COMMENT
It is well managed but most investors don't want to hold a 'sin' stock.
tobacco
BUY
Last year they started buying back shares. It has some growth and is considered defensive. Attractive PE, but faces a compression from its historically high 8% dividend. Clients have objected to tobacco stocks.
tobacco
TOP PICK
Many investors unwillingly to buy tobacco companies - presenting opportunity. Slow growing dividend very attractive. Balance sheet has recently been cleaned up. Recently announced 2.5% share buyback.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly If you are looking for a strong dividend and don't mind owning a sin-based company, then we reiterate BTI as a TOP PICK. The England based manufacturer of well known tobacco brands worldwide trades at a 11x PE and just 1.1x book value. Its growth in earnings (coming from growing users during the pandemic and a business model growing non-combustible product lines) makes it good value here. The company pays a stellar dividend, backed by a payout ratio of under 65% of cash flow and has been using cash reserves to pay down debt. We continue to recommend a $32 stop-loss, looking to achieve a target of $50 -- 24% upside. Yield 7.59% (Analysts’ price target is $49.56)
tobacco
COMMENT
Pays very high dividends. Low growth. Great cashflow, as people are addicted. He has no exposure to the sector. Some investors will avoid these "sin" stocks.
tobacco
DON'T BUY
Pass. Doesn't care for tobacco stocks (or vape companies) given the harm they produce to human health.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly If you are okay owning tobacco based companies, BTI may be a good entry here. The England based company makes well known brands worldwide and trades at a 10x PE. Pandemic related stress is increasing consumption according to Reuters. The company pays a stellar dividend, backed by a payout ratio of only 26% of cash flow. We would trade this with a $32 stop-loss, looking to achieve a target of $50 -- 28% upside. Yield 7.1% (Analysts’ price target is $50.00)
tobacco
DON'T BUY
The tobacco space looks cheap but there is a secular overhang. They are highly profitable but eventually, tobacco sales will disappear. ESG is also a force. Institutional investors may not be able to own this.
tobacco
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Sep 06/19, Up 7%) Likes the sector. Opportunity now, as it's heavily oversold. Take a look at the category and add a second name.
tobacco
BUY
Loaded up with debt, small dividend cut, vaping issue, new CEO, plus litigation. What are the underlying fundamentals moving forward? Asia seeing growth. Elsewhere, volumes going down but prices going up. It's a buy and there's some upside.
tobacco
COMMENT
As a 7-year hold? Investors stay away from tobacco stocks because tobacco causes cancer. Yes, they have a lot of free cash flow and pay big dividends, but he doesn't see huge upside. You buy this for the dividend and a modest stock price rise over time.
tobacco
BUY
They aren't a big player in the vaping industry. Vaping is more and more court regulated. Debt reduction will occur during 2020-2022. He doesn't see major challenges. He sees more growth and would buy looking at the chart and dividend. He also thinks that they might enter into cannabis and they would be well positioned.
tobacco
TOP PICK
The long term dividend track record has been great. The recent issues around vaping and health concerns has caused the share price to drop. It acquired the Reynolds business in 2018 and it is doing well. It is very well valued here. Yield 7.55% (Analysts’ price target is $47.22)
