2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Guru Investment Theses on British American Tobacco PLC

David Winters Comments on British American Tobacco - Sep 21, 2016

British American Tobacco plc (“BAT”) (BTI) was one of the Fund’s first investments in 2005. The position has grown to become the Fund’s second largest stock holding, behind Reynolds American Inc. All along the way, BAT’s very capable management team has driven the operating margin up from the high 20s to mid-30s, doubled free cash flows to well over GBPii 3 billion per year, and raised the dividend by a 12% compounded annual growth rate. Shareholders of BAT have been rewarded nicely with an 18% average annual return since October 2005. BAT remains an important core holding for the Fund because it has historically been a dependable cash generator, particularly during times of uncertainty, the most prominent of which is presently unfolding in its home country. “Brexit” was a surprise to many and it is likely that in the U.K. business world there will be many winners and losers as a result of it. An immediate visible impact was the fall in the value of the pound sterling in June 2016, which could be net beneficial to BAT’s bottom line, as the company sells its products in dozens of overseas markets. Enhanced international consumer consumption power that comes with stronger local currencies versus the pound sterling could help promote overall sales growth. Another reason we remain investors in BAT is that it has an extremely modest equity compensation plan for executives, which contributes to extremely low Look Through Expenses.

Why the UK Is Headed for a Slowdown Reducing exposure to the UK due to David Cameron's misguided attempts to balance budget
In our global dividend portfolio, we hold a variety of international stocks including a sizeable number of holdings domiciled in the United Kingdom. Recently we have made concerted efforts to reduce our exposure to the United Kingdom. We sold some of our U.K.-based stocks including Sky PLC (SKYAY), and reduced our exposure to the holdings we kept (listed below). The companies we kept do not have an overly large exposure to the U.K. market or British pound. For example, oil is priced in U.S. dollars, so there is little currency risk in the energy holdings. Glaxo’s largest market (by country) is the U.S., so it earns substantial revenue in dollars, likewise for Pearson. Read more...
