Safe, slow growth and paying out of a lot of their earnings as dividends. Reinvesting some dividends into greater growth areas but are limited in growth going forward. Valuation is cheap because of low growth. 7.2% yield.

If you own this one, it is for the dividend, which has always been large. Cash cow. 7.1% yield.

You have people that are dependent on cigarettes and cigars. As a dividend play it could continue, but they have a high debt load. He’s not that keen on investing in a company that kills people but it’s hard to ignore the constant demand for the product.

Tobacco. Prefers Lorillard (LO-N) as they are the most efficient operator. This is also attractive. Steady cash flow generator in a recession resistant type of business. Some overhang in the sector as FDA starts to regulate, so there is some risk.

Tobacco is traditionally a defensive stock to play. There has been a decline in tobacco consumption in the US, but globally there is still a fairly good growth. Strong cash flow so dividend is safe.

Dividend is safe for awhile. Stock price is down. In the long term they have good cash flow, but they they may be at legal liability with tobacco. If willing to take risk may be compensated.

Just completed its financing of US Tobacco and paid over 10% interest on their 30 year bonds. Smoking rates in the US continued to decline. Doesn't own because of his company’s social responsibilities.

Very well run company. Just made a big acquisition of smokeless tobacco company UST (UST-N), which will be very good for them. Strong dividend.

Split into 2 companies, Altria (MO-N) and Philip Morris International (PM-N). This one owns Philip Morris assets in the US, which is a no growth business however, there is no business in the world that is more profitable than the tobacco business. You would own this one for the dividend yield.

Good dividend. Have taken most of the cigarette assets out of the US so don’t pay for litigation anymore. Selling into Russia and China.

Legal challenges that they have faced over the last 10 years have been beaten back in most cases. Going to continue to chug along very nicely. Pretty recession resistant.

Doesn't own this one because of his stand on ethics. If you are buying something that is swimming upstream in terms of cultural and moral issues, it has to be a consideration.

World's largest tobacco company. Undergoing another transition and is being broken up in mid-March into Phillip Morris International and Phillip Morris USA. The sum of the pieces is worth a lot more than the combined entity.
