    How come BTI seems to open down

    Search it yourself. "Ex dividend date and price action".
    This is the date the stock price will drop a proportional amount due to the
    company paying out millions of dollars of cash.
    That's the date that the dividend money is transferred.

    Not when the post office delivers the check to your house.
