    Kenneth Dart, billionaire heir to an American foam cups fortune, has become one of the largest shareholders in the London-listed British American Tobacco and Imperial Brands and has continued to increase his stakes in recent months.

    Comically oversold. Just park your cash here and earn almost 9% worry free.

    Liquidation by two of the largest institutional holders of this stock has resulted in considerable downward pressure on the stock price. Based on the most recent filings, both have mostly eliminated their entire position. Combined holdings for both owners exceeded $2 billion in June - 2021 and is now only a relatively small position. Patience!

    Hey so this first time I jumped into BTI I was told no foreign tax. But today got my dividend and there was a decent sized dividend fee??? Is this normal?

    DCF
    I calculate BTI to be around 10,5% return now based on DCF over 10 years not accounting for the debt. Currently, not worth my risk margin accounting for rising rates and the impact it has with their high debt. Will come back around ~25 when its worth the risk IMO, not saying it will drop that far.

    8.4% yield. M* 5 star rated with a fair value of 56. Obviously huge upside and trading for less than book value. The weakness in the stock is due to unfavorable (somewhat) comparisons with Philip Morris. The concern stems from the Reynolds American acquisition and fears of regulation of menthol cigarettes (Newport brand); however, those concerns have yet to be more real than imagined and BTI, like all the tobacco manufacturers, has real pricing power and a product that sells regardless of what is going on with the economy. Given a potential correction this is where you want to be.

    Is BTI paying a special dividend in December?

    I still say 35 will be a top for some time. I'll give it room to 35.20 at the most. But you can sell sellers move in anytime it gets around 35. Why, because they know these 4000 year low rates are over!

    Not sure what people are missing here. The past year the stock price dropped approx. 15%! The dividend pays about 8%. The 8% doesn't make up the share price drop. And if you go back 5 yrs, the stock price has been going down and down. All I see on the board is talk about the dividend. No one seems to talk about how much money they are losing just to have that 8% dividend! How can a stock that loses more in value per year than the dividend be a good investment. Rational replys welcome.

    @Jim at 32 it should have a nice 10 percent yield. Plus they paying down debt and have good cash flows so dividend is secure. Likely that they will announce a share buyback program and being a consumer defensive stock it should provide relative safety in a market downturn.

    It’s time to buy U.K. stocks. That is the latest view from JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts on U.K. stocks, as the bank ended a longstanding cautious view on the region, upgrading it to overweight. A team led by Mislav Matejka, head of global equity strategy, explained why investors should be ready to take advantage of the fact the FTSE 100 UKX, -0.36% has lagged behind its global peers for six years.

    U.K. equities have trailed a cumulative 50% against the U.S. and 24% versus the eurozone since the Brexit referendum in 2016, opening up a record discount both on price to earnings and a price to book basis, said Matejka and the team. That is even after stripping out heavily weighted banks and energy sectors.

    BTI offers a healthy dividend! ;)

    I invest in this one for the income. Don’t care what the stock price does, as long as the dividend is safe. If the yield increases significantly (price down/divvy up) I will be buying more.

    Is BTI paying a special dividend before the end of the year?
