What are analysts saying about Altria Group stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Altria Group stock:
- 1. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We see a FY17 EPS of USD 3.29 (guidance USD 3.26-3.32; cons USD 3.30). While assumed growth of 8.8% is within the company long term growth algorithm (7%-9%), with risk of Marlboro share loss (in our view), ABI potentially not as supportive as expected, and the valuation currently inflated (pricing in potential tax benefits and/or a PMI bid), we see risk of de-rating. We increase our PT to USD 71 to reflect long term support from the Nat Sherman acquisition. Updating estimates: Our FY17 EPS estimate assumes growth of 8.8% which is the same as previously. While we now see greater operational performance (EBIT growth of 5.9% vs. 4.2%) due to greater assumed pricing and the Nat Sherman contribution, this is offset by a greater tax rate (at 36% vs. 35.4%) as guided by the company. We increase our PT by c3% to reflect long term share gains from the acquired Nat Sherman brand." (2/17/2017)
- 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Estimates for Altria have been revised upward as Altria continues strong pricing power helps it to maintain margins. Overall we are optimistic about Altria’s subsidiary, Nu Mark LLC, which expanded the distribution of MarkTen XL e-vapor products and Green Smoke e-cigarettes in several lead markets. This should drive sales going ahead. Although the shares of the company are outperforming the Zacks categorized Tobacco industry in the last three months. The company’s growing market share in the e-cigarette category and efforts to adapt to the evolving consumer trends and develop less harmful alternative tobacco products are encouraging. However, the company is facing declining volumes, high federal & state excise taxes, exposure to strict anti-smoking rules. Further Altria is losing market share in the smokeless category." (1/4/2017)
- 3. Argus analysts commented, "We are also raising our 2017 estimate to $3.36 from $3.26." (5/9/2016)
