    How often is dividend payment?

    @@@ Kevin ....
    Very well explained, and good arguments, as well as against an investment in tobacco. I am invested in IMB & MO myself. Put simply, when I invest my money in tobacco stocks, I am buying future income. Because dividends are all about nothing else. Of course, you also have to survive the bumpy stretches and you can't throw in the towel when things aren't going well. And at Imperial we've had some of these cliffs over the past few months and years. But you are right because the new CEO now seems to be taking the helm in the right direction and bringing the company back to healthy financial status.
    It always depends on WHEN you joined IMB. In March / April 2020 the shares were on sale at a dividend yield of 14% !!

    And Imperial or any of the other tobacco companies are definitely not going to go bankrupt. It is difficult for companies to adjust to the innovations and changes in the law, but they have managed it every time so far and have come out of every crisis stronger than before.
    People will probably still smoke forever. Regardless of the way, and since the tobacco industry has a certain power to set prices, they will continue to be able to increase the prices of their products every year to compensate ...

    Er, 9% divi, 5.8 P/e. So unsexy and yet so very good.

    Picked up a few shares on this. Waiting to see if we see 20 or 21 again for a big buy.

    I am still sitting out of the game for the moment but hope to match my next month’s distributions with a great entry price for IMBBY still have my core holdings, but have not been surprised by the volatility.
    I still fully believe this will be a profitable year, Delta Covid is the wild card of the moment hitting Britain a little hard.

    I chose IMB as a better dividend return which has been true, it has been more volatile and the rides down can be difficult, lots of people sell before EX day and more after EX day if you can handle that it is a great cash income stream. I treat it like an annuity.
    Best of Luck

    PS you could do both buy the one that’s down at the time.

    Wondering if I should add to position today or buy some BTI instead. My MO is down, but not low enough to buy.

    My only stock that didn’t go down today. With ex day coming we will dip, I am waiting to rebuy some more but truthfully hope it beats the dip by NYSE time. I can’t complain in the last 30 days today was just my second negative day. Hope everyone here is doing well and thinking about what to do with the July cash from Imbby.
    I enjoy buying stock, so most times that is what I do after keeping about a third for living expenses.
    Week before last I treated myself for once, I on impulse ordered a new LG 83 inch OLED TV.
    Just went to buy an iPhone cover, saw a little tag on a smaller TV, I had no idea such a thing was coming out.
    This is going to be a good year for Imperial.

    The report was as previously previewed by Imperial a solid start under the new leadership.
    I think the return of International travel is where they expect actual growth versus price increases and cost reductions both very much appreciated. The use of our dividend cut to combine with the Cigar sale to truly cut debt was the very best news in the report and they clearly state this is what they will continue to do, that is huge, not quite enough to make me feel good about my reduced payments. It does assure me that I will benefit from less volatility and steady share value appreciation. I have found Imperial to be very straight forward about these forward looking statements, I thank the management for their honesty.

    Hi Everyone I messed up yesterday woke up and did something I never do trade before breakfast and sold some shares and even failed to put high price first, low blood sugar panic on dip. Have made a little lemonade out of it. Bought some back paid 20 cents more and used some to catch PSXP at $35.02 and grabbed a nice chunk, $3.50 dividend and even as oil crashed up to $36.22 today. Imbby is still my largest investment in dollars but second in shares held now. I just started back on insulin and simply won’t turn my iPad on before breakfast again. One thing for sure, glad I still own a lot of Imbby.
    I hope all of you are well.
    My Best to All

    Buggs EX Day is 5/27/21 and Pay Day is 6/30/21, it takes about 8 days to post in my USA Schwab account.
    Hope the weak dollar trend continues, huge difference to be at $1.42 versus $1.26 for Americans.

    Sir Royston keep it going today I bought some back on yesterday’s dip, not back to my peak but lots of pipelines cash coming in from distributions so who knows, oil price dip may make me add more SUN
    or EPD who knows. I really won by using a few % of my IMBBY to book some winners, but will grow my IMBBY back as I can, I really do expect a good report will jump it up a couple of dollars.
    Regards

    I've stuck to MO, PM from the split, and BTI for the last few decades. However, the price and dividend rate is insane right now so I'm opening up my position in imperial brands. They have the cash flow to cover and I'm fine with their focus on debt repayment and buybacks versus even more dividend hikes.

    My dividend will increase by over 9% due to dollar depreciation versus the pound.
    The pound is continuing to rise if stock price stays even in pounds will still be up in dollars.
    This was one reason I put so much in British stocks.
    Investors in USA should pay attention to Imbby, over 40 billion dollar companies with huge profits.
    for just over $21.00 a share don’t grow on trees. I know I hate smoking too, but my family needs
    cash flow. My good deed stock is PFE.
    Happy New Year
