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.

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.

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.

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)

They carry some debt. Pays a 6.6% dividend. It's underperformed in the past year, because they made a big US acquisition, and the FDA punished and targeted this sector until its bosses changed a few months ago. Ex-dividend, BTI generates $1.5 billion free cash flow, which will pay down debt aggressively. Has a good history of dividend growth. This may not climb immediately, but you can collected the dividend until then. He likes it.

There has been a sector rotation out of tobacco and staples into the high high-growth type stories. Good entry point.

This is the tobacco stock he *would* own if he owned any of them. This is a low-growth industry. There might be a catalyst for growth from heat-not-burn consumption of tobacco but he is looking to invest in companies with more growth opportunities in the fundamental business.

The 15-year total return on the stock is 9.3X in Cdn$, which is 930%. This is currently on sale, because last year they purchased the remaining portion of Reynolds American that they didn’t own, giving them a bit more debt than normal. A very sticky business model. Dividend yield of 3.4%. (Analysts’ price target is $77.88.)

He likes sin stocks and particularly likes tobacco. They give you dividend increases of substantial order. He particularly likes this which is effectively a Commonwealth story with the emerging markets. You don’t have much exposure with the US, and as a result, the risk of litigation is much lower. Good story and the dividend is attractive and grows slowly over time. Buy this on the dips, and you will be pretty happy.

British American Tobacco. Only held by his wife (non-smoker). Favorite tobacco company. Likes the global exposure and the growth possibilities. Would not be surprised to see them someday increase their exposure in the US.

The E-cigarette market has affected the stocks. Little volume growth from emerging markets, but they keep rewarding shareholders. Good company.

(A Top Pick Aug 24/11. Up 19.19%.) The only thing that did well last year was tobacco and cheese. A little bit high on the multiples right now, so don't chase it. Still likes. Buy on weakness.

Very large tobacco company. Very popular because it has a growing business in emerging markets. He has never been comfortable with litigation risks that tobacco companies face. Also many governments will be putting through austerity programs and excise taxes on this industry will be going up. Starting to see price competition. 3.84% dividend.
