Почти 7% — поздравляю сам себя, т.к. на ветке я один )))
A rival boosts optimism for British American
Shares of British American Tobacco climbed 7% after the global tobacco giant's investors responded favorably to good news from one of its biggest competitors. Philip Morris International reported its second-quarter financial results this morning, and although its overall revenue was slightly lower compared to year-earlier results, top-line growth amounted to 9% after accounting for various accounting-related shifts, and adjusted earnings were far better than expected. Investors in British American took its rival's results as a sign that the global tobacco market remains healthier than some had feared, and they'll have an opportunity to see if the company can confirm their hopes when i t report s half-year results later this month.
