Not only do you have to look at the technical and fundamentals, you also have to take a look at the current environment. Smoking has been under pressure for quite some time and will continue to be for the near future. Cigar companies have been the latest target, and they have marketing towards younger people, unlike other recreations smoking companies. If you are looking for a long term investment in this industry, I would caution you to be aware of the surroundings so you are not caught out in a potentially shirking market.
