No not watching, I own UST which gets hit in sympathy with all the cigarette makers flack but really, in comparision, has a very limited ligtigation risk.
Its problem was Conwood which is behind it. Owned 2 batches, one at 15 and other just below 15 that held for several years and sold last year when it bounced off 40. Bought in again at 28.58 just before last divie and 27.01 couple days ago.
For me it makes a comfortable anchor position for my folio although its below the normal 10% min I like to see. Good luck in your research
That was Conwood several years ago and also when I had bought at 15...has since worked its way thru the courts and verdict against UST upheld, 1 Billion+ bond had been posted, award payoff arranged and all yesterdays news.
UST now allowed by courts to carryon with its business; which means the recent divie increase, buying back shares and just plain old makin money for its shareholders. The recent dip to under 27 due to Mo losing their court case (which has nothing to do with UST)
However, as I said earlier...ya need to do your own research and then form your own opinions. Good Luck
