Reynolds American, Inc. is a corporation that is operating as a model of what economists call a cartel. The Government makes more money on the sale of a pack of cigarettes than the tobacco company does and they both make a lot of money in this business. Any threat by competitors to sell a similar product at a cheaper price than the existing big four tobacco companies can sell their product for do to the massive liabilities saddling them due to the Tobacco settlement shake down by the government will see the government move to cease such activities to protect their investment. States have not passed minimum allowable price per pack of cigarettes sold to protect the consumer from saving thousands on the purchases of their tobacco products, the very concept of this is absurd. States passed these laws to put any potential competitive threat to the big four tobacco companies out of business and they succeeded in their efforts and they did so for the sake of the obscene amounts of revenue raised by sin taxes and long term IOUs payable to them from the big four over 20 years time which would be hard to collect if competition built a better mousetrap, or a cheaper one and put the big four out of business. So a business that has a 25-30% market share of a lucrative business and a willing accomplice in the government to create impassable barriers of entry to block all new competition equals a handsome dividend income with little real downside risk over the long term and a small but real potential for moderate capital growth with certain dividend payouts increasing at a steady clip over the same period seems to me to be a sound place to invest your money in for the long term minded strategy.

RAI is well positioned to profit from electronic cigarettes in the near term and growth opportunities in legal marijuana as states expand legal usage.

Got this at 32.75 last week; already beating S&P by 6%. Great dividend. Idiots will continue to smoke, probably more, when the market drops!!

Well over the past couple years, other than Marlboro, all I see people smoking are American Spirit cigarettes. AS is a subsidiary of RAI. If nothing else, if the market goes down people will still smoke these organic (healthy) smokes.

Whats a good cigarette without accelerants anyways.

Dividend and earnings, smoking is going any where. The company doesnt have to change or retool anything or waste money on r&d. Asset turn over like a mad flowing river. A no brainer this one. Cheers to you smokers make me rich . I deserve some pay while you throw your dam cigarette butts all over every where hahahahahahaha.

Dividend play. A Good ROIC gives them a good chance to maintain this dividend as earnings slow. They are a little expensive but the next few years will be about dividends. If interest rates rise beyond this dividend level then all bets are off. Stocks with higher dividends are safer in that regard.

Ah-HA!
So I decided to check this out today and when I went to dividendinvestor.com to check the dividend historyI saw the previous quarterly payment of $0.90 and the latest payment in red for $0.49 I thought "HUH?"
I searched the headlines. I looked at Morningstar.com.
Finally I found what I was looking for at Yahoo!Finance after I clicked on "Historical Prices" - "dividends only."
Nov 16 RAI had a 2:1 stock split.
Now because it had a 2:1 stock split the dividend (per share) cut causes the folks at dividendinvestor.com to show a big fat ZERO for "consecutive years of dividend increases?
They better fix that before everybody thinks they're a bunch of idiots.
This one's going up. That's a solidly backed dividend.

Addictive product? Juicy dividend? Discount brands that are still profitable? What's not to like?
