Hard day to own shares, harder day for those in Ukraine. Surely tobacco is a fairly safe haven in times of war for your money?

Looks like investors are turning to tobacco as a safe haven for their money with inflation here to possibly stay. Solid cashflow, solid profit and solid dividends.

BATS divi yield is currently 7.7%. With the onset of rotation to value stock, assuming 5% would be acceptable return to investors and this implies BATS has an upside of nearly 40% from current price of around 3,000p

Wrote on 30 March that my longterm TP is around 3800. This is a buy and hold stock and you are rewarded with sumptuous dividend in the meantime.
