BTI was the cash cow of REM and CFR for many years and has given a good D/Y ,the share is almost linked to the price of the pound, so if the rand is strong BTI will move down. As BTI is not listed on the top40 on the JSE, big investment management funds does not realy hold BTI , it is just the longterm personal , keep the certificate in the draw, investor that currently hold BTI . In the longrun BTI is keep , hold and forget , live of the div. share.
Comment about BTI price linked in some way to ZAR-GBP seems to be true - compare yesterday and 2day. Why is BT1 not part of top 40 index - They are the largest or 2nd largest co by market capitilisation so surely they should be part of top40.
