  1. Great company and I’ve sold a put on them as well. I figured (like you) that the option premium is always nice, and if we get assigned we have a good company for an amazing price and the dividend yield will be to die for! Nice post JiR!


    1. Thanks DI, it’s really great to get such positive feedback!

      As I said many times before, most big tobacco stocks seem to be fairly or undervalued right now. But since we already own two of them (Japan Tobacco, British American Tobacco), I must be even more demanding than usual. Otherwise our stock portfolio would have too much focus on just one subindustry.
