car1pet: From Sharecast yesterday "Tobacco stocks were also wanted with analysts at Barclays pointing out that a ban on rival JUUL's e-cigarettes could double British American Tobacco's profits from its Vuse product. In financial terms, BAT's e-cig losses in the US of nearly $350m in FY 2021 could turn into a profit of approximately $160m. "With increasing prices, reduced trade margins and scale benefits in US e-cigs, we estimate BATS could grow US e-cigs EBIT to c$600mn+ in FY25. "And with last week's developments in the US e-cig industry, BATS US e-cigs EBIT could be even higher."
redbaron10: Yes I see the Altria share price in US is being squashed.Interesting to see the fallout on BATS and IMB tomorrow.Up or down?
redbaron10: If you're looking to add to already existing positions you don't just randomly make purchases without thinking of the timing of results that are due, or important economic data points,that could unduly affect the share price at any given point,well that's the way i invest anyway.I am indeed a long term holder but i add at the opportunities the share price might be depressed at any given time for a reason.
redbaron10: Oh well,so much for my theory of the ftse dipping on political instability here and a possible change in PM after a confidence vote.We live in strange times where news like that doesn't even move the market here.Either the market doesn't care what politically happens, or the economy and markets are being kept afloat by commodity prices globally, and the weak pound is helping exports.Nice rise again today so far.No real pullback in BATS share price which is a pity as i would like to buy some more but saying that price strength going into an update is good.The exit from Russia is the only real concern on earnings but the NGP growth story should offset the negatives there,hopefully.
aaspell: I don't post here often, I have no reason, I don't analyse every movement, comment or news article. What I do know is she's a good divi earner, share price has gone up nicely over the last 6 months and she's currently (in my opinion) still under priced. I moved from smoking to Vaping - it's a hell of a lot cheaper so moving to such markets in theory will downgrade profits etc etc. (on the plus side less vapers will die than smokers) so the revenue stream is longer. For every crisis from Brexit through the pandemic to the Ukrainian war and price increases makes a nervous smoker more nervous and hence smoking more. I am certainly not an ethical investor I simply try to find an investment that will make a reasonable return over a reasonable period. I think BATS still has legs to go higher
redbaron10: I agree with your assessment of £40 but everything will have to pan out perfectly imho.If the momentum in NGP revenues continues and the growth in the user base of these products carries on as in BATS guidance forecasts, then this certainly helps big time pushing the share price higher.Markets love growth stories.Fully mature,stagnant growth industries or sectors will remain unloved now that technology shares have arrived that offer dynamism, and huge upside potential, despite the risks.Younger fund managers and investors find growth and new industries and technologies a lot more exciting as an investment, so this will become historic and will always work to the disadvantage of companies like this.However saying that if oil prices and consequently inflation remain high,or possibly goes even higher,then value high yielding stocks like tobacco will stay in demand.My one fear is that central banks are beginning to take active steps to raise interest rates and they hope by doing so to quell rising inflation.I don't know the answer,but if the FED raises rates as aggressively as the markets think they will do, then a lot of the inflationary pressures could disappear relatively quickly thus limiting in my view the prospects of the share price here rising much further.We as investors here,have ridden the rising share price tide, thanks in large part to the good results, but also in no small measure thanks to the switch from growth to value stocks because of inflation.The inflation element giving the share price a rise here will not always be there if central banks quickly control inflation.I don't know to what extent the wish and desire is, of central banks to get a firm grip on inflation.Is this switch from growth into value shares a temporary or 'transitory'thing, or is it more permanent? Do you stick or twist buying more stock here? We know the share buybacks will maintain a floor price for the shares to some degree,but will investors disappear here when inflation recedes? For the moment we can adopt a wait and see approach imho.GLA holders
ygor705: The share buybacks seem to be having a much bigger impact on the BAT share price than is usually the case for a tier 1 company. Is also being conducted at a sensible time by the Board after years of a steady drift down. Many ethically based investors are probably long gone so a new institutionally-sized buyer is maybe have a disproportionate effect on the share price The Board are to be congratulated on progress thus far.
redbaron10: Imho if oil keeps rising, and inflation stays at these elevated levels of 7.5%, then BATS share price momentum will continue.We won't get another US CPI figure until next month, and the FED isn't raising rates until March, so we can continue in the sweet spot we're in here for another month.We have the tailwind of very good results behind us so gradual gains are still to be had.If Russia invades Ukraine or a nuclear deal with Iran comes about to release extra oil onto the market then a re-evaluation may be necessary.Always intending to hold for the dividend income but with buying interest still apparent i might re-invest my dividends here.Especially post the results today.
redbaron10: There are different ways to make money.Those who sold pre dividend dates and for four years with share price decline here that strategy in that market worked then.There were few buyers of BATS so it was a pretty reliable punt in hindsight.And fair play to those with that strategy.This is a different market now with inflation rising and investors seeking the yield via a dividend and want to hold this stock.This is where LTH or longish term holders make their gains and money.Timing markets is never easy.We just happen to have some tailwind at the moment for the share price here.Who knows how long that will continue.Mr Market will no doubt have a say in that!!
redbaron10: car1pet you're right it does seem to be a case of follow my leader in respect of the BATS share price responding to the US BTI price,and not the other way around.I suppose the US market being bigger then that's where the major buying of British American Tobacco stock takes place, hence the bigger influence on the overall stock price comes from that quarter.I also appreciate 'cable' currency movements (between GBP/USD) also has a bearing and an effect to complicate things as well.
