idea or not.

The quarterly review of the constituents of the FTSE indices is nearly upon us and if I am correct the start of such a process is the release of the indicative files which is due on Wednesday. DS Smith continues to lead the FTSE 250 and there are now nine Companies in the FTSE 100 with market capitalisations less than DS Smith.

One thing I really like about DS Smith is that it clearly communicates its financial targets for the year. Granted, it operates in a steady industry but the communication is clear and it means they can then be held accountable

Looks as if I will now have to revise my suggested 12 month target upwards to 550 - 560. The US acquisition and promotion to the FTSE 100 are the main reasons for this change of view.

DS Smith plc (LON:SMDS) was upgraded by equities researchers at Berenberg Bank to a "buy" rating in a research report issued to clients and investors on Thursday. The firm currently has a GBX 550 ($7.25) target price on the stock, up from their previous target price of GBX 400 ($5.28). Berenberg Bank's target price would indicate a potential upside of 14.46% from the company's current price.

churchtower. I totally concur. Invested a couple of weeks ago, but have known the company for many years. The prospective promotion to the FTSE 100 was the spur I needed to get in as the index trackers will need to buy in and hopefully this will boost the price.
