BRUSSELS, 23 January 2020 (Fastmarkets RISI) - DS Smith (DSS) plans to hike its recycled containerboard (RCCM) prices by Euro 60/tonne ($66.5/tonne). The increase will be effective for “all new orders placed from the date of this announcement,” the firm said. DSS ascribed the move to improved economic conditions and stronger demand across Europe.

Should be a good day today - we have hit the bottom. Time to load up

In the absence of imminent bad news (and notwithstanding global pandemics), could this be a bottom-crawling situation? Hmmm...

Brill Jeffian, thank-you. :-) :-) My eyes were going fuzzy trying to spot difference in 2 charts. IIRC one share price chart used to show events, thought it was LSE but not shown on what I saw. With your pointer I can resume my comparison. :-) It also serves as a reminder, when using data sources it's important to know what they represent - and whether they have already been adjusted for such events.

There was a Rights Issue in connection with the Europac acquisition around July 2018 - "DS Smith Plc ("DS Smith" or the "Company") today announces that the 3 for 11 Rights Issue of 293,068,454 New Ordinary Shares at 350 pence per New Ordinary Share announced on 19 June 2018 closed for acceptances at 11:00 a.m. (London time) on 24 July 2018. The Company received valid acceptances in respect of 282,893,119 New Ordinary Shares, representing approximately 96.5 per cent. of the total number of New Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the fully underwritten Rights Issue."

If I look at google finance share price for SMDS 5/1/18 it was circa 407. LSE has around 500 My own data copy has 507 Has there been some sort of share issue (bonus/rights) that would account for difference? I think SMDS are in better shape than 2 years ago, but with this data glitch I'm not sure if I'm comparing like with like. Dave

SMDS is still a bit expensive compaired to its intrinsic value I estimate at 330p using optimistic future cash flows. I would like it to dip a bit more at around 350p so I can replenish as I'd pay a premium for this well run company.

Although having some "skin in the game" is considered important, sadly, the modern day manager has shares handed out as part of their rations with awards for targets achieved. Targets that are known only to the remuneration Committee, that in turn, are drawn from the "back scratcher" pool common to all. Mediocre results from rather well remunerated people.

Very theoretical and theoretically I agree 100% But reality is every CEO is measure on total return to shareholders and thus they obsess about the share price. Moreover a lot of their personal wealth is tied up in the share price. So from my experience they do watch it daily and think of ways to positively impact it

I don't think Boards/CEO's can or should "manage" the share price. Their job is to manage the business, and if they do it well in terms of growing revenues, margins, profits and dividends - the things they actually can control - then the share price should follow.

the 396 on the 13th December looks like a very distant memory at this point! Wonder what the board and ceo have planned to get this back to mid 450s plus.. would be good to get some strategic direction

Quite a hefty downhill today any particular reasons apart from underlying global matters? Notice the share price not adverse to steep ups and downs... traded perhaps? Ideas?

Bareknee, Agreed about the past couple of years but I don't think in those terms. I mainly buy for income with capital growth a nice bonus. I first bought SUS in April 2001 for £4 on a 6%+ yield, so stellar enough for me. As I said, it does have periods "in the doldrums", but as long as it keeps going up in the long term, I'm happy. Avon +720%, Diploma +375%. To get back on topic, I made quite a lot on RPC and SMDS is the replacement for that. I am expecting it to do well over time.

jeffian Re "It has worked very well for me with companies like Avon, Diploma and S&U, all of which had periods in the doldrums but have shown stellar returns in the past couple of years." I hold S&U, and have done for many years, but it's return over the last couple of years has been lacklustre rather than stellar. I'm also a holder of Diploma, which is doing nicely, havn't a scooby about Avon though.
