NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- There is one cigarette stock with a whopping 5.1% dividend yield and surprisingly solid growth for a business in a slowly declining industry. Since 2008, this company has grown revenue-per-share by 9% a year and dividends-per-share by about 12% a year. The company is expected to grow earnings-per-share about 7.5% a year over the next several years. The company's current dividend yield of 5.1% plus its expected earnings-per-share growth of 7.5% could give shareholders a total return of 12.6% a year for the next several years.
