WH Smith PLC has announced a significant change in share ownership, with Causeway Capital Management LLC acquiring additional voting rights, bringing their total to 8.15%, as reported on April 27, 2024. The Los Angeles-based investment firm now holds over 10 million voting rights in the UK-based retailer. This move might signal increased investor confidence and potential strategic influence by Causeway Capital in WH Smith's future operations.

What's the divi yield at this price? 3 per cent ?

Are those 'extra' closures in the US msrket I wonder?..

IF so, that may suggest SMWH are at risk of prioritising
space expansion over quality.

Needs to be watched.

Yes, but they don't own their locations, they are leased - hence the £1 bn in net debt.

History is littled with successful UK retail formats running in to trouble in the US market. Perhaps SMWH will be an exception to the general rule.

justice, Woolworths was an iconic British brand, as was BHS...(just two examples from a very long list).

It's a retailer that is betting very big on the US market. Can SMWH replicate their UK success stateside, is key to the valuation.

So including lease liabilities, SMWH net debt is now over £1 bn and a chunk of their current borrowing needs to be refinanced in 2026 - and this is currently at an ultra liw ZIRP era rate.

I've got this on a watch list, however ABF (Primark) is available on 13 X approx, with a net cash position if you net off lease liabilities.

Is SMWH on 13 X such a bargain, given significantly higher gearing..?.

The North American result looks mediocre, on this read at least.

Price is recovering well. will it go back to 1260???
Posted at 25/4/2024 08:47 by hopefulalways
Yes, crazy
I've topped up ......
Don't understand why this share isn't attractive to the market?

SMWH, rns shows how well this co is managed, a long term holding of mine. Bang on strategy and results coming through. Hopefully share price growth will continue to reflect this. Apart from LfL growth another 100 travel stores will fuel growth in coming year
