Most probably because of Altria earnings and huge volume declines (-14%). Probably spooked tobacco shareholders overall, IMB also down.

Will recover once the short term traders dry their tears.

I used to work for BATS in UK. They used to give employees 800 fags a month until around 2011 when they stopped the perk stating 'tax reasons'....

BAT down on good news
25 Apr '19
On Bloomberg earlier on today there was an article about an ex employee who was trying to take BATS to court as they gave him 1,200 fags per month and now he has terminal lung cancer, lawyers are looking into it and many other ex employee's as well.

Don't know for certain, but I bet something is going on in the US: they're expecting tougher regulations over there, so I suspect there's been some sort of announcement.

Bats share price down on good news
25 Apr '19
LONDON (Alliance News) - The chair of British American Tobacco PLC said Thursday the cigarette giant remained in "good shape" for further earnings growth in 2019, as it continued to perform well.

On the same day I see that share price is down by >2%!

Can anyone explain why please? I read the full news report and found no obvious bad news further down.

Complete nonsense like so many reports. How could any sensible person think there's a direct link?
Thse 'youths' are probably on all sorts of other substances as well.
Anything to clobber the industry.

”FDA to probe potential link between seizure risk and E-Cigs”
A new FDA probe on seizures linked to e-cigarette usage has sent the share of tobacco heavyweights lower in early trading.
The FDA says it is responding to 35 reports of vaping associated with seizures, mostly involving youth and young adults.
In premarket action, Altria (NYSE:MO) -1.22%, Philip Morris International (NYSE:PM) -0.90% and British American Tobacco (NYSE:BTI) -1.69%.

RE: absolute

Cigarette makers British American Tobacco and Imperial Brands faded after the US Food and Drug Administration named National Cancer Institute director Ned Sharpless as acting commissioner to replace Scott Gottlieb, who announced plans to step down earlier this month.

“This reinforces our view that investors were premature to assume that Gottlieb’s departure would lead to a lighter regulatory hand over the tobacco industry out of Washington. It now appears the FDA will not skip a beat in its pursuit of tobacco regulations, and we continue to believe Congress will seek to become more involved in addressing the youth ecigarette epidemic during the months to come.”

hello

Took a couple of k position here on Friday. For once it's going in the right direction for me (usually as soon as I buy a share it goes south).

On the day it is ex-dividend, you cannot buy it and get the dividend.

Yes I understand that. I'm just trying to find out, if it goes ex-divi on May 2nd, can I sell them May 3rd or do I have to wait for another date... All I want is to get the Divi. Happy to hold as have no intention to sell but would just like to learn for future reference. Thanks.

I am not bothered to the day, always give a day or two leeway when buying and selling.
At the top of this page is an icon ‘financial diary’ clicking on that may help,
BATS pay a quarterly dividend.

Thanks Sidmadrid. How do you find out the Record date? I take it you cannot sell the shares before that record date if you want to receive the dividend?
