£ is going to tank. Anticipating a good week ahead for us...

It had a worse fall in the late 90s, from almost £7 down below £3 in 2000. Probably felt like it was in terminal decline then, but even now you would have a ten bagger if you had bought then. Plus many times more in dividends. Maybe this is a similar opportunity, or maybe not, no one really knows. :-)

Whilst I feel for those who bought BATS at above £30, even £40 (with my own being mainly from low £20s to upper £30s {though a few were bought at £40+}) and so, whilst capital gain has been reduced of late, the overall return including income, has been rewarding (and ISA and SIPP purchases comprising most has enhanced benefits), I'm still happy to hold and enjoy the continuing returns. When, as will happen, the price ticks back up to around £35 to £40, I may reduce my holding, either to cover plan costs or to re-invest in other securities. As a long term investor, BATS still ticks boxes for me.

Essential, The problem would seem to rest in the counterfeit blackmarket vapes/liquids THC infused side from what I can see...Whole market segment tarred by counterfeit brush.

graham, given BATS is valued at near £60 billion (even at the current SP) and has over £40 billion of net debt, there better be oodles of cash flow left!. This is going to turn in to Vapegate, over 30 deaths in the US. Would imagine there is a huge range of quality in the Vape devices that people use, including the liquids.

Michigan vape shops have been allowed to put flavoured vapes back on sale for now.A judge has overruled the states emergency ban on the flavoured vapes that has been in force for a fortnight.Don't know how or why this has happened,just reporting.Michigan has a population of 10m,so not a small deal.

Juul stopping the sale of many flavoured vapes before the likely FDA ban coming into force.Vaping deaths standing at 33 according to CNBC today.Philip Morris and Altria share price both up 1.5% at present.I suppose the consensus is that because Juul is seen to be acting responsibly by stopping these flavoured vapes, it will minimise enforcement action from the authorities on the rest of the industry.Or have i read it all wrong in this respect?

Both companies have invested substantially in vaping products etc, but in spite of this those products only represent tiny percentages of their turnover. It's unlikely that countries outside the US will restrict or ban vaping products (they are already regulated much more tightly than they were in the US), but such products may never gain significant traction. Fortunately - so far as BATS and IMP are concerned - they will still be cash generating businesses for many years to come because even if that market declines it is still a long slow decline.

Oddly, I first bought BATS in February 2010 at 2202p, added some last year and this at higher prices and my IRR to date is 7.9%. Yield of 7.5% is quite satisfactory. Cash flow looks fine.

Not many posters on ADVFN have 10year holding periods. Most don't have 10 month holding periods. 10 days more like. The problem at present is more currency related. £ goes down this goes up, £ goes up this goes down. Difficult to tell what the pound will do with Brexit up in the air and US/China trade war. I'm a long term investor so it doesn't bother me.

I had to buy more today: the price is so stupidly too low!!! Just looking at numbers, not ethical, legal, governmental etc etc ... reasons, tells anyone with a brain that works properly that this share will pay back so much in dividends over a decent holding period that the capital cost itself may almost be ignored (and I said a decent, as in long, holding period) before it sinks to whatever price it may. Put your cash on deposit for, say, 10 years, or buy BATS with it: as long as you don't need to draw down in that period, BATS will win, hands down.

It's quite interesting on a day of many double digit percentage rises that the FTSE is almost subdued - until you look at the biggest caps - of which 8 of the top 10 are heavily down - due mainly to Sterling - currently 1.148 to the Euro. RDSB -1.0% BP -2.0% AZN -2.1% GSK -2.6% DGE -3.1% BATS -5.4% ULVR -3.0% RB - 2.0%

Yes, just the strong GBP causing the drop here and IMB, BP and GSK and any large overseas earner.

And the key culprit, reports suggest, comes in the form of black market �thickening agents� like vitamin E acetate. It�s an age old trick among unscrupulous drug dealers: cut down your high-value product (THC oil) with cheap filler ingredients (vitamin E oil). How prevalent is this practice? We can't know for sure given the black market nature of the most THC vaping products, but all evidence suggests widespread use, including one Washington Post article that recently reported: �In Utah, 90 percent of THC products tested in the past several weeks contained vitamin E oil, according to the state health department.� In other words, the vaping outbreak is much more likely tied to underground �Walter White� style THC operations rather than legitimate products offered by the likes of Juul. But that hasn�t stopped the media and policymakers from conflating the two, leading to a widespread perception that legitimate nicotine-based vaping products are the cause of the lung disease outbreak.
