WH Smith plc (SMWH) is one of the UK’s leading retailers of books, newspapers, magazines, periodicals, stationery, confectionary and entertainment products. The first newsagent in the Smith family name opened in 1792, and the company WH Smith was established in 1828. 

Headquartered in Swindon, the UK, the company works in two major sectors: High Street and Travel. Currently, it operates more than 1,400 stores, including 600 stores on the high street and another 800+ in airports, hospitals, shopping malls, train stations and workplaces in the UK and in 30 countries abroad. Its official website was launched in 1999.

Created by Henry Walton Smith and his wife Anna, WH Smith remained the family’s business for many years, growing from a news vendor to a diversified retailer. The company is considered the first retail chain in the world and the creator of the ISBN book identifier.

WH Smith plc (SMWH) is listed and traded on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and is a component of the FTSE 250 Index. WH Smith share price can be found at

Looking at the WH Smith stock price performance at the beginning of 2021, we can note that it was pretty volatile. The price of the SMWN stock went from 1,530p in January up to around 1,700p in February 2021. In the last 1-year period the SMWH share price fluctuated within a range of 584.04p-2,548.00p. 

According to the latest WH Smith plc trading update as of January 20, 2021, the retailer showed a strong performance during the Christmas holiday season, which exceeded the company’s expectations. Despite adopting a new Covid-driven trading environment, revenue in the retail business in December 2020 stood at 92 per cent of revenue in December 2019. But the travel business did suffer, drawing in revenue of just 36 per cent on last year, and leaving the business with revenue of 59 per cent of 2019 overall.

Commenting on the WH Smith stock price performance, WH Smith Group’s chief executive officer, Carl Cowling, said: “Covid-19 continues to have a significant impact on the WH Smith Group, however we are pleased with our performance over the Christmas period which was better than anticipated. This positioned us well, resulting in a better than expected Christmas with sales in December at 92% of 2019 levels. In our Travel business, we saw little change in the environment prior to the current lockdown, as expected, with sales in December at 36 per cent of 2019 levels”.
