    Can someone smarter than me give me a no BS assessment on what's going on here? I'm new, but bullish on Imperial because of the nature of their product and also their presence in Europe. Dividend seems safe.

    That said, I suppose investors read today's news and interpreted that this means that Imperial is moribund and dying. Obviously we would have liked to see better numbers but is this actually a cause for alarm?

    Imperial was my largest holding in 2020, due to health I ended up riding the market to the bottom, never depend on just your brain it can fail in an instant, my wife now could pickup for me, we regularly review my
    plans and strategy. I was mainly an income investor and that saved me, after going offline in January my problem was diagnosed in April and fortunately my abilities returned with treatment. My account was in a sad state but while I was down dramatically my dividends/distributions had been accumulating and I had some wiggle room to trade and by this January had rebuilt to where I was on that terrible January 7th.
    Income was my backup plan I was oh so smart I was getting out of the market just needed a few more minutes, what fun I would have buying during the coming crash. I am thankful every minute of every day that while God didn’t allow me to make extra millions he let me recover both health and financial stability.
    Imperial is no longer my largest position EPD is but Imperial is a solid fourth holding, providing steady income to live a nice life and continue to grow our income. I recommend IMBBY as a steady income stock never going to triple in value, just send cash.
    Bottom line own some solid profitable income producers like Imperial and have someone ready to take over your plan.
    My Best to Everyone

    Fiscal year is over. Whispers they beat their revenue numbers in key markets. Hope they raise dividends. Forward guidance is key. Defense play in a inflationary world.

    Baby Blu steps... 'get unlit'

    @@@A refreshed consumer proposition for Imperial Brands' vapour brand blu is being trialled in the US city of Charlotte, North Carolina. Supporting the geographically focused pilot is a new and impactful 'Get Unlit' promotional campaign which resonated strongly with target consumers in pre-launch testing. Enhanced blu product packaging has been introduced in more than 220 retail outlets in the Charlotte area, and a full in-store and digital consumer engagement programme will be rolled out by Imperial's US business ITG Brands from October. Kim Reed, President and CEO, USA Region, said: "blu has good brand equity and engagement for us to build on, and we look forward to understanding the learnings from this targeted trial. "Valuable consumer insights from the initiative will inform our plans for a national roll-out that we believe can fulfil the potential of the blu brand in the US."

    Imperial Tobacco reduces prices on key lines in value move
    6 September 2021

    Imperial Tobacco has announced a price reduction on some of its brands to help retailers cater for the growing number of value-focused tobacco shoppers.

    Effective immediately, the MRRP of both Embassy Signature and Richmond will drop to £9.25, and Riverstone Roll Your Own Tobacco will fall to just £11.95 and £19.60 respectively for its 30g and 50g formats, joining recently launched JPS Players Easy Rolling Tobacco in this new price tier.

    Trade marketing manager UK at Imperial Tobacco Tom Gully said: “Following a shift in the market with a rising number of smokers moving to more affordable price points, we have reduced the MRRP on several of our key brands to support retailers and their sales. Demand for value tobacco continues to play a major role in shopper purchasing decisions. By adapting the pricing on these leading brands, we can help retailers ensure they continue to offer customers great quality brands at great value price points.”

    There is a reason BLU has less than 5% market share in the US after being first to market. The company let the brand die. No brand loyalty and it’s been proven out. If they are serious they would rebrand to something else

    blu will be approved....

    If they roll out the technology that was presented to the FDA and Congress.

    https://www.regulations.gov/document/FDA-2015-D-2496-0051

    This technology addresses the dual mandate of reducing underage access to E-Cigarette products without infringing or limiIng access by legal age tobacco consumers.

    This is a critical factor that demonstrates that blu products embedded with this technology is appropriate for the protection of public health.

    Former FDA Commissioner Gottlieb has stated repeatedly the importance of preventing youth initiation of e-cig products.

    “The youth use will be a critical countervailing factor in weighing against application approval. It’s incumbent on the e-cig makers to prevent youth initiation on their devices if they want to succeed through the regulatory process that’s prescribed by the Tobacco Control Act.”

    This stock is dirt cheap with an amazing dividend. Management has put in place an outstanding 5 year plan to regain market share in key areas for their main combustible business while investing a little into NGP. This stock should have FW PE of 14 in my opinion and it currently has 10. I have fair value around 30$ per share. I think management decision to not go into share buy backs yet and focus on reducing net debt/EBITDA to 2-2.5 is good for the long run. Give 2 years time and this company will have reduced debt, begun share buy back, reversed the trend of losing market share and even gained some, payed a safe and outstanding dividend, and had some top line growth. This is a buy all day.

    There's something about a pure combustible play in 2021 that gets me tingly in my private area. Obviously wise to make inroads into NGPs, which they are, but I love their focus back on combustibles while they patiently rethink and relaunch that strategy.

    Really can't stand the Philip Morris smoke-free future nonsense. Hard to watch that one go up while we patiently receive our dividends, but still, I believe a lot of that is hype. PM's earnings look good but I don't honestly expect the world to switch to IQOS. Just don't see it. Investors love "innovation", though. Love a good story.

    I much prefer sticking with what's realistic, which is gonna be combustibles for a good few decades. Sure growth will stall and decline, but the NGP product line can mute that without needing to overhaul the business. Ain't broke don't fix it.

    Am I confused or is 0.28 cents a share between 5 and 6% annual dividend payout? Thought it was 9%

    ITG took a unexpected $1.40 per carton cig price increase on full price brands effective September
    6. Companies being proactive to add additional revenues before fiscal year ends 30 Sept. IMHO
