it has filled the gap below but not the bigger one above it's also got another gap all of the way to a double bottom at about 2390. I reduced my stake after the divi selling at 3160 but kept half invested so I'd be adding on any deep dips. It's more to do with the fact we've had a long rally on the indices since december without any pullbacks so a market correction is due. When that happens large blue chips all get caned together

I imagine this will go below 29, and hang around 28, till the (chartist) dictate move to 24 or back to 29 . Judging from the news cycle I think a double bottom is very possible here. Especially if pound rally happens to 1.40 in summer months.

Beautiful buying opportunity at under 30£. All around positive statement by the chairman today. Sell your house, golf clubs and car and BUY BAT. I am all in

As I said earlier, looks like the £29 +/- gap has now been filled so hopefully back up over the next few days.

If memory serves then Bats expect 5% decline in US sticks anyway.

The company(Altria)is betting on Cronos and Juul for growth as its core cigarette business declines. Cigarette volumes fell about 14 percent from the year-ago quarter. When adjusted for trade inventory movements and one fewer shipping day, the the decline totaled about 5 percent.

Altria on Thursday reported first-quarter earnings and revenue that missed analysts’ expectations. Altria’s investment in Cronos ate into the tobacco company’s first-quarter profits. Ratings agencies downgraded Altria after its investments in Cronos and Juul.

Most probably because of Altria earnings and huge volume declines (-14%). Probably spooked tobacco shareholders overall,IMB also down.

”Walgreens raises minimum age for tobacco sales to 21” US pharmacy chain responds to pressure from regulator over youth tobacco use Walgreens, the US pharmacy and retail chain, will ban customers under 21 from purchasing cigarettes and e-cigarettes, as it responds to pressure from a US regulator cracking down on youth tobacco use. Most US states set the minimum age at 18. hTTps://www.ft.com/content/227ff4cc-65dd-11e9-9adc-98bf1d35a056

Another metric is the number of sticks manufactured and sold.

Mmm, the more i think about it the more i am not convinced about the genrally accepted theory of declining combustible cigarettes sales. This is far from clear and very difficult to measure with population growth going against the idea. Its difficult to measure or prove this decline if in fact there is a decline. Threat of regulation,mmm. Suppose BAT continues to grow FCF by say, 14pc YoY. what would happen to the stock in 5 yrs? It ll double the PE ratio and double the FCF meaning it would quadruple in 5 yrs. At worst this is a doubler in 5 yrs, 14pc annualized, its fine. I cannot see any downside from here

Apr. 18, 2019 10:30 AM ET Tobacco stocks swing lower on reports that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will propose legislation to increase the legal tobacco age in the U.S. to 21 from 18. Altria (MO -3.1%), Philip Morris International (PM -2.5%) and British American Tobacco (BTI -1.9%) are all in retreat off the development.

”Big YTD returns for Big tobacco” Investors have warmed back up to tobacco stocks after hearing management say vaping won't cannibalize traditional cigarettes as much as feared, notes The Wall Street Journal's Carol Ryan. Notably, Altria issued guidance for cigarette volume declines of 4% to 5% per year, level with the trend since 2007. hTTps://seekingalpha.com/news/3450999-big-ytd-returns-big-tobacco#email_link

One comment within the article was that as both the CEO and Finance Director are newly appointed there may be some merit in the Chairman staying on for a period while they be in.

I dont see how the chair story has any relevance to 5 yr BAT future. Its a bit of background noise for sure

Times Bus News today has as its main "news" item a story about BATS being under pressure on corporate governance. _____________________________________ British American Tobacco is under pressure to replace its long-serving chairman to comply with new corporate governance rules. Richard Burrows, 73, has been BAT’s chairman since November 2009. The corporate governance code, published in July 2018 and applying to accounting periods from January, states that “the chair should not remain in post beyond nine years from the date of their first appointment to the board”. However, to “facilitate effective succession planning”, it says that the period can be extended for a “limited time, particularly in those cases where the chair was an existing non-executive director on appointment. A clear explanation should be provided.” __________________________ Full article here (but need to be a subscriber - or buy the paper!): https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/business/bat-boss-richard-burrows-gets-coded-message-to-go-fdt5jwxt9
