creditcrunchies: I've given up seeing this dog go up (and I've got over 1000 of these shares) all I can say is if they cut the dividend it'll end up testing the financial crisis low. All I need to do is get some software to show my portfolio minus the BATS share price and I'll be a bit more relaxed. Somebody soon will end up driving through the porch door of BATS investor relations building, do a few hand brake turns in the BATS car park to let off some steam. It is that bad

stewart64: If a Domestic share had the fundamentals of BATs it would be trading at 60% today's level. These internatonals are seen as Corbyn and Brexit proof, that's why I am interested. But they are expensive. Taylor intangibles on the balance sheet, owned its land bank debt free, strongest balance sheet in the FTSE 100 bar none, profit margin 26%, recently traded at 127p or a fwd. p/e of 6. Puts the BATs price in perspective with its 80 billion of debt. One's Corbyn proof (BAT) the other isn't. ( no position on TW just now btw)
creditcrunchies: the problem you got here is analysts will be coming out of the woodwork downgrading BATS forcing their share price lower and lower until they switch to a buy recommendation. This is why I was going beserk about the directors of BATS they need to come clean on revenues to gain investor confidence because if they don't analysts will cane this down to £15 before they start saying oversold and buying. Every analyst is going for BATS at the moment because the management of BATS just allow it, the way they talk about BATS is they'll be lucky to still be in business in 10 years time
essentialinvestor: M, it's not just big tobacco anymore. There are hundreds of these companies selling liquids and vape products. And where as pre internet tobacco would have retained a stranglehold through distribution, online selling has transformed this area as well. If you look at the BATS price, it was falling long before the menthol issue. Having fallen by such a %, you might expect some type of counter trend rally here?. Not happening atm.
wunderbar: I for one am bewildered at the continual hammering of share price - now c.2500p. Naturally I'm a tad concerned having made multitple purchases between 2550-3600p. I genuinely thought following recent trading update [forward guidance met] this would stop the rot - alas NO! I personally don't blame management for this collapse - who could've predicted FDA's proposal to ban menthol cigarettes a mere year or so after acquiring Reynolds American - at best it's simply bad timing [but I might argue they paid too much - as is always the case with acquisitions it seems]. Right now there's nothing more for BATS to say, the ball is now in FDA's court to provide the scientific evidence to backup their proposed menthol ban. I somehow suspect if and when we get down to the nitty gritty BATS will fight this decision all the way - possibly resulting in many years of litigation all the while still reaping in huge profits from menthol whilst forking out tens of millions in legal fees which in the grand scheme of things is small change. Most shareholders likely hope the market has now fully priced in a menthol ban and associated drop in profits [and writedowns]. Let's be realistic, even if ban becomes law [I just can't see it] majority of menthol smokers won't stop smoking but merely switch to something else which might happen to be a brand of BATS anyway. For me BATS is a 3-5 year hold - given that I believe this menthol fiasco has been overblown I'd be very disappointed if shareprice doesn't recover to c3000-3500p during 2019.
philanderer: Investors Chronicle: 'Tobacco shares hardest hit in 2018' IC View Investors that have been disappointed by the share price move in tobacco companies this year will be more pleased with their income. Both BATS and Imperial Brands feature in our Income Majors series. In its most recent update, BATS reiterated its commitment to a dividend payout ratio of at least 65 per cent. At 2,768p, the shares are trading at a discount to their five-year historical valuation to the sector, while offering a potential dividend yield of near 8 per cent.

this_time_its_different: Though Brexit being smooth, Fed stopping rate hikes and no more trade w-a-r will calm the markets and would lead to a rise in BATS share price regardless. The key test will be getting brexit through the UK parliament and the next FOMC meeting. IF both are successful, I see all stocks rallying....this includes BATS.
creditcrunchies: Bats share price this year is the largest drop in % terms in the past 20 years even worse than the drop in the financial crisis. Apparently.
andrewbaker: Yes, it's crazy; but then I've been saying the world has gone crazy for years now. BATS is dropping because of so many reasons, some listed in posts above, but none of them are about the viability of the business and its profits and ability to pay covered dividends with capital growth in the share price too (when a realistic value returns to the share price, of course). I've broken my rule(s) about buying here (percentage of one holding, falling knife, etc ...), and bought more every time the price dropped again; and I've just bought more. I don't smoke, don't like smoking, and think those who do need help to stop; but I'm not about to go on a pilgrimage, soap box or other moralistic campaign: if people want to sell BATS at the current price, and want to sell BATS to me at the current price, yes please: I'm here. Sometimes a crazy world can be rewarding.
