SMDS - DS Smith - Buy

So if we look back at my chart from the 11th April you will SMDS paid off nicely for us hitting both targets.

Since then the company has moved into the FTSE 100 and has shown good growth over the last year. We have seen a small pull back to the 520 area after profits came in slightly lower than expected.

Technically the RSI & STOCH are shown oversold. Volume is steady at over 4m.

Looking at an entry above todays high. Stop at 500, TP 600.

This is just my opinion of the company and not a trade recommendation

it is true it has had a great run since 2009, anyone buying back then would have seen a 10 fold increase in their investment. I don't know much about the company, but thanks for posting this chart.

 

I would note that its operating margin is steady at about 6% average over the last 10 years but in the last three years it has managed to increase this to around 7-8% which is encouraging as demonstrates some pricing power.

 

I personally would not be buying now, I note the broker consensus has downgraded (although only slightly) and if it met FY18 PrTP target of £429.5mn then I'd say the price now is about right, with mcap at £5.5bn. Definitely something I'd look to buy a bit of in any market correction.

 

Appreciate your post on this, and any other insight into the co. you may have.

Nice analysis Rimmy, always good to get another point of view.

 

Price dropped on the open so it's now an invalid trade for me as I have a strict set of rules I use to enter a trade. Mostly based on technicals with a pinch of fundamentals. Looking at todays volume I would say it has found support but really I need to see a few more days of price action to really see where it is going. 

 

I do find you fundamental analysis interesting. I do a very basic scan through financial reports but nothing as in depth as yourself. I notice you use Sharepad as well. Great bit of kit.

saw that too, and wondered how you handled it. 

I think you have identified here a good co, but price seems to be about right (unless there are other acquisitions or other earnings-beating news I am not aware of.

 

Maybe have a look at SBRY, I think there could be a short term trade there :)

    • The ECB is expected to raise rates again at its meeting this week, but will it be enough to bolster the euro? Source: Bloomberg   Forex Indices European Central Bank Euro EUR/USD United States dollar  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023  What will the ECB do? The European Central Bank (ECB) is expected to raise rates by 50bps at its meeting. What is the background? Like most major central banks, the ECB has been pushed into raising rates in order to combat high levels of inflation. While energy prices have come down, price increases remain above the ECB’s 2% target, and as a result, the bank still views it as necessary to push ahead. No ECB member has dissented from this view of late, leaving markets with little indication that a dovish caucus is forming. Indeed, inflation remains high, but economic data remains resilient. Expectations for a recession, which were widespread as 2022 ended and 2023 began, have been pushed further out, towards the second half of this year and even into 2024, helped by a slump in energy costs that has allayed the worst fears of economists and investors. What is the market impact? If the ECB can send a suitably hawkish message along with the expected 50bps rate hike, then the euro may receive some support against the US dollar. However, euro bulls must be aware that the pair has come a long way since the October lows, and while it only puts a modest dent in the 2022 downtrend, it does mean that the bar for further EUR/USD gains is rather high. This is coupled with negative divergence on the daily MACD indicator, which suggests weakening bullish momentum in the short-term and a general unwillingness to push the rally much further in the near-term. If the ECB is not viewed as being sufficiently hawkish, then EUR/USD may continue to weaken from its eight-month highs, but a move below $1.05 would be the minimum needed to indicate that the sellers have reasserted control. Source: ProRealTime Meanwhile in indices, a weaker euro could give the Dax some fresh impetus, but this would need to be fairly strong to counter worries about a weakening eurozone economy that might ensue. And if the ECB is much more hawkish and provides EUR/USD with a reason to recover then the risk to eurozone stocks is skewed to the downside. Some might argue that, given the huge rally in the Dax this month, some weakness is needed to take the froth out of the index, which may well be pricing in too optimistic a scenario. A drop back towards the 50-day SMA might bring the June and November 2022 highs into view as potential support. This would still leave the uptrend intact. Bulls would welcome further gains in order to cancel out the MACD’s negative divergence that looms large at present. Further upside targets 15,605 and then 15,725. Source: ProRealTime
