    Yep. This imbby looks cheap. Guess you can thank the righteous ESG investors for driving the stock down the past few years. Company has been paying down debt aggressively to the tune of say $5-6 billion and now would seem to be in a heck of a position to invest in growth initiatives

    Are the imperial brands sharks aware of this little company XLY.TO? IMB has a 20% state in it.

    The stagflation economy we are in will hurt everything, I do think Imperial will continue to generate cash flow and pay dividend. Unfortunately I think the declining health of the World economy will cause everything to decline. The magic question is how much, it is better to hold high asset income stocks in a period like this and unfortunately it is a multi year event with a long tail of hurt. I am holding my current level and would normally add at this point but I will wait for once to see end of year report.
    If you are in what I call Perception stocks I would shift those funds to income stocks, especially of must have to live products and services. In this stage inflation helps profit reports as it continues up it reduces margins and makes net profit harder to achieve. Avoid any kind of investments in debt, especially sovereign or government backed. Companies like Imperial will survive of course with addictive products but we may see tighter margins and lower net. If a stock you own is not currently profitable, run to the nearest exit.
    I was a young business man in the seventies and was smart and able to make money when many did not, now I am just a retired not so smart old man, but stagflation is very real and very dangerous.

    Imbby holding reasonably well thankfully, after the dividend payment I waited sold some at $21.00 mainly
    to buy another $21.00 stock but also lowered my break even to just over $20.00 which should be safe and
    give me almost 10% return depending on Pound vs Dollar in 2022.
    I sincerely hope it follows past trends to rise to highest level in January. At this level I plan to hold long term.
    Best Luck

    Good: Earnings beat slightly and slight dividend raise. Bad: 2022 doesn’t look too promising as they
    ramp up operating costs Think they can revamp Blu and going more woke.—

    guys, do you think tobacco companies can get into the cannabis sector or is it a realistic option they would use eventually?

    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

    Talk about total manipulation. Today’s trading is case in point

    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.

    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.
  • J
    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

    Got my dividend last night, took some cash for regular account but have a nice chunk to invest almost bought more PSXP but with news coming on DAPL in the morning just punted.
    The big jump up came partially from reinvestment in IMBBY, I bought more when it was down and have a lot so I will be looking to put this in a good place before EX days at end of April.
    I have gotten back over 20% of my IMBBY basis in dividends counting my extra dividends from stocks bought with IMBBY money in just 1 and a half years. Not a hummer but my last “Hummer” ended with me desperately punching sell all.
    I like plodding upward.
    I recommend IMBBY for cash flow.
  • G
    I have my IMBBY shares with Fidelity. I have my entire account set to dividend reinvestment in more shares. For some reason IMBBY dividends go to cash. Is this because the stock is an ADR therefore you can reinvest the dividends automatically?

    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.”

    I’m out
    After nearly 3 years holding this stock I sold my stake this morning. Big loss even with the accumulated divvies. I do realise I should not have just looked at the cheap valuation and outstanding dividend record when I bought it. I should have paid more attention to the growth prospect of the company.
    However IMHO the FDA killed this company last year with its heavy handed approach of the wacky-vapes related deaths that had nothing to do with big tobacco. Companies -and their shareholders- with reputable products such as Imperial paid an unfair and sustancial price. I don’t think it will ever recover with the current anti-tobacco sentiment from regulators reflected in the little interest from institutional investors. The best it can happen to IB’s shareholders is for IB to be swallowed by a bigger fish, maybe PMI or BAT. Who knows. I’m no expert.
    Best of luck to all longs here.

    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.
  • S
    Is there any recent news why IB is dropping? Is it tied to BT earnings call today?
    I'm thinking about buying some more for the yield. Thanks

    One interesting aspect I never see mentioned in articles about Imperial is that the 1/3 dividend cut
    was not as tough for Americans. The reason is the average pound to dollar conversion is running about
    10% higher this year. This means I am receiving 75% of the money I received last year.
    How many 42 billion dollar companies with a near 5% net profit can you get a share of for just over $20.00.
    I like the new CEO, he seems to be working to solidify returns for his shareholders.
    Imperial does not get the respect it deserves, due to a health problem I was unable to function prior and after the crash, so my deep backup plan was my last line of defense. My heavy investment in high dividend stocks helped us live without a hitch, the income came even as I was helpless in the hospital. As I regained my
    mental function the cash flow helped me rebuild my finances and continue to grow our income.
    Also my wife now gets a regular review of what I am doing and knows how to operate the Schwab
    account. Hope this helps someone with their planning.
    Best to All
