Good results today with what looks like eps improvement at least in line with consensus and dps up by 10%. Also positive noises from management about the second half and cost savings from the Reynolds' acquisition. Looks pretty good to me against a background of an uncertain UK economic climate.

preview: A slower first-half for British American Tobacco has been well flagged by management, with the second half top and bottom-line expected to improve. Consensus analyst estimates put EPS at 132p. UBS forecast BATS will report volumes down 6.2%, constrained by tough comparatives in some areas and challenging trading conditions in certain markets, such as Brazil and South Africa, but expected to be offset by strong price/mix up 6.4%, for clean EPS of 132.4p. "We expect a sequentially stronger H2 volume performance leaving FY17 volumes down 3.3% an industry down ~4% and price/mix of +6.5%." "The writing is on the wall for tobacco groups and falling cigarette sales is making British American Tobacco, the third largest stock listed on the FTSE, pivot towards vaping [and] heat-not-burn products," said ETX's Wilson, noting that BATS is up more than 30% since just prior to the Brexit referendum thanks in part to the benefit from the weak pound. "But the vast bulk of earnings still come courtesy of tobacco products, sales of which are expected to continue to slow. The key for BAT is whether it's beating the market decline of around 4%. A ban on cigarette packs of fewer than 20 and plain packaging is hitting sales but prices are rising."

BATS has fallen today ahead of the dividend announcement which, I'll stick my neck out, will be an increase. I reckon 56.4p or 56.5p on an "It's not rocket-science" basis

The fall today is more likely to be connected with the anticipated dilution resulting from the increase in the number of shares which will happen tomorrow (as per today's RNS). Or perhaps is just another day of volatility which has been apparent in the share price in the immediate past.

With expected increase in divi and new investors replacing some of the old investors that decided to sell off, let's see if share price can rise to £60.

Market report British American Tobacco and Imperial Brands slumped on a stumbling wider market as separate strategies by the British and Indian governments to stub out smoking weighed on the cigarette makers. Exposed to the Indian tobacco market through its stake in conglomerate ITC, investors dumped BAT as the government increased levies on tobacco products by as much as 10pc. The company’s heavy weighting on the FTSE 100 dragged down the index, its shares shedding 68p at £52.37. “ITC accounts for 12.5pc of BAT’s market capitalisation, implying a reduction of around 1.5pc for BAT’s share price”, argued RBC Capital Markets analyst Mirco Badocco.

AndrewBaker Agreed pretty much. Somehow the dogooders seem to have a screw loose in their heads when it comes to logic, thinking things through and seeing the eventual consequences. They will then spin statistics to prove their decisions were correct and never admit to bad policy or failure. Just like the crime statistics released today.
