Trading Statement by Hardboy

  Thu, 14 Dec 2017 17:27:00 GMT
I actually thought the pre close trading statement was quite positive. Obviously Mr Market thought differently.

Re: Today's Rise by philanderer

Thursday's FT....

British American Tobacco climbed 3.7 per cent to £50.28 after Japanese media reported that the government would raise tax rates gradually on tobacco used in heat-not-burn pipes.

That was yesterday's news, so it may explain yesterday's rise, but I'd be surprised if that was the reason for the acceleration today. IMPS were also up quite significantly

Re: Today's Rise by moreplease

I suspect that it might have something to do with the news:

British American Tobacco has declared a second interim dividend of 43.6 pence per ordinary share for the year ending 31 Dec.
The second interim dividend will be payable on 8 Feb to shareholders registered on either the UK main register or the South Africa branch register on 29 Dec.

RELAX by charlus

  Thu, 03 Aug 2017 18:08:00 GMT
Back to where is was in February.
This is one of my long term hold shares. Good and bad news comes and goes. I don't believe recent news is all that bad.
Holding for income rather than Capital Gain.
I think we will all be OK, if you are a buy and hold punter.

GLA,

Cheers,

"The fall in commodity & oil prices,now partially reversed caused a major short term fall in profits & asset write downs against profits.In addition we have continued historic provisions against UK bank profits for PPI etc plus other "one offs" like BP Gulf provisions. If we include these factors the PE of these companies will be very high... "

Yes, TX2, a good summary of why the historic P/E looks so anomalously (and misleadingly) high. But your attempt at the true underlying P/E - as below - is still way too high IMHO.

"If we look at FTSE100 with normalised earnings for the mining,oil & banking sectors its PE is probably in the low to mid twenties.Quite high to be frank but not quite as high as it first seems."

See the link below to an article on this very issue - from late December last year, but still perfectly valid I would say:

LINK

The key concluding paragraph (as below) is the crucial point here...

"The index also looks more attractive on a projected p/e basis, which is calculated using forecast earnings for the next 12 months. This value stands at 14, according to JP Morgan Asset Management."

Given the market is up (by some 4%) since then, and on the (reasonable?) assumption that not much has changed on forecast earnings overall, this would imply a prospective UK market P/E around 15x, perhaps (if anything) a bit lower. Which squares with my impression from other sources, as previously outlined.
