    EPS for MO estimated at 3.68 and 4.15 for this year and next vs. 3.48 and 3.75 for MO.
    MO financial and market share position stronger. So why is RJR selling at premium to MO?

    • didn't do a 1 for 3 reverse split, and start a
      repurchase program, technically we would be trading at about
      6.50 a share.
      However that wouldn't happen either,
      since that would amount to 47% yield when figuring the
      3.10 annual dividend..."sustainable dividend", as
      Schindler keeps saying...

      RJR by applying a 3.10
      annual dividend, on those split shares insulates the
      shareholders from falling too much lower.
      As time goes on
      that continued dividend payment will attrack big
      buyers. First we got to get pass Engle.

      I'd like
      to see MO hike their dividend, perhaps its time for
      MO to consider a 'like' deal, raise the dividend and
      do a reverse stock split...There are way too many
      shares outstanding anyway, billions!

      As a
      shareholder of both RJR and MO though, I would make sure the
      shareholders don't get penalized by that move...Let's say MO
      does a 1 for 10...then they should also payout 10
      times
      their current div. amt. 1.92 annual to 19.20 maybe even
      a little more to stabilize the PPS., and limit
      somewhat the shorting of the stock...

      I'll bet MO,
      who said, "they are studing options" have that
      suggestion in front of them now!

      Good luck..

        If RJR had done a 1 for 6 reverse split technically
        we would be trading at about 3.30 a share. That
        would amount to 94% yield when figuring the 3.10 annual
        dividend. And we'd all get our money back in about a
        year.

        Let's all contact the company and suggest this idea to
        them.

        In order to get the 47% div yield, you are dividing
        $3.10 by $6.50.

        If RJR hadn't done a reverse
        split, they wouldn't be paying $3.10 a year in
        dividends, they'd be paying $1.03 per share.

        Aren't
        all you RJR longs glad that you have Markit MeatHead
        on your side?

      • Shares Outstanding 2.37B. Think of what a 1 for
        10 and a 19.20 annual dividend would do for the
        company...lets make that an even 21.00 dividend instead of
        spending money repurchasing shares...
        We would have
        roughly a 200.00 stock with an 11% yield, and there would
        be only be 237mil shares outstanding....
