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

The WORLD HEALTH ORG writes in its 2017 report that it is only measuring the smoking rates in 39pc of the world population!! What about the other 61pc? What about population growth? Price increases and government tax revenues too. BAT in its 2018 annual report is pretty confident about growth in market share, growth in volume, growth in cash flow etc. The world health org has said that by 2050 there will be more smokers than in 2000. Although litigation scares and continuing bombardment of " declining smoking rates" rhetoric has short term effect on the share price, the long term share price will be determined by free cash flow, which will grow handsomely for BAT and Phillip Morris, and share price will follow. Moreover, the harder governments try to stop big tobacco the harder these guys work and being more efficient/profitable. CONCLUSION- BAT is a wonderful 20yr investment with a significant margin of safety priced in at current price. BUY MORE.

Tobacco stocks retreated, with British American Tobacco and Imperial Brands both weaker as traders pointed to a Wall Street Journal report that US pharmaceutical chain Rite-Aid will stop stocking e-cigarettes due to fears over their appeal to children and teens.

Bad news for Philip Morris, good news for BATS, Imperial and others? "Philip Morris shifts focus to ‘smoke free’ nicotine products" Flagship IQOS e-cigarette brand not yet approved in US and researchers have questioned its benefits But while the US-based group touts the decision as a historic switch that will reduce consumer risks, its flagship IQOS e-cigarette brand has not yet been approved in the US and experts maintain Philip Morris has yet to satisfy them on health issues. Dr Glantz said research shows that heated tobacco products still release ultrafine particles that transmit nicotine into the lungs. He also pointed out that his team had found that, of 24 medical tests of metrics such as blood pressure and lung function undertaken by Philip Morris on IQOS users, none showed a detectable difference between IQOS and normal cigarettes. Other researchers have said there may be higher liver toxicity in IQOS users and the same deterioration in users’ arteries as for smokers. hTTps://www.ft.com/content/d26927da-57a7-11e9-a3db-1fe89bedc16e In its fourth-quarter results for 2018, Philip Morris said shipments of its heated tobacco products were up 14.2 per cent to 41.4bn units. Cigarette shipment volumes were down 2.8 per cent to 740.3bn units. Analysts at UBS said in a report published last month that “the most important catalyst for investor perception [of heated tobacco products] will be the launch of IQOS in the US”, which they said they expected in the second half of this year.

"Nielsen’s data track sales in only a minority of the US stores that sell cigarettes and have in the past shown larger declines than were subsequently reported by tobacco companies. Even so, analysts said they were a meaningful signal of a step-change in cigarette sales." More smoke without a fire? (pun intended) hTTps://www.ft.com/content/8964014c-5598-11e9-91f9-b6515a54c5b1

it would be interesting to see how much public money is wasted in fighting big tobacco through the courts now that would be a real eye opener. Surely it just makes sense to enforce reasonable restrictions and educating is far more cost effective than the route the FDA take. Expose on the FDA costs would be a great angle for big Tobacco to take highlighting this fact.

"That's a good point how come sales are dropping 3% YoY but revenues are increasing?" Check the cost of a packet of smokes!!! That is why Revenues are rising,despite sales of cigs dropping.

And not helping either.. ......... tobacco stocks tumbled after figures from the US showed cigarette sales had weakened in March. Imperial Brands fell 4.1 per cent, or 108.5p, to 2519.5p and British American Tobacco fell 1.9 per cent, or 59.5p, to 3119p. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/markets/article-6882901/MARKET-REPORT-Investors-jump-aboard-Stagecoach.html

Yep, poor day.. Market report: ........At the other end of the large-cap index, tobacco companies fell on Wednesday after the US Food & Drug Administration said it is conducting an investigation into reports over several years of e-cigarette users experiencing seizures. Imperial Brands ended the worst performer blue-chip performer, down 4.1% and British American Tobacco ended down 1.7%. Tobacco companies are trying to shift away from combustible cigarettes by embracing electronic devices as an alternative to smoking. Imperial Brands produces its 'blu' vaping device as part of its Next Generation Product range, while BAT's flagship tobacco heating product is Glo. US peer Philip Morris International was down 1.4% in New York and Altria Group - which holds a stake in e-cig pioneer Juul Labs - was down 1.9% Alliance News

@Micha14 Declining Smokers is factual. 2-3% odd each year I believe. Revenues however UP, due to price hikes/cost reductions so margins risen. Global tobacco smoking rates are falling. Fewer traditional smokers coming through the ranks, instead they;re using JUUL, Vaping ,Iqos etc etc.

The 2018 BAT annual report is outstanding. The other thing with tobacco is that people are talking about declining revenues and declining smokers for years. How factual is this assumption? In reality global smoking rates may well be increasing, its v hard to measure. The WHO admits it only keeps statistics on 39pc of smokers, what about the other 61 pc? BATs numbers look like a growing company would you belueve it! Dont just do something, SIT THERE!

The FDA says it is responding to 35 reports of vaping associated with seizures, mostly involving youth and young adults.
