The Nielsen report had pushed down shares of Imperial Brands, British American Tobacco and Altria between 1% and 3% on Tuesday. Imperial Brands said late on Wednesday that its figures were based on data from MSAi, which compiles data from over 300,000 stores, representing at least 95% of U.S. tobacco volumes. The company also said it expects U.S. industry volumes to fall between 4.5% and 5% in 2019, close to larger rival Altria's forecast of a 4%-5% drop.
The FTSE 100 was 0.1% lower, while the mid-cap FTSE 250 rose 0.4%. British American Tobacco and Imperial Brands were among the biggest drags on the main index after data from Nielsen showed cigarette industry volumes deteriorated in the four weeks to May 18. The session's trading came against the backdrop of continued uncertainty over China's trade dispute with the United States, after U.S. President Donald Trump said Washington was not ready to make a deal with Beijing but that he expected one in the future.
As the pound fell, the FTSE 250 lost 1.4% to hit its lowest point since March 29, when Britain was originally scheduled to exit the European Union. Dublin's main index, often regarded as a barometer of Brexit jitters, was also down nearly 1.4%. The turmoil was compounded when prominent Brexit supporter and Leader of the House of Commons, Andrea Leadsom, resigned from the government.
Britain's biggest domestic lender Lloyds Banking Group said on Thursday it would pay dividends quarterly from the first quarter of 2020, in a move aimed at distributing income to its 2.4 million shareholders more regularly and efficiently. The new approach will see the lender adopt three equal interim ordinary dividend payments for first three quarters of year followed by, subject to performance, a larger final dividend in the fourth quarter, the bank said in a statement. Lloyds is one of Britain's biggest dividend payers and distributed around 4 billion pounds to investors in 2018.
The FTSE 250 was up 0.3 percent, helped by gains in industrial and oil stocks. World markets saw an uptick after the U.S. said it had received an indication that Beijing wanted to make a trade deal. Washington earlier announced it would raise tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports.
British tobacco company Imperial Brands reported weaker-than-expected sales of its e-cigarettes on Wednesday, citing a temporary slowdown in the United States, helping to send its shares to their lowest level this year. The maker of Gauloises cigarettes and blu e-cigarettes reported higher half-year revenue in line with analysts' estimates and earnings per share that were above forecasts. Chief Executive Alison Cooper told Reuters a slowdown in the United States was to blame, with sales there hurt by a regulatory backlash against youth vaping.

The FTSE 100 ended 0.4 percent lower and the more domestically-focused FTSE 250 inched down 0.1 percent. Shell shed 1.4 percent to a month low and BP gave up 2.1 percent, as crude prices weakened after U.S. oil inventories rose more-than-expected with output reaching a new record of 12.3 million barrels per day. As sterling rose to multi-week highs with lingering hopes of progress in cross-party Brexit talks and ahead of Bank of England interest rate meeting on Thursday, exporter companies bore the brunt as much of their revenue is earned in dollars.

The maker of Davidoff, Parker & Simpson and Gauloises Blondes cigarettes said last year it would sell businesses, as it looks to roll out new vaping products to improve performance in a declining tobacco market. Imperial does not list performance indicators for the premium cigar business, but Jefferies analysts estimate it generates annual sales of about 345 million pounds and profit of about 85 million pounds.
The FTSE 100 was down 0.2 percent and the FTSE 250 dropped 0.1 percent. "What's clear from today's PMI numbers is that there are as yet no green shoots of spring for the euro zone," Markets.com analyst Neil Wilson said. Euro zone business activity barely grew in April as demand was sluggish even though prices rose modestly, surveys showed.

The FTSE 100, which earns more than two-thirds of its earnings in U.S. dollars, added 0.6 percent on its best day in a week - and the FTSE 250 was up 0.1 percent. Sterling lost more than a percent as May failed to sway hardline opponents of her European Union divorce deal with an offer to quit, while none of eight indicative options to break the Brexit deadlock won majority support in parliament. Tobacco giant Imperial Brands advanced 2.3 percent and British American Tobacco climbed 2 percent as brokerage Citi hiked rating on both stocks to "Buy" saying regulatory threat will probably move away from cigarettes.
