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.
slogsweep: There seems a mismatch here between bank up grades and plumeting share price - are US banks pumping so they can dump their stock at a better price? Defensives seem to be under the cosh in this correction. My aim shares seem to be holding up the best.

philanderer: British American Tobacco backed to ride US storm The announcement of a potential crackdown on the level of nicotine in cigarettes by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may have caused a slump in tobacco stocks last week, but British American Tobacco (BATS) is still in a strong position, according to Berenberg. Earnings per share jumped 21% in the first half of the year, well ahead of expectations. Sales were also up, but analyst Jonathan Leinster said the group was still lagging rival Phillip Morris in the growth and size of its business focused on next-generation products, such as e-cigarettes. Leinster reiterated his ‘buy’ recommendation, arguing the FDA’s move need not make a difference to the outlook. ‘Many other countries have already employed maximum tar and nicotine levels without causing a significant disruption in their cigarette markets,’ he said. British American Tobacco’s share price edged higher to £48.31 yesterday, having regained some ground from its low of 4713p on Friday. HTTP://
philanderer: SBG Securities upgraded British American Tobacco (NYSE: BTI) from Hold to Buy. Analyst Rey Wium believes the recent share price correction has improved the risk/reward proposition. He comments further that "The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a new comprehensive plan to reduce tobacco use. Part of the intended pathway is to reduce nicotine content in cigarettes while encouraging innovation behind new products that can reduce risk. This announcement has increased investor uncertainty and concern regarding the longer-term growth of the tobacco industry, though we believe that the FDA’s approach will be dictated by scientific evidence. We are also of the view that the tobacco industry will be able to adapt, as has been the case in recent decades." HTTPS://
grahamburn: The fall today is more likely to be connected with the anticipated dilution resulting from the increase in the number of shares which will happen tomorrow (as per today's RNS). Or perhaps is just another day of volatility which has been apparent in the share price in the immediate past.
philanderer: Market report British American Tobacco and Imperial Brands slumped on a stumbling wider market as separate strategies by the British and Indian governments to stub out smoking weighed on the cigarette makers. Exposed to the Indian tobacco market through its stake in conglomerate ITC, investors dumped BAT as the government increased levies on tobacco products by as much as 10pc. The company’s heavy weighting on the FTSE 100 dragged down the index, its shares shedding 68p at £52.37. “ITC accounts for 12.5pc of BAT’s market capitalisation, implying a reduction of around 1.5pc for BAT’s share price”, argued RBC Capital Markets analyst Mirco Badocco.

karateboy: Share price is moving up nicely. Is it possible that somebody chasing BATS.
andrewbaker: Interesting article from the SeekingAlpha website: 'British American Tobacco said demand for its "glo" device overwhelmed supply in its Japan test marketing as global cigarette giants shift focus to the "heat but not burn" category amid declining smoking population. Philip Morris (NYSE:PM) announced earlier this month that it had more than doubled the supply of its IQOS tobacco device but it was still not enough to cover demand. BTI +1.1% premarket.' And as I posted a short while ago £50, once broken up through, will become a solid support level going forward: it's yet to be tested, and maybe even £51 will hold. This is a good share to buy and hold: the dividend gives better returns than a deposit account, and as long as one doesn't commit capital that will be needed in the short to medium term, your deposit increases too, courtesy of capital growth in the share price. Buy or buy more, especially if £50 does get tested for any reason.
