    P/E ratio of this company is extremely low even compared to other tobacco companies. Why is this stock getting no love? I'm thinking of getting in

    the recent purchase of shares by Luc Jobin, Independent Non-Executive Director of the company, who spent UK£1.2m on stock at an average price of UK£25.98 ($36.17). That purchase boosted their holding by 99%, quietly confident deeply-felt optimism.

    Looks like another market overreaction to earnings, similar to ULVR & GSK

    / Only negative - drop in cigarette sales, however increased price & new product sales have slightly offset
    / Great payout ratio ~65% of diluted EPS, div seems secure for next few years as minimum. Cannot complain with c8% div PA & div increase for 2021

    Will this company enter the MJ industry once it’s legalized in United States? How will tobacco compete against canopy growth? Big tobacco already has the distribution and scale. Tobacco is waiting without needing to take the risks that canopy and other tobacco companies are taking.

    Beat on earnings and revenue. Div increase and this thing is down. What a farce

    The interest rate s very low so I put cash on bti, pm, mo and bag me close to 11 k quarterly. Investor here on the original mo since 1998 and it helped me breathed the air of financial independence.

    The traditional cig. products is what supports the dividend and the company said it was slowing down likely at least 3 percent next year. Not good for long term investors interested in the divi.

    This is why price is tanking, from earnings call:

    "However, the company said the Covid-19 pandemic had hit performance, with an estimated 2.5% headwind to revenue in 2020. The World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have warned that smoking increases the risk when it comes to fighting off Covid-1"

    BTI is a bond proxy. A cash cow that just keeps on giving with a great dividend that is well protected.

    I just take my cash and redeploy .

    What’s this company’s dividend policy? What’s so good about it and why should I invest? (I’m researching further but I value the opinions on these boards)

    This is one of the best businesses in the world. It is very undervalued. Worth 60 a share minimum

    I don’t care what people say. Smoking isn’t going away. People smoke until they die. Name me another product with such brand loyalty
