andrewbaker: Interesting article from the SeekingAlpha website: 'British American Tobacco said demand for its "glo" device overwhelmed supply in its Japan test marketing as global cigarette giants shift focus to the "heat but not burn" category amid declining smoking population. Philip Morris (NYSE:PM) announced earlier this month that it had more than doubled the supply of its IQOS tobacco device but it was still not enough to cover demand. BTI +1.1% premarket.' And as I posted a short while ago £50, once broken up through, will become a solid support level going forward: it's yet to be tested, and maybe even £51 will hold. This is a good share to buy and hold: the dividend gives better returns than a deposit account, and as long as one doesn't commit capital that will be needed in the short to medium term, your deposit increases too, courtesy of capital growth in the share price. Buy or buy more, especially if £50 does get tested for any reason.
jamesjamiebarlow: What we expecting this to do to the share price then?
stepone68: Keep posting Andrew - the share price is responding well.
grahamburn: Andrew. Not sure you are giving good advice here. Historically, the share price has usually dropped by a similar amount as the dividend due on the "ex-date", so a purchaser now will not benefit significantly. However, if you're saying buy BATs for a substantial dividend and medium to long term capital growth, then I would concur with you fully.
grahamburn: Andrew. Where do you get "ex-dividend in a while" from? Final dividend was paid early in May. Interims announcement usually end of July, with ex-div end of August and payment end of September. Or is your "in a while" a "couple of months"? edit: Just to be clear, I don't disagree with any of your analysis otherwise. Great share price and dividend performance over the past 15 years or so.
miata: ygor706 6 Apr'14 - 19:51 - 703 of 706 0 0 Miata - about 9 months ago you commented on my statement that I had no feel for the pulse of the BAT share price and that the received wisdom is that it is a growth stock. That has never been my view, so I checked and actually I said the opposite, commenting on that view by someone else. I'm sorry if I gave you the wrong impression. "Its the 'genuine growth prospects' that I would say is contentious." (post 441). "The point I was attempting to make was about the 'genuine growth prospects' of the tobacco industry (mentioned in post 438) in that I did not see that there were major growth prospects outside China and even there the business would be for local not International companies." (post 446).
ygor706: Miata - about 9 months ago you commented on my statement that I had no feel for the pulse of the BAT share price and that the received wisdom is that it is a growth stock. After over 12 months of appalling performance you may (or perhaps not) be interested to hear that I am still here and my gut is beginning to tell me that things are about to perk up. Improved earnings in 2013, the expiry of the RJR standstill agreement in July and encouraging developments with ecigarettes are making me feel that I should be topping up. 2014 unlikely to produce a sparkling increase in earnings but 2015 looks more encouraging. Plain packaging looks to be a non event to me. Any further views?
andrewbaker: Buying own shares to hold in treasury, and being much involved in e-cigarettes, makes BATS a good longer term holding. and the dividend payments help a lot too! lol. Even with smoking reducing in the developed world, BATS has doubled its share price in under five years, and paid out lots in divis for its shareholders too. For long term cash, it's far better than any deposit account I know of. Disclosure: long BATS.
asagi: Hi MIATA, I would not want to pay 15.4 times earnings for 5% profit growth. Unless people are buying BATS for the dividend (forecast 4.3%). Might income investors prefer Shell, 5.0% forecast (worse earnings growth forecast) or HSBC (4.6% forecast yield, with better growth forecast than BATS). In March, analysts were forecasting 230p EPS from BATS in 2013. Today, that is 220p. In six months, market expectations for earnings growth at BATS has fallen from 13.5% to 8.6%. That's quite a material change in expectations and may explain the fall from 3800p to where we are today. It also shows the importance of the buyback. Three things: 1) little chance of share price growth unless expectations of earnings growth pick up again (how likely?). Who wants to own a share when they cannot imagine a scenario whereby it would rise? 2) regulatory pressures, falling volumes are going to hit profitability MORE with time. 3) if the market decides that the stock is ex-growth, it will get a P/E of 10, not 15+. 4) there are better shares out there 5) cashflows are in decline. Timescale: dunno. If forecasts keep falling, so will the shares. There is nothing to suggest that BATS deserves a higher rating. After 2013 year is reported, if the 2015 forecasts come through showing sub-inflation growth then that could be the end of the 12+ rating. 2013 cashflow could be interesting. So, I'd suggest that we could see a material move within six months. Asagi (short BATS)
