Will be spinning out Kraft. There is no better legitimate business in the world than tobacco. Low-cost, addicted consumers and good growth in developing countries.

This company makes a lot of money selling cigarettes to the Third World. Not a fan of companies that sell products that kill their customers. There is talk of them spinning off Kraft and he would look at this.

Doesn’t have the issue of dealing with too much litigation anymore. Feels they should get rid of some of their businesses and become a more pure play. Good price.

Largest tobacco company. Great stock to be in. However, the company is subject to lawsuits and presently there is a class action lawsuit against the whole tobacco industry. There is a short term risk here, so short term investors should stay clear. Long term investors should use this weakness to buy.

This is the kind of company that should do well in this kind of market. Tremendous cash flow generation. Solid dividend yields. Very little economic impact. Have had some good rulings over the last little while.

Over the last couple of years, there was a strong focus on stocks that generated a strong cash flow. For the first time, there is a marked decline in the use of tobacco products. 4.5% dividend.

Or the last several years, the market has there been very interested in cash flow generating assets. Both for the ability to pay a dividend yield and to generate value over time. This one comes with some legal issues on tobacco but they also have the food side. Technically, food/tobacco seems to be backing off. Moving down towards its 200 Day moving average.

80% of stocks decline when a market peaks. Philip Morris has a very low market beta, in that it kind of does its own thing. Typically it's a stock where people go when they want to hide. If you can pick it up at against trend line support or some intermediate moving average then it's probably worthwhile jumping on board

A classic example where the news just seems to get worse and worse and yet the price continues to climb. It sells for a fraction of breakup value. Low valuations in terms of every $ spent for $ of sales and/or earnings (cash flow) yet has a dividend yield of 4.7% plus all the buy back activity and this is why it's going up.

The tobacco part generates substantial amounts of cash. Restructuring and spinning out some of their other businesses would probably increase its value.
