    Respond back with what you think the dividend will be raised to per quarter. I think it will be raised to $.90

    There are many investors in this company who count on MO for their dividend as a source of income. That being said, I hope that there will not eventually be a merger with PM, because after the last attempt MO shareholders were about to take a hit on their shares. Unfortunately, I think at some point merger talks will begin again, once things begin to settle with the Juul investment. Good Luck Board!

    MO stock price blowing whichever way the DOW blows. Love that constant dividend.

    Unless you hear it from MO or PM, then a merger isn’t happening.

    Negative money flow and the same repetitive pattern has returned.

    Big MO has made us long timers wealthy. We are at the point where the sp doesn’t matter. We are living off the dividends without a care in the world. I recommend you of younger years hear my words. Buy high yield companies with solid revenue streams and REINVEST those dividends while you are still working. You will wake up one day and be amazed how wealthy you have become

    Management actually had a blow out quarter. The earnings beat at $5.6B, but that is AFTER using $1.825B to retire debt ($1.5B) and share repurchases ($325M).

    If management had flipped the debt and didn’t by back the earning would have been ~$1/share higher (~$7.4B in total).

    That management could deliver stronger than expected revenues And earnings, and at the same time retire about 5% of the outstanding debt and also manage to repurchase 6.6M shares are very positive signs.

    If we can get above $48.94 this week, Mo will race to $50. I still say you can by right here and do very well over the next 6-12 months.

    Not only beats and raised guidance, but average buyback price during the quarter was $49+ and they retired over $1B of debt.

    Comparison of AT&T and MO.......

    MO is def no T.

    T = 3x debt coverage MO= 9x. T good coverage. MO great coverage.
    T loses $8k for every employee. MO makes $600k per employee.

    It's looking like they should have no problem announcing a raise in the dividend to at least $3.60 next month.

    I don’t get why this stock is flat. Great Earnings report. Prospects of Dividend increase. Game-players?

    @Scott and anyone else confused on the news today. Per earnings call transcript, IQOS will “stay in” the current four state expansion markets including the heavily populated northern Virginia area (think DC) without expanding beyond that for now. FDA approval of IQOS as a RRP in the US will also have some weight in the case according to the transcripts. This will be tied up in court(s) for a while. I wouldn’t sell yet, long MO!!

    I?m OK with MO staying here, because this stock is at least my savings account taking DRIP.#$%$ as hell that VIAC isn?t going anywhere though, because like MO, it actually makes money. Was hoping to be able to sell that and roll some more into here and others (but mostly here).
