April was not an easy month for the largest London-listed tobacco stocks. As I observed at the time it was a US tobacco market shocker for Imperial Brands (IMB) and British American Tobacco (BATS) back then, although I remained optimistic on both stocks. Since then the shares have recovered and after a positive recent update from the former, how has BAT got on with its update today?
