Top of the Tips: Share Recommendations
BAT Offers Strong Potential
Despite share prices having risen and a reduced yield of
3.6%, The Independent has BAT (British American Tobacco)
as a buy, citing the strength of emerging markets in developing
countries, and particularly the hope that western companies
will become able to start selling in China, a huge market.
Buy says The Independent, hold says The Telegraph.
The pharmaceutical giant will be paying out £4.5bn
to shareholders in the coming year as a result of buybacks
and dividends, offering a handsome reward for existing investors.
With a prospective dividend yield of 3.3% and strong prospects
for future growth, The Times has GSK as a buy.
It's Good To Talk, But How?
BT still face some uncertainty over the impact of growing
competition, with both internet telephony and the likes
of the Carphone Warehouse playing an increasing role in
the market. But The Telegraph believe they present a good
long-term prospect, trading at 12.5 times 2008 earnings
and a 5.3% yield. Buy, say The Telegraph.
Despite targeting a 3% - 5% increase in UK sales, a lacklustre
summer saw a 5% decline in sales, and Cadbury's potential
for growth looks limited. Their shares have underperformed
the FTSE average by 16% over the last 12 months, and look
like they may continue to disappoint. Sell, says The Times.
