    I didn't get my dividend payment yesterday even though I bought before the ex-date... does BTI delay the payment since it is a foreign ADR?

    This may be a sell at $40 for me.

    There’s absolutely no reason to be sitting this low with such high earnings and yield at such low P/E, and yet it seems to be quite happy here for much of the past year.

    MO I can understand with their JUUL problem.

    I think BTI should focus on cannabis to expand the future growth. Really huge market is waiting for the companies like BAT.

    This stock movement cracks me up. It falls on no news and then randomly explodes 5% higher for no reason.

    Disappointing to see it wash off yesterdays gains completely. I think it will gain substantially in the long term, but Biden's apparent victory provides ammo for sellers

    Disclosure, I am a holder of LO received BTI stock when it was $60. I am not a seller since I believe the dividend is safe yet little or no stock appreciation. So take the dividend as cash and abort DRIP. Still a great strategy.

    This is a repost of one I made a year or two ago with some modifications:

    Ok, here’s the deal. In 2002 I bought 100 shares of RAI for a little over $4,000. As most of you know, it got sold to BTI. I received the BTI shares and the cash. I used the cash to buy MO. I’ve always reinvested the dividends. Even though both stocks have dropped (I’m down a lot since the sale), on that initial investment my yearly dividends are $6,000. Not bad for a $4,000 investment. Just buy and hold forever. I say this with good will to all. Please no judgements.

    Hold for dividend (safe) with very little stock appreciation in the near future. Holder from LO spinoff.

    It keeps selling off. I'm due an expiry in december @35 so I guess I'll write another @35 put for march but I might wait a while. Wasn't there talk of a buyback plan?
