Philip Morris International: Great High Dividend Income Yield Of 6.7% With An Inelastic Priced Product

This article is about Philip Morris International (PM) and why it's a buy for the dividend income investor that also wants to take advantage of the overdone stock price dip. Philip Morris International is one of the largest manufacturer and distributor of smoking products. PM is a conservative investment for the income investor who also wants moderate growth of 8%.

Philip Morris International is 4.2% of The Good Business Portfolio (a full position). The company has steady growth and has cash it uses to increase the dividends each year.
When I scanned the five-year chart, Philip Morris International has an interesting chart going up and to the right in a choppy slope for 2016 through mid-2017 until the FDA stated it would regulate nicotine in cigarettes. Also, the first quarter's earnings report was not taken well, and PM dropped 20% in a week, I think this was much overdone. I think this provides an opportunity to buy a quality company at a very good entry price for the income investor and with potential moderate growth.
