British American Tobacco, after earlier in the week revealing its agreement to buy the rest of Reynolds American, also attracted plenty of positive analyst comment. Citi on Thursday said BAT has a strong standalone story, with some of the best organic sales growth among European staples, but that Reynolds makes it even stronger, adding about 4% to EPS and 8% to FCF/share.

I'm puzzled as to why BATS has fallen back from £50 AFTER the £ has fallen against the US$, when so much of BATS profit comes from stronger currencies abroad. Yes, debt buying Reynolds will be there, but won't be a problem, given the cash that BATS generates; and the enlarged market/share it is getting will be very supportive of turnover and profit. Add in any drop in US business tax rates, and what is there not to like? The market will revalue BATS soon, and once the £50 resistance level has been drilled through, which it will be, then it will then become a supportive floor, IMHO.

BAT takeover of Reynolds good for dividend, says Hargreaves Lansdown British American Tobacco (BAT) has taken control of Reynolds for $49 billion (£40 billion), which Hargreaves Lansdown said should push up both earnings and dividends. Steve Clayton, fund manager at Hargreaves Lansdown, said the deal ‘makes a lot of sense’ for BAT as they ‘already had billions tied up in Reynolds’ but now they have more money tied up and full control of the company and cash flows. ‘The States is an attractive market, with good pricing dynamics, and BAT can also take Reynolds’ portfolio of new generation tobacco products and sell them worldwide,’ he said. ‘We can’t ignore the debts that BAT is taking on to fund the deal and in the short term the stock has become a bit more risky as a result. But tobacco is a very cash generative business and we expect the enlarged group to be able to pay the debts down quite quickly.’ While the company is paying down the debt, Clayton predicted enhancement of earnings growth and ‘maybe the potential for a faster pace of dividend growth too’. ‘The sheer scale of the enlarged BAT raises the pressure on the remaining players to bulk up too, and attention is likely to turn to Imperial Brands, who look more and more like a minnow swimming in a tank of big, hungry fish,’ he said.

Ex-d 16th. March, so natural rise in the price anyway: helpful for someone buying now on belief Reynolds deal will be good, with an out at a higher price before it goes ex-d. Personally, I'm in for the long haul, for reasons given before. This is one share that beats a deposit account by a country mile, and as long as you can tie up the capital - ie: don't use instant access cash - where else is so safe, longer term?

Telegraph: British American Tobacco became the biggest laggard, shedding 182.5p to £45.80, as it agreed to a $49.4bn takeover of its US rival Reynolds American after it upped an earlier offer. In its wake, ratings agency Moody’s also downgraded its rating on the cigarette maker to “Baa2”.

Buying or buying more on any price dips looks good. The Reynolds deal will only improve trading and results for BATS, for reasons given in my above blog number 924; so fill ur boots, lol.

The price to buy Reynolds outright will be higher, but worth it. The no-burn technology to add to vaping, the likely further fall of the £ against the $, less US corporate taxes, no new competitors (who'd start a tabacco company now, lol?!), committed customers (as addicts are), little price resistance (same reason), reliable high dividend etc etc ... What's not to like about BATS?
