You said ITC overpriced, but I think this is a hidden jewel in BATs crown, Bats get roughly $540 million a year in dividends.Whats the stake worth roughly 17 billion. They could always sell it and we all get a special or just keep it. I would love Bats to bid for ITC but don't think they can I think Indian gov owns 30% so I suppose they may see it a Indian sovereign wealth fund in a way.Either way ITC good for Bats.

ITC paid a special dividend this year, of course that's a nice bonus for BATS, ex div 21st December for another 57.72p from Bats.

In a moment of boredom and remembering (monty I think) the post about BATS owning 29% of ITC I found the following by scouring the internet.

BATS holds 3,619,614,150 shares.
Each ITC share is worth 438.85 rupees which equates to £4.23
BATS has a stake worth over £15billion (£15.311bn almost)

This yeat ITC paid a total of 15.5 rupees in divi's (there was a special div.) and hence £540m would have been received by BATS this year.

I see Imperial Tobacco ups it dividend and with buybacks look good.Hopefully Bats ups dividend to 240.9 and start buybacks these companies are cash cows.

Looking at the fundamentals and valuation of BATS and PM, I have to conclude that either BATS is grossly undervalued (assuming PM is fairly valued) or PM is grossly overvalued (assuming BATS is fairly valued)

I assume the former. BATS is extremely undervalued compared to PM.

BATS is an FCF machine with moderate growth tendencies.

Strongly positioned in new categories, second only to PM and leader in vaping.

BATS is more diversified regionally and across products than PM.

BATS' valuation offers plenty of room for improvement.

I would definitely feel more comfortable with BATS than with overvalued US stocks.

If BATS falls by 8-10% in a broad market panic sell-off I will probably buy. 10.5% dividend yield would be too tempting and with a payout ratio of less than 60% on FCF a safe bet.

As they say, if the dividend is higher than the FCF valuation you should be able to assume an attractive valuation.

BATS ... you should keep an eye on it...

dave: Think of BATS as being a big annuity fund. You put your money in (£5k for me so far) and out pops about £420 a year - split over four payments.

If, after actually receiving that income each year if I so decide, I can cash in whatever is left of the BATS share value. If there's nowt left then it really IS like an annuity. However, for that to be the case this company would need to go bankrupt. Oh, and ITC in India where BATS own 29%.

And by the way, capital decimation would imply one tenth of the capital is destroyed. So even in your explanation I'd be left with 90%

Coincidentally, my holding in BATS is down 10.05% from my entry point on 19th Sept 2023 at £27.219 per share. The 10 year chart show me this is the low point in those 10 years. I am sorely tempted to add another £5k here.

so why oh why are our BATS shares subdued and struggling to attract investors with a healthy dividend yield???

I have a modest holding in BATS of £5,000 gaining me 182 shares on my first purchase (for BATS) on 19 Sept '23.

Looking at a 10 year share graph I see the share price was over £55 on 1st May 2017.
Interestingly, the most recent high point was 20 Sept '23 just one day after I bought.

I am tempted to invest a further £5k at these low prices (£24.31 as I write this) if only to reduce my average price. But, IS THIS THE LOW POINT?

The 29% of ITC Limited (NSE:ITC) that BATS own is worth 29% of £54bn - about £15.6bn (this is based upon the ITC cap. of 5.44 trillion Indian Rupees and each Rupee is worth about 1p )

I see little wrong with investing more - it's just a timing issue.

Definitely going to be under £24 . Now Dividend yield is over 10% - already told everyone here that BATs is unloved and unwanted due to high debt and in this high interest rate environment , this Co is under pressure

In this high bank interest rate cycle High dividend yield shares are not the order of the play . BATs has two fundamental problems in this high interest rate cycle - 1) diminishing growth in those Western countries where BATs in the past relied its revenue and needs to find new market to maintain revenue .
2)increasing high debts level making service more difficult .
Thus something has to give going forward , dividend has to be cut to service this hug debt level IMO
