philanderer: MS note: Analysts at Morgan Stanley downgraded industry giant British American Tobacco to 'underweight' on Monday, noting that, in its view, the threat of a "maximum nicotine policy" in the US had not been reflected in the group's share price. Morgan Stanley said making the 'buy' case for British American was "easy", stating the firm represented a "structural growth story" suffering a temporary perception setback and labelled the group as "cheap", "unloved" and offering "a great long-term entry point." However, MS believes the "high impact on future profits" stemming from a potential regulation change Stateside was not "fully understood or appropriately reflected" in BAT's share price. "In our scenario analysis we take a conservative stance on new regulation, assuming regulation to reduce nicotine to non-addictive levels takes until 2035 to come into force. However, even in this scenario we estimate that BAT's US profits could be as much as 50% lower and ~13% of future value at risk to the ma MS also highlighted that prior to acquiring Reynolds, BAT delivered a roughly 20% return on invested capital, generating £3.5bn of free cash flow, but post-acquisition, while the analysts estimate that ROIC had fallen to 7% and leverage had risen to around 4x in 2018, the business was set to generate £7bn of free cash. "This company has consistently delivered 3-5% top-line growth, 5-8% profit growth and 8-12% EPS growth, putting it right in the top tier of the global Staples group, but the stock is on just 8.5x 2020e P/E with an ~11% FCF yield and an ~8% dividend yield." In summary, MS felt the combined risks from regulatory change, disruption/investment requirements, changing consumer behaviour and high leverage gave it more than enough cause to turn "incrementally more bearish".

lukmanpatel: Another troll by the username lsehotdealz haha, share price is stagnant and there’s talks of fundraise at 10p on that board lol desperation has lead to going round posting on different board to prevent share price from dropping, usually ud stay quiet and average down and accumulate if you see huge potential lmaoo he’s spamming all the boards
philanderer: JP Morgan note Based on bottom-up analysis, we still expect US Profit Nicotine profit pool to grow 4% (CAGR18-25) driven by resilient cigarettes profit pool (2% with volume -5%, unchanged). As a result, our MT profit forecast for the tobacco names are unchanged though we raise by c2% FY19 due to FX. We continue to expect companies to miss their MT NGP targets, but see resilient global nicotine profit growth (JPMe +5%) to lead to a re-rating. We see recent share price pressure as overdone and expect the group to rerate in the wake of upcoming catalysts (BATS to reiterate FY target, PMI to see iQOS uptick in EU). We prefer BATS. US profit resilient despite recent negative news. While we now expect a weak H119E, we just slightly reduce our 19E cigarettes volume growth (-4.8% vs -4.4% earlier), but we see revenues +1% due to stronger pricing. We foresee: US cigarettes profit pool resilient with 2% profit growth CAGR18-25. If adult smokers switching rate accelerates (suggested by Altria) this would equate to a 100bps downside risk on cigarettes volume, less than feared by the market.  US NGP dynamics not as disruptive as market believes. Following the FDA activity in Nov-2018, vapor growth decelerated. We forecast 20% volume growth in 2019E (vs +38% in 2018) as the lower underage take-up is offset by adult vapers inflows. US Nielsen tracker confirms BATS share gains while IMB vapor growth turned negative. While iQOS PMTA is positive, we have conservative estimates on heated tobacco in the US given the unattractive economics and the different taste profile of US smokers.
andrewbaker: Further to yesterday's comment: the jump today shows that there are willing buyers for when the 'ethical' sellers offload; and furthermore, when these sellers have exhausted themselves, watch BATS price move higher by a good margin. At the moment the shares may be bought cheaply because of sellers not so concerned about investment as about not holding the stock, and that situation will not last much longer, IMHO. So ... buy or buy more now whilst the price is still so cheap: you do not have much longer to use this open window, that is soon due to close.
micha14: 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.
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
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
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.
