Tej Kohli writes about promising stocks that will survive the ebbs and flows of the economy, and it seems tobacco stocks are a promising investment.
The two biggest players in the tobacco game are Imperial Brands and British American Tobacco, ranking 8 and 7 on the Piotroski F-Score. The Piotroski F-Score is a way to assess the strength of a company's financial situation. Ranked with a number of 0 - 9, the higher the number the stronger the company and in theory, the more lucrative the investment.
At the time of publication, Imperial Brands offered a 4.86% annual yield in real terms.
Mr Kohli explains why, though tempting, investing in big tech stocks that are rapidly growing - but are volatile - may not be the best way to ensure you yield good returns. By investing in quality, reliable stocks for a longer period of time, there is more of a chance to gather significant funds.
