    BAT sees lift from U.S. tax change, plans to reinvest it

    British American Tobacco (BATS.L) said new U.S tax rules would boost its earnings per share by 6 percent in 2018, supporting its commitment to high-single-digit earnings growth and greater investment in vaping devices. Jefferies analysts estimated the 6 percent benefit equates to around 400 million pounds ($541 million), or about 2 percent of sales, and suggested the investment could help BAT compete against Philip Morris International (PM.N) in the growing market for cigarette alternatives seen as less dangerous than smoking. "A key factor weighing on the multiple relative to Philip Morris has been a feeling that they are trailing in reduced risk," the analysts said, noting that 2018 will be a "huge year" in shaping the competitive environment for so-called reduced risk products.
