30 April 2019

DS Smith today issues a pre-close trading update in respect of the year ending 30 April 2019.

This from TMF written by Roland Head;

A FTSE 100 growth and dividend stock I’d buy and hold forever

A strong performance

FTSE 100 cardboard packaging specialist DS Smith (LSE: SMDS) is a relatively new investment for me, as I only bought the shares earlier this year. But I’ve been following the stock for a while and believe there’s a good long-term story here.

Figures released today show that the company’s steady growth continued last year. Sales rose 12% to £6,171m during the year to 30 April, while pre-tax profit climbed 35% to £340m.

I hold these, having only bought into the firm on 22 May 19.

Ian.
