Share Name | British American Tobacco (BTI)
Trade Thesis | In a market that has made new all-time highs, tobacco giant BTI has lagged substantially, becoming a serial under-performer, with it’s market value being slashed by concerns over
– Volumes: a long term concern over decline in it’s product usage, driven by
– A healthier consumer
– A shift to new-age products
While the sector conditions remain uncertain, I have noticed a medium term technical shift taking place where the widely-watched 200-day moving average is slowly starting to turn higher after being in a downward trend for 20 months. Currently, the price is consolidating by trading in a sideways channel and nearing a potential break-up. It should also be noted that the weekly RSI is starting to regain bull territory, recently entering the +50 zone.
With price starting to stabilize, medium term traders have opportunity to accumulate the share within an equity portfolio.
