British American Tobacco: This 8.5% Yielding Dividend Aristocrat Is Set To Soar And Too Cheap To Ignore


  • Today's 26% overvalued market means future returns for stocks are likely to be disappointing.
  • But it's always a market of stocks, not a stock market, and incredible high-yield aristocrat bargains are always available if you know where to look.
  • BTI is a 50% undervalued 8.5% yielding global aristocrat trading at 7.2x forward earnings, and pricing in -2.6% CAGR long-term growth. It's the most attractive valuation in 20 years.
  • Analysts actually expect its smoke-free future plans (which are going better than expected) to deliver 3% to 5% CAGR growth while management thinks buybacks can boost that to 7% to 9%.
  • Over the next five years, analysts think BTI could triple and deliver almost 13% CAGR long-term returns for decades. The last time BTI was this undervalued, it delivered 1,800% total returns over the next 15 years.

In the last decade, we've seen one of the best bull markets in history.

Naturally, such incredible returns mean valuations have gotten a bit stretched, to say the least.

JPMorgan (JPM) estimates that the S&P is now 26% historically overvalued, and likely to deliver rather disappointing returns in the coming years.

The market is expected to deliver just 1/3 the returns investors have enjoyed over the last 10 years.

Dividend Aristocrats are expected to deliver about 6.4% CAGR returns over the next five years, which is half the returns of the last decade.

But thankfully, it's always a market of stocks, not a stock market.

Just a few days ago, 91% of the S&P 500 was in a correction, and the majority of tech stocks were in a bear market.

In other words, no matter your investment goals, maximum safety yield, maximum safety and quality, growth and total returns, foreign dividend stocks, monthly dividend stocks, low volatility stocks, strong ESG stocks, etc., it doesn't matter.

Something wonderful is always on sale if you know where to look.

Today I want to explain the four reasons that British American Tobacco (NYSE:BTI) is one of the best Buffett-style fat pitches on Wall Street.

In fact, this 8.5% yielding global dividend aristocrat is set to soar, and too cheap to ignore.

That's why I've bought it 228 times so far, totaling $192,000 across all three of my retirement portfolios.

When it's raining gold, reach for a bucket, not a thimble...

Wait for a fat pitch, and then swing for the fences." - Warren Buffett

Today BTI might be just what your diversified and prudently risk-managed portfolio needs to help you achieve the rich retirement of your dreams.

Reason 1: The Best Buying Opportunity In 20 Years

BTI is once more in a correction, one that's part of the longest bear market in 35 years.

However, remember that valuations always matter, and they matter a lot.

When BTI began its current bear market it was 50% historically overvalued, as low-interest rates caused a bubble in high-yield blue-chips.


(Source: FAST Graphs, FactSet Research)

BTI went from 50% overvalued, to 50% undervalued in less than two years, and its valuation remains the most attractive in two decades.


(Source: FAST Graphs, FactSet Research)

Rule number one: most things will prove to be cyclical.

Rule number two: some of the greatest opportunities for gain and loss come when other people forget rule number one." - Howard Marks

BTI has had plenty of corrections and bear markets in the last 35 years, all blue-chips have.

But the last time BTI was this undervalued it delivered 25% CAGR total returns for the next 15 years. That's 19x your money in a high-yield aristocrat bargain hiding in plain sight.

Today analysts expect BTI to deliver very attractive long-term returns, over the decades, of nearly 13% and management says it can deliver 15.5% to 17.5% CAGR.

Be greedy when others are fearful." - Warren Buffett

However, John Templeton and Howard Marks, two of the greatest investors in history, did say that "20% of the time, this time really is different".

So let's take a look at why this time isn't likely different for BTI, and anyone buying this high-yield aristocrat today is likely to be very happy with the results in the coming years and decades.

Reason 2: The Best High-Yield Global Aristocrat You Can Buy Today

The Dividend King's overall quality scores are based on a 207 point model that includes

  • dividend safety

  • balance sheet strength

  • short and long-term bankruptcy risk

  • accounting and corporate fraud risk

  • profitability and business model

  • growth consensus estimates

  • cost of capital

  • long-term risk-management scores from MSCI, Morningstar, FactSet, S&P, Reuters/Refinitiv and JUST Capital

  • management quality

  • dividend friendly corporate culture/income dependability

  • long-term total returns (a Ben Graham sign of quality)

  • analyst consensus long-term return potential

It actually includes over 1,000 metrics if you count everything factored in by 12 rating agencies we use to assess fundamental risk.

  • credit and risk management ratings make up 38% of the DK safety and quality model

  • dividend/balance sheet/risk ratings make up 77% of the DK safety and quality model

How do we know that our safety and quality model works well?

During the two worst recessions in 75 years, our safety model predicted 87% of blue-chip dividend cuts during the ultimate baptism by fire for any dividend safety model.

BTI Fundamentals: Impeccable Safety, Quality, And Long-Term Risk Management Retirees Can Trust

What makes BTI such a wonderful company?

Let's start with income dependability. Ben Graham considered 20 years without a dividend cut a sign of quality and 20+ years of conservative dividend growth a sign of excellence.

BTI meets Graham's standard of excellence, and analysts expect that mouth-watering yield to grow steadily every year.

(Source: FactSet Research Terminal)

85% is the payout ratio safety guideline for tobacco, and BTI's policy is to pay out 65% of earnings as dividends that grow steadily over time.

That's the lowest payout ratio among blue-chip tobacco and potentially will allow BTI to buy back 7% to 8% of its shares annually once it's done deleveraging.

BTI's balance sheet is expected to achieve safe rating standards in 2022, and according to management, 2021 on an adjusted EBITDA basis.

We remain committed to our 65% dividend payout ratio and dividend growth in sterling terms, continuing to invest in the transformation of the business and building A Better Tomorrow while deleveraging the balance sheet to reach around 3x adjusted net debt to adjusted EBITDA by the year-end.

At that point, we expect increased flexibility for capital allocation." - BTI H1 results press release

In other words, BTI could potentially turn on the buy-back growth jets as early as January.

BTI is on track to cut 1.5 billion pounds worth of expenses in the next few years, and analysts expect steady growth in margins, just as BTI has achieved for decades.

But after a very rough few years, I understand if you're skeptical, and think BTI is a yield/value trap.

So here's more strong evidence that it's not.

Reason 3: Strong Execution On Its Smoke-Free Future Plans Means Decades Of Steady Dividend Growth Ahead

2024 Growth Consensus

Sales 7% -3% 4% 4% 7%

EBIT (operating income) 3% 22% 5% 6% 2%

(Source: FAST Graphs, FactSet Research)

Steady growth in sales, earnings, cash flows, and dividends are proof positive that BTI is NOT a value trap.

In fact, during this current bear market, BTI's earnings and dividends have grown at 7.8% CAGR, and 3.6% CAGR, respectively.

(Source: investor presentation)

Management is guiding for 4% long-term sales growth, and 8% long-term earnings growth.

(Source: September 2021 investor presentation)

This year, when BTI is down slightly in a red hot market, earnings in constant currency are expected to grow about 7%, with sales growth of over 5%.

By pivoting to a smoke-free future and investing in non-nicotine growth markets like Cannabis.

BTI's smoke-free future plans are objectively going very well.

(Source: September 2021 investor presentation)

In the first half of 2021, reduced risk product sales soared 50%.

(Source: September 2021 investor presentation)

All of its RRP segments are gaining market share and growing like weeds.


(Source: September 2021 investor presentation)

Oral nicotine pouches, the safer alternative to chewing tobacco, is growing even faster, at 63%.

BTI's execution of its smoke-free future plans has been very good.

BTI's sales, earnings, cash flows, and dividends are all growing, this is an objective fact, and disproves the bearish thesis that BTI is a value/yield trap headed down forever, possibly to zero.

But here's some more evidence.

(Source: FactSet Research Terminal)

  • growth consensus range 4.0% to 4.2% CAGR

Smoothing for outliers 25% margin of error to the downside, 10% to the upside.

  • 3% to 5% CAGR margin-of-error adjusted growth consensus range
  • 7% to 9% management guidance

(Source: FAST Graphs, FactSet Research)

Management says it can grow BTI's earnings at historical rates, and analysts think 3% to 5%. But for a company priced for -2.6% CAGR growth, it's clear the market is mispricing BTI's risk profile.

Any company that continues to grow steadily is objectively NOT a value trap, but potentially an anti-bubble Buffett-style "fat pitch".

Reason 4: Anti-Bubble Valuation Means Buffett-Like Return Potential From A Blue-Chip Bargain Hiding In Plain Sight

(Source: FAST Graphs, FactSet Research)

For 20 years investors, outside of bear markets and bubbles, have paid 13.5 to 14.5x earnings for BTI. This means a 91% statistical probability that about 13.5 to 14.5x earnings approximates intrinsic value.

And remember that during this time period BTI experienced its worst bear market ever, during the 2000 Master Settlement period.

In other words, back then investors were even more bearish on BTI than they are now. If BTI grows as expected, then it's highly likely that BTI will return to 13.5 to 14.5x earnings historical market-determined fair value.

BTI is the most undervalued global aristocrat on earth. It could deliver over 100% total returns in the next year, and that would merely be returning to historical fair value.

Here's what investors buying BTI today can reasonably expect.

  • 11.5% to 13.5% CAGR range
  • management guidance: 15.5% to 17.5% CAGR

For anyone with its risk profile, BTI is the best high-yield global aristocrat you can buy today.

Risk Profile: Why British American Isn't Right For Everyone

There are no risk-free companies and no company is right for everyone. You have to be comfortable with the fundamental risk profile.

BTI's Risk Profile Includes

  • political/regulatory risk (most notably plain packaging laws and tobacco taxes)
  • smoke-free transition risk (PM is the industry leader and BTI a distant second)
  • margin compression risk (in case of plain packaging, higher taxes on RRPs, and the potential for RRPs to prove less profitable than cigarettes) - thus far RRPs are actually more profitable due to favorable tax treatment
  • talent retention risk
  • supply chain disruption risk (such as the pandemic effects)
  • currency risk

And this is not a complete list.

There are no sacred cows at Dividend Kings. Wherever the fundamentals lead we always follow. That's the essence of disciplined financial science, the math retiring rich and staying rich in retirement.

Bottom Line: British American Tobacco Is Set To Soar And Too Cheap To Ignore

I totally understand why many investors are skeptical of BTI during its longest bear market in 35 years.

However, the facts are clear. BTI is NOT a dying company, but a steadily growing one.

Management's plans for a smoke-free future are going better than expected and the company is also one year ahead of schedule in cost-cutting. De-leveraging could be completed this year, and in 2022 BTI could start buying back stock at up to 7% of shares each year.

The bond market, credit rating agencies, and all 20 analysts that collectively know BTI better than anyone other than management, all agree, BTI has a bright future and is a screaming bargain at 7.2x forward earnings. That's a 50% historical discount.

The last time BTI was 50% undervalued it soared 1800% over the next 15 years.

Over the next five years, if BTI grows as expected and returns to historical fair value, it could triple in value.

In a highly overvalued market, BTI represents

  • high-yield investing done right
  • dividend growth investing done right
  • dividend aristocrat investing done right
  • deep value investing done right
  • total return investing done right
  • ESG investing done right

Simply put, BTI at the best valuations in 20 years, is smart investing done right.
