Part of my portfolio is $MO-0.3% stock.

Overall, I think tobacco company stocks are a great investment for several reasons. Tobacco companies are usually financially stable and often pay a high dividend. Further, I think tobacco companies will continue to thrive as people will continue to smoke. The question is whether, for example, normal cigarettes will be replaced by a company that produces electric cigarettes.

As I wrote, I own $MO-0.3% stock, but I plan to add $BTI-0.4% to my portfolio.

How do you feel about these two companies and does it make sense for you to invest in this sector?


I personally have a bit of a portfolio in BTI and if I wanted to be sure despite the electronics you have $PM. I'm planning on them too but so far I've always been tempted by other better for me stocks in other sectors. 🙂🤷‍♂️

Cool, I didn't even know PM made electronic cigarettes.

However, IQOS is an electronic cigarette that heats tobacco :) besides, PM is supposed to expand production... Like I was thinking about them well enough so far it's holding up well at a level where that purchase for the future isn't too bad, but of course with a caution no. :)

It doesn't make sense to me to only be exposed to the US market, so $BTI-0.4% seems like the much better choice of the two. Not to mention the valuation side, in which BTI clearly wins as well. The company is undervalued.

I agree, I also feel it is undervalued.
