    That makes a lot of sense to me, blackoutbuzz, much more than BTI as the suitor.

    Talk about ironic: it was Imperial's acquisition of several RAI's brands and the Blu e-cig that partially enabled the LO takeover. Now a major shareholder of RAI (42%) is apparently considering Imperial. What goes around comes around...

    E-cigs are a fad

    I saw the article in today's WS Journal, and I cannot say that I'm surprised. My concern, though, is the resources that Reynolds and Altria have put into the e-cig category, and how their financial projections were at least somewhat dependent on success, replacing some revenue from falling traditional volumes.

    From what I can glean from the report, it's the tedious/difficult drawing of the vapor/smoke that has soured users of the e-cig product. I hope these "mechanics" can be dealt with, or else 2016 might be a bit dicey.
