  • Big tobacco's big profits 🇺🇸 | Counting the Cost

    Smoking kills. So if you're in an industry where your product is damaging the health of people who buy it and they know it, then you should in theory go out of business. But shares in companies listed in the Bloomberg tobacco producers index have risen 351% since 2009, making it one of the best investments of the past decade. Graphic warning labels and taxes seem to have some impact on reducing the number of smokers but less so on industry profits which keep rising. And investors can't quit buying the stocks because operating profits continue to go up. Different tax regimes around the world mostly account for the difference in price. But governments are not as hooked as the consumers who buy cigarettes. Consumers cough up for higher prices becuase they crave the drug in tobacco - nicotin...

  • Eliminating Tobacco Companies From Investment Portfolios | Bronwyn King | TEDxSydney

    Bronwyn King, a Melbourne radiation oncologist, was horrified that she and her colleagues at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre were unknowingly supporting tobacco through their superannuation (pension) investments - an action which came at the expense of their patients, whose lives, and those of their family and friends, were ravaged by the effects of lung cancer. So she decided to do something about it. As Founder and CEO of Tobacco Free Portfolios, Browwyn King's collaborative work with finance industry executives has contributed to over 40% of Australian pension funds implementing tobacco free investment mandates, with (as of June 2017) $2.5 billion tobacco stocks now divested. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local com...

And investors can't quit buying the stocks because operating profits continue to go up. Different tax regimes around the world mostly account for the difference in price. But governments are not as hooked as the consumers who buy cigarettes. Consumers cough up for higher prices becuase they crave the drug in tobacco - nicotine. Without nicotine, addiction there would be no tobacco industry. The tobacco industry knows this and has diversified to develop other nicotine products like E-cigarettes. A "starter kit" - which includes an e-cigarette device, batteries, nicotine cartridges and other accessories — can cost upwards of $100. The electronic cigarette market has grown from just $50m in 2005 to an estimated $7.5bn last year, according to Euromonitor. It's all part of the unique economy of addiction.

In 2010, Rick Vasquez, was a senior analyst in the Firearms Technology Branch of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, when his office reviewed a device sent in by a company called Slide Fire. The device, which is known as a bump stock, helps the body of a semi-automatic rifle slide back and forth during firing, replicating the effect of a machine gun -- a consecutive and rapid spray of bullets.

Now, in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting, in which Stephen Paddock reportedly used bump stocks to help kill 58 people at a music festival, lawmakers from both parties have moved to ban the bump stock device, and even the NRA has hinted it wouldn't object. But Vasquez tells VICE News in an interview that may not have as much of an impact as many people think. And, he said, despite the popular outcry, he has no regrets about the ruling his team made.

CDC director who traded tobacco stock resigns Subscribe HERE For More News:https://goo.gl/XsUCR9 Read Original Article Here:https://goo.gl/d5iKqv President Donald Trump's top public health official resigned Wednesday amid mounting questions about financial conflicts of interest. Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald's resignation comes one day after POLITICO reported that one month into her tenure as CDC director, she bought shares in a tobacco company — the leading cause of preventable death and an issue she had long championed. Fitzgerald, a doctor and former Georgia Department of Public Health commissioner, assumed leadership of the agency in July and was close to former HHS Secretary Tom Price, who resigned in September after POLITICO reported his use of private jets. HHS Secretary Alex Azar, who was sworn in two days ago, accepted Fitzgerald's resignation early Wednesday morning, according to a statement released by the agency. "Dr. Fitzgerald owns certain complex financial interests that have imposed a broad recusal limiting her ability to complete all of her duties as the CDC Director," said spokesman Matt Lloyd. "Due to the nature of these financial interests, Dr. Fitzgerald could not divest from them in a definitive time period. After advising Secretary Azar of both the status of the financial interests and the scope of her recusal, Dr. Fitzgerald tendered, and the Secretary accepted, her resignation. The Secretary thanks Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald for her service and wishes her the best in all her endeavors." An internal CDC email, shared with POLITICO, said the agency's principal deputy director, Anne Schuchat, will assume the role of acting director immediately. Democratic lawmakers seized on the news of Fitzgerald's resignation. Sen. Patty Murray (Wash.), the top Democrat on the Senate committee that oversees public health, called it “unacceptable” that the former CDC director had such significant conflicts. “It is unacceptable that the person responsible for leading our nation’s public health efforts has, for months, been unable to fully engage in the critical work she was appointed to do,” she said in a statement. Democratic Rep. Louise Slaughter (N.Y.) said the CDC director's resignation resulted from her 2012 law, which bars insider trading by members of Congress and other government employees and requires disclosures of their trading habits. POLITICO reporters used the STOCK Act to file for records of Fitzgerald’s transactions. “This episode is exactly why I wrote this law and led the six-year fight to get it signed into law,” Slaughter said in a statement on Wednesday. “The American people deserve to know whether federal officials are upholding the public trust and adhering to the highest ethical standards, or using their powerful positions to enrich themselves.” The resignation drew mixed reactions from health advocates who work closely with the agency. "It's just completely untenable — you can't be the CDC director and buy stock in [tobacco companies] after you've been appointed," said Emily Holubowich, executive director of the nonprofit Coalition for Health Funding. In the wake of Price's resignation, Holubowich said, and with Fitzgerald's inability to divest of her other financial conflicts, the purchase of new tobacco stocks "broke the camel's back." Carl Schmid, deputy executive director of the AIDS Institute, said he was disappointed by the news. "We had high hopes for her," Schmid said, praising her public health background. He noted that she had not been as engaged as previous directors. “We never even had a chance to meet with her." Others said they were stunned and saddened by her departure. “She was doing a good job of leading the CDC,” said Trust for America’s Health President and CEO John Auerbach, adding he’s “disappointed because the CDC’s work is extremely important and it needs to have support from the administration and from Congress.” Former CDC Director Tom Frieden on Twitter wished her well and added that he hopes "the next director remains focused on using science to protect Americans from threats that arise in this country and anywhere in the world." It's not clear who will replace Fitzgerald. The public health community, which tends to favor Democrats over Republicans, was supportive of her appointment and her background in public health. In the early days of the Trump administration, reality TV celebrity Dr. Mehmet Oz was rumored to be a contender for the job. And there was worry that Trump could appoint someone who would not strongly advocate in support of vaccines. It’s unknown who Azar may want in the job next. Jerome Adams – who has a good reputation on Capitol Hill – was in contention for the job last year but appears to be settling well into his job as surgeon general, according to sources familiar with his work.

Alice is upset about her investments with Philip Morris. For decades tobacco has been a safe investment, but it's dropped significantly in the past few years. She wants to know if it's time to sell now or wait for a rebound. Original air date: August 6, 2017 - Hour 2, Call 2. Wes Moss is the host of MONEY MATTERS – the country’s longest running live call-in, investment and personal finance radio show – on News 95-5FM and AM 750 WSB.

The responses to questions are not meant to be personalized investment advice.
