Mondi being hit today, I can't see anything specific?. It has outperformed both SMDS and SKG (relatively speaking) over the past 6 months, so there may be an element of catch up.

Have I posted any bearish comments on SMDS ?. I've only referenced the wider sector de-ratings and whether the cycle is about to roll over.

Source Motley Fool ' If you had invested £1 in packaging producer DS Smith (LSE: SMDS) 10 years ago, it would be worth £12.60 today. A similar investment in the UK All Share index would be worth just £2.60. ‘ DS has gone from strength to strength over the past decade as the company has grown organically and through acquisitions. Net profit has risen 250% since 2013, and I expect this trend to continue as the firm builds on its position in the global packing industry. ‘ The market, however, seems to think otherwise. Since the beginning of October, the stock has lost around 30% and it now changes hands for just under nine times forward earnings — its lowest valuation in five years. ‘ Personally, I reckon that now could be the time to make the most of this rare opportunity and snap up shares in DS at a bargain price. Analysts are expecting earnings per share (EPS) to expand a total of 19% over the next two years, and this growth should help draw investors back to the stock, in my view. ‘ While you wait for a recovery, shares in DS support a dividend yield of 4.6%, projected to rise to 4.9% next year. The distribution is covered 2.3 times by EPS, according to City numbers. ‘ https://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2018/12/04/why-i-think-time-is-running-out-to-buy-these-ftse-100-dividend-bargains/?mc_cid=c891fb8690&mc_eid=48709d4c05

DR Smith apologies >>> Email generated deliveries are very much alive ' Returned from Balares with Franchised IKEA which seemed to use much less cardboard. Spain being a targeted country with SMDS recent takeover. There is certainly room for development there.

Togglebrush. What Coutbries are you comparing too? First world (where we are perhaps more fickle re damaged goods)? In big shops returns counters I frequently see returns due to dings etc from inadequate packaging, and as I believe such paper is recyclable I see it as a good thing to avoid a whole producst scapped for a flakey edge. My gripe and amazement is the amount used by coffee/sandwich shops. Each person going through so much paper and polystyrene each day. I believe some places are talking of customers own mugs as polystyrene are non recyclable. >Email deliveries are very much alive Other than music, I am surprised. How do you get an IKEA book case down the wires? ;-)

Press ' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/markets/article-6469001/MARKET-REPORT-Blue-Planet-plastic-alert-sparks-packaging-company-DS-Smiths-sale.html ‘ Includes AJ Bell’s investment director Russ Mould said: ‘On paper, it is hard to find any major faults with DS Smith’s results.’ ' IMHO I am astounded by the amount of cardboard used in UK. I have returned from 16 years abroad two months ago. I have been overwhelmed by amount used on things from IKEA, MandS, Amazon and others.. Retail stores may be closing but Email generated deliveries are very much alive, well, and using a lot of packaging.

All sectors and shares have reduced like DS Smith, take BAE, Barratt Developments, and others. The cycle after Brexit will sort and once we leave, as we need to leave for democracy to succeed. Things will improve postMay 2019. Fact!!

I agree with EI. MACF in the same sector is being hit harder.

No it doesn't. Mondi, International Paper, Westrock, SKG...etc. It's a global sector sell off, in anticipation of the current business cycle rolling over. The market may be incorrect and there may be one last upswing left, find out over the next few months.

DS share price is well below where it should be due to bexit negotiations, plus market manipulation to take advantage on way back up to 450p price. Bought in at 309 and what a bargain for 50k worth, even if it takes 6 months and doesn’t get back to 460, 470p per share until June 2019. What an opportunity!!! They are brilliantly placed and when they have sold their plastic businesses, as well as released the Portugal and French it’s after Europac purchase approvals by EU, watch it shoot massively upwards.

E-COMMERCE is about 10-12% of revenue for SKG, it should not be overstated, although the segment is growing quickly. Substitution of plastic may be where the main opportunity is.

The cardboard box sector has been heavily hit by fears of a cyclical turndown. Yesterday's numbers from DS Smith show the clear momentum to the sector being provided to box makers by E-Commerce. In my view, the likes of Smith, Smurfit and Macfarlanes should continue to prosper.

Had my eye on this for a long time. Now at a level that is worth dipping my toe in.Had a look at what it is like to work for and the negatives said that it's 'too busy'.That'll do for me.

'fraid I missed the boat - 312! However, no confidence of where it will end up today. Long term though, surely very good value .
