Nesan Nair from Sasfin Securities chose British American Tobacco (BAT) as his stock pick of the day.

“I’m going with British American Tobacco, it has been sold down heavily. I think the rand weakness filtered into the positive movement in the share price today and yesterday, but all the rand hedges across the board, I think, are still reasonable bets in the current environment.”
