Defensive, staple stocks generally strike me as overpriced. BTI serves nice markets, but they're the most overpriced of the big names. As a valuation call, this one likely will be wrong, until it isn't. That's really not a good move in CAPS, where risk is everything and immediate movement is the prize, but I can't help myself sometimes.
