mike24: 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
finkie: back to below fund raise price of 1050p earlier in the year, might be worth anther look soon as managed to get out at 1350p a month or so back. Any views on the business model as we move into '4th July normal'?!
paleje: Nice. I think the airlines might have some sobering guidance to dish out later in the year, and price wars to contend with says O'Leary, so a while before they return to the profitability and dividends pre-covid. But Smiths won't be discounting, it doesn't matter to them if the planes fly unprofitably as long as lots of people want to get back on them and, judging by the queues at DIY places, IKEA and recently McDonalds, people definitely want to get back to normal or as near as. When a reliable few-minute simple cheap test is approved it will really take off. The only concern I have is another leg down, which doesn't seem likely the way sp's are moving but it has happened in previous crashes/bear markets so 'stay alert' as somebody said.
gooner1886: Wh smith massive in america they own all sorts of outlets. Bargain price just need patience i thought 9 quid was the bottom but i was wrong , this is just a buy and hold they arent going bust
sanks: My bird Sheila has initiated coverage of SMWH with a Shaggy Sell note to clients with a £4.30 Level 4 price target. Hence why I will not risk putting my nob on the table till it gets to that price range Hope this helps
euclid5: Since the Group's trading statement on 12 March 2020, WH Smith, along with many businesses, has seen a substantial downturn in economic activity resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. The duration of the Covid-19 related crisis is uncertain and, as a result, the Group has secured new lending facilities of £120m, which will strengthen its balance sheet, working capital and liquidity position. The new financing arrangements are conditional on raising new equity. As a result, the Group is in an advanced stage of preparation for an equity issue of a maximum of 13.7% of its issued share capital by way of a placing. These financing arrangements, coupled with a broad range of mitigating actions to manage the cost base and cash-flow, will provide sufficient liquidity to deal with this most challenging of trading environments.

martindjzz: It’s a decent business I think, but the price may have fall some more to match earnings prospects.
robertball: Well is this a bargain share or a value trap..Bet airports are quiet
makinbuks: The results are to 31st August, yes , but the forward looking statement I quoted above is for the six weeks post year end. I agree matters in the High street are deteriorating but the other fact I pointed out is that the High Street business in profit terms is only 1/3rd approximately of the whole and once the new US business is incorporated even less. So while your concerns are valid and SMWH may indeed fall short next year of the £60m profit they earned this year on the High Street it will not cause a dramatic collapse in the share price. Have a look at their ability to deliver through the economic cycle increasing the dividend year on year while reducing the shares in issue by 40% since 2007
makinbuks: Getting a placing away at a premium to the market is pretty impressive in these uncertain times. The hike in the dividend is impressive too, given the new shares in issue. It appears the board recognizes that they have wrung all they can from the high street business and can grow Travel only in a limited way organically so now they look for growth by acquisition. This will make SMWH a riskier play but could well be the driver for the next share price leg up. One of my favourite long term holds. Phil Oakley at the IC is supportive and comments often
