typo56: Dogwalker. It may seem unfair but... 1) Short term the dividend income will normally be offset by the capital loss as the share price falls to reflect the ex-div. Therefore, if the divi were bigger, the price drop would be bigger. 2) The dividend value will be reflected in the price of the nil paid shares. i.e. without the dividend, once they go ex rights the nil paid shares would normally track about 359.8p below SMDS (350p exercise price plus the 9.8p dividend they wouldn't be entitled to). In this case they should track about 350p below. In other words, should you wish to sell the nil paids or let them laspe, you'll be receiving 9.8p per nil paid share more for them than you would if they didn't have the dividend entitlement (it effectively adds 3/11 * 9.8p to your dividend per SMDS). Therefore, overall, I don't think you're as hard done by as may first appear.
gettingrichslow: Ali47fish, what advantage would it give? You're not buying the shares 'on the cheap'. If you were, who do you think is subsidising it?? Google 'how do rights issues work' and you will see what I mean. The reason the RI price is lower than the current share price is purely because if the share price drifted lower than the RI price then no-one would take up the offer. That is all. You are not getting them at some sort of 'bargain price'. That is why many people choose not to take up the offer!
gettingrichslow: Dozey3 and Losos and others, I don't understand why you are referring to the size of the 'discount' as if it is a discount like you might find on a car or a holiday or a ton of peas. It isn't. It doesn't get you the shares cheaper! The rights you are given have a tradeable value equal to the difference between the post RI share price and the discounted price, so you are not getting the shares cheaper by buying into the are just putting more money into the company and expanding your holding.
greek islander: I keep picking up the same rumour - that Amazon UK is set to sign a large supply contract with SMDS. Is their any substance to this or is it just an attempt to boost the share price? Does anyone know if Smiths are in any form of discussion with Amazon? I suspect that it has little foundation.
huttonr: Looking at the share price drop - approx 10% since the results - this seems excessive even after the Wansborough closure costs hit - there seems also to have been a read across today from the Mondi drop - which also seems excessive! Is anything else happening - other than general nervous worries?
ed 123: Today's Capital Market Event is not being too well received. Share price down 10p at 369p.

eastbourne1982: Went short a few minutes ago at 3.34, the euro is weak so it will continue to hit the company, this is a good business however the share price has been trading between £2.38 and £3.50ish, the share price was £2.38 in October !! Looks overbought to me. Target £2.80 - £3, stop loss £3.60.
gargleblaster: This was in Moneyweek on Jan 9th - sorry know it's a bit late! Packaging group DS Smith (LSE: SMDS) has been one of our core holdings for some time. An innovative approach has made it the packaging provider of choice for many of the world’s biggest consumer-goods companies. The changing nature of food retailing (from hypermarkets to discounters, online and convenience stores) and greater use of the internet in general, means packaging needs are changing. Customers now come to DS Smith because of its lighter, lower-cost packaging and its ability to cut customers’ overall costs. Also, Sweden’s SCA Packaging was one of the best acquisitions we’ve ever seen from a valuation perspective, and it has been integrated far more smoothly than original forecasts suggested in terms of profit delivery. We expect management to continue to consolidate the European packaging market over the next two to three years, and also to take market share organically, both of which will drive the share price higher. The stock is on a modest price/earnings ratio of 11-12 and yields 4%. James Lowen, fund manager, JOHCM UK Equity Income.
mirandaj: After trebling shareholders' money over the past five years, recycled packaging firm DS Smith has become a victim of its own success, with some fund managers taking profits and selling down their positions at the start of 2014. But Tom Becket, who runs money for Psigma Investment Management, believes the selling and share price falls have been overdone. Over three months shares have fallen 9pc to trade at 312p last week, which Mr Becket said should tempt investors to buy. "The company has gained substantial market share in northern Europe, through acquisitions. With a strong balance sheet the firm could easily do more transactions that are immediately accretive to their earnings," he said. "The share price has recently come back, but those buying in now will be getting a cheaper price and a healthy yield at 3pc." DS Smith provides corrugated packaging solutions, such as cardboard boxes, as well as recycling services, for major companies such as Nestlé. Mr Becket said: "The company could one day be a one-stop service for Europe-wide companies, such as major supermarkets. This potential organic growth is currently underappreciated by the investment community and could lead to earnings surprises in the years ahead."
