BAT should do a shares split of say 1 to 10, so that more people would be able to get in and benefit from their good dividends.

Public Bank again ah? Why, is there shortage of well managed cos in M'sia? Guess they don't include private companies

Don't let political bias cloud one's judgement. Have to give due credit to CIMB for going for growth instead of staying as jaguh kampung unlike some local banks here. As for BAT, can buy 100 shares what.
