Litigation Update: It's pretty apparent that as you go higher in the appelate process, there is less support for idiotic judgements. Hence, a few weeks ago MO got a favorable ruling in the Illinois bond decision, and the stock spurted 25%.

The stock could go back to $35 in a heartbeat -- but it's a chance to buy more super-cheap or just sit back and reinvest that 2%-per-quarter dividend.

Too bad they don't make Laramie cigarettes. Or Morley's.
____________________________________________________________

7% yield in a company with strong free cash flow generating abilities. Folks, this country was founded on tobacco (Williamstown, VA) and people were smoking tobacco long before "Call for Philip Morris" ran on "I Love Lucy" and "The Honeymooners."

If you want to pass, I understand. But with a 7% yield in a market yielding 1.5%, and with 50% of all stock gains historically coming from dividends, this is a Shaquille O'Neal layup. And the lawsuits are just another stubbed toe to overcome for The Big Fella.

I don't understand the hostility to this company. I have no problem with someone not wanting to own it, just like a pacificst might not want to own a defense stock. But analogies to slavery, disease, junk food -- with apologies to Ian Fleming, You Only Live Once. As long as you moderate your smoking and junk food, you should be OK.

I respect your rights to be wrong! (LOL).

This country was also founded on slavery. That's hardly an argument for it.

Strong, diversified company (cigarettes, food, beer). Owning 84% of Kraft hedges the risks from tobacco litigation (recent $29B verdit will be overturned). $50B in domestic and international tobacco sales. Enough said. Strong dividend. Come to where the flavor is....come to Marlboro Country!

12/19 - $28B verdict cut to $28M verdict. Recent stock buyback, too.

Anyone who advocates this "Call for Phillip Morris" stock needs to re-examine his life's priorities...morality vs. money.. Death, disease and junk food is the business of Phillip Morris.
