I'm buying 100 shares of RJR @ $33.64 with a $10.99 commission in my newly set-up AmeriTrade account. (I opened this account for the $75 bonus for $2,000 deposit which I received on 2/18/2003.)
This is the third time I bought RJR (last two times @ $47.80 and @ $41.80, respectively). I still love the stock for its valuation. Although its fundamentals are at danger from the squeeze from discount brands and massive marketing of MO, its brands are still holding value, its dividend is still very high ($0.95/quarter, 11.3% at my purchase price) and safe, and it still possesses a strong balance sheet.
