WH Smith posted Interims for the HY to 28th February 2023 yesterday indicating a strong first half performance ahead of expectations. Group revenue was up 41% to £859m, headline profit before tax and non-underlying items was up to £45m (2022: £14m). 60 new stores have opened so far this year including 11 in Canada, the new store pipeline of over 120 stores yet to open includes 60 in North America. The Group is still investing for growth, capex in the current financial year is expected to be around £150m. An interim dividend of 8.1p per share has been announced, the Group is enjoying a strong start to H2. Valuation is a little unhelpful with forward PE ratio at 18.1x and PS ratio at 1,27x both bottom quartile for the Speciality Retailers market. The Group's balance sheet is leveraged with headline net debt of £378m at 28 February 2023. Share price also lacks momentum and has been drifting sideways for 2 years. The business has growth and profits, but SMWH is a share to monitor for the time being...

Fantasticaly well managed business. Pre pandemic it was all about no debt, organic growth in travel and cost reduction on the high street. Managed very successfully and they published every year a table showing the return to shareholders via buybacks and dividends going back ten years.

It looks like post pandemic is going to be very different. Firstly we have the two acquisitions and now 100 new sites announced, but with it comes a level of gearing. Smart move in my view to do this via a convertible bond with a strike price 40% above current value.

I think thats an indication of what we can expect from SMWH over the next 3 - 5 years

This stock's natural habitat is north of £19.

This is where it lived through 2017- 2019

And to its natural habitat, it will return.

It is as certain as a pack of chewing gum being 20% more expensive in SMWH than anywhere else. LOL

WH Smith will come back stronger post COVID when everything re-opens.

Thousands of "Mom 'n Pop" stationers and newsagents will go to the wall.

SMWH will just hoover up the business of it's bust competitors.

Stocks like this are constituents of what they are calling in the US "the reopening trade". These are stocks that have suffered through closures under lockdown but that should quickly flourish again once society opens back up.

SMWH is a quintessential "reopening" stock IMV.

a nice little earner,
since the onset of C19 sales of consumer "self help books"
has now exceeded £31ml, which is 50% increase on all
UK book retailers, SMWH just need plug this
section a lot better, their out of town retail sites have
window areas, totally wasted, nai

Agree not much resistance till £20

The recovery story is easy to work out here.

The kicker: SMWH was, is and will continue to be a fantastic business.

COVID allowed investors to get in on the cheap

a nice little earner, if smiths can maintain full shelfs
of 25quid diy legal packs, legal fees for probate which can cost
A LOT per letter depending how complex estate is, which
is made a lot simpler downloading correct forms listed in smwh pack
even if you use a solicitor, ie guidance on, prop bank a/c, shares
vehicles bonds life insurance pensions art jewellery iht etc etc
valuing liabilities, there is a will/there is no will,

9/11 cracking rise today,
maybe a few more shorts squeezed tomorrow
11/11 time to move on lots of undervalued shares out their, but...

in the US, some hospitals using covid (without symptons ) positive staff
back to work shows how bad their economy might get hit, plus the prolonged
handover to Democrats going to do damage
