    Seems like a lot of positive comments about this stock, but when I pull it out to the 5 year chart it looks like a steady declining price. Any thoughts?

    Combined, MO and PM paid me $9105 in dividends this quarter. I really don't care who overpaid for the stock in 2017. It was their decision to buy it, not mine.

    A very ballsy retirement move, but you could take a portfolio of $1M, put it all in Altria, lock in $84K a year from dividends alone plus raises (track record of decades of dividend growth; it’s a “dividend king”); and if/when this goes to $70/share, your $1M goes to ~$1.9M; that $900K = extra $30K/yr for 30 yrs assuming no further appreciation.

    $114K/yr potential.

    Reading some posts kinda sounds like a few have already done this.

    so MO owns 45% of cronos right? looks like they are finally in the green on that purchase as marijuana stocks are performing well with hopes of federal legalization.

    Got back in two weeks ago. Don't know why i ever sold. A former Fed. Chairman, had a large portfolio. His entire holdings were in Muni Bonds and MO.

    Just FYI, in 2017 this stock was in the $70’s. Revenue and cash flow are virtually the same now, and the stock is $41. Forward PE under 10, yield over 8%.

    As my other positions reach a healthy price level, I’m selling and adding to MO. The dividend alone is a gem (and it’s safe). But there’s tremendous price upside as well, and very little risk.

    @Julian....see the Canadian pension plan news of selling off #MO.....think they're totally out now. Good to get rid of the weak hands.....guess they should sell all their mining and oil interests too.....basically sin stocks also.

    When do people think MO will start running? I was hoping to ride Oil stocks up and then circle back and grab MO with the profits. Isn't MO kind of "stuck' on the stock price for a while because of the JUUL purchase or will MO run to 50 or 55/share in 2021?

    NJ just opened the covid-19 vaccine to people 65 years or older, people with preexisting conditions from 18 to 64 years and smokers. Talk about a screaming buy signal for tobacco. NJ protecting it's revenue base.

    The new administration promised they will “follow the science” to determine health solutions (covid19). I predict a turnaround year for US vaping and JUUL based on this promise.

    Bill Spetrino just put out a newsletter titled, “The #1 Hypergrowth stock of 2021.” It was about, you guessed - Altria.

    Here are some bullet points:

    1. Since 1900, 97% of Dow Jones industrial gains have come from reinvested dividends; just 3% from capital appreciation.

    2. A pack of cigarettes costs pennies to produce and sell for $5-$11. Incredible pricing power.

    3. Governments too dependent on tax revenues to ban...so it isn’t just the smokers who are addicted.

    4. No ads/marketing means no new competition in the marketplace.

    5. Altria owns major stakes in all forms of tobacco, marijuana, beer and wine distribution, etc.

    Bill Spetrino is self-made decamillionaire. Started with Altria.

    I don’t smoke (against religion in fact). But I’m rather heavily invested here, after Viacom, Apple, Walgreens.

    At 8% yield, it’s about the cheapest it has ever been.

    #MO owns 45% of Cronos (cannabis) large amount of Juul, which they've already written off about 85%....10% of Budweiser and of course US premium cigarettes.....fantastic buy at these prices....just look at Cronos today....another stock they (#MO) wrote down to almost nil. Only upside on this sin stock. gl
