  • Can Altria Survive Shrinking Tobacco Demand? [View article]
    Simply Safe Dividends - thanks for a great article on MO. I am long MO, PM and RAI. Any future articles on tobacco will be appreciated. To sadie11, I was happy to read your comment on MO and MJ in CO. I hope you will keep us informed as you hear more about MO and MJ. Many thanks.

  • The Dow Jones Corrects And, Right On Cue, Altria Assuages Investor Fears [View article]
    Nicholas - thanks for your reply. I will never sell MO, or PM or RAI for that matter.
    Heck, that is all there is in this country re tobacco, except Imperial Co. Too small to be concerned with. Was there any bad news on the FDA causing problems for tobacco?? That was mentioned somewhere else. But, regardless, I will not sell my positions in these three companies. Good luck to you.

  • Altria Delivers With A 9% Dividend Hike [View article]
    SABMiller beer is split into three parts. No sense to that. MO owns a third, South African Beverage owns a third, and Miller Coors owns a third, Miller needs to be ONE company. So let us get going. We cannot purchase shares of Miller Beer as it is not listed here. True, BUD will not get approval to buy Miller, a monopoly in the making. But 3G Capital could buy all of Miller Beer.

  • Altria Outperforms; Smoking Marlboros Back On The Rise? [View article]
    Retired One - What are you talking about?? I have not heard anything negative about tobacco companies re" the FDA. Will you explain? In one breath, you praise tobacco companies, then you tell us all to sell. Tomorrow, Aug 31, RAI splits two for one share. I will have double what I have now and that will be a lot. What was the FDA's ruling? I have not heard anything about it at all. I get the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal, and nothing about the FDA in that paper. Thanks much.

  • Mondelez: Bill Ackman's' Massive Bet Officially Cheap [View article]
    The article and all the comments are interesting. My own take is that MDLZ will split into two parts. One part being the snacks business will merge with another company. At any rate, investors cannot lose. There are many possibilities. I got my shares when PM split up. I never look a gift horse in the mouth. But I am staying on top of this situation. The fact that Bill Ackman bought such a large block of shares in MDLZ portends well for investors.

  • Major turkey bacon recall from Kraft Heinz [View news story]
    I am with all of you above. Let us recall Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, the sooner the better. The world can do without these two.

    Nicholas - Thanks so much for this very good article on MO and the market in general. Yes, we surely need words of wisdom during these trying times. You hit the nail on the head. I am long MO, PM and RAI. Any future articles again on MO and articles on PM and RAI will be most welcome. Yes, Friday and last week are days that try men's souls. We have to keep a good thought.

    Yes, I also like RAI. Heck, I love RAI. With the stock split coming on Aug. 31, I will have twice as many shares, quite a lot. And, RAI will also be in legal MJ when it is legal. We tend to overlook that aspect of RAI. Plus MO and PM. Nothing to stop PM from getting into the legal MJ business in this country. And they could team up with MO. Is there any news on when SABMiller will be sold? There is talk on that from time to time. That will give MO shareholders a special dividend. We can only hope.

  • Altria's Future Is In Cannabis [View article]
    Thanks to all who commented. But I agree with whoever said that someone will go to the Supreme Court to legalize MJ. I am on The Weed Blog which gives daily updates on MJ legalization. It is free. Anyone can sign on to it. There is a lot of
    movement on MJ. If CA approves recreational MJ in the Fall, that is a big crack in the wall and will help legalize MJ on a national basis. Any thoughts??

    Albert - Another good article on MO. Keep them coming. Although with the downturn in the market this week, that could keep MO from splitting in the Spring, but let us keep a good thought on that. MO is a forever company. Long MO.

    Mr. Vincent - Thanks so much for a good article on Bill Ackman. How about articles on the other billionaires, like Nelson Peltz and Carl Icahn? I look forward to those.
