Hit in last couple of days. 7% yield, growing at 9% a year. Headwinds from an ESG perspective. Very inexpensive at 11x earnings. Steady performer as far as total returns. Have to ask yourself if, over time, institutions are less likely to own it.

Cash cow, but how much growth is there? What are its long-term opportunities? Tobacco side of the business is in decline. Vaping, the saviour, now under pressure. Don't be baited by the high dividend. Not a good result if you get the dividend, but stock price declines.

There is much controversary around their vaping business. Smoking used to be on the rise in the developing world, but that may be plateauing as well. The dividend is likely safe. You won't make a 10% return per year, but a good holding.

It has a great dividend. The balance sheet has gone no where and the fair market value is 35% below current levels. Very, very expensive. Cigarettes will remain around a long time, but it is not the kind of stock that would let him sleep well at night. It is trading at 82 times book value -- way too risky. Their big share buy back might backfire in that the there may not be enough liquidity to create support in time of trouble.

Buy it for the dividend? No. Earnings are not growing. Their vape products are flat and falling; volumes are decreasing. The dividend isn't growing much either, at only 5% yearly vs. 8% for the wider market. If they don't execute on their plans, you could get more pain down the road. The dividend is outgrowing their free cash flow, so down the road their payout ratio will become too high.

He used to own it personally, but not for their clients. Cigarettes are the most profitable business in the world because customers are relatively price insensitive. They produce a product that is addictive for the customers, which makes for a great company and a great industry. Problem now though is that tobacco usage is falling off faster than people expected. It’s still early in the game for e-cigarettes but they aren’t coming up as successfully as expected. Consumers products stocks are underperforming, they were great until interests rates started going up. He sold his holding.

Tobacco stocks have been tremendous performers post the crisis, not only because they are a fairly stable industry, they give a tremendous dividend and grow it. In an environment of low interest rates, people are looking for yield, and this has definitely been a safe haven. There is consolidation going on in the industry, which provides a floor for the stock.

The attractive thing about this is the dividend yield. As interest rates start to rise, dividend attractive companies have less appeal. The company itself is still doing very well. Internationally there is more and more resistance to smoking. However, 20% of the people globally still smoke. Outside of China, this company controls about 29% of the market. They have also moved aggressively into electronic smoking. At 14.5X earnings, this is a pretty good place to be.

Likes this as a good solid dividend payer. Despite the fact that there is a 3%-4% decline in cigarette consumption on an annual basis, they have done a tremendous job of harvesting their cash flow. Japan had increase the excise tax, which has diminished demand and resulted in an intense price competition internationally. This is a really good entry point. In the last 5 years, their dividend is up 18%. Yield of 4.58%.

Yielding a little over 4%. Earnings and cash flow growth is in the 9% range. Not a cheap stock right now. Cigarette companies have margins that are in the 60%-70% range so they don’t have to grow their revenues to have it flow to the bottom line in profitability. Debt to equity ratio is only at 61% so they can leverage the balance sheet and buy back shares if they want. Prefers companies that increase dividends rather than buying back shares.

Has done very well. Really represented a good place to hide. Great distributions through their dividends. Altria (MO-N) is the domestic (US) side of the tobacco play and has much, much more regulatory risks. Growth is decent and the dividend is good.

Recently sold his holdings because he had had a tremendous return. Tobacco stocks are very defensive and he didn’t want to be that defensive. As interest rates creep higher, the stock essentially rolls over. A better entry point would be around $80.

4% dividend is good, but not great. A few acquisitions were put together. But he does not like the cigarette business. Too many laws working against you and getting worse. There is a trend toward people getting healthier. It has a beta of 1 so it may not be that defensive. Not a lot of growth potential.

(A Top Pick May 2/13. Down 10.99%.) Good Steady Eddie type of company. If the stock got under $80, he would be buying more.

For those who have no ethical concerns, tobacco stocks are great. From a practical point of view, concerns about litigation risks means that the valuations are very, very low. Low valuations coupled with high dividends, attached to the emerging markets, have worked very, very well. His preference would be British-American Tobacco (BTI-N).

Philip Morris (PM-N) or Anheuser Busch (BUD-N)? If he were picking a sin stock, hands-down it would be tobacco. Because of potential litigation liability attached to it, they are relatively cheap stocks with big, fat dividends. Very tied into the Vietnamese and Indonesian markets and are going to be a big growth story going forward.

Likes this but doesn’t own at this point because he has rotated out of defensive names and into more cyclicals. Long-term this is great. Good yield of 3.8%.

Tobacco companies have pulled back from their highs. They have very good pricing power as well as great free cash flow. Pay good dividends. You have to weigh these things against regulatory risks, etc. Cheap.
