Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.
I am trying to remember the last time I went to a WH Smith (SMWH) store (and I have never been to one online). My guess would be in 2019. Of course growing up in the 1980s life was somewhat different at many levels, but today WH Smith’s is described as having ‘two core businesses – Travel and High Street’. And it has been no guess for a few years before the rise of Covid-19, that the former was becoming more and more important.
